Disney voice actor Kat Cressida to host meet and greet in Auburn

Tickets are available for this two-day fandom event at the Outlet Collection’s Unlock the Con on Feb. 17 and 18.

Ever wanted to know what it takes to become a voiceover icon, providing a voice to the most beloved animated characters? Ever wanted to meet a Disney actor without spending hundreds of dollars and having to drive into Seattle?

For the third weekend of February, animation and video game fans will get just that chance at Unlock the Con in Auburn.

On Saturday, Feb. 17, and Sunday, Feb. 18, animation fans will get the chance to meet, converse with and even have brunch or dinner with voiceover legend Kat Cressida, with a portion of the proceeds going to national pediatric cancer foundations.

“What these guys have done at Unlock the Con is really sort of narrowed it down to ‘What’s the really important thing?’” Cressida said. “So you get the signings, you get the one-on-one time, you get to talk about your favorite episode of ‘Dexter’s Laboratory’ or your favorite ‘Toy Story’ character.”

Best known for her work as DeeDee from “Dexter’s Laboratory,” the Black Widow Bride Constance Hatchaway from the Disney Parks ride “The Haunted Mansion,” Jessie from “Toy Story” and many more, Cressida is giving animation, horror and Disney fans a unique experience with her two-day Unlock the Con event.

“What’s really cool about this particular experience is they really make it a personalized and intimate convention experience,” said Cressida.

SATURDAY

On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Cressida will have a meet and greet with fans, where she will autograph pictures and Funko Pops of her most popular characters while chatting with fans.

From 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, fans will be able to join Cressida for a limited dinner and an exclusive private panel, complete with a Q&A, where fans are encouraged to ask Cressida about the voiceover and entertainment industry and her stories of getting to work with the biggest names in Hollywood.

SUNDAY

Kicking off the day with a Sunday “Brunch With The Bride” — named for Cressida’s “The Haunted Mansion” character — from 10:15 a.m. to 11 a.m., fans will get another chance to learn more about Cressida’s work and her behind the scenes stories.

Following the brunch will be the Sunday meet and greet from 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“If you’re a voiceover fan, or an animation fan, or a Funko Pop fan or a Disney fan, it’s definitely an awesome, awesome opportunity for fans, and it’s much more affordable than going to a [big] convention,” Cressida said.

Meet and greet tickets for both days start at $6.95 for adults, with free general admission for guests age 13 and under. VIP options for the Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch range from $24.95 to $64.95 for all ages. Tickets are available through TIXR at tixr.com/e/92370.
