Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the Disney Legends Award was first given to actor Fred MacMurray in 1987, and has since honored 276 Disney Legends (including this year’s honorees).

The Disney Legends Award ceremony, which is always one of the highlights of D23, will take place at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 14, in Hall D23 during the D23 Expo. (If you plan to attend D23, line up early for this event! It books out every year.)
