The D23 Expo is all sold out this year. So if you’re one of the ones who waiting too long, or weren’t planning to go in the fist place, there’s some good news. Two events on all three days will be live streamed on the internet. We’re most excited about the Disney Legends Ceremony. Definitely some deserving names on that list.
We also like how Disney added a session from National Geographic. That’s one of the properties recently acquired with the Fox purchase that aligns closely with the existing Disney brand. Both of Sunday’s panels look fantastic too.
It may not be the big hall D23 Expo sessions, but you will learn a lot from these.
