ElecTRONica at Disney California Adventure Park

We’ve had a lot of fun with meet-ups for Toy Story Mania and “World of Color,” and we’ve received some great comments from fans who liked the events. I’ve spoken with many of you and the one request I’ve heard over and over is: “Do more and include more people!” I’ve also noticed that a lot of you are excited about the upcoming Disney film, “TRON: Legacy” and the new ElecTRONica experience at Disney California Adventure park.

So, today, I’m announcing a meet-up on October 28, 2010, for 3000 people at ElecTRONica (that’s 1500 RSVPs each valid for 2 people). Given the large amount of attendees, this will certainly be different from the first two.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Access to Disney California Adventure park at 4 p.m. and exclusive access to an after-hours ElecTRONica experience from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on October 28. (The Park closes at 8 p.m. on October 28, and ElecTRONica normally runs on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays each week).
  • Opportunity to come decked out in your best TRON or TRON-inspired costume at this special event.
  • Signing opportunity with screenwriters for “TRON: Legacy,” Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. (This will be limited to 200 people. You may sign up for this opportunity when you check-in for the event on October 28).
  • Opportunity to view select props and concept art from “TRON: Legacy.”
  • Commemorative Flynn’s Arcade coin made just for attendees of this meet-up.

To attend, RSVP to meetups@disney.go.com and follow these directions carefully:

  • All guests who RSVP for the event must be 18 years or older, but your guest does not need to be 18.
  • Valid RSVPs must include 1) “ElecTRONica Meet-Up RSVP” in the subject line and 2) your name in the body of the email. All RSVPs will be for the person who responds plus one guest.
  • Valid photo I.D. will be required at check-in.

We will send an email to those who send their valid RSVP before we reach capacity to confirm their attendance for October 28. Depending on your email settings, you may not receive the confirmation email, so we recommend that you also check the list of attendees on the Disney Parks Blog. We will give an update at the top of this post that will include a link to the list of names of all confirmed attendees. If you do not receive an email from us confirming your reservation and your name does not appear on the list of attendees, your RSVP was not accepted.

Please note the event is subject to change or cancellation.

I’m really excited about the event, and I look forward to meeting a lot more of you on October 28.

  • Hi Heather sorry to bother… I sent my email this morning since I did not recieve my confirmation last night and still have not heard back they mispelled my name on the attendees list could that be the issue just want to make sure this will not be a problem and we can still attend this special event 🙂 !!! Thank you so much and look forward to hearing from you soon!!!

  • Well, something has come up and I will not be able to attend this meet-up.
    I sent an e-mail to meetups@disney.go.com telling them to remove my name from the list so someone else can have a chance.

    Still, thanks again for the opportunity, and I’m looking forward to future meet-ups.

  • how much is it going to cost to get in tonight?

  • Heather,
    Thank you for organizing this! I was lucky enough to get a confirmation RSVP (yay me!) I have a 13 month old baby, my question is whether she would count as my guest or if I could bring the baby and someone else as my guest. Thank you!

  • I want to attend, please, is it too late?

  • Heather,
    Will the trams be running at 11pm to take people back to the Mickey & Friends parking structure or will we have to walk?

    P.s. Thanks for the opportunity, this seems like it will be A LOT of fun!

    • Trams will be running until midnight to take people back to Mickey & Friends parking structure.

  • Heather,

    On the park schedule it shows World of Color at 8:15pm. Would we be able to catch World of Color and still attend the ElecTRONica event?

  • On your list of confirmed attendees my name is misspelled. Will that be problem? its spelled Sonio instead of Sonia. I did receive the conformation email.

    • You’re fine and confirmed.

  • Hi Heather,

    I was wondering if you could let me know how long the turn around time is for an email response from the meetups@disney.go.com address. My name is on the list, but I haven’t received a confirmation — so I took the next step and emailed you guys back. I’ve just added the email to my address book, and I checked my spam mail as well — still nothing.

    Thanks so much, can’t wait to hear from you guys!
    Tiffany

  • Aww, please show the Tron Legacy movie preview!!!

  • Is it too late to respond? any cancellations to the Electronica event?

  • Heather, please help. My friend Michele Lee’s iPhone made a tiny typo because of auto-correct but was one of the first to reply at 10:08am and only realized about the error now – she’s SO bummed that she can’t go! She typed “Electronics meet-up…” instead of “ElecTRONica” Is there any way that you can add her to the list? Please??

  • Hi Heather.
    I’m so excited for this.
    I have been trying to get on the list for every event you have had.
    I’m flying in from Colorado and my sister is flying in from Seattle to be my guest.

  • Hello Heather!

    I would like to know how late will the trams run this night to the Mickey & Friends parking structure? Will it be the normal running time or different because of the event? I’m looking forward to attend this event and to meet you too. Many thanks! 🙂

  • I have added as a contact as well hope to hear from the team soon 🙂

  • I’m super excited to go! My boyfriend and I both got on the list, so we’re taking some friends from out of state who have never experienced the magic of Disneyland/DCA before! Super excited! (Turns out my mom found out about the meet-up and sent in an email too. She also made it. A little awkward, but it’s okay.)

  • Ive added your email to my contacts, hopefully this will help. I also have an alternate address if necessary

  • THANKS HEATHER!!!! (hope I can see ya to get a blog pin)

  • is it free if you got selected?

  • Heather,
    Thanks again…I as well do not want to be a nuisance. However
    will we be ok to get in if I have an old ID…I just lost my CA one and have my old AZ one or should I give you the name of my guest? I also am an AP member, have a bank card with my name and photo…
    Please reply
    Geoffrey

    • Your Arizona ID or AP pass will be fine.

