Disney's Pete's Dragon Movie Screening
A few days ago my family and I were invited to an exclusive advanced screening of Disney's Pete's Dragon at Walt Disney Worlds Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground . In line with the outdoor vibe of the movie, we were treated to a yummy bbq dinner, nature themed games for the kids and we were able to watch the film under the stars with dozens of other families.
During dinner, Donald Duck came by to hang out and take pictures with everyone. I wasn't sure how Grey was going to react since he was not into live characters a few months ago at the Disney Character Breakfast, but surprisingly, he was totally into it.
We also got to meet the star of the film, Oakes Fegley who did a phenomenal job in the movie! Oakes plays a boy named Pete who lives in the woods with his friend, a big green dragon named Elliot. A forest ranger named Grace runs across his path and is determined to find out more about this mysterious boy, and lots of action ensues from there.
Kenny and I weren't sure to expect but we both loved it, and so did Grey. There were parts of the movie where the audience collectively clapped, laughed and I may have teared up at a few parts. It's so good! If there is one movie to see as a family this summer, it's this one!
Pete's Dragon is now in theaters for your viewing pleasure. Here's a preview with just a bit of what we got to experience:
