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!


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.

  • A great big THANK YOU to Erin and all who worked on this spectacular event. We couldn’t have been more pleased with getting the royal treatment to preview the wonderful movie. If I hadn’t been feeling well, I would have welcomed the cameras and shouted how AWESOME this movie was. I totally needed tissues at the end. The food was fabulous…the photo ops were great (My 6 yr old grandson with the sign of “Vote for Women” was the best) We hope to enjoy many more Disney Blog events and appreciate all the magic that you put into them. Thanks again!!!

  • What a great event. Thanks to Erin and the Parks Blog staff (as well as Walt Disney Pictures)!. Looking forward to the next one!

  • Erin – thank you so much for this event. It was magnificent! We had an awesome time. I’ve been looking forward to this movie since the summer and this was the perfect way to see it. Thanks for these special events!!! I hope to be able to attend more in the future!

  • This was such a fun event with photo ops w/characters, wonderful food, costume contest, special presentation by Stacia, and movie introduction by the Producer. And what a treat to see the movie early! All the CMs were wonderful. This is only the 2nd Disney Blog event I’ve been able to get in on and I feel fortunate to have been bored at work at 3pm last Wednesday!! Thank you for having this event. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The movie was amazing, as expected. But bring the tissues!!
