This week, we shared a special inside look at Anna and Elsa’s Royal Sommerhus at Epcot.

The Royal Sommerhus at Epcot is a house full of memories (and memorabilia) from the sisters travels with their parents when they were younger. Now that Elsa is queen, the house has reopened so the sisters can relive their fond memories and make new ones with guests.

We also launched a new episode of “Inside Disney Parks” newscast. This time we’re featuring our newest Disney Parks experiences – from the grand debut of Shanghai Disney Resort in China to the openings of Frozen Ever After and Soarin’ Around The World at Epcot.

The next “Inside Disney Parks” LIVE event is tomorrow, July 11, showcasing the new stage show, “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire,” at Magic Kingdom Park. The live stream will begin at 4:10 p.m. ET. Join us minutes before the show starts to learn more about how new shows and entertainment are created for Walt Disney World Resort.
