As we look forward to the second annual Disney’s D23 Expo, being held from August 19-21, 2011, once again at the Anaheim Convention Center, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the very first D23 Expo in this previously unreleased video.

D23 ExpoFrom September 10-13, 2009, an historic event took place not just for the Disney company, but for Disney fans from around the world, as the Disney D23Expo was held at the Anaheim Convention Center. For the first time, Disney brought together all areas of the company together, from the Disney Studios to Parks & Resorts, Consumer Products, TV, animation, and so much more. But more importantly, the brought them together for and with the Disney fans in an environment that can only be described as magical. Heralded as the Ultimate Disney Fan Experience, it stayed true to its goal, as for four days, Disney fans were treated to all of the fun, wonder and adventure as the past, present and future of Disney were shared with their most devoted fans.

There was so much to see and do, as fun and magic were being made not just by Disney, but by the attendees themselves. We had a chance to talk to guests, celebrities such as John Tartaglia, Alice in Wonderland, the Red Queen and even Wall-E.

  2. Hi Lou,

    Thanks for that.

    I’m well behind with the shows so I only listened to show #137 the other day so it was nice to see some of the things you talked about.

    I’m hoping to attend the 2013 (I guess?) D23 Expo – so I’ll hopefully see you then!

    Cheers,
