  • Exclusive: Disney Twenty-Three to celebrate Imagineering's 60th Anniversary

    We have a bit of a scoop for you today. Last year, Imagineering turned 60 years old. Hard to believe, but true. To mark the occasion (though a bit late), the latest edition of Disney Twenty-Three magazine has created a special back-cover for the issue which salutes the Imagineers. You'll see that the design is a brilliant layered paper cut style. Take a closer look and you'll see lots of the more famous Imagineering creations.





    We understand that the summer 2013 issue of Disney twenty-three will have several in-depth articles to honor the 60th anniversary. Imagineer Tony Baxter discusses his work on some of the world’s most iconic attractions, including Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain,and Star Tours. “You Do What?” profiles some of the most unusual jobs Imagineers have had over the years, from rock designer to castle architect. “Imagineering Fact? Or Fiction!” debunks some of the long-time myths and legends of the Disney Parks. And there’s much more, including “23 Imagineering Game Changers” and a salute from Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Tom Staggs to the thousands of creative individuals whose contributions have changed the way guests experience Disney around the world.

    I really like this artwork. If this were an Avanzino shadowbox, I'd snap one up and put it on my wall (hint hint - make this art available for purchase!).

    There you have it folks. Happy anniversary to the Imagineers and we'll be looking forward to the "Special Issue" of Disney Twenty-Three when it comes out.

    Disney just released the remainder of the info on the upcoming issue of Disney Twenty-Three magazine. Here's the release:

    BURBANK, Calif. – April 29, 2013 – The summer issue of Disney twenty-three, the flagship magazine of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, features a mega summer movie preview of Disney’s upcoming theatrical releases. D23 gets readers back in the saddle with filmmakers Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski for Johnny Depp’s upcoming The Lone Ranger; Billy Crystal talks about scaring up big laughs for Monsters University; the masterminds behind Marvel’s newest film, Iron Man 3, offer an inside look at how they're bringing Iron Man back to basics; and John Lasseter shows us how the upcoming animated film Disney’s Planes will soar.

    Disney twenty-three also celebrates 60 years of Walt Disney Imagineering with a special commemorative back cover. Imagineer Tony Baxter discusses his work on some of the world’s most iconic attractions, including Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and Star Tours. “You Do What?” profiles some of the most unusual jobs Imagineers have had over the years, from rock designer to castle architect. “Imagineering Fact? Or Fiction!” debunks some of the long-time myths and legends of the Disney Parks. And there’s much more, including “23 Imagineering Game Changers” and a salute from Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Tom Staggs to the thousands of creative individuals whose contributions have changed the way guests experience Disney around the world.

    Beginning with the summer issue, Disney twenty-three, hailed by critics for its superlative fan content and collectability, will be offered exclusively to D23 Gold Members who will continue to receive the magazine as a benefit of their membership. Disney twenty-three is delivered directly to fans’ doorsteps, and this issue contains a special member gift—a metallic D23 keychain, signifying how members hold the key to unlocking the magic of Disney through D23.

    Disney twenty-three’s favorite sections are back with new images and content, too. In this issue:

    An image of Walt and Lillian celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary just prior to the opening of Disneyland in “PHOTOfiles”
    “A Walk with Walt” takes readers back to 1946, the year following the end of World War II—a transitional one for Walt and his company
    In “D Society,” Ne-Yo, Rod Stewart, and Tina Fey are among the stars shown visiting the parks



    The Disney discoveries don’t stop with the end of the summer publication. In conjunction with the summer issue of Disney twenty-three, Disney D23 will feature original and exclusive stories that complement the contents of D23’s glossy magazine. Beginning May 14, only on D23.com you’ll find an exclusive video interview with Imagineer Tony Baxter.

      I like the back-cover. On the front they put The Lone Ranger.

      I was hoping for an article about Lucasfilm, maybe in the next one.

          Not so. You can find the D23 magazine at Barnes & Noble and at various shops in DL and WDW. At DL it is available in the Disney Gallery and at the World of Disney.
          The cost of an individual issue is $15.95 and non member issues usually do not have wraparound covers and for sure no premiums (e.g. patches or stickers).
          I think you can also buy individual issues from disneystore.com too.

            Doesn't the following statement in BOLD mean that you no longer will be able to buy the magazine without being a GOLD member?
