The first night of the D23 EXPO was kicked off in style with a special party at Catal in Downtown Disney hosted by OH MY DISNEY. Invited attendees were able to munch on an assortment of goodies including paella, sliders, and mushroom flatbread. There was also a dessert station featuring delicate little sugar temptations and an open bar to wash it all down.

There was a BUILD YOUR OWN EARS station that let you take a plain pair of Mickey ear headbands and bedazzle with beads, gems, flowers and more for a custom look.

A DJ spun music all night long and for us the highlight was winning the evening’s trivia challenge. The prize? A bag full of Tsum Tsums! Speaking of Tsum Tsums, there was also a model at the party wearing a fabulous dress that was completely covered in Tsum Tsums. The whole evening was capped off by a fantastic view of Disneyland’s fireworks from the restaurant’s upper balcony.

Not a bad way to kick off what would be a whirlwind weekend of announcements, previews, and nostalgic rewinds.
