    Carousel of Projects: Disney Parks and Resorts Announces Their Schedule for D23 Expo

    Here's an announcement many of you have been waiting for. Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has announced their agenda for the August D23 Convention. Without question, Parks and Resorts was the hit of the last expo with an amazing intro, models for upcoming attractions at Hong Kong Disneyland, Imagineers available to the public, interactive animatronics on display and more.

    This year, you can expect to find lots of info on Cars Land and Radiator Spring Racers, detailed plans for Disney World's Fantasyland Expansion, lots of panel discussions and presentations with the Imagineers, AND an Imagineering store with all sorts of exclusive items for sale.

    Walt Disney Parks and Resorts to Take Fans Through the
    “Carousel of Projects” at Disney’s D23 Expo, August 19-21, 2011
    BURBANK, Calif. (July 18, 2011) – Fans attending Disney’s D23 Expo August 19-21 at the Anaheim Convention Center will have the chance to experience “a great big beautiful tomorrow” as they immerse themselves in the future of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, which is currently in the biggest period of global expansion in its history.

    Drawing inspiration from a classic attraction that debuted at the 1964 New York World’s Fair and has made stops at Disneyland in California and Magic Kingdom in Florida, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts invites attendees to hop aboard the “Carousel ofProjects” for a sneak peek at concepts, designs, models, storytelling tools, and technologies currently being developed at Walt Disney Imagineering for Disney parks around the world.

    Throughout the weekend, exclusively at the D23 Expo, fans will get a look at the latest details for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts’ 11 parks and five resorts around the world, as well as Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney and Disney Vacation Club, including:

    ·Actual figures, props and ride vehicles for Radiators Springs Racers, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the building of Cars Land, the newest land at Disney California Adventure which opens next year.
    ·The opportunity to meet a classic Disney icon in an entirely new way.
    ·Concepts, models and plans for Fantasyland, one of the most ambitious expansions in the 40-year history of Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
    ·What’s new at Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney and Disney Vacation Club.

    In addition to the pavilion, D23 Expo attendees will also have the chance to attend numerous presentations and panel discussions. On Friday, August 19, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs will give guests in the 4,000-seat main arena an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at some of the biggest projects currently underway at Disney parks, featuring a few surprises along the way.

    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 nine exciting presentations including:

    ·Radiator Springs Reality: Imagineering Cars Land for Disney California Adventure – Join Disney•Pixar’s John Lasseter and a panel of Imagineers and Pixar creative talent as they share the twists and turns through the real-life development of Radiator Springs.
    ·The Making of Star Tours - The Adventures Continue – Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald will share the inside scoop on how Walt Disney Imagineering and George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic began laying the groundwork for a new version of Star Tours.
    ·A Good Look at Buena Vista Street –Imagineers Lisa Girolami, Ray Spencer, and Coulter Winn provide a preview of the new entrance to Disney California Adventure, an idealized depiction of the Los Angeles Walt Disney lived and worked in throughout the 1920s and 1930s.
    ·Imagineering the Dream and the Fantasy – Imagineers Joe Lanzisero and Bob Zalk talk about charting the design course of the two newest Disney cruise ships.
    ·Legends of Walt Disney Imagineering – Disney Legend Marty Sklar will lead a celebration of the careers and accomplishments of Walt Disney Imagineering, including Alice Davis, Orlando Ferrante, Bob Gurr, and Don Iwerks. With special guest and current Imagineer Kim Irvine, daughter of Disney Legend Leota Toombs.

    In addition, and for the first time, the Parks and Resorts pavilion will also feature Mickey’s of Glendale, an outlet of Walt Disney Imagineering’s employee-only store, where—for just three days– guests can shop for “Carousel of Projects” souvenirs and collectibles and Walt Disney Imagineering merchandise not available anywhere else.

    The expo is at the Anaheim Convention Center (just behind Disney California Adventure). There are a variety of prices for the event depending on the number of days you wish to visit. Here's the link: http://www.D23Expo.com.

    I suspect that this: "The opportunity to meet a classic Disney icon in an entirely new way." means that we may get to meet talking Mickey! That would be very cool to check out.

    I am most interested in "Mickey's of Glendale" store, what do they usually sell there (at their Glendale location)? I only know about pins that I got a few from trading.

    It will be nice to see all of these things, but it is a bummer that there is nothing new to announce.

    But you can bet that I'm excited about that WDI shop

    How would you know if there's not anything to be announced? It hasn't been announced yet.

    Yay, this is finally something to get really excited about! Maybe I am naive and having too high of expectations, but this mean you will actually sit in a revolving theater similar to CoP? That would be awesome if somehow true!

    Sigh, I wish I could go, just only for one day of the various cool things there. I am sure the WDI Shop is going to have a lot of "cool and not found anywhere else" products that you can't just as easily buy on Disneystore online, like hard to find soundtracks & collectibles!

    Not drooling too much cause I bet a majority of stuff ends up in either the Blue Sky Cellar or One Man's Dream exhibits after it is all over.
