Avengers: Assemble at D23 Expo. Because it’s almost go-time! The D23 Expo is held in Anaheim on August 23-25 and Marvel just announced the plans for it’s show floor presence. Panels, Stage Events, Merchandise – and, oh, guest appearances. Here’s what Marvel will do at the D23 Expo!
Marvel Announces D23 Expo Plans
I make no pretense around here: when it comes to my entertainment choices, Marvel is my #1 boyfriends. I love how the stories work together, how we are given such deep and connected characters, and how the hero just about always saves the day.
Marvel fangirling: it’s what I do!
This year’s Marvel Studios Pavillion plan has just been announced and I’m furiously making all the plans to do it all.
Okay, I know, that’s one of my D23 Expo Tips: you can’t do it all. But I’mma gonna try to get in as much of this MCU greatness as I can!
Marvel Studios Pavillion Video Experience and Costume Gallery
We’re getting a D23 Expo exclusive video experience and a chance to tour the costumes worn my characters from the MCU.
I’ve seen some of these costumes up close at the Avengers: Endgame premiere, and man, they are SO cool. This is a picture of one of Thor’s costumes from Disneyland in 2017.
Conversations With Marvel Filmmakers and Artists Inside the Pavillion
There will be special panels conversations and talent signings as well!
Plus: daily trivia prizes.
I wonder if they will give away Lola? (hey, if you are going to dream, dream big!)
Disney Parks “Imagining Tomorrow, Today” Pavilion
This pavilion will give fans a unique look at Tony Stark’s latest plans to recruit guests to join alongside the Avengers in fully immersive areas filled with action and adventure in Hong Kong, Paris, and California.
And if you want to know where you can find all the Marvel in the Disney parks, I’ve got that post for you right here.
Marvel Panels at D23 Expo
I don’t know how I’m going to cover them all, but I’m going to give it a try. There’s a multiverse, now, so maybe there’s another me available to get to all of these Marvel Panels at the D23 Expo.

I’m a fangirl and I don’t pretend otherwise. Geeking out over pop culture is a big part of My No-Guilt Life, and I’m here to say it’s ok if that’s your thing too! No matter how old you are. Ahem. I’m solidly on #TeamCap and think Iron Man has gotten a bit big for his gold-titanium alloy britches. Oh- and I’m completely in love with Agent Coulson and Agent May. Completely.
