The D23 Expo will return to the Anaheim Convention Center from Aug. 9 through 11, 2013. On Thursday, Aug. 9, at 1 p.m. Eastern, D23 will begin selling tickets for the next Expo. The D23 Expo is the largest Disney fan celebration around the world featuring the all types of Disney entertainment including The Walt Disney Studios; Walt Disney Parks and Resorts; Disney Consumer Products; ABC, ABC Family, Disney Channel, Radio Disney; and Disney Interactive.
More than 40,000 Disney fans from around the world gathered at the Anaheim Convention Center in 2011 for the second D23 Expo: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event. In anticipation of even bigger attendance, D23 Expo 2013 will feature: an overflow theater for the D23 Arena, which will accommodate more than 2,000 guests for live streaming of the popular Arena presentations; nearly double the size of presentation venue Stage 23; and an expanded show floor, to include Halls A, B, C and D, as well as a larger Collectors’ Forum to provide even more magical experiences for guests.
As in previous Expos, D23 Expo 2013 will showcase all of the latest stars in the Disney universe who come together to bring special presentations, announcements, and performances to Disney fans throughout the three-day extravaganza.
D23 Expo 2013 will also feature the Disney Legends Awards; an all-new Fan Art Contest themed to the upcoming 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins; the 12,000 square-foot Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit featuring costumes, props, and set pieces from Disney’s rich history; plus amazing live events, celebrity appearances, panels and presentations, sneak peeks, and unique experiences that celebrate the past, present, and future of Disney.
