Registration for the Hunt is open to both D23 Member and the general public. (Registration for the Hunt is separate from Destination D.)



    The weekend’s activities will illuminate the rich history of Walt Disney’s “Project Florida.” Destination D: Walt Disney World 40th will feature a remarkable gathering of Walt Disney World pioneers, retrospectives, screenings of rare and newly discovered film and TV footage and lively presentations that will give D23 members an unprecedented look at this truly spectacular World.



    All Destination D guests will also receive a complimentary, limited-edition reproduction of the 1970 “Preview Edition” of the Walt Disney World souvenir guidebook from the Walt Disney Archives Collection. The 22-page, colorful book is just one of the gifts Members will receive.

    Disney just sent out a correction:

    Correction: the date the tickets go on sale for Destination D: Walt Disney World 40th will actually be February 24th (Not 2/17).
    I've fixed the date in the release posted above.

    And I will be busy taking care of another event LLOLOLOLOL
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
