    With Ponyville Ciderfest 2016 less than four months away, there’s no better time to start rolling out our big announcements and guests that will make this year even more special than the last. Princess Ember captured the hearts of the fandom when she battled through a grueling obstacle course to become the new Dragon Lord, and we’re honored and excited to welcome Ember’s voice, Willa Milner, to Ponyville Ciderfest this October! This is Willa’s second appearance at a My Little Pony convention (and second convention ever!) attending MLP-MSP 3 in Minneapolis, Minnesota earlier this year. In fact if you were there, you already may have heard about this announcement at Closing Ceremonies!

    If you would like to meet Willa at Ponyville Ciderfest 2016, weekend badges are available, as well as a wide variety of sponsor badges! Don’t forget to book a room at our hotel, the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee too! Applications for volunteers and panelists are open as well.

    We hope to see you with Willa Milner at Ponyville Ciderfest 2016, October 28th-30th!

    Working as a professional musician and original artist since she was 15 years old, Ali “Willa” Milner is no stranger to performance. When she decided to add “actor” to her skill set in 2013, bookings followed shortly thereafter. A short time after attaining an agent, she landed the coveted role of Liz in MGM’s If I Stay. Working alongside A-list Hollywood actors did nothing but boost her confidence and the LA premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre was the cherry on top.

    This young woman shows no signs of stopping and has added voice acting to her skill set with the introduction of Princess Ember on the wildly popular show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Following the release of her new musical project Willa, she made the move to unify her acting and musician brands under the same name.

    Fans can expect an exciting year to come with the premiere of Family Channel’s Lost and Found Music Studios, Hallmark’s When Calls The Heart, and more.
