As far as we’re concerned, impatience is a virtue. Yesterday we reported that we believed Walt Disney World would be offering free, pre-release screenings of Walt Disney Studios’ John Carter. Thanks to activity on the wdwscreeningtickets.com website, we are now able to confirm that the screenings will in fact be taking place and will be offered exclusively to passholders.
The screenings will take place at the Premier Theatre at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (the site notes valid theme park admission is required, but.. uh, it’s a passholder event) on the weekend of March 3 and 4. Showtimes will be at 10 am, 2 pm and 6 pm each day. Space is limited and registration for the event will only take place online. The film, which is rated PG-13 by the MPAA, will be shown in 3D.
Based on the registration process, guests of passholders are not allowed. This means not only does each passholder in a family must register independently, but that due to capacity issues, families risk not all being able to sign up for the same screening. Registration appears to be fully functional and produces a PDF voucher, but it does not officially open until February 1, so we advise to wait until then (or an official announcement from Disney Parks) to register for your best chance to attend.
