Location: New Orleans Square, Disneyland

Sitting above Pirates of the Caribbean in Disneyland is an empty apartment that was once intended to be used by Walt Disney and his brother Roy during their overnight trips to the park. Most people know of Walt's apartment above the Main Street Fire Station, but this one would have offered up more space and more bedrooms for family and friends. In 2005, during the Year of a Million Dreams giveaway, the space was converted into the Dream Suite where one lucky guest could stay in the room for a single night:

One of the most overlooked parts of the suite can be seen from New Orleans Square in the ironwork on the patio overlooking the Rivers of America. Here in the ironwork guests can see in gold the initials WD and RD reminding us that this place was once intended for Walt Disney and Roy Disney!
