    The concert will be performed the evening of Friday, September 24, in the Grand Ballroom of the Disneyland Hotel.

    Destination D: Disneyland '55 will take D23 Members on a mesmerizing journey through the design, creation, debut and magical history of the world's first Disney theme park. The event will offer two full days of special presentations, panels, screenings and guest speakers that give fans an inside view of this fascinating era in Disney history and let them hear from with key figures from Disneyland's past.

      It really does look interesting. This one in particular caught my eye:
      Weird Disney
      From the startling visuals of the 1930’s Fanchon & Marco “Mickey Mouse Idea” vaudeville shows to Disneyland’s “Kap the Kaiser Aluminum Pig” and the “Crane Bathroom of Tomorrow,” Disney’s history has included some pretty offbeat stuff.

              There are 1,300 tickets available. So the good news is that everyone who gets a ticket will be able to see everything and there will be room for everyone to see and enjoy the entire program both days.

              The bad news, of course, is that this event will sell out very quickly.

                Is this going to be similar to past events where the actual member can buy a ticket for themselves as well as a guest? EDIT: Just saw that you can bring one guest.

                This sounds awesome!

                    Aw wish I could go, but I totally can't afford it AND take off work on Friday. I was hoping that they would sell the days separately so I could just go on Saturday.

                    Though I wonder why this event is so much? It's more than the full 4 days at the Expo.

                      I'm guessing the expense on this is because there are fewer people to pay for the weekend. Sounds wonderful and I'm hoping I'll be able to swing it.:thumbup:

                        I agree. The cost does seem disproportionate to the quantity of presentations and panels to that of the Expo.

                          I wonder if they'll have displays up. For as much as the presentations sound cool, I think 2 full days of hearing people talk is just a lot of sitting and listening. I think it'd be great if they had things for people to do who may want to skip out on a panel. Maybe like hang an archives display up like they did at the expo or a room filled with upcoming Disney park models like at the expo. Or is this already happening and I read over it in the description? In any case, what do you think?

                            To be honest, I'm not sure if it will sell out quickly or not. While I know that my adrenaline will be pumping Monday morning as I'm attempting to get all my info entered as quickly as possible, just like every other event, the Disneyland events have rarely sold out in the first week or so.
                            While I really want this event, which I think sounds great, to sell out in a matter of minutes, We will just have to see.

                              The Expo was open to the public, and your ability to see various events was dependent on your willingness to wait long periods of time in lines.

                              This a event is for D23 members only (and guest) and there is suppose to be enough seating for each session so that you can see everything if you want.

                              When you figure that many of the other events have been $50 for a few hours, $125 for two full days doesn't sound unreasonable to me.
