D23 Expo 2019: What is D23?

D23 is “The Official Disney Fan Club” sponsored by the Walt Disney Company. D23 launched in 2009 and stands for Disney 1923. 1923 being the year Walt Disney arrived in California, founding the Walt Disney Company. Membership in the D23 fan club comes in three options: General (free), Gold and Gold Family. If you’re not a member yet, head over here to become a D23 member.

D23 Expo 2019: Planning Your Day

Planning your day at the D23 Expo is probably the most difficult part of the convention. Gold members get special perks like early entrance to the expo which can save you time and possibly get you into prime presentations. I used my Gold Member perks during the 2017 event here.

I suggest you pick a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice in case certain presentations reach capacity or you can’t make it there in time due to parking or other circumstances.  Remember to add time to the beginning of each presentation for waiting in line and be sure to add some time for shopping!

For lines, expect plenty of them. D23 Expo experts say to arrive by 4 am each morning if you want to get into the major Hall D23 morning panel. Many, many people stay overnight.

D23 Expo Lines
D23 Expo Lines

Overnight queueing is almost a rite of passage for the super-dedicated. You may still get a seat without lining up overnight but obviously the best seats go to those who arrive first. Thursday and Friday you can begin official line-up (I say official because informal lines may begin prior) at 10pm and will be escorted inside for overnight lines. No overnight lines for Sunday panels. Not into overnight queueing? Most people say be there by 4 am for the best seats. Certainly don’t arrive at opening or even an hour before, you may not make it inside in time for the panel.

Panel rooms are cleared out before each session. You cannot stay in for one presentation and stay in for the next. Many people do leave and hop into line right away, but there is no guarantee you’ll get back in.

If you want limited edition merchandise or premium seating, expect to spend lots of time in line. There’s just no way around it if you’re looking at the Hall D23 panels. Smaller panels may be less crowded.

D23 Expo 2019 On Display All Weekend

In addition to numerous panels and presentations, you can find shopping galore and these displays all weekend on the D23 Expo show floor. From 2017 we saw:

  • “Galaxy of Stories” at the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts pavilion with an exclusive first-look at the fully detailed model of the overall vision of the new Star Wars land coming to Disneyland in 2019 including some of the locations, starships, creatures, and droids we plan to find there.
  • “Mickey’s of Glendale”  returns with imagineering-exclusive merchandise like specialty pins, limited-edition collectibles, and merchandise you can’t find anywhere else (expect of course on eBay at crazy high prices after the expo).
  • “Disney Music Emporium” features products and album signings including composer Michael Giacchino, composer Tyler Bates, Auli’i Cravalho, Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, and Lorelay Bove, plus Hollywood Records artists Jordan Fisher and Temecula Road. With the purchase of select music products at the Disney Music Emporium Pavilion, guests will be issued a wristband to secure a space for an album signing.

D23 Expo 2019 Walt Disney Archives

A full schedule of panels all weekend from the Disney Archives Stage.

D23 Expo 2019 Schedule Friday

In 2017, this is what we saw on Friday’s schedule. I expect a similar schedule for main panels like Legends and Animation to be on Friday in 2019:

  • Carla

    Hi there! With D23 soon underway, I’m trying to prepare the most I can for the big weekend! It will be my first time going, so I have a question about overnight line waiting, as I plan to do so at least one of the nights. What does everyone do with their sleeping bags and things once the line starts moving? Does it get carried for the rest of time while in the center? I’m waiting for the Disney Store and I’d rather not have to carry all of my things. My plan is to run back to my hotel after the store and come back, to make sure my things are safe. Any suggestions or thoughts?

    • So exciting! What happens for people sleeping over night- as it gets closer they’ll release rules on what sleeping stuff you can bring in and at what time, etc. Then at like 6 or 5 am, can’t remember exactly when…they will tell everyone it’s time to go put their stuff away. You’ll have a wristband to get back in and everyone is very aware of their place in line. Everyone respects the line placement and you’re spot is secure. You put your stuff away and come back within an hour. Then wait some more for shopping to open. It’s very bright in there all night so bring ear plugs and eye mask. It’s also cold! Can’t wait to have more info as it gets closer.

  • Anonymous

    The infomation is really helpful.
    It my first time to join D23 2019. I am from HK, very excited and little bit scared, seem is it so many ppl.
    Which day do you think is better to go? The panels of both 3 day is Good for me! But because of the time, I can only join one day.

