August already?! That means in just a week, Colorado Dad and I will be heading to Anaheim for a long weekend to celebrate 75 years of Disney Animation at D23′s Destination D event. For this week’s blog hop theme of “August Calendar Cover”, I thought I’d share one of my favorite moments from a previous Destination D – last year’s celebration of Walt Disney World’s 40th anniversary.
For anyone who visited EPCOT in the 80s, you’ll probably recognize this pair. Yep, that’s Figment and his pal, the Dreamfinder – the stars of the original Journey Into Imagination attraction. Fans have long asked (or maybe it was begged) for Disney to bring the duo back, so when Ron Schneider (the actor who played the DreamFinder character in the parks) and the original Figment puppet stepped out on stage to sing One Little Spark along with Richard Sherman, the crowd pretty much went nuts.
Who knows what kind of surprises await us at this year’s Destination D, but with sessions spanning the entire 75-year history of Disney animated features, I’m sure there will be something great. Can’t wait to see what happens!
