Celebrate Disneyland’s 65th trip around the sun this Friday, July 17. San Francisco’s Walt Disney Family Museum hosts a day filled with special Disneyland-centric virtual programming, Disneyland trivia, and a few surprises along the way. Expect some of your favorite Disneyland memories coming to life—virtually! Start the day with well-known voiceover artists and producing partners Bill Rogers and Camille Dixon, as they share their own favorite memories of Disneyland, along with some of yours, as you are invited to submit your favorite Disneyland memory for Bill and Camille to read aloud.

Next up, join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Randy Haberkamp for rare home videos from Disneyland’s opening day in 1955. Then join former Imagineer Chris Crump as he discusses his illustrious career at Disneyland; his work over the years with his father, Disney Legend Rolly Crump; and what Disneyland means to him—followed by a Q&A. Enjoy a special Spotlight Talk featuring the unique Disneyland model in the museum. Finish the day with special guests and a surprise announcement about WDFM’s next virtual communityexhibition. All aboard for a fun-filled day of magical memories of THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH!
