A Walk in the Park: Walt Disney World Edition – Destination D

By Krista Joy

Last weekend Disney fans had a chance to go back in time. D23, the official fan club of Disney held an event called Destination D: Attraction Rewind. This special event was held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The programming was wonderful, and I think just about all of us present learned some things we did not know about Disney History. No video or photography was allowed as presentations were given by the current and past Disney Imagineers. However we were allowed to take photos of a special exhibit called Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives. The exhibit featured collectibles and memorabilia from Disney Parks, as well as Disney collectibles from the 1964-65
New York World’s Fair. Continue after the page break and have a look…
Items in the exhibit  included a figure of the purple dragon Figment, a horse and a pig that were featured in the World of Motion attraction at Epcot, and a vintage Disneyland Toy Factory MOLD-A-RAMA machine where guests at the World’s Fair could have their favorite Disney character made in a plastic mold for just 25 cents!
