    Event: D23'S "DISNEY AND DICKENS" CELEBRATION

    Some of you might've heard of this already, but just in case, here's a new event D23 just announced - "Disney and Dickens." If I recall correctly, they did a similar event last year which sold out. With it's return this year, I'm sure D23 really got positive feedback giving them enough reason to offer this to members once again. Like last year, this event is not Free and will cost you $175 per person.

    Here are the details:
    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!

    NOTE: Available only to D23 Members in good standing. Members may reserve a ticket for themselves and one (1) guests. Guests must provide their own transportation from the Walt Disney Studios Lot to the Tam O'Shanter Restaurant. D23 Members will be required to provide their membership number when reserving tickets. Tickets are very limited for this event. Tickets may be picked up only with a valid photo ID AND D23 MEMBERSHIP CARD. D23 Members who do not bring their membership card may not be admitted to the event. Ticketed Members who do not attend the event forfeit their place as well as all experiences, benefits, and gifts associated with the event. If you wish to request for sign language interpreting services for this event, please submit your request to [email protected] at least two weeks prior to the event date. All D23 Special Events are subject to change without notice. There are no cancelations or refunds, tickets are not transferrable

    I won't be there as the time conflicts with my class and internship schedule, but for those that do go, I look forward to hearing how this goes. More so if you were able to attend last year's event. It'd be great to hear what people that attended last year have to say about this event's return this year.

    Would love to do this but $175 is a lot to swallow. Getting out of work early is also getting tougher and tougher (I've asked for days off for more disney related activities than actual time off!).

    But those who do go to this, you're in for an amazing time. Tam O'Shanter is also one of my favorite restaurants. This is a guaranteed good time.

    175 dollars is ridiculous. It was $90 dollars last year, and got to see a movie at the El Capitan to boot. I'm sorry, but seeing short films in Walt Disney's screening room and dinner is not worth that much money.

    I think that is one of their selling points for this one:
    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
    With so many people wanting to do the quickly selling out tour, I'm sure a tour, if done right, of the animation building will be great especially those who love classic Disney history. I'm sure the tour will go more in depth on the animation building than the regular studio tour so that's definitely a big perk that catches my attention, but in my opinion their choice of day will definitely hurt sales.

    Worth it for you maybe... but it was certainly worth it for a bunch of Disney fans. This sold out pretty quick!

    I'd have been interested in this, but I'm already booked for a trip to WDW for Magic & Merriment. A tad ironic, as I live in Los Feliz about 10 mins from the Tam O'Shanter.
