D23 Spring Issue Celebrates Walt and The 1964-64 NY World's Fair

Disney Parks released a preview of the new upcoming Spring issue of the D23 Magazine which will include an article by Disney historian Paul Anderson - publisher of the legendary Persistence of Vision magazine - about Disney and the 1964 New York World's Fair. Click on each pic to see them in big size.

Here is the D23 release: The 1964–65 World’s Fair in New York celebrated a time of optimism, growth, and progress. The Fair, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, marked the creation of landmark Disney technology, music, and attractions including it’s a small world, Audio-Animatronics® technology, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, and theCarousel of Progress—with its memorable theme song “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow.” Disney twenty-three sat down with several Disney Legends responsible for these iconic landmarks including Marty Sklar, Alice Davis, and Bob Gurr. Stunning concept art and rarely seen photography from the Fair complement the stories in this issue, available exclusively to Gold Members of D23.
Disney twenty-three’s spring issue also includes a look ahead at some of the latest entertainment coming from Disney. Ty Burrell, Tina Fey, Kermit the Frog, and Miss Piggy give readers a peek “behind the felt” at Muppets Most Wanted, which opens this March. Chris Evans talks about suiting up once again for April’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Plus, Jonathan Freeman discusses taking his characterization of the villainous Jafar from screen to stage, as Disney Theatrical Productions prepares to open Aladdin on Broadway this March.
Also included in the spring issue of Disney twenty-three:
  • We celebrate D23’s fifth anniversary with a look at some of the club’s most memorable events
