    Destination D Orlando Details - Attraction Rewind

    D23 is celebrating past attractions at the Walt Disney World resort in this year's Destination D event, scheduled for November 22nd and 23rd. Highlights include panel discussions with MiceChat favorites Marty Sklar, Bob Gurr and Alice Davis. Also expected to be in attendance are the fantastic Becky Cline, Bill Cotter, Stacia Martin (whom we adore), and Michael Kelley. But what will really have fans buzzing is the one night recreation of Pleasure Island's Adventureer's Club, Comedy Warehouse, Mannequins and 8 Trax, along with a classic "New Year's Eve" celebration. The entire event will take place at the Contemporary Resort's convention center.

    BURBANK, Calif. - March 26, 2014 - Walt Disney once said, "We keep moving forward—opening up new doors and doing new things—because we’re curious. And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." It’s in that spirit that guests this fall will have the opportunity to visit-or revisit-some of the most beloved Disney attractions of yesteryear. D23 Destination D: Attraction Rewind presented by H2O Plus will take place November 22 and 23 at Walt Disney World Resort. D23: The Official Disney Fan Club will bring Disney archivists, Imagineers, Legends, and luminaries together to celebrate fan favorites such as Adventure Thru Inner Space, If You Had Wings, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with rarely seen concept art and images; vintage video clips; and hours of revealing stories. In addition, there will be a full day of presentations dedicated to the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair, which debuted beloved attractions like it’s a small world and Carousel of Progress.

    Presenters and panelists include Disney Legends Marty Sklar, Bob Gurr, and Alice Davis; Walt Disney Archives Director Becky Cline; Disney and World’s Fair historians Bill Cotter, Stacia Martin, and Michael Kelley-and more to be announced.

    During the weekend, guests will be able to explore a special exhibit designed by the Walt Disney Archives in honor of the event.

This celebration of the Downtown Disney nightlife district will include areas dedicated to the Adventurer’s Club, Comedy Warehouse, Mannequins, and 8 Trax. And of course there will be a "New Year’s Eve" celebration to cap the night.

    Plus, for the first time, Mickey’s of Glendale, the famed Walt Disney Imagineering store, will set up a pop-up shop at the event for attendees, featuring a selection of exclusive Imagineering merchandise as well as limited-edition pins, T-shirts, and collectibles themed to the event. The shop will also carry a special line from H2O Plus, whose products are featured at Disney Resort Hotels.
