Disney Deco (Part One)...
Many of the resorts, hotels and building structures the Mouse has done over the years have had a decidely Art Deco influence. Mainly because it is a style that was a popular design movement when Walt Disney was running his studio at the height of its pre-live-action days. Anyone that has seen pictures of Walt's office or the Burbank studios in the late 30's/early 40's will recognize the style. If you like they stylings of the Maestro's headquarters you actually can decorate your home to reflect that. The Mouse recently authorized a line of furniture called the Walt Disney Signature Collection based on a latter part of the Art Deco movement known as Art Moderne.
Here are some lovely examples of what Imagineers do best when trying to capture the past...

Thanks for this look at those beautiful art déco hotels... but I am missing Disney's Hotel New York...
Kem Weber designed the original deco furniture for the Disney Studio's, from the animation desks to office chairs. Some of the pieces are worth a pretty penny these days.
Perhaps this is what needs to be done at Disneyland; demolish all 3 towers and build something GRAND!
