Amidst exciting and entertaining presentations, panel discussions, and screenings, the 2011 D23 Expo also featured a large show floor spanning multiple levels and including three big stores, many interactive exhibits, as well as up-close looks at props, costumes and models from Disney theme parks, movies, and television. From Aug. 19 – 21, 2011 (plus a few previews on Aug. 18), guests traveled from around the world to see it all and now that it’s ended, we bring it all to you in extensive video and photos.
Included in the many booths and exhibits were the Disney Living pavilion, featuring a variety of new and upcoming consumer products, Disney Channel pavilion, featuring celebrity appearances, the Disney Gaming Pavilion, featuring current and upcoming video games, a Pirates of the Caribbean exhibit, featuring props and costumes from the films, a Collector’s Forum of unofficial booths, and much more.
A complete walk around the 2011 D23 Expo floor took around 20-30 minutes, without stopping to browse. And that’s exactly what I did, with video camera in hand.

The video above does not enter the extensive Disney Parks and Resorts “Carousel of Projects” pavilion, nor the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit, as we had toured those during a media preview before the Expo began. But while you’re here, take a look around both:

Throughout the D23 Expo, we snapped more than 400 photos throughout the show floor and exhibits. Along with our pictures from many of the Expo presentations, the show floor photos are available in our photo gallery, organized into categories. Included below are a few of my favorite sights, followed by a slideshow featuring 256 pictures from throughout the D23 Expo show floor, including a variety of great costumes attendees were wearing. To see the rest of our D23 Expo, head over and browse through our other galleries to get a closer look at what guests had a chance to see.
