Disney fans have something incredible to look forward to starting today -- the company's first-ever D23 Expo, to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center until Sept. 13.
You know it must be promising something huge when the Expo boasts "The Ultimate Disney Fan Experience."
In addition to catching glimpses of upcoming movie "Tron: Legacy" and new fall series "FlashForward," fans also will be able to go behind the scenes with "Inside the Disney Studios" presentation as well as see props and costumes from past pics such as "Pirates of the Caribbean." There will even be a "Lost" element, featuring costumes and set pieces from the show -- a nice jolt to keep me going until the final season arrives early next year!
Disney president-CEO Bob Iger will kick things off today, and other special guests during the Expo will include Tim Burton, Robert Zemeckis, Courteney Cox, the cast of "Wizards of Waverly Place" and Nicolas Cage.
Ian, CC and I will be heading down there on Friday, and I'll be tweeting any presentations we attend. Stay tuned!
Can't wait to see what the kiddo thinks of all Disney, all the time!
