Disney Sets Dates for D23 Expo 2017

D23 Expo 2017 will kick off July 14 at the Anaheim Convention Center, bringing all of the worlds of Disney together under one roof.

The three-day event will celebrate new Disney ventures and what’s to come for theme parks, television, music, gaming and films, including studio properties Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel.

The 2017 expo will feature the Disney Legends Ceremony, which honors the men and women who have made significant contributions to Disney; D23 Expo’s costume contest, Mousequerade, showcasing the most creative designs by fans; and the D23 Expo Emporium, where fans can buy, sell and trade Disney collectibles, memorabilia and merchandise.

An all-new exhibit curated by the Walt Disney Archives will also debut at the event.

This announcement makes July 2017 a busy time for fanboys. Though dates for San Diego Comic-Con 2017 have not yet been released, the popular convention usually takes place within the last weeks of July.

The D23 Expo last year drew in thousands of fans and such stars as Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Evans and Dwayne Johnson. Details about new “Star Wars”-themed lands coming to Disneyland were also released.

Advance tickets for Expo 2017 go on sale July 14, 2016, at D23Expo.com. D23 members will receive special pricing on both one- and three-day tickets to the event, which is open to the general public.
