Ninety years ago today, Walt and Roy E. Disney launched a modest little business venture — which became The Walt Disney Company. The rest, as they say, was history (and a whole lot of hard work).
D23 is marking this momentous occasion in grand style. D23 Presents Treasures of the Walt Disney Archive will open today at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago — Walt’s birthplace! The exhibit was designed specifically for the museum and includes nearly 300 artifacts from Disney’s 90 years of innovation. Highlights include original artwork and animators’ models used in the creation of many classic Disney films, Audio-animatronics from the Disney Parks, and even a recreation of a working animator’s office. From the earliest Disney animation (pre-Mickey!) up to Pirates of the Caribbean and Enchanted, it’s a celebration of all things Disney. What better way to say happy anniversary?
Tickets are on sale now and D23 Gold and Silver Members receive special discounts.
