We’ll be celebrating the upcoming release of “Oz The Great and Powerful” when the “Journey to Oz Balloon Tour” floats into the Disneyland Resort on February 17. Part of a multi-city tour sponsored by HSN and IMAX Corporation, the tour kicks off February 12 from the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, Calif.


Before visiting the Disneyland Resort, the balloon tour will appear at the “Oz The Great and Powerful” premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on February 13. After it departs the Disneyland Resort, the tour will stop at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., on February 20 and at Central Park in New York City on March 5-6.

Fans can also unlock screenings of the film in cities near them through the “Journey to Oz Balloon Tour” app, which launches on Facebook.com/OzTheGreatAndPowerful on February 15. And don’t miss “Oz The Great and Powerful” when it opens in U.S. theaters and IMAX on March 8!


  • 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!

  • Thanks Fred!!

  • Evelyn–
    February 17.

  • Thanks for responding, Erin! You have made me very happy! I am SOOOOO excited!

  • whooo! which day will it be in Anaheim?

  • This is great! I can’t wait to see this movie and hopefully movie-franchise!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • And what about Walt Disney World?

    • Rodolfo – The only Florida stop will be Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., on February 20.

  • Love it !! Disney certainly knows how to do it up in a BIG WAY. Cannot wait to see this movie on Thursday.

  • Very cool! I’m looking forward to seeing the movie.

  • 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).

  • Will it be at the D23 screenings this week?

  • We are near Daytona FL. Will this event sale tickets or can just anyone show up to see the balloon?? Thanks!

    • You don’t have to purchase tickets, Vicky. Have fun!
