Walt Disney struggled financially the majority of
his early years. While his father went from one failed business
venture to the next, Walt began to find success in the late 1920's,
but used the majority of the profit he made to build newer stories
or to create new short films.
In 1937, Walt and his team released the first full
length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. While most
fans know that Walt used the majority of the profits to build a new
studio, there is one purchase that Walt made that now makes Disney's
Hollywood Studios home.
One of the things Walt always wanted to buy himself
was a nice car. While he had cars in his adult life, he always
promised himself that once he had the money, he would buy himself a
real nice car. So sitting just being the Trolley Car Cafe, you can
see the first really nice car Walt ever bought for himself. And not
only that, this car was the actual car owned by Walt Disney himself!
