The DISNERD in me is flying high with my Mickey Ears today!! I’m officially announcing I will be attending THE Biggest Disney event around: D23 EXPO!
What is D23Expo?
I know the first question for most of you is what exactly is D23 EXPO? In short:
All the magic and excitement of the past, present, and future of Disney entertainment will come together once again under one roof on August 14-16 when D23: The Official Disney Fan Club presents D23 EXPO 2015 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Since 2009, the bi-annual D23 EXPO has celebrated all the magic, wonder, and adventure of Disney at this remarkable gathering created especially for you, our most passionate and loyal fans. D23 EXPO presents three full days of “inside-the-magic” experiences you won’t find anywhere else, including exclusive sneak peeks at upcoming films from The Walt Disney Studios, dazzling celebrity appearances, unforgettable presentations given by Disney luminaries, a look at what’s coming from Disney Parks and Resorts and Walt Disney Imagineering, the Disney Legends ceremony, and the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibition, which spotlights crown jewels from Disney’s timeless legacy.
No matter what part of Disney stirs memories or warms your heart, you will discover something magical at D23 EXPO 2015—the ultimate Disney fan event.
Like my typical Disney Events I will be sharing my experience LIVE via social media! (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Periscope, and more!) I will also be posting about the event in the weeks following, here on the blog. I’ll be headed out to Anaheim, Ca on Thursday along with 24 other amazing bloggers and we will be using the #D23Expo as the MAIN hashtag. Other hashtags include: #playmation #TheMuppets #DisneySide #DMEd23Expo #ShareYourLegacy So make sure you check in frequently! I’ll even be hosting a LIVE giveaway for something EXCLUSIVE while at the event!
