Disney Parks Blog Fans Have a Blast at ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Meet-Up at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on August 1st, 2014 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager

While the film “Guardians of the Galaxy” officially opens in theaters today, more than 500 Disney Parks Blog readers were just treated to a sneak preview of the film at Downtown Disney this past weekend.

The movie is an action-packed space adventure in which Peter Quill (a.k.a. Star-Lord) finds himself the target of a bounty hunter after stealing a mysterious orb. Quill is forced into a partnership with a quartet of misfits for one last, desperate stand — with the fate of the entire galaxy hanging in the balance.


To celebrate their early viewing, many of our guests arrived at the theater dressed up as their favorite Super Hero, with several fans sporting homemade costumes inspired by “Guardians of the Galaxy” characters. (Check out this great one above).


Before heading into the film, our guests were given collectible “Guardians of the Galaxy” 3D glasses, with each pair inspired by a different “Guardians” character. After the film ended, we surprised each attendee with a collectible “Guardians of the Galaxy” toy. Fun!

Check out the video above for highlights from our latest meet-up.

How do we find out about special screenings like this? I didn’t see anything posted on the blog here about it. Is this something separate I have to subscribe to? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I am just checking back to see if there was a reply to my previous question about finding out when these special events take place. Can anyone help out with this? I see pics and postings about these but never see invites or anything else.
