The sun is shining, the weather is getting warmer … it sure feels like summer! It’s time to party! Come celebrate with us at a BBQ in the happiest backyard on Earth … Disneyland park! Registration is now open for the Disney Parks Blog Summer BBQ Meet-Up on Friday, June 27, 2014.
Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Park

There’s so much to do at the Disneyland Resort this summer, so we’re giving Disney Parks Blog readers a peek at all the fun. We’ll start with a BBQ lunch inside Disneyland park – with some special friends, of course – then guests will have the opportunity to “play in the backyard” afterward. The best backyard in the world, that is!

So join us on Friday, June 27! 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.
  • Limit one guest per registrant.
  • Meet-up confirmations are non-transferrable and have no cash value.
  • Confirmation will be for the accepted registered person plus one guest.
  • Valid photo I.D. will be required at check-in.
  • Disneyland park admission will be provided beginning at noon for the event, but participants will be responsible for any parking fees.

I will give an update at the top of this post when capacity has been reached. Please note the event is subject to change or cancellation without notice.


  • Thank you for the wonderful time! I was a little disappointed with waiting in line 2+ hours since there were not enough artists for the 300+ people at this event. You guys were very respectful when I brought this to your attention and you fixed this issue right away for me. I hope you have more magical events like this one. My mother, boyfriend and I left the park very happy with wonderful memories, sketches and an awesome goodie bag with a mason cup and jelly beans! Yay!

  • Erin Glover: I was wondering if you have a wait list for this event? We will be in California at this time, (coming from Indiana) and would love to attend if possible. There are 4 of us.

  • Hi Erin, I signed up for this event but never got a confirmation email.

  • Can’t wait!! I’m bringing my niece, and she is sooooo excited. (So am I). 🙂

  • Thanks for this fun opportunity! So excited I got in!! I love summer and bbq’s so this one should be great especially as it is at the happiest place on earth!! See you there!!

  • Was this a free event?

    • There is no charge to attend any of our Disney Parks Blog meet-ups.

  • Thank you Erin
    Will keep a more watchful eye in the future 😉

  • Hi Erin
    I’m wondering how I missed this 😉 is the site updated throughout the day, or only in the morning?
    I read the blog when it shows in my email but somehow this slipped by. Darn
    Will there be more throughout summer?
    Thank you!!!!

    • Good question, Karen. We post to the Disney Parks Blog throughout the day. While the email updates are a fantastic way to keep up with what is shared, by the time you receive the email, opportunities like this may have already filled to capacity.

  • I need to check this blog more often during the day!

  • Can’t believe I totally missed it! I hope there’ll be more opportunities soon!

  • Missed the meet-up. Hopefully there is another soon!

  • I got in, never been to one of these before, do we get to stay in the park after as long as we want or are there certain hours only, any info will be helpful, thanks

    • Great question, Jeccica! After the BBQ inside Disneyland park, you are more than welcome to “play in the backyard” until it closes that evening at midnight!

  • Woo hoo! So excited to go 🙂

  • Hi Erin! I didn’t fill out my email correctly, but I have a confirmation number for this event! What should I do?

    • That’s great Bethany! Just be sure to bring your photo ID to check-in. See you there!
