D23 Announces Star Tours and Scavenger Hunt Events at Disneyland, Mixer at Walt Disney World
On Tuesday, July 20, D23 will be hosting a member mixer event at the House of Blues at Walt Disney World’s Downtown Disney West Side from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. The event is free for members and does not require tickets attend the event. Proof of membership is required and easy D23 member may bring up to three non-members as guests. Each D23 member attending the event will also receive a coupon good for 15% off merchandise at the House of Blues as well as a special gift.
As a west-coast counterpart to the Last Tour to Endor event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, D23 will be sponsoring a Final Flight event at the Disneyland Resort on July 26, 2010 from 10 pm – midnight. Tickets for the event are free and will become available online on a limited basis on July 14 at 10 am PT. Guests will check in at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney and receive a commemorative boarding pass for their trip as well as a strand of ‘intergalactic beads.’ Once the park has been cleared, event attendees will be led into Disneyland where they’ll get to be the very last to ride Star Tours before it closes until May, 2011 to re-open as Star Tours II. More information on the event can be found here.
Finally, on September 26, the day after the Destination D event ends, D23 will hold the Great Disney Scavenger Hunt throughout the Disneyland Resort. Teams of 2 – 4 players each will compete for prizes as they’re sent throughout the resort on their scavenger hunt (a digital camera is required). Only the leader for each team needs to register for the event which is open to non-D23 members as well. Registration for a D23 member team is $50 while registration for a non-member team is $75 and is available on a limited basis beginning July 12. For full details on the event, click here.
Destination D tickets will also become available online July 12 and will cost $125 per individual or can be bundled with a D23 Great Disney Scavenger Hunt team for $165. The full schedule for the two-day event can be found here.
