Seasonal Craft Beers at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on December 19th, 2014 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator


I’m a huge fan of craft beers, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out several seasonal craft brews are offered at Walt Disney World Resort.

“When the weather turns cold, it’s time to seek out some of the most popular seasonal beers, including winter ales and Indian Pale Ales (IPAs),” says Jason Cha-Kim, Beverage Manager at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “These beers are brewed stronger, richer and more full-bodied with wonderful holiday flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel.”

A few of the craft beers you can enjoy at Walt Disney World Resort include Widmer Brothers Brrr Seasonal Ale, Bell’s Winter White Ale, Harpoon Winter Warmer Spiced Ale, Sierra Nevada Celebration Fresh Hop IPA and Shock Top Shockolate Wheat.

Another brew perfect for this time of the year is the Einstok White Ale available at the beer cart in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot—the only place you’ll find this ale on tap outside of Iceland!

Keep an eye out for these limited-time brews throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

Tokyo Disneyland is hosting its “Christmas Fantasy” celebration through December 25. During this time, guests can visit Disney’s Santa Village, watch the seasonal “Disney’s Santa Village Parade” that features Disney characters and Santa’s elves getting ready for the holiday. After the sun goes down, guests can enjoy “Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights,” a sparkling nighttime parade that features Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and many more Disney characters dressed up for the holidays, and end the night with “Starbright Christmas” fireworks.

Over at Tokyo DisneySea, guests can enjoy the “Christmas Wishes” celebration, which features lush holiday decor and Christmas trees that light up Mediterranean Harbor. The harbor also sets the scene for “Colors of Christmas,” a show in which Mickey Mouse asks everyone to send their holiday wishes out to the Christmas tree floating on the water. Minnie Mouse and friends also star in the “Holiday Greeting from Seven Ports” stage show.

These Are the Gifts You’re Looking For At Disney Parks This Holiday Season

posted on December 19th, 2014 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


I know where I will be almost one year from now – sitting in a movie theater with my son as the opening credits roll for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Being a long-time fan of all things Star Wars, it will be the perfect holiday gift to myself next year. I remember receiving many Star Wars-themed gifts growing up in the late 1970s (the Death Star Space Station playset was one of my favorites!). If you are looking for Star Wars holiday gifts this season, I have a few suggestions of items created especially for Disney Parks.
