    I know this is mainly a theme park themed site, but with D23 Expo coming up in a month, do you have any tips you could possibly share for a first-timer like me?

    Hey there, Jason! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I'm actually so glad you brought us this question. I'm headed to D23 Expo next month with a few other of my planDisney pals and we are all first-timers too!

    It sounds like there are a lot of new processes and changes taking place at this year's expo, so alumni panelist, Amy H, shared that practicing patience and kindness will go a long way, and just enjoy the magic! I think that sounds like great advice when all of the information coming in can be quite overwhelming and it's going to be impossible to do and see it all.

    The most time-sensitive information would be the new reservation process for the panels that is live right now. This takes place now through Friday, August 19, 2022. You can make your selections for each stage, as well as talent and some show floor experiences. Random selections of reservations will be distributed starting September 2, 2022, via email.

    Another key tip would be to make sure you download the D23 Expo app, as well as the Disneyland app as well. The D23 Expo app has lots of great information and the schedule outline. The Disneyland app will be used to join virtual queues for some of the shopping locations at the expo. 

    I did see that outside food and drink are NOT permitted, so be sure to hydrate and find time to go refuel. 

    Last but not least, I just saw that D23's newest podcast episode talks a lot about the D23 Expo and what to expect. I have it queued up and ready to listen to later today. I'm sure we will continue to see a lot of information continuing to drip out now until expo week.

    Jordan, I hope this was helpful! I am so excited to attend D23 Expo and if you see a couple of planDisney panelists wandering around say hi!

Well hello friend! I'm Carrie, a work-from-home mama and military wife who currently calls sunny San Diego home.

You'll find us in the parks braving drops and coasters to work up our appetite to take as many snack breaks as we can fit in! I love helping my friends plan memorable trips to Disneyland Resort and can't wait to help you too! Learn More About Carrie
