Steps To Making D23 Expo Online Reservations
- Activate your D23 Expo badge online- here’s how. You can’t get an online reservation for the Movie Panels or the Disney+ Panel if you don’t active the badge! D23 Expo sent badges and instructions by mail and instructions via email as well. Check your inboxes.
- Have your badge number and email ready. You’ll need these when you log into the system to book your reservations.
- Use ONE source to login. D23 Expo says having multiple screens or devices logged in with the same badge number could cause issues. So just pick your fastest connection and May the Force Be With You.
- Know what you want! Things are going to go fast and it’s first come first serve. Plan ahead, know what your goals are, and be ready to roll.
- One reservation per time slot: Don’t pick overlapping sessions! It won’t work and you could be disappointed.
- Decide if you are bringing a friend. You do not need to include a name or badge number when you pick this choice on the reservation page.
- Select a time slot to hold your reservation. You need to do this as you make the rest of your choices; after you complete your choices you can click “I’m Done” to confirm your spots.
- Clicking “Confirm Reservations” locks in your choices. You won’t be able to make changes!
