D23 Expo 2022 - Mickey Mouse

D23 has announced new details about D23 Expo 2022, including the on sale date for tickets, and here’s what we know:

D23 Expo 2022 will run September 9-11, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

D23 Expo 2022 will feature more than 50 shows, presentations, and panels, including the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony, which honors the talented individuals who have made significant contributions to the Disney legacy.

It will also kick off Disney100, the centennial celebration of The Walt Disney Company, and the D23 Expo will feature an all-new exhibit curated by the Walt Disney Archives highlighting the 100th anniversary of Disney.

D23 Expo 2022 - Masquerade costume contest judges


Cosplayers attending should dress to impress for the return of the the Mousequerade costume contest. The contest will feature new and returning categories including “Off the Screen,” “Imagine That!,” “Magical Mashups,” and “Cast of Characters,” as well as a fan-favorite award voted on by the audience and a “Best in Show” prize of $2,300.

The fabulous and fashionable Nina West will be hosting the contest, with Yvette Nicole Brown (“Big Shot,” “Disenchanted”), Ashley Eckstein (voice of Ahsoka Tano and creator of Her Universe), and Ally Maki (“Toy Story 4,” “Home Sweet Home Alone”) judging.


Plus D23 and the Walt Disney Archives, working with new D23 Expo Platinum sponsor Amazon, are restoring Walt Disney’s Grumman Gulfstream I company airplane, currently housed backstage at Walt Disney World Resort, and transporting it to Anaheim.

The aircraft was seen for years as part of the Studio Backlot Tour at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and will be on display at D23 Expo 2022 for guests to see in an exhibit called Mickey Mouse One: Walt’s Plane presented by Amazon.


The 7,000-seat Hall D23 returns and will be joined this year by the 3,000-seat Premiere Stage, the 1,200-seat Backlot Stage, and the expanded, 700-seat Walt Disney Archives Stage for more presentations curated by the staff of the Archives.

On the main show floor, the D23 Expo Live! Stage will feature performances, appearances, demonstrations, and more all weekend long, many of which will be livestreamed to guests at home.

Regularly priced single-day tickets are $99 for a one-day adult admission/$79 for children age 3-12, and money-saving three-day tickets are also available at $279 adults/$209 children.
