The last time I traveled to L.A. with Disney, it was my first trip to the city – to the state of California – and my first movie premier which was for the continually popular Disney Frozen! It was awesome, I met a few amazing bloggers and got to hang out with a few of my favorite ones, not to mention standing at a party with celebrities like Neil Patrick Harris, Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell and more. You know, a typical Saturday.
I’m so thankful to be, once again, traveling with Disney to L.A. with 24 other exclusively chosen bloggers for an amazing few days that will be so full of jaw-dropping opportunities, it will take multiple posts and a flurry of Twitter photos just to cover it!
Million Dollar Arm Event
Our first stop is the red carpet premier for Million Dollar Arm starring Jon Hamm (Mad Men). A biographical sports drama appropriate for its spring time release, it’s about a sports agent (Hamm) who uses unconventional recruitment strategies to bring super talented cricket players to play Major League Baseball in an attempt to save his career.
What’s different about this premier is that, because it’s centered around a sports theme, we’ll be tailgating in lieu of a traditional post-preview after party. I will be tailgating with celebrities – how crazy is that?!
May The Fourth Be With You!
Since we’ll be in L.A. on May 4th, which is known as “Star Wars Day” in reference to the movie’s popular phrase “May the force be with you”, of course our Disney publicist has some themed events for that, as well. I’ll be attending an exclusive dinner event celebrating Disney XD’s upcoming release of their new animated series, Star Wars Rebels. I’m excited because I’m a bit of a Star Wars geek so it’s like this trip was created specifically for me 🙂
Jimmy Kimmel Live
Yeah, I know. I’m super excited, too! While I’m in L.A. I’ll be attending a live taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live. I’m thrilled because I’ve been a fan of Kimmel’s since The Man Show. Before the show, we’ll be meeting the show’s executive producer and after, we’ll get a tour of the studio from Guillermo himself!
We’ll also be touring the sets and meeting with the creators and producers of a variety of ABC television shows, including their summer drama, Mistresses. This event will cause an excessive amount of photos so you’ll want to make sure you’re following along.
These are all the details I have so far, as if it’s not enough, but I’m absolutely thrilled for this opportunity. I love my job! I will need your help while I’m there. Make sure that you’re following me on Instagram and on Twitter because I’ll be sharing photos like crazy! And PLEASE help spread the word by retweeting as much as you can. I’ll be bringing back some goodies, for sure, because Disney is always so good to us and I’ll be sharing some with my readers. I’ll be keeping a special eye out for those who are sharing on Facebook, retweeting on Twitter and liking pics on Instagram. Thanks so much!
