The streets at the studio are appropriately named.
Two of the flagpoles at the studio were actually used for the 1960 Winter Olympics.
There are walkable tunnels running underneath the studio!
The Partners Statue (aka the statue of Walt and Mickey) that is located in every Disney park around the world is also on display here.
There is a special space dedicated to archival work.
Walt Disney won a TON of Oscars, and a few them are on display in the archives.
Some of the buildings pull double duty during film shoots.
And at times, walking the studio lot felt like you were living Saving Mr. Banks.

Some of the buildings at Disney's studio in Burbank were actually relocated from the Hyperion Studios in Silverlake.
