Disney Parks Blog Celebrates 2nd Anniversary

posted on September 28th, 2011 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

Yes, exactly two years ago today we hit the “publish” button and officially launched the Disney Parks Blog. As long-time readers know, we began with just a handful of authors who had a passion to share stories and of course, to listen to what was on your mind. But oh my, how we’ve grown.

We now have authors representing departments throughout Disney and our reach is global. Here they are (click image) and every story they’ve ever written on the blog.

Disney Parks Blog Celebrates 2nd Anniversary

To begin another year, we’ve shared a really cool video of Walt Disney talking about what will be Magic Kingdom Park in honor of our 40th anniversary at Walt Disney World Resort. The anniversary is Saturday and we hope you’ll be following along on our channels, including on our new Disney Parks Blog Facebook page.

Disney Parks Blog Facebook Page

The page is now live. It’s your place to learn more about the authors pictured above, find behind-the-scenes peeks at your favorite blog content, see exclusive park photos and of course, to connect with blog team members. We’ll be there every day and we hope you will be too.

Finally, I’d like to say thank you for another amazing year on the Disney Parks Blog. You are the reason why we’re here and we can’t wait to begin year three with you. And as always, we’re busy working on a few surprises in the upcoming months you’ll want to see.

Happy Anniversary! Everyone associated with this blog deserves a big pat on the back for a terrific job! I cannot believe the variety of items that have been on here these past couple of years, and I think my favorites are the tilt-shift videos and the Every Role a Starring Role Cast Member videos! Thank you!

Happy 2nd anniversary to the Disney Parks blog! What I like most about the blog is the articles featuring new projects or construction pictures. I also like the articles that feature Disney’s history, like the weekly “Vintage Walt Disney World” pictures. It’s a great way to communicate with us fans.

Also, Happy 40th Anniversary to Walt Disney World! I can’t wait to go there in December!

#12 – Yes, congratulations to all involved with the blog these past 2 years! It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long.

Will there ever be another blog meet-up at Disneyland any time soon? We had a good time at the ones we were able to get tickets to and would like to go to another one, if they have them again.

The Disney Parks Blog is THE prime source for all news Disney! (Hey Mickey– what about a different blog (or this blog expanded) for other disney news like news on its animation, movies groups, etc.?) Keep up the awesome work!!
