Today, a lot of D23 members received their Summer 2009 edition of the Disney Twenty-Three magazine. The magazine, just like the first one, looks simply amazing this time featuring Donald Duck as he celebrates his 75th anniversary of Mischief, Mayhem, & Mirth! This edition of the D23 magazine includes a tour of the new Tokyo Disneyland attraction, Monster’s Inc Ride & Go Seek!, beautiful art from Disneyland’s Disney Gallery, a Q&A with the director for the all new movie Rapunzel, a documentary with the famous Sherman Brothers, an in-depth look at the future of Disney’s California Adventure Park, 75 of Donald Duck, and lots more!

Also, as a suprise for D23 members, from the Walt Disney Archives they have included a beautiful fan. The description reads as follow: “This reproduction of a 1955 ‘Acres of Fun’ Disneyland souvenir fan was made exclusively for D23 members by the Walt Disney Archives Collection. Capturing a simpler time, these paper fans featured original artwork depicting attractions from Park’s inaugural year.”

“Beat the Heat this Summer!”

The fan features some opening day attractions from Disneyland
