Here in Orange County, we have a special kind of local personality: the Disney superfan. We're not talking about folks that spend a few days a year traipsing around the Magic Kingdom—we mean the $669 Premium Annual Passport holders with Fantasia tattoos who frequent Disneyland so often they know where in the park Minnie Mouse is going to be hugging children at 3 p.m. on Wednesday. These are the people for which the D23 expo is held. Featuring rare Disney footage, exclusive exhibits, meet-and-greets with voice actors, Mary Poppins 50th anniversary events and a sneak peek at the upcoming Toy Story of Terror TV special, the D23 convention quenches that insatiable “more-more-more-Mickey” addiction—but we're not judging. Because we'll be there, too.
