Disney Parks and American Stories

Last year we asked for your help and received an incredible response. Thousands of you generously shared photos and stories of your visits to Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Thank you so much for your memories! We read every story and looked at every photograph—and each one helped us to better understand America's relationship with the Disney Parks. Some of your photos and stories will be featured in the upcoming exhibition Mirror, Mirror: Reflections of America in Disney Parks, and some will be featured in an upcoming website. Check back soon for more information!

Have you ever been to Disneyland or Walt Disney World? Did you pose for a picture in front of Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella Castle? Maybe take a selfie eating an iconic Mickey Premium Bar or getting an autograph from a famous character? If so, we want you to share your photos with us!

Our team at the National Museum of American History is working on a future project, and we’re looking for images that capture your experiences as guests at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. If you submit a photo and/or story, they might appear in the museum!
