The other night I received one of those “jump up and down on the bed” kind of emails from Marshall Weinbaum inviting me to attend the latest blogger event in Los Angeles from November 2-5, 2014. In addition to writing for my own blog I also contribute Disney content at 5 Minutes for Mom so while in LA I will be representing them as well.
This is my second time attending a blogger event and to say I am excited is the understatement of the century. The first time I went on a blogger trip was for the Muppets Most Wanted, Captain America, and ABC TV Events. I had the best time, meet the nicest bloggers and made memories for a lifetime.
Let’s dive in and see what I will be doing on this blogger trip.
Big Hero 6
This trip is sure to be just as exciting as the last one because I will be walking the red carpet again for the premiere of Big Hero 6. The movie comes out on November 7th and I have already heard a lot of fantastic buzz about it. My daughter’s are really excited to see the movie too and we have watched all of the trailers.
But the fun (I mean work) doesn’t end there because after the movie I will get to attend the after party and it will be at the famous Hollywood restaurant Yamashiro. I attended the Muppets Most Wanted after party and it was amazing, I am still in awe of how fantastic it was.
I can’t wait to share all the awesome things I learn about the movie when I visit the Walt Disney Animation Studios where I will get the chance to interview the filmmakers, attend a drawing demonstration with animators (dream come true) and get a chance to voice a character from the film in a recording booth.
Um, no pressure on myself at all when I get to attend the drawing demonstration with animators, I went to Art School for a few years with the dream to be an animator. I will be so nervous.
ABC TV Event
“Dancing with the Stars”
I will also attend a live taping of “Dancing with the Stars” at the glamorous ballroom set! I have been watching Dancing with the Stars” since season 1, you could say I’m a super fan.
This is the part of the email in which I started to jump up and down on the bed. It was all fantastic but as I kept reading the email I couldn’t believe that a trip to the ballroom was in my future.
Afterwards, during dinner, I will be live tweeting during the West coast airing of the show and I’ve been told that a special guest might make an appearance. I am not picky, anyone from the show would be awesome…Bruno would be really awesome.
Here is a video of one of my favorite dances from this year of Alfonso & Whitney. Do you watch “Dancing with the Stars?” Who do you think is going to win this season?
I am excited to announce that I will be visiting the Walt Disney Studio Lot for special preview screening of “black-ish” and maybe a set tour.
I am a big fan of ABC TV and I’ve been watching their newest comedy show “black-ish.” Each show has been really funny and it reminds me of “Modern Family” where I know that when I tune there will be lots of laughs.
A new show by ABC TV is “Galavant” executive produced by Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love; Tangled; Cars). Also involved in the project is the award-winning musical duo of composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid; Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (Tangled). “Galavant” is a musical comedy fairytale that will be a mid-season replacement.
While at the Walt Disney Studio Lot I will also get to see a special preview screening of “Galavant”
But wait, there’s more. I feel like I am selling something on QVC.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter“
The awesomeness continues with ABC TV’s midseason show “Marvel’s Agent Carter“. I will be interviewing Agent Carter of Captain America fame actress Hayley Atwell. I will also get the chance to interview the Executive Producers Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas of Resurrection, another one of my favorite shows. Lastly, I will get to tour the set!!
There may be more details of the trip released in the coming weeks and I will update you if there is anything new.
Be sure to follow along with the fun on my Twitter and Instagram account.
