This Florida girl is heading to the west coast next month for some exciting ventures and it goes a little something like this….
June 17: I hop on a jet plane (preferably on a clear day so I don’t have turbulence, my last trip left my knees knocking) and leave sunny Florida for sunny California. Once there I will head to the Hilton Garden Inn to hopefully relax for a few minutes and freshen up before heading to the Walt Disney Studio lot to see a screening of the upcoming release of Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE. After those attending get a sneak peek of Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to get to see these two movies, my kids may or may not be a little envious if I tell them. This is definitely a secret mommy has to keep until after they have seen it themselves. Don’t worry though I will be sharing it with thousands of my close friends right here on my blog.
June 18: Press Day in full force. Attendees will view a screening of DreamWorks Pictures’ PEOPLE LIKE US with a Q&A from Director Alex Kurtzman before heading over to the BRAVE press day where there will be roundtable interviews with Kelly Macdonald (voice of “Merida”), Kevin McKidd (voice of “Lord MacGuffin”), Director Mark Andrews and Producer Katherine Sarafian. Later than evening we will attend the World Premiere of BRAVE at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Random fact: That’s where the Academy Awards are held! I am totally walking where big time celebs have walked, this is my calling, who wants my first autograph LOL. I am thrilled beyond words to get to attend the red carpet premiere.
June 19: I will head to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA and stay at the recently renovated Disneyland Hotel. While there I will visit the new Cars Land, get up close and personal with Radiator Springs (I can’t help but think of Mater), talk with an imagineer who helped create Cars Land, join a Mad T Party, join Ariel in her Undersea Adventure, take photos with the newest Disney character (it’s not a trip to Disney without a photo), and just have a blast. Yes, I will be turning back into a child for this day. Disneyland is a place I have always wanted to visit and I plan on experiencing it to the fullest!
June 20: Attendees with get to enjoy additional free time at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure parks before I head home! *Wonder what the chances of me getting a late flight out is!*
As I said in the video above, it has been a wish of mine to get over to Disneyland in California. Being asked to see some movies I am already excited about and attending a red carpet premiere, is fairy dust on my already granted wish. I can’t wait to share all my adventures of this trip, with you, as I experience them. You can keep up with me on twitter (@ToniPatton) as well as follow the other attendees by searching for #BraveCarsLandEvent. Not to mention I will be updating my Facebook Page throughout this event.
*This is a press trip and most expenses are covered. Thoughts are, as always, my own and honest. For more on my policies please see my disclosure under the PR Friendly tab.