  • Aubria Abell

    I am considering going to the D23 expo 2019 due to something I read about the expo having information about the new Pixar film Onward. Has there been any confirmation or further information on that? Would it possibly be a panel specifically on the film or would it be simply talked about in another panel? Do they release a official schedule of what days things are happening before the event? If so when?

    • Hi Aubrey, if they do show some of that movie, it will likely be in the Pixar and Walt Disney Animations Studios 2:30 pm on Friday. That is officially confirmed, but you never know what they will announce until you’re there hearing it! 🙂

  • Erin

    I am going in 2019. I went in 2017 and was never able to get into the pin store. The line was so long and people waited all day in that line. I only collect pins for my personal collection. How can I make sure I get into that store this year?

    • Shoppers tend to do best if they spend the night at the convention center :(. However, keep a close watch on this and other D23 emails to see if anything has changed this for shopping access at the 2019 event.

  • Samantha

    Hi I have purchased three day gold member discounted tickets for the expo in 2019. We are all first timers. Both my husband and I have Spinal Cord Injuries that require wheelchairs for our mobility. Is there plenty of wheelchair seating or very little? Basically I was wondering if we might need to get there even earlier than the general public to get accessible seats for a panel. Unfortunately due to pressure sores and other medical things I might not be to manage camping out overnight. Just wondering.

    • Hi Samantha, I would definitely contact GuestRelations@D23.com for your specific circumstances but my understanding is your party needs to wait in the regular line and you join them when the time to go inside the panel arrives. There is limited space for wheelchairs in a specific area but it’s my understanding you still need to wait in the queue to secure that space. Will you update me with your findings?

  • Michael Smith


    As a first timer to D23 I’m thinking whether to buy a 3 day or 1 day pass as I’m coming from the UK I do want to spend some time in the parks

    Hope you can help!


    • Hi Michael, so glad you’re going and all the way from the UK! If I recall correctly, Saturday sold out first last time. SO, one school of thought would be to buy a Saturday only ticket and maybe add Friday later on if you find you can’t resist the offerings for that day. Another option is to decide which day interests you most panel-wise. Legends will be Friday and the outline for main panels should generally be the same as last time, which is listed in this article. Would love to bump into you so please keep in touch!

  • Emily from Houston :)

    Hi Jessica! Now thinking about D23 Expo 2019! 🙂 Do you know what TIME tickets will go on sale for the expo on August 23, 2018? I’m *considering* trying for Sorcerer tickets even though I realize it is big $$$. I’ve never been before and the lines are super intimidating! Thanks so much!

    • Hey Emily, so excited for D23 also! I don’t have any times yet but I will continue to update information here and on my Facebook page (@DisneylandPlan). It’s going to be so amazing, I just know it!

  • Lupe

    Hi Jessica. First, your website is very informative.

    This will be my 3rd time attending D23, however I’d like to finally attend the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony this year. We only have the free D23 membership so I’m not even sure what that gets you. However, if we were to spend the night and get there by 10pm Thursday night, do you think we can still get into the Legends Award Ceremony? I heard they let the Gold members in first, then general public (which I’m assuming is the line I’d have to stand in since I only got the free membership). I don’t want to spend all night in line, only to not make it in. That would be disappointing. :0(
    Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hey Lupe! Hope this gets to you in time and thanks for the compliments. I think it’s definitely safe to say you’ll get into Legends in the overnight queue. The way the Gold Membership thing works is sorta a two-step process. One: anyone wishing to quit overnight can arrive at 10pm Thursday night or even in the wee hours of the morning (the D23 expo app specifically says before 6am). Two: there are a limited number of priority seating for Gold Members (which I assume will be filled by those Gold Members queuing overnight). Once those GM priority seats are filled, it will be closed off and all GM must join the back of the general admission line. Does that make sense? Just because they can get in an hour earlier does not put them in front of you in line if you sleep over night. I hope that’s somewhat clear :).

  • Thanks for the great info! This is our first time attending the expo. Do you think its possible to attend the Live action Hall D23 panel in the morning and the DisneyParks panel in the afternoon on Saturday? We’d love to go to both, but not sure if it’s doable to get in. We don’t need the closest seats, just want to be in the auditorium 🙂

    • That’s a big debate among Expo go-ers. In years past many people were able to get into on Hall23 panel and rush back into line for the next (the room is cleared in between panels). However, many people expect this expo to be bigger than ever— for one it grows every year, for two there are many Comic Con visitors this year since the two events are so close together. Best bet? Have a back up plan just in case and try to leave live action a bit early (I imagine many will try this trick) to hop in line for parks before live action gets out. Best of luck and enjoy!

