D23 Announces 2013 D23 Expo Dates
Last summer, over 40,000 Disney fans from all over the world gathered in Anaheim, CA for the 2011 D23 Expo. The three-day convention highlighted all different divisions of The Walt Disney Company, with special presentations, performances, exhibits, merchandise, and more. Yesterday, D23 announced that the Expo will be returning to the Anaheim Convention Center once again next year, where it will take place August 9-11, 2013.
“The D23 Expo has become a phenomenal way for Disney fans to see everything they love about Disney all in one place – from Disney’s biggest stars and latest innovations to unforgettable performances live on stage,” said Steven Clark, head of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, which produces the bi-annual D23 Expo. “Our third Expo is sure to create even more magical new experiences and memories for our biggest fans attending from throughout the U.S. and around the globe.”
Some of the offerings that guests can look forward to at the 2013 Expo will include the annual Disney Legends ceremony, the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit, and a massive show floor and Collectors Forum full of exclusive merchandise and special looks at what’s coming next for Disney. In addition, more guests will be able to enjoy some of the exciting presentations at the Expo in 2013, as some of the more popular venues will feature expanded capacities from 2011.
“Anaheim is extremely pleased that the D23 Expo will be returning next year,” said Charles Ahlers, president, Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau. “This exciting event is quickly becoming an industry icon, drawing Disney fans from around the world. The Anaheim community truly appreciates and enjoys this quality show and positive impacts it brings.”
Tickets will go on sale for the 2013 D23 Expo beginning August 9, 2012 on D23Expo.com. D23 members will receive special pricing on either one or three-day passes for the Expo, as well as early admission to the Expo show floor. Stay tuned for more news on this exciting event.
