Walt was a huge fan of miniatures.
He bought, collected, and even hand-made some of them. The Walt Disney Family Museum has about 1,400 miniatures in its collection (and about 450 on display in one of its galleries). His idea for the miniatures was to create little vignettes of America ("lands," if you will), place them on a train, and have the train tour around America. This project, which he called "Disneylandia," would be shelved and the idea would later be used on something bigger. Any guesses as to what it might be? (Answer: Disneyland!)
