On September 22, 2018, Kingdom Hearts
fan group The Keybearers Alliance
will host their 5th annual Gathering Event. The event will take place on Saturday, September 22, 2018
at the Holiday Inn Suites located at 1240 South Walnut Street, Anaheim, CA, 92802
, from 12pm-6pm
The Keybearers Alliance was a group that formed in November 2013 and started their first Gathering Event in October 2014. (At the time, the project was called Disneyland of Departure.) The idea for the Gathering Events was formed when a group based in Florida called Magic Kingdom Hearts went to the Magic Kingdom park at Walt Disney World Resort for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, and cosplayed with Kingdom Hearts
attire in order to promote the series in Disney World. The success of that event prompted the idea of forming the Keybearers Alliance in order to do the same in Disneyland!
The purpose of the event is of course to represent Kingdom Hearts
at Disney Parks, but also to to meet fellow fans of the series and build a stronger community!
This year, the Keybearers Alliance’s 5th Gathering will have a day's worth of activities including cosplay interaction, a Voice Actor’s panel with special guests (which have previously included Ray Chase, the voice of Master of Masters!), trivia, and a raffle - it has been hinted that this year’s main prize will be a good one!
Here are pictures of the Gathering Events throughout the past five years!
