    Arrow Disney Parks and Resorts Announce Their Plans For D23 Expo!

    Here's a little something to wet your whistle and entice you to the D23 Expo this September. The Walt Disney Parks and resorts are finally announcing a bit of what they intend to include at the Expo, and I can't help but think that this is really going to appeal to the fan community. There's a little something for every Disney fan here, and a little extra for those of you who have always wanted to know what it takes to become an Imagineer. Soon, we'll have the definitive answer.

    So, if you are ready to meet Lucky, Wall-E, a boat load of Imagineers, and find out some interesting news about the Parks and Resorts, read along with me below:



    Walt Disney Parks and Resorts to Offer a Glimpse
    “Behind the Magic” at Disney’s D23 EXPO, Sept. 10-13

    Burbank, Calif., Aug. 3, 2009 – What will Disney’s theme parks and resorts look like in the future? Fans will learn the answer to that question and many more as they take a “behind-the-magic” tour of their favorite Disney destinations at the inaugural D23 EXPO, where the entire world of Disney will come together under one roof at the Anaheim Convention Center in California from September 10-13.

    Through a series of stunning displays and not-to-be-missed presentations, D23 EXPO attendees will explore the rich legacy and future of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts a story that began in 1955 with Disneyland and has since grown to include 11 theme parks at five vacation destinations around the globe, as well as new immersive vacation experiences including the Disney Cruise Line, Adventures By Disney and the Disney Vacation Club. On Saturday, Sept. 12, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo will share some “behind-the-magic” details as he pulls back the curtain on several new projects including the 12-acre Cars Land that’s set to open at Disney’s California Adventure in 2012.

    Here’s a sampling of exciting Disney Parks experiences that D23 EXPO attendees will discover:


    • Never-before-seen models of classic Disney attractions and glimpses of coming projects that will surprise and delight even the most knowledgeable Disney fans.
    • An exclusive sneak peek at the expansion of Disney’s California Adventure that’s so big, it won’t fit inside the Blue Sky Cellar.
    • The chance to meet, up close and personal, Lucky the Dinosaur and Wall-E.
    • A preview of the most advanced Audio-Animatronics figures ever created.
    • Displays showcasing cutting-edge effects technologies that are being developed for Disney attractions, shows and venues.
    • New Disney Cruise Line itineraries for 2011.


    Also, in the 500-seat Storytellers Theater, Imagineers and Cast Members who create and operate Disney’s parks, resorts, cruise ships and other vacation experiences will take fans behind-the-magic with a variety of presentations including:


    • World of Color – Imagineer Steven Davison brings to life World of Color, the water-and-fire spectacular that will debut next year at Disney’s California Adventure.
    • The Making of Toy Story Mania! – From its interactive elements and innovative ride system to its cutting-edge Audio-Animatronics figure of Mr. Potato Head, Toy Story Mania! represents a new kind of Disney theme park attraction. Meet the team who helped bring it to life.
    • “So You Want to Become an Imagineer” – A panel of Imagineers will answer one of the most frequently asked questions of Walt Disney Imagineering – “How does one become an Imagineer?” – and will share what it’s like to be one.
    • The Making of the U.S. Presidents – Imagineers will talk about updating both Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln at Disneyland and Hall of Presidents at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
    • An Afternoon With Imagineering Legends – Disney Legend Marty Sklar will lead a celebration of the careers and accomplishments of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Cast Members who have been named Disney Legends.

    Special vacation packages including Disneyland Resort hotel accommodations, D23 EXPO tickets and theme park admission are available at the D23 EXPO website. Packages are available from both the Walt Disney Travel Company and the Anaheim/ Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau, which is offering a limited number of area hotel rooms at special rates to those attending the D23 EXPO.

    Can anyone attend this event? Or do you first have to pay to join D23 and then pay to go to the event?

    Yep, anyone can attend. You do NOT need to be a D23 member. Although, D23 members do get a discount.

    From everything I've heard, this is the ultimate event for Disney fans.

    Here's the info for tickets: Tickets Now Available for the D23 EXPO, Anaheim Convention Center Sept. 10-13

    Go to the D23 site and they have posted a schedule of the major activites such as the various keynote addresses. You could plan your day around that.
