Hello lovelies, hope you had a great weekend! I just made it back home safely from being out in Los Angeles with Disney for a few days. I always have a great time, you guys know that and my experience at the world premiere of Mary Poppins Returns was extremely memorable! You know that Disney knows how to throw a fun party and they did just that!
The red carpet, and after party was very festive with jugglers, themed characters from the movie, craft stations, food for miles, photo opt stations and so much more! I got to see so many celebrities there but the highlight of my evening was meeting Dick Van Dyke! I didn’t get to take a picture with him but he was so gracious to shake my hand in the Dolby theater (he sat in my section) so amazing! Check out all the snaps inside and don’t forget, Mary Poppins Returns flys into theaters on December 19th!
