Disney Parks After Dark: A Peaceful Night at Tom Sawyer Island

posted on July 24th, 2014 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


In my opinion, tonight’s “After Dark” image is one of the best we’ve ever shared. It’s a snap of Tom Sawyer Island right at sunset. It’s so calm and serene that it just makes me want to visit again very soon.

Soccer is the Game, Developing Leaders is the Game Plan – Celebrating at Disney Cup International

posted on July 23rd, 2014 by Robert Hitchcock, PR Manager/Content Producer, runDisney

I want them to remember the experience, I want them to remember the feeling.” With that belief at the center of his coaching, Steven Horwood of the Ajax Football Club from Ontario, Canada, has led his team to victory both on and off the pitch. The majority of his team has played together since they were 8-years-old, and now playing in their final season together, Horwood thought the Disney Cup International, Presented by AS Roma was the right thing to do for all they have accomplished.
