The D23 Expo was truly the ultimate Disney fan experience, bringing together tens of thousands of fans from all over the world with celebrities, executives, and even a few robots.
It has been five days since the Expo concluded and while we still have a few more bits of video to upload, we thought a summary of all we’ve reported from the mega-event would be useful for those looking to relive it or see what they missed.
We have posted a D23 Expo photo gallery featuring nearly 200 high-quality photos we took while at the D23 Expo, including presentations and walking the show floor.
Below are all of the videos we have posted so far, including the most talked about moment when actor Johnny Depp emerged dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow in front of thousands of screaming fans as well as the full Fantasyland expansion and Star Tours refurbishment announcements.
