Josh D’Amaro’s Parks Panel Returns

One of the most anticipated panels of Destination D23 2023 will be hosted by Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products.

D23 says D’Amaro will share “a fun and entertaining presentation about what makes a Disney experience so magical and memorable.” The parks’ chairman’s presentation at Destination D23 has traditionally also included news about upcoming projects (and occasionally even a few surprise reveals).

During his 2021 Destination D23 presentation, D’Amaro revealed details about Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary, announced the name of Epcot’s Connections Café and Eatery, shared the opening season of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and hailed the return of many experiences that had closed due to the pandemic, among other updates about attractions worldwide.

A Look Back Into Disney History

Throughout the weekend, renowned figures important to Disney’s legacy will share their insights into the company’s 100-year history.

Some of the recently-announced panels will cover the early days of Disney, weird moments in Disney history, Walt Disney’s spirit of optimism, and “the Disney you didn’t know.” More panels and special guests will be announced later.
