This week, we invited some of your favorite Internet personalities to “Show Your Disney Side” at the Social Media All-Stars #DisneySide World Premiere at Disneyland park. Social media all-stars included YouTube sensations Mike Tompkins, Tiffany Alvord as well as Instagram photographers, Pinterest experts and familiar faces like Ridiculously Photogenic Guy and the world’s grumpiest cat – Grumpy Cat.

Be sure and check Erin’s original story to see more amazing “Show Your Disney Side” videos and photos.


And we also shared new “Glow With the Show” video from the Walt Disney World Resort. The ear hats recently began enhancing nightly performances of “Celebrate the Magic” and “Wishes” fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park.

Ear hats will also be used during “Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season” fireworks beginning this Friday, November 8, for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties.
