D23’s Destination D Celebrates 75 Years of Disney Animated Features

Third time’s the charm—or Prince Charming, as the case may be. D23: The Official Disney Fan Club is bringing Destination D: 75 Years of Disney Animated Features to the Disneyland Resort August 11-12.

The two-day event inside the newly re-Imagineered Disneyland Hotel will celebrate Disney’s feature animation legacy of heart-tugging emotion, dazzling artistry and unforgettable songs and music that began with the “fairest of them all”—”Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”—and continues to this day with such upcoming fare as “Brave” and “Wreck-It Ralph.” Some of the top Disney animation historians, authors and legendary animators of today will host this trip through the magic of Disney feature animation.

Highlights include a panel on how Disney animated features have influenced Disney Parks around the world, rare and never-before-seen artwork and film footage, plus a special salute to ”Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (the film that started it all) along with numerous surprises.

On Saturday, August 11, the incomparable Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix will perform, and on Sunday, August 12, Disney Legend Alan Menken will perform some of his most memorable songs from many modern-day Disney film classics.

Is this an event where there is capacity for everyone who gets a ticket to see all the events (like Magic & Merriment) or will capacity at events be less than the number of tickets sold (like the Expo)? Looks like a great event, hope to be there!

Sounds good.

I really hope that there will be love for not just the classics, but also for some of the more recent animated films, like Bolt.

I’m confused about two things:

1)In my D23 Fanfare newsletter it says tickets go on sale April 19th. Is the FanFare wrong?

2) This post says tickets go on sale 10 AM PST, we are in daylight time. Do you mean 10 AM PDT or do I need to spring forward to 11 AM?

Will Ridley Pearson be at this one like he was at the last one?
