My First Visit To Disneyland & California Adventure #Disneyland #PiratesLifeEvent

My First Visit To Disneyland & California Adventure #Disneyland #PiratesLifeEvent

A couple weeks ago was my first visit to California and man, we were all over the place. I went to the Pirates Of The Caribbean Premiere and Red {Aqua} Carpet. I attended the Pirates Press Junket and even interviewed quite a few stars and the directors from Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. That’s a lot, right? Oh no, my friends. I also went to Disneyland and California Adventure, courtesy of Disney. Even though I only spent a few days in California, I think I can officially say that I have been all up in California’s business.

A Visit To The Walt Disney Archives In Burbank, California #PiratesLifeEvent

A Visit To The Walt Disney Archives In Burbank, California #PiratesLifeEvent

On my recent trip to California, I got the opportunity to see some of the best that Disney has to offer. I spent a day at Disneyland and California Adventure {my first visit!}, attended the premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, visited Walt Disney’s Office and I got to tour the Walt Disney Archives. The Walt Disney Archives is the place where all the history of Disney and, in particular, Walt Disney is kept. If you want to know the true history of the Disney company, then this is the place to go. However, Disney places high regards on its history, so seeing the Walt Disney Archives is not just something anyone can do. Most of the Walt Disney Archives are not open to the public, or at least I don’t think they are. So, the fact that I got to see some of this history with my own eyes is pretty cool if you ask me. I feel quite privileged! [Read more…]

Perhaps most well known for his devious role as the self-serving pirate, Barbossa, in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush has taken part in a wide range of films like Gods Of Egypt, Intolerable Cruelty and Shakespeare In Love, as well as the upcoming Genius, in which he plays Albert Einstein. I particularly enjoy his speeches in the Pirates franchise where his words seem to role off the tongue like a Shakespearean sonnet. There are many unexpected layers to his character in the upcoming 5th film in the franchise, as we will soon find out. But don’t worry, there are no spoilers.

New Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Featurette #PiratesLife #PiratesOfTheCaribbean

I have been a fan of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise since the beginning. I believe that I have seen every single one of the films in the theater, too. You guys know how much I love to travel to the Caribbean and there is just something so magical and fun about the life of a pirate {the fictionalized Disney version, of course}. The setting. The lifestyle. The rum. The whole thing just draws me in. ;) And, Johnny Depp. Is he not the perfect pirate? I was fortunate enough to get to travel to LA to see the Hollywood premiere of the latest installment in the franchise, which hits theaters everywhere on May 26th, courtesy of Disney. Now I am sharing pictures from the premiere and my opinions with you. Read my review, watch the movie for yourself and let me know if you agree with my Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review in the comments section below. [Read more…]
