    Post D23 Expo - Disney Consumer Products Agenda - Star Wars, Marvel, Shopping

    Disney Consumer Products has released their D23 Expo plans and it's quite ambitious. Fans will be happy to see Star Wars, Marvel, story boards from "Frozen," re-interpretation of Steamboat Willie, Spider Man, an 1,800 square foot Disney Store with special merchandise, a Roy E. Disney tribute, and a bunch of panel discussions and presentations.

    I was surprised to see so much that I'm actually interested in from Consumer Products. Not normally my main interest at the Expo. Take a look and let us know which of these items will make your list.

    DISNEY CONSUMER PRODUCTS TAKES FANS ON JOURNEY FROM SKETCH TO SHELF AT DISNEY’S D23 EXPO 2013

    Disney’s Ultimate Fans to Enjoy Access to Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Content and Merchandise


    Glendale, Calif. – July 9, 2013 — Disney Consumer Products (DCP) will give Disney’s most loyal fans an up close look at an extensive collection of interactive experiences and merchandise that celebrate Disney, Marvel and Star Wars timeless characters during the bi-annual D23 Expo, the ultimate Disney fan event. Held at the Anaheim Convention Center from Aug. 9-11, 2013, Disney fans will have the chance to follow their favorite products from “sketch to shelf” and learn how Disney Consumer Products extends storytelling from character and content extension to product development through featured discussions, art and sculptures and final product displays.

    While at the D23 Expo fans will also be able to immerse themselves in exhibits, hands-on demonstrations, special signing opportunities and exclusive product offerings at the Disney Consumer Products Pavilion.

    Disney Consumer Products’ exciting lineup of events and attractions includes:

The collection will be available for purchase along with an exclusive-to-D23 Expo-only Swarovski crystal-encrusted Ariel compact mirror.

    Muppets!!! I hope it won't cost too much to create and take one home. Hopefully this is a step up from the Whatnots. I would rather create a Muppet dog or a monster.

    Can't wait for the Marty Sklar presentation and signing! I am buying the book at the event via the RSP. Do you know if they only allow you to sign his book if it is bought there? Or will they sign other items too?
