Disney Legends is a award ceremony program that honors people who made great contributions to The Walt Disney Company. It takes place in Burbank, California outside of Team Disney - The Michael D. Eisner Building. It was founded in 1987 by Andrea Favilli, who created the Disney Legends award, consisting of an arm of Mickey Mouse holding up a star-tipped wand. The ceremony also takes place at the biennial D23 Expo.
