No matter what you think about our former President, his museum is something that you have to check out. Perched atop a hill with sweeping views of the southland, the Reagan Library is one of California's most beautiful and unique destinations.
D23 PRESENTS TREASURES FROM THE WALT DISNEY ARCHIVES
July 6, 2012 – April 2013
D23, the Official Disney Fan Club, salutes the incredible creative legacy of Walt Disney and the company that bears his name with an impressive new exhibit at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum, Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, curated by the Walt Disney Archives. It features a treasure trove of more than 500 crown jewels - rarely or never before seen by the public - from Disney’s storied history, including original artifacts, props, costumes, models, and artwork, and celebrates the friendship shared by Walt Disney and Ronald Reagan — two quintessential American visionaries.

Walk onboard the actual Air Force One aircraft, tail number 27000, which flew seven U.S. presidents.

The Museum is designed for self guided activities. Please allow 2 ½ to 3 hours to view all the galleries and exhibits.

Complimentary wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that no pets are allowed on the grounds or in the Museum. However working animals (i.e. guide dog for the blind) that are identified as such are allowed.
