We’ve officially reached our midpoint of the Coolest Summer Ever 24-hour kickoff event. So far we’ve seen a ton of guests showing off their #DisneySide in some pretty amazing costumes, tagged along while Nate snacked his way through the park (he’s finally finished, by the way), and Steven is continuing his mountain challenge at the park. We also hosted a Disney Parks Blog reader event and spotted some Disney Channel stars enjoying the 24-hour event themselves.

Check out the photo gallery above for a look some of the best costumes we’ve seen so far during the event. (Thanks to David Roark for the awesome shots!)

Be sure to keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog tonight. Our live streams are still going strong and we can’t wait to share tonight’s entertainment with you – live!

Lots of guests visit one of our amazing restaurants at dinnertime when visiting a Disney Park, but there are lots of quick options to enjoy too. I decided to head over to Gaston’s Tavern for dinner.

If there is one thing I like even more than a good turkey leg, it’s the pork shank. It’s seriously delicious. And I wasn’t leaving there without the help of a Lafou’s Brew to wash it down. (I told you I was all-in today!)

You might think I was done eating for the day, but you’d be wrong. The pièce de résistance for my Coolest Summer Ever food marathon is diving into the Kitchen Sink sundae from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.

I wasn’t playing when I said ice cream was my favorite food. There is always room for ice cream. Always.

Thanks for reading along all day as I toured my taste buds around Magic Kingdom Park. I hope you enjoyed it as much as my stomach did.
