Disneyland's D23 cut to every two years

The D23 Expo, Disneyland's answer to Comic-Con, was such a flop in its debut last September that it won't take place at all this year.

The Disney people announced today that the fan convention will take place August 19th to 21st, 2011 at the Anaheim Convention Center across the street from Disneyland, and continue as a biennial event.

Subbing this year will be a look back called "Destination D," September 24th and 25th, focusing on "Disneyland '55" and the park's opening 55 years ago.

The Disney people have way low expectations for Destination D. They'll stage it in the Grand Ballroom of the Disneyland Hotel. Panels and presentations are set to include "Disney Undiscovered," never-built projects and attractions, and "Weird Disney," showcasing little-known facts, people and places in Disneyland history.

Tickets for Destination D and next year's expo go on sale this summer.
