WRECK-IT RALPHI am so excited for the announcement that Disney made yesterday. WRECK-IT RALPH is one of my all time favorite movies. I even had the opportunity to do a little voice over work on a press trip. Watch as I do the voice of Vanellope. So I can’t wait for the sequel to come out March 2018!


Original Voice Cast Members John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman Set to Return

Ralph Wrecks the Mobile Game Disney Crossy Road in Celebration of the Announcement

BURBANK, Calif. (June 30, 2016) – Wreck-It Ralph is heading back to the big screen, and this time, he’s wrecking the internet. The Oscar®-nominated Walt Disney Animation Studios team from the original film is reteaming for the follow-up, including director Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “The Simpsons”) and producer Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Bolt”). Phil Johnston (writer, “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” “Cedar Rapids”) joins Moore as director and a writer on the project. John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman return as the bad-guy-turned-good, Ralph, and the girl with the game-winning glitch, Vanellope von Schweetz. The untitled sequel will hit theaters—literally—on March 9, 2018.

The filmmakers and Reilly made the announcement on Facebook Live today.

“From the moment we started working on the first ‘Wreck-It Ralph,’ we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters,” said Moore, who has been developing it since shortly after the release of the first film, and while directing this year’s critically-acclaimed hit “Zootopia” with Byron Howard. “This time, Ralph’s wrecking wreaks havoc on the Web—as only he can do. Characters we loved in the first film are back and we are ecstatic to be working with them—and the actors who voice them—once again.”

“The world of the internet is the perfect place to send Ralph and Vanellope,” said Johnston. “The scope and scale are so vast and the possibilities for comedy are endless.”

“Ralph is a character very near and dear to my heart,” added Reilly. “I’m really looking forward to playing the big lug again. Making the first ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ was one of the most special experiences I’ve ever had and I’m really looking forward to bringing him back to life. So many kids I’ve met all over the world are excited to see him again, too. They tell me all the time!”

When “Wreck-It Ralph” opened on Nov. 2, 2012, it turned in the highest opening weekend ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios film at the time of release. Nominated for an Oscar® and Golden Globe® for best animated feature, “Wreck-It Ralph” won the PGA Award for outstanding producer of an animated theatrical motion picture as well as five Annie Awards, including best animated feature, director, cast and screenplay. The film was named best animated feature by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, earned outstanding achievement in casting for an animated feature by the Casting Society of America, and won the Kids’ Choice Award for favorite animated movie.


At 12 p.m. PT today, Disney’s hit mobile game, Disney Crossy Road, will be wrecked by Ralph in celebration of the announcement. As fans play through the 12 different Disney and Pixar worlds of Disney Crossy Road, Ralph may appear and ‘wreck’ part of their gameplay.

“Wreck-It Ralph has been one of the most popular worlds to play in Disney Crossy Road, so it made perfect sense to celebrate Ralph’s return by letting him go outside his world and ‘wreck’ other parts of the game,” said Chris Heatherly, SVP & GM, Disney Apps and Games. “We are big fans of the first film, as are our players, and can’t wait to see how the next chapter unfolds.”


The animated feature “Gigantic,” originally announced as Disney’s March 9, 2018, release, will be released on November 21, 2018.

Disneyland Resort is Celebrating 60 Years of Disney Magic with Their Diamond Celebration

disneyland bannerDisclosure- I went on an all expense paid trip on behalf of Disney to cover the Blu-ray release of Tomorrowland and Aladdin as well as Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary.  All opinions are my own.diamond castle

Being a Florida girl I have gone to Walt Disney World MANY times over the years starting at the age of 5 when we moved down from NY. On my trips to WDW I would see all the people with the “1st Visit” buttons and I would be a little secretly jealous because my first time at WDW was so long ago and I never got one of those buttons. That all changed last week when I earned my “1st Visit” button at Disneyland Resort!!!  Yes, in my 41 years and all my trips to California, I had never been to Disneyland. At the park I found out that all you need to do to get one of these awesome buttons FOR FREE is to ask at guest services or any of the shops. They also have ones for those celebrating other things like birthdays and anniversaries and most of the shops have all of the different button types behind the counter so make sure to ask for one if you’re celebrating or if it is your first time at the park.

