D23 Dates are Announced for 2015
D23 is Disney’s official fan club and every other year, members are able to descend upon Anaheim Convention Centre in California and take in all there is to know about all things Disney. Be it movies, merchandise, attractions or fun, the D23 Expo is the hottest thing on the calendar for Disney fans!
The 2013 D23 Expo was viewed by many Disney Park fans as a bitter disappointment.
Typically the event is used to launch announcements for new theme park attractions and developments and rumors of a Star Wars land, a Cars land, Avatar and much more had been circulating for many months leading up to the 2013 event.
Amazingly, other than a few teasers, nothing came from the D23 Expo in 2013 and to date, only Avatar saw any movement on the PR front in the winter months of 2013.
Not due to be completed until 2017 at least, it really is becoming apparent that Disney are for now, concentrating on the commercial side of the business with huge projects including Disney Springs and MyMagic+.
While many fans may have been disappointed, Disney would be crazy not to make the most of the time between now and the 2015 D23 to widen the narrowing gap that observers are witnessing between WDW and the ferociously competitive Universal parks.
The fourth D23 event looks set to attract in the region of 65,000 Disney fans, eagerly seeking new ways that Disney plan to interact with them.
Superstars and celebrities will make guest appearances, and seminars and presentations will offer in depth looks into what will make the huge entertainment organisation ‘even more entertaining’.
Advance tickets for D23 Expo 2015 will go on sale at D23Expo.com beginning August 14, 2014.
