The Incredibles 2 Event
I’m heading back to LA for another fabulous press trip with Disney, ABC and of course 24 other great bloggers! Each trip is as unique and fun as the first one was and I’m thrilled to be heading back to LA to cover The Incredibles 2 Event. Over the last few years I’ve done some amazing things in LA and I LOVE going because they are once in a lifetime trips.
My first trip was in August 2013 where we celebrated the Little Mermaid and attended the Planes Premiere. But if I had to pick a favorite memory, I would have to say that when Jodie Benson sang to us would have to be it.
Then in March 2014- Muppets Most Wanted Premiere, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Swooning over Chris Evans, and a fun trip to the LA Zoo to celebrate Disneynature’s Bears and the In-Home Release of the Pirate Fairy. September 2014- Alexander and the Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day along with Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent.
February 5-8th, 2015 is the trip where I got to meet the legendary Kevin Costner to celebrate the release of McFarland USA. We also got to meet Ginnifer Goodwin along with some other pretty amazing things. 2015 was an excellent year because I was also able to attend the the Planes Premiere in San Francisco from September 29-Oct 2 knocking several fun things off of my Bucket List. Visiting the Pixar Campus was beyond epic!!
And finally, I am heading back to LA for lucky trip number 8 where we will be covering The Incredibles 2 Event, Big City Greens and of course some fun at Disneyland including PixarFest. I will be traveling on June 5-7, 2018 and I want you to follow along with me.
The event hashtags include: #PixarFest #Incredibles2Event #BigCityGreensEvent
The first day we will enjoy some free time in Disneyland or Disney California Adventure Park, then we will watch thePixar Play Parade and have dinner at Pixar Play Parade where I’m hoping to load up on carbs while I’m not around Brady! 😉 Then we will have more free time, where I’m certain I will find time to enjoy some churros!
Then we will enjoy Together Forever-A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular where we will enjoy dazzling projections, pyrotechnics, and fireworks as well as music from Pixar Films. We will then enjoy more time in either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure Park to enjoy the rest of the night. The last time I was in Disneyland it was Halloween Time and I know this trip will be just as magical because of the #PixarFest fun. Be sure you plan your travels between April 13-September 3 so you can enjoy the PixarFest Fun with your family.
The next day we will go to the Disney Lot where we will enjoy the Disney Legends, do some shopping at the Disney store (shh…don’t tell but I’m going to start spoiling grandbaby #1 while I’m there!) Then, we will head to the Disney Channel building and learn all about Big City Greens and enjoy screening episodes Space Chicken/Steak Night. Then we will have time to set down with creators and brothers Chris and Shane Houghton.
About Big City Greens

About Incredibles 2
In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
Directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer),
“Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.