When you go to Disneyland or Walt Disney World make sure to grab a FREE button if you’re celebrating!

first visit pinGoing to Disneyland Resort right now is the perfect time because they are celebrating their 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration. Can you believe that this magical place has been around for 60 years?!?!  disneyland 60 frameThere are lots of  diamonds all around the park in celebration of the Diamond Anniversary Celebration.  When you first enter the park there is an entire store dedicated to the celebration so you’ll be sure to find something you’ll like. There is truly something for everyone.

Throughout the park there are over 500 special merchandise items that have been created just for the Diamond Celebration including apparel, accessories, art, collectibles, headwear, jewelry, and so much more.

disneyland 60 storeI was excited to grab this shirt for myself.  Isn’t it pretty?

D60 pinDisney sent us home with these beautiful mugs, too, as part of our blogger trip!disneyland mugAs part of our blogger trip we were treated to a lunch and photo opp with the big mouse himself and his first lady, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse! They were all decked out in their special Diamond Celebration attire.  So cute!

It’s Mickey and Minnie!

Leave it to Disney to have everything themed down to the containers for our special lunch. These containers were shaped like, what else, DIAMONDS!  The bottom compartment had our lunch and there was a neatly wrapped cookie on top.  How adorable!!!diamond lunch

There is so much excitement around Disneyland’s Diamond Anniversary celebration including Disneyland Diamond Days including a text-in-for-a-chance-to-win sweepstakes with daily and weekly prizes including a one-carat diamond, a stay in the Disneyland Dream Suite, and lots more!  For more details go to http://Disneyland.com/DiamondDays. In addition Mickey Mouse and some of his friends have dressed up for the celebration in sparkling new Diamond Celebration costumes that you will only see during the celebration. There are also lots of beautiful displays all over the park. In Disney California Adventure there is also an after-dark “Diamond Mad T Party” featuring sparkling new decor, interactive fun, dancing, as well as food and drinks.

Right now at Disneyland there is a new beautiful Paint the Night electrical parade, new Disneyland Forever fireworks spectacular show, and an all-new “World of Color” show which all combine creativity, beauty, and technology. The Paint the Night parade is 3 years in the making. It is the first ever almost entirely lit by LED lights.

Including video screens, the Paint the Night Parade contains more than 1.5 mllion sources of light with more than 500 strobes!

Here are just a few pictures from the Paint the Night parade:

20150921_213031I had an amazing time at Disneyland. A few months ago I went to Walt Disney World with a blogger friend from California. She had never been to WDW and she kept on saying how different but the same it was to what she was used to, Disneyland. She was saying how things felt like they had been moved around from what she was used to. I didn’t totally understand what she meant until last week. Main Street in Disneyland had the same feel as Main Street in WDW but it wasn’t the same. Things were familiar but different. Many of the rides in Disneyland were familiar but different. It was sort of an out of body experience. Here’s just a glimpse of some of the things I saw at Disneyland.

20150921_165041 (1024x576)I went on a submarine to find Nemo!
20150921_165419Marlin and Dory!

20150921_165425I found Nemo and Squirt!!!


And churros!!!  20150921_192148I love this time of year!!!
20150921_141443 (576x1024)Yes, the “song” was in my head for days after I got of this iconic ride!
20150921_173452 (576x1024)

20150921_175407 (576x1024)I kicked some alien butt on this one!!!

