The other day I opened my email on my phone while my husband was preparing dinner and almost passed out when I saw an email from Disney with the subject line “Disney Invites You to LA 5/6-5/8.” Seriously, when I opened that email I couldn’t even eat dinner, I was SO excited that I was going to have the opportunity to be one of 25 lucky bloggers on this trip with Disney. I kept reading the email over and over and telling my husband about it. He just said “you’re going, right?” Of course I responded right away to say I was going and then put leave in at work the next day! I keep reading the email over and over to ensure that it wasn’t an April Fools Joke and that it was actually meant for me….sure enough I am going! 🙂
I am excited for this trip which will include a special screening of Tomorrowland, which opens in theaters everywhere May 22 and which stars…. George Clooney and Hugh Laurie and is directed by Brad Bird! We will also be visiting the Disney Archives to learn about Walt’s vision of “Tomorrowland” and a trip to Los Angeles wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Disneyland!!!!! AH, I am SO super excited as I’ve never been to Disneyworld or Disneyland!
Take a look at the latest trailer from “Tomorrowland” Disney’s riveting mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” where a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor bound by a shared destiny embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.
Walt Disney Archives
Preserving our legacy is something taken very seriously at The Walt Disney Company. In fact, for more than four decades, the Walt Disney Archives has carefully safeguarded the most treasured items from Disney’s fabled history.
The Walt Disney Archives had its beginning in 1970 — while Disney was still reeling over the passing of its founder, Walt Disney. At the time, Walt’s brother and the Chairman of Board Roy O. Disney, wanted to ensure that as key imagineers and animators began to retire, their vast knowledge of Disney history was not forgotten.
Disneyland-The Happiest Place on Earth. We will be visiting “Tomorrowland” here!!
Here in Tomorrowland, the future is today! So, ready your rockets, boys and girls, as you blast into the twin orbits of innovation and exploration. But Tomorrowland is more than a fascinating collection of gizmos — it’s a spaceport where your imagination lands each day to glimpse otherworldly wonders, embark on fantastic voyages, and witness the pioneering of the human spirit.
Tomorrowland embodies the Space Age and the optimistic advancement of humanity, promising the day when we will touch the stars. Marvel at the bold rings and sweeping spires. The “Googie” architecture — a space age look that was enormously popular during the 1950s — first appeared in Tomorrowland in 1959.
Shiny orbs, kinetic sculptures, metallic finishes and mechanical touches also raise your sights skyward, lending a feeling of otherworldliness to the attraction architecture. Further, the plants in Tomorrowland are meant to be edible! The visionary landscaping doubles as a potential farm, projecting an ecologically astute future, where humanity makes the most of its resources.
It’s a great big beautiful tomorrow — here, in Tomorrowland!
