D23 is THE official fan club for The Walt Disney Company, and is best known for its D23 Expo. The D23 Expo is every OTHER year and hosts the most attended and largest Disney expo on the globe. Your D23 Expo ticket gets you full access to all things magic and Disney, including panels, presentations, exclusive shopping and D23 merchandise, performances, cosplay. The expo is also the home of where Disney announces the newest Disney Legends, which means…huge celebrity sightings. (Last expo was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Hilary Duff, and basically all of Broadway)
This year marks the seventh D23 expo, and it’s more anticipated than ever, since the last one was canceled. We’ve seen what Disney can do over one night with Christmas decorations in Magic Kingdom, we can only imagine what’s in store for us with an extra two years to plan this epic blend of the best of Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel.
The D23 Expo is held in the Anaheim Convention Center in California, which is located right across the street from the Disneyland Resort.
