D23 Presents Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives the Reagan Library
This is too exciting the D23 Fan Club and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library have collaborated to present Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives the Reagan Library coming to the Reagan Library in July of 2012. The exhibit plans to be 12,000 square feet, the largest exhibition ever curated by the Walt Disney Archives and the largest temporary exhibit ever housed at the Reagan Library. Ronald Reagan and Walt Disney were longtime friends this event will show both their dreams. The exhibition features more than 500 artifacts from nearly nine decades of Disney history. Over 50% of which have never been seen by the public including models, props, costumes, set pieces and artwork from throughout Disney history. I REALLY want to go to this exhibit to bad its in California, I have to figure out a way to get there! Either way if I don’t I can not wait for all the pictures surface.
