This month in our “Disney Parks After Dark” series, we’ll be switching gears and showing you some of the spookiest places at Disney Parks – at night, of course!
Tonight’s photo was shot by Tom Bricker and was snapped at Disneyland Park (Paris).
This attraction debuted April 12, 1992, in Frontierland to feature a slightly different backstory than The Haunted Mansion here at Magic Kingdom Park. The attraction in France specifically focuses on the Ravenswood family, Western settlers who struck it rich during the gold rush and were later affected by a series of mysterious demises.
Hot Dog! Hot Dog! Hot Diggity Dog!
Starting today, you can spend time with the one and only Minnie Mouse in an all-new character greeting location inspired by the popular Disney Junior show, “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.” You’ll find Minnie – along with the Mouseke-doer and Handy Helpers – near the entrance to “Disney Junior – Live on Stage!” in the Animation Courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Nearby, you can also visit other favorite Disney Junior friends such as Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First and Jake from “Jake and the Never Land Pirates.” And that’s not all! You can join in the fun with “Disney Junior – Live on Stage!” and have breakfast or lunch with some of your Disney Junior pals at Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine at Hollywood & Vine.
For young fans of Disney Junior, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is definitely the place to be!
Mouseke-ready? Mouseke-set? Let’s go!
October is here, and Halloween grows closer each day. To celebrate the season, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa bakery has created a Halloween “Tree-t” now on display in the hotel’s lobby.
This Halloween “Tree-t” is made of
- 18 pounds of marshmallows
- 52 pounds of crisped rice cereal
- 30 pounds of white chocolate
- 40 pounds of gum paste
- 15 pounds of fondant
The tree stands at over five feet tall, and took 10 cast members — including artists, engineers, and bakers — more than 140 hours to create. Thirteen “Hidden Mickeys” are hidden throughout the display.
Hot chocolate and warm apple cider (both available in an alcoholic version, for adults) are for sale, as well as spooky sweets like cake pops, pumpkin muffins and bat-shaped cookies.
The hauntingly cute confection will be on display through November 1, 2015.
This week we’re back with another Disney-inspired bento box tutorial. Check out the video below to watch Disney Parks Blog reader Mike Kravanis offer up instructions on how to create a yummy meal inspired by Anger and Joy from DisneyPixar’s “Inside Out” – in Disney Tsum Tsum style!
Around this time last year, I had the opportunity to chat with and follow Imagineers as they checked out various “Paint the Night” parade floats in progress. The warehouse was full of float frames, familiar figures and of course, lights! From the frame of Mack Truck to light testing on Slinky Dog’s tail, I felt like I had an exclusive sneak peek into the minds of this creative team. Now to see these “Paint the Night” parade floats completed and glowing down Main Street, U.S.A., it’s fun to look back and see how far they have come! Of course this stuff is too good not to share – take a look behind the scenes of “Paint the Night” parade.
This week we’re back in Cosmetology for another Halloween DIY. This time, we’re learning how to create a spooky Twilight Zone Tower of Terror bellhop look.
In true Disney fashion, we go all out to celebrate Halloween on the High Seas. Every ship gets a holiday overlay with special décor, tasty treats, themed parties and loads of spooky activities for the whole family. I love walking onto the ships for the first time each fall to see the festive details from bow to stern.
Kitchen Kabaret was one of Epcot’s opening-day attractions at The Land Pavilion, which promoted nutrition through songs and spirited characters. The show was hosted by Bonnie Appetite who had flat out adorable costumes and a kitchen that came to life with song.
These little stuffed dumpling are the ultimate comfort food – and for National Pierogi Day we’re sharing this recipe from the chefs at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. While Poland isn’t one of the World Showcase countries, it’s been a part of the festival with a marketplace since 1996, and there’s always been pierogi on the menu—one of the festival’s top sellers every single year.
If you are a fan of the new “Paint the Night” parade, which debuted as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, then keep reading because I have no doubt that you will want to add this new ear hat ornament set to your collection!
