With less than a month to go before the D23 Expo, the good folks at Disney and D23 are scrambling to dot all the t’s and cross all the i’s and get this information out so that we’re all best prepared before we step foot onto the floor of the Anaheim Convention Center.
Many of the news items we have already shared with you. From the ABC panel hosted by Tom Bergeron to the Live Auction details and lots and performance by artist David Garibaldi to the Wizards of Waverly Place event and more.
Now we’d like to share some additional, smaller (but just as important) news items that we’ve been tweeting about (and even some new information) that don’t quite require their own article.
– Attendees will have the option of purchasing Twilight Tickets. Although prices haven’t been cited, the regular price for the Twilight Ticket is $46. The ticket allows you entry into one of the Disneyland Resort parks after 4 PM. Attendees will also have the ability to purchase single day park hoppers as well. Both kinds of tickets will be sold at the Disneyland kiosk.
– Stage 23 will be cleared out between each presentation so there is no squatting allowed
– Disney will be operating a canned food drive to benefit The Orange County Food Bank, so donations are encouraged
– The wristband you get from entering the D23 Expo is your ticket to dozens of additional discounts throughout the Orange County area. See here for details.
And now for some new tidbits…
– KFSN-TV, ABC 30 in Fresno will bring a mobile news unit inside D23 Expo to demonstrate the technology used today to be able to report news from virtually anywhere
– You’ll get first looks at Toy Story Midway Mania for the Nintendo Wii with game stations set up so you can play the game before its release. You’ll also get to look at some of the innovations from the Toy-morrow group including the Ultimate Buzz Lightyear (which you can also preview online here).
– Speaking of TSMM, 3D is all the rage and will not be neglected at the Expo either. On display will be the 3D camera used to produce all of the 3D presentations from the Disney Parks along with a top of the line 3D camera used in motion pictures today. You’ll also get sneak peeks at upcoming 3D projects from Walt Disney Studios.
