In 1955, Disney released an animated, musical, comedy that would go on to be loved by fans worldwide for years to come. “Lady and the Tramp.” Disney plans to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the film at 2015’s D23 celebration with their first ever, “Fanniversary Home Edition” of the classic.
Here is what the official Disney Fan Club had to say about it.
D23: The Official Disney Fan Club is bringing its popular Fanniversary event into the homes of members and Disney fans around the world, with Fanniversary Home Edition. This year’s inaugural home event celebrates the 60th anniversary of Disney’s classic canine love story Lady and the Tramp. Fans can join the fun by visiting D23.com/D23Fanniversary.
Starting May 29, guests can begin preparing for the party by downloading invitations, decorations, crafts, games, and even a traditional spaghetti and meatballs recipe provided by the talented chefs of “The Chew.”
Then from June 12–14 it’s time to party! Throughout the weekend, D23 will unveil new and classic content onD23.com about the animated favorite, including:
- A new video featuring original artwork from the Animation Research Library

Plus, fans are encouraged to join the conversation on D23’s social media using the hashtag #D23Fanniversary (follow “DisneyD23” on all platforms via the links below). One of the many downloadables will be a “selfie station” where fans can pose as the film’s canine couple enjoying a plate of pasta at Tony’s Restaurant, and then upload their shots on social media. Throughout the weekend, D23 also invites fans to post “Dogglegangers”—photos of their own pooches who look like the dynamic dogs from the film—and share stories of dogs they have adopted.
Fans are encouraged to watch the beloved film all weekend long. And for those who would like to watch as one big group, at 5 p.m. PDT on Saturday, June 13, D23 encourages fans around the world to hit “play” on their DVD, Blu-ray, or digital device to kick off the largest Lady and the Tramp viewing party ever.
