This past weekend we were invited to join some other bloggers for a party to celebrate the home release of Aladdin! Both the original animated classic and the new live action will be available on Blu-Ray+DVD and 4K starting tomorrow September 10th. Check out this latest post to hear more about this magical afternoon and find out how to enter to win a movie prize pack!
Aladdin was a favorite movie for both of us when we were kids. We were excited this year for the live action as well. (We even celebrated with a special cocktail recipe when the movie hit theaters!) When Disney Studios reached out and invited us to a blogger party to celebrate the at-home release we couldn’t wait to attend. The date ended up being during the same time we had some family in town, so we had to alter plans just a bit. Andrew ended up staying at home with his brother and niece, while Julie and her sister-in-law Kelly decided to attend the party. The ladies were ready for a fun afternoon of paint and sip.
The event was hosted at Painting with a Twist (PWAT) in Orlando. These studios are located across the nation and host classes and private parties where attendees complete a step-by-step canvas led by an instructor. All of the supplies are provided by PWAT and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. It is the perfect activity for a girls get together, a date night, and more!
The Orlando PWAT studio has a little snack and drink bar on site. We were able to enjoy some wine at a really great price. While they had a few snacks for purchase we had actually packed our own little picnic with sandwiches, veggies, and hummus. (We were also smartly instructed to not mix up our painting water and drinks!)
Disney Studios had provided some swag bags for the event as well. Each blogger received posters and other fun items like hats, luggage tags, and more. (We wanted to share our haul with you guys, so make sure to see below for more info on entering to win an official Aladdin prize pack!)
With the Aladdin soundtrack playing to set the scene our instructor began to show us how to create a gorgeous “A Whole New World” painting. It was cool to hear that Disney developed this particular design especially for PWAT! It was amazing to see how with a few dollops of paint and a cut-out lamp template we were able to turn a blank canvas into such a beautiful and whimsical design. Step by step we built upon the layers. Here is a peek at the work in progress…
By the end of the class everyone had an awesome “A Whole New World” painting to take home and enjoy. We had a really fun time at PWAT creating the art and hanging with other Disney loving bloggers. We wanted to extend a big thank you to our instructor Natalie, Painting with a Twist Orlando, our movie rep Edgar, and Disney Studios for hosting this really fun event.
We feel so inspired to make our next date night at home an Aladdin move marathon! Make sure to check out both the live-action ALADDIN and the original animated classic’s Walt Disney Signature edition, on Digital August 27 & on Blu-ray™ September 10.
