#DisneyKids: It’s a Pirate’s Life for Me

posted on June 26th, 2015 by Jamie Langdon, Social Media Manager

Yo ho, let’s go! The sense of adventure of a pirate’s life can entertain little ones of all ages and we’ve got lots of exciting ways for kids to get in on the action. We rounded up some of the top ways at Walt Disney World Resort for kids to feel like a real pirate for the day in this handy graphic.


In addition to these great experiences, there is even more swashbuckling fun to be had across the theme parks and resorts. For fans of Disney Jr., don’t miss character dining and meet & greet opportunities with Jake and the Neverland Pirates at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! The adventure continues at our resorts with special Pirates Adventure Cruises, where little scallywags can set sail to find hidden treasure. There are even pirate-themed rooms at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.

A Room With a View on An Adventures by Disney Vacation to Central Europe

posted on June 26th, 2015 by Amanda Adler, Public Relations Manager

I just returned from an amazing Austria, Germany and Czech Republic Adventures by Disney vacation. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite experiences from that trip here on the Disney Parks Blog shortly but, in the meantime, I wanted to show off my favorite room with a view from this adventure.


Imagine waking up to the sight of the Bavarian Alps outside your window. Well I did just that during my Adventures by Disney stay in Berchtesgarden, Germany! And as you can see, the three nights I spent here as part of this 8-night trip were truly breathtaking.

The Austria, Germany and Czech Republic trip is also one of the uniquely designed multi-generational trips Adventures by Disney is offering for 2015. The Aug. 21-29 departure of this trip will include a professional photographer on hand to capture photos of your extended family together.

Of course, every Adventures by Disney trip offers some pretty remarkable views. Be sure to follow the new Adventures by Disney Pinterest page for even more great shots like this one!

#CoolestSummer Ever: Magic Kingdom Park Cool

posted on June 26th, 2015 by Greg Ehrbar, Writer/Author, Disney's Yellow Shoes Creative Group

Magic Kingdom Park is a wonderland of pleasant places and experiences waiting to be discovered, and then made into regular visit traditions. When the summer sun is beaming it brightest, every seasoned guest has favorite attractions that are refreshingly air-conditioned and/or cooled nicely with fans and are relatively moderate as to queues (of course, “subject to change without notice” and all that stuff).
