There are few better ways to express one’s fanhood than by putting on a costume and touring the floor of a local convention, and this weekend Walt Disney Studios is giving many a chance to do just that. The bi-annual D23 Expo has begun, and the floor of the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA is packed to the gills with cosplayers, cool standees, action figures, and more. And even if you can’t attend the event yourself, now you can see it all through my camera lens.

I spent my entire day at the D23 Expo today, spending both my early morning and afternoon covering the “Art and Imagination: Animation at the Walt Disney Studios” presentation in the convention center’s arena. I got to see exclusive footage from major upcoming Disney and Pixar releases like Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, Frozen and more, and while that footage won’t be coming online you can read my minute-by-minute coverage of the event through my live blog.

The rest of the day, however, I spent walking around the convention center taking more than 75 photos of people dressed as their favorite Disney characters and cool booths on the show floor. Check out the full gallery below and stay tuned for more of our D23 coverage tomorrow!
