Sunday In The Bowers With Disney
A Guided Tour of All that Glitters: The Crown Jewels of the Walt Disney Archives at the Bowers Museum
Yesterday at the Bowers Museum, we fell under the magical spell of the Crown Jewels from the Walt Disney Archives. First greeted by an enormous 50th anniversary crown that sat aloft Sleeping Beauty’s Disneyland castle, our Gem X group gained behind-the-scenes insights on pivotal pieces like Cinderella’s (crystal) slippers and the Heart of the Ocean from the Titanic. We also got a closer look at costume accessories that helped define fiction and historical characters, from Aladdin to Queen, across 34 films. What a Disney dream come true!
