Lupita Nyong’o Goes to Disneyland for the First Time, Is the Unofficial MVP of Disney’s D230 Expo!
Aw, Lupita Nyong’o had a very memorable weekend!
The Oscar winner went to Disneyland for the first time ever. Yeah, can you believe it?! And it seemed like The Happiest Place on Earth lived up to its name, judging by the sweet photo the actress shared of herself flashing her pearly whites while at the D23 Expo.
“First trip to #Disneyland!!! #myfirstears. Mummy, this is for you! #d23expo @disneystudios,” Nyong’o wrote with the snapshot.
She also shared another photo of her hilariously screaming while at the front of Splash Mountain. “Well, this is clearly what courage looks like. #Disneyland with #TeamLN #d23expo.”

Nyong’o pulled triple duty Saturday at Disney’s Expo, promoting Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Jungle Book and The Queen of Katwe at the event.
Along with the previous photos, she also said she was “Geekin’ out” at the annual event, and happily showed off posters for both Star Wars and The Jungle Book in another pic.
Nyong’o also got to meet one of her Jungle Book co-stars for the first time at the Expo. “Met my #TheJungleBook son #Mowgli for the first time today, Neel Sethi,” she wrote on Instagram. “And we watched a teaser with the#d23expo crowd for the first time. The world is in for a TREAT.”
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives Dec. 18, while The Jungle Book will open in theaters on April 15, 2016. The Queen of Katwe does not have a release date yet.
