A Visit to The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library for a D23 Exhibit

On July 6, 2012 The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library welcomed the D23 for a fabulous new exhibit that will be open until April 2013.  This exhibit features artifacts from Walt Disney’s personal Collection including 12,000 square feet of cartoon sketches, costumes, storyboards and  props. There is even an exact replica of Walt Disney’s office, which is amazing  and fabulous with Reagan Oval Office up another hall. These two Presidents one of a corporation the other of The United States of America both coming from Hollywood on two different paths. The different costumes were amazing:

I think this was Cruella Devilles Dress from “101 Dalmatians”

Belle’s Costume from Broadway Musical “Beauty and the Beast”

The Original Tinkerbell Costume from Dream Disney Campaign in 2008

They also had this amazing Chest set that was Walt’s personal Chest Set.

Then they had a couple other really neat items from the 1984 Olympics.

All and all it was a fun time at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library for a D23 Exhibit. The next time you’re in Southern California you should definitely go visit  Ronald Reagan Presidential Library for a D23 Exhibit it’s on until April 2013 and it’s only about 45 minutes from Universal Studios so if you’re doing the whole Southern California visit; I strongly recommend it.

My name is Sheila and I am the founder of Cooking Underwriter. I am an Underwriter by day with a passion for Gluten Free Cooking and Baking. Who happens to love Disneyland Resorts and Walt Disney World for many reasons, The Gluten Free Food Options, The Rides, The Restaurants in addition to the fun that is had by all when visiting. I visit Disneyland an average of two to three times a month and have been to many celebrations there over the years. Including Weddings, Birthday Parties and I also attended the 25th Anniversary Homecoming Party. I currently reside in Los Angeles, California with my husband and daughter. I live about an hour or so from Disneyland.My love of Disney first took hold, when I was a child and my Mom would take us to Disneyland 3 or four times every summer. My family really went to Disneyland in the Spring and Summer but that was always okay. After my husband and I were married and our daughter was born we joined and became annual pass holders and have been visiting frequently over the last 13 years. I also love visiting Walt Disney World which I believe is also full of magic wonderful memories. I haven’t visited Walt Disney World as many times as I have Disneyland but I always have fun when I go.
