Disclosure: I am being provided with an all-expense paid trip as part of a press Junket with Disney in exchange for my press coverage. All opinions are 100% my own.
As many of you know I had the amazing experience about a year ago to go out to California to experience the press junket and viewing of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie as well as a number of ABC Family shows and the movie Hundred Foot Journey. I had an amazing experience at this event and I am VERY excited to be heading back to California at the end of this month to be able to experience and report back to you great information on the new movie, The Good Dinosaur as well as a number of different other experiences.
These trips are whirlwind adventures, but they are definitely exciting. On this trip some of the things we will be doing include:
- Viewing and Learning More about the new Disney Pixar Film, The Good Dinosaur
About the Movie
Have you ever sometimes wondered what it would be like if animals, moreover, dinosaurs roamed the world as we humans do everyday? “The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. In theatres on November 25th!

2. Celebrate the Release of Disney’s Inside/Out With a Press Junket!
My family and I are big fans of this movie and I am looking forward to hearing from some of the actors form this film too. I have yet to find out who I will be meeting, but I know that it will be eye-opening and a ton of fun too!
About the Movie
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (MindyKaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
3) Seeing and Learning About the new Short, Sunjay’s Super Team
About the Short
Sunjay’s Super Team follows the daydreams of a young Indian boy who is bored with his father’s religious medication, and imagines the Hindu Gods as superheroes. See it in theatres on November 25th!
4) Pixar Press Day & Miles From Tomorrowland
I have always wanted to go behind the scenes to explore the Pixar Animation Studios and I will be at the end of the month! During this day I will be having an exclusive press day trip to Pixar where I will also be able to interview some of the amazing and talented filmmakers and animators of The Good Dinosaur as well as learn more about Disney Junior’s Miles From Tomorrowland at Google Headquarters and interview with some of the voice talent from the show.
About Miles From Tomorrowland
Disney Junior’s “Miles from Tomorrowland” is an intergalactic adventure that charts the outer space missions of young adventurer Miles Callisto and his family – mom and ship captain, Phoebe; mechanical engineer dad, Leo; tech-savvy big sister, Loretta; and best friend robo-ostrich pet, Merc – as they help connect the galaxy on behalf of the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. Miles, Merc and the Callisto family explore wondrous and diverse new worlds, taking young viewers and their families on a futuristic journey designed to fuel kids’ natural interest in space, and at the same time reminding them of the importance of what lies close to home – the family bond.
