D23: The Official Disney Fan Club and The Walt Disney Archives invite D23 Gold Members to bring their family and friends to join us as we celebrate D23 Season of Magic Presented by Topps Digital and the opening of All That Glitters: The Crown Jewels of the Walt Disney Archives at the Bowers Museum, in Santa Ana, California!

Each of these special mixer opportunities will allow you access to see the all-new exhibit from The Walt Disney Archives as well a festive atmosphere complete with live music, photo opportunities, holiday refreshments, and other surprises! Plus, you’ll receive a commemorative credential and a special parting gift.

The all-new exhibition, All That Glitters: The Crown Jewels of The Walt Disney Archives, showcases the sparkling side of The Walt Disney Archives’ collection, including jewelry and accessories from TitanicThe Princess Diaries, and some of your favorite Walt Disney Studios, 20th Century Studios, and Marvel Studios films. The exhibition explores how jewelry is used to tell stories, with the displays divided into three sections:

  • “Jewelry Informs Character” explains what wearable accessories tell viewers about characters.
  • The “Feature Vault” offers a jaw-dropping look at the most prized jewelry and accessories inside The Walt Disney Archives.
  • “Reflections on Reality” includes a look into how film artists and designers draw inspiration for jewelry directly from the real world.
