D23 Updates Expo Website With Advance Reservation Information


Yesterday we shared the news that D23 will be using an advance registration system for select panels, shopping and talent experiences. Today they have updated the D23 Expo Website’s “Things to Know” section to include information on that system.
The information released today dispels some of the rumors started last night by fans that you could only get “one reservation a day for panels.” Per D23 “You will be able to make one reservation per time slot. If you do not arrive by the time specified prior to your reservation, your spot will be filled by standby Guests. For Hall D23 and the D23 Expo Arena, the Gold Member Priority Queue will have first access to general seating, followed by StagePass reservations. Standby queues will fill in remaining seats. For Stage 28 and the Walt Disney Archives Stage, StagePass has first access to general seating.”
Guests will be allowed one StorePass per day, just like in 2015 and 2017. Guests will be allowed to reserve up to 3 TalentPasses per day. The information also repeats what we shared last night about international guests being able to use the online reservation system without their Expo credentials in hand.
Below is the new information now posted on the D23 website.

PRESENTATIONS & QUEUES

Advance Online Reservations
Advance online reservations allow you to make complimentary advance reservations for select D23 Expo experiences for you and another D23 Expo Guest.  If you do not receive your desired reservation(s), there will be standby queues at all StorePass, StagePass, and Talent Central locations.

  • StorePass provides entry at a designated time to shop at either Disney Dream Store, Disney Store, or Mickey’s of Glendale. You may reserve one (1) StorePass per day. Arrive at the shopping location no later than five minutes prior to the start of your reserved timeslot.
  • StagePass guarantees entry to select sessions at Hall D23, the D23 Expo Arena, Stage 28, and the Walt Disney Archives Stage. Seating is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. StagePass tickets are not assigned to a specific seat. You may reserve up to two (2) StagePasses per day, and each reservation must be for a different stage. For Hall D23, arrive at least one (1) hour prior to the start of the session. For the D23 Expo Arena, Stage 28, and the Walt Disney Archives Stage, arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the session.
  • TalentPass provides reservations for talent photos, signings, and other experiences across the Show Floor, including Talent Central. For Talent Central, you may reserve up to three (3) TalentPasses per day. Arrive at Talent Central no later than 15 minutes prior to the start of your reserved time slot.

Please note: A valid and activated D23 Expo adult badge is required to make and check in for a reservation. Children under the age of 14 are unable to make advance online reservations. Guests outside of the United States who have purchased D23 Expo tickets will be able to participate in advanced online reservations. More information on how this process will work will be shared in the next few weeks. These guests will still need to pick up their badges onsite at Will Call. You will be able to make one reservation per time slot. If you do not arrive by the time specified prior to your reservation, your spot will be filled by standby Guests. For Hall D23 and the D23 Expo Arena, the Gold Member Priority Queue will have first access to general seating, followed by StagePass reservations. Standby queues will fill in remaining seats. For Stage 28 and the Walt Disney Archives Stage, StagePass has first access to general seating.
