Save the Dates for the 2023 Carolwood Society UnMeeting

As 2023 marks the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Walt Disney Company, the Carolwood Society will observe this milestone by revisiting the origins and accomplishments of Walt Disney’s legacy.

During this centennial year, Walt Disney’s alter ego, Mickey Mouse, will reach his 95th year.  With this in mind, we are proud to announce that the 2023 Carolwood Society UnMeeting will be held Thursday, October 5ththrough Sunday, October 8th at the Walt Disney World Resort, with our very special guest, the voice of Mickey Mouse himself, Bret Iwan!

Suggestions of Bret’s participation in a Carolwood Society were first raised by members during the 2018 UnMeeting.  As the COVID-19 pandemic prevented us from gathering in 2020, Bret joined us for a Carolwood Conversation in which he and Michael Broggie revealed interesting parallels between Bret’s life and Walt Disney’s life.  As you likely recall, Bret has been a lifelong fan of both Disney and railroads and his work in art, illustration, and design is accompanied by his voice acting career, which, of course, all began with an audition for the role of Mickey Mouse.

More details will be forthcoming as we move into this spring.  For now, though, please mark your calendars and get ready for another amazing weekend together this October at the Walt Disney World Resort!
