I have been invited by Disney/ABC to attend this event. All my expenses will be paid but I promise all my opinions will be my own!
Every once in a while I get an amazing email. Last night I had a magical email. I have been invited to Los Angeles for a Disney/ABC Event. I get to attend some pretty amazing events!
The highlight of the event is walking the red carpet for the premiere of THE GOOD DINOSAUR (opening in theatres on 11/25) and also interview some of the cast & filmmakers from the movie. While I am in town I will also attend a live taping of the 21st season of “Dancing with the Stars” (Monday nights at 8/7c) where I will watch the semi-finalist contestants perform live in the glamorous ballroom! (How cool is that!?!)
Then I get to visit the Walt Disney Studios Lot for special preview screenings of episodes of hit ABC comedies“black-ish” (Wednesday nights at 9:30/8:30c) and “The Muppets” (Tuesday nights at 8:00/7:00c)!
While on the lot, I will have a meet & greet with the multi-talented Tracee Ellis Ross, who portrays Johnson family mom & anesthesiologist Rainbow “Bow” Johnson on “black-ish” and I will get to admired the beautiful Johnson home, this will be my chance to see the set in person!
I will also stop by the set of Miss Piggy’s late-night talk show, “Up Late with Miss Piggy” (which Kermit the Frog executive produces, of course) where I will be treated to an exclusive preview screening of an upcoming episode right there on the “Up Late” set. Later, I can take a selfie where famous guests like Elizabeth Banks and Christina Applegate were interviewed by Miss Piggy! After the screening, I will participate in a Q&A with “The Muppets” Executive Producer Bill Barretta, who also performs Pepe the King Prawn, Rowlf the Dog, The Swedish Chef, Dr. Teeth and Bobo the Bear!
But that’s not all….I will attend a screening of “The Lion Guard: Return of The Roar,” which continues the epic storytelling of “The Lion King” and introduces Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes his role as leader of the Lion Guard, a group of animals tasked with protecting the Pride Lands. The screening to be followed by a Q&A panel with Executive Producer Ford Riley, Composer Christopher Willis, Singer/Songwriter Beau Black and Swahili Consultant Sarah Mirza.
Im sure I will find some time to sleep too while I am there. I head out on November 15 -November 18. I will be sharing live from the event and there will be lots of blog posts to follow the event. Make sure you are following me on social media so you don’t miss anything.
