Despite D23 Expo and their promoters being super stingy with the Press Badges this year, I was able to get a Guest Pass through my friend who is a cast member at Disneyland. I was only there for a few hours, so I didn’t really do much besides stand in line and shop, but I still managed to take enough photos that I’m going to break them up into three posts!
The first post features the Expo itself, including the pavilions. This being the Disney con, there was a lot of promoting to be done by all of the different parts of the company. Two of the biggest marketing pushes were for, of course, the new Star Wars film coming out at the end of 2015 and the new Shanghai Disneyland theme park opening in China in spring 2016.
Americans like their itashas, also, lol.
The Pizza Planet truck from Toy Story.
Greg Dykstra discusses sculptures from The Good Dinosaur.
Stormtrooper uniforms on display.
Heading into the Shanghai Disneyland pavilion!
Treasure Cove is centered around Pirates of the Caribbean and Jack Sparrow. More attractions planned for this park are in the Facebook album.
Of course there will be plenty of shopping in the Disneytown marketplace in Shanghai Disneyland.
Wall of wish locks. You could write wishes and then “lock” them to the display.
I couldn’t really tell if there were any improvements over the last D23 Expo, so I guess that means things weren’t worse, lol. Maybe next time I’ll try to spend a little more time there!
