Last week, I was able to attend the ElecTRONica Meet-up at California Adventure! It was another one of those... send-in-an-email-and-cross-your-fingers-as-you-hope-to-be-selected type of dealios. And thanks to the lovely people at Disney Blogs and my friend for posting about it on Facebook, I was able to get on the guest list! Yay! I love free and unexpected things! <3
I was allowed to bring one guest so I brought none other than my mommy. It was her birthday after all! And what's better than going to California Adventure for free on your birthday? (Well... except maybe going to Disneyland :P)
We were free to roam about the park before the event started so we went on a few of the rides and caught the A-MAY-ZING World of Color water show. The Bellagio ain't got nothing on World of Color, baby! I was a bit sad that we weren't able to see the show from the front, but even from the side, the show was spectacular! You can always count on Disney to never disappoint!
Inside, there was a live DJ mixing the latest hits and a giant area for dancing. Not to mention, there was an "End of Line Club," where you can purchase a "Glowito" (a mojito with a glowing ice cube), a "Digitini" (martini), and beer. It was like an outdoor clubbing event!
Further in the Backlot, you can enter a replica of Flynn's Arcade and even play some old school games. Outside the arcade was the modern game area, where guests could play the new Tron: Legacy game on Wii and Xbox.
As a person new to the world of TRON, I had a blast! You, too, can experience ElecTRONica! It happens every weekend (Friday-Sunday) until April and will run every night during the weeks of the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year's holiday. TRON: Legacy comes out December 17 and I have a feeling it'll promote the same cult-like following as the original 1982 TRON movie.
