D23 Expo: The Adventure Begins

I’m running on about 4-hours sleep, but I’m at the airport and ready to GO!

My bags are packed, my ears are on (really, they are!) and I’m anxiously waiting for my flight to board.

On the schedule this weekend?  The D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

What exactly is D23 Expo?  It’s billed as the ultimate fan experience for Disney lovers.  As you might have guessed, I fit that description.

A little bit.

The Expo happens every 2 years and I watched with extreme envy in 2013 as my blogger buddies streamed their adventures live from the Expo floor. I knew when the event came around for 2015 I had to be there.

The schedule is pretty impressive: live performances, Radio Disney, Imagineers, Disney Legends, Muppets, Jedis, and so much more!

D23 Expo 1

Since this is my first experience, I’m sure I’m doing it all wrong.

Well- I know I am.  I’m already “late” to the party since I chose to fly in Friday morning.  People were lined up starting at 9 pm last night to get into the exhibition halls and merchandise lines.  Oy Vey.

It’s all good.  I’m going to have a blast, no matter what I “miss”.

Sorcerer ears

We hope to hear some Star Wars news (new race in Walt Disney World? New lands at both coasts? New movie trailer?) though and if that comes out, you know I’ll share what I know.

Follow along on Twitter @longhorns2, Instagram @noguiltlife and Periscope (if connections are good!) @longhorns2.

Have you ever been to D23 Expo?  What do you hope to hear about the parks or movies this year?
