DisneyanaMania - the Disneyana Fan Club’s 2011 Convention and Show and Sale – is coming back, bigger and better than ever , to the Crowne Plaza Resort Anaheim-Garden Grove in Garden Grove, California from July 12th through July 16th.
Last year, the members of the Disneyana Fan Club got together to enjoy and share in DisneyanaMania at our 2010 Convention and Show and Sale. Well, everybody had such a great time last year that we decided to bring the DisneyanaMania theme back for an encore in 2011! Now, that doesn’t mean we’ll be repeating ourselves at the 2011 Convention; we’ve got some fun events planned, and we’ve already lined up some great speakers to join us. So far, our scheduled guests and events include:
- A tribute to “it’s a small world” featuring Disneyana Fan Club Legend Alice Davis and Mary Blair’s niece Maggie Richardson
- A Celebration Banquet performance by Susan Egan (Belle in Broadway’s Beauty and the Beast and Meg in Hercules)
- Historian and webmaster Jim Hill
- Producer, director, and author Bob Garner
- Disney authors panel featuring Jim Korkis (The Vault of Walt), Don Peri (Working With Disney), and Tom Sito (Timing for Animation)
- Remembering the opening of Walt Disney World with stage show, parade, and television producer Ron Miziker
- Artists and parade designers Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily
- A critics’ discussion of Disney featuring animation historians Jerry Beck and Charles Solomon and art & pop culture critic Christopher Finch
- Animator and Disneyana Fan Club Legend Mark Henn
We’ll be announcing additional special guests and the people we’ll be honoring this year’s Disneyana Fan Club Legends soon. In addition to everything happening during the Convention itself, let’s not forget our semi-annual All Disneyana Show and Sale, which will be held this year on Saturday, July 16th, and our special events celebrating Disneyland’s birthday on Sunday, July 17th. You’re sure to have a great time sharing the magic of Disney with your fellow Disneyana Fan Club members, so start making plans to join us - don’t miss out on a wonderful week!
