We’ve just finalized plans for our next Disney Parks Blog Meet-Up and it’s one you’ll not want to miss. On November 2, 2014, we’re offering the opportunity to be part of a special preview screening of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Big Hero 6” at AMC Downtown Disney 24 at Walt Disney World Resort before it opens in U.S. theaters on November 7.


Our Disney Parks Blog Meet-Up begins at 11 a.m. EST (doors open at 10 a.m.) at AMC Downtown Disney 24 on Sunday, November 2, 2014. At the event, you’ll see “Big Hero 6,” which is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred.

Attendees of the Meet-Up will also get the opportunity to meet-and-greet “Big Hero 6” characters Hiro and Baymax before they debut for guests in the park.

  • Had a great time at the Meet-Up and loved Big Hero 6. But now, I’m going nuts trying to figure out how to get the complimentary download from Photopass of our moment with Hiro & Baymax. It just keeps wanting to charge $14.95 for the download. I’ve tried most everything including following the instructions on the card we were given. I can view the photos, but don’t see anything where the download is complimentary. Still had a great time at the event, though.

  • Thank you so much for hosting such an amazing event. My son Blase and I came to the event and we both loved the movie so much! It was awesome to get to meet the characters!

  • Please create a list of those that have already attended several meet-ups to give those that work the day shift a chance to respond before it fills up.

  • Wow, I RSVPed to the email address yesterday at 11:16 AM and didn’t make the list. A bummer, but maybe next time!

  • well I am getting closer to making the list for special events, saw this post and that it was at W.D.W. and a few hours later saw the event for Disneyland but by then it was full … again ! Must be a way to give everyone a chance to enjoy these events.

  • Since we can’t bring in cameras, will you have a Photopass photographer for the Hiro & Baymax meet and greet?

    • Hi Kim, you’ll have the opportunity to get your phone/cam before the meet and greet. And we will also have a photographer there. Thanks.

  • missed. My son has been talking constantly about going to see big hero six. He has autism and is obsessed. Even draws Baymax everyday. 🙁

  • I would be awesome if ONCE one of these sign-ups were offered on a weekend when a lot of people aren’t at work and not able to constantly monitor this blog or twitter for it to pop up…or leave the registration window open longer and make it a drawing.

  • Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 AM on the 2nd, so 11a EST would be correct.

  • I can’t believe this filled up so fast. Just now saw it and will actually be in Disney on the dates of this. Oh well.

  • Any idea if something similar will be happening at the Disneyland Resort in California?

  • I would hope that it starts at 11 a.m. EDT instead of 11 a.m. EST so people don’t have do convert from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time

  • Love this “Big” hero, can’t wait to see the movie! His eyes tell the story of a wonderful friend!

  • I really hope I got in! My brother and i have been looking forward to this for the past two months!

  • Do the character meets start at 10 (when doors open) or 11, the start of the event?

  • Sweet!!!
