Cedric: completed the R U 23 Trivia Challenge (with some help from friends)

Jeanine: Lasseter was charming as always, with a lot of clips but no big revelations in his talk.

DMK: Shut out of Muppets presentation — but they had us leave our info so they can send us a “We’re Sorry” gift, something cute they say.

Don: just left D23. Actually very sad to be leaving. Was an excellent event and i will definately be sure to attend next year!

Jeanine: Pixar lines today=extra dose of waiting. Think Epcot Soarin’ on a bad day.

Jeanine: After being denied at Muppets, now settled in for a 1.5 hr wait in the next Pixar talk queue. On the upside, have obtained voucher.

Sara: Moving into the last few hours of D23. It’s been a great event!
