The Tables in Wonderland team just keeps coming up with fun ideas for dinner. This time it’s a “Cairo Dinner Show” at the Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – and everyone gets to be on stage! . Diners will watch the first scene of the live-action show from the first two rows, then the set will open to reveal a beautifully set dining room right on the stage. And while guests dine, the director yells “Action!” and the adventures continue all around the tables.
Hi everyone. I’m thrilled to start off the day by breaking another exciting announcement here on the Disney Parks Blog about two new Specialty Room offerings coming to the Walt Disney World Resort – health and wellness suites and Royal Guest Rooms.
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has a long-standing history of honoring military personnel and their families and today, we’re pleased to announce that we are extending our discounted theme park tickets and room rates for active military and spouses, retired military, National Guard and Reservists through September of 2012. This extension coincides with The Walt Disney Company’s participation in “Joining Forces,” an initiative launched by the White House to bring attention to the unique needs of America’s military families.
I thought you’d enjoy seeing what makes Easter so special here at Walt Disney World.
If I had a nickel for the hours I spent as a child playing with my Star Wars toys, I would be living on a beach in Maui right now. Luckily, my parents saved those toys (thanks Mom and Dad), and my son now spends hours pretending he is in a galaxy far, far away. Soon, he will have a few more toys (among several awesome things) to add to his Star Wars collection, especially with the launch of “Star Tours – The Adventures Continue” on May 20. But wait! I get to photograph and write about merchandise created for Star Tours? Sign me up! After reviewing the more than 40 items we’ve created, I have selected a few of my favorites to share with you.
One of the more challenging holiday tasks for me growing up was finding my Easter basket; it was always hidden on Easter morning. Before I could enjoy a milk-chocolate bunny (ears first, of course), I had to find it hidden somewhere around my house. Somehow my sister always seemed to find her basket faster than me (don’t get me started about the Easter egg hunt!). For those guests who are visiting the Walt Disney World Resort this week, I found some Easter baskets (pun intended) that are perfect for the holiday.
Heads up Pixar fans – we’re breaking an exciting announcement this morning on the Disney Parks Blog.
How about we kick off this week with a look at what’s to come at Epcot? This summer, we’ll be offering great tunes at the park from some of the world’s best tribute bands during the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series. It all happens at the open-air American Gardens Theater in World Showcase beginning in June and this year, we’re featuring a lineup of bands playing tribute to tunes from U2, The Bee Gees, Janet Jackson, Bon Jovi and and others.
Recently, we talked about the characters you’ll meet in Star Tours – The Adventures Continue. Since then, there’s been a lot of speculation about where we’ll meet those characters.
Foodies, rejoice and check out these delectable new tastes on Walt Disney World signature menus. Then tell us what Disney dish you’ve tasted lately that’s worth sharing.
For many years, we’ve been thrilled to host high school graduation celebrations at Walt Disney World known as Grad Nite. And I know many Disney Parks Blog readers (like myself) have been part of the tradition – it’s become a rite of passage for seniors. That’s why today we wanted to share an important update; we will no longer be hosting Disney Grad Nite at the Walt Disney World Resort after this year’s event. With more leisure guests visiting in the springtime, it’s become challenging to schedule special events during April and May. Instead, graduates will have new opportunities to celebrate with us in the parks at more flexible and convenient times.
