Mickey at D23 Expo

ANAHEIM, Calif.--They say that Disneyland, a block away from here, is the happiest place on Earth. But for hard-core Disney fans, being at the D23 Expo might be true nirvana.

Thousands made their way to the Anaheim Convention Center to hear the latest Disney news -- such as the first real plot points to be released on three forthcoming Pixar films -- and see the latest and greatest (or most historical) Disney art.