The most different of all was my favorite Disney ride of all time, the Haunted Mansion. Every time I go to WDW I make sure to go to the Haunted Mansion so of course it was one of the first things I did at Disneyland. The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland is SOOO different than the one in WDW though. It is a mix of Halloween and Christmas and has a Nightmare Before Christmas theme. I loved every minute of it. It still had some familiar parts to it but I loved all the differences.

My Favorite Disney Ride- The Haunted Mansion

20150921_160407 (1024x576)

20150921_160555 (1024x576)

I can’t wait for the day that I go back to Disneyland and bring my family so they an experience it all, too! I highly recommend going to both parks yourself and seeing how it is so much the same yet so different.

Here are some fun facts we learned during our trip to Disneyland:

  • Disney brought in a NASA astronaut into Space Mountain to consult and help make it feel realistic.
  • There are over 300 animated children in It’s a Small World.
  • The outside of It’s a Small World represents places around the world joining together.
  • There are 10 Disney Ambassadors around the world.
  • Disneyland will never be complete as long as there is imagination.

image002 (1)Last month I had the amazing opportunity to go to Magic Kingdom with 24 other bloggers and while we were there we went on one of my favorite rides, the Carousel of Progress.  I just love watching how things changed over the course of a century and I dream about what’s to come in the future..carousel of progress carousel2 tomorrowland tomorrowland2 I saw a sneak peek of Tomorrowland when I went to Orlando a few weeks ago for the Monkey Kingdom Event and it was AMAZING.  I can’t wait for this movie to come out.  Tomorrowland is one of my favorite places in Walt Disney World so I am especially drawn to this movie.  It stars George Clooney judging from the trailers it looks like one big adventure of a movie! From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland,” a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever. Featuring a screenplay by “Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, “Tomorrowland” promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of. The film also stars Hugh Laurie as brilliant scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson. “Tomorrowland” is produced by Damon Lindelof, Brad Bird and Jeffrey Chernov and directed by Brad Bird, with John Walker, Bernard Bellew, Jeff Jensen and Brigham Taylor serving as executive producers. “Tomorrowland” opens in U.S. theaters on May 22, 2015. “Casey” featurette “Athena” featurette “What Is Tomorrowland” featurette “Citizens Of Tomorrowland” featurette

image004 (1)Here are some fun facts from Tomorrowland- FUN FACTS • Director/writer Brad Bird is no stranger to the world of Disney and it isn’t just from working on his previous films. When he was 11, Bird developed an interest in animation and over the course of three years he finished a 15-minute animated film that came to the attention of Disney Animation, who offered to assign a mentor—the famous Master Animator Milt Kahl—to the then 14 year old. Bird stayed with a family friend in Los Angeles to take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime offer. • When the concept of “Tomorrowland” was just percolating in writer/producer Damon Lindelof’s mind, Sean Bailey, president of production at Disney told him about a box that had been discovered accidentally in a closet at the studio. The “mystery box” contained all sorts of fascinating models and blueprints, photographs and letters seemingly related to the inception of Tomorrowland and the 1964 World’s Fair. Lindelof imagined that these findings were a guide to a secret story that nobody knew about; a place called Tomorrowland that was not just a theme park but existed somewhere in the real world. This became the jumping-off point for the story of “Tomorrowland” that Lindelof would later develop with director/producer Brad Bird and executive producer Jeff Jensen. • In recreating the 1964 World’s Fair for “Tomorrowland,” filmmakers were lucky to find that one of the iconic pieces, the Unisphere, was actually in Flushing Meadows, New York, standing outside of the USTA National Tennis Center. The huge globe’s fountains are still in place as well as the gardens. The filmmakers dispatched a photographer to New York to take photos so that they could use the real images as a composite element in the scenes. • For the 1964 World’s Fair, the Walt Disney Company created three rides, the It’s a Small World ride being the one we remember most. Though quaint by today’s standards, back in 1964, Carousel of Progress and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln were revolutionary in how they used robotics and ride technology to create a thematically rich experience. • When it came to creating a city built by visionaries with advanced technologies, filmmakers knew it had to look like one and finding such a place was not an easy task. At first it seemed as though the whole of Tomorrowland would have to be built from scratch, an expensive and time-consuming proposition. But then in a series of wonderful coincidences, Tom Peitzman, the visual effects producer and the film’s co-producer, stumbled upon a car commercial early on in production; the location in the commercial looked so futuristic that he recorded the ad on his phone and brought it to director Brad Bird. The location turned out to be the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, Spain, and was designed by Santiago Calatrava whose work was already serving as an inspiration for production designer Scott Chambliss. The discovery also dovetailed with director Brad Bird’s preference for physical locations over virtual sets. • For the filmmakers, the bizarre memorabilia emporium, Blast From the Past, was a fun—and nostalgic—set to create. Set decorator Lin MacDonald spent months curating the extensive display of collectibles, consisting of thousands of pieces, both purchased and manufactured by the production, and many originals—some from Brad Bird’s own collection. There are shelves and shelves of comic books and items such as classic sci-fi movie posters, an original Luke Skywalker action figure from the 1970s, and even items from “Space 1999.” The production design team literally built a store and set it in the middle of a sound stage. • Designed by illustrator Tim Flattery of “Men in Black” fame, the plasma ray guns used in the comic-book store scene feature interactive light that spills out into the environment, adding to their air of authenticity. The guns were built with a very small but powerful wireless battery pack that fits on the end. Upon the actor hitting the trigger, the gun throws interactive light out the front. When the “plasma” is empty, a red light goes on and, as the gun recharges, the lights turn blue again. • One aspect of working with the child actors, Thomas Robinson (Young Frank) and Raffey Cassidy (Athena), was that if you take an eleven-year-old and start them on a movie in the summer and don’t finish the movie until mid-winter, chances are they going to grow, and that includes their teeth. When Raffey arrived in Vancouver ready to start work, she was missing teeth, so she had to get fakes made before the start of principal photography. Then Thomas started losing his teeth one by one. So the kids spent a lot of time getting “flippers” made, which are temporary, removable teeth. • Young Raffey Cassidy, who plays Athena, underwent training in swimming, gymnastics, wirework and martial arts, which was the primary focus of her training as her character kicks some serious butt in the movie. 2 • The Bridgeway Plaza took six months to build and was about half the size of a football field. The set was so enormous that no sound stage existed that could house it and considerable height was also required for the intended aerial work above the set and for the cranes big enough to hold the lights required to illuminate the set. Adding to the complexity was the fact that the set had to serve different time periods over the course of the script: 1964, when young Frank first visits; 1984, the period in Casey’s pin-induced vision; and 2014, when the remainder of the story takes place. This required six-week intervals between shoots to allow the production design crew time to redress and alter the set for each time period. • The Bridgeway Plaza set included a fully functional monorail (called the levitating elevated vehicle). Once the monorail was completely built and the lights and glass were put in, it weighed about 35,000 pounds. That meant that the crew had to figure out how to move the hefty monorail—loaded with principal cast— safely down a track that was elevated 16 feet in the air and stop it at exactly the same position time and again. They came up with hydraulic winches that could be shut down very quickly in an emergency and brakes that they could apply whenever they wanted to bring the monorail to a very specific mark to stop, open the door automatically and have the cast walk out. • The film started principal photography on a farm in Pincher Creek, Alberta, where the filmmakers paid a farmer to grow winter wheat that had a particular shade of amber—director Brad Bird’s vision of rural perfection. Then the crew moved to a farm in Enderby, in British Columbia’s Okanagan, to shoot the Walker farm and its cornfields, also grown specifically for the production. • In addition to sets in Spain and Canada, locations included the “It’s a small world” ride at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, Calif., a beach in the Bahamas and a secondunit shoot in Paris. In total, the film had over 90 different combinations of sets and locations, and moved ten times. • Costume designer Jeffrey Kurland had to dress almost 400 extras in 1964-era attire for the Hall of Invention and Unisphere Plaza World’s Fair scenes. • The 1964 jet pack designed for Young Frank (Thomas Robinson) was a feat of engineering and imagination. It has 40 different fasteners on the backpack frame and has mounts for Electrolux vacuum cleaners on the sides. Control cables operate the small shovels on the back. Cables run through the jet pack onto the handles so the actor can control it. The jet pack was fastened to a plate and could be easily removed from the frame so that Thomas did not have to walk around with 20 lbs. of jet pack on his back between takes. 3 • For the props department, creating props for the different time periods of the film—1964, 1984 and 2014—was a challenge. There are different influences and materials that affect the manufacture and design of the props for each era, so every prop needed to be carefully researched and analyzed to make sure the technology and materials they planned to use existed in the time period. Then the filmmakers had to try and find the real parts to make things authentic. • Filmmakers were thrilled to see a real NASA Maven rocket launch (a probe to Mars) at the Cape Canaveral set location and several of them were able to view the launch from a position closer than the press viewing stage. For the filmmakers, it was a dream-come-true and symbolized the future that the film inspires.

