Making logistics seem like magic is the norm for UPS, but we don’t always get to move actual magic. Millions of customers every day place not only their shipments in the hands of UPS people, but also their trust. So it came as no surprise when The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation asked UPS to help them relocate hundreds of one-of-a-kind Walt Disney Archive artifacts to The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.
The artifacts are the centerpiece of a show called “Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives,” which is being presented by D23: The Official Disney Fan Club. The exhibit includes more than 500 pieces (models, props, costumes, set pieces, artwork, etc.) collected over nearly nine decades of Disney history – from the original script for Mickey Mouse’s debut film “Steamboat Willie” to props used in the recently released “Marvel’s The Avengers” movie. The exhibit also pays tribute to the long personal friendship and professional collaboration between Walt Disney and Ronald Reagan.
The exhibit opened at The Reagan Library on July 6, 2012 and runs through April 30, 2013.
UPS Freight Drivers Sal Cardenas and Carlos Mancillas, from the LAX facility in Pico Rivera, CA, moved the priceless artifacts from Burbank, CA to Simi Valley, CA along a 30 mile stretch of highway that winds its way through the San Fernando Valley.
