ElecTRONica at Disney California Adventure Park

We’ve had a lot of fun with meet-ups for Toy Story Mania and “World of Color,” and we’ve received some great comments from fans who liked the events. I’ve spoken with many of you and the one request I’ve heard over and over is: “Do more and include more people!” I’ve also noticed that a lot of you are excited about the upcoming Disney film, “TRON: Legacy” and the new ElecTRONica experience at Disney California Adventure park.

So, today, I’m announcing a meet-up on October 28, 2010, for 3000 people at ElecTRONica (that’s 1500 RSVPs each valid for 2 people). Given the large amount of attendees, this will certainly be different from the first two.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Access to Disney California Adventure park at 4 p.m. and exclusive access to an after-hours ElecTRONica experience from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on October 28. (The Park closes at 8 p.m. on October 28, and ElecTRONica normally runs on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays each week).
  • Opportunity to come decked out in your best TRON or TRON-inspired costume at this special event.
  • Signing opportunity with screenwriters for “TRON: Legacy,” Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. (This will be limited to 200 people. You may sign up for this opportunity when you check-in for the event on October 28).
  • Opportunity to view select props and concept art from “TRON: Legacy.”
  • Commemorative Flynn’s Arcade coin made just for attendees of this meet-up.

To attend, RSVP to meetups@disney.go.com and follow these directions carefully:

  • All guests who RSVP for the event must be 18 years or older, but your guest does not need to be 18.
  • Valid RSVPs must include 1) “ElecTRONica Meet-Up RSVP” in the subject line and 2) your name in the body of the email. All RSVPs will be for the person who responds plus one guest.
  • Valid photo I.D. will be required at check-in.

We will send an email to those who send their valid RSVP before we reach capacity to confirm their attendance for October 28. Depending on your email settings, you may not receive the confirmation email, so we recommend that you also check the list of attendees on the Disney Parks Blog. We will give an update at the top of this post that will include a link to the list of names of all confirmed attendees. If you do not receive an email from us confirming your reservation and your name does not appear on the list of attendees, your RSVP was not accepted.

Please note the event is subject to change or cancellation.

I’m really excited about the event, and I look forward to meeting a lot more of you on October 28.

Nuemi on October 19th, 2010 at 1:07 pm

Do we need to add the name of the guest and email in the body of the email? Or do you just require the name of the person submitting the request? But this is exciting. Thanks Disney : )

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 1:09 pm

Glad you’re excited :) We don’t need the name of your guest.

thanks for hosting another meet up disney!

William on October 19th, 2010 at 1:11 pm

The 28th is tronnight2010 also!? If the 20 minute preview is over by 7:20, that gives me 40 minutes to get to Anaheim. It might be possible…

Jason on October 19th, 2010 at 1:12 pm

Sadly this conflicts with the Tron Night 2010 on 10/28/10 as well.

11

Julie on October 19th, 2010 at 1:12 pm

Heather…Hope I get the “good email”…the Toy Story Meet-up was fantastic !…

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 1:31 pm

Glad to hear it, Julie! This event will be very different from the Toy Story Mania Meet-up, but I hope you enjoy this one as well.

victor from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 1:13 pm

I RSVP’d…..excited to join this event.

Anonymous on October 19th, 2010 at 1:14 pm

can you attend both the villans party and the meet up

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 1:30 pm

The events take place at the same time, so it’s pretty hard to attend both. With that said, you won’t be excluded from the list if you email us before we reach capacity and are attending the Villains Victory Party. If you don’t really plan to attend the ElecTRONica meet-up, it would be nice to leave the spot open for someone else.

14

Erica from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 1:18 pm

Is this event free for those who sent an rsvp?

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 1:27 pm

There is no charge for access to Disney California Adventure park or ElecTRONica for those who are on the guest list for this event.

15

Irene on October 19th, 2010 at 1:22 pm

absolutely! I’m there xo

16

Laura on October 19th, 2010 at 1:22 pm

I’m excited about possibly attending this one! The date just so happened to work out perfectly, so I hope the RSVP does too. :)

jackie from AZ on October 19th, 2010 at 1:22 pm

Sent mine.. When would we get a confirmation email?

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 1:32 pm

1500 RSVPs is a lot to go through. We’ll send the email and post the list of winners just as soon as we’ve gone through them all. :)

Roger on October 19th, 2010 at 1:24 pm

“•Access to Disney California Adventure park at 4 p.m.”

Does that mean attendees do not need to have a ticket or annual pass?

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 1:33 pm

Yes, that’s correct, Roger. You do not need a ticket or annual pass.

Anonymous on October 19th, 2010 at 1:26 pm

Do we need to have an admission ticket to DCA for this event? Before the Meet-up, will there be a chance to enjoy other areas of the park?

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 1:34 pm

If you attend, you’re welcome to enjoy Disney California Adventure park after you check-in and before the meet-up starts.

