Walt Disney Drive

You can guess who this private road off of Mulholland was named for. In fact it’s the only street in L.A. County named for Walter Elias Disney (1901-1966). Why this one, especially since it only leads to the parking lot at the ultra-exclusive Curtis elementary school? Well, among the school’s biggest benefactors was Walt’s daughter Sharon Disney Lund (1936-1993), so you can connect the dots. For the curious, Walt’s own homes in L.A. were on Lyric Avenue, Woking Way, and finally Carolwood Drive.
