posted on December 3rd, 2013 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort


UPDATE: The “Saving Mr. Banks” Practically Perfect Preview presented by Disney Parks Blog has reached capacity, and confirmation emails will be sent tomorrow. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future events!

If you’re as excited as I am for Disney’s upcoming film, “Saving Mr. Banks,” then listen up! We’ve got a special opportunity next week for Disney Parks Blog readers to preview the must-see movie event of the holiday season, at the Disneyland Resort, before it opens in theaters December 20!

SMB555000

The evening will begin with a preview party at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Since “Saving Mr. Banks” will take us back to the world of the early 1960s, we invite our Practically Perfect Preview guests to dress extra dapper in their best early-’60s evening attire!

The party will feature a special presentation by Disney artist and historian Stacia Martin, who will share some of the stories behind the amazing music of “Mary Poppins” written by Richard and Robert Sherman. Guests will then be invited to join us at AMC Downtown Disney for a private preview screening of Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” starring Academy Award winners Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks.

And of course, there will be special entertainment throughout the evening!

So join us at the “Saving Mr. Banks” Practically Perfect Preview presented by Disney Parks Blog on Tuesday, December 10, at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Space for the event is limited and you must sign up here.

Please remember the following:

  • All participants who sign up for the event must be 18 years or older, but guests of the participants may be younger than 18.
  • Please keep in mind that “Saving Mr. Banks” is rated PG-13, which means that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
  • Each registrant may register just themselves or themselves and one (1) guest.
  • Confirmation will be for the number of persons registered in the party (maximum 2 persons).
  • Meet-up confirmations are non-transferrable and have no cash value. A registrant must attend for his/her guest to be able to attend.
  • Valid photo I.D. will be required at check-in.
  • Participants will be responsible for any parking fees.

I will give an update at the top of this post when capacity has been reached. Please note the event is subject to change or cancellation without notice.

14

Confirmation emails will be sent tomorrow.

18

Laura on December 3rd, 2013 at 6:24 pm

Also, I received a registration confirmation, but is everyone automatically assumed to bring a guest? Because I didn’t receive an option to add a guest… unless I missed it. :/ Would both people need to fill out the consent and release form? Thanks!

 

Erin Glover on December 3rd, 2013 at 6:54 pm

Laura – You are welcome to bring one guest. We’ll need both of you to fill out a release form.

19

Jordan on December 3rd, 2013 at 6:25 pm

27

Marie on December 3rd, 2013 at 6:39 pm

Hi Erin,

I was able to register but haven’t gotten my e-mail. I was able to print the Likeness waiver though. What should I do? Thanks.

 

Erin Glover on December 3rd, 2013 at 6:57 pm

Sit tight, Marie – confirmation emails will be sent tomorrow.

28

Adam on December 3rd, 2013 at 6:41 pm

Hi Erin, I was one of the lucky ones whom were able to register for the event, however, other than the ‘congratulations notice and required waiver’ there did not appear to be any sort of confirmation. Will a confirmation email be sent out by chance?

 

Erin Glover on December 3rd, 2013 at 6:57 pm

Yep – you should receive an email tomorrow.

29

Martha on December 3rd, 2013 at 6:46 pm

30

Theresa from CA on December 3rd, 2013 at 7:09 pm

When these events occur, is there a line for if there is extra space? If we didn’t get in, is there still a chance if we show up? I want to see this movie so bad!!

 

Erin Glover on December 3rd, 2013 at 8:02 pm

I’m sorry, Theresa, but there will not be a stand-by line.

31

Andrew on December 3rd, 2013 at 7:09 pm

Will Mary Poppins themed attire be accepted as well? I have some ideas…

 

Erin Glover on December 3rd, 2013 at 8:02 pm

Mary Poppins-inspired, sure! Just not full costumes, please.

32

cindy from CA on December 3rd, 2013 at 7:23 pm

wow those went fast =(

33

erika from CA on December 3rd, 2013 at 7:29 pm

Erin: I was able to get registered but need 2 tickets and didnt see where to ask for 2. Am I correct in assuming that if you are registered you can bring a plus one? Thank you so much for the opportunity.

