Update 2: As usual, Inside the Magic also has outstanding reports and fantastic photos: http://www.insidethemagic.net/?s=D23+Expo
Update: Friend of the site Tom Bricker is putting together live updates of the best coverage here: http://www.disneytouristblog.com/d23-expo-2011-live-news-coverage/
The big D23 Expo is this weekend in Anaheim, California. It’s a huge event that brings fans, “celebrities,” and Disney executives together in what is billed as “The Ultimate Disney Fan Event.” As a “theme park watching” website, we are interested in a couple of the presentations in particular. At 3:30pm on August 19th, there is a one hour presentation on upcoming projects at Disney’s Parks and Resorts. The other is Walt Disney Studios presentation on Saturday from 10:30am – 1pm. We can assume there will be other announcements worth noting throughout the weekend, but those are the two biggies. While your author is not attending (stuck at Disney World, pity), the rest of the blogosphere is.
I recommend keeping an eye on http://wdwnewstoday.com/d23/ for live coverage of the event, if it’s of interest, and I’ll report back on any major revelations.
