D23 Presents Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives at the Reagan Library

Last weekend, a group of friends and I went to a Disney exhibit at the Ronald Reagan Library.  It was a pretty cool exhibit.  We also walked through the display of Reagan's life.  Not that we really had a choice--we had to go through it to get to the Disney stuff.  However, I think I will save those pictures for another post.
