Disney D23 Expo Tips:
This will be my fourth D23 Expo. Each time the event unfolds slightly differently but here are some take away tips from the first three that may help you with this years if you are planning to attend.

  • Do NOT plan on seeing everything. There is just too much and many presentations/sessions are scheduled with overlapping times. Identify your must sees and then your tolerance level for waiting to get in. Do not expect to just show up and walk into a presentation. Most are at capacity and have queues that involve sitting for hours. Have a backup plan for each too.
  • Bring patience and flexibility. Panels start late, run late, things happen, lines are longer than you thought, something of interest catches your eye and throws off your plans. Be prepared for the unexpected schedule wise
  • Take advantage of the StagePass to save some time in line. This is a FastPass type system which will help you to know if you will have a spot and minimize your wait time for many of the sessions.
  • Be sure to leave time to explore the Floor. There are usually some great booths and exhibits throughout.
  • Remember to leave time to eat… the first Expo I made this mistake and it makes for a miserable experience. Be sure to each lunch and possibly even dinner to ensure you are in good shape for events
  • When in line visit with your fellow disneygeeks. You all have a similar interest since you are investing your time and money to visit and wait in line and it sure helps the time go faster
