California has Disneyland and Florida has Disney World. But Chicago has Disney Home. Now a California couple who bought the house where Walt Disney was born 112 years ago plans to turn it into a historical site and museum. A spokesman for new owners Dina Benadon and Brent Young said restoration is scheduled to start next month, with the hope that the project can be completed by what would have been Disney’s 113th birthday, on Dec. 5, 2014. The house in the Hermosa neighborhood on Chicago's northwest side is said to have been designed by Disney's mother, Flora, and built by his carpenter father, Elias.
