We have breaking news from the San Diego Comic-Con where Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, announced to a packed house of fans that the Guardians of the Galaxy are coming to Disney California Adventure park!

Beginning in summer 2017, the outrageous and irreverent gang will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! – a comically high-energy, rocking new adventure. Guests will be right in the mix with characters from the blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” films.

Deep inside his fortress-like collection, the mysterious Taneleer Tivan (aka The Collector) is displaying his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy. They are trapped in customized display cases, suspended over a vast abyss. Unbeknownst to their unscrupulous captor, the intrepid Rocket has escaped and is enlisting the Collector’s VIP guests for help. Guests board a gantry lift, which launches them into a chaotic and hilarious adventure as they join Rocket in an attempt to break his fellow Guardians out of captivity.

The new attraction will anchor a broader universe of Super Heroes that will grow over time at Disney California Adventure park. This exciting new presence will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ (scheduled to close in early 2017) into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with all-new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. Guests will experience multiple random, unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift will rock to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! opens summer 2017 at Disney California Adventure park. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog as we’ll bring you more details as the attraction develops as well as opportunities to celebrate The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ before it closes in early 2017.

This summer Disney Springs is the place to be by day and by night! With a Grand Opening Summer Celebration taking place all season long, Disney Springs features an array of hard-to-pass-up deals and a variety of delectable new dining options at the newest neighborhood–Town Center, plus free nightly entertainment featuring more than 20 different acts performing across all four neighborhoods – The Marketplace, Westside, The Landing, and Town Center.

Wrapped in Florida-inspired, made-for-strolling promenades, arcing footbridges, flowing streams and waterfront charm, Disney Springs treats Walt Disney World Resort guests to an exciting blend of shopping, dining and entertainment with a Disney touch. By day or night guests can expect a vibrant scene at Disney Springs, whether they are shopping world-class brands, enjoying high-quality entertainment, having that special dining experience, pleasure boating on Village Lake or hopping a balloon skyward for spectacular views of Walt Disney World and beyond.

Now and every day, guests can enjoy the benefits of a dramatically transformed exciting new waterfront district for world-class shopping, unique dining, and high-quality entertainment featuring more than 150 establishments across its four neighborhoods.

Discover Disney Springs like never before! Here are just a few of the highlights:

Town Center – Spectacular Shopping and Award-winning chefs

  • Some of the most unique and recognizable names in retail such as UNIQLO, Vince Camuto, Anthropologie, Zara, Lilly Pulitzer, Columbia Sportswear, LACOSTE, Under Armour, kate spade new york, Sephora and Oakley all call Town Center home.
  • Among new dining choices awaiting Town Center guests are restaurants developed by James Beard award-winning chefs. Frontera Cocina serves up gourmet Mexican cuisine and creative cocktails from the menu envisioned by celebrity chef Rick Bayless, a six-time James Beard Foundation winner. Chef Art Smith, two-time winner of the James Beard Award brings a unique taste of gourmet southern cuisine and Florida agriculture to the heart of Disney Springs with Homecoming Florida Kitchen and Southern Shine.

The Landing – Inspired dining, breathtaking waterfront views, and unique boutiques

  • High-quality retailers including Erwin Pearl for fashion jewelry and Havaianas for sandals are found along lantern-lined byways.
  • Dine off a shipshape menu at The BOATHOUSE or enjoy, at Morimoto Asia, Pan-Asian cuisine from celebrity chef Matsaharu Morimoto, of Iron Chef fame. STK Orlando offers guests a fine dining experience set in chic, contemporary surroundings. Finish off the evening with a relaxing stroll to grab a signature gelato at Vivoli Gelateria or a crafted cocktail at Jock Lindsay’s Hangar Bar.

The Marketplace — Family-friendly delights for guests of all ages

  • Beautiful waterside shopping that combines new experiences such as an over-the-water pedestrian causeway, along with classic Disney favorites, including an expanded new Bibbity Bobbity Boutique inside the newly re-designed World of Disney store.
  • Nearby, the new Lime garage makes getting to the Marketplace a breeze

The West Side – Exuberant entertainment retail and dining options

From new acts at Cirque du Soleil to iconic restaurants to colorful food trucks to bowling with a stylized twist at Splitsville, West Side offers something for everyone. There is even the opportunity to lift off in a tethered balloon. Characters in Flight rises from the banks of Village Lake for eye-popping, 360-degree views (on a clear day you can see Florida’s east coast).

Two new slot-smart parking decks where green lights indicate available spaces make parking convenient to the entire Disney Springs scene – and it’s free. Valet parking also is available. Disney Springs is easily accessed from I-4, Central Florida’s major interstate, and connected to the rest of Walt Disney World Resort by motor coach and watercraft.

The magic of Disney combines with the modern expression of emojis in Disney Emoji Blitz, a game for mobile devices where players can collect and play with hundreds of Disney and Pixar emojis. Disney Emoji Blitz is the first mobile game connected to a custom keyboard and features more than 400 emojis of Disney and Pixar characters, including favorites from “The Little Mermaid,” “The Lion King,” “Cinderella,” “Frozen,” “Finding Dory,” “The Muppets,” “Toy Story” and more.

A fast-paced match-3 game, Disney Emoji Blitz lets players match emojis to score points and unlock new Disney and Pixar emojis. Each emoji collected blasts the board with expressive power-ups like icing away emojis with Elsa from “Frozen” or scaring emojis with Sulley from “Monsters Inc.” Players complete missions to boost the score and earn prizes such as rare Disney Parks-themed Mickey Premium Bar, Matterhorn and Mickey Mouse Ear Hat emojis.

Once an emoji is collected within the game, it is also unlocked in the Disney Emoji Blitz keyboard, which can be used to send Disney and Pixar emojis to friends in messages. With over 6 billion emojis* sent around the world a day, heart-eyed Tinker Bell, unforgettable Dory, singing Ariel and grinning Genie will make conversations with friends and family more magically emotional.

Celebrate World Emoji Day on July 17 with Disney Emoji Blitz

Fans are invited to celebrate the launch of Disney Emoji Blitz on World Emoji Day this Sunday from 2-8pm PT at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA. Guests are welcome to enjoy Emoji-themed games, prizes & photo opps, entertainment by Radio Disney on-air personality Daniel Dudley, and live music from the most buzzed about pop group of the summer – Forever In Your Mind. Disney Emoji Blitz will be available for fans to play while they listen to tunes from Radio Disney.

Revealed today in London during the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” cast panel at Star Wars Celebration was Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series “Jyn Erso” action figure — the first of new “Rogue One” products to be seen publicly.

The 6-inch figure was revealed by Jyn herself – played by Felicity Jones – with panel moderator, Gwendoline Christie who welcomed Felicity to the action figure club. “Jyn” will be represented across a variety of products – something fans will have to wait and see for themselves later this year, when all new “Rogue One” products launch globally at retail.

UNIQLO is pleased to celebrate the launch of its newest store location in the U.S. this Friday, July 15, in Town Center at Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. UNIQLO opens its doors at 10 a.m. to the sounds of a Japanese Taiko drum performance, welcoming customers to an experience they will long remember.

“Opening our UNIQLO store at Disney Springs is a dream come true for us,” said Hiroshi Taki, CEO of UNIQLO USA. “We look forward to introducing a new and unique shopping experience, unlike any other UNIQLO store in the world, with special products, Japanese-inspired merchandise and family-fun activities for both locals and vacationers. We hope every day will feel like opening day for our customers.”

UNIQLO at Disney Springs will be the company’s first store in the Southeast region. Upon entering the 25,000 square-foot (2,300-square-meter) store, customers are introduced to the brand’s full assortment of LifeWear: innovative, high-quality clothing that is universal in design and comfort and made for anyone, anywhere. The walls of the first floor are lined by such core products as Supima Cotton T-shirts, Dry Pique Polo Shirts, and Premium Linen Shirts, in a variety of colors and styles for any occasion. Walking farther into the store, customers see special concept corners unique to UNIQLO at Disney Springs that bring the brand’s Japanese heritage to life, alongside an assortment of Disney-inspired products.

The second floor opens to a room dedicated to the athletic wear worn by UNIQLO’s Global Brand Ambassadors, including men’s World No.1 singles tennis player Novak Djokovic and top golfer Adam Scott. Also featured are men’s and women’s innerwear products such as AIRism, made with cooling technology, and socks piled high in 50 colors. A wall of UTs (UNIQLO T-shirts) highlighting designs by modern artists, and casual wear for men, women, kids, and babies make up the rest of the floor.

 

Japanese Heritage:

Exclusive Japanese “omiyage” (souvenir) items are available for purchase, including silk folding fans, uchiwa fans, paper samurai costumes and Buddha boards. Themes from “Kabuki,” a classical performing art in Japan, are featured on UTs, and Yukatas – light cotton kimonos – are available for women and girls. In addition, the store windows highlight artfully-folded paper exhibits by artists Mr. Edmund Ooi and Mr. Shin Tanaka, and in-store daily activities include origami and calligraphy lessons.

Exclusive Products:

An assortment of products are sold exclusively at the UNIQLO store at Disney Springs and at the Uniqlo.com online store, featuring iconic Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, as well as “city” T-Shirts including Orlando, Florida. The store also sells exclusive Disney-themed patches, which can be ironed onto any UNIQLO item of clothing on the spot as a complimentary service.

Customers can share their excitement about the new UNIQLO store via the company’s social media channels Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #UniqloDisneySprings.

Columbia Sportswear recently opened a new branded retail location at Disney Springs in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The 5,000-square-foot store features a stunning overhead display of 500 fish in a pool of reflected light, artwork and sculpture inspired by the Florida coast, and on-site embroidery so customers can personalize their purchases. The new store offers Columbia’s Performance Fishing Gear (PFG) and a range of technical apparel and footwear designed to keep the entire family cool, dry and protected.

Disney Springs is nearing completion on the largest expansion in its history and emerging as an exciting new waterfront district for world-class shopping, unique dining and high-quality entertainment. The new Columbia store is located in the district’s new Town Center neighborhood, which offers a sophisticated mix of shopping and dining along with a promenade where guests can relax, refresh and reconnect with each other.

“We’re excited that everyone who visits Disney Springs can have the chance to enjoy the great Florida sunshine in Columbia’s legendary apparel and footwear,” said Shawn Cox, Senior Vice President of Retail for Columbia Sportswear. “Our PFG collection is anchored around the water and the sun, and it’s a perfect match for spending the day with friends and family at Walt Disney World Resort and beyond.”

Every PFG product is thoughtfully designed with fabrics, construction and industry-leading technologies for enjoying long days on the water or under the sun. The PFG collection is inspired by the performance, style and comfort needs of professional and recreational anglers, and is being embraced as a lifestyle brand by consumers of all ages.

For more than 75 years, Columbia has developed innovative products and technologies with one simple goal: They want you to enjoy the outdoors longer. Based in the Pacific Northwest, Columbia’s innovative products are developed and tested under the watchful eyes of its 92 year-old chairman, Gert Boyle. Everyone at Columbia continues to follow Boyle’s mantra: “It’s perfect. Now make it better.”

Grand Opening Activities

Columbia’s Disney Springs store is celebrating its grand opening on Wednesday, July 13, 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Everyone is invited to visit the store during this time to participate in raffles and enjoy appetizers, live music, and beverages.

phone battery charged
Now a days everyone has a cell phone. Parents, kids, even your pets. Ok not really your pets but pretty much everyone. I know when I visit the Disney Parks I post photos, check the Chip and Co Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. With trying to capture each moment, sometimes it’s hard to keep the phone battery charged.

I know you should enjoy the parks but sometimes lines can be long and if you’re anything like me I take about 500 photos a day. On my last trip to Disneyland before I left, I picked up one of these Anker PowerCore 20100. I was a little skeptical if it would be sufficient enough to keep my cell phone charged for such a heavy user. I was completely wrong. This little beauty had enough juice to recharge my Samsung S6 5 times! I couldn’t believe something that small could keep my phone battery charged the entire day and then some.

Whenever I went into a dark ride, sat down for a meal, or walking around I kept my phone plugged in. The other thing that I loved about the Anker PowerCore 20100 is that is uses the Fast Charging technology that is on all newer devices. So I could let my battery get down to 10% and it would charge it back up to full in no time. Honestly this is a MUST HAVE if you have an iPhone, Samsung Galaxy or any other smart phone.

It comes in White or Black and you are going to love the price. It is only $39.99 on Amazon, with free shipping for Prime members! Not bad!

It will allow you to plug in 2 devices at once so make sure to bring your cables with you. One family could get away with using just one of these all day at the Disney Parks. Not bad huh?

Lavish Art Deco furnishings mingle alongside subtle nods to classic and contemporary Disney characters. Original paintings, statues and woodwork paying homage to the golden age of ocean liners envelop you in a radiant ambiance that is both rich and distinctive. And wondrous themed venues—including youth clubs, restaurants and nightclubs—carry you to faraway places where memory and magic come together.

Special Offerings

Chart a course for more magic as you celebrate the holidays and share in special day-long celebrations on select Disney cruises. Celebrate seasonal events—Halloween and the Winter Holidays—at sea during Disney Holiday Cruises, and delight in unique meet-and-greets, entertainment and dining during Special Days at Sea—including the FrozenDeck Party and Star Wars Day at Sea. Learn more about Holiday Cruises and Special Days at Sea.

Rotational Dining

Experience the star treatment as you enjoy Disney’s one-of-a-kind Rotational Dining for dinner, in which you along with your personal wait staff “rotate” to one of 3 wondrously themed restaurants nightly, ensuring you enjoy a delicious meal expertly prepared to your liking in a unique setting.

Disney Cruise Line Navigator App

When you download this official onboard app for your mobile device—you can quickly and easily dive into what’s happening on your entire cruise, including activity locations and times, Main Dining restaurant menus, deck plans, ports of call information and much more. You can also save favorite activities and even text others while onboard!

Split Bathrooms

Staterooms aboard all Disney ships include plenty of space, ample storage and divided bathrooms with a separate sink and toilet in one area and a shower and extra sink in the other—a cruise industry first—that lets several people wash up at the same time.

Guests with Disabilities

Stay in comfortable staterooms and enjoy a full range of services, facilities and amenities on every Disney ship. Our dedicated team of caring Crew Members will do their best to accommodate your every need. In addition, almost all Guest areas onboard—including theaters, restaurants and shops—are accessible to all Guests. Learn more about the onboard services and facilities available to Guests with disabilities.

Special Diets

Low-sodium, kosher and certain other special, diet-restricted meals may be available during your cruise. Simply indicate your dietary requests or allergies when you book your vacation—and let your waiter know before each meal—and we’ll do our best accommodate your dining requirements.

This holiday season, give a gift that’s both nautical and nice: a cruise on the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream or Disney Fantasy, all decked out with holiday cheer. Starting early November, Disney Cruise Line adds sparkle to each ship during Very Merrytime Cruises, with traditional “turkey day” fanfare, Christmas feasts, “snow flurries” and New Year’s Eve galas. But the best part might just be relaxing on deck instead of shoveling snow.

During these voyages through the new year, special stem-to-stern holiday events include:

  • “Mickey’s Tree-Lighting Magic” in the atrium lobby on the first night of the cruise, where Disney characters lead holiday carols and the lighting of the glittering, three-deck-tall tree.
  • “Santa’s Winter Wonderland Ball” in the atrium lobby, where Disney cruisers welcome the guests of honor, Santa and Mrs. Claus, with a grand celebration featuring Broadway-style entertainment, favorite Disney characters and classic holiday tunes. This evening of enchantment is made complete when a special pair of royal sisters joins the party and causes a flurry of “frozen” fun as a magical snowfall overtakes the atrium.
  • Dickens-inspired carolers carrying the spirit of the holidays throughout the ship while singing holiday classics, sometimes with the help of favorite Disney friends. At the end of the cruise, children will have the opportunity to join the carolers onstage for a special farewell show.
  • Family holiday activities including building gingerbread houses and meeting Santa Claus.
  • Youth holiday crafts such as decorating stockings and gingerbread men cookies, making holiday cards and creating holiday animation cells.
  • “Deck the Deck Holiday Party,” a tropical celebration with Disney friends leading games such as hula hooping and limbo under oversized candy canes, along with dances for the whole family like the “Yuletide Slide” and a conga line around the pool.
  • A special holiday edition of the cheerful farewell celebration on the final night of the cruise, with beloved Disney characters and the ship’s crew in an engaging musical finale led by Mickey Mouse.

On Thanksgiving Day, guests will enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving Day feast and visits from Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse dressed in traditional Thanksgiving attire. Also during the special Thanksgiving voyages, NFL football games will be broadcast live on the ships’ outdoor, jumbo LED screens – Funnel Vision – located near the family pool.

Christmas morning at the atrium lobby tree Santa Claus and his helpers will have a surprise for all the kids, and guests will delight in a special musical performance from the children. A traditional Christmas Dinner will be served that night in the dining rooms.

Christmas services will be held on Christmas Day with a midnight mass on Christmas Eve. Hanukkah services will be held each day, Dec. 24 to Jan. 1.

When the ships stop at Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay, during the holidays, the celebration continues with “snow flurries,” a decked-out Christmas tree, Disney character meet-and-greets and holiday island music.

For an extra sprinkle of holiday joy, special amenities are available for stateroom delivery. Purchased in advance of sailing, these include holiday-themed gift packages and treat baskets and even mini Christmas trees decorated with ornaments, red berries, mini carnations and a bow topper. Plus, during the holiday cruises, the Disney Cruise Line holiday merchandise collection and ever-popular Disney Cruise Line ornaments will be available in the gift shops.

To ring in 2017, voyages during the holiday include a special New Year’s Eve party, complete with music, sparkling wine in commemorative flutes and a midnight countdown.

To celebrate the holidays, the Disney Magic sails four- and five- night Bahamian cruises, five-, six- and seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruises, and seven-night Western Caribbean cruises departing Nov. 5 to Dec. 23; the Disney Wonder sails four- and seven-night Western Caribbean cruises, and seven-night Bahamian cruises departing from Nov. 10 to Dec. 23; the Disney Dream sails three- and four-night Bahamian cruises departing from Nov. 7 to Dec. 22; and the Disney Fantasy sails seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises departing from Nov. 19 to Dec. 24.
