Walked through the Expo.

All day today and Saturday there were speakers on the main stage.

The Expo was set up the same as the other events. On the left when you walked in was the Official Merchandise shop. The center area had the speakers, then the right side had all the booths. The merchandise area was the most crowded.

Heading through Downtown Disney... there is not much visible progress at the Earl of Sandwich location. Though the initial announcement had the shop opening in "Summer", now with less than three weeks left of the summer and no official date that seems unlikely.
