Poreotics Dance Crew Back at ElecTRONica December 1

posted on November 29th, 2010 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


Attention Poreotics fans! On December 1, ElecTRONica will open the portal to welcome back dance crew sensation Poreotics for a special Wednesday night performance.

Last week, ElecTRONica was taken by storm when the exceptionally talented crew of young men brought their unique moves to the Hollywood Backlot Stage. Crowds screamed as the dance crew charged up the Grid and fused their own moves with the look and theme of “TRON: Legacy”— exclusively for Disney California Adventure park. If you didn’t have a chance to see them, here’s a quick video of Poreotics in action.

The shaded showmen’s performances at ElecTRONica were such a highlight that we’re excited to announce they’re returning for a special night of ElecTRONica on Wednesday night.

So, for fans of Poreotics (MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew Season 5 Winners) or for those looking for something uniquely entertaining this season…save this date! Be there Wednesday, December 1, for one more chance to experience the fun, humor, popping and robotic movement that is Poreotics — LIVE at ElecTRONica, only at Disney California Adventure park.

The ‘TRONolith:’ Nerve Center and Power Source of ElecTRONica

posted on November 19th, 2010 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


Bringing the beat to the heart of Tron City is what’s known as the “TRONolith” – the giant nerve center and power source for the entire Grid. Each night, our ElecTRONica DJs stand watch from the TRONolith to charge up the action and generate excitement with pulsating music and non-stop energy throughout this new nighttime experience.

Here’s a peek at the TRONolith in the center of the photo with emanating lasers and cool geometric streaks of orange light while Programs and Sirens dance below.

“TRONolith”

Travel through this digital world and you’ll discover all that the Grid has to offer. Look one way and Laserman is lighting up the night, look the other way and you’ll see “Programs” just like you, re-fueling and re-energizing at the End of Line Club. You’ll also see Sirens and Servers inviting other Programs to get on the dance floor and get their TRON on. As the Grid comes alive, the energy becomes electric.

Join us every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night to feel the power for yourself. The Portal is open. Experience the energy, sights, and sounds that activate ElecTRONica.

Prepare to be digitized!

Poreotics Dance Crew Will Make a Special Appearance at ElecTRONica

posted on November 11th, 2010 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


Local dance crew sensation, and the winner of Season 5’s “America’s Best Dance Crew” on MTV, Poreotics, will bring their fiercely entertaining mixed dance style to ElecTRONica, November 21 to 24.

Poreotics Dance Crew

The dance crew champions have won over the nation with their distinctive style: an integration of unexpected humor with incredible popping and robotic movements. This November, these shades-wearing showmen will bring their fantastic animated moves and unique humor to an all-new TRON themed performance, created exclusively for ElecTRONica.

The name “Poreotics” comes from their unique style and showmanship: popping choreography robotics. I think that’s pretty cool.

Poreotics will perform two sets a night on the Hollywood Pictures Backlot stage as part of an already full night of entertainment inside the Grid. Check this crew out, only during ElecTRONica at Disney California Adventure park. See you there!

‘TRON: Legacy’ Light Cycle Arrives at ElecTRONica

posted on November 10th, 2010 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


Something new has arrived at ElecTRONica in the form of … a Light Cycle.

Full-Scale Model of a Light Cycle from Disney’s Newest Film “TRON: Legacy”

That’s right! An amazing, full-scale model of a Light Cycle from Disney’s newest film “TRON: Legacy” will be featured inside the Grid of ElecTRONica starting Friday, November 12.

After making stops at San Diego’s Comic-Con and LA’s E3 Expo, the vehicle is here! As guests make their way to experience the “TRON: Legacy Exclusive 3D Sneak Peek,” the Light Cycle— an awesome replica of the bike that Sam Flynn rides in the movie— will be prominently on display. Take a picture or just take it in. Either way, this is very cool!

ElecTRONica runs Friday, Saturdays, Sundays and select holiday weeks only at Disney California Adventure park.

Relax and Re-energize in the Heart of Tron City at the End of Line Club at ElecTRONica

posted on October 18th, 2010 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


End of Line Club

After being digitized and released into the Grid, a Program (a.k.a. one of our guests) often feels the need to re-charge. Don’t worry; ElecTRONica has been pre-programmed with refreshment choices to help you “battle” your thirst.

Just inside the portal as you enter the Grid, you will find a glowing refreshment station complete with drinks and snacks. But if you want to relax and re-energize in the heart of Tron City, you’ll want to head to the End of Line Club.

This ultra modern lounge is the perfect spot to get together and quench your thirst with an icy Coke Zero or Laser Light Lemonade. If desired, Programs of 21 years or more can select from a menu of our themed adult beverages.

For the hungry Program, I suggest you hit up our nearby catering truck. Delicious nachos, chocolate desserts and nourishing ‘bytes.’…That’s right, I went there…are being served up for you to dine on while you take in the pulsating music and electric atmosphere.

The End of Line Club is located just steps away from Flynn’s Arcade, the TRON: Evolution game stations, as well as the main stage which features Laserman and other electrifying performances.

Enter the Grid and join us at the End of Line Club only during ElecTRONica and only at Disney California Adventure park.

Catapult Back to 1982 at Flynn’s Arcade at ElecTRONica

posted on October 7th, 2010 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


So, I posted a question last week: what do aliens, gorillas, and bugs all have in common? What if I asked what do Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, and Centipede all have in common? Would that help?

Well, peg those jeans, crimp that hair, and get ready to take a trip back to 1982. Because the answer to the question lies within the doors of Flynn’s Arcade. Yes, before you know it, you’ll be playing TRON and other classic 80s arcade games all night long!

Very soon, guests will have a chance to relive the days when PAC-MAN was king as our incredibly talented Imagineers at Walt Disney Imagineering have recreated Flynn’s Arcade from the upcoming film “TRON: Legacy” — exclusively for ElecTRONica at Disney California Adventure park.

Flynn’s Arcade, of course, was owned by Jeff Bridges’ character Kevin Flynn and was first seen in the original “TRON” film. Since Kevin Flynn’s disappearance in the late 80s, this fictional arcade has been boarded up and powered down…until now!

Here’s something else for you, since all the games in Flynn’s Arcade will require token use, we thought we would give you a look at how the game token went from concept and design…

to the actual token itself.

Flynn's Arcade Token

Pretty cool, huh? Once you get your token, you can use it or keep it. It’s up to you!

That’s all for now, but don’t forget ElecTRONica opens October 8 and runs Friday through Sunday this fall, and select holiday weeks from 6:00 p.m. to Park close, only at Disney California Adventure park. See you there!
