D23 Expo 2015: Disney Interactive Presentation


Date of Visit: August 16, 2015

The Disney Interactive presentation was the one Mik was most looking forward to because he knew they were going to talk about Star Wars: Battlefront. He was also interested in Kingdom Hearts 3 and Star Wars coming to Disney Infinity with the 3.0 Edition of the game. Plus, there was a giveaway at the end, which ended up being a Mickey figure and a D23 Expo exclusive King Mickey power disc for Disney Infinity 3.0.


Getting to the presentation ended up being a disaster. We kept asking to go to the Sorcerer queue and they sent us downstairs, which we hadn't had to do any of the other Hall 23 presentations. Downstairs they tried to convince us it was free for all and not only was there no Sorcerer line, but there never had been such a thing for the Hall 23 presentations. Thus, we headed back up the elevator to find someone who knew what was actually going on. Good thing we were very early, though, and even wasting 15 minutes with the runaround, we were second in line and got front row for the presentation that mattered most to Mik.


If only, that was the end of the disaster for this presentation. At the end of the presentation, they had the stars from the new Star Wars movie giveaway signed Disney Infinity figures of them. They came down the aisle where Mik was on the end to give them to some kids a few rows back and the cameraman followed them without paying attention to his cord and it got caught on Mik's chair (and was basically in his lap) and he got really freaked because it did start to tip back. Thankfully, that was the last presentation because he may have been hesitant to do another one after that experience.



Overall, though, he really loved the presentation and seeing the game concept art and footage on the big screens. However, it was kind of odd they only used the side screens and not the middle screen for a lot of the footage and it was a little hard for him to turn sideways enough to view those screens.
