The ultimate House of Mouse fan event, D23 Expo will be taking over the Anaheim Convention Center in southern California from July 14 to 16. As part of the jam-packed programming, Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior will be presenting unique experiences for kids and families in celebration of some of their most buzzed-about new and upcoming series.

Highlights include Q&A panels featuring the voice casts of the rebooted DuckTales (Disney XD) and Tangled: The Series (Disney Channel), as well as star appearances from many of the channels’ live-action projects, such as the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants 2.

Disney XD’s DuckTales panel is set for Saturday, July 15 from 4:15-5:15 p.m. (Stage 28), with Ben Schwartz (voice of Dewey), Kate Micucci (Webby Vanderquack), Beck Bennett (Launchpad McQuack), Toks Olagundoye (Mrs. Beakley), executive producer Matt Youngberg and co-producer/story editor Francisco Angones.

Disney Channel’s Tangled: The Series panel will take place Sunday, July 16 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. (Stage 28), with Mandy Moore (voice of Rapunzel) and Zachary Levi (Eugene, a.k.a. Flynn Rider) — who return to voice their popular feature film characters for the new series — joined by executive producer Chris Sonnenburg, co-executive producer Ben Balistreri, and Broadway stars turned Tanglers Eden Espinosa (Cassandra) and Jeremy Jordan (Varian).

One can’t-miss experience: Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin is coming to the convention hall floor, giving fans the priceless opportunity to dive into a sea of more than 30,000 (plastic) gold goins and swim away with a professional, 180-degree video capture to share with friends. The new DuckTales premieres this summer, in line with the Emmy-winning original cartoon’s 30th anniversary.

Young fans will want to pay a visit to Doc McStuffins Toy Hospital Nursery, which will be on the floor for all three days. Tots can give the toy babies a checkup, and be among the first to check out the new Doc McStuffins Baby app, which launches this summer. The Hospital Nursery is part of Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit traveling museum event.
