As part of Disney’s 100th anniversary celebration, D23, the Official Disney Fan Club, is hosting a Gold Member visit to Walt Disney’s hometown of Marceline, MO, on June 3, 2023.
D23 invites its Gold Members back to Walt’s boyhood hometown for a one-of-a-kind experience that includes exploring the Walt Disney Hometown Museum, visiting Walt Disney Elementary School, strolling down Marceline’s own “Main Street, U.S.A.,” and even a special dinner reception outside Walt’s former farmhouse.
Attendees will also get to witness a clock dedication ceremony from CITIZEN at the Walt Disney Hometown Museum Garden.
The event also includes:
- Special presentation and Q&A with Bob Wilson, retired CEO/COO of Retlaw Enterprises, the Disney family’s private corporation
- Lunch at a choice of one of Marceline’s local restaurants
- Motorcoach transportation for the round-trip journey from Chillicothe, Missouri, to Marceline
- A commemorative gift created exclusively for this special occasion
“I’m glad I’m a small-town boy, and I’m glad Marceline was my town,” he once said of his home town.
The cost is $350 (+$7 Processing Fee) per ticket, and D23 Gold Members may reserve a ticket for themselves and up to one guest.
Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, March 22, at 10am PT / 1pm ET at D23.com, where you’ll also find all the fine print details for the event.
D23 estimates the event will begin at approximately 9:30am and will last until about 9:30pm.
