Hot cider, classic holiday animation, a sumptuous dinner at one of Walt's favorite restaurants and a chance to see one of the most exclusive spots on the Walt Disney Studios Lot. What better way to celebrate the splendor of the season? Check in opens early at 4:00 p.m. at the Studio Lot in Burbank to allow for some holiday shopping time in the Disney and Employee stores. Then guests will be escorted to Legends Plaza, where they can enjoy hot cider and sweets in this Disney landmark that honors the talented men and women who have made significant contributions to the Disney legacy.
Then it's off for a tour of the original Animation Building to see where some of Disney's most beloved classics were created, before settling into Walt's own intimate screening room — a location rarely seen by the general public — to enjoy classic holiday animated shorts, including Pluto's Christmas Tree and Mickey's Christmas Carol.
Following this very special screening, guests will head over for a holiday feast at the classic Los Angeles eatery the Tam O'Shanter, in the city's Los Feliz area.
The Tam O'Shanter was a favorite restaurant for Walt Disney and his animators, and was often referred to as the Studio Commissary when Walt's fledgling company was located in the neighborhood. From the moment you pull up to this quaint, cottage-like establishment, you will be transported to another time and place. Decked out in its holiday finest, the Tam is a cozy, traditional Scottish restaurant. As you dine with your fellow D23 Members and their guests, you'll have the opportunity to see Walt's table, take a look at the wonderful artwork created by Disney animators for the Tam and be entertained by Dickens Carolers.
Oh, and don't forget that Christmas is a time of giving, and your friends at D23 would never let you leave without a special holiday gift to commemorate the evening!