 

Erin Glover on December 3rd, 2013 at 8:03 pm

Yes, Erika – your registration is valid for you plus one guest.

34

Veronica on December 3rd, 2013 at 8:05 pm

I be want to see the move how do I sign up .

35

Jordan on December 3rd, 2013 at 8:07 pm

I got the post on the website that said I was registered but my phone died and I wasn’t able to fill acess the likeness release forms for me or my guest before that. Does this mean I’m unregistered?

 

Erin Glover on December 4th, 2013 at 11:09 am

You should be fine, Jordan – just keep an eye on your email today for a confirmation note with instructions.

36

Monica on December 3rd, 2013 at 8:31 pm

Am I too late or are there still openings? Count me in if there is an opening!

 

Erin Glover on December 4th, 2013 at 11:09 am

I’m sorry, Monica, but we’ve reached capacity. Stay tuned for more events in the future!

37

rebecca on December 4th, 2013 at 9:51 am

I am an annual pass holder and Fl resident, i am also a blogger and was wondering how i can get involved in some of these extra activities so I can blog and spread the Disney word.

 

Erin Glover on December 4th, 2013 at 11:08 am

Rebecca – These events are open to anyone who reads the Disney Parks Blog, but they are booked first-come, first-served.

40

Paula from OH on December 4th, 2013 at 10:17 am

Erin, we will be in Cali that day, any chance there is a wait list or can we show up and wait? Just curious as my son LOVES Mary Poppins and we were hoping to get into something special while we were there next week. Thanks for any info.

 

Erin Glover on December 4th, 2013 at 11:07 am

I’m sorry, Paula, but we will not have a stand-by line for this event. But I hope you have a great visit! Stop by Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe – it’s got lots of fun “Mary Poppins” touches.

41

Rochelle on December 4th, 2013 at 1:26 pm

Will there be releases available to sign prior to the event? I’m having trouble printing one out. Can’t wait for the confirmation email later today. My son and I already have our flights confirmed (the 10th and 11th happened to be his days off next week).

 

Erin Glover on December 6th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

We’ll have copies there for you, Rochelle. Have a safe trip!

42

Neal on December 4th, 2013 at 1:52 pm

Can we park at the DTD lot?

 

Erin Glover on December 6th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

Yes, that would be a good place to park. Remember that you will be responsible for parking fees.

43

Andrew on December 4th, 2013 at 8:50 pm

I still have not gotten my confirmation email. Are they still being sent out today?

44

Mary on December 4th, 2013 at 11:18 pm

Since I have loved the movie Mary Poppins since I was a little girl and also a former Cast Member of Disney. I cant wait to see this movie. It looks really good! ºoº

45

Carol from CA on December 5th, 2013 at 10:36 am

I haven’t gotten a confirmation email yet either. I’m trying not to worry that my spot somehow fell through :(

 

Erin Glover on December 6th, 2013 at 1:07 pm

Carol – If you saw a confirmation page when you registered, you should be fine. Just bring your photo ID to check-in.

46

Andrew on December 5th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

Hey Erin! I was confirmed for the event when I signed up, but I had the wrong email on file and I can no longer access the old email. Can I still come to the event, or is my registration not valid anymore?

47

Jennifer from TX on December 8th, 2013 at 12:07 pm

Are there any sneak previews of the movie in the FtWorth TX area??

48

ryan on December 8th, 2013 at 11:30 pm

Hey guys! I’m fairly new here and i saw the confirmation page, but didn’t see a confirmation email.. is there a way to check to make sure I got on the list???

Thanks!

Kimberly on December 9th, 2013 at 10:37 am

Hi, I have to book public transportation today to attend this event tomorrow. Can you tell me an approximate time the event will end so I know when to schedule a ride home? Thank you!

 

Erin Glover on December 9th, 2013 at 6:55 pm

Kimberly – We should be done around 11 pm.

50

Martha on December 10th, 2013 at 11:46 am
