The D23 Expo at the Anahiem Convention Center, held Aug. 19-21 was bigger and better than ever this year, featuring new merchandise and opportunities to meet popular Disney artists. There were plenty of surprises, too. One of the biggest came when Tom Staggs, chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, announced that the boundaries of Fantasyland at Disneyland Park will be expanded with a new experience called Fantasy Faire.
The project will transform Carnation Plaza Gardens Stage into a storybook village where Guests will be immersed into the stories of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Beauty and the Beast," and "Tangled." Surrounded by fairytale cottages and pavilions, Guests will travel to the heart of the village square-Tangled Tower. The village will come alive with activities and entertainment, including a Royal Ribbon Parade where Guests can dance and interact with their favorite Disney princesses. And at night, the Fantasy Fairs Stage will feature the classic music and dancing offerings that Guests have loved for years.
