Guess What? We are going to Pixar!


One of the most magical places to visit is the Pixar Animation Studios. Earlier this month, I received the invitation of a lifetime to fly to up north to visit the Pixar Animation Studios and to learn more about the upcoming film COCO!

I have been fortunate enough to have visited Pixar Animation Studios two times in the past, and they were some of my favorite Disney memories.

The fun will begin next week as I board a plane to San Francisco. I’ll have the afternoon to relax at my hotel before meeting with a group of other bloggers attending the trip and ride over to the Pixar Animation Studios. Then it will be time for the best part – screening footage from COCO introduced by Director Lee Unkrich, Writer and Co-Director Adrian Molina and Producer Darla K. Anderson! I’ve seen the trailers for this film, and I know it is going to be one of the best fall movies of the year.

I’ll need to get a good nights sleep because the next day will be full of Pixar fun! We will learn about the music of COCO, how they brought skeletons to life, and more. I will get to learn everything about the film from the creative genius’ who made the film.

A visit to Pixar wouldn’t be complete with a little shopping at the Pixar store. My kids have already made a wish list of things they are hopeful that I’ll bring back for them as souvenirs. Along with shopping, we will also be given a mini tour of the Pixar campus, so make sure to follow us on Instagram to get an inside look at what it is like to visit Pixar!

The night will end with a little spoiling from Disney*Pixar as they treat us to dinner at the popular Trader Vic’s restaurant – yum!

Our last day of the trip will be spent at the Walt Disney Family Museum. We will go on a guided walk-through of the “Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja” and “Awaking Beauty: The Art of Eyvind Earle” exhibits!

Finally, the fun will come to an end as we make our way to the airport to fly home. Make sure and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to follow along with our magical fun at the Pixar Animation Studios!

COCO will be in theaters on November 22nd! Learn more about COCO online, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
