Tickets and more information are available at but hurry-many of the Fanniversay events are already sold out.  Which Fanniversay will you be taking in this year?


  1. Reading about D23 gives me mixed emotions. I bought into it the first year, but they never, ever come anywhere near the Canada border so those events are out and the one time I could purchase tickets for a special event in the MK ( which included seeing Cindy's Castle) it was sold out in seconds! I no longer have the paid membership, but it is fun to see all the great events they have lined up.. Kind of reminds me of the DSMM OTR events... :-(

  2. I am so lucky that we have the Walt Disney Family Museum so close by as it hosts several D23 events each year. When you can take advantage of all it has to offer, it's a wonderful program. At the very least, the Disney Store discounts have really helped ! I think you should join for next year and come to the D23 Expo with me next year! In the meantime, contact D23 and let them know of the tremendous fan base they have in Canada. Maybe it will be just the motivation they need to start events up there. Personally I am hoping that #DisneySMMoms On The Road comes your way next year so I can come visit!
