For those who have attended D23 before, are there artists selling items similar to how there is at SDCC, etc?
SDCC 2011 - 2019
WonderCon 2017 - 2019
{and other smaller cons}

If you're talking about a dedicated Artist's Alley or Small press area, no D23 doesn't quite have what SDCC does.  Usually they'll have artwork I think in the Dream Store (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) and times throughout the expo where the artists will be there to sign and talk about their work.

There will be a few art vendors on the show floor, I remember Cyclops Print Works being there last time.  But off the top of my head I don't remember too many booths being run by solo artists.

Outside of that, they will have certain artists signing in talent central and if you're into the music of Disney they'll have people signing in the Disney Music Emporium as well.

so it turns out i may be able to attend d23 on thursday the 23rd. I need to be in Vegas on the 24th.

it would cost the thursday tix and a hotel room.... so it's not wicked cheap. my question for group think is... what can i expect on the thrusday ? I'm not so much into exclusives, pins etc.

I'm also toying with the idea of Disney on the 22 or 23rd... if anyone else is thinking of going

You want to possibly go to D23 AND Disneyland on the same day? I hope I read that wrong.

The 22nd is going to be busy. That whole week will. I highly do not recommend going at that time, IF you can help it.

i'm thinking of going either the 22 or if i don't get tix to d23 on the 23rd/24th LOL
mostly i just want to pop in & get a hat. I'm an AP so it wouldn't be a 'doing the park' situation- just stopping by & maybe jumping in via single rider on a few rides.

Do you mean FRIDAY the 23rd?  Because Friday is the first day of the expo, not Thursday.

*sighs* If I could afford to go to D23, I totally would... I love Disney, ha ha. XD

For those of you attending this year, I will vicariously through you, so please tell us how the con went after it is over! ^__~  I'm sure other community members would enjoy reading about your experiences as well.

After the fiasco that was the Celebration app, I’m highly skeptical about all of this stuff with the D23 app going as planned.  I fully expect everything to crash when you can start registering for passes.
