Every other year, D23 — the official Disney fan club — hosts a massive expo at the Anaheim Convention Center, right across the street from Disneyland Resort. The D23 Expo features a number of fun and informative panels, a ton of Disney stars, and a lot of great merchandise you can purchase to remember your time there. The D23 Expo is incredibly popular and draws thousands of Disney fans to Southern California, with tickets selling out relatively quickly.
