    Well considering its opening day and its early, thats not a bad turnout for something new. From what I've seen of what they have planned for this Expo, it looks like they have really gone to a lot of work and have a LOT for people to experience! If this is what they have for the inaugural year then next year should be spectacular!

    I don't buy that he was being 100% truthful.

    Re: D23 Expo Updates

    Iger went out of his way to say captain eo wasnt coming back?

    Like in the middle of his speech he was like "hurrr oh btw we know it would be cool to bring back EO but we arent"

    or did a fan ask him?

    Regarding Captain EO, if Al is correct maybe that means that Jay couldn't find Tomorrowland after all. Honestly, it feels a lot like exploiting the dead guy and it may better be left in the vault for awhile. Or use it in next year's Disney Treasure series and bring back Gala Day at Disneyland as well as Disneyland Showtime. That would be cool.

    oddly, there was no big news.

    The ABC thing is going on in the arena now. Doesn't seem to be a big draw for the guests.

    The Parks and Resorts pavilion seems to be most popular with the fans.

    Crowds have not been crazy. Very enjoyable.

    MiceChat booth has been packed.
