Walt Disney museum on target for October opening in San Francisco

Posted Monday, June 22, 2009 10:09 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Still under construction, with an opening date of Oct. 1, the museum will feature 10 galleries, starting with Disney's beginnings on a Missouri farm. Among the artifacts is the form on which a 16-year-old Disney lied about his age (changing his birth date from 1901 to 1900) to train as a Red Cross ambulance driver in World War I France; he arrived as the war ended. Exhibits include listening stations and more than 200 video monitors as well as interactive displays.

..and im soo there for that too.. Probably not the first day.. Dont want to appear too Dorky..

So Raven-Phile, when ya going? ;)

Though Im semi-baffled at why San Francisco?

Its about a 6hr drive (under good conditions) from DL, which kinda makes it hard to bundle a trip. Only thing close to that is Pixar Studios, but thats certainly not a driving force to a Walt Disney Museum to me, since Pixars history with Disney is a bit more recent (on the scale of Disney history).

You would think it would be better built in a location to easily bundle Disney nuts to DL and a (short) trip to the musuem.

But this may be one of those, build it and they will come, regardless of locations.

Well, my wife is from San Francisco, so I'm sure she'll want to make the trip out there. :)
