D23 shared an anecdote from the evening, as told by Walt and Lilly’s daughter, the late Diane Disney Miller:

“He just stood there and beamed,” Walt’s daughter, Diane remembered, as quoted in Bob Thomas’ Walt Disney: An American Original. “Then everybody applauded and said, ‘Lilly! Lilly! We want Lilly!’ So mother got up on stage, figuring, ‘If I get up there, I can get Walt down.’ Well, that wasn’t the case. So mother dragged Sharon and me up on stage.” The band started to play, and guests began to dance in the Saloon. “He was loving every minute of it, just grinning at people.”

Disney officially describes The Golden Horseshoe as:

Relive the golden era of Disneyland Park at this old-timey saloon that’s been here since the very beginning. Enjoy a spirited lunch or dinner over a roundup of frontier-style chow, including pepper jack chili mac, loaded potato skins and chicken wings. Tiny trailblazers can tuck into the chicken slider meal or Kid’s Power Pack, a bounty of healthy snacks.

End your meal on a sweet note with house-made ice cream desserts, like the triple chocolate-chunk cookie sundae topped with vanilla ice cream, cookie and cream crumbles, raspberry sauce and popping candy.

Ice cream float fans can sip on frosty Golden Horseshoe fabulosity, made with a choice of cola or root beer—yeehaw!
