Legendary animator and businessman Walt Disney first founded Walt Disney Studios in Southern California in 1923 and pioneered the theme park industry in 1955, when he opened Disneyland® Park, in Anaheim. So it seems fitting that D23 Expo will debut in Anaheim this September.
"The upcoming D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center will serve as an exciting opportunity to present Anaheim to the millions of Disney enthusiasts around the world," said Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle. "For the thousands of inaugural-year D23 Expo attendees who will visit our city in September, this will be a special and memorable time in the birthplace of Walt Disney's original theme park. It is a great honor for Anaheim and the Anaheim Convention Center to host this event."
Thousands of people are expected to visit Anaheim and Orange County during this inaugural event and the economic impact will be felt throughout the region.
"The D23 Expo promises to be the ultimate gathering for Disney enthusiasts and it is only fitting that it should happen here in Anaheim, home of the original Disney theme park," said Ed Grier, president of Disneyland Resort. "We look forward to welcoming tens of thousands of fans and families from all over the world as they gather in Anaheim for this inaugural event."
