Inside the windowless bunker where Disney stores its 'secret weapon'

staff used to call it the morgue, a windowless bunker of a building near corporate headquarters which stored drawings and sketches dating back decades. The very first pencilings of Mickey Mouse, drafts of the forest in Sleeping Beauty, underwater sequences in The Little Mermaid and millions of other scenes and fragments from films, all diligently stored in the building’s 11 vaults in Glendale, . The lugubrious nickname conjured mildewed arcana, a forgotten department two miles from the Burbank studio where paper went to die. A deceptive impression.
