The Treasures of The Walt Disney Archives showcases more than 500 artifacts from almost 90 years of Disney history. More than half of the exhibit has not been seen by the public, including models, costumes, artwork, props, and set pieces. Curated by the Walt Disney Archives and sponsored by the Official Disney Fan Club, at 12,000 square feet this exhibit is the largest ever housed at the Reagan Presidential Library and curated by the Disney Archives.
See a line-for-line recreation of Walt's original spacious Disney Studios' office as it appeared in 1966, costumes worn by Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins (1964), the large leather-bound books used in the opening sequences of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Cinderella (1950), and Sleeping Beauty (1959), and the original Steamboat Willie (1928) script with Walt's notations. There will be props, set pieces, and costumes from more recent Disney movies as well, such as Pirates of the Caribbean,TRON: Legacy, National Treasure, and Captain America.
Other high points include the very first Disneyland ticket ever issued, early Disney merchandising, original animation cels, and numerous other unique Disney rarities.
This exhibit also highlights the friendship between Walt Disney and Ronald Reagan which began long before Reagan's political career.
