D23 is the official fan club for The Walt Disney Co. The group was founded in 2009 with Bob Iger unveiling it at the company’s annual meeting. It’s best known for its exposition event, the D23 Expo. Membership includes discounts and early access to the convention.

 

The first D23 Expo was held at the Anaheim Convention Center with pavilions from Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Consumer Products. It showed off an expansion of Fantasyland, an extensive re-hauling of Star Tours for Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a fourth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and appearances by John Travolta, Nicolas Cage, Patricia Heaton, Kelsey Grammer, Tim Burton, Selena Gomez, Robin Williams, Johnny Depp (as Captain Jack Sparrow), as well as live performances by Miley Cyrus and The Muppets.
