California 2009 Recap Part 1 – Disney Studios, NFFC Disneyana Convention, Disneyland’s 54th Birthday & D23 Disneyland USA Event

Hi everyone!

I have had a productive trip to California, which included the yearly day trip to the Walt Disney Burbank Studios. For the first time we had a chance to tour Feature Animation. What a treat that was! Photos below include the Michael Eisner building (below, left) and The Walt Disney Archives (below, right). You can see that the Archives is really gearing up for D23.

Disneyland’s 54th Anniversary:

As always, I was here for Disneyland’s Birthday.  It is hard to believe it’s already been 4 years since the big 50th celebration! Monorail blue passes by (below, left). The birthday sign for Disneyland announces the rededication at Town Square (below, right).

D23 Disneyland USA Event – July 17th 2009

D23 hosted a wonderful event, with a panel discussion as well as the movie “Disneyland USA“.  Panel guests included Imagineers Tony Baxter and Bob Gurr, former Disneyland President Jack Lindquist, Disney Chief Archivist Dave Smith and more!  We were not allowed to take photos backstage except a group one at the end (below, right).
