Magic Kingdom Park’s Tomorrowland Inspires Our Latest Desktop/Mobile Wallpaper

posted on May 23rd, 2015 by Will Gay, Creative Director, Disney's Yellow Shoes Creative Group


You may have noticed, like I did, that the Disney Parks Blog is all decked out in its Tomorrowland best this week. Seeing all those great images made me think: What if Space Mountain had a never before discovered, hidden rocket launch platform that could take you to places you’ve only dreamed of? So, I decided to use that inspiration to draw up this exclusive desktop/mobile wallpaper to share with you guys.

Hope you enjoy, and see you in Tomorrowland!

Our 24-kickoff to The Coolest Summer Ever has officially concluded here at the Walt Disney World Resort. A screening of “Tomorrowland” with 500 of our readers? A few trips on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train? Two performances of “Main Street Electrical Parade”? Dole Whip at 3 a.m.? I can’t imagine a better way to kick off what will for sure be the Coolest Summer Ever at Disney Parks.

The party’s going strong at Magic Kingdom Park. Check out these shots of some of the fun being had at Disney’s “Up All Night” Dance Party at Cinderella Castle. Yep, that’s Donald, Daisy and Goofy in their PJs and dancing the night away! And over in Frontierland, Minnie Mouse and Chip ‘n’ Dale have skipped bedtime to kick up their heels in a late-night hoedown.

We’re taking a late-night (or early-morning) snack break, and several locations are still open! The Plaza Restaurant is open till 3 a.m., offering their all-day menu. If you’re craving a sweet snack, Sleepy Hollow is still serving up the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich. If you’re in the mood for breakfast bites, try a Cinnamon Roll from Gaston’s Tavern or the Breakfast Platter at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café piled high with sizzling bacon, scrambled eggs and herb-crusted roasted red skin potatoes. Main Street Bakery, Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, Casey’s Corner and The Lunching Pad are all still open if you’re looking for a snack!

Magic Kingdom Park Mountain Challenge Completed

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


wdw500pm

Earlier this morning, I shared my plans to conquer the mountains of Magic Kingdom Park for the 24-hour party. I’m happy to report that my challenge has been completed. Here’s a quick look back at my journey.

SMC7895711

My morning started with an out-of-this-world journey on Space Mountain in Tomorrowland. I love the entrance and exit queue at this attraction. When I was younger, I would stand for hours listening to the music. One day, I want to recreate the lighting and decor in my home.

SMC7895712

My next stop was Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in New Fantasyland. The Dwarfs cottage in the queue may be my favorite thing as it looks like it leaped off the movie screen. I also enjoy the launch down the first hill, and the climb with the shadows of the Dwarfs projected on the wall is awesome!

SMC7895713

My afternoon saw a stop at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland. A special thanks to attractions cast member Miguel for jumping in my photo at the entrance. The image made me laugh after I saw it. Once again, the queue for this ride is fantastic. There are so many hidden details including my favorite, a nod to Rosita from the Tropical Serenade in Adventureland.

I finished my mountain challenge with a drop down Chikapin Hill at Splash Mountain in Frontierland. I managed to get a face full of water while riding in the last row. I consider it the perfect start to the “Coolest Summer Ever” at Walt Disney World Resort.

The Coolest Summer Ever live stream has concluded.

We’ve officially reached our midpoint of the Coolest Summer Ever 24-hour kickoff event. So far we’ve seen a ton of guests showing off their #DisneySide in some pretty amazing costumes, tagged along while Nate snacked his way through the park (he’s finally finished, by the way), and Steven is continuing his mountain challenge at the park. We also hosted a Disney Parks Blog reader event that included breakfast at Cosmic Ray’s and a screening of “Tomorrowland.”

Check out the video and photo gallery above for a look some of the best costumes we’ve seen so far during the event. (Thanks to David Roark and Matt Stroshane for the awesome shots!)

Cheers to Me! It’s Dinnertime at Magic Kingdom Park

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


wdw600p

Lots of guests visit one of our amazing restaurants at dinnertime when visiting a Disney Park, but there are lots of quick options to enjoy too. I decided to head over to Gaston’s Tavern for dinner.

If there is one thing I like even more than a good turkey leg, it’s the pork shank. It’s seriously delicious. And I wasn’t leaving there without the help of a Lafou’s Brew to wash it down. (I told you I was all-in today!)

DSC_0841

You might think I was done eating for the day, but you’d be wrong. The pièce de résistance for my Coolest Summer Ever food marathon is diving into the Kitchen Sink sundae from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.

I wasn’t playing when I said ice cream was my favorite food. There is always room for ice cream. Always.

Thanks for reading along all day as I toured my taste buds around Magic Kingdom Park. I hope you enjoyed it as much as my stomach did.

The Coolest Summer Ever live stream has concluded.

We’re almost halfway through our “Coolest Summer Ever” kickoff event at Magic Kingdom Park, and there’s still a ton of cool stuff yet to come!

CMF117652SMALL

Just before each of tonight’s performances of the Main Street Electrical Parade (scheduled for 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.), your “Frozen” friends will be making special appearances along the parade route. Look for Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf gliding by on a beautiful, ice crystal castle float. And if seeing them makes you want to belt out a chorus of “Let It Go” or “Love Is an Open Door,” you’re in luck! We’re holding sing-along screenings of “Frozen” at the Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland from midnight to 4 a.m.

NWI505862

Don’t forget about “Wishes” fireworks at 9 p.m. or “Celebrate the Magic,” transforming Cinderella Castle at 8:45 p.m. and 10:45 p.m., and starting at 2 a.m. you can dance the night away with your Disney pals at dance parties in Frontierland and the Central Plaza. It’s going to be a great night!
