In 1937, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" became an immediate success and proved the worldwide market for animated features. In order to expand and meet the expectations of his audience, Walt saw a need to increase the size of his studio. With profits from "Snow White," he made a deposit on 51 acres of land in Burbank and began designing a modern studio specifically for the purpose of making animated films. Walt was personally involved with all aspects of designing the studio. From the layout of the buildings to design of the animators' chairs, nothing was left to chance.
