I was invited as media to LA to attend a press event for The Little Mermaid. Accommodations were provided for the event. No additional compensation was received. All opinions are my own. One of the most amazing parts of my LA trip last month was the sit down interview with Jodi Benson (voice of Ariel) plus writer & director John Musker and Ron Clements. It really was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I was so honored to be among such amazing talent, and have them take time out of their day to speak with us bloggers.
