Cars 3 Event

Many thanks to Disney & Pixar for providing all expense paid travel and accommodations. The opinions are 100% my own.

Guess what….I’m going to Disneyland this weekend!!!! Whenever I say that I feel like squealing! I’ve been invited, along with 24 bloggers, to attend the CARS 3 press junket and red carpet premiere. The event happens at Disneyland so when in Rome…or Disneyland. Here’s what the weekend is going to look like.

CARS 3 Press Junket

After dropping my bags off at our hotel, the Anaheim Marriott Hotel, it’s off to play in Disneyland for the day. When the evening arrives we’ll be screening CARS 3 and LOU, the animated short that runs before CARS 3, at the AMC Downtown Disney 12.

Saturday it’s all about CARS 3 starting with the interviews. Now, this is where I want your help: Gotta a question for any of these movie stars and I’ll ask it (within reason obviously)!

We’ll also be interviewing CARS 3 Director Brian Fee & Producer Kevin Reher. LOU Director Dave Mullins & Producer Dana Murray will be giving us a presentation on the short animated film.

Then I have a little less than three hours to get red carpet ready!! I have my false lashes (that I can hopefully apply all by myself), my outfit, accessories, and everything all packed and ready to go.

The red carpet premiere will be at the Anaheim Convention Center; we’ll watch both CARS 3 and LOU. After the screening we’ll take a shuttle over to Radiator Springs at California Adventure Park in Disneyland and we’ll dine and mingle the night away.

Sunday is our last day and it’s full of thrills as we throw ourselves completely into the Summer of Heroes at California Adventure. We’ll be riding the new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout. Think the Tower of Terror with a major upgrade still full of drops and a fun story that includes all of our favorite Guardians.
