Disney has been tapping into nostalgic merchandising BIG TIME recently!
Panchito. José Carioca. Donald Duck. These are names of three musical legends that have become synonymous with one of Disney’s attractions located in Epcot’s Mexico pavilion!
And nooow you can take them along on your next Gran Fiesta Tour (and entire Disney World adventure!) because these guys just landed their first MagicBand deal!
Hello, there friends! It’s officially spooky season in Disneyland Resort, as the NEW (and already sold out!) Oogie Boogie Bash — A Disney Halloween Party has kicked off in Disney California Adventure.
We’ve already told you all about the new Treat Trails — which you can learn about here! Now we want to chat about all the new entertainment offerings we experienced at the party, from parades to shows and everything in between.
Welcome to our latest roundup of What’s New in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
It was a dreary day in the park, but that didn’t stop us from checking out all the new items, including a super cute cookie! Let’s dive into what we found.
from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Tusker House Restaurant
Time to visit one of our favorite character dining locations: Tusker House! Tusker House is located in Animal Kingdom’s African village of Harambe and offers a character buffet for breakfast and lunch and a “family style dinner buffet” (really just a buffet — no family style service), also with characters!
One added element of dining at Tusker House is the opportunity to reserve the Rivers of Light Dining Package here, which saves a seat at Animal Kingdom’s newly-revamped Rivers of Life: We Are One nighttime spectacular. Generally, the price differential between the character meal and the dining package is pretty small here, so you may find it’s worth the slight splurge to score that reserved seating.
We weren’t after the Dining Package this time, but we sure were excited to see if the food and experience at Tusker House lived up to its past quality. And we ended up eating TWO full meals at once, which we really didn’t expect! (Read on to find out how we did it!)
We’ve got a lot of food to share with you, so let’s get going!
Tusker House is a charming restaurant located on your left-hand side in Harambe as you head toward Kilimanjaro Safaris. Check in is at a stand near the Dawa Bar, and you’ll be given a pager. Here you’re welcome to glance at the menu — but keep in mind it’s pretty generic because it’s a buffet! (Don’t worry: we’ll get more specific, and we have photos of EVERYTHING below!)
June 9, 1934 delivered the animated debut of Donald Duck in the Silly Symphony, “The Wise Little Hen.”
And this weekend (and, in some cases, longer), guests in Disneyland Resort will be presented with several ways to celebrate Donald’s 85th birthday! [Read more…]
Oh, it’s a jolly holiday with DONALD? Finally, Donald is taking his place in the sun with this new treat at Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe in Disneyland!
We’re so excited for our little fluff butt as he will soon be a big STAR in the new Mickey’s PhilharMagic attraction coming to Disneyland. PhilharMagic has been at Disney World since 2005, but it will be opening at the Sunset Showcase Theatre in Disney California Adventure THIS MONTH! Get all the details here!
So exciting! We are happy to report that the Disney Park fan favorite Mickey’s Philharmagic 3D movie musical is coming to the Disneyland Resort! But do not let the title fool you, Mr. Donald Duck himself is the star of this show!
Mickey’s Philharmagic is where Disney music meets Disney magic in perfect harmony in a spectacular 12-minute 3D fantasy adventure. In the show, Donald is unexpectedly swept into a dreamworld and you are taken along for the ride. Disneylanders will be treated to Disney animation and music classics like “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast and “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid!