Marilyn from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 1:27 pm

Im excited too, I heard electronica was really good. I hope I get to go too.

21

Anonymous on October 19th, 2010 at 1:27 pm

If our guests don’t have a Disney pass or a ticket, will they need to purchase one or is a complimentary entrance into California Adventure part of the RSVP?

22

kat on October 19th, 2010 at 1:28 pm

oh my!!! I hope we get to go! Crazy, long drive but sooooooo worth it! We love the meet-ups! Disney Folks are a special group of people!

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Hi Kat. It would be great to see you again. As you’re considering the drive, just know there’s no panel discussion for this meet-up. This event is mainly about experiencing ElecTRONica.

23

Fred from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 1:30 pm

Well, I sent mine. Hopefully I wasen’t too late.

Yes, your guest will need to arrive with you.

32

Michelle on October 19th, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I hope I get on the list! :) Me and my future husband will be on our honeymoon at Disneyland and the 28th is the last day/night we’ll be there so that would be awesome to end our honeymoon with this!

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Congratulations, Michelle! Enjoy the honeymoon!

mandy from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 1:59 pm

Hi Heather!I am excited to find out if we made it on the list of lucky people! I did have a question though…was it valid to send emails out more than once with my name and my spouse so we would be able to both attend with our two children(teens) ? Of course, I sent mine off right at 10 without subject line I was so excited… Crossing fingers and toes and wearing my mouse ears :)

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 3:17 pm

Mandy, there is only one RSVP per email address.

34

mynor on October 19th, 2010 at 2:01 pm

Aw man..Toy Story was a great meet up…with the cool BLOG Pins we got and those good cookies…Hopefully Heather gets my RSVP…I’d really like to join this meet up. Is there any more pins coming up??

35

Destiny on October 19th, 2010 at 2:04 pm

Wait what this villans party?!?! I can’t believe i missed that?!?!?! sad face

36

Anonymous on October 19th, 2010 at 2:07 pm

Hi heather, if selected is it possible to enter the park after 8:00pm? Entering the park meaning park in the parking structure and take the tram to California Adventure.

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 3:18 pm

To attend this meet-up, you will need to check-in prior to 8 p.m.

37

Kayla from AZ on October 19th, 2010 at 2:10 pm

So would we have to be into California Adventure by 8pm? Or can we arrive anytime before 10?

38

Laura on October 19th, 2010 at 2:15 pm

How will parking be handled for this event?

Of course given that my email made it in time, I have an AP with parking, but my guest does not and will likely be arriving in her own vehicle. Will she be paying to park in the structure? Thanks Heather!

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 3:19 pm

There are several different parking options, and there are also Guest Drop-Off Areas. You can get additional information at http://disneyland.disney.go.com/plan/guest-services/parking/.

Danielle from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 2:27 pm

Hi Heather,

41

Vanessa from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 2:39 pm

I have my fingers crossed. I really, really want to go!

42

Matthew from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 3:12 pm

Sure hope we get selected…. would love to put a story up about this event on our website!

43

JOANNA on October 19th, 2010 at 3:13 pm

I hope I get picked! Joanna W!

44

Michael on October 19th, 2010 at 3:15 pm

Are you able to accommodate late arrivals? What is the latest a guest can check in for this event? This event takes place on the same night as “TRON Night An IMAX 3D Experience”. Hopefully you guys are thinking of the biggest fans.

45

mandy from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 3:32 pm

AHHHH I am so glad I rsvp’d with both emails, but I did both in my husbands name!!! hopefully I re-entered mine in time! goodluck to everyone!

46

Elizabeth on October 19th, 2010 at 3:33 pm

This is so exciting! I hope we get picked. It’s a day after my birthday and it would be great to be able to go. I have never had the joy of getting picked for any of the other events. I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

47

Anonymous on October 19th, 2010 at 3:36 pm

any sent emails yet???

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 4:18 pm

No emails have been sent. We’re still going through emails.

48

Patrick from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 3:48 pm

Someone asked this already but you didn’t actually answer the question: Do we need a ticket to DCA to attend the event?
My guest does not have an annual pass and I need to know if they need to buy a ticket or not.

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 4:17 pm

You do not need a ticket.

49

Virginia from CA on October 19th, 2010 at 3:59 pm

My fiance and I have been working on Tron costumes since July… LOTS of detailed reflective tape cut into original Tron costume circuitry designs. hehe! I hope we get selected so we can rock out our new costumes in style! ^_^

GABRIELA on October 19th, 2010 at 4:02 pm

Heather? how long does it normally take for the winners roster to be posted?

 

Heather Hust Rivera on October 19th, 2010 at 4:26 pm

There isn’t a “normal” amount of time. This is considerably more than we’ve ever done before. We’ll have the list up and emails sent just as soon as we can.
