In case you haven’t heard, The Walt Disney Company is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and during the 2022 D23 Expo, we learned just some details about what Disney was planning for the Disney 100 Years of Wonder Celebration for the Walt Disney Company.
Disney has been fairly quiet about the details of the celebration, but we do know that the Disney100 anniversary celebration at Disneyland Resort will officially begin on January 27th, 2023! And gradually, more events and information about the celebration have been trickling out!
One of these celebrations is the Disney 100 Exhibition. The Walt Disney Company has partnered with the Franklin Institute to host the exhibition. The world premiere exhibition will immerse guests in beloved stories that have been dazzling fans since 1923.
The Walt Disney Archives is opening its vault of treasures, showcasing more than 250 of its “Crown Jewels,” rarely-seen original artworks and artifacts, costumes and props, and other collections. The exhibit will open on February 18, 2023, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and proceeding on a North American tour to Chicago, Illinois, and Kansas City, Missouri.
Exclusively for this exhibition, Disney has curated special behind-the-scenes glimpses into the creation of the company’s most popular characters, films, shows, and attractions—from Disneyland to Walt Disney World and beyond.
Additionally, there are ten immersive themed galleries, all featuring moving stories, interactive installations, and exciting history to take guests on a journey through 100 years of The Walt Disney Company, starting with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs all the way up to Strange World, as well as the latest members of the Disney family—Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic.
D23 members should keep an eye on their email for a promo code for access to presale tickets. Members of the Franklin Institute can also take advantage of the presale. Presale ends November 15, 2022.
