So as most of you know Disney holds an expo in the US every 2 years. The expo for this year was on the weekend during July 14-16. My boyfriend and I decided to go (well, ok, I decided to go) and his sister ended up coming too.



Lately I've started to get back into fan conventions. I went to a couple Star Wars Celebrations a while ago but kind of stopped once graduate school and real life jobs started. A few years ago we decided to spend a day at the Dallas Fan Expo and had a great time so we've gone to a couple since then.

Let's get the boring details out of the way:

Trip dates: Thursday July 13-Tuesday July 18
Flights: Southwest, Thursday at 5:25 am (ouch for the wake up call) and Southwest, Tuesday at 8:30 pm
Hotel: Cortona
DL: we had purchased 4 day park hoppers and were planning on visiting DL Thursday, one weekend night after the expo, Monday and Tuesday

Now, why would someone want to go to this D23 expo?

...So why don't you just ruminate whilst I illuminate the possibilities...

The cosplays!



The celebrities!



The jaw dropping historical archives display!



The Disney royalty!



The sneak peek at coming parks attractions!



The amazing once in a lifetime Disney moments!


The lines!



What a minute, back up! Who comes to a place to have fun that has lines like this?!

Well, maybe I need to go all the way back to the beginning...

    I'm excited to follow along! It looks like an amazing experience but the lines are scaring me away.

    I am joining in. I can only see the Pirate picture and the new Star Wars Land picture. I am on a windows laptop.

    That is really odd, I applied the change to all the pictures.

    Sigh, looks like my trip report is turning into a tech issue tutorial/annoyance.

    OK, hopefully everyone can see the pics now. I've been having a very frustrating day at work so I really hope so :(

    Then tonight or tomorrow I can post the next installment.
