D23 Members are invited to a free event on on December 6 to memorialize the late Diane Disney Miller at the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round. The event is open to members only who RSVP ahead of time.
A memorial bench will be commemorated at the very merry-go-round where she spent many happy afternoons with her father and sister. The same location that Walt Disney famously said was one of the places where he came up with the idea for Disneyland.
Following the dedication, members are invited to enjoy free merry-go-round rides, carol singers, and refreshments. Limited-edition, numbered pins that replicate the Gold Ring Pass once awarded at the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round will be available for purchase for $30.00 each. There will also be an extremely limited number of original Gold Ring Pass tickets for sale.
Full announcement below.

In the 1940s, on Sunday afternoons, a young father brought his daughters Diane and Sharon to ride the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round. He had favorite benches where he sat eating peanuts and dreaming of the fabulous theme park he wanted to build. That man was Walt Disney and his dream was Disneyland.
On December 6, we will proudly honor the late Diane Disney Miller with a memorial bench at the very merry-go-round where she spent many happy afternoons with her father and sister.
That original bench will also be on display.
