Disney Planes Premiere Red Carpet 1

A few weeks ago, I opened a very exciting email from some of my favorite Disney PR reps.  It was an email inviting me to attend the Disney Planes Premiere in Hollywood.  It wasn’t only the movie Premiere though – it was a Red Carpet Experience at the Premiere.  Let me tell you, it was one of the most amazing events I’ve ever attended and I will never forget it!

I recognized a few of the actors who are the voices Disney’s Planes, but had no idea I would see AND talk to so many celebrities who were totally down to earth!  I also had no idea I would build as many friendships or have as much fun as I did.  Ok, so now back to the Disney Planes Premiere.

We all met in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in our Red Carpet dresses, waited for our tickets and bracelets, and then headed over to the El Capitan Theater for the pre-party.  Pre-party you say?  Yes – pre-party!  It was filled with celebrities, games, prizes, food, and lots of fun! Events like this can be very chaotic but we felt really safe and secure because of the executive protection and event security services personnel scattered all around.

We actually walked along side the Red Carpet and it was so awesome!  We had to show our bracelets twice before even getting to the pre-party, but we were RIGHT there next to the stars!  The first van pulled up and it was Teri Hatcher.  She is one of my favorite actresses and I really wanted to get a pic of her, but had no idea I would get a picture with her during the pre-party!

Once we walked alongside the Red Carpet, it was time to enter the Target Landing Zone.  There were lots of games with fun prizes that both kids and adults could play – woot woot!  I was able to win some really cute toys for this Christmas, not to mention have tons of fun!

We didn’t see many other actors on the Red Carpet, but we did see them at the Pre-Party.  I got pictures with Teri Hatcher, Alyssa Milano, Harold Perrineau and Dane Cook.  After the pre-party, it was time to head into the Disney Planes Premiere at the El Capitan Theater.  I was so excited to see it in 3D and let me tell you, my expectations were far exceeded.  More on my review of Disney’s Planes in an upcoming post.
