I hope you’ve been enjoying my suggestions for excursions to take during your Disney cruise in Hawaii. Last but not least, let’s check out what you can experience on the lush island of O’ahu. Not only is O’ahu abounding in natural beauty like the rest of the Hawaiian islands, it is steeped in rich history and home to Honolulu’s thriving modern metropolis, providing Port Adventure options for every interest.
Honolulu is also your gateway to the world’s newest Disney resort and spa, Aulani, in nearby Ko Olina. I highly recommend booking a stay here before or after your cruise, depending on which of our two Hawaiian voyages you join. What’s more, you can reserve a room just for your Honolulu port day with the Be Our Guest at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina Port Adventure. It’s the perfect opportunity to experience the magic and amenities of this first-class resort!
Those who want to venture a little farther out will love our Explore And Taste Oahus North Shore Honolulu Port Adventure. We take you on a tour of the coast to see famous places, including the Dole Pineapple Plantation and the picturesque Byodo-In Temple located at the base of 2,000-foot cliffs. You’ll also travel to the surfing mecca of the world, visiting the North Shore’s Sunset Beach and Waimea Valley, before stopping at Haleiwa Beach Park where Green Sea Turtles occasionally rest on the golden sand or swim in the aquamarine water close to shore.
I can’t wait to see “Tomorrowland” which is now playing in theatres. To celebrate the release of this new motion picture, we are offering a T-shirt for adults, women and kids on the Disney Parks online store from May 22-28.
Designed by Disney Design Group artist Richard Terpstra, the shirts will contain a glow-in-the-dark “Tomorrowland” logo. The back of the shirts will also have the word “Tomorrowland.”
You can find the shirt by visiting this link. Please allow 3-5 weeks for delivery; express shipping will not be available.
While the shirts will only be found online, we are releasing an open edition pin at Disney Parks. I couldn’t resist recreating a scene from the film using this new pin as a prop. Look for the pin in a variety of merchandise locations at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts.
In Disney’s riveting mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” a jaded scientist and an optimistic teen embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space. Directed by two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird, “Tomorrowland” stars Academy Award® winner George Clooney as scientist and former boy-genius Frank Walker and Britt Robertson as Casey Newton. Featuring a screenplay by “Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, “Tomorrowland” promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.

Nighttime at Disneyland Resort is now a little brighter with the release of new Made with Magic items. Created especially for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, we have introduced a celebratory ear hat and a magical paintbrush.

Have you ever noticed the ceiling inside The Land pavilion at Epcot? Next time you’re rushing to Soarin’, waiting to take a trip through Living With The Land, or grabbing a bite to eat at Garden Grill or Sunshine Seasons, be sure to check it out. The ceiling is festooned with four balloons that each represent one of the earth’s seasons.
This weekend, we kicked off summer with 24 straight hours of fun at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. And during our live blog coverage from both coasts, we shared nearly 50 stories beginning with the official start to the “Coolest Summer Ever” in Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World and then continuing with coverage from the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Here’s a look at some of our favorite highlights.
You may have noticed, like I did, that the Disney Parks Blog is all decked out in its Tomorrowland best this week. Seeing all those great images made me think: What if Space Mountain had a never before discovered, hidden rocket launch platform that could take you to places you’ve only dreamed of? So, I decided to use that inspiration to draw up this exclusive desktop/mobile wallpaper to share with you guys.
The land of Tomorrow continues to dazzle during the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration 24-hour party kickoff! Guests are currently dancing the late night away and straight on ‘til morning to iconic dance tunes at the TLT Dance CLUB at Disneyland park.
Our 24-kickoff to The Coolest Summer Ever has officially concluded here at the Walt Disney World Resort. A screening of “Tomorrowland” with 500 of our readers? A few trips on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train? Two performances of “Main Street Electrical Parade”? Dole Whip at 3 a.m.? I can’t imagine a better way to kick off what will for sure be the Coolest Summer Ever at Disney Parks.
