The class of Disney Legends includes Robert Downey Jr., Bette Midler, Diane Sawyer, Robin Roberts, Wing Chao, Jon Favreau, James Earl Jones, Kenny Ortega, Barnette Ricci, Ming-Na Wen, and Hans Zimmer.

The Disney Legends Awards acknowledges those who have made an extraordinary impact on The Walt Disney Company. This award was established in 1987 and has been celebrated publicly at the D23 Expo since 2009.

Disney Legends are given the Disney Golden Pass, which is a lifetime pass to the Disney Parks. Disney Legends are also honored with a bronze plaque with their signature and handprints that is then displayed at the Legends Plaza at the Walt Disney Studios.
