D23 Expo

Posted on: September 9, 2009

This should be an interesting week for those of us that love all things Disney.  Sept 10-13, 2009 is the D23 expo in Anaheim.

Quick background:  D23 is “the official community for Disney fans”  It is a club that you can join, run by Disney.  There are member gifts, events, magazines, collectibles…….It’s the perfect club for die hard Disney fans with extra money to spend.   The rest of us can read about it…..

Why is the D23 expo a big deal?  This is from the D23 website:

  • “D23 Expo: It’s the ultimate Disney fan experience, taking place in Anaheim, California from September 10-13, 2009. This can’t-miss event will feature guest speakers, celebrity appearances, breathtaking exhibitions, sneak peeks, film screenings, one-of-a-kind merchandise, and so much more! Admission will be discounted for D23 members.”
  • Robert Iger, Disney President and CEO will be the kickoff Keynote Speaker at 10am pt on Sep 10.  There are a lot of rumours about this speech, and what we can expect to hear.  It has been said that Imperial Storm Troopers will be protecting the Anaheim Convention Center that day.   Hmmmm, any chance that we may be getting an announcement of a new Star Tours movie?  Well, rumour also says that George Lucas will be at D23 that day……

    Friday September 11th, Disney Travel Agents have been told to watch a live webcast about Disney Cruise Line – “A whole new Fairytale” is about to be announced.  We’re expecting to get the 2011 itineraries for the Disney Wonder, Disney Magic and the brand new Disney Dream!!!  Also hoping that we may get some more information on the new ship.  Have to wait and see on Friday

    Also expecting some suprises when Chairman of  The Walt Disney Studios, Dick Cook speaks.   There will be a planned preview of Toy Story 3 and double feature showing of Toy Story & Toy Story 2.   The biggie for many Disney geeks (said with love & affection) TRON: Legacy.

    I’m looking forward to all of it and as soon as the press/news releases come out; I’ll be writing about them here.
