If you’re hoping to attend this year’s “D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event” to learn about upcoming Disney changes, hear shocking announcements, and view exclusive exhibits, you’ll want to mark your calendar and set your alarm!

Disney’s “D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event” (previously called the D23 Expo) will take place from August 9th through the 11th, 2024. Tickets for this super-popular event go on sale on March 26th, and we’re expecting those tickets to sell out FAST.


Disney hasn’t made any announcements about pre-sales yet, but it’s possible that some guests (like D23 Gold Members) will be able to buy those tickets earlier than others. We’ll be on the lookout for an announcement!

Hoping to snag some tickets? Make sure you bookmark the D23 Ultimate Disney Fan Event website and have several alarms set so you don’t forget! Be ready on March 26th to hit “add to cart” on those tickets as fast as you can.

Details about D23 Expo in 2024

So what exactly IS the Ultimate Disney Fan Event? That’s the new name for the D23 Expo. At this event, Disney fans get to listen to panels of Disney experts, hear presentations from leaders at The Walt Disney Company, shop exclusive merchandise, and view exhibits all about Disney.


Disney has dropped some HUGE news bombs at these events in the past. For example, in 2022, we found out about the huge Magic Kingdom expansion that Disney is currently planning.

The event takes place from August 9th through the 11th in Anaheim, California. There will be a D23 kickoff celebration at Disneyland Resort the day before (August 8th), and then the event itself will be located at the Anaheim Convention Center. However, in the evening, the marquee shows that are part of this event will take place in the Honda Center, which is an indoor arena.

Even if you don’t have plans to visit the event in person, you can still participate this year! Some parts of the D23 event will be streamed on Disney+, including the Disney Legends ceremony, according to Deadline. You may remember that last year, Disney streamed portions of Destination D23 on social media, so this is a change for 2024. Disney also announced that this year’s D23 event will have a new interactive app, as well as musical performances, an amazing shopping experience, and special presentations. We can’t wait to learn more.
