Front Description

From the Walt Disney Disneyana Convention held at WDW in September 1992. It shows a large red number "1" with a small yellow "st" to its upper right. The round Disneyana Logo is on the lower right of the "1" with 1992 and Mickey's head and reads "OFFICIAL DISNEYANA CONVENTION DISNEYLAND 1992". Major Disney fans may remember this date! September 24th, 1992 was the day that Disney World hosted its first ever Disneyana Convention in 1992, which took place at Disney's Contemporary Resort Convention Center at Walt Disney World September 24-27, 1992. At the convention, attendees could purchase Disney memorabilia and merchandise and, as well as attend various entertainment events. This first convention welcomed 750 guests attended, a number that doubled for the second Disneyana Convention held a year later at Disneyland. Prior to 1992, Disneyana Conventions were held by the NFFC (National Fantasy Fan Club) and the Mouse Club, but this changed that fall when the Walt Disney Company hosted its own fan-focused event. The first Disneyana Convention took place at the convention center at Disney’s Contemporary Resort just steps from the Magic Kingdom. At the event, Disney fans could stop by the resort’s convention center to purchase Disney memorabilia, including limited-edition pieces and collectibles. The event also featured a speaker series on Disney history, auctions for some of the rarest items, and exclusive tours and entertainment along with meals for attendees. In total, the first Disneyana Convention included 750 conventioneers and plenty of ways for Disney fans to come together in a unique setting, all in celebration of their fandom. Several displays from various areas of the company were also showcased at the first Disneyana Convention, including pieces from Disney Vacation Club, Disney Publishing, the Disney Store, and Disney Channel, to name a few. The Disneyana Convention returned in 1993 at Disneyland Resort. The second year featured speakers like Marty Sklar, then President of Walt Disney Imagineering, and Dave Smith, then Director of the Walt Disney Archives.
