d23 expo 


By Bill Kallay

Disney put on its second huge Disney fan convention, D23 Expo, at the Anaheim Convention Center. D23 is Disney's answer to Comic-Con, a one stop shop to experience the magic that makes the Mouse company run. Disney skipped a year to figure out if it was viable to repeat the convention. It seems that this time around, the expo was even more popular than the first one in 2009.

D23 ran from August 19-21, 2011.

The convention had a huge number of events and conferences. Since there was so much to see and do, below is a compilation of the main highlights in a photo gallery. This will give you an idea of what Disney has in store for fans now and in the future.
