The D23 Expo, the large convention for all things Disney, is returning to the Anaheim Convention center next fall.
This past August was the second D23 Expo, and drew more than 40,000 Disney fans to Anaheim. Those in attendance were entertained by stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Billy Crystal and Dick Van Dyke! Fans were able to get inside looks at attractions under development at Disney parks, such as Buena Vista Street and Cars Land.
“Anaheim is extremely pleased that the D23 Expo will be returning next year,” said Charles Ahlers, president, Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau. “This exciting event is quickly becoming an industry icon, drawing Disney fans from around the world. The Anaheim community truly appreciates and enjoys this quality show and positive impacts it brings.”
For 2013, the D23 Expo is promising to “expand capacities at some of our most popular venues”, as the 2011 Expo saw large numbers in attendance. There will be a 2013 Disney Legends Ceremony, Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, Collectors Forums as well as the show floor exhibits. Traditionally, the D23 Expo also features a Disney parks presentation, a Disney Studios presentation and more.
Advanced ticket sales for the 2013 D23 Expo will go on sale beginning one year from the Expo on August 9, 2012, and will be available at D23Expo.com
