Zootopia Event and Zootopia Cupcake Toppers
On Saturday, February 20th I will be in Walt Disney World helping Disney celebrate their new movie Zootopia. This is known as the #ZootopiaEvent or AKA “Bobbie’s Vacay Away From Everyone”. No matter what you call it, it is going to be fun!
Here are some of the fun things we will be doing!
Staying at the Gorgeous Animal Kingdom Lodge, Oh My!
I am so stoked about this!! I cannot believe I am going to be staying at such an amazing place 🙂 Inspired by the traditional African kraal, the horseshoe-curved design provides spectacular views of 4 lush savannas that over 200 hoofed animals and birds call home. Delight in dazzling pool areas, exciting animal programs and one of the largest collections of African art in the United States as you experience your own African safari adventure with a touch of Disney magic. Just for good measure this is what my room looks like:
Marshall better be glad he has such an amazing trip planned or I probably wouldn’t leave the room!! Haha! I just can’t believe I will be spending 3 nights in such a beautiful room!
Dinner and Bowling at Splitsville
First of all, how fun is that name? I love it! The picture looks like a fun place and I can’t wait to see it in person. I took a sneak peek at the menu and it looks like they have some really amazing options. Definitely not like the bowling alleys here in our neck of the woods. They have sushi which includes this lovely Crab Ragoon roll I have my eye on, even the appetizers sound fancy. You can look for yourself HERE. I can’t wait to watch everyone bowl and get plenty of pictures!
Backstage Safari Tour
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this. I love animals and when we went on the Muppet Event I got to go to the zoo for the first time. Which was AMAZING. This time I will be behind the scenes checking out all of the amazing things that Disney’s Animal Kingdom does for the animals. This includes an insider’s look at conservation, animal nutrition and medicine, animal care and behavioral studies. Highlights will include visits to the backstage animal housing area, the Animal Nutrition Center, the Veterinary Hospital and an experience on Kilimanjaro Safaris! Again, I can’t wait to take some amazing pictures. I am not sure if it is allowed but if it is I will definitely be posting some videos on Facebook and maybe even Periscope!
Screening of Zootopia and a party at Animal Kingdom!!
It looks like the animals are going to have some competition because the party animals will be invading their space! Not only are we screening Zootopia at the AMC at Disney Springs but then we will be going to Animal Kingdom to party the night away. It will be a night of adventure in the Harambe Village Marketplace as we explore the exciting flavors of Disney’s Animal Kingdom park and enjoy a festive dinner celebrating Disney’s newest film!
Zootopia Celebrity Interviews
Of course it wouldn’t be a Disney press trip without some killer celebrity interviews. I am over the moon about these! We will be interviewing Jason Bateman (voice of “Nick Wilde”), directors Directors Byron Howard & Rich Moore and the lovely Ginnifer Goodwin (voice of “Judy Hopps”). I am always amazed that I get to interview such amazing talent.
After rubbing elbows with the stars we will be heading to Hollywood Studios for a fun filled day! For around 2 1/2 hours we will have some free time to grab lunch and maybe ride some rides. I am not a big ride fan. I used to be but anxiety keeps me off of them now. However I would love to check out the Muppet 3D and Toystory Mania. We will just have to see how fast I can move around the park because we are meeting up for a fun filled evening! First up is dinner at the Hollywood Prop Shop. I tried and tried to find information about this online but couldn’t. Then after changing my search terms I found out that it is a private venue for parties. So, maybe a private dinner for us super awesome bloggers? I guess we will find out. It looks a tad bit dark so I am thinking a bigger flash for my camera is needed!
The awesomeness just keeps coming! After the super awesome dinner we are attending the “Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular” fireworks show and dessert party. You will never begin to understand how excited I am over this. People that know me in real life know that I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I have been since I was a little girl. Of course back then it wasn’t popular for girls to like “boy stuff” and I got made fun of, but I didn’t care. I am so glad I lived to see a time when girls could like things like Star Wars! Anyway, back to the party. We will be trying Star Wars themed desserts ( hello Darth Vader cupcakes) and then viewing an amazing fireworks show! I hope I don’t cry like I did when we went to the Mickey’s Christmas Party and watched Cinderella’s castle light up.
You can’t go to Disney World without going to Magic Kingdom. Unfortunately I will only have about 4 hours in the park because I will have to head back to the airport to go home :*( But I will be making the most of my time by going to… BE OUR GUEST! Yes, I am super, super excited to be going there for lunch! It looks amazing and I can’t think of a better way to end this amazing trip!
Zootopia Cupcake Toppers
Zootopia opens in theater March 4th and if you haven’t seen the trailer yet, you can watch it right here:
To get ready for the big opening day I have some cute cupcake toppers for you! (Images used with permission. For PERSONAL use only!)
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
