Walt Disney is known for many things. He’s known for creating Disneyland and for working on plans for Disney World. He’s known for designing opportunities for parents and children to enjoy activities and entertainment together. Walt is also known for his unmatched fascination with trains. He loved trains so much, that he had a track built around his own private residence. He even had a small train on which he could ride with his daughters.

The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco celebrates all things related to Walt, his life, his creativity and his genius. This holiday season, the museum is hosting the “Home for the Holidays at Carolwood” exhibit, which celebrates Walt, his love for his family and his love for trains.

An elaborate, three-dimensional model of the Disney family home, which once stood on Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles, will be the most prominent element of the exhibition, featuring a miniature version of Walt’s steam locomotive, the Lilly Belle. Decorated with seasonal lights and greenery, this colorful and intricate scale model will be ceremoniously illuminated for the first time on Walt’s birthday, Wednesday, December 5, coinciding with the museum’s free admission day.

Additionally, The Walt Disney Family Museum will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary throughout 2019 with a year of family-friendly activities and workshops, exclusive events, and an exciting array of talks and screenings.
