My transportation, hotel, and incidental expenses will be covered by Disney while in LA. All opinions are my own.

I am extremely excited to let you know that I will be attending a very special Walt Disney Studios bloggers trip this August to celebrate the upcoming releases of PLANES and THE LITTLE MERMAID!

My son is so excited to see Planes this year that I haven’t been able to bring myself to tell him where I’m going. I’m sure he would be crushed knowing that he doesn’t get to come along. Once I get back though, he is going to be really excited to go see the movie!

Personally, The Little Mermaid was one of my favorite movies as a child, and it will be released in high def on a Blu-ray combo pack on October 1st so I’m really excited to share the movie experience with my kids!

Disney Planes Premiere and Little Mermaid Event!

My trip will include the Hollywood Premiere for PLANES, a behind the scenes look at the making of THE LITTLE MERMAID including interviews with talent and filmmakers, a private tour of the archives at the Animation Research Library, a preview of Disney Consumer Products LITTLE MERMAID product lines, and a sneak peek at the upcoming theatrical release of FROZEN. In addition, there will be a meet and Greet with some of the stars of SUPER BUDDIES, the newest film in the Buddies franchise.


The best part about this trip…I will get to share all of my experiences with you! Here is everything I will be talking about:

  • My experience at the PLANES premiere
  • A film review of PLANES
  • Q&A with the voice of “Ariel”, Jodie Benson
  • Q&A with Writers/Directors, John Musker and Ron Clements
  • Behind-the-scenes look at THE LITTLE MERMAID archives at the Animation Research Library  
  • A film review of THE LITTLE MERMAID
  • Disney Consumer Products’ preview of the newest LITTLE MERMAID merchandise (which will most likely end up as a giveaway after the event!)
  • FROZEN sneak peek teaser
  • SUPER BUDDIES review and meet and greet photos
