From New York to San Francisco: Kilts, Archery, Bagpipes & More! #DisneyPixarEvent

Day Two of the Disney/Pixar event was even more magical than the day before.  Like I said before, Disney/Pixar had a jam-packed schedule for the bloggers on Day Two and we were ready to take  it on!

Upon arriving at the Pixar Studios for the second time (lucky us!), we were treated to a wonderful breakfast in the atrium.  After our breakfast, we were divided into two groups; Clan Dingwalls and Clan McGuffins. I was in group Clan McGuffin. Check him out below:

During this time, we learned all about Kilts, Archery and Bagpipes. Let’s start off with Kilts.  Did you know that an outfit with a shirt, the kilt, apron, socks, etc. can cost around $800? Expensive, uh? It’s definitely on the expensive side but kilts are made to last a lifetime.  And never call it a skirt — only women wear skirts. 😉 And for those of you who are wondering if anything is worn under the kilts — many, many years ago men wore nothing but nowadays, they can wear whatever they want.  You know, to keep warm. 😉

Then it was time to learn some Archery.  Something my husband has been trying his hardest to teach me for years.  He’s a bow-hunter and may I add he’s a very skilled archer at that.  He takes archery seriously so when he heard I was going to do this, he was puzzled. But that’s another story. lol

We were brought outside the studios for some archery. Check out some photos below:

How’s my form? Do I look like a professional? HA! I didn’t get to hit the bulls eye but at least I managed to hit the target itself (I saw many arrows on the grass) unlike my friend Ana Flores.  I believe she was the only one in our group who hit the bulls eye.  This was one of the highlights of my time at Pixar Studios.  I never thought I would do something like this.  It was so much fun.  It’s not as easy as it may look but it’s definitely worth a “shot.”

After the awesome archery challenge, we were off to another area for some Bagpipe 101.  There we learned everything there is to know about bagpipes and its origin.

Once the bagpipe class was done, we were instructed back inside Pixar Studios for some once in a lifetime interviews (to be posted on another post!).

Later in the evening, we had the privilege of seeing CHIMPANZEE for the very first time! You can read my review on film here.
