We are only a few days away from Fanboy Expo Orlando 2021 at Wyndham Orlando Resort. This will be my first attending a Fanboy Expo, and I am hyped for a great weekend of hanging out on the show floor and getting items signed by some of the celebrity guests in attendance. If you are planning on going to the event, this is the perfect time to look at the current schedule to start planning your experience.
Due to limited capacity restrictions, a general admission ticket to the event will get you access to the show floor and celebrity guest booths but not the panels. The Q&A panel attendance is reserved for, Premium Weekend and VIP ticket holders.
You can purchase your tickets for either general admission or Premium Weekend and VIP tickets here.
The daily event hours are:
Friday, August 20 – 4pm-9pm
Saturday, August 21 – 10am-8pm
Sunday, August 22 – 10am-6pm
The Fanboy Expo Orlando daily schedule of events can be found here.
We previously highlighted all of the Darkwing Duck guests in another blog. I plan on getting an autograph from Jim Cummings (Darkwing Duck) and Rob Paulsen (Steelbeak) at their celebrity booths on the Fanboy Expo Orlando show floor.
Here are some of the other exciting Disney guests that will be in attendance this weekend.
From a galaxy far far away, Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars Clone Wars/Rebels) and Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Clone Wars) will be representing the Star Wars celebrity guests at Fanboy Expo Orlando. From the Marvel side of things, Ashley Eckstein also voiced Dagger in Ultimate Spider-man. I have had the pleasure of meeting both of these great voice actors before at Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Lee Arenberg (Pintel) and Kevin McNally (Gibbs) from one of my favorite Disney franchises, Pirates of the Caribbean, will be sailing into Orlando this weekend for Fanboy Expo. I wonder if they have ever heard of Pirate Steven?
Bret Iwan (Mickey Mouse) has been the voice of Mickey Mouse since 2010. He started this epic role with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and various Disney video games including Kingdom Hearts and Epic Mickey.
Representing the early Disney years, the voice actors that provided the voice for Bambi and Thumper for Bambi (1942) and Margaret Kerry who was the model reference for Tinkerbell from Peter Pan (1953) will all be in attendance.
Speaking of Peter Pan, you can meet, Blayne Weaver, the voice actor who provided the voice for Peter Pan in Peter Pan II: Return to Neverland at Fanboy Expo Orlando.
The full celebrity guest list can be viewed here.
Some of these Disney guests will also take place in a special Disney Brunch on Sunday (Aug 22). Tickets to the Disney Brunch can be purchased here.
