    D23's First Anniversary Party's....

    Haven't seen any post about this yet, (maybe I just don't know where to look!), so I thought I would post some information in case anyone else was planning on going. There are two events planned. The first is in WDW, and the second is in DL. I am hoping to make it to both, but we will see how the ticket situation goes!
    So, who else is planning on going?

    D23's First Anniversary Party at Walt Disney World: Friday, March 5, 2010

    01.29.10 - To celebrate our first year of making Disney magic for fans around the world, we're throwing a party created with Disney fans in mind! Join the D23 Team at the Walt Disney World® Resort for a wonderful night of magic and memories.

    Join the D23 Team at the Walt Disney World Resort for a spectacular night of magic and memories!
    After checking in at the Magic Kingdom, guests will have free time to enjoy the park's attractions and shows at their own pace. In the evening, attendees will enjoy one of two private dinners inside the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon, where piano music will fill the air and you'll take a look back at D23's first fun-filled year. Awaiting guests will be a mouth-watering buffet dinner of gourmet barbecue offerings, from slow smoked short rib of beef served on mesquite polenta to jalapeno cheddar cheese corn bread and much more!

    Following dinner, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy more attractions or view the majestic fireworks spectacular, Wishes. Then, as the Magic Kingdom is closing to the general public, D23 Members and their guests will be escorted into Mickey's PhilharMagic for an exclusive viewing of this 3-D extravaganza, which combines colorful animation and soaring music to create a dazzling spectacle. Afterwards, Walt Disney Imagineering will present insider details about the recently announced Fantasyland Forest expansion project for the Magic Kingdom.

    And to cap the night's celebration, guests will partake in a sumptuous dessert buffet in Fantasyland, where they will be able to enjoy a private party with fellow D23 Members, riding several of the park's signature attractions that recall the splendor and nostalgia of some of Walt Disney's most famous animated classics. And at our members' request, guests will mix and mingle with beloved, classic Disney characters, as well as a few friends you may not have seen strolling through the park in a while!

    Every guest will also receive a special, limited-edition commemorative pin in honor of D23's first anniversary, the perfect gift to remember this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    D23's First Anniversary Party at Disneyland: Wednesday, March 10, 2010

    01.29.10 - Ever dream that Disney's biggest fans could take over Fantasyland for one night? We do, too! To grant that wish, D23 is taking over all of Fantasyland for a once-in-a-lifetime bash to celebrate our first anniversary.

    D23 is taking over all of Fantasyland for a spectacular bash to celebrate our first anniversary.
    The magic begins in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle — after the park has closed to the general public — as D23 Members and their guests are led into the most magical realm of all, Fantasyland! Enjoy your favorite Fantasyland attractions alongside your fellow D23 Members — from Peter Pan's Flight to it's a small world — open to enjoy over and over again! And at our members' request, guests will mix and mingle with beloved, classic Disney characters, as well as a few friends you may not have seen strolling through the park in a while! We know our members love Disneyland nostalgia, so guests will have the chance to get an up-close look at the "Electric Runaround" (designed by Disney Legend Bob Gurr after a turn-of-the-century Oldsmobile) Walt used to escort VIPs throughout Disneyland — and grab a bibbity bobbity beauty shot with Cinderella's Crystal Coach!

    D23 Members and their guests will savor specialty coffee and an array of tantalizing Disney-inspired desserts including pastries, cookies, cupcakes, and of course, Mickey-shaped krispies! A "no host" beverage bar will also be available to toast this memorable affair.

    And, naturally, there will be a few D23 surprises, including a special, limited-edition commemorative pin in honor of D23's first anniversary, the perfect gift to remember this enchanting event.

    Date: Wednesday, March 10, 2010
    Location: Disneyland, Anaheim, California

    Event Ends: Midnight
    Cost: $65 per person

    I'm thinking that it my be some of the characters that were specific to Fantasyland. One that would make since with us being in Philharmagic would be Sorcerer Mickey.

    Re: D23's First Anniversary Party's....

    As we get closer, I'm starting to see more of what is going on while we are there. Friday has Deb from allears.net holding a meet in the morning. Then dinner in the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon, followed up by the rest of the D23 event that evening. Sat, I just may take the "Nature-Inspired Design Segway Tour" in the morning, since it's only available on Sat. and Tues. mornings, then head over for the WDWRadio meet at 1pm. I'm also tempted to add the "Behind the Seeds Tour" on one of the other days.
    I have 4 full days, and I know it will never be enough!!!! I'll just have to get back soon then I was planning. If anyone else wants to join for the Segway tour, the more the merrier.

    Now that I think about it, I need to also start thinking about what to do the next day when I get to Disneyland....
