I Am Going To Hollywood With Disney!

For a gal who would realistically live at Disney if she could, an invitation from Disney to travel across country to LA for a Disney red carpet premier is priceless. A second invitation to do it all over again a year later is like a fantasy. And yet, it happened! I greeted Disney’s invitation to attend the red carpet premiere of Frankenweenie with a loud squeal of delight. Upon calling husband, and shrieking in his ear, he assured me we’d figure out all of the details and make it work.

Then reality set in – my parents are also traveling to LA that week for work, and I already have plans for that weekend to attend my BFF’s baby shower in South Florida. Could I really make a cross-country trip work?

Yes! When an opportunity like this presents itself, the answer is always YES!

So I am headed to Hollywood September 25. My mother-in-law has graciously accepted the challenge of watching both girls, and my friends have stepped up and offered to shuttle my oldest to-and-fro from school and ballet. As for the baby shower, I am still going. (A friend can’t miss her BFF’s shower for her first baby!) I should arrive in on the red-eye Saturday morning with enough time to hop in the car, pick up the family and drive the three hours to the baby shower.

I can do this. Right?


Oh and one more challenge. I am still a nursing mom. I have managed two trips this year already pumping on the go, so I have no hesitation that I can handle that. But toting breast milk on a cross-country flight, well that’s a whole other story. Wish me luck 🙂

So what will I be doing in LA exactly?

I will join 24 bloggers (and the best PR rep ever!) in attending a press day at Walt Disney Animation Studios for WRECK-IT RALPH and the animated short PAPERMAN (both opening in theaters 11/2), get a sneak peek of Disney/Pixar’s MONSTERS, INC. 3D (opening in theaters 12/19) and attend the red carpet premiere for FRANKENWEENIE (opening in theaters 10/5)!

A red carpet premier and a visit the Walt Disney Animation Studios. I am giddy with excitement!!!

Of course, there will be tons of pictures to share along the way. Since I am totally obsessed with Instagram, I hope you will follow me on Instagram to see what I am up to. If you are on Twitter, you can also find updates from all of the bloggers with the hashtag #DisneyMoviesEvent. And I promise to update my Facebook page too.
