Calling all Disney fans! The biggest Disney fan event of the year is almost here! Destination D23 is presented by Lug for the official Disney fan club to celebrate 100 years of Disney. “Journey through every era of Disney as we venture back through the last century of storytelling and look forward to a limitless future for the company and its most dedicated fans,” D23 writes.

The event is planned to take place at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World. Destination D23 begins on Friday, September 8 to Sunday, September 10. Fans attending can enjoy “beloved moments and memories with behind-the-scenes stories, and special guests and performances.” Additionally, it wouldn’t be a Disney celebration without sneak peeks on what’s to come, exclusive opportunities, and plenty of surprises!
