Walt Disney’s Plane preparing to move to California for the D23 Expo
Disney’s D23 Expo is taking place in Anaheim next month. One of the big exhibits coming to the Expo is Walt Disney’s plane! The plane has been in storage just north of Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. Now, it’s getting ready to head to the Anaheim Convention Center for the Expo.
Walt’s plane will be available for guests to see in the Arena of the Anaheim Convention Center. The all-new exhibit will feature specially selected items that represent the history of the aircraft. Included will be a customized instrument panel originally located near Walt’s favorite onboard seat (enabling him to monitor flight conditions), a telephone handset (which gave Walt a direct line of communication to the pilot in the cockpit), and a flight bag adorned with an image of Mickey Mouse sitting on the tail of the famed plane.

Twitter user Bioreconstruct shared aerial photos of the plane being disassembled for the transfer to California.
“Aerial look at Walt Disney’s plane being shipped to Anaheim for D23. Tail removed, and it seems like there’s work also at the engines. Shipping crate and trailer at right likely part of the transfer. Plane has been in storage North of Animal Kingdom.”
