Disney Trip Planning: Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives in Chicago
Josh and I took a bit of a road trip this 2013 holiday season from Colorado to Massachusetts (my hometown). On the way there, we decided to see what unconventional Disney-type trip things we could do. Lucky for us, the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois is currently hosting a D23 exhibit called D23 Presents Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives. This stop was right off the highway we were taking to MA anyway, so we decided to spend half a day there! It’s nice to get a little Disney fix even when you aren’t actually traveling to one of the Disney parks! The museum itself is amazing, and you could easily spend 2 days there visiting all of the different exhibits. But, this post isn’t about that – it’s just about the Disney exhibit!
