Attached is an article marking the construction of the 20 acre facility for the Disney studio in Burbank (California):

"By 1930, the Walt Disney studio had grown in fantastic fashion. Instead of the 25 employees of 1929, there were now 40 people...By the end of the year there were 66 employees...In 1931 the total number of personnel had jumped to 106...When 'The Three Little Pigs' came along in 1933, the studio had grown 1,600 square feet of floor space in 1929, to 20,000 square feet. A hundred and fifty people were now turning out the Disney productions... In 1937, all the employees were still jostling each other... From around 600 employees in the summer of 1937, the organization had grown to almost 900 by the winter of 1938." In the new studio's animation building, there will be room for around 900 artists alone. And the animation building is but one of 21 buildings."

Today, Disney employs some 133,000 souls and seems not to suffer any difficulties finding enough room. It has been said that Walt Disney always wanted his crew to remember that "it all began with a mouse."
