About Dayton Disneyana

Hosted by the Dayton Disneyana Foundation, Inc, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and sharing the rich legacy of Walt Disney. Our common goal is to provide Disneyana enthusiasts of all ages from around the world with news, information, and events that enhance their experience with, and love of, all things Disney. All profit from the Dayton Disneyana Event is donated to a local charity which varies each year. Your contributions and donations may be tax-deductible.

Dayton Disneyana, is a weekend of panels, meeting our special guests who help create the Disney magic, shopping at the Disneyana Collectibles Expo and Disney pin and vinylmation trading. Do people really spend a weekend celebrating Disney in exciting Dayton, Ohio? Yes, they do and many come long distances. In fact, some people go home and blog about their experience at Dayton Disneyana.
