World Premiere of Pete’s Dragon

We attended as a guest of Disney

On the Pete's Dragon Green Carpet

The minute that I received the invitation from Disney to walk the “green carpet” at the World Premiere of Pete’s Dragon, I squealed with delight. Pete’s Dragon is one of the first books that I read to my children, and I couldn’t wait to see how Disney would bring the story to life.

Then there was the second most exciting part of getting the invitation, letting my daughter know that she was also invited to attend with me. I left little notes in her room that morning with hints of what the news was that I was going to surprise her. It didn’t take long for her to guess, and the first thing she said was, “What are we going to do with our hair?” I hugged her with all my might, and said, “It is going to be a magical night.”

And a magical night it was…

We both got new dresses for the premiere, and my daughters best friend curled her hair beautifully. When we arrived in Hollywood, Hollywood Boulevard was buzzing with excitement over the premiere. Fans were lined along the street hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite celebrity, and limos were beginning to arrive.

Then the time had come to see Pete’s Dragon. All of the guests attending the premiere party walked down the green carpet to the entrance of the historic El Capitan Theatre. Everyone stopped to take photos as they made their way down the carpet before entering the theatre.
