Coming to You Live from the D23 Expo!

You guys may have noticed that I have written a few Disney posts in the past, so it may not be too surprising that I’m headed to the D23 Expo in Anaheim this weekend. D23, in case you’re not a diehard, is the Disney-sanctioned fan community. D = Disney and 23 = 1923, the year the company was founded.

At the inaugural event in 2009, Disney announced the huge Fantasyland overhaul, gave sneak peeks of upcoming movies, and even snuck in a surprise appearance from Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. I’m really hoping they find a reason for him to show up this year as well, but with the news that the Lone Ranger may be canceled, I’m not holding my breath.

Anyway, I’ll be posting recaps of each day’s events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I know some of you may not be fans of the mouse himself, but the Expo is more than just updates on Mickey’s latest happenings - we’re also looking forward to a presentation by Marvel and an appearance from the Muppets, among other things.

You can also follow me on Twitter for more up-to-the-minute posts and pics, but I do want to warn you that if Johnny Depp does make an appearance, I may type unintelligible things for a while.

Are any other _flossers going to be there?
