I am a Disney fan and have been for most of my five decades on the planet. As such, I straddle a few places along the Disney timeline. The first is the Disney of my youth, which I remember well, and the Disney of my children’s youth, which for some odd reason, I remember better, probably because I don’t have to go back quite so far.
The Disney of my youth involved trips to Disneyland (I grew up in California) and movies like The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh, Robin Hood and Bedknobs and Broomsticks, to name a few (hey, I was a child of the 70’s. And 60’s). Those movies and trips to sunny Southern California are at the core of my love for all things Disney.
As a cub TV News reporter, I had a chance to go to the park as part of a press junket, prepare a routine and perform it in the park. It involved me singing and, if you’ve ever heard me warble, you know what a feat this actually was.
See.. here’s proof!
If you’re a fan like me, now’s your chance to relive some of that magic and you don’t even need to go far to experience it.
D23 Fanniversary Celebration 2013 is coming to a city near you. D23, in case you’re not familiar, is The Official Disney Fan Club and membership brings with it, all sort of pluses and perks. And now the party is hitting the road.
You can go here for all the details but here’s what you need to know:
The D23 Fanniversary Celebration runs from March 1st through April 7th in 10 cities around the country, including Orlando, Los Angeles and Chicago, to name a few. Each celebration will be hosted by a D23 Team Member and Disney archivist and will highlight amazing moments in Disney’s history. That includes movies like, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the first Pirates of The Caribbean film as well as cool points in the history of the theme parks, like the opening of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
