From October 10 to November 14, 1931 Walt and Lillian Disney embarked on a vacation that took them to the Grand Canyon, St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri, Washington D.C., Miami and Cuba. They sailed back home on the liner California by way of the Panama Canal. While in Kansas City, Walt received the Legion of Honor from the Order of De Molay. 

In both St. Louis and Washington D.C. he visited the local zoo. This photo and this article are related to his visit to Washington. Enjoy!

I don't yet know how to order this new book / catalog, but I definitely will pick up a copy!

I was very much looking forward to the biography of the voice of Cruella De Vil, Betty Lou Gerson. Unfortunately, while the author means well and while her book is clearly a labor of love, I learned absolutely nothing new about Lou Gerson's work for Disney, which is very disappointing and which means that I cannot in good conscience recommend this book.
