    Re: the last photo

    Probably not the last photo, but it is my understanding that this is a photo of Walt at home after his lung removal in November of '66 - and before he went back into the hospital for the final time.

    Not sure it was. Keep in mind that photo is purportedly the last photo of Walt taken at Disneyland. Not necessarily the last photo of Walt.

    If fact, for decades the Company claimed this photo was the last photo taken of Walt (taken at WED in Glendale):



    And for that reason, it was selected as the only photo of Walt to be placed in Club 33 back in 1967 (and it's still there in Lounge Alley today).

    Who knows? Perhaps even that one was only the last photo of Walt taken at a work location, and perhaps the family or others have other photos of Walt taken later. But for decades the Company claimed the photo of Walt with the Pirate was the "last."

    That's amazing. I wish I could have that photo signed by the photographer.

    I also love the beautiful white castle with blue accents. None of that ugly pepto-bismol pink. ugh.
    I was just admiring how lovely the castle colors were! What a great pic!

    Problem is, Walt Disney was too honest and cared too much about people

    I think Walt Disney would have made a great President!

    The last photo of Walt in the Park was taken in October of 1966. It was taken by Disneyland photographer Renie Bardeau. Walt was not feeling well and told Renie he had one shot, thats it, and he had to move on. Walt was posed, the shot was taken and we have a wonderful image of Walt enjoying his park one last time.

    I've seen it, and I'm sure you've seen it as well. It was taken in 1966 and he's in front of the Castle with Mickey in an antique auto. There are also shots from the same shoot with him surrounded by children and him surrounded by characters. He looks very tired and a lot older in those pictures.

    I'm sure someone can post a picture or two ~
