Over at The Walt Disney Family Museum in Northern California, the month of August is sure to be a fun one. For members and non members, the museum will have plenty of things to do.
Recently, the museum added a few new events for the month of August. Currently, there are two talks set during the first week of the month; Behind-the-Scenes of Walt’s Vision for Today and Disneyland at 60: The Story of the Disneyland Hotel.
Behind-the-Scenes of Walt’s Vision for Today (Aug. 1)
In conjunction with the exhibition, Tomorrowland: Walt’s Vision for Today, guest curator and film director Brad Bird presents an in-depth presentation of Walt Disney as a technological innovator, futurologist, and thought leader. Hear about Walt’s original concept for the Tomorrowland project, its revolutionary rebuild of 1967, and take a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the exhibition. See rare video footage, hear stories, and learn more about Walt’s fascinating passion for the future.
The program will be followed by a signing with Brad Bird at 5pm; the signing is open only to program ticket holders.
Tickets on sale Monday, July 27 at 10am.
Disneyland at 60: The Story of the Disneyland Hotel (Aug. 8)
Designed to be a nearby upscale resort for families who would travel long distances, the Disneyland Hotel was as revolutionary to the hospitality industry as Disneyland was to the amusement park business. Join author and historian Don Ballard for a discussion about the history of the hotel and its visionaries, Walt Disney and Jack Wrather. View images and film clips that trace the evolution of the resort, and hear from special guest Alfred Nicholson who supervised the construction of the hotel from 1960 to 80.
The 1pm show is sold out, but tickets for the 3pm show go on sale Monday, July 27 at 10am.
