I’m Going to Los Angeles for #StarWarsRebelsEvent, #MillionDollarArmEvent and #ABCTVEvent!

Star Wars Rebels EventJust a few days ago I received one of the best messages I could hope to receive in my inbox:

Star Wars Rebels ABC TV Million Dollar Arm

After a few quick phone calls to secure childcare with my family (who I appreciate so much!) I was able to confirm that I would indeed be hopping on a plane to Los Angeles in just a few weeks!

This trip is going to be jam-packed with exciting entertainment from Disney and ABC from start to finish. I’m actually a little bit in awe of the scheduling genius who’s able to plan everything involved for a group of 25 bloggers!

Disney Blog TripHere’s what we’ll be doing in just a few weeks:

  1. I’ll be attending the red carpet premiere of Disney’s Million Dollar Arm (in theaters on 5/16) and interviewing cast and filmmakers from the movie!
  2. I’ll be celebrating the unofficial Star Wars Day on May 4th (May the 4th Be With You) with a Star Wars dinner to celebrate the upcoming release of the new Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels!
  3. I’ll attend a live taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! from a VIP room in Jimmy Kimmel’s theater. I’ll interview Jill Leiderman, the show’s producer and also follow Jimmy’s security guard Guillermo Rodriguez as he takes us on a guided tour of the set.
  4. I’ll be visiting the set of ABC’s Mistresses and interviewing available cast members.
  5. I’ll be meeting creators and executive producers of a variety of ABC shows to discuss upcoming season finales and debuts of summer series.

I’ve been  jumping up and down at random times over the past few days as the details of this trip have popped into my head. I can’t believe how many different experiences I’ll get to share with all of you!

Even better, I’ll be connected with all of you via social media throughout the whole trip, so you can experience everything with me! Be sure to follow me on all of these social media channels to keep up with everything:

There’s going to be so much to share over the next few weeks. I can’t wait to see what’s in store!

Disney’s Pirate Fairy Review and Pirate Fairy Printable Activities!

Disney Pirate Fairy DVD Blu Ray BoxMy kids have been so very excited to watch Disney’s The Pirate Fairy for months, so I jumped on the opportunity to write this The Pirate Fairy review and watch the movie with them last weekend!

From the world of Peter Pan comes The Pirate Fairy, a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities.

When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship.

Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself.

With laughter, heart, magic and thrills, The Pirate Fairy sets sail April 1, 2014.

Pirate Fairy ReviewPersonally, I love movies that reference and connect the dots with films that I’ve already seen, and the above is a Pirate Fairy infographic that gives a little background on the movie.

Along the same lines, I absolutely adored seeing James in the movie and knowing that he was the future Captain Hook. My kids have seriously found this absolutely fascinating, and they’ve talked about James/Captain Hook a lot since we watched the movie!

baby tick tock crocAnother thing my kids were so excited about was “Baby Tick-Tock Croc”. They thought he was so funny and cute in Pirate Fairy!

Buy it! Disney’s The Pirate Fairy is available on Blu-Ray and it comes with a DVD and digital copy. The MSRP is $36.99 but it’s currently under $20 on Amazon.com! 

Yyou can also get a the single disc DVD version of Disney’s The Pirate Fairy for just $15.96.
