And LAST is never LEAST!
You never know! They have promised to do the D23 Expo every two years, so the next time would be 2013. It was in September once, you never know it could work out with the ultimate Real Life Game, next time, you never know!

Which pictures? Also I like wearing dresses, and since we have been doing lots of manual labor at home, vacation seems to be the only time that I can wear nice dresses and skirts! A girl goes through withdrawl sometimes!

That would mean that we would have to take them out of the bag! Normally after these shopping trips, I'm lucky to find a location to put the bag of pins/shirts/paintings/DVDs/insert product type here. Basically getting them out of the car and finding a place that they don't block our walkways is a feat. To actually do something to organize them as I said, I will someday have quite the estate/garage/collector sale!

I would love that! You would have a great time! We would just have to be Sorcerer's otherwise based on this time it is a real pain!

From what I am hearing from those who don't have the special packages, the waits are more than insane. I think they might need to reconsider the next one and not plan on packing people in like they do in the parks. We are planning on getting in line 3 hours before the presentation that we want to see tomorrow. That's sad.

Pictures during trip reports, always nice sundresses.


You need a Disney room, or possible a Disney house to display all your loot.

I agree..I think they will organize it all again next time and wouldn't doubt if different types of tier tickets were sold...just so crazy with big lines and such. My friend's daughter and husband came and went right from Studios (first 20 out of the door) to line up for Pixar, ended up in standby room and waited 2 1/2 hours and still did not get in. I want this to be a success but now it seems like too much success
PINS! I didn't know you guys were pin collectors.
I agree about Legends..I was going to leave early to see Prep and Landing but really, the show was very touching and I wanted to see Henson's family and glad I did. So many amazing people. Allison..they plussed the lounge a bit..they now have trail mix and energy bars to grab and go which helps.

I wouldn't really call us pin collectors since once we buy them we don't do anything with them.

I spent a good deal of time in the lounge yesterday what with the lines and craziness.

Expo update, sweet!
The perfect way to start a lazy Sunday is by reading about your totally packed weekend.

You need to get Fran interested in eBay as her new hobby. You two have a fortune in Disney collectibles tucked away.

Anyway, thanks so much for the Disney Legends update. What a cool segment!

GET her interested in eBay! She's practically a Charter Member. How do you think we got half the collectibles!

She's even kept up on her bids via smartphone while we were in line this weekend.

Hopefully tonight I can wrap up Friday's activities. They didn't allow electronics in Saturday morning's presentation, but I took good notes.

Thank you so much for the Disney Legends pictures. I really didn't expect any updates like that until after the Expo.

One thing about May's Destination D event was that there were no lines. Everyone was guaranteed admission to all presentations. I downloaded the guidebook with each day's schedules, and it's impossible to see everything regardless of the lines.

That Mickey's of Glendale picture was hilarious - it would have been fun to just be there and watch all of that shopping chaos! (The Cars Land jacket looks amazing!)

I'm looking forward to more of your updates!
Robert

Thanks for the Legends report. We were able to go one day last minute so we really didn't expect to go to any presentations. I'm looking forward to other folk's reports.

My DD BFF went with another friend early to go to the Legends presentation. I "forgot" to tell her that she might want to go earlier than 10 My DD met another friend that was on the Expo staff working the line for Disney Parks and resorts presentation. She said that there was a back up line for the stand by line!
