Things are about to get paw-some! Join us for a paws-itively purr-fect experience at D23’s Opening Night: Disney Cats & Dogs at The Walt Disney Family Museum. Celebrate your favorite four-legged and furry Disney friends at this one-of-a-kind experience on Friday, June 23, 2023.

Disney Cats & Dogs is a traveling exhibition that originated from the Walt Disney Animation Research Library, Walt Disney Archives, and Disney Japan in honor of Disney’s milestone 100th anniversary, This is the first time that this captivating exhibition will be shown in the United States! And our D23 Members get to experience it first on opening night!

This exhibition is designed to have us give a round of ap-paws for our favorite Disney pets, as we learn more about their evolution and design. Some of the many characters featured in this exhibition include Pluto, Lady and Tramp, Pongo and Perdita, the Cheshire Cat, Duchess, and Lucifer! Guests will get to experience in-gallery animation, drawing, and craft activities.

In addition to getting to be among the first to explore this fur-tastic exhibition, there will also be fun extras, including a special presentation celebrating the exhibition and a reception with food and drink so members can mingle with fellow Disney pet lovers!
