Contents [ show ] Concept and Construction Walt Disney and his business partner-brother Roy were heading a Hollywood film studio before their idea of a theme park formed.
Walt Disney's original concept was of a permanent family fun park minus the "negative element", which he felt traveling carnivals often attracted.
While on outings with his daughters Dianne and Sharon, Walt realized there were no parks with activities both parents and children could enjoy together. Over time, Walt had received numerous letters written by people wanting to visit the Disney Studio lot and to meet their favorite Disney character.
Realizing a functional movie studio had little to offer to the visiting fan, he then began to foster ideas of building an area at his Burbank studios for tourists to visit and take pictures with Disney characters set in statue form.
His ideas then evolved to a small play park with a boat ride and other themed areas. Over time, Disney's ideas continued to evolve into a concept for a larger enterprise; that enterprise became what is known today as Disneyland.
Disneyland was partially inspired by Tivoli Gardensbuilt in in Copenhagen, Denmark and Children's Fairyland built in in Oakland, California. Another influence on the Disneyland concept was Walt's interest in model trains.
Hazel George, a nurse who treated Walt's chronic pain on a daily basis at the studio, suggested in that he take some vacation time and visit the Chicago Railroad Fair, which he did, along with Ward KimballDisney Studios animator and train enthusiast. Walt's fascination for trains was also encouraged by another studio animator, Ollie Johnston.
Soon, Walt built the Carolwood Pacific, a miniature steam train layout in the back yard of the Disney residence on Carolwood Drive. Walt delighted in giving visitors rides on his miniature train.

It arises from the effects of basic physics— the photon nature of light and the thermal energy of heat— inside image sensors and amplifiers. Beside physical methods to modify the limits of interior space, there are also some design decisions and tricks that can change the perception of a visual space.
Therefore, it’s possible to correct interior without redesigning or destructions – breaking old walls and making new ones, for example, with the help of optical illusions that change visual perception of interior space.
