Will the balloon land at the Disneyland Resort? Or will it be flying above? Where is the best place to see it? I am so excited for this movie, I could die! I was bummed I missed signing up for the free D23 and Disney Vacation Club screenings, but March is soon enough and I CANNOT WAIT!!!!

Loren – The balloon will be on the ground in the Esplanade (the space between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks).

This is brilliant! I saw pictures of it earlier (sorry had to sneak a peek) and what a great way to promote the movie. I just got the flyer from El Capitan in the mail and am booking reservations tonight. Good luck tomorrow!

How late will it be at the parks? My sister and I will be bringing my niece to DL for her birthday on Monday and we get in Sunday evening, so I’m curious if it will still be be there when we arrive around 7-ish.

Hey, Erin! What happened to the balloon this morning? Fortunately, I got there at opening and got to see it in all its glory, but my friends who came after 10 am missed it. Everyone thought it was going to be there all day. At least I have my pictures to share with them. LOL! And the sneak peek was AMAZING!
