The big buzz around Disney parks is the upcoming 24 hour event to be held May 24th (how appropriate) . This event titled, the Monstrous Summer All Nighter is similar to the “One More Disney Day” Event held leap day of 2012. Were you there? I was. But, today I have a HUGE confession; a confession of monstrous proportions. I attended the “One More Disney Day 24 Hour Event” and I did not make it 24 hours. I failed miserably! I made the freshman mistakes and I’m not proud of them. But, don’t worry, I’ve learned from my grotesque past attempt and I think I’m ready to repeat the course (unfortunately I won’t be able to test out these theories during the upcoming 24 hour event…maybe next time).
Today I’m here to serve as your tutor. I’m sharing what NOT to do to make it 24 hours in the parks! Fingers, paws, and claws crossed, when we finish you’ll be able to add the twenty four hour challenge to your transcript! Let’s get started with this syllabus for success…and yes there will be a midterm exam.
What NOT to do…
Everything kicks-off with special opening moments in front of the parks, leading up to 6 a.m., and then you’re off and running for 24 hours of fun!* Many of your usual favorite characters and shows will be happening throughout the day, but we also have some extra things planned just for this event.
At Magic Kingdom Park, Mike and Sulley from this summer’s new Disney•Pixar film “Monsters University” will pop in to “scare up” some excitement at the “Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It!” Street Party, and serve as Grand Marshals during a special pre-parade, complete with a cheer squad, flag corps and a marching band playing the MU Fight Song! You can catch this procession just ahead of each of that day’s two performances of the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” Parade. In Tomorrowland, the Rockettower Plaza Stage plays host to a “Monster Mania” DJ Dance Party from 4 – 9 p.m. and “Monsters University Movie Night” from 11 p.m. – 5 a.m., featuring back-to-back showings of the original “Monsters, Inc.” and an opportunity to meet Mike and Sulley! Finally, you can dance the night away at Disney’s Up All Night Dance Party at Cinderella Castle, keeping things lively from 2 – 5:45 a.m.
Canine Couples Don Tiaras & Tails for Doggy Prom - 42 Pups “put on the dog” at Best Friends at Walt Disney World Resort
Prom season went to the dogs this week at Best Friends Pet Care at Walt Disney World Resort. More than 40 dogs donned bow ties, boas, tiaras and tails to attend the first-ever Doggy Prom.
The canine couples walked the red carpet into the Best Friends doggy day camp room, which was decorated in a Starry Night theme with dark blue and silver streamers and stars. There was doggy dancing under the disco ball and, just like at high school proms everywhere, a doggy prom King and Queen were crowned.
The staff, wearing prom attire too, took photos of each canine couple to send home to mom and dad.
