D23’s Destination D Celebrates 75 Years of Disney Animated FeaturesThird time’s the charm—or Prince Charming, as the case may be. D23: The Official Disney Fan Club is bringing Destination D: 75 Years of Disney Animated Features to the Disneyland Resort August 11-12.

The two-day event inside the newly re-Imagineered Disneyland Hotel will celebrate Disney’s feature animation legacy of heart-tugging emotion, dazzling artistry and unforgettable songs and music that began with the “fairest of them all”—”Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”—and continues to this day with such upcoming fare as “Brave” and “Wreck-It Ralph.” Some of the top Disney animation historians, authors and legendary animators of today will host this trip through the magic of Disney feature animation.
