Another fall event taking place at Walt Disney World as been officially postponed. D23 announced today that the 2020 Destination D: Fantastic Worlds event — originally scheduled for November at Disney World — has been postponed to 2021.
D23 announced the event postponement on their official Instagram page:
Due to the global impact of the COVID-19 virus and protocols necessary to ensure social distancing, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Destination D event until 2021.
We plan to announce a new date for Destination D later this year and will continue to host exclusive virtual events throughout 2020.
We look forward to seeing you at a D23 event in the near future.
Below is the official description of the event. Please note this description contains the original 2020 dates and not the modified dates, as the new dates have not been announced.
November 20–22: D23 Desination D: Fantastic Worlds
Later in what is already shaping up to be an incredible year of events, Destination D returns to Walt Disney World November 20–22 and will honor Disney’s many magical places, from the extraordinary to the fantastical. In addition, the Walt Disney Archives is creating an all-new exhibit that will include 50 iconic treasures, representing the 50 years of the Archives. And Walt Disney Imagineering’s store, Mickey’s of Glendale, will once again open a pop-up shop featuring exclusive items.
The event has been removed from the 2020 D23 events calendar since this announcement was made.
We expect to find out more news about Destination D soon and we will update Inside the Magic as soon as more is announced. If you are a D23 member or you were planning to attend Destination D, we recommend visiting the D23 website for more information.
