Tony Baxer mentioned that there is approval to improve the Fantasyland Alice in Wonderland attraction, which after Peter Pan, Baxer feels is the best dark ride. Personally, I'm hopeful that Imagineering can improve the attraction after the quick safety improvements.

Marc Davis did for character on attractions. The D23 audience was treated to a video of Marc Davis that had only been shown once at an event after his passing away.
Herb Ryman understood the importance of details. When working on Disney World, a bridge was needed to connect Liberty Square to the hub. Ryman's idea was to use the Concord bridge rather than just a bridge because the cost would come out the same, but using the Concord bridge as a model would provide a historical context. They also discussed Ryman's role in New Orleans square. It was designed to be specifically vague.The panel was running long so they quickly touched on John Hench's annual Mickey Mouse portraits.
