Here it is, my first official NWR (Non-Wedding Related) blog post! As any good Disney fan knows, this past weekend was the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center. At the risk of sound blasphemous, I’ll go ahead and say it: I went to the first Expo in 2009 and I didn’t enjoy it. I went for all three days and was a little bored by the vendors, and a little annoyed at the disorganization and long lines for the presentations. Also a bit dismaying was the fact that thanks to social media, everything that was announced at the Expo was plastered all over the internet within seconds, making me feel, well, less special. And we all want to be special, right?
I wasn’t planning on going this year. But as the Expo neared, I felt it calling to me. “Miiiiiiiindyyyyy, it’s your pal, Diiiiiiisney. You love me soooo muuuuuuch. You know you want to beeeeeee with meeeeeeeee.”
So I bought a ticket for Sunday. And I went. And, I was disappointed, again. But I had much more fun this year than I did in 2009. Why? Because of the people I went with. I met up with four other Disneyland Brides, past and future, and had a blast!

At the end of the day, one of my friends surprised us all with a Minnie plush! Made exclusively for D23! I love these colors!
We ended the day back at my friend’s Disneyland Hotel room watching the fireworks. So even though the Expo itself was a let down, it was still a perfect day!
