Inscription.  
The Bungalow was built in 1935 as the original home of the Disney Publicity and Comic Strip Departments. It was constructed at the Disney Studios on Hyperion Avenue in Hollywood and moved to the Burbank location as part of the construction in 1939-1940.

At the Disney Burbank lot, the building housed many of the support services. Payroll, Publicity Support, Traffic and finally the Post Office were located in the building.

The structure is the last remaining example of the “California Bungalow” type architecture that remains from the Hyperion studio facility. Its attractive style and utility, starting in the early years of the company, give it a special place in the history of the Disney lot.
 
Erected 1990 by The Walt Disney Studios.
