Welcome to the D23 Expo!

On behalf of everyone at The Walt Disney

Company, thank you for joining us
to celebrate the magic, wonder and
adventure of Disney through this new
and exciting four-day gathering that
was created especially for you, our
most devoted fans.

For the first time since the magic of Disney

began in 1923, we are pleased to share
with you the best and brightest of our
remarkable past, present and future — all
under one roof — in an event that is literally
86 years in the making! You’ll revel in the
nostalgia of your favorite Disney memories
at the Treasures of the Walt Disney
Archives exhibit, be the first to see Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in
3D during Sunday’s U.S. premiere event and go behind closed
doors at Walt Disney Imagineering to gain unprecedented access
to the secrets that will define the future of Disney theme park
entertainment and experiences. And that doesn’t even scratch
the surface!

Whether you’re a fan of Disney’s theme parks, animation,

television shows, movies, books or collectibles or just can’t
get enough of it all, you’ll discover that there is truly something
for everyone as you wander the pavilions, screening rooms,
exhibition halls, seminars and presentations that await you here
at the Anaheim Convention Center.

We hope you enjoy the D23 Expo — the ultimate Disney fan

Walt Disney Parks AND Resorts Pavilion

Location: Hall B

It’s hard to imagine that there ever was a time

when there was no Disneyland or Walt Disney
World. But there was. And at the amazing
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Pavilion,
you can go back in time to 1954, when
Disney’s fabled Parks story began with
an ABC television series in which Walt
offered a preview of Disneyland nine
months before the park opened. Since
then, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts
has grown to include 11 parks and five
resorts around the world, as well as va-
cation experiences such as Disney Cruise
Line, Adventures by Disney and Disney Vaca-
tion Club. At our exciting and magical Pavilion, you can explore the rich legacy of Walt
Disney Parks and Resorts through a series of stunning displays and presentations, which
include never-before-seen models of classic Disney attractions and the chance to get
up close and personal with a couple incredibly real looking characters!

And that’s just the beginning!

Get a sneak preview of Cars Land — coming to

Disney’s California Adventure in 2012.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts works tirelessly to create the action-packed adven-
tures of the future — and as an Expo attendee, you’re invited to take a peek at what’s
to come! Wait ‘til you see the truly awesome Cars Land rock-work model — a soaring
gorgeous feat of imagination that typifies the ambition and scope of Disney’s California
Adventure’s current expansion (Psst! It’s so big, it won’t fit inside the Blue Sky Cellar!).

You’ll also preview the most advanced Audio-Animatronics® figures ever created —
Lucky the Dinosaur and WALL·E — and see firsthand the cutting-edge effects tech-
nologies currently in development for Disney attractions, shows and venues.

If you’re planning your next great Disney vacation experience, you’ll want to check
out the just-announced 2011 itineraries for Disney Cruise Line and take an inside look
at the planned expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland, which features three vast new
lands. At the Disney Vacation Club booth, you won’t want to miss the latest updates at
the under-construction Ko Olina Resort in Hawaii.

And on Saturday, September 12 at 11 a.m. in the Anaheim Convention Center D23

Arena, get the inside scoop on exciting new developments straight from Walt Disney
Parks and Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo. Jay will share behind-the-magic details and
pull back the curtain on several new projects — including concepts, models and plans
Meet Lucky the Dinosaur at the Walt for the 12-acre Cars Land that’s set to open at Disney’s California Adventure in 2012.
