So, 2 weeks ago I’m sitting on the couch watching television with my husband. I’m finishing up some work and I received an email notification from Disney. I clicked over – and there I saw this subject line.
“DISNEY INVITES YOU TO LOS ANGELES…”
Omgeeeeeeeeee! My heart stopped before I could even open up the email. Finally, I get the email open and I see…
We would like to invite you to a very special Disney hosted event in L.A. for TOMORROWLAND next month – exclusively for our top Bloggers!
That’s as far as I got before I started squealing at my husband! At that point, he pauses the TV show – and I begin to read to him everything the email says.
So – obviously I say YES to the invitation and I’m going to Los Angeles, California next month from May 6th through May 8th! I’ll be attending the screening of the movie Tomorrowland along with 24 other amazing bloggers! We’ll also be attending the press junket where we’ll be interviewing actors and other talent from the movie. Just an FYI: The movie stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie and Tim McGraw so I’m crossing fingers and toes that we get to interview at least ONE of them! Tomorrowland will be in theaters everywhere, on May 22nd!
From Disney comes two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring Academy Award winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world-and them-forever.
Featuring a screenplay by “Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, “Tomorrowland” promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.
While we’re in town, we’ll be stopping by the Disney Archives to learn about Walt’s vision of “Tomorrowland”.
Always curious and thinking about progress, Walt Disney created Tomorrowland as a window to the future, a place to educate and inspire guests. Tomorrowland opened as one of five original lands at Disneyland park on July 17, 1955, and has had more attractions than any other area in the park. Today, Tomorrowland is home to attractions such as Space Mountain, a thrilling high-speed journey through outer space; Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, a 3-D motion simulated space flight with more than 50 different story combinations, and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, an interactive adventure through the world of Buzz Lightyear. Tomorrowland Theater occasionally offers movie previews, and guests will see a sneak peek of “Tomorrowland” with special in-theater effects beginning in mid-April.
And you know that a trip to Los Angeles and the whole Tomorrowland experience wouldn’t be complete without seeing the REAL Tomorrowland, so we’ll be visiting Disneyland!!!!! It’ll be my FIRST time ever!
Last, but not least, we’ll be there in time to get to experience Frozen Fun! Now, I don’t know about you but I’m a huge fan of Frozen! Yes, we still watch the DVD on the weekly and we still break out with “Let it Go” throughout the house randomly.
“Frozen Fun” is a big hit at Disney California Adventure park, bringing guests into the story of Disney’s animated blockbuster film, “Frozen.” Anna and Elsa are receiving visitors in their elegant greeting location, “Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome.” Guests can sing-along at “For the First time in Forever – A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration,” where Anna, Elsa and Kristoff take part in a lively retelling of their story with popular songs from the movie. You can bet your bottom dollar that I’ll be belting it out for all the world to hear!!!
Everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf, is ready to give a warm hug to guests of all ages. There’s a lot of “Frozen Fun” to be had, now through May 15. And Southern California residents can purchase tickets at special prices through May 20.
Please be sure to follow along with our whole experience, using #TomorrowlandEvent on social media. I can’t wait to see everything and then share it all with you!!!!!
