This weekend we went to incredible event at the Roland Reagan Library in Simi Valley. It was put on by D23 a Disneyland club we belong to. It is great club that has amazing events exclusively for it’s members and tons of cool things too including a magazine that comes with fun goodies. We

 John’s birthday is next month and so I told him we could do one of the events for his birthday present. I gave John a choice of being first to see Cars land (another event held by D23) or be the first to see the exhibit “Treasures of the Disney Archives” at Ronald Reagan Library. He choose the exhibit and I am really glad he did.

We got to Roland Reagan library which is on top of mountain in Simi Valley with breath taking panoramic views. Walked into the event and waited to see the exhibit. I love Disney movies and growing-up watching both cartoons and live action. My two live action favorite older movies are “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” and “Mary Poppins”. One of the most amazing moment for me came when we were standing in front of Mary Poppins costume. I literal stood there for five minuets staring at it. I had a full circle moment standing there watching that movie over hundred time and seeing the custom in front of me and took my breath away.

If you love Disney movies new or old you have to see this exhibit. It will blow your socks off. It starts July 6 to April 2013 giving you plenty of time to come experiences the magic.
