Why Attend Disney’s D23 Expo

What is Disney’s D23 Expo?

The D23 expo is the biggest Disney fan event in the World! The 3-day event is presented by the D23:The Official Disney Fan Club and is held bi-annual at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

Why attend Disney’s biggest fan event?

Because it’s the “ULTIMATE Disney fan event”! It’s centered around all things Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars. The D23 Expo includes more than 50 shows, presentations, and panels at 5 stages.

You’ll be among the first to hear what’s new coming to Disney parks, get exclusive sneak peaks, shop expo exclusive merchandise, meet & greets with celebrities, attend a Disney’s Legends ceremony panel and so much more!

Being a D23 Gold Member will get you early bird rates and the best priced tickets.

You can select from single day, 3-day and Child(ages 3-9) tickets.

If you wish to attend all three days, I highly suggest you purchase tickets closer to when the tickets go on sale.

A few weeks before the Expo you will receive your badges in the mail along with instructions on how to active them.

Single day badges- I was late to purchase my tickets so, I missed out purchasing the 3 day package AND a Saturday.

The Expo

Be prepared to wait in long lines! Disney fans get in an overnight que starting Thursday afternoon for all the major panels and stores. Each Day is full of different experiences, panels, costumes, celebrities and displays.

Most importantly about the expo, it’s such a fun experience! I had a blast and I can’t wait to attend the next one.
