An Opportunity to Have Dinner with Dick Van Dyke and Support Walt Disney’s Birthplace

Legends Events is hosting an event featuring the world’s most infamous chimney sweep: Dick Van Dyke on the eve of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel. Patrons will be treated to a show by Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix who will be performing songs from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and, of course, Mary Poppins.

In addition, there will be a silent auction featuring artwork and movie posters. All proceeds from the auction will benefit The Walt Disney Birthplace! Tickets range from general admission, which include dinner and the show all the way up to the once-in-a-lifetime experience ticket that lets you sit right next to the man of the hour, access to a Q&A session and even an event gift. More information can be found here.

Maybe you’re more of a Little Mermaid fan? Legends Events is also hosting an event at Walt Disney World with Jodi Benson, voice of Ariel. The event on July 19, 2015 is actually in two parts. First will be lunch at Be Our Guest restaurant in the Magic Kingdom with Benson. Following that, the group will take a ride on Journey of The Little Mermaid. You can even purchase a ticket to ride with Jodi Benson herself!

The second half of the day will be spent in Celebration, Florida. Guests wishing to attend this portion of the event will include dinner, a Q&A as well as a small concert by Benson featuring songs like “Part of Your World”. There are several ticket options ranging from general admission to V.I.P. and you can get more information by clicking here.
