Coming to the Atlantic Dance Hall at the Walt Disney World Boardwalk hotel for ONE DAY ONLY, it's the D23 Disney Fanniversary Event 2013.
This event is THE place to be if you are a Disneyana fan or Disney history buff. Members of the D23 community along with Disney archivists host this annual event, which takes fans behind the scenes of beloved "magical [Disney] moments through rarely or never-before-seen film footage, concept art, photography, and exclusive interviews with many of your favorite Disney Legends and luminaries."
What magical moments, you might ask? All kinds of them, including:
- Beloved movies such as Peter Pan, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and the first Pirates of the Caribbean film
- Beloved characters, like Mickey Mouse and Chip ‘n’ Dale
- Beloved WDW park attractions, including those that are missed, like EPCOT's Horizons and The Magic Kingdom's Mickey’s Toontown
- the openings of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland, the launch of The Disney Channel, and the momentous founding of The Walt Disney Company itself
Tickets cost $21 for D23 members and $35 for non-members -- purchase information can be found at the official registration page. This annual event is THE big one for big fans; if you're one of them, don't miss it.
