Yep, it’s still going, even though I haven’t blogged about it for a while. 🙂
There are actually quite a few going for the month of May so far, with another big and exciting event coming up near the end of the month! Plus, I just barely missed blogging about a very exciting event that was well-received among the Disneyverse, which was a Star Wars Day celebration! Yeah, Hollywood Studios has its annual Star Wars Weekends in May, but this year saw the first Star Wars Day celebration on May 4th (because, you know. May the Fourth be with you? I needn’t say more). The event included basically a mini-SW weekend with character opportunities, dance parties, and a fireworks show to end ’em all. If you weren’t there, you obviously don’t love Star Wars.
(I am crying in shame in a corner, btw, since I *thought* I loved Star Wars but I wasn’t there, so obviously…)
Anyway, this week’s offerings at Walt Disney World include a Cinco De Mayo celebration kicking off today (May 5) and going until 5/11! This includes not just a Cinco De Mayo celebration but also a Dia de los Ninos party as well. The festival is taking place at Epcot’s Mexico pavilion and includes music, appearances by the Three Caballeros (yay!), dancing, marionnettes, and food! You can also get some limited-edition Cinco de Mayo ears!
May 11 sees the coronation celebration adding Merida, from “Brave”, as the next official Disney Princess. The event is attended by all 10 of the current Disney Princesses, because you can’t see them ANYWHERE else. 😉
And finally, advance warning – uh, advance notice: on May 24, the Magic Kingdom will be open for a 24-hour party kicking off the Disney Monstrous Summer celebration. This party will be held at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure, too, on the same date! So if you, unlike me, are able to stay up super late and have a good time… it’s going to be a BLAST!
Other Limited Time Magic offerings this week include the Cinco De Mayo ears, and a new nighttime show, “Magical”! You can not only experience the show, you can get glowing ears and accessories:
This May, come glow with a “Magical” new show at Disneyland Park—purchase your very own light-up interactive ear hat and engage with shows and attractions across Disneyland Resort like never before, including “Magical,” Disneyland Park’s newest fireworks spectacular. But that’s not all—as part of Limited Time Magic, discover a “Magical” fireworks viewing area along Main Street, U.S.A., reserved just for you when you’re wearing your “Glow with the Show” ears. Space is limited and will be first come, first served on the following dates: May 5, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18 and 19, 2013.
Whew! So that brings us up to date, right? See you next week – I hope – for more Limited Time Magic announcements!
