I recently attended the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. It was pure chaos but so much fun. This was my first time attending and so I didn’t know what to expect really. I did, however, watch a couple of videos and read a few “things to know before you go” blog posts prior to attending, but you really don’t know what to expect unless you go and experience it for yourself.

Here are some recommendations for where to eat, what to see and things to do while at Downtown Disney.
