I attended the D23 Destination D Celebration of 40 years of Walt Disney World in May, 2011 and it was a spectacular event.
You can read my review of the event, here.
So, when word was released by D23 about a similar event being held this summer, I was pretty excited. I’ve also spoken to a few of the presenters and there is going to be a heavy 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair presence. If it even comes close the the Destination D event from 2011, then it will not disappoint.
Will we see this many Disney Legends in Florida again?

DESTINATION D: ATTRACTION REWIND presented by H20 Plus: Walt Disney once said, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” It’s in that spirit that guests this summer will have the opportunity to visit—or revisit—some of the most beloved Disney attractions of yesteryear. Destination D: Attraction Rewind, held July 26 and 27 at Walt Disney World Resort, will bring Disney archivists, Imagineers, Legends and luminaries together to celebrate fan favorites such as Adventure Thru Inner Space, If You Had Wings, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with rarely seen concept art and images; vintage video clips; and revealing stories. In addition, several presentations will be dedicated to the 1964–65 New York World’s Fair, which spawned beloved attractions like it’s a small world and Carousel of Progress.
