D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, is commemorating dozens of Disney milestones by celebrating landmark anniversaries in 2013. D23’s Disney Fanniversary Celebration will hit the road visiting select cities from March 1 to April 7, 2013.

D23 will lead guests on a journey through dozens of Disney moments through the years, including classic movies like “Peter Pan”, “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, and the first “Pirates of the Caribbean” film; classic characters like Mickey Mouse and Chip ‘n’ Dale; favorite attractions and entertainment at Disney parks such as Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, Horizons, and Mickey’s Toontown; the openings of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland, the launch of The Disney Channel; the first voyage of Disney Cruise Line; and the founding of The Walt Disney Company in 1923.
