Join Us for Our ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Disney Parks Blog Meet-Up at Epcot

posted on February 19th, 2013 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

UPDATE: This event has been filled to capacity. Please CLICK HERE to view a list of the accepted event attendees. If you are on the list and do not receive a confirmation email by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, please contact us at

Sure, the official opening of “Oz the Great and Powerful” may be a few weeks away, but this Sunday, Disney Parks Blog readers will have a chance to see a special sneak peek screening of the film at Epcot and experience our new “Land of Oz Garden” at the park.

The film tells the backstory of Oz the Great and Powerful. In it, small-time magician Oscar Diggs is hurled away from Kansas and into the Land of Oz. There, he’s drawn into the problems facing the residents of Oz, and must use his magical arts to save them and transform himself into the great and powerful wizard.

Our event begins at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 24. You’ll be able to see “Oz the Great and Powerful” in RealD 3-D in World Showplace at Epcot and check out “The Land of Oz Garden” on your way to the screening. There will be snacks and – like all Disney Parks Blog meet-ups – a surprise or two.

  • Valid photo I.D. will be required at check-in.
  • Meet-up confirmations are non-transferrable and have no cash value.
  • Confirmation will be for the accepted registered person plus their number of specified guests.
  • If you do not receive an email from us confirming your reservation, then your RSVP was not accepted.

Megan on February 19th, 2013 at 5:38 pm

Nicholas on February 19th, 2013 at 5:41 pm

Hmm, not a single first name after the letter J in the accepted event attendee list? Curious… :/


Norman on February 19th, 2013 at 5:47 pm

Yahaira on February 19th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

OMG I saw the list earlier and just figured I was out of luck. The website was still up hours later when I refreshed my phone and I’M IN!! So excited. Thanks Disney!


donna on February 20th, 2013 at 7:59 am

hhmmmmm….why do I get the email ABOUT the meet up the same day as I get the email it was filled up? This happens every single time there is a meetup. All of my DPB emails come the day after they are sent and I don’t know how/if I can change that. Was this posted on FB as well? donna


Darlene on February 20th, 2013 at 7:59 am

Is there a way to subscribe to be notified of all posts on the blog? I could only find the option to get the daily updates emailed to me the following day. We keep missing out on these opportunities. Thanks!


Darlene on February 20th, 2013 at 8:13 am

NM, found the solution. Missed the RSS button on the top of the page. :O)


Lara on February 20th, 2013 at 9:42 am

So excited to have made the list! Have to cancel my Be Our Guest reservation, but I am totally ok with that!! So excited!


Jeremiah from CA on February 20th, 2013 at 10:29 am

For everyone asking about getting a warning on it, they sent out a tweet at least a half hour before saying a meet-up was going to happen and stay tuned. Then they sent out another tweet with the link to sign up, so twitter can be your friend!


Victoria on February 20th, 2013 at 11:01 am

I wish I had seen this yesterday! It’s too late now :( We would have LOVED to have been there. Maybe next time we go to WDW


Becca on February 25th, 2013 at 8:38 am

Thanks Disney for such a fabulous meet up! The whole event was first class! I will be first to admit it was a little difficult to go 2 hours without my phone but I survived and it was worth every minute! The movie was wonderful.

Thank you
