You guys ready to whale-it-up!?
Disney Parks Blog just announced that, on Saturday, June 11, 2016 Disney Parks will be celebrating its first annual “Speak Like a Whale Day”. This wonderfully-strange day is inspired by none other than the loveable blue tang, Dory, and her new friends Bailey the beluga whale, and Destiny the whale shark. Guests can learn to speak the language while taking part in some whale-sized fun! Sounds like a blast, right?
Here’s how guests can get in on the action:
- Guests at Disneyland Resort in California, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disney Cruise Line ships will receive a complimentary button to celebrate the day on June 11 (while supplies last).
- At the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort, families can dive into “undersea” themed activities, including a live DJ, games and giveaways. Young guests can attend “Whale Speak University” and give speaking the language a try.
- At The Seas with Nemo & Friends in Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort, guests can learn about the real-life counterparts of the characters from the film and see them in their massive 5.7-million-gallon saltwater aquarium home. Experts from Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment Team will be on hand throughout the day to help guests find Dory and her friends and get a closer look at their world.
- Dory and some of her new friends from Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” have joined Crush at the Turtle Talk with Crush attraction at Epcot and Disney California Adventure park. Guests can meet Destiny the whale shark, Bailey the beluga whale and Hank the “septopus.”
Take a look at this video from two of the stars from “Finding Dory,” Ty Burrell and Kaitlin Olson taking a crack at their best whale-speak:
