Advance Tickets on Sale July 14, 2016, for the Biggest Disney Fan
Event Ever

BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–All the magic and excitement of the past, present, and future of Disney
entertainment will come together once again when D23:
The Official Disney Fan Club
presents D23
Expo 2017
at the Anaheim Convention Center the weekend of July
14–16. Each of Disney’s magical worlds will unite under one roof to
celebrate what’s new and what’s on the horizon from theme parks,
television, music, gaming, and films, including Pixar, Star Wars,
and Marvel.

Highlights planned for D23 Expo include the Disney Legends Ceremony,
which honors the talented men and women who have made significant
contributions to the Disney legacy; an all-new exhibit curated by the
Walt Disney Archives; D23 Expo’s costume contest, Mousequerade,
showcasing the most creative designs by fans; the D23 Expo Emporium,
where Disney fans can buy, sell, and trade Disney collectibles,
memorabilia, merchandise, and more; and the D23 Expo Design Challenge.
(Details on the Design Challenge and Mousequerade will be
forthcoming.)

The 2017 Expo will feature a massive show floor full of immersive
experiences and special opportunities to see what’s next for Disney
around the world—and guests may run into their favorite Disney stars,
characters, Imagineers, animators, and filmmakers. StagePass, the
popular ticket distribution system that allows attendees to obtain
guaranteed seats for some of Expo’s most popular presentations, and
StorePass, which allows priority entry to select shopping venues at the
event, will once again enhance the guest experience. Hall D23, the
popular presentation and performance venue featuring more than 7,000
seats, will return, as will Stage 23, Stage 28, and Center Stage.

The fifth event follows the success of D23
Expo 2015
, which drew tens of thousands of Disney fans for three
star-studded days and nights. Guests were treated to appearances by such
celebrities as Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Evans,
Ginnifer Goodwin, and Dwayne Johnson and watched performances by Ne-Yo,
Sabrina Carpenter, the cast of Teen Beach 2 and stars of Disney’s
shows on Broadway. Guests previewed costumes from Star Wars: The
Force Awakens
and were the first to hear about the new Star Wars-themed
lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. They also
enjoyed a look back at Disney’s rich history through extraordinary
panels, presentations, and exhibits and discovered the newest
entertainment, technology, and products coming from Disney.
