Disclaimer: Disney is sending me to Los Angeles on an all-expenses paid trip, in exchange for my coverage of these events, which includes the INSIDE OUT red carpet premiere. All opinions are my own.
I’ve never been one of those girls who spends hours getting ready for an event. Never been one to really worry about what I’m wearing. I grab something easy and comfortable from the closet and go.
But invite me to a red carpet premiere…… apparently I change and I, along with family members who shall remain nameless, recognize a few characters from Disney•Pixar’s new animated movie, INSIDE OUT.
You don’t understand? Oh, let me take you along, or shall I say INSIDE the voices in my head…..
- JOY is squealing with delight as I open a pixie-dusted email from Disney. The Red Carpet? Hollywood Boulevard? THIS is amazing!
- But SADNESS has a thing or two to say about the event. It’s the first few days of summer. A certain little girl would be home. Who will take care of her if I go? Oh no…..
- ANGER blows steam. What do you mean this dress doesn’t FIT anymore? WHAT!!!!!
- And DISGUST, well, can’t you just hear her while I’m out dress shopping? THAT DRESS simply will not do. It’s not fashionable. Must be a bit shorter. More colorful. More hip.
- And then there’s FEAR, one who knows me so well. I hear his high pitched voice now….WHAT IF WE TRIP ON THE RED CARPET??? IN FRONT OF ALL THE CAMERAS???
Luckily at the end of the day JOY takes charge. She doesn’t hesitate to remind me of amazing memories tucked inside my brain. Remember the amazing friends you’ve made on these Disney blogger trips? Remember that time you chatted with Molly Ringwald at the Cinderella Red Carpet Premiere?
Oh, what would I do without JOY? 🙂
And it is with JOY that I announce I’m heading to Disney-Pixar’s INSIDE OUT Red Carpet Premiere in Hollywood!
From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith).
The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
So, yes, the Red Carpet experience at the famous El Capitan Theatre will be thrilling. Don’t believe me? Just take a peek at the time I walked the red carpet for the very first time at the Cinderella Red Carpet Premiere.
And there’s the PARTY too!

But there’s more….after all, I am in Hollywood for 3 days!
I’ll be joining Disney channel for a special screening of TEEN BEACH 2!

In keeping with the fun summer theme, I’ll get up close and personal with Phineas & Ferb!
You may have heard the big news about the popular animated series. It’s coming to an end, but never fear.
Every “Phineas and Ferb” story ever told will be presented in a 73-hour marathon beginning TUESDAY, JUNE 9 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) leading to the ultimate story capper, “Last Day of Summer,” premiering FRIDAY, JUNE 12 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD and simulcast on Disney Channel.

I can’t wait and know a few children related to me who are dying to sneak into my suitcase just for this alone!!!
Growing up, my family ALWAYS talked of going on FAMILY FEUD!
You know….”Top 5 answers on the board” and “Survey Says”!
Apparently, I’m not the only one as my husband knew exactly which 5 in his family would go on the show!
WELL……while I’m not going ON the show, this is about as close as I’m likely to get. While in LA, I’ll also be attending a live taping of ABC’s new primetime celebrity version of “Family Feud,” premiering on Sunday, June 21st at 8/7c: “Celebrity Family Feud.”
I wonder which celebrities??!!??
Whew! And I don’t even have my official full itinerary yet!
Be sure to follow along from Sunday June 7th – Tuesday, June 9th.
