The Disney Legends awards were announced and the Haunted Mansion's own Leota Toombs Thomas will be one of the honorees at the D23 Expo! Sadly, her award is being presented posthumously (however in a grim way, this is slightly appropriate given the attraction that made her famous). Also Don Iwerks, the son of Ub Iwerks, is being honored for his contributions including Circlevision 360 and Star Tours.
