Pixar Fest is in full swing! Let’s celebrate with a GIVEAWAY!

pixar fest giveaway

Pixar Fest is in full swing at the Disneyland Resort.  This first time festival has been a hit with guests that are excited to celebrate their love of Pixar now through September 3rd.  Pixar Fest is the largest celebration of Pixar stories and characters ever at any Disney park.  The entire Disneyland Resort is getting in on the action.  Special limited time treats, merchandise, and character meets are in both parks, Downtown Disney, and even Resort hotels.

I was thrilled to visit Pixar Fest on opening day! I even had a moment to chat with Disneyland Resort Ambassador Alexa Garcia about all that is new!

Make sure to check out all that you need to know about Pixar Fest and start planning your trip today!

Readers were so excited to see all that is new, but they seemed especially enthusiastic about all the new merchandise. When I can, I love to share the love with our friends here.  Disneyland was kind enough to gift me with a few adorable Pixar Fest products when I attended their media event. As much as I would love to keep these for myself, we know this is a fun way to say thank you for growing with us! One lucky subscriber is going to win a Pixar Fest Prize Pack!

Before we get to the giveaway, I want to share about my favorite travel company for discount family vacation packages.  The only discount family travel company I endorse is Get Away Today. I know there are several ‘discount Disney tickets’ offers out there, but some are just too good to be true.  What makes Get Away Today different?  Get Away Today is a trusted Disney travel partner.  I have met with Get Away Today representatives at Disneyland events personally.  I would never work with a company that is not endorsed by Disney, no matter what kind of discount they claim.  Get Away Today is not a ‘too good to be true’ discount, but they do offer discounted rates on tickets, hotels, and vacation packages.  If your family is thinking of visiting the Disneyland Resort for Pixar Fest, you should check out rates for packages now. Since Get Away Today offers the best price guaranteed, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’re always getting the best deal. Make sure to mention promo code Highlights to get an additional $10 off your Disneyland vacation.You may be pleasantly surprised when you see package rates!

OK – so who is ready for a giveaway!?
