Although I’ve already been “leaking” info to you guys from Facebook and Twitter, it’s time to make the official announcement. I’ve been invited once again by Disney/DreamWorks to attend a very special blogger event! Yay, I’m so excited.
When you refer to “Disney Magic”, I think most people tend to associate it with children and theme parks. I have to say though, not only have I experienced the “magic” of all the wonderful people I have had the opportunity of meeting who work in the various areas and departments of Disney, but Disney has absolutely sprinkled it’s magic on the friendships and bonds that have forged during these special trips! I love that I have been able to form true friendships with a few supercalifragiawesome people (you know who you are!) that I probably otherwise would never have become so close with. (Thank you Disney!!)
This will be my fourth trip (reader trivia: can anyone tell me what the other 3 were for?) and I actually get to get on a plane and head out of town (instead of just over to Hollywood) for this one!
My magical 3 day journey starts early morning 12/2 and we will be treated to 3 days of exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime experiences including:
- Seeing Mary Poppins on Broadway (I’ve never been to a “broadway” show!)
- A Private Tour of the New Amsterdam Theatre (home of MARY POPPINS on Broadway)
- Interview with Steve Fickinger, VP of Creative Development and Licensing (MARY POPPINS and NEWSIES on Broadway)
- Attending DreamWorks Pictures‘ WAR HORSE Red Carpet Premiere & Star Studded After Party!
- Interview with Academy Award nominee, Emily Watson (“Rose Narracott” in WAR HORSE)
- Viewing an advance screening of Beauty and the Beast 3D
I can’t wait to share my experience with you all in detail when I get back :) I
If you would like to join me and be my “virtual” companion, you can follow the hashtag #DisneyDreamWorksEvent on Twitter! Not only will you be able to “see” and “hear” everything that is taking place AS WE EXPERIENCE IT, but if you have any questions or want to interact – you’ll have 20 very enthusiastic bloggers that will be more than happy to respond!
