One of the popular aspects of the D23 Expo is always the merchandise, with the three main Disney store booths usually topping the list of long lines and longing guests. While I myself was never able to get any shopping done, Disney did allow me to take a look around and get some photos of the wondrous products that awaited the patient/well-prepared/desperate.
The Disney Store
While many items from the Disney Store booth were event-exclusive, many will eventually make their way to general sale…although specific dates were not forthcoming. Of the three, this is often the hardest to access.

Disney Dream Store
The Disney Dream Store has largely Expo-specific merchandise. While still attracting an abundance of shoppers, the lines for this one often start shrinking a little by the time Saturday is over and you’ve passed the half-way mark.
Mickey’s of Glendale
My personal favorite, this store is usually accessible only to Disney employees unless you’re lucky enough to score on one of D23’s yearly shopping events there. They tend to have a good amount of attraction-specific merchandise and are fervently sought after for their limited edition pins. I don’t have any photos of those, however, because the people in that section were doing some aggressive buying and I didn’t want to lose an arm.
