This was my very first time to attend the D23 Expo and it’s impossible to describe in one post. So I’ve been writing about the different panels or my favorite parts from each panel over the past week and I feel like I have enough material that I could write about it for two more weeks. The D23 Expo is like the most amazing convention fans of Disney will ever experience.
If you ever plan on going to the D23 Expo you have to be prepared for one thing. LINES! Everything you might want to do there will be a line. But yes it’s completely worth it, you will enjoy, no I take that back, you will LOVE every single part of D23 Expo. The D23 Expo is a fantastic journey through all things Disney.
Our Expo adventure began with the Disney Legend Awards Ceremony. 11 new Disney Legends were named and honored. So far I have only had time to highlight, Disney Legend Stan Lee & Jack Kirby, Disney Legend Oprah Winfrey, Disney Legend Mark Hamil I hope to also write about Disney legends Whoopi Goldberg, Carrie Fisher even though there are still five more people that were named.
We had a little time on the D23 Expo hall floor where all kinds of exhibits surrounding us. There was so much to see and do it took a little time every day to get it all done. My highlights were the Pirates of the Caribbean Exhibit where you could see all the inspiration for Disney Pirates over the years and all the costumes from the movies including Disney’s Descendants and Once Upon a Time. Also really interesting to me was the Pixar Exhibit and the Marvel Exhibit. There were also many different toys, and other products that I’ve never seen before but to D23 members this was exclusive stuff that fans live for. Oh and I can’t forget to mention that Star Wars The Galaxy Edge was a huge exhibit that wasn’t to be missed.
I’ve also already shared with you stuff from other panels that we sat though. We learned what live action films are coming out, what’s new with Marvel and Star Wars. We saw what’s new with Pixar and Disney animation. We learned what’s new at all of the Disney parks around the world. And we finished the D23 Expo with a concert by Alan Menken. Alan Menken was the perfect ending to a crazy three days. If you are any kind of Disney Fan you would love the D23 Expo lines and all.
