Walt Disney Elementary School is a historic elementary school building located at Levittown, Tullytown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was built between 1953 and 1955, with additions built in 1964 and 1967-1969. The original section is a one-story, steel frame building faced in orange brick with a flat roof and reflective of the Modern Movement. It features large, multi-framed rectangular windows with aluminum sashes. The first addition was for a library and the second for a two-story classroom and larger library. It was renovated in 2005-2006. The school was built to accommodate the growing population with the development of Levittown and dedicated on September 24, 1955. The dedication was attended by its namesake Walt Disney (1901-1966).[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1]
