Once-in-a-lifetime event will celebrate Disney’s mechanical magic, from the shores of the Jungle Cruise to monorail beams, Pirate ships, and beyond.

This September 18th 2010, Ape Pen Publishing and the 1313 Club will host an event celebrating the incredible mechanical story of Disneyland—beginning with simple motorized figures and leading to the development of Audio-Animatronics. Unique in the world of themed entertainment for its design and production of hundreds of mechanical devices for the revolutionary theme park, Disney’s creative efforts led from simple animated humans and animals to ride systems, vehicles, special effects, and some of today’s most striking lifelike animatronic characters.

The event will illustrate Disney’s incredible mechanical achievements by spotlighting attractions, characters, and memorable devices created by the Disney Studios and, later, the MAPO arm of WED Imagineering. Using rare images, video, and authentic props and animatronics, guests will gain insight into the fascinating MAPO division as never before.

Disney Legends Xavier Atencio, Rolly Crump, Kathryn Beaumont, Alice Davis, Bob Gurr, Bill Farmer, Floyd Norman, and Garner Holt (& more!) will shed light on this little known but highly intriguing aspect of Disney history—plus performances by Disneyland entertainers and the World premiere of the world’s most advanced animatronic figure.
This once-in-a-lifetime evening will honor Disneyland as one of the world’s great storytelling environments, with special emphasis on its technological wonders. Combining history, entertainment, and lots of surprises, it’s an event not to be missed by any Disneyland Fan.

Special guest appearance: The Doom Buggies, Joseph ~ of windows to the sky, Kirk Wall, The Can Can Girls and many others to be announced in the up coming months.
