Star Tours Meet-up Sells out fast, should Disney do more?

Earlier this morning, the Disney Parks Blog announced Walt Disney World’s first meet-up. On May 20th, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will hold a meet-up to celebrate the debut of the new Star Tours attraction. The event begins at 12:01am and lasts two hours.

Unfortunately, sign-ups filled up quickly. Within two hours of posting the event, registration closed. This success hopefully will lead WDW and possibly Disneyland to host more events in a similar fashion. Thomas Smith, Social Media Director of Disney Parks, tweeted that his staff is looking to plan more events for both parks. D23 has hosted exclusive insider events like this in the past, but this is the first meet-up organized by the parks themselves and open to any interested guests.

The Star Tours event will include:

  • An insider look at Star Tours – The Adventures Continue sharing behind the scenes details
  • The chance for guests to ask questions regarding the attraction’s creation
  • A few “surprises”

Were any of you lucky enough to snag a spot in the Star Tours meet-up?

    Disneyland hasn’t hosted a meet-up since October and I was lucky enough to go to four of the five they had. There’s one on Tuesday night which focuses on The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s UnderSea Adventure. But the sign up for that meet-up took a week, so of course many entries were submitted. And only 150 people were chosen, and they cold bring a guest. The previous meet-ups “sold-out” within two hours.

    I think it’s a great idea that Disney has these events to see what kind of fans are out there.

    I agree with you, Roger. These meet ups provide a great way for Disney fans to get together and celebrate a certain aspect of the parks. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to make it down to Orlando for one of them.
