          The studios are not open to the public. You cannot officially visit the studios!! I was invited by one of the former Disney animators. I got a private tour by one of the Disney employees.

Burbank Disney Studios 01

Ein kleiner Traum ging fuer mich in Erfuellung als einer der ehemaligen Disney Zeichner mich zu einem Essen und einer privaten Tour durch die Disney Studios einlud.
Well, a dream came true for me!!!! I was invited by a former Disney animator. He was visiting the studios and took me along. I was so overwelmed. I always loved Disney. I do drawings myself since I am 8 years old.
Walt Disney war relativ eigen. Die Tueren zum Studio blieben damals der Oeffentlichkeit verschlossen und dies hat sich bis heute nicht geaendert. Es gibt keine gefuehrten Touren. Nur durch Kontakte zu den Angestellten macht erst ein Besuch moeglich.
Auf dem Gelaende gibt es ein Restaurant, Starbucks Coffee, ein Disney Store fuer die Angestellten und deren Familienangehoerigen sowie ein Museum.

Walt Disney was quite distinct. He did not want to have any outsiders at his studios. Till today, the doors to the studios remain closed to the public. There are no tours available. The Studios also include a restaurant/cafeteria, Starbucks, a Disney Store and a museum.

Im Hintergrund zu sehen ist der Kleiderschrank aus dem Film "The Chronicles of Narnia". Neben dem Kleiderschrank gibt es im Museum Originalskizzen aus div. Animationsfilmen sowie Auszeichnungen, etc.
Taking a picture at the museum with our nice private tour guide of today (he is or better to say was responsible for Finance. Sadly to say, in 2010 I found out that he was let go after more than 30 years! The financial crises is the problem). The picture was taken in front of the wardrobe of  NARNIA THE CHRONICLES.

The Jim Henson Studios - Home of the Muppets

Thanks to a sweet guy, I finally entered the sacred ground of the Jim Henson Studios. I had a nice time. It was interesting and nice to meet a friend of a friend over there. Thanks!
JHC was founded in 1958 by Jim Henson. The studios actually were built by Charlie Chaplin in 1917 and were sold then in 1953. Sadly to say, the company does not own the Muppets any longer.
