2017 Dreaming Tree Gala
We are proud to present the inaugural 2017 Dreaming Tree Gala, supporting the Walt Disney Hometown Museum. This black tie event will be taking place inside The Ballroom of the Americas, at Disney’s Contemporary Resort on Saturday November 18th, 2017.
From a very young age Alex Maher knew what he wanted to do with his life, work for the mouse. The question was, how to make that dream a reality.
During Alex’s hour long speaker series event he’ll trace his inspirational journey from artistic ‘outsider’ to his current goal as Sr Character Artist at the Disney Company. Alex will talk about the passion and drive it takes to succeed, and the joy of finally obtaining your pixie dust filled dreams in the land of Mickey Mouse.
Visit The Museum
Come and visit the Walt Disney Hometown Museum… we are revealing an entire new floor of space filled with fun and exciting new exhibits and displays.
Walt Disney first came to Marceline, Missouri by train when he was five years old. When Walt returned in 1946, the Santa Fe train depot evoked cherished memories of when he first pulled into the Marceline. As a fitting tribute, the museum that honors him is located inside the very same train depot.
Unique Disney History and Artifacts
The Walt Disney Hometown Museum contains a unique collection of Disney family effects, not able to be viewed anywhere else in the world. Visitors to the museum are treated to interpretive exhibits focusing on the Disney family, Walt’s life in Marceline as well as friends and family who supported him in his creative adventures while growing up.
Also exhibited at the museum are hundreds of personal letters written between Disney family members, the only park attraction to leave and be operated outside of a Disney park and other artifacts, effects and personal belongings from Disney family members.
The Walt Disney Hometown Museum is a private venture. Our mission:
Ensuring that the world never forgets that Walt Disney was a simple farm boy from Marceline who grew up to become the keeper of childhood magic.
