With D23 Expo taking place on the west coast last year, that means it’s time once again for Destination D23 to take place on the east coast this year!
As the company celebrates Disney100 Years of Wonder campaign, fans can expect illuminating stories running the gamut of the company history as they hear from Disney archivists, historians, Imagineers, cast members, Disney Legends, and luminaries.
The event will span three days featuring a slew of notables. Josh D’Amaro, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products chairman, returns to host a presentation about what makes the Disney experiences so magical and memorable for our guests and fans around the world.
There will also be panels looking at Walt’s earliest days in California, the “Disney you didn’t know” featuring astonishing Disney facts, and 100 years of “Weird Disney.” Plus, the Walt Disney Archives will have a special exhibit in honor of Disney’s 100-year milestone, Mickey’s of Glendale brings back its popular pop-up shop featuring Destination D23 and Walt Disney Imagineering offerings, and the Ink & Paint Marketplace will offer a bounty of merchandise and collectibles.
For the first time ever, The Walt Disney Company Store will open a pop-up store offering employee and D23 Member-exclusive merchandise.
