On Saturday afternoon Disney Parks and Resorts was the featured presentation of the afternoon at the D23 Expo 2017. Bob Chapek was the primary speaker and he enlisted support from several Imagineers throughout. The presentation covered the Star Wars projects, Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary plans including Epcot, Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studio additions plus transportation, resort, Vacation Club and Cruise Line news. It closed with Disneyland. I have a four part series of first looks featuring cell phone pictures. Next week I will have a full picture set with the SLR pictures and video clips.
A look at some Disneyland changes in the near future to close out the presentation. Paint the Night will be at Disney California Adventure. The Pixar Play Parade is moving to Disneyland next year as well as a new Pixar Fireworks show at Disneyland.
Toy Story will be taking over Paradise Pier at the Disney California Adventure.
For Halloween the Cars will celebrate this year in Cars Land.
Baby Groot shared some Marvel plans… well as always he had a lot to say.
Fantasmic officially returns Monday. All those in attendance were given a chance to see the show at one of four previews this weekend.
