On Thursday, Aug. 23, tickets will go on sale for the next D23 Expo, coming to the Anaheim Convention Center Aug. 23-25, 2019.
The largest Disney fan event in the world will celebrate all the worlds of The Walt Disney Company, including Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars across the theme parks, film, television, online, music, products, live entertainment and more.
The expo will feature a massive show floor with exhibits, shopping and photo opportunities from Disney and their many partners. Guests can experience fan-favorites like the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony, which honors those who have made great contributions to the Disney legacy; an all-new exhibit form the Walt Disney Archives; Talent Central, where Disney fans can meet their favorite stars; and a daily parade on the expo’s show floor.
In addition, the Mousequerade costume contest is back, with actress Yvette Nicole Brown and Her Universe’s Ashley Eckstein as judges. The contest will feature dozens of creations from Disney style fans from all over the world.
2019’s D23 Expo will host a Design Challenge themed to the Haunted Mansion attraction, which will be celebrating its 50th anniversary at Disneyland next year. Creative fans are encouraged to design, paint, sculpt and create works of art inspired by the attraction and its 999 happy haunts.
Twenty-three pieces created by finalists will be on display throughout the Expo weekend at a gallery on the show floor. The winning artist will be chosen before the start of the convention, and will receive a cash prize of $2,300. More details on this contest and the Mousequerade will be released this fall.
