Destination D23 Returns to Walt Disney World Resort

Destination D23 is returning this year, and Disney has officially announced the dates and location for the highly-anticipated event.

After the incredible success of the D23 Expo earlier this year in Anaheim, Southern California, Disney fans have more to celebrate and look forward to yet again. It looks like Disney’s pulling out all the stops to celebrate its 100th anniversary. As part of the company’s 100 Years of Wonder celebration, the “biggest Disney fan event” — D23 — returns to “The Most Magical Place on Earth” in 2023. D23 will celebrate Disney fans from coast to coast to honor the company’s 100th anniversary.
