Activities at Walt Disney Family Museum, The Presidio, San Francisco

A question has been asked about special celebrations of the Walt Disney Family Museum first year anniversary  in San Francisco.  Yes, there has been special celebrations – much of which happened during the first week in October.  There is even a video contest (until Nov 15) which you may enter.

A tip is to watch the screenings, lectures, and discussions under “public programs & education” at the Walt Disney Museum website for more programs coming. I have copied examples (below) of events to see November through December.  
These examples may be found at their website

Be sure to follow Walt Disney Museum blog for great information too!  Of course, you may follow along at Twitter. 

Enjoy your great experience!  ~ The Fun Tour Guru
