Well, what do they have in common? They are all in the Disney family and are all tied together in an upcoming press trip that I'll be attending this October. That's right! Women and Their Pretties is taking the baby bump to California for one last Disney event before Baby Santos is born. Like the other Disney events that I've attended, this is an all expenses paid, invite-only trip strictly for bloggers. I'll be joining 24 other bloggers, including my best blogging buddy, Tessa at MamasGeeky.com. While you unfortunately can't tag along, you can absolutely be involved by following the hashtags on social media and by submitting questions for the cast in the comments section below this post. Here's the full details:
So what exactly will I be doing in California for 3 days?
Thor Ragnarok Event
The newest Marvel movie to crash into the big screen this fall is is Thor: Ragnarok! In Marvel Studios’ THOR: RAGNAROK, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk! THOR: RAGNAROK is directed by Taika Waititi and returns Chris Hemsworth starring as Thor and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. They are joined by Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.

For the first time ever, kids can create their own custom Droid™ and bring it to life!

Then kids can level-up their inventor expertise and reconfigure their Droid to give it new skills, or design any Droid they can dream up. The kit comes with everything kids need to create and customize their R2 Unit straight out of the box. Initial assembly is easy with step-by-step instructions to create their Droid, and control it in Drive Mode, Self-Nav, Force™ Mode, and more. After mastering their Droid Inventor skills, kids continue on to challenges that spark creativity and get them inventing brand-new Droids.
