D23 Destination D: Attraction Rewind — Party Like It’s 1964!

posted on March 26th, 2014 by Jeffrey Epstein, Manager, Marketing


Remember If You Had Wings? Did you love Adventure Thru Inner Space? Recall your first time taking the dive on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea? So do we at D23: The Official Disney Fan Club!

November 22 and 23 at Walt Disney World Resort, we’ll be celebrating beloved attractions of yesteryear during D23 Destination D: Attraction Rewind presented by H2O Plus. Not only will the event celebrate these attractions, but Disney Legends such as Marty Sklar, Bob Gurr, and Alice Davis will be on hand for a full day of presentations and panels in honor of Disney’s contributions to the 50th anniversary of the 1964-65 World’s Fair in New York City, where attractions like Carousel of Progress, “it’s a small world”, and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln made their debuts.

In addition to two jam-packed days, there will be an exhibit curated by The Walt Disney Archives, created just for Destination D. Plus, the weekend will end with a special nighttime party—Pleasure Island: Rewind, a party inspired by the Downtown Disney nightlife district. Look for 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.

And for those with an eye for shopping, Mickey’s of Glendale, the Walt Disney Imagineering store located in Glendale, Calif. will create a pop-up shop just for the event! Expect collectibles inspired by the attractions and entertainment of the past, as well as a selection of WDI merchandise.

As a matter of fact, I DO remember If You Had Wings. :( You haven’t remade over Buzz Lightyear for the celebration, have you?

An Adventurers Club area? I am guessing it will be jam-packed. Great idea Disney!

This takes place only a couple weeks after the Congaloosh and the Adventures in Charity show.
3 different events, all incorporating memories of the Adventurers Club on Pleasure Island. Can’t wait!

This is a great idea. I miss the real Mannequins Dance Palace. Please bring it back permanently!
