Grab your pith helmets and cargo pants! Members of D23, Disney’s official fan club, are in for a wild ride this fall at Destination D: Amazing Adventures. The biannual event is returning to Walt Disney World Resort November 19 and 20 and will celebrate the excitement of Disney’s past, present and future—from the award-winning True Life Adventure films to Pandora — the World of AVATAR.
Presenters and panelists for the two-day event, which will be held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, include Disney Legends Marty Sklar and Tony Baxter; Walt Disney Imagineers Joe Rohde, Chris Merritt, Jason Grandt, and Wyatt Winter; producer Don Hahn (“The Lion King”, “Beauty and the Beast”); and Walt Disney Archives Director Becky Cline. Presentations will focus on a behind-the-magic look at new and upcoming attractions and entertainment at Walt Disney World Resort, the evolution of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, a celebration of the Magic Kingdom Park’s 45th anniversary, a look at the groundbreaking artwork of animator and Imagineer Marc Davis, and much, much more.
Mickey’s of Glendale, Walt Disney Imagineering’s store, will once again have a pop-up shop at the event for attendees, featuring a selection of exclusive merchandise as well as limited-edition pins, apparel, and collectibles themed to the event.
More guests and panels (subject to change) will be announced in the coming weeks and months. Tickets will be available April 21. In the meantime, visit D23 for complete details on the event. And we look forward embarking on a thrilling adventure with Disney fans in November.
