**Disney is sending me to San Francisco for the #GoodDinoEvent #Waltagram #InsideOutBloggers #MilesEvent for an all expenses paid trip to cover press with 24 other bloggers. All opinions are mine.**
Can you say that 10 times fast? I am so very excited that I will be joining 24 other awesome bloggers next Tuesday in San Francisco, actually flying with one Jenn Park from (Jenn Unplugged) from Elmira to Detroit to California. It only took 9 seat changes, it was like playing musical chairs airplane style, but we did it. Our last trip together we laughed and talked the whole way there and back. So I was very excited when I found out she was going also. When I got my invite to join Disney, Pixar & Disney Junior in San Francisco, I was SO excited as I have never been to San Francisco and I have never been to Pixar. So I will be telling a little bit about each of the movies/shows that we will be learning more about.
We will be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel which has an awesome view as you can see while we are there for our press trip. Important hashtags: #GoodDinoEvent #Waltagram #InsideOutBloggers #MilesEvent
We will be going to Chevys Fresh Mex . I really enjoy Mexican food so I am excited. While we are in San Francisco we will be taking a tour of the Pixar campus, very exciting! We will also be doing reviews:
