Another keynote session is about to be underway, this time from Tilak Mandadi, Executive Vice President, Digital and Chief Technology Officer for Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. Stay tuned to this thread for any updates

Mandadi is giving his keynote speech from Disney California Adventure while the park is closed.
