My entire family loves all things Disney. We have annual passes to Disneyland and California Adventure and we watch every Disney movie there is (I won't admit the number of times each, ahem). So needless to say, I'm quite excited to attend a Disney preview event featuring three great upcoming releases: Finding Nemo 3D, Cinderella Diamond Edition and Secret of the Wings.

Next week, I'll be taking the train (my very first train ride -- and I'm doing it alone!) from my home in San Diego up to Los Angeles to attend the #DisneyInHomeBloggers press event, where I'll learn all about these three great upcoming Disney features. And the truth is, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

As I said, I adore all things Disney and the opportunity to preview Finding Nemo 3D, Cinderella Diamond Edition and Secret of the Wings, along with some amazing behind the scenes events, has me eager with anticipation.

Behind the scenes

In addition to advance screenings of the three movies, I'll be touring the Disney Toon Studios for a behind the scenes look at the making of Secret of the Wings, and I'll tour both the California Adventure Animation Building and the Animation Research Library's collection of Cinderella memorabilia and artifacts.

Leaving me feeling slightly guilty is a meet and greet with Tinker Bell and Periwinkle and a visit to Cinderella's transformation lounge-- my daughter would do anything for such an opportunity!

Movies galore

I'm eager to share my thoughts on the movies with you after I return, but until then, following is some information on these three Disney movies your kids -- and you -- are sure to love.

Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo 3D

On Sept. 14, Finding Nemo will return to theaters in 3D. "Finding Nemo was originally shot in 3D," said John Lasseter, chief creative officer for Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios and the film's executive producer. "At last, with today’s technological advances, this spectacular underwater world can be seen as it was intended." On Dec. 4, 2012, Finding Nemo will be released in high-definition Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and Digital platforms for home viewing.


Cinderella: Diamond Edition

At the stroke of midnight, Oct. 2, 2012, dreams around the globe really will come true when The Walt Disney Studios opens its vault to release Cinderella in the highly anticipated Blu-ray Diamond Edition Collection. The classic movie will be even better with bonus features, such as interactive games and activities.

Secret of the Wings

Secret of the Wings

An all-new, original full-length CG-animated feature film, Secret of the Wings, debuts on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital on Oct. 23, 2012. It's the first time Tinker Bell will fly on Disney Blu-ray 3D. The movie stars Tinker Bell and her fairy friends Fawn, Iridessa, Rosetta, Silvermist and Vidia. We'll also meet a brand new winter fairy, Periwinkle.
