You all know how much my family and I love, love, love Walt Disney World. Well, now I have even more excitement for our next trip up there this summer because the Awaken Summer event is happening and Walt Disney World has some amazing new attractions coming to all four theme parks.
Lets start with Animal Kingdom. This is the park that usually closes the earliest but that is all about to change. They will be staying open until 11pm and will have a new night time show called “Rivers of Light.” I have heard it is going to be absolutely amazing! AND my favorite ride at Animal Kingdom, the safari, will now be open for night time safaris. I am totally stoked, ya’ll!
I got to meet with an expert! Brian Rodriguez, a marketing strategy manager, told me all about Awaken Summer and what all was happening at all four parks. Check it out-
All of these new things open at Animal Kingdom THIS weekend, May 27th. So definitely check it out ASAP!
Everyone has Frozen fever, including my own family, which is why we are super duper excited about the new “Frozen Ever After” ride and attraction coming to Epcot this summer. They are completely turning Norway around and making it into Anna and Elsa’s new home. Guests will be able to ride a boat into a world of Frozen songs (with a twist) and experience their favorite Frozen characters after the story…hence the “ever after” part. Then they will also get to meet Anna and Elsa right there in Norway. My daughter and I got a chance to meet Anna and Elsa and they were absolutely delightful. Check it out here.
I got a little sneak peek of this new attraction in Norway (well, at Epcot, but I felt like I was in Norway) and it is going to be amazing, you guys. Seriously, I can’t wait. It all opens June 17th.
I got to meet with a Walt Disney World Ambassador, Caitlin Busscher, who told me all of the inside scoop about this new attraction….
Not to mention that “Soarin” is reopening at Epcot this summer too. It is my favorite ride at Epcot and I have been missing it! Cannot wait to see how they take us around the world now! So stoked!
First of all, may the force be with you. That’s right, we’re now talking Star Wars! I’m speaking my hubby’s love language now- he is obsessed with Star Wars. Starting June 17th at Hollywood Studios, there will be an all new night time spectacular called Star Wars Galactic Spectacular. This will include an amazing new fireworks show, scenes from the movie projected for everyone to see, and of course, the music that we all love. I seriously don’t know how they can top the fireworks shows they already have because they seriously are the best….so I am completely stoked to see this!
Also at Hollywood Studios is a new Star Wars daytime show called Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away that takes you through the entire saga! So, if you are a Star Wars fan, and even if you aren’t, you have to check out Hollywood Studios this summer- there is so much happening!
We can’t leave out Magic Kingdom. Magic Kingdom has a new daytime show called “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” which will have new surprise appearances from characters and princesses! It will take place on the center stage in front of the castle and will be magical!
