Many theories have been suggested

  • Could it be that since the letter “M” is the 13th letter in the alphabet,  1313 would equate to “MM”?
  • Some suggest that, as in 13 is considered an “unlucky” number, the 1313 was Walt’s way of thumbing his node at critics that predicted the failure of Disneyland
  • Fact, fiction, or Disney legend?  That is for you to decide.  Whatever the reason, the development of 1313 Harbor Boulevard created a magical place revered and enjoyed by millions.
