I am receiving an all-expenses trip (no additional monetary compensation) to Los Angeles from Disney to attend the #ThorRagnarokEvent and THOR: RAGNAROK Red Carpet Premiere. All opinions are 100% honest and my own.
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you probably already know this because I’ve been way too excited to keep it a secret! Blogging has given me some incredible opportunities over the past four years but not sure I’ve ever been as excited about an opportunity as I am about this one!
I’m going to the Thor Red Carpet movie premiere and press junket in LA next week!
Going to one of the Disney red carpet events has been one of my bucket list blogging goals for a long time, so the invite alone was enough to make me literally scream out loud in the back of an Uber when I got the email inviting me on the trip! Then I proceeded to dance around in my hotel room for the next few hours with a big grin on my face.
But you guys, as we’ve learned more about what we’re doing on the three-day whirlwind trip, it’s not only a bucket list goal, it’s becoming a dream trip!
Here’s what I know so far. I’ll keep this post updated as we get more information!

Thor: Ragnarok Red Carpet Premiere & Interviews
First off – the main reason we are going! And the thing I’m most excited about since I’m Team Thor all the way! Team Revengers!?!
We’ll be attending the THOR: RAGNAROK red carpet movie premiere on Tuesday, October 10th, watching the movie, and getting to interview select talent from the film. We haven’t gotten our interview list yet, but I’m really really hoping it’ll at least include Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and director Taika Waititi.
Thor: Ragnarok Interview List
- Interviews TBD
Have questions you want me to ask the cast? Leave comments on this post or tweet me, and I’ll add them to my list!
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters everywhere on Friday, November 3rd. You can watch the official THOR: RAGNAROK trailer below.
CARS 3 In-Home Release
In addition to doing all things Thor, we’ll also be attending an awesome Disney Pixar CARS 3 themed dinner to celebrate the upcoming in-home release of CARS 3 to digital on 10/24 and Blu-ray on 11/7! I’m excited to see what amazing new content and extras Pixar has in store for the blu-ray and can’t wait to share them with all of you! Get your kids ready for the big release with these fun CARS 3 printable activities.
The CARS 3 dinner will be inside Flo’s V8 Cafe in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure, which is decked out for the first time ever for Haul-O-Ween! We’ll get to go on Radiator Springs Racers, Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween, and Mater’s Graveyard JamBoree! When I found out it would be in Cars Land, more screams – in my house, not an Uber this time.
For this girl who’s never been to Disneyland California Adventure, heading to Cars Land is another dream come true. And it gets even better because not only will we get to experience Cars Land, we get to go on the brand new Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout ride that’ll be themed out to Halloween with the new name “Monsters After Dark”!!!!!!! I’ve been dying to ride it after hearing all the reviews and seriously can’t wait!
Disney Junior’s “Vampirina”
The newest animated show on Disney Junior, “Vampirina,” tells the story of Vee, a young vampire girl, who faces the joys and trials of being the new kid in town (and a little different) when her family moves from Transylvania to Pennsylvania. It’s cute, quirky, and like many other Disney Junior shows, full good lessons about being yourself no matter what.
I watched the first two episodes when they premiered on Sunday, October 1st with my 4-year-old son. I was worried it’d be a little too girly for him, but nope, he loved them! We couldn’t get him to leave the hotel room, even for the chance to go to a huge water park! And I heard him singing the theme song to himself the rest of the day, so cute!
Vampirina Screening & Interview
We’ll get the chance to not only screen a brand new episode, but also do a Q&A session with the executive producer, Chris Nee (“Doc McStuffins”).
What questions do you have for Chris? Leave them in the comments or tweet me!
Watch the “Vampirina” trailer below.
Last but definitely not least, we’ll also get the chance to attend a lunch with the the tech company littleBits and try out their brand new STAR WARS Droid Inventor Kit. The kit lets you build your own R2D2, bring him to life, and send him on 16 different missions!
And you get to control him with the force!
My son has decided he wants to be Kylo Ren for Halloween this year is going to be so excited. We may just have to bring our little R2D2 trick or treating with us! Mission get candy.
ABC’s The Mayor
One of ABC’s new comedies, “The Mayor” features a 27-year-old wannabe rapper (Brandon Michael Hall) who decides to run for mayor as a publicity stunt to try and get more people checking out his music. Unfortunately the joke is on him because he wins and then has to figure out what it means to actually be a mayor of his community.
The Mayor Screening & Interview
We’ll get the chance to screen two brand new episodes of “The Mayor” and do a Q&A session with two of the show’s stars – Bernard David Jones (“Jermaine Leforge”) and Marcel Spears (“T.K. Clifton”). I’ve only seen the pilot of the show and am looking forward to seeing where they take the storyline!
‘THE MAYOR’ airs every Tuesday at 9:30/8:30c on ABC. Watch the pilot on demand on ABC.com.
