D23 also announced that Walt Disney’s derelict plane will be restored and available to guests at the event! It seems that Walt Disney’s personal plane, the Grumman G-159 Gulfstream 1, which Walt used to travel between Burbank and Orlando, also seems rather left unattended. Walt’s plane is currently in a service area north of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The aircraft had remained covered for preservation, and D23 is about to unveil it.
