Thank you to Disney for sending me out to LA for the Ralph Breaks the Internet Event! All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
My family spends lots of time down at Walt Disney World, and this last trip we were really close to checking out The VOID. It was a Star Wars virtual reality experience and we would have gone for sure if our daughters were old enough. So imagine how excited I was when I found out during the Ralph Breaks The Internet Event we would be checking out the new Ralph themed experience! It was all I could have hoped for and more, and now I can’t wait to take my girls and husband to experience it soon. Ralph Breaks VR launches November 21st, along with the movie, and pre-sale tickets are available now.
Immersed in a New World
This was hands down one of the coolest experiences of my life. When you do something like this, you are literally in the story. I was able to touch walls, smell what I was seeing, and even felt heat when I was by a “fire”. Something that everyone is sure to love is that you can choose your very own character when you are entering. I picked a cute yellow girl, but my friend Tania picked a purple man with a mustache. Every time she talked and I saw it moving, I couldn’t help but laugh. One of my favorite things to do was give my friends high-fives. It was so surreal to see my arm and hand as a netizen.
If you think the trailer looks cool, then just you wait! Somehow it is even better than they let on. I promise you, this is something you want to take the whole family to. Just check out my reaction to the trailer.
The Story Line
I am not going to give much away, I promise, but I am going to let you in on a little bit of the fun. First of all, this VR story line will not ruin any of the movie. So if you are able to head to The VOID before heading to theaters, don’t worry, nothing will be spoiled for you. It is it’s own story line where Ralph and Vanellope take you in to the internet to show you a fun video game. Of course, not everything goes according to plan, resulting in a LOT of fun! Hint: They do keep score, and there is a leaderboard, and a winner – so keep your eyes peeled and stay smart!
In teams of 4, guests will break into the internet with Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz disguised as characters from the film called “Netizens” to play the newest, coolest video game ever. Ralph Breaks VR introduces two brand new locations, Dunderdome and Pancake Milkshake Diner, and a new antagonist, B.E.V. voiced by writer Pamela Ribon, which stands for “Built to Eradicate Viruses.” You read that right, Pancake Milkshake Diner. I am sure you know some lovable new characters you might come across, but they won’t be as lovable as you might hope!
You can visit The VOID at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Vegas, Glendale, CA, West Plano, Texas, and a few other places. Check out all the locations and then make plans to visit one! You will love it.

About Ralph Breaks The Internet
In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” video-game bad guy Ralph and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet – the Netizens – to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss, the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank, a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces – so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.
