I’m Swimming to the Finding Dory Red Carpet with Ellen #FindingDoryEvent June 7th-9th and sharing all of the details of my Disney dream come true on the blog. This Pixie Dusted post is sponsored by Disney. All magical opinions are my own
To say that I’ve been waiting 13 years for THIS moment would be an understatement. The truth is, I’ve been waiting my whole life for THIS moment. Ever since I first laid eyes on Disney Pixar’s Finding Nemo, I knew this movie would forever change my life.
I’ve rode the Disney World ride at least a few dozen times…by myself…with no kids…
I’ve decorated my nursery in Finding Nemo. Twice.
And then my bathroom (because I couldn’t let go of the decor).
I’ve thrown a party…
And “Just Keep Swimming” became more than just a movie quote, it IS my life mantra.
And now 13 years later, the sequel I’ve been dreaming of is coming to theaters…finally. Finding Dory. I may or may not have been counting down the days (it’s 16 days, just in case you were wondering) and watching Finding Nemo on non-stop repeat in anticipation of MY movie of 2016.
And then, cue pixie dust.
I just returned from Disney Social Media Moms and received the email of the year. Yes, the year. Finding Dory. Red Carpet. Ellen. Tears, friends. Nothing but happy tears. Disney was calling, and I screamed in their ears. And now, I’m packing for the most memorable blogging moment of 2016. I am heading out to L.A. yet again with 24 blogging friends on June 7th – 9th for the Finding Dory Red Carpet Premiere.
We will be walking on the Red Carpet at the Disney Pixar Finding Dory Premiere. My 2nd red carpet event, I’ll be sure to capture all of the amazing moments, star sightings and activities as we go. And Lall Dass is back by popular demand and has promised yet another amazing red carpet dress, especially after the amazing Cinderella Red Carpet Premiere.

We will interview the amazing talent and filmmakers of Finding Dory. Ellen, folks. My best friend ELLEN DeGeneres will be there and more TBD talent. And that’s not all.
We will have an epic messy breakfast with Bounty and the new limited edition Finding Dory printed paper towels. In case you can’t find any in stores…I bought them all to last me the next 13 years.
We will get a sneak peek of the new Disney XD series LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures (premiering Monday 6/20 at 10 am EST) with Q&A with the executive producers. My 7-year old son is DYING over this new LEGO show!
We will also get a sneak peek of the new Disney Channel series Bizaardvark, a live-action comedy of 2 blogging besties (ironic?). Starring Vine sensation Jake Paul as Dirk (host of “Dare Me Bro!”), DeVore Ledridge as Amelia and Ethan Wacker as 12-year-old agent Bernie, we will get a chance to meet the cast, tour the set AND view the production of an upcoming episode.
And this is all jam packed into 3 days. So as I put Finding Nemo on repeat for the 50th time this week (Sorry in advance to my toddler. Princess movies are being held hostage until mommy leaves on a jet plane), and prepare for MY movie of the year, I hope you’ll follow along all of the Finding Dory Red Carpet adventures! I will be furiously sharing via social media, so be sure to follow these hashtags 6/7-6/9:
