Disney opens Vault for D23 Expo

Recommended Posts

This is rather late notice to make travel plans but if you're in the neighborhood, drop on by the Anaheim Convention Center this weekend for the D23 Expo. For the first time, Disney has opened their vault and is displaying for the public a collection called "Treasures of the Walt Disney Archive." The exhibits 92 pieces provide a walk down Memory Lane. It includes the golden book from the beginning of Sleeping Beauty, original Mouseketeer costumes (Annette and Cubby if you really must know), Captain EO's costume worn by Michael Jackson, as well as Captain Jack Sparrow's costume. The Walt Disney Company is considering sending this exhibit on tour across the country.

Disney doesn't do things in a small way so they are modelling their expo after Comic-Con. There will be panel discussions, live music, guest stars and screenings of upcoming movies and tv shows, including Tim Burton and his Alice in Wonderland, Tron 2, Toy Story 1 and 2 in 3D. It won't be as crowded as ComicCon as they expect only 30,000 attendees.

There's something for everyone on their schedule but if I were in Orange County, I'd make a beeline for Jack's costume first.
