Sasaki Time on The Red Carpet: The Lone Ranger Premiere at Disney California Adventure!

Hi everybody! On Saturday, my friend and photographer Benny and I were both invited to cover the press line for the Red Carpet Premiere of The Lone Ranger at Disney California Adventure!

This was not only both of our first time's covering such an event but felt deeply honored and lucky to cover the event as well!

Disneyland had been the home to all the Pirates of The Caribbean movie premieres and now it was time for Disney California Adventure to host a major World Premiere as well!

I couldn't think of a better location to host the premiere than the theme park that was relaunched just a little over a year ago with the addition of Buena Vista Street and Cars Land!
After parking and taking a short shuttle drive over to the resort, we checked in and were paired with a media host. Our host Ron was awesome and took care of us allowing us to quickly get to our location on the press line and then getting us to various locations for great photos after the red carpet was over.
Sasaki Time mascot Lil Oishi was thrilled to set "foot" on the red carpet!
The button they were passing out were almost bigger than Lil Oishi himself!
Here are Benny and I at our press location! We are masked up and ready to go!
