Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s edition of Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia, the weekly series that introduces us all to another little tidbit of Disney trivia! Along with Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Heidi from Heidi’s Head, and Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, I’m Mike, writing here at My Dreams of Disney! This week I’m sharing you a question from Dave Smith’s book, Disney Trivia from the Vault, in which a reader asked Mr. Smith the following question:
Justin from Los Angeles, CA, writes: “What is currently inside the space that was once Walt’s apartment above the Disneyland Fire Station?
Mr. Smith replied: “Walt’s apartment above the Disneyland Fire Station is still there and is still used occasionally by Disney family members and Disneyland executives. It is still furnished similarly to the time when Walt used it. One major change — there used to be a fire pole from the apartment down into the fire station below that is no longer there.
Mr. Smith’s book is chock full of great questions and answers that were asked of him during his time answering questions for the articles “Exploring the Archives”, “Archives”, and finally “Ask Dave” during his time with the Disney Channel Magazine, Disney Magazine later on, Disney Insider, and now the D23 website. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is a Disney trivia buff. You can link over to the book page on Amazon.com from the link above.
Wouldn’t you love to see inside that apartment? I would! That’s a great book!

Can you imagine sliding down the fire pole, lol? I really enjoy reading Dave’s book, Thanks for sharing Mike.
Yes! I’ve read they took the pole out, because too many people kept trying to climb up it, lol! I bet you can’t wait to see that in person this summer!
