Our Rock Your Disney Side 24-Hour event has officially begun in Florida with a special opening moment that included a surprise visits from some of your favorite hero and villain characters.


Guests joined the blog team outside of Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4:45 a.m. this morning to be among the first to enter and kick off the Memorial Day Weekend – the traditional start of the family travel season.

We’ve only started our 24 hours of coverage here on the Disney Parks Blog so be sure to keep checking back throughout the day and night for complete coverage of the party at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland ResortErin will be joining us with updates soon.


  • Wasn’t there at 0600, but was there by 0730. At that time the park was pretty empty and most of the rides were walk-ons. At 10:30 still most rides were walk-ons. However, by 12:00 the crowds were gathering and it was HOT, HOT, HOT and MUGGY! Watched two parades, rode a couple of rides, took lots of pictures and headed home.

    Cast members said that it was a zoo at opening and will be a zoo for the rest of today and tonight.

    Good luck to all who are there! Have fun! I’ll be thinking about you while I’m sleeping. 🙂
