We brought you on-site cover of D23 Expo, which included news about Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and Alice Through The Looking Glass, amongst many others, bringing Disney fanboys and fangirls news of some of the Mouse House’s biggest announcements. The weekend rewarded thousands of eager attendees (and millions of those standing by online) for their patience with some incredible pieces of “breaking Disney news.”
Here are 10 of D23 Expo 2015’s best reveals (in order of “wow factor”).
For years we have awaited 2015, a period that would produce so much awesome entertainment unlike no other. With Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tomorrowland, Pixar’s Inside Out and Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the short-term horizon on the film side, Disneyland’s 60th on the theme park side, and a variety of exciting television/digital projects to debut, Disney continues to demonstrate its power in the media world.
Last week’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders revealed a few upcoming plans, complemented by a slew of headlines that have rocked the industry — and, most of all, rocked in a great way. Needless to say, there is likely no better time to be a Disney fan.

Let’s reflect on where and how Disney succeeded in 2014, as well as analyze components it could have improved.
“Hooray for Hollywood” was once the signature tune of the then-named Disney-MGM Studios. For the past seven years the park has existed under Disney’s Hollywood Studios label. After more than 25 years, the park’s original main attraction quickly closed.
The end of the Studio Backlot Tour mirrors the major changes irrefutably in store for the park in the near future. Let’s remember the attraction and imagine the possibilities in store for the park with this newly available space.
If you have the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World, you must know which rides and shows everyone queues up for at the start of the day. At Epcot, all race toward Soarin’ or Test Track.

But many attractions are often unfortunately overlooked, namely because many other spectacles distract guests’ attention.
The purpose behind this Disney In Depth is to honor the many shows, exhibits, films, and rides that may be forgotten in the mix of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World. Here are my 10 Most Overlooked Walt Disney World Attractions.
