I spotted a few more items that caught my eye including an Oswald the Lucky Rabbit T-shirt that was released at Disney Parks this spring.
New items are added nearly every week, and you can see them in the “Disney Parks Product – New Arrivals” section of the store. The online store team also told me that it’s a good idea to visit regularly as the assortment varies often.
Finally, they are holding a special online store promotion from June 13-16, 2013. Guests can enjoy free shipping on Disney Parks items found at http://www.DisneyParks.com/Store. At checkout, make sure you use the promo code “PARKFREE.”
It’s National Adopt-A-Cat Month, and I’ve found the perfect trio you’ll want to welcome into your home. Sure, they might make a racket, and you’d need to go back in time to adopt them, but other than that, they’d be a great addition. Here’s a look at Scat Cat’s jazz band from “The Aristocats” performing at the Plaza Pavilion at Magic Kingdom Park in the 1970s.
Sporting colors that represent a “far-out” moment from the film, Scat Cat (left) along with English Cat (on the drums) and the Italian Cat (right), performed for guests showcasing why “Ev’rybody Wants to Be a Cat.”

While at Disney’s world-class sports facility, Kaká gave a quick soccer lesson to Mickey and a couple of his youth soccer friends, demonstrating proper techniques for a penalty kick and corner kick.
In its 14th year at ESPN Wide World of Sports, the upcoming Disney Cup International presented by AS Roma, will be held July 15-20 and has attracted more than 200 teams from 19 countries.
Off the field, Kaká boasts a monstrous social media presence. He was the first athlete to surpass 10 million followers on Twitter – now at more than 15 million – along with millions more fans on Facebook and Instagram.
With Father’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to spotlight a father-son duo who make magic not only at Disney Parks but right here on the Disney Parks Blog. You already know Kevin Rafferty, Jr., from his wonderful Disney Parks Blog stories, and readers have met his father, Kevin Rafferty, in many of our posts as well as at our Cars Land Meet-Up last year.
The one parade I remember from my childhood visits to Walt Disney World was the Main Street Electrical Parade. Upon hearing the opening bars of “Baroque Hoedown,” I’m immediately transported to warm summer nights enjoying the dazzling lights.
The first day of summer is just days away, so finding ways to look cool and stay cool is top of mind for fashionistas everywhere. Whether you’re planning to set sail on Disney Cruise Line, get soaked on Grizzly River Run at Disney California Adventure park, or dive into Disney’s Blizzard Beach or Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon at Walt Disney World Resort, you’ll be ready for sun and surf in this week’s outfit.
If your idea of a perfect night is a lamb burger at the Uva Bar followed by shopping at Disney Vault 28, then I’ve got a tip you don’t want to miss. You can now keep up with what’s going on at the Downtown Disney District in the Disneyland Resort on Twitter!
They’re some of the hottest tickets in town, so get ready to dial at 7 a.m. on Aug. 13 when the phone lines open to book reservations for premium events for the 18th annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Sept. 27-Nov. 11.
With Father’s Day approaching, our vote at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for father of the year is Kenny, one of our siamangs (a species of ape). Kenny has been raising his twin daughters, Veruca and Violet, since they were a couple of months old and doing a fantastic job under the watchful eyes of our animal care team.
