D23 offered members of the media and also those who purchased the Sorcerer Package for the D23 Expo a an early preview of Disneyland The Exhibit. This exhibit is a collection of some fantastic artifacts from Disneyland. These artifacts date back to the beginning of the park and include name tags, elements of attractions, attraction vehicles, and much much more.
The evening started early for members of the media who were given the opportunity to tour the exhibit before a ribbon cutting ceremony took place. Before the ceremony began the Dapper Dans and Jambalaya Jazz Band entertained those in attendance. The ceremony was hosted by Walt Disney Company Vice President of Corporate Communications Adam Sanderson. He was joined by Becky Cline of the Walt Disney Archives and Sorcerer Mickey Mouse for the cutting of the ribbon. One the ribbon had been cut, those with the Sorcerer Packager were given the opportunity to experience the exhibit. Later in the evening John Lasseter addressed the group for a few moments. This was clearly a highlight for those in attendance with one person even shouting “we love you John!”
This event really kicked off the D23 Expo that will continue through Sunday 16, 2015. Full coverage of the D23 Expo can be found here.