  • w00t! me and my GF both have matching tron shirts =P … see you all there!

  • do i have to pay for my parking or is parking going to be free like it was for the CHOC event this part sunday?

    • Parking is not included.

  • Thanks for the invite!! I’m excited to attend ElecTRONica!!! On your list of confirmed attendees my name is misspelled. Will that be problem? its spelled Sonio instead of Sonia.

  • Hi Heather, i’m on the list Javier, didnt get an email and my sister Juliana is not on the list but she got an email, can you verify my sister, thanks

  • Howdy, Howdy, Howdy, Heather…

    and what of the people canceling and/or declining their invite? will more people be notified to accommodate those extra spots?

    what if i say please? 😉

    • When we are notified of cancellations, we will do our best to extend the invite to additional people.

  • Heather if we check in early are we able to catch the World of Color show then head off to the event?

    • Yes

  • Could the tickets given on Thursday to annual passholders be used the next day by others who do not have AP?

  • I’m so excited the 29th is my Birthday so this will be a great way to kick off my B-Day weekend. Thanks Heather & Disneyland Resort 🙂

  • Hello Heather, WhooHoo! I got in! This is my first Meet up event. I have a couple of questions. 1) Will there be a schedule of events during the meet up? Or will we be free to walk around the elecTRONica area. 2) Will the rest of DCA still be open to the 3000 guests? or will the rest of the park remain closed and the guest will have to stay in the elecTRONica area.

  • will other california adventure attractions be avaliable during the event? and i’m assuming their will be no world of color?

  • Hi Heather,

    Sorry to be a nuisance but I didn’t get an answer to my question. Tron Day is also on the 28th where 23 minutes of footage will be shown in theaters. Will this footage be aired during the Meet-Up event?

    Thanks!

  • I got in! I have 2 questions though:

    Will Laserman be there?

    Is the 1,500 the total number of people going, or the total amount of people who can then bring a second person as a guest? I thought this was an exclusive meet-up, so I’m rather surprised that there’s a possibility that 3,000 people will all be smushed into Electronica at the same time…

    • LASERMAN is scheduled to perform that night. There are 1500 RSVPs for a total of 3000 people.

  • My friend used one of my spare emails to send his name in for the meet up and put his name in the body part but for some reason it used my name instead of his so my name is actually on the list twice. i was wondering if we could switch out one of the copies of my name for his?

  • Hello Heather,

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity I am so excited…I have checked the list of attendees and I was one there but have yet to receive a confirmation email when may we expect this? Thank you so much once more and look forward from hearing from you and the team!!!

  • So I won this contest in order to take my best friend (HUGE TRON FAN!) but found out I can not go that night… Is there any way I could change the name on the reservation so that he can go andt take another friend with him in my stead????

    Thank You!

    • We cannot change names.

  • If you didnt send it your guest’s name in the email, can you still bring a guest?

    • Each RSVP is good for two people. You did not need to provide the name of your guest.

  • Thank you so much for the opportunity Heather! Unfortunately, I am unable to attend this meetup because of an unforeseen circumstance and I’m super sad to miss out. However, I was wondering if you could take my name off the list and give someone who can attend my spot! Thanks so much again ans hopefully see you at another event.

    Katie

    • Please email us with your full name and we’ll remove you from list.

  • Heather, will there be a showing of World of Color on that night? Thanks

    • Yes, there will be a “World of Color” show on October 28.

  • You spelled my name wrong on the list

  • Heather, How do you pick those attending? Just curious because I emailed right away after 10am. Was just curious how to get into one of these things since I never get picked.

  • Woohoo, my name made the list, so awesome, thank you! I have not yet received a confirmation email but am holding off on sending you guys an email about that because I don’t know if you guys have gotten through emailing everyone back yet.

    Heather, could you let us know when you guys have finished emailing everyone the confirmations so that those of us who have not received anything yet, can email you? Thanks!

    • It’s possible you have not received the email due to your email settings. Please add meetups@disney.go.com as one of your contacts, email us and we’ll resend the confirmation email.

  • Hi there! Question. Since it is also Tron Day

    Will the 23 minute preview of Tron: Legacy be shown that night?

    Thanks!

    • Good question. The extended length preview for “TRON: Legacy” will not be shown at this event.

  • Could the tickets given to annual passholder for the 28th be used another day? Like for the World of Color Meet-up.

    • The tickets for Disney California Adventure are only valid on October 28.

  • I am so bummed! Apparently I did something wrong 🙁 yet I helped my sister enter and she won??? It would have been the perfect ending to my vacation! Phooeyyy!!!!

  • The name on my ID is different than the name I gave you because my ID has my maiden name on it. May I please give you the other name so I don’t run into problems please?

  • Hi I was confirmed as a person going to the meet up but I have a question. I want to bring my fiancé as my guest. We also have a small child. I believe he still gets into the park for free because of his age. Can he come with us or is it just me and a guest?

    • If the child does not ordinarily require a ticket to the Parks, then he or she can come and not count as your guest.

  • Actually nevermind 🙂

  • Is there any way to change the name on the RSVP list?

  • Just got the email! We are looking forward to another meet up!

  • Heather, I have a question it may not be a big deal but I want to make sure =). My sister is on the list to go to the meet up but in the excitement we put her name as Gina not Regina is that going to cause a problem when you check her ID against the list?

    • This will be fine.
