Dishney: D23 Full Schedule Revealed!

Dishney: D23 Full Schedule Revealed!

How much do you like Disney? Annual Passport holder? Fine. But are you dedicated? Or rather: Are you 23? Like we discussed previously, the first ever d23 Expo is coming to town September 10-13. It's four whole days dedicated to all things Disneyana at the Anaheim Convention Center. The schedule for the event has recently been announced and even for an admitted closet Disney fanatic, it seems pretty promising.

Thursday's highlights brings us speaker and CEO of the Walt Disney Company Bob Iger and a behind-the-scenes look at the Haunted Mansion. Friday offers a Disney rarities presentation, a screening of hardly-seen animations, and something on the making of Toy Story. Saturday? A screening of The Princess and the Frog and something called "So You Want to Be an Imagineer?" (answer: yes). Sunday has a special Muppets presentation and the an appearance by the cast of Wizards of Waverly Place (Music Editor Albert Ching is particularly excited for this one.)

We'll be there, of course, camera in tow and Twitter cell phone app ready to go. After the jump: Event details and a full schedule for D23.
