This week, we shared an exciting update that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, one of Walt Disney’s earliest cartoon stars, is heading to Disney California Adventure Park in September.


Beginning September 14, you’ll be able to meet Oswald on Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure park. Just look for the lucky little rabbit strolling along the sunny side of the street. Shawn has some more details about Oswald in his original story.


And we also celebrated the season’s first of 26 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties to kick off the week. This year’s event offers a new character dance party at the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon in Frontierland and many more experiences you can read about in Jennifer’s original story.

This year’s party dates are: September 1, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 21, 23, 26 & 28 and October 2, 3, 5, 9, 10, 13, 16, 17, 19, 21, 23, 24, 26, 27, 30 & 31. Advance purchase (prior to event day) savings are available for select dates.

  • I love this blog. It used to come into my inbox as an email but no longer why ? I called and was told there’s’ no way to do this. Anyone have an idea>

  • We were at Disney World last weekend, and experienced a nice taste of Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party! We also enjoyed the new Fantasyland, including the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Belle’s Library, as well as many other attractions. The biggest disappointment was not seeing an Olaf character. The Frozen theme is great at Hollywood Studios, but the icing on the cake would have been for my son to actually meet Olaf. Please make an Olaf character so boys have something more to enjoy from the Frozen movie! Thank you. 🙂
