D23 Expo 2017 is just a month away and it’s bringing with it “A Galaxy of Stories”
Showcasing the creative process of bringing new Disney park experiences to life, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts invites guests to discover its D23 Expo 2017 pavilion, “A Galaxy of Stories.” “A Galaxy of Stories” will be accessible through the Expo July 14–16 at the Anaheim Convention Center and will offer guests an exclusive look at the new Star Wars-themed lands currently under development for Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at this year’s pavilion. Guests to the pavilion will also hear personal stories of cast members and Imagineers working to create transformational experiences every day at Disney Parks.
Showcasing models, artwork, and media, “A Galaxy of Stories” will provide a first-ever look at some of the locations, starships, creatures, and droids that will bring Star Wars to life at the new themed lands, which are set to debut in 2019. For the first time, guests will be able to view a fully detailed model of the overall vision for this new experience that was once “far, far away,” but is now very, very near!
D23 Expo guests will once again have the chance to explore Mickey’s of Glendale, an Imagineering-exclusive merchandise store, to shop for unique souvenirs, specialty pins, limited-edition collectibles, and merchandise not available anywhere else.
In addition to the previously-announced Hall D23 presentation of what’s new and next with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek, which will take place Saturday, July 15, at 3 p.m., D23 Expo guests also will be able to attend three unique panel presentations:
