  • My True Disney Geek VIP Experience! Breakfast with Walt!

    A little over a week ago, a dear friend called me up to ask if I would like to join him for a special event at the park. He had won a silent charity auction, and the prize was breakfast for 8 people at Walt's apartment!!

    At 7:45 on Friday, April 7th, I met up with him and the 6 others he invited. We met a guide at the exit gates, and were escorted in, while the crowds of people lining up at the turnstiles looked on.

    Then, there we were, walking through the green door on the right-hand side of the firehouse that led to the steps that ascended to a dream beyond my wildest imagination:



    Our guide invited my friend to ring the doorbell "to make sure Walt wasn't sleeping". (Talk about getting the warm fuzzies!!) We wiped our feet on the doormat, and entered the glorious Victorian-decor themed home of Walt.

    We were welcomed to sit down. It's like we didn't even want to touch the carpet, because it was "sacred ground". :lol: But, I promptly took the chair to the left of the famous lamp. Much to my surprise, it was a gliding rocker, so I was a little shocked at first, because I thought I broke it. :blush: She told us a few stories, and I just sat there, gazing in awe at the lamp on the table. Then, she passed a framed photo around, and it was at that moment I felt the most special - in the photo, Lillian was sitting in the exact chair where I was sitting, with Walt just behind her, his hand on her shoulder. I was sitting in Lillian's chair!!!! :blink:

    She showed us the little kitchenette, which consists of a small counter and sink, with cabinets above, and a small fridge below. Atop the counter is Walt's toaster and his grilled cheese sandwich-maker. On the right side sits a large gold-rimmed porcelain pot with matching cups that reads "Tom & Jerry" (a warm alcoholic drink served during holidays). She opened the top cabinet, and all of his dishes are still inside, including the glass baby bottles belonging to his grandkids.

    Next, we got to see the bathroom. The glass-doored shower stall was fairly large, with 4 shower heads, placed about 18-inches atop each other. I noticed that tissues were stocked in the old tissue holder, so I helped myself to one. :blush:

    Here I was, emerging from the door onto the patio:




    Once on the patio, we were welcomed to take as many photos as we liked. So, needless to say, I took about 40 from up there.

    I took a couple of Main Street as viewed from the patio:





    And, I was able to take one with the apartment door open,. There's only a mirror in the patio entryway, so there's not much to see but my reflection. But, I took it anyway.



    Breakfast was incredible. We were treated to pastries, fresh fruit, eggs with cheese, sausage, and fresh biscuits, plus orange juice, hot cocoa, tea, and coffee.







    We finished up with breakfast and then were told it was time to end the tour, but that "more magic was waiting for us outside the apartment". We were escorted back through and down the stairs, and over to the train station. We were promptly escorted through a side door, and all the way back to the Lilly Belle!!!

    The Disneyland ambassador rode with us, telling us stories during our "Grand Circle Tour", and we took a TON of photos.



    We disembarked at Main Street, feeling like the biggest VIPs ever.

    I think I have fulfilled my lifelong quest of geekdom!! :yea:

                  I couldn't stop grinning all day long - even when I had to go to work later in the afternoon!

                  Thankfully my boss totally understood why I needed that morning off. He knew it would be like a religious experience for me. :blush:

                    You lucky, lucky lady.

                    I've had the honor of standing on that patio watching guests go by during my short stint in Security there.

                    Buffy's been able to go in there too, and I'm SOOO JEALOUS!
