We’ve been counting down to this day for a while … and it’s finally here! Now, more than ever, is a great time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, as today a TON of new experiences debut at all four theme parks – and two new ticket offers have been announced to help you enjoy the fun. Let’s take a look!
Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at Magic Kingdom Park
- We’re honoring those true originals, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, in style with new entertainment, merchandise and specialty food and beverages at Magic Kingdom Park. Mickey and Minnie will greet you together at Town Square Theater, and you can dance with your favorite Disney pals during the “Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party” in front of Cinderella Castle.
Party with Pixar Pals as Disney’s Hollywood Studios Celebrates 30 Years
- Beloved Pixar characters help Disney’s Hollywood Studios celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2019. Leap into action during An Incredible Celebration at the theme park, featuring Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible and Frozone in “The Super Shindig” dance party. You’ll also have a chance to meet super-suit designer Edna Mode! In addition, a door to the monster world is open inside Walt Disney Presents, inviting you to visit with Mike and Sulley from Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.”
More Broadway Music Than Ever at Epcot International Festival of the Arts
- The 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Arts comes to life today through Feb. 25, where you’ll indulge in world-class culinary, visual and performing arts, including the Disney on Broadway Concert Series that expands to every day of the festival this year.
Feel the Love During “Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
- Take a walk on the wild during this festival of fun that features Timon and Rafiki from Disney’s “The Lion King.” You can also celebrate the 25th anniversary of “The Lion King” by taking photos with special, dimensional backgrounds on Discovery Island and at the park’s entrance.
And it just keeps getting better, as I have exciting news to share about even more entertainment debuting later this year:
- Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy will keep the Pixar party going when it debuts March 31, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This new show experience will bring you face to face with racing legend Lightning McQueen from Pixar Animation Studios’ Cars films.
- The Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will awaken in a whole new way to honor “The Lion King.” Starting Memorial Day weekend and appearing nightly through Sept. 30, stunning projections on the iconic tree will feature music and animation paying tribute to the classic film.
- Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live! returns to Epcot this summer! Star-Lord and Gamora from the Guardians of the Galaxy films will take you on a musical journey through the cosmos, showcasing hits from Star-Lord’s Awesome Mix tapes. Live shows will take place daily from June 14 through Aug. 18.
