As a member of Disney’s Official Fan Club, D23, special events are held around the country from time-to-time for members. Fortunately enough, I live in the Atlanta area and was able to attend D23’s “Incredible” Mixer at our local Shop Disney store yesterday and it was definitely incredible! The event was created to celebrate the premiere of the “Incredibles 2” coming out later this week.
First off the event started at 11 am, an hour before the store officially opens to the public so we had the entire store to ourselves! And, since it was in the morning, breakfast was provided including breakfast sandwiches, bagels, orange juice, and coffee.
After guests received a bite to eat, it was time for some “Incredible” games! Guests were invited to break up into teams and compete in a series of games. The first was some “Incredibles” trivia. Then, we got to play “hot potato” Instead of using an actual potato though, we used a Jack-Jack doll. Next up was a dance competition and followed by a game of who can pick up the toys the fastest. For the last games, all teams came together to unscramble a mystery phrase.
After the games were over, it was time to do some shopping! In addition to being able to take advantage of the current Twice Upon a Season Sale, we received an additional 20% off our purchases. I was able to purchase a whole bag of Shop Disney merchandise including time-relevant items like bathing suits and beach towels for the kids for just $60! (Even without the 20% discount, the sale prices were “Incredible!”)
All D23 Members were given an “Incredibles 2” swag bag which included a D23 cooler and “Incredibles 2” sunglasses. Additionally, each guest received a pass for two to see a Disney, Star Wars, or Marvel movie between now and the end of September for free!
But, I have to say, one of the best parts of D23’s “Incredible” Mixer in Atlanta was being able to meet and chat with some of our readers! It was great meeting you all!
