Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives at D23 Expo

One of the many highlights to visiting the D23 Expo is a visit to the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives.  Last time in 2009, there were costumes from Mary Poppins, Captain Eo and Enchanted, to name a few.  This year the archive display was more than twice as big with even more artifacts from over the years.  Here are some recognizable items from the display.

Mater's Junkyard Jamboree at DCA from D23 Expo

At the D23 Expo, inside the Carousel of Projects, was a full size vehicle from the upcoming ride in Cars Land, set to open next year.  Mater's Junkyard Jamboree is a "whip-style" ride that should be accessible to kids of all ages.  The Expo also gave previews of upcoming additions to Walt Disney World and Shanghai Disneyland.

D23 Expo is here!

c Disney

In just a few hours, hundreds of Disney fans from all over the world will converge on the Anaheim Convention Center for the D23 Expo - The Ultimate Disney Event for Fans.  Daytrippingmom Media will be there to cover all things big and small, especially the models and information on the additions to California Adventure.

We were able to attend in 2009 and had a fantastic time and are looking forward to all the surprises that this weekend holds.  The Expo is kid friendly and there is even a Baby Care Center, similar to those found in the parks, available.  Tickets are available at the door.  You DO NOT have to be a D23 member to come to the Expo (but why aren't you?).

We'll see you there!