  • Mimi Coms

    Do you think there would be a good chance of making it into the Animation panel on Saturday, jumping from Legends?

    I’m not sure about the risk of not making it into the Animation panel.

    Thank you.

    • Hey Mimi, thanks for being patient. I am down at the Disneyland Resort this week in prep for the expo so super busy, crazy fun here. That question is a huge debate among attendees. In years past it has happened. I would leave Legends early and cross your fingers to run to the back of the Animation panel line. Then have some back up ideas (there are plenty on the D23 Expo app!) just incase you miss Animation. So much to do, so little time! I hope you enjoy the expo either way!

  • Linda

    Hello, I’ll be attending d23 expo for my first time and debating on going for one or 2 days. We are not interested in the panels just walking around seeing the exhibits instead and some shopping. Is the expo big that we would need more than one day to finish?

    • Hi Linda, as of now only single day tickets for Friday and Sunday are available. The D23 Expo app was just released today. My best suggestion is to download the app to see all the offerings of panels, things to do, shopping, celebrity meet and greets and much more . . . from there you can better decide if you’ll need one or two days. It does certainly depend on what you’re interested in but my experience is you cannot see it all even over 3 days without going to any panels. Best of luck in your decision making and hope you have a great time!

      • Linda

        Thanks so much Jessica! I have one day passes for Sunday so I think I’ll get Friday passes as well that way we don’t have to rush. Our first time there and then our 1st time at Comic Con a few days later so we are a bit scared of the crowds however very excited!

  • Marguerite

    Hi. Thank you so much for your helpful information. I was wondering if you had any idea where we could park overnight if we wanted to line up overnight (and if you know if the would have handicapped parking overnight). Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

    • Hey Marguerite, thanks for getting in touch. You can park overnight at Anaheim Hilton for $16 a night. Also Anaheim GardenWalk allows overnight parking for $24. The Hilton is a lot closer, but you could always Uber or ART over to the convention center from the GardenWalk if needed. Both places will have handicapped parking as mandated by law. Please say hi if you happen to see me amongst the masses!

  • Jamie

    I thought I left a comment last night but it looks like it may not have posted…

    Your blog is the best, clearest first-hand info I’ve found in my research, so thanks for that! I have a couple (tons of) questions:
    -I’ve been to SDCC a number of times. There, once you’re in a panel room, you can stay as a long as you want. Do they clear the rooms between panels or employ SDCC’s method?
    -Can you expand on what lines are really like? Where are they located (indoor/outdoor)? How early are you allowed to queue up? Are there different lines for difference rooms?

    I may have more questions, but let’s start with those. Thank you!

    • Jamie

      Addendum: I think some of my questions may be covered on the D23 website but I’d love to hear from someone who’s actually experienced it.

    • Jamie, thanks so much for the compliment and questions. I’ll answer here and update the post because it’s about time I do that!

      1. Panel rooms are cleared out before each session. You cannot stay in for one presentation and stay in for the next. Many people do leave and hop into line right away, but there is no guarantee you’ll get back in. 2. You’re right, these items are covered on D23 but I’ll answer here as well. Overnight queueing is almost a rite of passage for the super-dedicated. You may still get a seat without lining up overnight but obviously the best seats go to those who arrive first. Thursday and Friday you can begin official line-up (I say official because informal lines may begin prior) at 10pm and will be escorted inside for overnight lines. No overnight lines for Sunday panels. Not into overnight queueing? Most people say be there by 4 am for the best seats. Certainly don’t arrive at opening or even an hour before, you may not make it inside in time for the panel.

      If you want limited edition merchandise or premium seating, expect to spend lots of time in line. There’s just no way around it if you’re looking at the Hall D23 panels. Smaller panels may be less crowded. Many people are saying to expect larger crowds this year due to many SDCC guests coming to this one as well since the dates are back to back. Also, check out the Facebook group D23 Expo 2017. I’ve loved all the discussion and helpful advice there.

      • Jamie

        Thanks for the response! Super helpful! I’ll definitely check out that group, thanks for the tip(s)! Sorry, I’m one of those SDCC interlopers 😉 I’ve always wanted to go to D23 and since I’m out there for Comic Con anyway, seemed like the perfect year to drop the dough and give it a go.

