Take a Peek Inside Walt Disney’s Former Technicolor Dream House

By Kathryn M.
Built in 1962 for Walt and Lillian Disney, the Palm Springs abode is now available for $1.1M.

At first glance, you probably wouldn't suspect the playful interior hiding behind the facade of 2688 South Camino Real in Palm Springs, California. But you'd be in for a surprise once you passed through the bright red front door, because all it takes is one step inside to see why Walt Disney's former desert vacation home was dubbed his "Technicolor Dream House." 

The home, located in the Indian Canyons neighborhood of Palm Springs, was built for Walt Disney and his wife in the early 1960s and remained in the family until 2015.

Named the "Walt Disney Technicolor Dream House," the single-story residence embodies a playful spirit throughout, starting with the entryway. 

The main living spaces are energized with bold colors, shiny tiled floors, and pop-art furnishings. A wall of sliding glass doors are draped in Mickey-Mouse curtains.

The four-bedroom, four-bath residence features a vibrant interior, brought to life with bursts of color, playful patterns, and of course, the requisite Disney-themed decor. Otherwise, the home offers the best of Palm Springs indoor-outdoor living, including a private backyard with a pool and mountain views.
