Did you know that you can actually book a VIP experience to visit the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank with Adventures by Disney?! It's an amazing experience for any true Disney fan. We were fortunate enough to win our trip and it was the most incredible day! The highlight for me (aside from visiting the archives and actually seeing Hayley Mills!) was visiting the Disney Legends Plaza and exploring all of the amazing people that have shaped Disney entertainment and parks into what it is today. Without them, Disney would have no magic. What exactly is the Disney Legends Plaza you ask? According to Wikipedia: "The Disney Legends Awards is a hall of fame program that recognizes individuals who have made an extraordinary and integral contribution to The Walt Disney Company. Established in 1987, the honor was traditionally awarded annually during a special private ceremony; since 2009, it has been awarded biennially during Disney's D23 Expo.
Recipients are chosen by a selection committee, formerly appointed and chaired by Disney Legend Roy E. Disney, Walt Disney's nephew, former vice chairman and director emeritus of The Walt Disney Company. The committee consists of long-time Disney executives, historians, and other authorities. Besides the award statuette itself, each honoree is represented by a bronze commemorative plaque featuring the recipients' handprints and signature if they were living when inducted, or simply an image of the statuette emblem if the induction was posthumous. The plaques are placed on display in Legends Plaza at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California, across from the Michael D. Eisner Building. Legends also receive a Disney Golden Pass, a lifetime pass to all Disney theme parks." If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Walt Disney Studios, do NOT pass it up!
