Just seconds ago, a 180-foot-tall Mike Wazowski from the upcoming Disney●Pixar film “Monsters University”made the official announcement that Disney is 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.
Hey there guys and gals, Anonymouse here! It’s a great day for more Disney gossip, don’t ya think? Well, good news, I have some insider information to share with you! This time, I had to travel a little farther to bring you this news, it’s all the way from Disneyland!
Disneyland will be making some changes to its policy on advanced dining reservations. As most of you know, most table-service locations at Walt Disney World require a credit-card guarantee to hold your reservation. If your party does not make it to your reservation, your credit card is charged $10 per person on the reservation. Until now, Disneyland has not required a credit card guarantee, but will now be adopting the same credit card guarantee as is required at Disney World.
Disneyland Innoventions is one of your favorite places to visit, right? Okay, maybe it’s not your first stop. Last? Ever? As a self-proclaimed Disney Geek, I know that Innoventions isn’t always on my list. All that has changed though. I bet you will get there right after rope drop now.

We’ve been keeping you up to date over the past few days regarding the closure of three major Disneyland attractions, with Space Mountain and Soarin’ Over California still closed. You can catch up on that here. Now, California state regulators want to fine Disney almost $235,000 for violating safety regulations which led to a worker being injured at the Space Mountain ride last fall.
The Orange County Register reported that fines have been proposed by the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health. These penalties arose from an accident in November when a contract worker slipped and suffered broken bones while he was cleaning the exterior of the Space Mountain attraction at Disneyland. Disney has not announced if they have decided to attempt to appeal the penalties.
Over the weekend, we told you that three of the most popular Disneyland attractions had been suddenly shut down due to OSHA citations. Well, although one has been re-opened, but the other two are still closed. The Matterhorn Bobsleds, Space Mountain, and Soarin’ Over California were closed due to failure to meet the state requirement of harnessed fall protection for any employee walkway with more than a 30 inch drop opposite a hand rail. The Matterhorn was able to re-open on Monday, but the other two are still closed indefinitely.