  • Participants are given a Wilderness Explorer Handbook at one of 9 Troop Leader Stations.  They are located all over the park so you don’t have to be in the front of the park to get started.
  • Exploring is a life long adventure.  Most participants average about 12 badges a day and come back multiple times with their books to earn all the badges.
  • The Wilderness Explorers Program connects families to nature and each other.  It shows them parts of the park they might not have seen and gets parents involved in the learning, too.
  • There are 3 types of cast members who give out badges- Trooper Leaders (interns who are trained in education or science), Merchandise Cast Members (who share all about various authentic merchandise that is available in the park), and Cultural Cast Members (who share about their native countries).20150416_093425 (576x1024)
  • Troop Leaders and other representatives don’t just give out badges, they engage the participants, ask them questions about what they have learned, and teach them new things, too.
    20150416_093601 (576x1024)
  • Find cast members with orange satchels or look for signs with W/E on it to find badges to earn.
  • When you earn all the badges you earn a special Senior Wilderness Explorer badge.

Completing each activity allows you to earn a sticker badge in their very own Wilderness Explorers handbook, which can be picked up from any of the nine Troop Leader locations around the park. Explorers can earn up to 31 badges, but are encouraged to earn these badges in multiple visits, since exploring is a lifelong adventure!

The program’s goal is to connect guests with animals, conservation and culture while spending time together as a family, during and even after their visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Don’t forget to take your family to see Monkey Kingdom!!!

Disneynature’s BEARS releases in theaters on April 18, 2014!   I had the opportunity to see a short preview of this film and it is awesome!  Bears is the fifth theatrical release for Disneynature, the first new Disney-branded film label from The Walt Disney Studios in more than 60 years.  The label was launched in April 2008 to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to capture a variety of wildlife subjects and stories.  The first four theatrical releases under the Disneynature label—“Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”—are among the top five highest grossing feature-length nature films of all time.  Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife documentary filmmaking, producing 13 True Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, including “Seal Island” (1948), “Beaver Valley” (1950), “The Living Desert” (1953) and “Jungle Cat” (1958).  The films earned eight Academy Awards®.


Disney’s commitment to conservation is a key pillar of the label and Disneynature films empower the audience to help make a difference. Through donations tied to opening-week attendance for all four films, Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, has planted three million trees in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, established 40,000 acres of marine protected area in The Bahamas, protected 65,000 acres of savanna in Kenya, protected nearly 130,000 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat, educated 60,000 school children about chimpanzee conservation and cared for chimpanzees.

At D23, Walt Disney Studios’ chairman Alan Horn announced that for every moviegoer who sees BEARS opening week, Disneynature will make a contribution to the National Park Foundation to protect wildlife and wild places across the National Park system.
