Guardians of the Galaxy Event and More: Going Back to Cali

Someone recently asked if I am tired of going back to Cali after I announced that I was invited by Disney and Marvel for the Guardians of the Galaxy Event. No, I love going to LA.  I get to spend time with some of the best bloggers in the business and being a Disney event, I know it’s going to be busy and everything will be top notch.  So no, I don’t know that it’s possible for me to ever get tired of going back to Cali.

Guardians of the Galaxy Event and More: Going Back to Cali


This trip with Guardians of the Galaxy alone is just simply amazing, but that is only part of this event. Dreamworks and ABC Family are also taking part…there’s just so much to this trip, that I must share the whole itinerary with you.  So here you go!


Guardians of the Galaxy Event and More: Going Back to Cali


Wednesday, July 16th

I’ll be heading out of Orlando bright and early to fly to Los Angeles.  Once I arrive, I will have a little downtime before the fun with ABC Family begins.

We will be going to ABC where will be having dinner while viewing this week’s episodes of Chasing Life, Mystery Girls and Young and Hungry.  Having checked out these shows already, I am excited to see the upcoming episodes and prepare myself for the next day.

Mystery Girls Cast

Then we will head off to the set of Mystery Girls.  When we arrive we will tour the various soundstages where they film and interview stars Tori Spelling (“Holly” – @Tori_Spelling), Jennie Garth (“Charlie” – @jenniegarth) and Miguel Pinzon (“Nick” – @MiguelAPinzon) in-between observing rehearsal and going through the wardrobe department.  All of this and lunch!  I am a bit excited to hang with “Kelly and Donna” from those 90210 days.  It’s kinda fun to think I’ll be meeting those girls that I felt like I went to school with.

After a little shopping at the Disney Studios Store, we will have some serious one on one time during the Cocktails & Mingling with the “Moms of ABC Family” hour.  We will get to hang out, take photos and chat with actresses who are real-life moms or maybe just play one on TV.


The following actresses are scheduled to attend (subject to change):  Holly Marie Combs of Pretty Little Liars (@H_Combs), Laura Leighton of Pretty Little Liars (@LauraLeighton),  Constance Marie of Switched at Birth (@goconstance),
Marlee Matlin of Switched at Birth (@MarleeMatlin)

We will begin our day with a sneak preview of Big Hero 6 followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and a brief tour of the Animation Building followed by lunch at the Disney Commissary.  Then we will have a special screening of The Hundred-Foot Journey  – @the100footJourney


Then we get to interview Manish Dayal (“Hassan Haji”) from the film. – @DayalManish

To follow along with the theme of The Hundred-Foot Journey, we will be going to Le Cordon Bleu Los Angeles campus.  We will be getting a cooking lesson inspired by The Hundred-Foot Journey and then what we cook is what we’ll be eating for dinner! @LCBSchools

With full tummies and thoughts of there not being any way to top the day off, we head for a screening of Guardians of the Galaxy to prepare us for the next day….interviews with the cast and more.

  1. Undeniably believe that that you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be at the net the simplest thing
    to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst other people think about issues that they
    just do not recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as well as outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
