Disney Parks Blog
Welcome, I’m chief blogger and social media director Thomas Smith.

Beginning today, we’re offering the latest, official information about our destinations as well as some exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at what makes Disney Parks the most magical place on earth. Expect to hear from Imagineers, horticulturists, chefs and other interesting Cast Members.

Walt Disney listened as he wandered the parks. We’ll listen here.

  • Hi Thomas, will the blog be mainly at the America Parks or the Disney Parks overall (including Disneyland Paris)?

    Us over here in Europe get very little information from the Imagineers behind our new attractions, it would be interesting to hear more details.

  • I love this. Disney Park & Resorts is my favorite branch of the Disney empire! Will the Imagineers-and NOT the Accountateers-being reading this? Hope so! Us Mouseketeers have a lot of opinions on how things are being handled in the parks!

  • Congratulations! I cannot wait to be filled in πŸ™‚

  • Awesome! Bravo, Disney!

    I hope this can be an official beginning to a direct relationship with your many devoted fans.


  • I love this idea. I hope it gets lots of attention, and lots of updates on the new Fantasyland Expansion. Many questions are out there on the internet, maybe a Q & A for people to ask questions about the Fantasyland Expansion?

    I’m hoping WDW will get equal attention as DLR in the blog. Always seems like DLR gets more attention.


  • Yay! Good luck on your launch!

  • I’ve been more and more impressed with the PR for Disney/Disney parks. From Twitter to Facebook to viral youtube videos, and now this blog. I am glad someone understands that the little extra touches like social media get consumers interested in the product. I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to visit WDW after reading a great article from Miceage or by listening to a WDW Radio podcast. I am sure this will be difficult to start, but I truely appreciate the effort that you guys put in. Thanks so much from the WDW online fan community.

  • Congrats on starting this blog. This is an excellent opportunity for some two-way communication with Disney enthusiasts.

    I look forward to more posts!
