Tam O’Shanter Restaurant and Walt Disney

The historic Tam O’Shanter Restaurant and Walt Disney go hand-in-hand.  After all, this legendary restaurant in the Atwater Village section of Los Angeles wasn’t too terribly far from the old original Disney Studio on Hyperion Avenue.  The Tam was where Walt and his talented team of animators, and eventually his Imagineers, could conduct business and enjoy the awesomeness that is Tam O’Shanter.  In fact, when pulling up to Tam, you can actually see an incredible resemblance to the cottage in the classic Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs.
