D23 has now announced that Walt Disney’s abandoned plane, will be restored and available for Guest viewing at the event! It seems that Walt Disney’s personal airplane, the Grumman G-159 Gulfstream 1, which Walt used to travel between Burbank and Orlando, is looking rather unattended to as well. Walt’s airplane currently sits in a service area north of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The plane had remained covered for preservation, and D23 is getting ready to unveil it.

We can see that the plane is being washed up for the big event, which is incredibly exciting. This plane has been left alone for years, but holds such an important space in the history of Disneyland, Disney World, and Walt Disney himself. Bringing this historical piece back to life at an event for the fans will surely be an epic moment.

D23 is described as:
