Just seconds ago, a 180-foot-tall Mike Wazowski from the upcoming Disney●Pixar film “Monsters University”made the official announcement that we’re keeping three theme parks open for 24 hours on Memorial Day Weekend, the traditional start of the family travel season, to kick off a Monstrous Summer on both coasts. Wazowski, the loveable green-bodied, one-eyed monster, joins best pal James P. Sullivan (“Sulley”) in the prequel to “Monsters, Inc.”, this summer as college students with hopes of becoming Scarers.
Our first-ever, three-park all-night party is happening at the Magic Kingdom Park in Florida and Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park in California. The parks will stay open from 6 a.m., May 24 to 6 a.m., May 25, 2013, local time.
- In Florida, Magic Kingdom Park will feature a “Monsters University” theme where Mike and Sulley will be the Grand Marshals of the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” day parade and make appearances in Tomorrowland. There will be extra entertainment throughout the day and night, including characters in their pajamas in Town Square during the late night and early morning, and late-night dance parties in and around the courtyard of Cinderella Castle.
- In California, you’ll be able to party the night away at both parks with special entertainment including: a “Monsters University” “TLT Monstrous” Dance Club and Star Wars characters in Tomorrowland and late-night Character Pajama Party in Mickey’s ToonTown at Disneyland park. The new Fantasy Faire Royal Theatre at Disneyland park will become a Royal Dance Hall late at night with a live band and dancing; and guests of Disney California Adventure park will find Monstrous photo opportunities with new “Monsters University” “Dorms” in Hollywood Land and a new “Monsters University” float leading the Pixar Play Parade.

Happy December everyone! Are you excited? Stressed? I hope your not stressed but enjoying the beginning of the month!
I love christmas, in fact I put my tree up literally right after Thanksgiving. Last year I made a video with my christmas tree and again I made one this year inspired by Cinderella’s Castle Lights. If you wanna see last years click HERE. This years is right below! I hope you enjoy!
HEY everyone!! As you know there is a new show coming to the Magic Kingdom, Celebrate The Magic is the name of this show! Below is an article I found talking all about this new show that will take place on Cinderella’s Castle! Take a look…
Back in August, we told you about “Celebrate the Magic,” a new nighttime projection show coming to Magic Kingdom Park. Well, our Creative Entertainment team has been working around the clock to get everything ready, and now it’s almost show time!
“Celebrate the Magic” pays tribute to the artistry and imagination of Disney stories, from beloved classics to contemporary favorites.
As the show begins, Tinker Bell appears to fly around Cinderella Castle, weaving in and out of the turrets. She splashes pixie dust on the castle, transforming it into a spectacular piece of living art. As the pixie dust subsides, we are taken back to the beginnings of pencil animation, and we see Walt Disney, the original magic maker, drawing Mickey Mouse. With a little magic from Tinker Bell, Walt’s paintbrush flies off the page and comes to life, creating imagery that carries us away on a fantastic journey.
We travel down the rabbit hole with Alice, soar high above the Big Top with Dumbo and visit the African savanna with Simba. Our adventure takes us into the worlds of “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Brave,” and at one point, Cinderella Castle is even reimagined as the 8-bit video game home of the Nicelanders in Disney’s newest smash, “Wreck-It Ralph.” The whole show comes full circle for a magical finale filled with wonder and emotion.
“’Celebrate the Magic’ draws its inspiration from the love we all share for Disney’s memorable characters, their stories and the imagination that brought them to life,” says Show Director Katy Harris. “The team has been able to combine advances in technology with spectacular imagery and a stirring musical score to create a stunning and immersive way of storytelling. ‘Celebrate the Magic’ takes us on a journey full of wonderful moments our guests will never forget.”
As a special treat, “Celebrate the Magic” debuts with a segment of the show created just for the holiday season, featuring the return of the gingerbread castle seen during our original projection show, “The Magic, The Memories and You!”
Fans of the seasonal updates to that show will also be pleased to learn the tradition will continue with “Celebrate the Magic.” Look for the arrival of favorite Disney couples in January, a trip to the beach with “Lilo & Stitch” and“The Little Mermaid” during the summer months, and an influx of Disney villains in time for next Halloween.
“Celebrate the Magic” will be presented most evenings at Magic Kingdom Park, beginning this week! Please check DisneyWorld.com or the in-park Times Guide for specific dates and times.

Everyone knows that when it comes to castle shows that Disney is by far the best at this. From their skill and artist visions that paint “Wishes” in the night sky to the new and highly technological castle projection show, “The Magic, The Memories and You.” Even the heart moving “Dream Along with Mickey” show has the Disney touch throughout with its precision timed fireworks and brilliant dancers.
However there is a castle show that most seem to miss since it is not done until the Magic Kingdom closes. This show is called “Kiss Goodnight”. The show is done to the tune of When You Wish Upon a Star in the background and turns the castle into a beautiful sparkling multi colored wonder that one must see for themselves. Towards the end as you hear Mickey wish you a goodnight and a safe journey home, the last verse of When You Wish Upon a Star starts to sing to make this a magical evening by far.
Welcome to those of you joining me from Return to Disney and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.
Hello everyone and welcome back to Magik Mouse for another Blogorail post. Todays topic is What makes Disney feel like home? Wow this is kind of a hard question for me to answer. Ive been a Cast Member for quite a long time that Disney has literally been my home. However if I was to think back to when I would come to the parks as a guest I would have to say that the happiness makes me feel the most at home.
Happiness? I know its kind of a dumb answer but when ever I think about Disney I instantly think of happiness. When I see all the smiling families taking pictures along Main Street and running to get FastPasses gives me that homely feeling. I can honestly say that when I see these people my heart beats faster and my face begins to s light up! I love this feeling that I get and this is what makes Disney feel like home to me!
Thanks so much for reading and have a Magical Day!
