The Journey to Oz #DisneyOz

Disney’s “Oz The Great and Powerful” is coming into theaters on March 8, 2013. In anticipation of the movie release, the HSN and the IMAX Corporation are sponsoring the “Journey to Oz Balloon Tour.” On Valentine’s Day, I made a trip to Pasadena, at the Langham Huntington Hotel, for a chance to see the balloon.

I followed the yellow brick road that led the way toward the spectacular hot air balloon. The balloon was one of the most breathtaking spectacles I have ever seen. It was bright, bold and powerful just like I anticipate the movie to be. It took a large crew of men to hold down the balloon while multiple television stations filmed segments in front of it. The “Journey to Oz Balloon Tour” will be making stops across the Country leading up to the release of the movie on March 8, 2013.

After spending some time mesmerized by the balloon, I went inside to watch a fun and interactive magic show. The magician did some jaw dropping tricks that left the audience bewildered on how he was able to read minds, make things disappear and then re-appear.

Stay tuned as we will be sharing all about the upcoming film in the upcoming weeks!
