2020 Disney Channel Fan Fest

Disney Channel Fan Fest 

We’ve been waiting for the release of this news and it’s finally out!!

When is Disney Channel Fan Fest? 

Disney Channel Fan Fest 2020 is scheduled for May 9th at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California. 

What is Disney Channel Fan Fest? 

Disney Channel Fan Fest is a fun and uniquely Disney experience for kids and families. 

My daughter and I attended this event last year and I have to tell you, it’s a MUST attend for any Disney Channel fan. It’s truly and amazing way to get up close and personal to your favorite Disney Channel stars.

Disney Channel Fan Fest Cavalcade

Disney Channel Fan Fest kicks off with a cavalcade down Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland Park and that’s where all of the excitement really builds because kids can literally see all of their favorite Disney Channel stars up close and personal! 

Here’s our video from the Disney Channel Fan Fest Cavalcade last year, and as you can see … my daughter was totally blown away by how many of her favorite Disney Channel stars were in the parade waving to her! *My personal favorite moment was at about 2:25 when my daughter spots one of her favorites, Dove Cameron in the Cavalcade parade. (but wait… read on, it gets even better!) 

Recognize anyone? Isn’t that the coolest!?

But wait!! It gets even cooler!! Throughout the day, the park hosts different events and panels that you can attend to find out more about your favorite shows! 

Raven’s Home and Andi Mack Interview Panel

Just Roll With It Cast at Disney Channel Fan Fest 

Interview with the Cast of Descendants 3

One of the HUGE highlights of Disney Channel Fan Fest was the live interview panel with the cast of Descendants 3 that included Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Cheyenne Jackson, BooBoo Stewart, Jadah Marie and Anna Cathcart.

It was so neat to see young fans enjoy these moments with their favorite Disney actors and actresses and there was so much joy and energy! 

DescenDANCE Party at Disney Channel Fan Fest

The energy ramped up even more at the Descendant 3 DescenDANCE party! I still get goosebumps when I watch this video because it was such a neat way to include fans and allow them to feel included in the celebration with the Disney Channel kids and the stars of Descendants.

Here’s a peek at the DescenDANCE party: 

Interview with Cheyenne Jackson from Descendants 3

And a personal highlight for my daughter was getting to grab a quick interview with Cheyenne Jackson. You might know him as the blue haired Hades, Mal’s father from Descendants 3 but we still refer to him as one of the coolest guys ever as he took the time to sit down and chat with my daughter Lauren about his character in the film. 

How cool was that!? And I’m telling you, the entire day is just the most exciting whirlwind of Disney Channel awesome! 

Disney Stars at Disney Channel Fan Fest

What celebrities and Disney Channel stars will be at Disney Channel Fest 2020? 

We get asked this a lot and I have to say, there were so many more Disney celebrities at Disney Channel Fan Fest 2019 than I expected! The coolest part was that they were all there enjoying the day, right along with the fans.

They clearly know who their people are and it was so neat to see how kind and engaging these kids (and adults) were to their young audiences. 

While I’m not sure who will be there this year (I do have some guesses!) here is a peek at a few of our favorites from last year: 

Dove Cameron at Disneyland

And soooo many more!!

And I have to say (again) that they were all so warm and welcoming and seemed to really realize how neat this was for young Disney fans.

As a mom, I wanted to run up and hug them all for being so awesome with the kids. It just made my mama heart so happy and as you can see, my daughter was just tickled pink over the whole thing!
