I feel like I just got back from LA but I am about to head that way again. I am so excited to be joining 24 amazing bloggers for the Moana Event this weekend! I will only be in Los Angeles for a few days but in that time we will be covering Moana, The BFG Blu-Ray release, ABC TV, and Disney Channel shows!  It is going to be a busy event but I will be sharing all along the way. Make sure to follow the hashtags #MOANAEvent, #TheBFGBluRay , #ABCTVEvent , and #StuckintheMiddleEvent for updates in real time. I am thrilled and I hope you follow along. Here is a little preview of what we will be covering….

First on our itinerary is an early screening of Moana and the short Inner Workings

Check out the trailer for Moana below……

We will be interviewing the following people in celebration of this new awesome movie!

Our interviews the next day are incredible!  The list that morning includes actors, musicians, directors, and producers.  In a few short hours we will be interviewing Lin-Manuel Miranda (YES! THAT LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA), Auli’i Cravalho (voice of Moana), Dwayne Johnson (voice of Maui), Directors Ron Clements and John Musker, Producer Osnat Shurer, Nicole Scherzinger (voice of Sina), and musician Opetaia Foa’i.  Later that day we will interview the director and producer of Inner Workings. The next day we will be walking the red carpet and attending the premiere of Moana!  Follow the hashtag #MoanaEvent

Disney's THE BFG

The next day we will get some behind the scenes fun with one of my favorite kid’s movies!  Our kids love the novel The BFG and they were thrilled to see it in theaters last summer.  We are celebrating the BluRay release with a special interview with the Lucy Dahl, the daughter of the late Roald Dahl who wrote the original story.  This is a movie that not many people saw in theaters but I do truly hope people add it to their Blu-Ray or DVD collection. Follow the hashtag #TheBFGBluRay

You can pre order your own Blu-Ray or DVD of The BFG – I’d love for you to order it here! The BFG is available for home viewing on November 29th!

After that we will be visiting the sets of two awesome ABC shows.


My favorite show this year on ABC is Speechless.  I cannot get enough of this show personally and I know so many readers feel the same. This show is revolutionary, it is also smart and funny.  I learn and laugh which is two birds with one stone.  I hope you will check out the trailer here….

We are also visiting the set of the hilarious Dr. Ken.  We will get an exclusive behind the scenes tour as well as a meet and greet with cast and producers.  Please follow along with the hashtag #ABCTVEvent


I haven’t seen Dr. Ken yet so I had to check out the trailer – you should too! It’s funny and I cannot wait to learn more…..


 And before we go, we will make a trip over to my kid’s favorite channel – The Disney Channel.  We will be pre-screening the new show Stuck in the Middle.  We will also meet and interview the cast!  I have so much more to share and I do hope you will follow myself and the other bloggers on the hashtag #StuckInTheMiddleEvent
 Here is one more trailer for you – my kids are really looking forward to this show!

If I am being honest…. I am already tired you guys!  But I cannot wait!  Follow along in real time on twitter @AlongtheWayKate and keep it here for post trip articles!  Thank you to Disney for hosting our group and letting us share with our readers!

Until Next Time ~ Kate
