Disney Announces July Date For D23 Expo 2017

The 2017 D23 Expo will kick off July 14 in Anaheim, California, leading some to already speculate whether Disney is poised to take on Comic-Con International.

Although Comic-Con has yet to announce dates for 2017, the convention is always held in mid- to late July in San Diego. Disney’s first D23 Expo, in 2011, was held in September, but all of those since then have taken place in August.

Set for July 14-16 at the Anaheim Convention Center, the biennial Disney fan event brings together the media giant’s theme park, music, gaming, television and movie properties — including “Star Wars,” Pixar and Marvel — under one roof.

The 2017 expo (the fifth) will include the Disney Legends Ceremony, honoring those who have made significant contributions to the Disney legacy; a new exhibit curated by the Walt Disney Archives; and the “Mousequerade” costume contest.

Advance tickets for D23 Expo 2017 will go on sale July 14, 2016, at
