This Memorial Day weekend was celebrated in a big way on both coasts. Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort both launched their summer events with a big 24-hour party event on Friday. Both resorts saw a huge increase of excited fans swarm their parks and the success of the 24-hour day is now pretty cemented.
Walt Disney World stepped right into their summer campaign with the Frozen themed “Coolest Summer Ever” featuring the loveable snowman Olaf, which we will see much more of when Disney’s Hollywood Studios “Frozen Summer Fun” event starts June 17th. But for the 24-hour party at Magic Kingdom we did get lots of “Frozen” fun with a opening morning show featuring the characters from the movie and a “Frozen” pre-parade before Main Street Electrical Parade.
Disneyland Resort didn’t disappoint, of course, with their 24-hour party being combined with the launch of the Disneyland 60th anniversary celebration. Both of Disneyland Resorts park got in on the game, staying open for 24 hours, and showcased brand new entertainment.Disneyland Park got a whole new parade and fireworks show while Disney’s California Adventure got a re-imagined World of Color show.
