Rockin’ Your Disney Side at the Disneyland Resort Can Be a Real Treat!

posted on May 23rd, 2014 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort



4:30 p.m. EDT / 1:30 p.m. PDT

A couple of days ago I teased you with the fact that we would be casting a spell on your taste buds with some new treats debuting today as part of the Rock Your Disney Side 24-hour event at the Disneyland Resort. Here’s your first look at our Candy Maker’s wonderfully wicked creations.

Maleficent-Treats

If your Disney Side tends to be more hero than villain, here are a few other sweet suggestions to help you make it through the night. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Jack Skellington and Olaf-inspired apples are tantalizing treats. Our character-inspired cookies, cake pops and cupcakes are full of fun.

Special tip: If you find yourself bouncing off the walls and in need of a Tigger Tail, be sure to visit Hunny Spot in Critter Country.

Some of you who are rockin’ around the park with us already may have discovered these tasty treasures, but for those of you heading to the resort a little later today, keep an eye out for these treats at Candy Palace in Disneyland park, Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure park and Marceline’s Confectionery in the Downtown Disney District!

Who’s ready to Rock Your Disney Side for 24 hours at the Disneyland Resort? We’ve already shared tips for lining up, carpooling, snacking and catching special entertainment – and today I’ve got more information to share about the big kick-off in the Disneyland Esplanade early Friday morning.

In addition to receiving a special commemorative Rock Your Disney Side lanyard (available to the first 2,000 guests in line), those joining us for the 6 a.m. opening moment on May 23 will be able to check out some special activities we have planned for the early morning hours.

Beginning at 4 a.m., our DJ will get the party started with music and special surprise appearances by some familiar Disney friends, all leading up to the explosive opening of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks at 6 a.m.

In addition, we’ll have artists creating two pieces celebrating summer:

  • A special, hand-crafted Olaf Sand Sculpture will stand eight feet high, welcoming the silly snowman’s favorite time of year. When it’s finished, it will have taken more than 40 hours to create out of 9 tons of sand.
  • To kick off our Show Your Disney Sidewalk program on Disneyland and Walt Disney World Instagram, featured artist Noah will create a piece of chalk art measuring 8’ by 8’ showing Mickey Mouse enjoying a summer day on the beach at Paradise Pier. When complete, the piece will be donated to Autism Speaks for auction.

So get your beauty rest now, and join us early in the morning on Friday to Rock Your Disney Side!
