Thousands of Disney fans converged this weekend to celebrate the 2015 D23 Expo. D23: The Official Disney Fan Club held its biennial D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center. Disney legends were honored, sneak previews were unveiled—teasing fans with upcoming movie news, gaming, and exclusive announcements about major park and resort expansions worldwide.
Making this year’s event extra-special was the fact that the convention is being held during the Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration, which marks the resort’s 60th anniversary. The Walt Disney Archives provided a dazzling collection of vintage props, artifacts, and costumes that dated back to the park’s 1955 beginnings.
However in the midst of major announcements across all of Disney’s extensive brands, there was a special magic that reminded us all what it means to love Disney. We’re of course talking about the reason the expo exists in the first place: the fans.
Hundreds of dedicated fans spent countless hours putting together creative, detailed cosplays of their favorite Disney characters. Some cosplayers went for complete accuracy to the original characters, while others added their own unique spin on the classics.
Some fans even dressed up in the style of their favorite Disneyland ride!
