VIDEO: Recap Of Disney Parks Experiences Announced At D23 Expo
During the D23 Expo 2019, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled amazing details on how Disney is bringing the next generation of immersive storytelling to life.
Chapek welcomed thousands of fans as he shared more about the ambitious plans in store for one of the most extraordinary periods of expansion in Disney history. From Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser and the timeless transformation of Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort, to the Avengers Campus coming to both Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris, to the Disney Wish arriving on the high seas in January 2022, there are more ways than ever for guests to be front and center in their favorite stories.
“It was Walt’s vision for our theme parks to be places where Disney stories come to life in amazing ways, and with the world’s most creative and talented team of artists and dreamers, there’s no shortage of inspiration,” Chapek said.
Here is a new video highlighting some favorite moments from the recent peek into how the next generation of immersive storytelling is coming to life at Disney Parks.
