Looking for live coverage of the 2015 D23 Expo, including any news and updates for Walt Disney World and Disneyland? We will have it here! From the Parks & Resorts booth that will feature details about the World of Pandora (AVATAR Land) and Shanghai Disneyland to any surprise announcements about Star Wars Land…and anything else that comes up, I will share it here live.
Last night I got the chance to preview the show floor, including the Walt Disney Archives ‘Disneyland: The Exhibit’ booth, which celebrated 60 years of Disneyland with some cool pieces of Disneyland history. This booth has one spot devoted to Country Bear Jamboree, which alone says everything you need to know about how awesome it is.
If you’re heading out to the D23 Expo this year, you’re in for a treat, as there are a lot of cool looking booths and Disneyland: The Exhibit is just one of many things that looks well worth seeing.
For starters, we have separate posts for the three big pieces of news:
Okay, here are some photos from the D23 Expo….
John Lasseter gets the crowd hyped for the kickoff of D23 Expo weekend. Now let’s take a look at some of the items in Disneyland: The Exhibit…
There’s a whole section devoted to costuming.
The awesome monkeys from Fantasmic.
Main Street Electrical Parade Cheshire Cat float.
A pretty cool look at America Sings. You might also recognize some of the characters from Splash Mountain.
The booth has several ride vehicles and ‘scenes’ from their respective attractions.
Various Disneyland items.
This model Main Street Electrical Parade on Main Street is so awesome…I could’ve looked at it for hours.
Table setting from Club 33 pre-refurbishment, plus some original art that graced the walls.
Pirates of the Caribbean tribute.
YES! Country Bear Jamboree tribute. I think we can all agree that the booth should have just been one big CBJ tribute, but oh well. Something is better than nothing.
Alice figure from the recently refurbished Alice in Wonderland dark ride.
Mickey Mouse Club outfit
Finally, where it all started–the very first Disneyland ticket. Slightly cheaper than today’s!
