You know, I don’t even know if I can tell you what my favorite moments at D23Expo were. Why? Well because it was completely surreal to even be there and looking back a couple weeks later I still can’t. Thanks to Disney I was invited to be a part of a trip of a lifetime to attend Disney D23Expo. But you know what I’ll do my best. If you are a Disney fan, add this experience to your bucketlist. It’s a must see, a must do, a must experience that will bring back memories from childhood and fill your Disney loving heart. Let’s start with the first panel we attended, The Disney Legends.
Right out of the gate, the event started out incredible. I think it’s done purposefully to prep you for the weekend of amazing announcements and celebrity sigthings.
What a great panel right?!! I get goosebumps listening. I was there!!
Yes, the panels of course were outta control as well. We weren’t allowed to take videos or pictures so there’s no video just recaps here. Make sure to check those out! Here’s the Animated panel, here’s the link to the Live Action panel and of course here’s all the Disney Parks news you can handle!
Do you know about the D23 Membership? I learned about it from a press release I received and quickly signed up for it. There’s a free membership but I think the gold membership is for me! During our time at D23 we had the chance to ask Vice President of D23, Michael Vargo a few questions. Did you know that as a D23 member you get exclusive invites to events?! Yes! Turns out there were events held across the states for Beauty and The Beast. It was such a highly anticipated film that they did special screenings for members! Very VIP if you ask me!

Walt Disney Archives
One of the exhibits at D23 was the huge “Pirates Life for Me” exhibit. We got an exclusive tour before the exhibit floor opened by Rebecca Cline. Rebecca has been an archivist for Disney for over 20 years. How cool is that?! The archives included in this exhibit were as small in detail to as huge as the piano from one of the Pirates’ movies. Of course I can’t remember which one.. but just look at it! Incredible to see it in person. As well as some of the early sketches and cartoons from Disney. I loved walking thru the space and it was really special to see it with our small group. The wait on the line for this exhibit was always very long and while the space can fit a lot of people, to really enjoy it this was perfect.
What an amazing experience right?! I’m still in disbelief that I was even there. I’m stoked that I’ve had the opportunity to share it all with you as well! But this isn’t it! I’ve got more! Stay tuned as I’ll be sharing the Summer of Heroes from Disneyland and my experience of riding the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Disneyland!
