CHICAGO, Ill. -- You've heard of Disneyland, and Disney World, but what about "Disney-home'.

A California couple has bought the house where Walt Disney was born 112 years ago.

They plan to turn it into a historical site and museum, a "community resource with a mission of enhancing and exploring childhood creativity."

The hope is to have it done by a year from now.

To pay for this, the couple hope to raise half a million dollars with donors receiving prizes, ranging from having their names listed in a book in the house to a one-night stay there.

For the record, Walt Disney was 4 years old when the family moved out.
