Oh my ears and whiskers, we mustn’t be late for a very important date Insiders! It’s officially official that the extremely popular and highly-anticipated D23 Expo is happening at the Anaheim Convention Center September 9, 10, and 11 September of 2022! This event was cancelled last year due to the pandemic, and this years expo will be taking place in Florida at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World.
If you are not familiar with the D23 Expo, here is a rundown at what happens at this three-day event:
D23 Expo, the largest Disney fan event in the world, celebrates all the wonderful worlds of The Walt Disney Company under one roof, including the best of Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel across film, television, streaming, theme parks, products, online, music, live entertainment, and more. D23 Expo 2022 marks the seventh Expo held in Anaheim.
Tickets will go on sale for the event on January 20, 2022 and you will not want to miss out on buying tickets so that you can be one of the first to see the latest from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel including a first look at the incredible plans for the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company! You don’t even need to be a D23 member in order to attend the event, although if you are a member you do a discount on tickets!
I went to the first D23 expo back in 2009, and while that was over ten years ago I remember it being one of the best experiences and have been dying to go back to another Expo ever since! Although no specific details have been released for this event yet, here are some the highlights you can look forward to per the D23 website:
