‘Mary Poppins,’ ‘Once Upon A Time’ and ‘Oz’ to Highlight D23 Expo’s ‘Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives’
D23: The Official Disney Fan Club and the Walt Disney Archives are proud to announce the return of the ‘Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives’ exhibit to the D23 Expo. During the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center, August 9 – 11, 2013, this all-new exhibit curated specifically for the D23 Expo 2013 will feature: the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins, ABC’s hit television series ‘Once Upon A Time,’ and a look at the longstanding connection between Disney and L. Frank Baum’s beloved series of books about the land of Oz.
‘Treasures’ will showcase a selection of crown jewels from the Walt Disney Archives Collection, many of which will be displayed publicly for the first time by the Archives. As the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins approaches, the Archives will be presenting a wide array of pieces from the Academy Award®-winning 1964 film including concept art and matte paintings, Mary and Bert’s carousel horses, the snow globe from the ‘Feed the Birds’ sequence, costumes worn by many of the central characters and the recently acquired carpet bag, which Mary carries with her when she arrives at the Banks’ household. Also part of the exhibit will be the FanArtGallery, themed to Mary Poppins. D23 Members were invited to submit their work as part of the D23 Expo Fan Art Contest, and the winners’ colorful creations will be displayed in this year’s gallery.
On the heels of the global success of Oz The Great and Powerful, the Archives is proud to assemble artifacts illustrating Disney’s long association with L. Frank Baum’s Oz books. Highlights include a costume from 1957’s ‘Rainbow Road to Oz’ — a segment from The Fourth Anniversary Show, which celebrated Walt’s four years on television, starring many of the Mickey Mouse Club’s Mouseketeers — as well as concept art from unrealized attractions and Disney Studio productions. Also featured are props and costume pieces from 1985’s Return to Oz including the Tik-Tok puppet, ‘Powder of Life’ tin, and Dorothy’s costume and slippers. And, of course, there will be an assortment of costumes from this year’s Oz The Great and Powerful.
Now finishing its second hit season, ‘Once Upon A Time’ has become a huge hit among Disney fans for its ability to remain true to many of Disney’s classic stories while expanding their worlds with a modern twist. The Archives is honored to be presenting a selection of elegantly designed costumes from the show.
The D23 Expo 2013 will also feature the Disney Legends Awards — a tradition that pays tribute to the talented men and women who have made indelible contributions to the Disney legacy; the return of the D23 Expo Dream Store, featuring a wide selection of unique merchandise; an expanded Collectors Forum, where Disney fans can buy, sell and trade Disney collectibles, memorabilia and merchandise — and this year’s Forum will also include the worlds of Marvel and Star Wars — plus amazing live events, special celebrity appearances, panels and presentations and unique experiences from every corner of Disney, from upcoming feature film and television sneak peeks to what’s new and what’s next from our theme parks around the world.

In honor of the second season’s premiere of ‘Once Upon A Time,’ which returns on Sunday, September 30, 2012, ABC and Bloomingdale’s teamed up to bring the experience to stores nationwide and to the famed window displays at its 59th Street flagship store in New York City To commemorate the windows’ unveiling, Jennifer Morrison — best known to her legions of fans as Emma Swan, Storybrooke’s reluctant heroine — was on hand to meet and greet with fans.
While fans eagerly awaited the opportunity to meet Morrison, they were treated to ‘Once Upon A Time’-inspired (read:primarily apple-based) hors d’oeuvre and drinks, along with other treats such as the cookie pictured below.
The windows themselves are filled mannequins posed as some of the show’s more popular characters from the first season, in vignettes inspired by iconic imagery from the series. Though the mannequins themselves look disturbingly nothing like the characters they represent, they are each dressed in clothes ‘from and evocative of’ the show. Labels on the windows identify each of the mannequins and which of the popular fashion designers featured at Bloomingdale’s dressed them.
Below is our gallery of images from the event featuring Jennifer Morrison as well as the windows and other photos of the ‘Once Upon A Time’ experience at the New York store. Click on any of the thumbnails to see a larger version of the photo:

With the curse broken, the residents of Storybrooke remember their lives in the Enchanted Forest and fantasy and reality begin to merge. However, they are not transported home. Mr. Gold has introduced magic back into Storybrooke to gain the upper hand against Regina. In the Enchanted Forest, Prince Phillip awakens Aurora (Sarah Bolger) and discovers that his companion Mulan (Jamie Chung) must face a deadly foe.
