This year’s D23 expo at Walt Disney World Resort is sold out. The event for Disney’s most prominent fan base is being held at the Contemporary Resort the weekend of September 8-10.

D23 Schedule

Disney has released a schedule (shared below) that breaks down the itinerary of September 9 and September 10 events. Among its many presentations are “100 Years of Classic Characters: Unforgettable Stories”, “Marvel’s Avengers: Beyond Earth’s Mightiest – Celebrating 60 years,” and “Weird Disney: Centennial Edition.”

Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort fans also look forward to “A Celebration of Disney Parks, Experience and Products: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” on Saturday morning.

D23 From Your Home

However, there’s some exciting news for those unable to acquire tickets to this year’s D23. It will be available for live streaming from the comfort of your house! On D23.com, Disney fans of all shapes, sizes, ages, and income levels can tune in real time- to watch this year’s events.

Previous D23 expos have introduced new movies, theme park attractions, and a host of surprises. With Disney’s 100th anniversary this year, we can only imagine what kind of surprises and special announcements the Walt Disney Company may have in store. The event will likely combine a look back on the past 100 years while also focusing on the company’s future, including its movies, theme parks, cruise lines, streaming service, and more.

However, those looking for political drama will likely be disappointed, as the odds are low that the fight with Governor Ron DeSantis or the Florida Tourism Oversight Board will be discussed. Then again…never say never.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
