This week there have been many announcements coming out of Walt Disney World regarding the upcoming “Monstrous Summer” campaign. Last night, a larger than life sized Mike Wazowski, projected on Spaceship Earth, made the official announcement. We have posted the news stories as they have come out, but here’s the rundown, so far, with what’s to come this summer from Disney!
The Magic Kingdom Park in Florida and Disneyland Park and Disney’s California Adventure Park in California will stay open from 6 a.m., May 24 to 6 a.m., May 25, 2013, marking the beginning of a summer of fun inspired by the upcoming Disney/Pixar movie Monsters University.
In Florida, the Magic Kingdom will feature a Monsters University theme where Mike and Sulley will be the Grand Marshals of the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” day parad, and also will make appearances in Tomorrowland. Guests also will find 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. Very fun, if you can stay awake!
In California, guests can 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. The new Fantasy Faire Royal Theatre at Disneyland will become a Royal Dance Hall late at night with a live band and dancing, and guests of Disney California Adventure will find Monstrous photo opportunities with new Monsters University “Dorms” in Hollywood Land and a new Monsters University float leading the Pixar Play Parade.
All three overnight parties will feature limited time merchandise and food that you can buy to celebrate the event!
Walt Disney World Monstrous Summer includes new offerings and popular favorites in all four parks. This is the first summer for New Fantasyland, which has received rave reviews from guests since its December grand opening as the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history. Guests also will find new, engaging offerings for the entire family throughout the Walt Disney World Resort this summer such as an interactive “Pirates Adventure” game at Magic Kingdom, the newly re-imagined Test Track at Epcot, the new Disney Junior show, featuring Sofia The First and Doc McStuffins, as new additions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, plus Wilderness Explorers at Disney’s Animal Kingdom that will bring families together in exciting new ways.
We will continue to keep everyone posted on further announcements regarding the upcoming events.
