An exclusive Disney event completely sold out in minutes, leaving thousands of expecting Guests out of the experience.

It is no secret that Walt Disney World has consistently seen its crowds grow exponentially since the Orlando theme park reopened in 2020. Disneyland Paris and Disneyland Resort have seen a similar increase in their attendance, respectively, making the Parks reach high wait times and affecting Guests’ experiences while visiting the Disney Parks.

This increase in attendance has extended to the exclusive Disney events that take place at the Parks, including Oogie Boogie Bash at Disneyland Resort, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World Resort, with tickets to these experiences selling out in under 24 hours. A recently announced Disney event was not the exception, as Disney had to share an official update just 30 minutes after registration for the experience opened.

Disney Parks (@DisneyParks) shared the announcement of an exclusive event coming soon to Disney Springs, inviting fans to register on the Disney Parks Blog website for a chance to attend Disney World’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Opening Night Event at Disney Springs.

This special opening night viewing of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will take place on November 10, 2022, at the AMC Disney Springs 24 theater in Disney Springs. While this special meet-up sounds exciting, especially for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the experience had limited availability, allowing a controlled number of registrants and one Guest to attend the meet-up.

Due to the high popularity of the film, and the thousands of fans eager to journey back to the legendary country of Wakanda, available registration spots for this exclusive event flew in a matter of minutes, as Disney Parks (@DisneyParks) shared an update barely 30 minutes after the initial announcement, commenting that the entry period for this event had closed.

UPDATE: The entry period for this event has closed. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future opportunities!

Disney didn’t state the number of spots available for this event, but clearly, the demand to attend the opening night event was extremely high.

Disney Parks Blog shared a synopsis of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which reads:

Following the wake of King T’Challa’s death, Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye, and the Dora Milaje fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers. Together, our heroes must embrace their next chapter and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige and Nate Moore.
