    We do have a pretty long D23 Expo thread going on the DL forum as well. Just in case anyone wants to visit that one.

    Yes I saw that and added some info from there here. I basically wanted to use this as the place for news to be posted that comes from the expo.

    Just an FYI that the Disneyland DIS team did a podcast covering the event this past Sunday - gave a good overview of the event, shared some of their experiences from past events, and gave some tips and tricks. Also mentioned they will likely organize some sort of meet-up either before or during the event

    I am sure this was posted in the Disneyland thread, but thought I would mention it here as well - just finished listening to it and I enjoyed it and it made me want to attend even more (can't this year, but thinking about trying to make 2019 work)
