    Princess and the Frog is a definite for me!

    I would like to do the Studio tour this time around, but with the signups on thursday, september 17 @ 10am being a class hour for me, I have no idea if I can.

    Disney and Dickens also sounds good.

    I may do the Mary Poppins event if the finances permit me to.

      They've been running commercials for the Princess & The Frog showings at the studios, with the same "experience" following. Looks like it's running to the public (for $$) for at least 2.5 weeks with four showings a day. Not really "Members Only" as advertised. Just that one specific night.

        Wait. I just called asking for tickets and they were asking for $50 a ticket with no limitations. I don't think the reservation team is quite aware of this plan yet because online it says limited to one ticket and one guest.

        I did not take it. I will try calling again later (if the D23 Crew is reading this, PLEASE OH PLEASE post clarification on your website about this whether its free or not).

        UPDATE/CLARIFICATION: Called again and another CM I talked to gave me more details but once again repeated the $50 price and looks like my facebook comment to them fixed their website.

          There will be both public and D23 events at the Studios for Princess and the Frog - both are $50 per seat. However, the D23 event will be limited to just D23 members, will include refreshments and certain surprises (think UP event) that will not be included with the regular public event. So the D23 event is a souped-up version of the public event.

            Are you certain about that? Because the public event also advertises starting november 25th also, so I'm thinking that it's going to be a mix of both crowds.

              Makes the most sense as the event is not billed as an exclusive, private screening for D23. The studio's theatre is not much bigger than a medium-sized theatre at any megaplex and nowhere near the size of the El Cap. It's a very special & memorable experience seeing a film there!

              The film's Exclusive Engagement runs 11/25-12/13 in L.A. & NY, showtimes on the WDS lot for Wednesday 11/25 are 10A, 1P, 4P, 7P & 9:30P

                Re: D23 Fall Events Schedule

                Do you think D23 will start charging money for all their events? I'm really sad about this, but I can understand why they did. Probably a combination of all the complaining from D23 members that didn't get into the free events and that it costs a lost of money to host these things.

                I was really excited about the Princess and the Frog event (one of the tour guides on the studio tour accidentally let it leak), but I honestly don't have an extra $50 (especially after the expo and booking a hotel in San Fran for the museum preview). But I know I'll end up biting the bullet anyway and eat spaghetti for a week .

                    I just joined D23 and really would like to do the studio tour. How do you try for the tickets? Is there a phone number you call? Online ordering?

                    Thanks for your help!

                        $50 a seat to see The Princess & The Frog???

                        I was really excited at first...wow, that's 3 days before my birthday! Then I saw the price. I was expecting a free event like the UP! screening.

                        That's some 'member exclusive' all right.

                          In the past, it's been online ordering process. It's not a pretty process, but I doubt they'll change it. If you joined just to do the studio tour, good luck. There are only 100 spots, and if each member brings one guests, that drops down to availability to only 50 members.

                            Well, and the fact that it's not even a discount on the public price is galling. I guess the freebies might be nice, but, gee, I thought $50 for 2 reserved seats at the El Capitan was expensive - $50 EACH just to be on the lot is too rich for my blood!
