D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event will come to Anaheim, California from August 9 to 11, 2024.

Next year's one-of-a-kind experience will have shows, new venues and multiple days of entertainment that brings together the wonderful world of Disney - including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and much, much more.

The D23 kickoff celebration will take place at Disneyland Resort on August 8 followed by shopping, exhibits, panels, presentations, and more on August 9 – 11 at the Anaheim Convention Center during the day, extending into the evening at the Honda Center—the bigger home to marquee shows.

In addition, there will also be a special D23 Day at Angel Stadium, where D23 fans are invited to attend the Los Angeles Angels vs. New York Mets game on August 4.

Tickets for D23 will go on sale in Spring 2024, with ticketing options to be announced later for access to the Anaheim Convention Center and the Honda Center. Admission for D23 Day at Angel Stadium and the D23 kickoff celebration at Disneyland Resort will be available as separate ticketed events.

Additional details for D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event will be announced in early 2024.

I'm glad I don't go for the big panels as that transportation between venues is a hot mess waiting to happen. :( Think it's a terrible logistical idea. But in the multiple times they've had the Expo, they've yet to figure out how to organize it well.

I didn't see anything that says the Honda Center events will need a separate ticket, unless you are taking about "registering" for them just like one had to do for any of the Expo panels and presentations. Your D23 ticket/pass (and the Disneyland kickoff, which was specifically mentioned as an add-on) should be the only "ticket" you'll have to buy. Yes, the transportation to the HC will be quite a challenge for them... in prior years, they have always seemed surprised when crowds for the regular Expo manifest outside the convention center; if I had a buck for every time I saw Expo staff hastily laying down masking tape to mark queues... it's going to take a while to get 15-18,000 people into buses and then the arena itself. If I'm there I can see Ubering the two miles to the HC just to avoid the inevitable lines and delays for the buses.

Doesn’t Spring seem kinda late to be selling badges for this? I thought they normally go up in January. I am planning to hopefully attend my first D23 next year.

This is the only announcement I was waiting for this weekend! I'm so excited! It's interesting that they're moving some events to the Honda center. Hopefully it will help alleviate lines and crowds in the convention center, but the two venues are so far apart, going back and forth will be be a pain. I'm sure they'll have shuttles running back and forth, but it will still be a hassle. I'm curious to see how that goes. From what I'm reading, it sounds like the events at the Honda center will be part of the Expo admission price, but the Baseball game and the Disneyland trip will be separate ticked events.

The transportation/logistics has me intrigued/curious too Like, it isn't walking distance - will they have shuttles or something or will it be viewed more like separate things and you can do both but on you to get b/w them?

So to clarify you will have to buy a D23 Ticket to get into the convention, then a separate ticket to get into the Honda Center and another ticket to get into the Disneyland Kickoff event. I am curious about the transportation to and from the Honda Center.

I snap booked a hotel / DVC and didn't even bother to read the event details. Moving the *presumably* three big panels to the Honda Centre is super smart and long ago needed. I think it's incredibly difficult to roll the dice on this event and just hope you can win the lottery to get into the panels. It has worked out well for me personally twice, but that also feels like blind luck. This basically guarantees nosebleed seats if you want to go, which makes the whole event a bit more recommendable.
