The D23 Expo kicked off with a presentation by Disney CEO Bob Iger.
"The stories, characters and experiences we've created over the last 86 years are loved by millions of people like you — and me — all over the world. There are so many things that are wonderful about Disney: unforgettable music… beloved characters… thrilling theme park attractions. But the excitement that keeps us going year after year and generation after generation comes from you — the fans. It's your passion for Disney, your respect for our legacy, your fond nostalgia for our past and your anticipation of more fun in our future that make all of this work — that keeps the magic alive," said Iger.
After Iger's welcome, the Disney Company formally announced and recognized the 2009 Disney Legends.
