So excited to be attending the #ZootopiaEvent in Orlando next weekend!
When the email came in from Disney, I seriously squealed with excitement. A weekend in Orlando with some of my favorite blogging friends plus the opportunity to interview the cast of Zootopia….YES PLEASE!
Oh, and did I mention we are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which has been on my hotel bucket list forever. I am so dang excited.
I honestly wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to say yes. I went from a huge high to a serious low in about 2 seconds flat. I was worried that John’s knee surgery would overlap, and I didn’t feel like I could leave him home without me there to take care of him. After a lot of discussion John and I agreed that I would go, and life would work out the way it was supposed to. As you know, we thought John would have surgery at the beginning of February, and he would be 2-3 weeks into his recovery by the time I headed to Orlando.
Well, that didn’t quite pan out, and now it looks like John will be having surgery after I get back. I am so glad I made the decision to go, and life has worked out the way it did. I would have been so sad sitting at home watching my friends do amazing things while dreaming of being there.
So now I am eagerly counting down the minutes to hopping on a plane and heading to sunny Orlando…please let it be sunny and warm!
Now I bet you are wondering what we will be doing and why I am so darn excited. So here is what I know so far! You know Disney likes to add in surprises so there may be more to this once we get there.
We will be seeing Zootopia and interviewing the cast including Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman. We will also be interviewing Director Byron Howard and Rich Moore, Producer Clark Spencer and Co-Director Jared Bush. As I mentioned up above, we will be staying at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge, and it sounds like we will be exploring the parks.
We have been told to wear comfy shoes and be prepared for a lot of walking! I am charging my Fitbit and getting my flip-flops ready. Bring on the sunshine, fun, and great blogging friends!
Make sure and follow the hashtag #ZootopiaEvent to see all of our updates all over social media. Trust me we are a social media loving group, and there will be updates all over the place!
Zootopia hits theaters on March 4, 2016!
Check out the trailer! It looks so good!
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016
