Mark Presidents Day With This Disney Parks Blog Wallpaper

posted on February 16th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


Today is Presidents’ Day, and to mark the occasion we’ll be paying tribute to our own presidential-inspired attraction, Hall of Presidents, here on the Disney Parks Blog.

If you read any Walt Disney biography, you’ll get a sense of Walt’s patriotism and how that eventually inspired him to create attractions like Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln and Hall of Presidents. Other attractions that carry a patriotic theme, like American Adventure at Epcot, have continued this tradition.

In honor of today’s holiday, please enjoy our latest Disney Parks Blog wallpaper. Click on the image below to download.

PHOTO GALLERY: Special Images of Cinderella & Her Castle

posted on February 15th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


In my opinion, one of the most lovely places in all of Magic Kingdom Park is the castle breezeway inside Cinderella Castle, which is decorated with five amazing mosaics that tell the story of “Cinderella.”

In honor of today’s anniversary, Disney Photographer Ryan Wendler headed out to shoot a special gallery of images of this beautiful area – and it just so happened that he ran into a bit of Disney royalty while he was there.

The “Cinderella” design of the mosaic walls was designed by Imagineer Dorothea Redmond. Each of the five contain hundreds of thousands of pieces of glass fused together with silver and 14-carat gold. The mosaics feature more than 500 colors and if you look closely, you can see that Cinderella’s stepsisters each have a unique facial tint: the face of one stepsister is tinted red (as in “red with rage”) and the other’s visage has a green tint (as in “green with envy”) as they watch Cinderella try on the glass slipper.

It’s Friday the 13th: Happy Villaintine’s Day!

posted on February 13th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


We like to have a little fun the day before Valentine’s Day and celebrate our love of the Disney villains on our own holiday on February 13 that we like to call Villaintine’s Day! You’ll see that our logo has temporarily changed (thanks to the help of Maleficent). You’ll also see that our day’s header images now showcase the mischief of Gaston, Ursula and other baddies you can spot at Disney Parks.

Why celebrate villains? Well, without them, we’d have no Disney heros, right? Think about it. Would Simba have realized his inner strength without battling Scar? Would Ariel have met Prince Eric again without the help of Ursula’s magic? And let’s be honest, it’s just fun to see Peter Pan and Captain Hook battle back and forth. Disney villains add so much to Disney films and they’re equally fun to meet in person at our parks.

Is seeing a Disney villain a must-do for you when visiting our parks? Which one? Tell us in the comments section below!
