A highlight of Day 1 of the 2011 D23 Expo came as one of the final presentations of the day. In the upstairs Stage 28, “Voices of the Parks” brought together a panel of voice actors who have lent their talents to Disney’s many theme parks, either as a character on a ride, safety spiel, or announcement. Their faces may not be familiar, but their voices certainly are.
Near the end of the 60+ minute presentation, all of the panelists were handed scripts they had previously read for Disney parks and were asked to perform their roles live for the audience. The result was an hilarious mixture of Darth Vader, Tower of Terror, Indiana Jones Adventure, It’s a Small World, Autopia, and many more classic bits of audio, reenacted live at the D23 Expo. Enjoy it all in the video below.

This is just a short clip of the highly entertaining presentation that helped to cap off the first day of the 2011 D23 Expo. I’ll be sharing a full audio recording of this presentation on a future podcast, but for now, keep checking back throughout the weekend for even more Expo excitement.
