A few weeks ago, we kicked off the beginning of a Monstrous Summer at Walt Disney World Resort, which means that guests visiting this season will have a lot of new Disney attractions, and entertainment and dining experiences to look forward to.

Here’s a sample of what’s new:




  • Wilderness Explorers – Fans of the Disney•Pixar film “Up” can now become Wilderness Explorers (just like Russell!) at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. With a total of 30 badges to work towards, kids can have fun learning about the park and it’s animals through hands-on Wilderness Explorers activities.
  • Limited Time Magic – Special limited-time in-park experiences will be announced each Friday here on the Disney Parks Blog throughout the summer. “Limited Time Magic” experiences that have happened so far have included the Dapper Dans singing boy band hits, rare Disney character meet-and-greets, special merchandise opportunities and more.


  • My hubby and I are surprising our kids with a “spur of the moment” trip to WDW in July! I can’t let this Monstrous Summer go by without experiencing these fun events!! We are SO excited!

  • Really enjoying monstrous summer! thanks Jennifer !
