Walt Disney Parks and Resorts have always been a place where kids and adults create family experiences together – it’s how Walt Disney himself envisioned the park and it’s an integral part of our heritage. So we’re excited to support an opportunity for families to share how they like to spend time together through a contest by KaBOOM! called America’s Most Playful Family Contest
Research shows there are many benefits to children spending time with their families and other positive adult role models, which is why we hosted the Discover Together symposium to provide resources to nonprofit organizations that work with children and families.
It’s also why we’re supporting the America’s Most Playful Family Contest’s invitation to kids, parents, grandparents, and families of all kinds to submit photos and stories that showcase how they spend time together. The contest is a great way to get people talking about family time and exchange ideas for fun activities for people of all ages. The grand prize winner will get to extend that family fun with a trip for four to one of the most playful places on earth – Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort!
Entries will be accepted through March 16, so get yours in today!

The “Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade” has arrived at Magic Kingdom Park!
The parade, which serves as a tribute to New Fantasyland, officially debuted as the park’s new daily afternoon parade on Sunday.
The procession features nearly 100 performers and Disney characters, with floats specifically telling the stories of “Tangled,” “Peter Pan,” “Brave,” “Sleeping Beauty” and many more. Highlights you won’t want to miss include seeing Maleficent appear as a fire-breathing dragon, and an appearance by Anna, Elsa and Olaf (from “Frozen”) on the Princess Garden float. For more highlights and to hear what some of the first spectators think, be sure to check out the video below.

“Space shuttle, this is flight safety…” I can still recall my first ride on Space Mountain during my first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in July 1983. The attraction was my first Disney coaster and, despite some tears after that first ride, it quickly became a favorite thing at Magic Kingdom Park.
On October 1, 1991, Magic Kingdom park welcomed a brand-new nighttime parade: “SpectroMagic”
