Wreck It Ralph and My Sugar Rush

In California visiting the Disney Animation Studios we were presented with loads of candy. Why? Because the main world in Wreck It Ralph was Sugar Rush and Sugar Rush is made of candy.

So I did what any normal kid would do, I piled my plate full of candy and goodies.

And yes, I had quite the tummy ache the next day. Well, honestly I didn’t eat the candy it was used for building a fantastic race car that I’m going to share with you all very soon as a fantastic party idea to go along with the movie Wreck It Ralph. Our Wreck It Ralph press day included doing a voice over for Vanellope von Schweetz, interviews with Director Rich Moore and Producer Clark Gregg, a tour of the building with a sneak peek look at their next project and the Sugar Rush car contest. The tour was amazing because we got to see amazing character art and the process of some of the characters becoming their final look.

WRECK-IT RALPH

And I got to play the Fix-It-Felix video game old school style. My kids play it on the iPad. Yep that’s right. You can download Fix-it Felix for the iPad and iPhone.

Plus Ralph was there to pose with.

But the most fun, I think was realizing that the interview took place in Mickey’s magical hat.

Thank you to Disney for travel and accommodations so I could attend the Wreck It Ralph Press Day.
