We’ve got exciting news to share! We’ve just unveiled Memory Maker – an incredible new way to capture your memories at Walt Disney World Resort. Now everyone can be in the picture at hundreds of Disney PhotoPass™ locations, including select attractions, character and show dining experiences. Strike a royal pose in front of Cinderella Castle, get caught screaming down the Splash Mountain plunge or just enjoy a hug with your favorite Disney character … all those great shots are magically yours. And there’s no need to worry about buying each image because with Memory Maker you’ll receive unlimited digital photos to view, share and download.
You can save $50 when you purchase Memory Maker in advance! You’ll receive unlimited digital photos for $149 when you purchase at least three days before your first picture is taken, compared to the regular price of $199 when purchased at select merchandise and Disney PhotoPass sales centers throughout Walt Disney World Resort. You can find more information and purchase Memory Maker by visiting mydisneyexperience.com/memorymaker.
Getting started is easy! Visit Disney PhotoPass photographers who can be found at all the great photo locations throughout our theme parks, water parks and Downtown Disney. They know all the right angles to capture great pictures. Then smile, have fun and make sure to ask for magic shots. Your images will be linked to your My Disney Experience account where you can view them, add fun borders and download unlimited copies to share, print and post as often as you’d like!
It’s Friday the 13th – and to mark the day, we’ve created a special Lucky 13 infographic that features some of the ways the number relates to Disney Parks. I bet a majority of our readers know that the grandfather clock in The Haunted Mansion features only one number on its face – 13. But do you know the others without looking back at our earlier story?
Sure, we’ve featured Beast’s Castle before in our Disney Parks After Dark series but this week’s photo is a favorite. It’s an amazing shot of the bridge to the castle as the sun sets on New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park.
Do you have a favorite Disney Parks attraction or location to visit when the sun sets? Let us know and we may feature it here on the Disney Parks Blog.
For those of you who love our delicious and oh-so-sweet Gourmet apples, here is a new one to add to your list during your visit to Disneyland Resort!
Nassau, Bahamas is a port Disney Cruise Line has called on every year since our inaugural sailing in 1998. Just one visit here, a city of Old World colonial charm mixed with unique Caribbean style, makes it easy to see why this tropical destination is a guest favorite.
Everyone knows the song “There’s no place like home for the holidays.” The smell of Christmas cookies coming out of a warm oven, the family tree trimmed with tinsel and hundreds of lights, and of course the company of our loved ones.
A few weeks ago I shared details about the new Marketplace Co Op location coming to Downtown Disney Marketplace in spring 2014 (http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/11/marketplace-co-op-coming-to-downtown-disney-marketplace-in-early-2014/). This location will occupy the space that is currently Team Mickey, and will feature six different mini-shops within the one big shop. One of those shops will be D-Tech on Demand, a place to personalize and customize your own electronic accessories. I’m happy to share that Guests visiting Downtown Disney West Side during the holidays can get a sneak preview of D-Tech on Demand in action at the Disney Truck Shop. I recently visited this mobile location to get a first look.
Author’s note: The story that follows originally ran in the Disneyland Line, a fantastic magazine published exclusively for Disneyland Resort cast members. I loved the story so much, I wanted to share it with you. Please enjoy the following, written by my friend, Senior Internal Communications Specialist Ralphie Giron.
Last week, we shared a photo gallery of Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade stepping off during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park. This week, we’re back with a brand-new video of the merry procession. Check it out below.
