I live a few blocks from Whimsic Alley! Wish I could join the festivites at The Bridge, but I already got tix to see the 12:01 at Grauman's Chinese (this despite the fact that I already saw HBP on Saturday morning thanks to a Warner Bros. employee screening). Yep, I am seeing it again already! It is THAT good.Avatar ImageHagiographer13 says: I am going there and didn't even know--woohoo!Avatar Imagecoweatyou says: Looks like I'm going to be making a 2 hour drive today. I hope there isn't traffic.Avatar ImagePINGisinGRYFFINDOR says: I am going to the midnight Screen of the HBP at Disneyland!! I'm soooooo excited!!..... =o)Avatar ImageAveryfan says: This sounds like so much fun! There's a HUUUUUGGGEEE mural of HBP on the side of this mall that faces the 405 freeway. I've often passed it and thought it would be cool to watch the movie there.. One caveat to those visiting it for the first time: Parking SUCKS! I don't know if they're going to do something special for the event, but they don't validate, so be prepared to spend some money on parking. It would definitely be a good idea to carpool.Avatar Imagericzhang says: I'm in Canada but at least I get to go to the Midnight show and have a party at my friend's place.Avatar Imagewormywyrm says: My girlfriend and I are going to come to this, but where exactly is it??
