There has been a TON of news released recently about the 2019 D23 Expo. We’ve learned that National Geographic will be part of this year’s Expo, and we’ve discovered who the Disney Legend honorees will be.
The Expo’s August 23rd start date is quickly approaching, and now Disney has released even MORE details!
At each year’s Expo, Disney typically releases new information on what’s coming to the theme parks around the world. And today, Disney has announced their plans to do this once again with their Imagining Tomorrow, Today pavilion. This will give fans a look into Epcot’s transformation, what’s coming to Magic Kingdom, and details about the upcoming Marvel experiences coming to Hong Kong, Paris, and Disneyland Resort.
Bob Chapek, the chairman of Disney Parks, will hold a presentation on Experiences and Products, which will take place in Hall D23 on August 25th at 10:30 AM.
