@DCBaker - any language anywhere about tickets being transferable? I assume they would be now. But we might see a resale market.
Yes: Tickets can be transferred to other guests; however, the recipient email must be associated with a D23 Member account to claim the badge transferred to them.

Here are the terms for tickets:
  • D23 Members must log in by using their D23 Member account information when purchasing tickets.
  • D23 Gold or General Members may purchase up to eight (8) tickets for D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event.
  • Each attendee must have a ticket in their possession for entry.
  • D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event tickets are subject to availability.
  • All D23 events are subject to change without notice.
  • All guests under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to attend this D23 event and will require an event ticket for admission. All children 2 years of age and older must have a ticket for admittance.
  • Ticketed Members and guests who do not attend the event forfeit their place, as well as all experiences, benefits, and gifts associated with the event.No refunds are permitted for D23 tickets. All ticket sales are final. There are strictly no cancellations or refunds regardless of reason (including, without limitation, due to illness, change in travel plans, etc.). D23 is not responsible for lost, stolen, or forgotten badges.
  • Tickets can be transferred to other guests; however, the recipient email must be associated with a D23 Member account to claim the badge transferred to them.

    • Ask permission from another guest prior to filming or photographing them.
    • Badges, credentials, and other entitlements are non-exchangeable, non-refundable, revocable, and void if altered. The badge must be used by the same person on all days during its period of validity.

All ticket sales are final. There are strictly no cancellations or refunds regardless of reason (including, without limitation, due to illness, change in travel plans, etc.).

Updating this information as D23 has added more details on ticket transfers:

NOTE: Tickets purchased from any other sources may not be valid. D23 is not able to honor, replace or refund invalid tickets. D23 will provide an official opportunity to transfer tickets to other guests prior to the Event, however the recipient email must be associated with a valid D23 Member account to claim the transferred ticket.

When the ticket transfer process opens, D23 will be the only ticket service that is able to authenticate that a D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event ticket is valid. Other resellers may offer money-back guarantees, but they are unable to guarantee entry to the Event as they are not able to validate that a ticket or seat location is authentic.

We encourage guests to report fraudulent ticket sales to the point of purchase and consumer protection agencies.

It’s happening guys! Getting more and more real everyday. Shouldn’t be long till we get a schedule and panel reservations (if that even is still a thing).

EDIT: Was just about to post that email

Since I won’t have a car, I’m torn between either the D23 shuttle or the ART bus. There appears to be an ART bus stop right outside my hotel.

Some more info I dug up on the sit it’s worth noting the site got a minor influx of information. Nothing groundbreaking but maybe worth a look on finer details.

It is recommended that guests allow at least 90 minutes for travel time from the Anaheim Convention Center to the Honda Center.
Doors Open
Doors for the Honda Center will open two (2) hours prior to each presentation start time:
• Disney Entertainment Showcase: Friday, August 9, at 7 p.m. (doors at 5 p.m.)
• Disney Experiences Showcase: Saturday, August 10, at 7 p.m. (doors at 5 p.m.)
• Disney Legends Ceremony: Sunday, August 11, at 5 p.m. (doors at 3 p.m.)

Did they list the good neighbor hotels providing this service?
They did not. I am staying at the Clarion and there is an ART stop right by the hotel. It’s also not too far from the stop at the convention center’s grand plaza.

EDIT: I’m basing this off the map on the transports page.

We are 65 days out from the event. Looking at the historical data from the last expo a few things happened already that haven’t happened yet.

1.) Badge management opened around 80 days before the event
2.) Reserved Panel reservations opened around 80 days before the event
3.) Badges began shipping around 72 days before the event

Major milestones further out:

1.) 50 days before the app went live with what I assume is the schedule.
2.) 44 days before we got our first details on the Disney Parks panel.

They could be waiting to get all their Brazil tickets sold next week then start the trickle of information. It has to be coming soon though. Some of this information was derived from the D23 Reddit.

This whole expo has been fairly sluggish. 2022's dates were announced a full year in advance day and date. Ticket sales were in January for September if my memory serves me right.

Not exactly at the 11 month window as this was (and really 2022 had a good excuse) with March ticket sales for an early August date.

2019's dates were announced about 17 months in advance with tickets on sale a full year ahead of time!

I'm chalking this up to the logistics of the Honda Center. But I'd much prefer them to get a little more ahead of schedule for 2026. Mostly just the dates is what I care about. Though I am very thankful the keynote scramble is technically over with. That was a positive change. If there are show passes again for convention hall stuff, hopefully they do that lottery system.

This is my first expo I plan to attend in person so can only go by historical data. It does seem that way, they are waiting an awfully long time to be release information.

64 days out now and I feel we should know way more? Maybe that’s just me though, I would like to plan somethings out (namely panels/events) in advance if possible.

Ya, the keynotes though and our seating is ahead of the game, so that's generally a positive to me.

I'm still quite interested in what they do with Hall D23 and the convention floor in general. There's a lot of extra space to use now.

From one of the earlier press releases, Halls A-D will be used for show floor pavilions and the shops have been moved to the north hall.
