  • I second Adam’s question; D23 discounted park tickets available this year?

  • PLEASE do a better job with the queues this year! That’s all I ask of you.

  • Would be great to see the open and closing hours of the Expo, along with a complete schedule. Also I heard D23 has had park discounts in the past. Is that happening this year? I’ve emailed in trying to get information but no reply.

  • I’m so excited!

  • Exciting times! 🙂
