There are so many great things for July, but before I go, I just want to remind you of a couple of things.
June 29: The launch date for the next collection from Beautifully Disney, titled Unlock the Spell, is official! Fellow author Erin Catalano will be sharing all of the details about this special release, including a special mini-makeover experience taking place from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Disney Vault 28 in the Downtown Disney District. Learn more here.
June 30: A little birdie told me the new name for the exhibit opening in The Disney Gallery on Main Street, U.S.A., is “Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Realms, Celebrating 50 Years of Enchantment.” So make sure you fly by to see the newest pieces on display from Walt Disney Imagineering, as well as a selection of original and limited-edition artwork from Disney-inspired artists. You may recall that the Disneyana Shop closed its doors a couple of months ago; however, it has made its way down the street and will be taking up residence in the Bank of Main Street Building on July 1.
Summer is flying by, so be sure to stop by for some fun in the sun and enjoy all that is being offered at the Disneyland Resort!
