Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Park

140-Disney-Character ‘Ultimate Tweet’ Announces All-Night Disney Side Party On Both Coasts

posted on February 28th, 2014 by Thomas Smith, Social Media Director, Disney Parks


On Friday, we shared a tweet that truly featured 140 characters to officially announce the latest Disney Parks bicoastal, All-Night Extravaganza on Memorial Day Weekend – the traditional start of the family travel season. Our “Rock Your Disney Side Party” will be a fun-filled 24-hour event at both Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
140 Characters Formed a Hashtag at Magic Kingdom Park and Invite You and Your Family to 'Rock Your Disney Side' During a 24-hour Party to Kick Off Summer

For the Ultimate Tweet, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Pluto and 135 of their friends gathered at Magic Kingdom Park and formed the familiar shape of a hashtag. The 140 characters then invited you and your family to “Rock Your Disney Side” during a 24-hour party to kick off summer.

At this year’s All-Night Extravaganza, everyone is being invited to show their “Disney Side” by dressing as a favorite Disney hero or villain. The Magic Kingdom Park in Florida and Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park in California will be filled with Disney heroes and villains from 6 a.m., May 23 to 6 a.m., May 24, 2014, local time.

The celebration on both coasts will feature a cavalcade of events showcasing the good-vs.-evil of classic Disney stories including character meet-and-greets throughout the parks, special entertainment, event merchandise and special food and beverage offerings.

Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog and rockyourdisneyside.com for more details and information as we get closer to the All-Night Extravaganza on May 23. And let us know who you’ll be dressing up as – hero or villain?

Evan from FL on February 28th, 2014 at 10:40 am

Great, now just like the run Disney events, I’m starting to think if I could get a coast to coast medal for going to both parks in a 24 hour period.

Jon on February 28th, 2014 at 10:51 am

Why is it that something is always blocking Mike’s face? But the event sounds really cool.

I want to meet them all! Or at least the ones I haven’t met yet.

Patricia from NJ on February 28th, 2014 at 12:11 pm

Was Jack Sparrow busy? He might be the only more readily accessible character missing from this picture ;)

11

Ryan on February 28th, 2014 at 1:01 pm

Would WDW post a list of all characters that posed in this photo? Also, I’d be great during this event (and proceeding week) to meet not only all these characters but the dozens more that are not featured! Challenge accepted?

 

Thomas Smith on February 28th, 2014 at 3:33 pm

Sure, Ryan. Here’s the list: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/ultimate-tweet-disney-side-characters/

Sooooooo, when you guys are saying “show their “Disney Side” by dressing as a favorite Disney hero or villain.” does that mean adults get to come in with their costumes? Also, does the branch of Disney related characters also reach out to names that aren’t usually sold in parks? If it is, you guys just got a lot of people from a certain collaborative video game just itching to save up and come.

Jorden on February 28th, 2014 at 1:22 pm

I’m confused as to who’s standing between Gaston and Snow White. Looks like something white with a blue hat but I can’t figure that one out. Anyone know who it is?

 

Thomas Smith on February 28th, 2014 at 3:28 pm

Hi Jorden, that’s The Prince. The white you’re seeing is the trim on his hat.

14

Martine from VA on February 28th, 2014 at 1:41 pm

Poor Mike-you can see his arm though…. :)

15

Jennifer from NJ on February 28th, 2014 at 1:55 pm

Philip on February 28th, 2014 at 4:15 pm

I hope that all 140 of these characters will be appearing at the party for meet-and-greets and maybe some that aren’t pictured here.

21

Jared on February 28th, 2014 at 4:33 pm

Any chance we could get a higher resolution version of this image, maybe as a DisneyParks Blog desktop background?

Will I be able to use a single day park hopper ticket to attend this?
TIA,
Alan

Great photo from all the Disney Characters. I truly recognize them all, exept the one on the left next to Jafar.

Jacqueline on February 28th, 2014 at 7:56 pm

Poor Mike Wazowski is blocked…..

I love this concept, it really made my day!

Good luck to all, I would love to take my son back to Disneyland Resort so he could try Cars Land.

Regards,
Jackie

George on February 28th, 2014 at 8:09 pm

So the question remains, Thomas. Will all 140 characters be in the parks? (Specifically Disneyland) or will it be business as usual with the same 15-20 characters that are always out.

There are fans who love the classic characters just as much as kids love their fairies and princesses.

30

Jorge on February 28th, 2014 at 8:59 pm

Mary from MN on March 1st, 2014 at 11:42 am

If all 140 characters are out during this event, I will do my darnedest to get pics and autographs from ALL of them.

LeAnne on May 2nd, 2014 at 6:39 pm

I have the California pass that blocks out Friday and Saturday… Does that mean I cannot play with everyone else for the 24hour party?
