Why Walt Disney’s plane you ask? Here’s what Amazon had this to say about the inspiration for their D23 collection:
“As the platinum sponsor of Disney’s D23 Expo, Amazon had the unique opportunity to collaborate with the Walt Disney Archives to bring Walt Disney’s iconic Grumman Gulfstream company airplane, Mickey Mouse One, from the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida to Anaheim. The plane will be displayed for guests at the D23 Expo as part of the exhibit Mickey Mouse One: Walt’s Plane, presented by Amazon.
From the plane’s purchase in 1963 until its final flight in 1992, the plane was used to shuttle key Disney personnel and Imagineers. Given its historical importance and presence at this year’s D23 Expo, the plane served as the central inspiration for Amazon’s custom merchandise. Walt himself used the plane for work and family getaways, visiting some of his favorite destinations. Those destinations also inspired the products in our exclusive collection.”
