December 15 marks the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney’s passing, and to honor the man, we launched “Walt Week: Celebrating a Legacy of Imagination, Creativity, and Innovation.” To honor the occasion, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club is honoring Walt with a series of features available to guests at, in its quarterly publication Disney twenty-three, and at Disney Parks around the world.

On December 15, guests at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland are invited to join the celebration of Walt’s extraordinary life by sharing a message on Memory Boards that will be placed at each resort. The boards will be on display for all to see at D23 Expo: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event, from July 14–16 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Locations and Times for Memory Boards (subject to change):

  • Disneyland Resort: The gallery inside the Main Street Opera House at Disneyland park from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m
  • Walt Disney World Resort: Inside One Man’s Dream at Disney’s Hollywood Studios from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Disneyland Paris: Inside the Liberty Arcade on Main Street, U.S.A., at the entrance of “Statue of Liberty Tableau” from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Hong Kong Disneyland: Inside Art of Animation on Main Street, U.S.A., from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

We hope you will join us in celebrating Walt Disney’s remarkable life—and enduring legacy.


  • Disney has been a part of my life forever, because he was also a part of my mom’s, and that legacy just amazes me to no end. Walt Disney’s words have helped me through difficult times of caregiving and loss, which I wrote about in a tribute to him.

  • Thank you Walt Disney for changing my life and making the world and a better and happier place!

  • Thank you Walt for having a vision of building Disneyland and Disney World. And last but not least, all of those who have held the helm since Walt’s passing and continued his dream. We all know Walt is proud and seeing all the happy faces on the happiest place on Earth.

  • Aw, why not Disneyland Shanghai Resort?

  • What a nice way to honor Uncle Walt. I wish I was going to be at one of the Parks to leave my own message. I am grateful for Walt’s imagination, innovation, and vision. He is the inspiration for me and many others, to keep moving forward and have the courage to make our dreams come true.
