Making sure this time I had the right shoes after what happened at The Jungle Book Red Carpet Event, I got all dolled up in a green dress for the Finding Dory Red Carpet Event, in this case the carpet was actually blue.

As soon as I stepped onto the blue carpet, applause and yelling ensued and just when I thought hoped it was for me, I look over and see that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi had arrived (which totally explains the uproar in the crowd of on lookers).

Needless to say, I was even more excited. It was like we were destined to meet (which actually happened the next day during our interview, so check that out tomorrow). What a great way to start my walk down the blue carpet.

As I made my way towards El Capitan Theatre, I spotted Mario Lopez doing interviews (or actually in between interviews)

I also happen to see Johnny Knoxville walking by.

I tried to take it all in but there is just so much going on. I took some more photos before going inside and then made my way to my seat (after getting popcorn and a Sprite of course).

Getting to watch Finding Dory was awesome, especially with most of its cast being just a few rows behind me. The movie was definitely worth the wait because Dory’s story takes us on quite the adventure and is told in such a way that you experience a wave of emotions (“wave”…get it?, because of the ocean and Dory is a fish in the ocean).

The after party was actually on Hollywood Blvd. They literally blocked off the street for the event. It was surreal. There was a live band, food, games and an aquarium.

Needless to say, I was in my happy place!

The whole Finding Dory World Premiere Experience was absolutely awesome!!!! I had a blast and really enjoyed watching Finding Dory, which opens in theaters on June 17th. I can’t wait for my family to see it, I know they are going to love it just as much as I did.
