WD-FM: The Official Walt Disney Family Museum Podcast

Located in the historic Presidio of San Francisco, California, The Walt Disney Family Museum is a center for art, animation, and inspiration. Since October 1, 2009, our nonprofit museum has celebrated the remarkable life and legacy of Walt Disney, thanks in large part to Walt's daughter, Diane Disney Miller, who wanted to share her father's story with the world. Now, in recognition of the museum's tenth anniversary, this podcast will do its part to honor the man behind the magic.

“Saludos amigos, a fond greeting to you!" Join us as Bri and Chris take a closer look at Walt’s 1941 South America Goodwill Tour and the resulting films Saludos Amigos (1943) and The Three Caballeros (1945) in the newest episode of WD-FM: The Official Walt Disney Family Museum Podcast. Learn more about how this timeframe was the "toughest period" of Walt's life, why the FDR administration wanted Walt to be a cultural ambassador, and how Disney Legend Mary Blair's art style was transformed by this trip.
