Disclosure- I will be going on an all expense paid trip to Los Angeles with Disney to cover the DVD release of Tomorrowland, Aladdin, and the Disneyland 60th Anniversary celebration. All opinions are 100% my own.
I am so excited to announce that this Sunday I will be flying to Los Angeles for a special event filled with Disney magic. We will start our adventure at the Disneyland Resort where we will have the honor of interviewing some of the amazing people behind the movie Tomorrowland. If you have any questions you’d like me to ask these talented individuals, tweet me @ThisIsCori and I’ll get you the inside info!
Here’s who we are interviewing:
- Tomorrowland Director, Brad Bird
- Tomorrowland talent, Thomas Robinson (Young Frank) & Raffey Cassidy (Athena)
- Disney Dreamer and Entrepreneur, Mike Goslin (VP of Production and Content at Disney Consumer Products)
- Disney Dreamer, Charita Carter (Producer at Disney Imagineering)
SYNOPSIS: Dreamers Wanted…Disney invites you to an incredible world of epic imagination where anything is possible. Buckle your seat belt, as the director of The Incredibles takes your family on an action-packed thrill ride.
Join former boy genius Frank (George Clooney), optimistic, science-minded teen Casey (Britt Robertson), mysterious Athena (Raffey Cassidy) and the brilliant David Nix (Hugh Laurie) in a world of pure Disney imagination. Tomorrowland transports you on an inspiring and magical journey of wonder and adventure to a place where if you can dream it, you can do it.
CAST: George Clooney as Frank Walker (“Gravity,” “Up in the Air”), Britt Robertson as Casey Newton (“The First Time,” “The Longest Ride”), Raffey Cassidy as Athena (“Snow White and the Huntsman,” “Dark Shadows”), Hugh Laurie as Nix (“Monsters vs. Aliens,” TV’s “House M.D.”), Tim McGraw as Eddie Newton (“The Blind Side”)
We will then be treated to a special Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary lunch hosted by an award winner Disney chef. YES PLEASE!!!! And the most exciting part of this trip for this Florida girl is having free time IN DISNEYLAND!!!! I have been to Walt Disney World tons of times since I have lived only a few hours away most of my life but in my 41 years I have never been to Disneyland. I can finally cross this off my bucket list AND I am excited to be able to get one of those “1st Time” buttons that I always see everyone wearing. Bring on the Haunted Mansion (my favorite ride at WDW so I can’t wait to compare), Dole Whips, and all the other Disney fun! I’ll be sure to tell you about all the excitement with Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary Celebration. We even get to watch the fireworks before we head back to our hotel.
For our second day we get to go on the Disney lot to speak with Aladdin Genie animator Eric Goldberg. Aladdin is one of my favorite movies so I am so excited that it is coming out of the Disney Vault on Blu-ray and we get to speak with someone who had a huge part in bringing it to life.
Synopsis: Climb aboard for a magical carpet ride with nonstop laughs, action-packed adventure and Academy Award®–winning music that will make your heart soar (1992: Best Music, Original Song, “A Whole New World,” Original Score). Now for the first time ever, a whole new world of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Aladdin is revealed in a whole new way on Blu-ray and Digital HD—with never-before-seen bonus!
With the help of a hysterically funny, shape-shifting, 10,000-year-old Genie, street-smart commoner Aladdin and clever, confident Princess Jasmine join forces against the evil sorcerer Jafar to put an end to his plans to take over the kingdom!
Voice Cast: Robin Williams (Jumanji, Night at the Museum) as The Genie, Scott Weinger (TV’s “Full House”) as Aladdin, Linda Larkin as Jasmine, Gilbert Gottfried (TV’s “Saturday Night Live”) as Iago, Jonathan Freeman (Aladdin: the Musical on Broadway) as Jafar, Douglas Seale (Rescuers Down Under, For Love or Money) as Sultan and Frank Welker (Mulan, The Smurfs 2) as Abu.
We will also be attending a special Disney Movies Anywhere demonstration with Eddie Drake, VP Product Development. If you haven’t heard about it yet, Disney Movies Anywhere is an app that let’s you search, purchase, and watch your favorite Disney movies. What Disney fan wouldn’t want that!?!? We’ll be ending our adventure with lunch on the Disney Lot. I’m sure there will be more surprises along the way so make sure to follow along!!
