I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough stories about the history of Disney’s most beloved attractions. This year’s D23 Destination D event is all about those classic attractions from yesteryear. On November 22 and 23 Disney fans can join D23: The Official Disney Fan Club as Disney archivists, Imagineers, Legends, and luminaries all come together to celebrate fan favorites such as Adventure Thru Inner Space, If You Had Wings, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with rarely seen concept art and images; vintage video clips; and hours of revealing stories. In addition, there will be a full day of presentations dedicated to the 1964–65 New York World’s Fair, which debuted beloved attractions like it’s a small world and Carousel of Progress.

Scheduled presenters and panelists include Disney Legends Marty Sklar, Bob Gurr, and Alice Davis; Walt Disney Archives Director Becky Cline; Disney and World’s Fair historians Bill Cotter, Stacia Martin, and Michael Kelley.

The weekend will end with an exciting evening event—Pleasure Island: Rewind. This celebration of the Downtown Disney nightlife district will include areas dedicated to the Adventurers Club, Comedy Warehouse, Mannequins, and 8 Trax. And of course there will be a “New Year’s Eve” celebration to cap the night.

Plus, for the first time, Mickey’s of Glendale, the famed Walt Disney Imagineering store, will set up a pop-up shop at the event for attendees, featuring a selection of exclusive Imagineering merchandise as well as limited-edition pins, T-shirts, and collectibles themed to the event. The shop will also carry a special line from H2O Plus, whose products are featured at Disney Resort Hotels.Read More »D23 Destination D: Attraction Rewind Event coming to Disney World this November

D23 Announces Fall Events

With D23 launching its first Expo tomorrow it seems like an odd time for the club to be looking forward. But for all the members who can’t make it to Anaheim for the event, perhaps you’ll find something in your area you can attend later this year.

  • October 7 – D23 and The Lion King Roar into Anchorage (Anchorage, AK)
  • October 7 – D23 and Poppins Breeze into the Lone Star State
    (Dallas, TX)
  • November 7 – D23 Day at The Walt Disney Studios and Archives (FREE) (Burbank, CA)
  • November 18 – D23 and Poppins Flies into Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA)
  • November 20 – D23 and The Lion King Roar into Spokane
    (Spokane, WA)
  • November 25, 2009 – D23 Night at The Princess and the Frog

One of the complaints I’ve heard the most about D23 is that other than the Magazine, there just isn’t much offered for the average fan. This roster seem much too limited for a club that a company the size of The Walt Disney Company can pull off. The other complaint is about the cost of the club. We might see some movement on that next year.
