Hello, Hollywood! I’m going to LA for #DisneyPlanesPremiere and #LittleMermaidEvent

*Disney is providing me with an all expenses paid trip to LA in order to attend the red carpet premiere and participate in group interviews with cast and crew from The Little Mermaid. All opinions are 100% my own.*

My love affair with Disney began with Pinocchio, but my strongest memories are firmly attached to The Little Mermaid. I couldn’t be prouder to be returning to Los Angeles August 4th-6th to once again represent Simply Stacie on an amazing blogger trip revolving around my long-time favorite, The Little Mermaid, and Disney’s upcoming release, Planes, which is set in the same universe as Disney/Pixar’s Cars and Cars 2.

Hello, Hollywood! I'm going to LA for #DisneyPlanesPremiere and #LittleMermaidEvent

Here’s what I can tell you we will be doing:

  • Attending a family-friendly pre-party and the red carpet premiere of Disney’s Planes
  • Previewing bonus content from the upcoming Blu-ray release of The Little Mermaid
  • Interviewing Jodi Benson, the speaking and singing voice of Ariel
  • Interviewing The Little Mermaid writers and directors John Musker and Ron Clements
  • Viewing twenty minutes of Disney’s upcoming Frozen
  • Having a meet-and-greet with the stars of Super Buddies, the next film in the Buddies franchise

Additionally, we’ll be staying at the historical Roosevelt Hotel, where I had a poolside dinner on the first Disney press trip I attended two years ago. There is some fascinating history behind the hotel, and I can’t wait to spend more time in the hotel and learn more about it.

Myself and the twenty-four other bloggers attending this once-in-a-lifetime experience would love it if you follow along on our amazing journey by following our unique hash tags on Twitter: #DisneyPlanesPremiere and #LittleMermaidEvent
