Below is an official Press Release

D23 Anniversary Party at Disneyland!

A very limited number of tickets are still available at www.disney.com/D23 for this incredible evening.  The party will take place in Fantasyland after Disneyland’s normal operating hours — and all Fantasyland rides will be open.  (Yes, this means no huge waits to enjoy Dumbo and Peter Pan’s Flight, among others!)

There will also be some very special Disney guests on hand, and I wanted to let you know who’s planning to attend.  In addition to D23 Members, of course, the party will play host to a number of VIPs who have contributed to Disney’s legacy, including:

  • Imagineers Bob Gurr and Tony Baxter
  • Actor Kevin Corcoran, from “Old Yeller,” “The Shaggy Dog” and “Swiss Family Robinson” (among others)
  • Bill Farmer, Disney Legend and the voice of Goofy
  • Margaret Kerry, the live-action model for Tinker Bell
  • Dave Smith, Disney Legend and chief of the Walt Disney Archives
  • “LOST” actor Dan Roebuck, who portrays Dr. Leslie Arzt on the hit TV series
  • Actor David Stollery — best known as Marty in “The Adventures of Spin and Marty”
  • Denny Newell, senior show director for Disneyland

The D23 Anniversary Party will also feature some really exciting surprises ... and while many will be under wraps until the party, I’m able to tell you a few of them: There will be the chance to see the electric car that Walt Disney used to transport VIPs throughout Disneyland; appearances by some rarely seen Disney characters; and dessert and beverage stations throughout Fantasyland.  It’s going to be a very special event.
