Four cartoon-y, round-headed “DisneyMe” characters, each dressed in a different Disney-themed outfit: Jedi Robes, Belle’s yellow dress, a Mouse Ear hat, and a pirate hat. The characters are smiling and surrounded by sparkles while the text “The Quest starts on September 8. DisneyMe: D23 Expo Quest.”

Magic on the Show Floor
The Disney Parks and Experiences Wonderful World of Dreams pavilion invites attendees to step into new stories, attractions, and adventures Walt Disney Imagineers are bringing to life around the globe.

Guests at the D23 Expo will get first access to DisneyMe, an all-new digital avatar in the Play Disney Parks app. This experience empowers guests to express their Disney style by creating their own unique DisneyMe. To celebrate the launch of DisneyMe as part of Disney Uncharted Adventure on the Disney Wish, guests at the D23 Expo will be invited to a quest that can only be completed at the expo! Attendees will uncover specially designed Disney Wish and D23 Expo digital clothing and accessories for their DisneyMe around the show floor.
