Win four tickets to see Tomorrowland!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Giveaways and product reviews

We have our winners! Thanks for your entries everyone!


I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting to see Disney’s Tomorrowland since I saw the trailer. (You can watch that right here.) I’m all kinds of excited about this one. Not only is it directed by Brad Bird, the guy behind some of our favourite films including Ratatouille, The Incredibles, and The Iron Giant, but it also stars George Clooney. ENOUGH SAID.

If you haven’t heard much about Tomorrowland yet, here’s the official description via the movie folks. (Do yourself a favour and read the following in a deep and raspy “movie guy” voice.)

“Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world — and them —forever.”

I have a family pack of four tickets to give away to one lucky family to the Ottawa sneak preview. (Yes, BEFORE it opens to the public.) It’s taking place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 20 at SilverCity Gloucester.

Want to win? Please read on!

I love all of them, really, but to choose, one it would have to be Mary Poppins! Thanks for the chance – Tomorrowland looks really good!

Yeah, Mary Poppins is good. Also good are Old Yeller and Darby O’Gill and the Little People.

Too many good ones – but have to say “Bolt”. One of the most underrated Disney films.

I love all the movies from Disney…but I love the movie UP and the message that it is not always about the destination but to enjoy the journey….

I second Bolt. Great music and message.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18).
