The moment I saw this barn, I just can't believe that this is the childhood playground of Walt Disney. Yep, the iconic Philanthropist and the major figure in American Animation Industry once lived in Marceline, a town surrounded with farmlands. This barn stood still beyond time and just few yards away is Walt's dreaming tree where he spent hours dreaming the ultimate dream of his life.
Inside the barn is just ordinary and nothing much to see but, this barn is Walt's Happy Place. As we are enjoying the amazing Disney Magic in movies and the great sights and attractions in Disneyland and Magic Kingdom, those can be traced back down the memory lane in Marceline. As the young Walt made his first entertaining prowess inside this barn using animals in costume. Well, his audience was not happy about it so; his mom had him return the money to the audience. LOL.
Okay, I left my footprint in this barn, I mean, I did left my signature and message inside this barn. If you are going to visit Disney's Barn and his Dreaming Tree in Marceline, Missouri , please bring a sign pen with you. There is no CVS or Walgreens in this area. Yep, no store in this area. The nearest WalMart is about 15 minutes away.
This is the only sign that you have to look to reach this area. Parking space is probably less than 5 but, it's plenty for you. Not so many visitors came here to visit.
Disney loves this barn that is why; he recreated this barn in his home in California and used it as his workshop.
At the front of the barn. This looks like the farmland of my uncle back in the Philippines , (wink) .
Have you seen the movie So Dear To My Heart? If you don't , I found the video and added it below.
I have pictures inside the barn, I will be posting it here next time.
Thanks for stopping by.
