Have you ever wanted to go off and explore different places around the world? Yes, me too! I love traveling, I believe that it is an amazing way to meet different people and experience different cultures. So, whenever we get the chance, I do just that. This past Spring, I was beyond thrilled to again be invited by Disney to go to L.A for the #AvengersEvent press junket and to describe this experience in one word, it would have to be: spectacular. During this trip, I got to see some of the bloggers I had met during the #MonstersUPremiere in 2013, interview the amazing cast of Avengers and Agents of Shield, as well as, visit the LA zoo and the Agents of Shield set. Now that fall is here, this mommy just got sprinkled with a bit of pixie dust! Myself, as well as, 24 other wonderful bloggers are headed to San Francisco this September 29 to October 2. During this time, we will be experiencing many, many adventures, read all the details below. Now, I invite you follow along on all of our social media channels with the hashtags: #GoodDinoEvent #MilesEvent #Waltagram #InsideOutBloggers
I’m Headed to San Francisco!
While in San Francisco, we will attend a special press day for the In-Home release of Inside Out, which will be available on Blu-ray and Digital HD November 11, 2015. During this press day, we will be able to interview some of the filmmakers and voice talent from both INSIDE OUT as well as the all-new short film entitled “Riley’s First Date?”. If you haven’t seen Inside Out yet, check out our review of the movie right here.

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 (Mindy Kaling) 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.
We will also be visiting Pixar, yes hold me back! And screen footage from the upcoming movie The Good Dinosaur, which opens in theatres on November 25, 2015. Wait that’s not all, while at Pixar, we will aslo be screening of the short film “Sanjay’s Super Team” and attend The Good Dinosaur press event, which includes interviews with filmmakers, animators and much more.

“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 (voice of Raymond Ochoa) 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.
If visiting Pixar and attending the Inside Out press junket wasn’t enough. We get to travel to the Google Headquarters for a screening of Disney Junior’s Miles from Tomorrowland followed by a panel. As of right now, the panel is TBA, however, the conversation will be focusing on the importance of encouraging kids, especially girls, to explore STEM fields and how entertainment can play an important role. Doesn’t that sound amazing!?
Space adventurer Miles Callisto is always ready for action, traveling through the universe with his family and his best friend, a robo-ostrich named Merc. The family includes mom Phoebe, the ship’s captain who sets a good example and encourages her family on every mission; dad Leo, a laid-back pilot and inventor who isn’t afraid to try new things; and big sister Loretta, who is a brilliant computer coder and always has her brother’s back. Together, they use teamwork and problem solving as they encounter obstacles while completing missions throughout outer space for the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. The Callistos’ home base is a floating space station called the Stellosphere, and the StarJetter is the vehicle they use to go to other planets and galaxies. Each episode features a fact related to space or science that inspires the storyline.
