Perhaps the most unexpected announcement is the use of RFID chip badges for entrances to the 2019 Expo. This will be the first time this technology will be used for a D23 Expo.
D23 also announced that the D23 Expo 2019 Design Challenge will feature a Haunted Mansion theme.
Fans are encouraged to create ghoulishly delightful designs, from paintings and drawings to sculptures and models, inspired by the beloved attraction and its 999 happy haunts. Twenty-three pieces of finalist artwork will be on display throughout the D23 Expo weekend at a gallery on the show floor. The winning artist will be chosen prior to the start of the D23 Expo and will receive a cash prize of $2,300.
The Mousequerade costume contest will return to the expo with actress Yvette Nicole Brown and fashion designer Ashley Eckstein returning as judges, which will include dozens of incredible creations from fans from around the world.
