Reliving the days of D23 from 2009

With this years D23 Expo just 3 days away, I thought it might be fun to look back at the first D23 Expo that took place back in September 2009.

Below you will find several pictures from each of 5 pages I used to cover the 2009 D23 Expo.

First off we will start with D23 Expo's Walt Disney Parks and Resort Pavilion.
Inside you will find:
• Cars Land model that is being built for Disney California Adventure
• Models and concept drawings for Hong Kong Disneyland's three new expansion lands

Next up is the "Making of World of Color".  See what it took to make Disney California Adventure's nighttime water spectacular come to life.

For D23's Evolution of a Classic - Remaking "it's a small world" for the 21st century, follow Kim Irvine and Tony Baxter as they talk about the beginnings of "it's a small world" from Walt Disney and Mary Blair days to the present day with Hong Kong Disneyland's and Disneyland's attraction which now includes many Disney Characters inside

I hope you enjoyed taking a little tour down memory lane. :)
I can't wait for the next D23Expo!

Until next time...
