I loved D23 when I had the opportunity to attend the event 2 years ago. Unfortunately this year I just wasn’t able to make it. However, I am going to be posting as much as I can as Disney shares all of the exciting news coming out of the event. There is so much happening in and around Disney parks worldwide and I’m so excited to see all that is unveiled this weekend. Keep watching for more information.
Pictures and information by Disney Destinations – Thank you for all of this amazing information.
As we previously shared, this weekend’s D23 Expo 2019 will showcase dozens of exclusive reveals and announcements for Disney parks and resorts across the globe. And to kick things off, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek shared exciting news from Anaheim tonight as a preview of what’s to come this weekend!
An all-new Star Wars vacation experience is coming to Walt Disney World® Resort!
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will be a new, first-of-its-kind vacation experience where Guests will check in for a two-night adventure aboard a glamorous starship. Once onboard, Guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey.
Inside the Disney Parks “Imagining Tomorrow, Today” pavilion at D23 Expo, visitors will be able to see a new model and incredible visuals of the starcruiser – called the Halcyon.
Also at Walt Disney World Resort, we’ve got big plans for our multi-year transformation of Epcot®, with new experiences that will make the park more Disney, more family, more timeless and more relevant to the millions of Guests who visit each year.
The reinvention of Epcot will include Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana.” This first-ever attraction based on the Walt Disney Animation Studios hit film, “Moana,” will let Guests interact with magical, living water in a beautiful and inspiring setting.
And this October, you will be able to visualize all of the exciting plans for Epcot at a new experience center in the Odyssey Events Pavilion, called Walt Disney Imagineering presents the Epcot Experience. Inside this first-of-its-kind offering within a Disney park, you will discover engaging and interactive exhibits that allow you to step inside the relentless innovation, energy and excitement and see some never-before-revealed details driving the future of Epcot all throughout this unprecedented period of transformation.
At Disney California Adventure® and Disneyland Paris, we’ve already shared updates that we’re building immersive Super Hero themed lands. Today, we’re thrilled to announce these fantastic lands will be called Avengers Campus.
When you visit Avengers Campus, you will become part of an interconnected, global story that spans from California to Paris to Hong Kong with the Avengers recruiting new extraordinary people to join them.
Inside our pavilion at D23 Expo, you will be able to see an in-story experience where you’ll learn why the Avengers are building these campuses. And on Sunday, we’ll share more details about what you will be able to experience when they open.
The pavilion will also feature many of the attractions and lands coming to our sites around the world including TRON Lightcycle Run coming to Magic Kingdom® Park, as well as additional expansions in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Here’s a quick look inside:
If you’re excited about today’s announcements, the best is still to come!
