I have been working on my bucket list over the past year or so and one of the items at the top of my to do list is to ride in a hot air balloon. I can only imagine how exhilarating that would be to float high up in the sky and see the world standing still below. Hopefully it won’t be long until I get to check this one off the list.
Disney just recently announced the “Journey to Oz Balloon Tour,” which is sponsored by the HSN and IMAX Corporation, in support of its upcoming fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” which opens in U.S. theaters and IMAX® on March 8, 2013. You know I’m gonna be seeing this one opening day! The colorful, “Oz The Great and Powerful”–emblazoned hot-air balloon began its tour this morning from the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, Calif. Stops for the “Journey to Oz Balloon Tour” to date include:
· “Oz The Great and Powerful” premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood (February 13)
· Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. (February 17)
· Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. (February 20)
· Central Park in New York City (March 5 & 6)
Also be sure to mark your calendars because on February 15, the “Journey to Oz Balloon Tour” app will go live on the official Facebook page for the film (facebook.com/OzTheGreatAndPowerful). On this date fans will have the opportunity to unlock screenings in cities near them. Users will vote by Tweeting with a custom hashtag for their city (e.g. #DisneyOzSeattle) or by sharing on Facebook.
