If you enjoy toe-tapping tunes as much as tasty treats, you will love this: starting today, you can make FastPass+ reservations for the Eat to the Beat concert series. These nightly shows during the 20th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival span the decades of pop music.
Normal FastPass+ booking guidelines apply. Log onto My Disney Experience to secure a spot for your favorite performers up to 60 days in advance (plus your length of stay) for resort guests, and up to 30 days in advance for Annual Passholders.
Catch season seven American Idol winner David Cook, who just released a new album. Swoon to Air Supply, which is celebrating 40 years as a duo. And can you believe, Wilson Phillips hit their first #1 single “Hold On” 25 years ago?
The shows are at 5:30, 6:45, and 8 p.m. each night of the Festival. Look for the FastPass+ line at the American Garden Theatre at least 20 minutes before each show, and from there you’ll be led to your special seating area.
Here’s a complete lineup of bands. Which performer are you most excited to see?
Staying at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort has many perks. One of my favorite amenities at our hotels are the themed pools! And of course, no hotel pool is complete without water slides!
With the help of our amazing video crew, a few GoPro cameras and three fantastic lifeguards – Brett, Jenn and Monique – we wanted to share just how fun our slides are at each of our resort hotels.
First up, the Monorail Pool at the Disneyland Hotel! Choose between two Monorail-themed slides: the 180-foot-long Monorail Red slide and 80-foot-long Monorail Yellow slide. Little known fact: both are replicas of the original Mark 1 Monorail trains which traveled between Disneyland and the Disneyland Hotel during the early ‘60s. If you can’t decide which slide to ride first, check out the video below!
Greetings from beautiful Castaway Cay, where Disney Vacation Club Members have taken over the island! (Not by force, mind you. They were invited.)
Only months removed from our recent charter voyage to Alaska, Disney Vacation Club has traded white glaciers for white sands, going from the Klondike to the Caribbean and returning to the friendly confines of Disney’s private paradise for a rare second Member Cruise of the year. This typically once-a-year event has long been a highlight on many Members’ calendars, enhancing the already extraordinary Disney Cruise Line experience with custom décor, in-room gifts, and a diverse lineup of special shows and experiences created just for Members and their guests.
Our special-entertainment lineup of more than a dozen unique experiences is the first in Member Cruise history to feature presentations from each of the three creative forces most requested by our Member community: Walt Disney Imagineering, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios.
Continuing a Member Cruise tradition, we kicked off our voyage with the dramatic reveal of our lineup through a mock movie trailer that debuted on the Disney Dream ship’s giant Funnel Vision screen as we sailed out of Port Canaveral.
I’ll leave you to enjoy the trailer while I get to the next important item on my agenda. As a movie-trailer narrator would say, “In a world where ‘work’ is a relative term, one magazine editor boldly searches for an open hammock!”
There’s been an “awakening” in the force, have you felt it?
New Star Wars™ themed merchandise and more will land in our galaxy at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts on September 4, 2015 at 12:01 AM (Midnight). Set your hyperspace coordinates and come to this merchandise ticketed event to gather supplies and other acquisitions in preparation of the highly anticipated film release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December.
In this week’s video series “Sonia’s Best of Walt Disney World,” Sonia gives us an inside look on all of the benefits that our familias get when they stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.
Living in Florida we learn to enjoy the “dog days of summer” – the hottest days of this sunny season. Why not celebrate with a fun wallpaper?
Big news for the Kilimanjaro Safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – our newest giraffe calves have ventured out onto the savanna for the first time. Mara, Milo and Lincoln are 3-, 4- and 5-months old, respectively, and are doing very well in their new home.
Whether you have one pair or a hundred, shoes are some of our most important accessories. Every good stroll requires a good pair, and more and more, shoes have become a reflection of our own personal, unique styles. Walk the West Side at Downtown Disney and you can find a one-of-a-kind, custom-painted-just-for-you pair of TOMS at Curl by Sammy Duvall. A team of talented artists creates inspired art, using the shoes as their canvas. And the best part? When you purchase any pair of TOMS shoes, the company will donate a second pair to someone in need.
We’re counting down the days and deciding the best ways to take advantage of all the food, wine, celebrity chefs, live music and more at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
