This week on the Disney Parks Blog, we started our countdown to the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios by taking a look back at one of the park’s opening day attractions – The Great Movie Ride.
I adore this attraction, which takes guests on a trip through movie history. Which scene featured in the attraction is your favorite?
If you’re excited for the park’s May 1 milestone, you also have to take a look at the sneak peek Steven Miller shared of the park’s special commemorative merchandise. Special pins, T-shirts and more will be available.
Guests coming to Disneyland Resort tomorrow, April 19, and on Earth Day, April 22, can celebrate Earth Month at the Downtown Disney District! Be sure to check out the Wyland Clean Water Mobile Learning Experience, where guests can participate in a Clean Water Challenge and solve disturbances to the nation’s water habitats via a 4D theater experience. DJ Wendy also will provide “atmosphere” music.
On April 19, learn about the environment with our friends from Inside the Outdoors Foundation, Bolsa Chica Conservancy, Orange County Water District, and more. On April 22, guests can interact with an exhibit hosted by the Disneyland Resort about reducing, reusing and recycling, clean commuting and connecting with nature, paint an environmental mural with the Wyland Foundation and participate in interactive demonstrations with the Southern California Edison Mobile Energy Unit. MUZEO also will display art made completely out of recycled materials.
All offerings take place near the main stage by ESPN Zone from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on April 19 and 2 – 6 p.m. on April 22.
It’s been one month since the “wildest ride in the wilderness” reopened after an extended refurbishment here at Disneyland park. Since then, our guests have been telling us how impressed they are with the improved track and new effects at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Today we’ve got a special look at these improvements as they took shape over the last year.
I’ve been visiting Walt Disney World Resort for more than 30 years. I’ve spent more than half of that time working (or playing as I like to say) as a Disney Cast Member. I’m often asked by friends and family to help with planning vacations to Disney Parks. One topic that regularly comes up during conversations is around merchandise – What are the must have things should I get during my visit? To help answer that question, I visited Magic Kingdom Park to highlight some of my favorite merchandise items in this short video.
Of all the firsts to experience at Disney Parks, rides on favorite attractions may be the most memorable. And for many guests, that special memory happens during a first spin in an oversized teacup at Mad Tea Party. Today, we’re continuing our blog series of different firsts at Disney Parks at the attraction inspired by the Mad Hatter’s party sequence in Walt Disney’s animated classic Alice in Wonderland.
The Frozen Royal Reception cottage in Fantasyland at Disneyland park takes on a different feeling in the early morning hours before sunrise. I love the light reflecting off the wet surface that makes the cottage enchanting.
With the passing of Disney Legend Milt Albright last week, I thought it would be fitting to pay tribute to him and highlight a few of the many successes of his 45-year career with Disney.
This week’s suggestion as to how you can show your Disney Side at our 24-hour “Rock Your Disney Side” all-night party – or anytime, really – is sure to please Minnie Mouse fans. It’s step-by-step directions on how you can give your nails a perfect Minnie makeover!
Beginning tomorrow, April 18, guests at Disney Parks on both coasts will be able to enjoy an exclusive sneak peek at Walt Disney Studios’ “Maleficent,” which opens in theaters May 30.
With the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train opening later this spring, this week we thought we’d review some of the best video content we’ve shared so far around this attraction. Just to review, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was Inspired by the 1937 Disney animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” – but unlike Magic Kingdom Park’s original Snow White’s Scary Adventures attraction, this new experience tells the tale from the dwarfs’ perspective.
