Disneyana Convention

Disneyana Convention After witnessing the growth and popularity of Disneyana gatherings hosted by the Mouse Club and the NFFC, The Walt Disney Company through its Walt Disney Attractions Merchandise division decided to host its own. The first Disneyana Convention was held in the Contemporary Resort Convention Center at Walt Disney World from September 24 to 27, 1992, and featured sales of Disney memorabilia, convention logo merchandise, and special limited-edition collectibles, along with speakers, an auction, tours, meals, and gala entertainment events. The 750 conventioneers were thrilled by an event of the magnitude and scope that only Disney itself could produce. A second Disneyana Convention, doubled in size, followed in 1993 at Disneyland, with a return to Walt Disney World for the third Convention in 1994. 1995 saw two Disneyana Conventions, one at each park. The 1996 through 2000 conventions were held at Walt Disney World, the 2001 one at the Disneyland Resort, and the final convention, in 2002, at Epcot.
