If you're expecting surprises... your bar is set too high.

How successful has Disney been in snuffing out leaks?

It's pretty typical for any convention I've ever attended for shopping to be a big part of the experience or even the main reason to go. See: San Diego Comic-Con, NY Comic-Con, Emerald City Comic-Con, Dragon Con, etc. This is not a Bob thing. It's a con thing. Collectors gonna collect. lol

D23 has always had multiple merchandise locations (Expo store, Disney Store, WDI store, DSSH store, publishing area to shop for books, plus a secondary vendors area). Shopping is a primary reason for many people to go.

Wasn’t that always there case?

Ehh that rumor smelled fake from the beginning. It was just a fan making speculation. I was wondering if a reliable source has said if we should expect any meat (are Lee and Martin still around?) I’m personally thinking the surprise announcements could be that the spaceship earth refurb is now going to move forward maybe that Mary popping thing as well but that’s about it. Not sure if that avengers e-ticket is still going to happen for California Adventure

Details a bit fuzzy, but sounds like panels this year will be a "Random Selection Process" in terms of StagePasses. Basically every badge will have a lottery. That's a bit more uniform as it was sort of an all or none process. You either got through the virtual queue fast and could reserve for every day your desired StagePasses, or you missed out on them all essentially.

So D23 will now have a huge merchandise shop. 🤦‍♂️ So Bob.

that would really bother me if that pad went to a hotel and not an attraction, when its a main prime real estate magic kingdom expansion pad left. See what they are building now across the lagoon? do we want another one of these downtown looking office building hotels looming over the park like they are jamming in at the polynesian (destroying beautiful grounds in the process I might add but they don't care) its just mind boggling to me that they keep building hotels when the parks cant handle the crowds as it is. Im just talking out loud really not directed at you wdw pro.

This also brings up if they'd keep Astro Blasters or retheme it..No reason for 2 Lightyear attractions in two spots in one land..