        A follow-up: Are there separate lines for separate panels being held in the same room? I wouldn’t want to wait in line only to be ushered into the room for the wrong panel. Like, let’s say I want to see the Animation Studios Upcoming Films and not the Disney Legends Awards but I know I need to be in line super early regardless…

        Another question: I saw on the D23 FAQ’s that there’s no holding spaces for people in line. Is that enforced by any “line security”? Or is it just referring to once the line starts moving inside, someone can’t hop in at that point. If I were to say get in line at 10pm and someone (one person) joined me at, as an example, 7am, would he be turned away/would I get dirty looks from fellow attendees?

        • That’s awesome Jamie! We’re happy to have the Comic Con crew. Many people go to both! Yes, definitely separate lines. Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish. You just need to keep asking people what line they’re in to make sure you hop in the right one. Last time that was pretty messy but hopefully the event staff has learned to better handle the official and unofficial lines that form.

          There’s definitely no holding space, especially for that long. People waiting around you will make sure that doesn’t happen. On top of that, they will hand out wrist bands at some random point overnight (maybe during daytime panels too) and I’ve heard of people leaving to put something in the car, get food, etc. and they will not give an extra wrist band. If you’re not there, you don’t get in. If that person arrived at 7 or even 5, they probably wouldn’t even be able to make their way to you. So much info to digest. Please look out for me there and say hello if you happen to see me in the masses! It will be a great time.

          • Jamie

            Great, this definitely gives me an idea of how to plan the days.

            And thanks! I will! I’ll be easy to spot cause I’ll have a puppet on my hand 🙂

  • Geatina

    Hi! I was just wondering if anyone received their D23 tickets in the mail yet. I purchased my tickets July 2016 and I still haven’t received anything. Should I be worried? Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Violetta! Disney fans means serious business. If you’re hoping to get into the most popular panels and do some shopping, plan to spend most of your time in line. Many people sleep over night and I’ve heard arriving at 5 am for a 10 am panel is definitely too late! Crazy stuff. Please say hello if you see me there!

  • Fuskie

    The discounted tickets for D23 Expo attendees went on sale today. If you are already registered for the Expo, check your inbox for the link to purchase your Twilight, 1 Day, 2 Day, 3 Day or 4 Day tickets. Both single park and park hopper options are available.

    • I had an email months ago with the option to buy discount tickets. I think it just depends on when you buy your D23 tickets, but if it’s taking a while to get your email about tickets you can always email their customer service as one reader did and was promptly helped.

  • Liz

    Hi there. Do you know when the discounted park tickets go on sale? I purchased my Expo tickets a week or two ago and it says stayed tuned on my email and so have the other websites I’ve visited. Want to make sure we get the best deal on tix.

  • Fuskie

    FYI, single day Saturday tickets are sold out as of 5/15/17. 3 day and single day Friday and Sunday are still available.

    • Thanks for keeping an eye out on those for us! You’re right, as we get closer more days will sell out. As you mentioned, you can now only buy single days for Friday and Sunday. If you want to go to Saturday, you’ll need to buy a 3 day pass. Thanks so much!

  • Tanya

    Hi there. I love your blog! Curious if you know anything about ordering hotel and tickets via “Be our guest?” I have been working with a travel agent. I received a quote for The Maingate Residence Inn and a 5 day hopper pass for 6 of us. Will they truly give us the best deal? When I experimented online and attempted to book right on Residence Inns site and went to buy 5 day passes it seemed to substantially cheaper for me just do it on own. Please any knowledge would be much appreciated! Best, Tanya

  • Do you know if Twilight tickets are something that is available all year round? I tried to look for them this past January on their website when I was in the area and asked some friends…they all said you can’t get those anymore. So are the Twilight tickets just special for July?

    • Hi Stacie, great question. These tickets are only for D23 Expo attendees and you’re right, Twilight Tickets are only offered during this event and can only be used the week before and after the expo. The only other times when Disneyland offers something somewhat similar is during Mickey’s Halloween Party and other separate ticket events. For example, during Mickey’s Halloween Party the park closes to regular guests at about 7pm and only Halloween Party ticket-holders are admitted. Ticket prices for that varies but has been around $80 in the past. Thanks for asking, I will update the post to reflect the info regarding D23 Expo as I’m sure others have had the same question.
