Disneyland - Dates Set for New Experiences!

We haven't had much Disney news in awhile - so I am so excited to bring you the dates for three new experiences opening up this year!  And I hear this is just the start - 2011 will be a huge year for Disneyland! (and us quite frankly!) How exciting!!

Grand opening June 3: At Disney California Adventure park, get ready for an all-new voyage with one of Disney’s most beloved characters, Ariel. The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure will invite guests to take a journey under the sea to experience all the fun and adventures in Ariel’s world. From the great songs to state-of-the-art animatronics and special effects, guests will become a part of her world in a way that’s never happened before.  This is my all time favorite Disney movie - so I am so excited and very much looking forward to what's in store!

 May 27 Premiere: “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade” officially steps off for Memorial Day weekend, with an explosive musical score, thrilling rhythms and bold percussion that will have people dancing to many of their favorite Disney tunes. Look for whimsical float units, live musicians and some of your favorite characters. Mickey Mouse and his pals will be jamming like never before and creating an atmosphere that will be…soundsational!

Believe it or not, a few months ago was the first time we actually stood through one of the parades at California Adventure - and I could not believe what we had been missing out on!  The music and the vibrations were enough to get you moving and put a smile on your face no matter what age you were.  The kids loved the dancing - it got them up and moving their little hips and of course made for great photo opportunities!  I can tell you, we won't be missing a parade again!

Grand opening June 3:  (one of my favorite rides is back!!)  For those who dare to venture into the deep, dark corners of the universe, Star Tours – The Adventures Continue officially launches in Tomorrowland at Disneyland park, taking guests on interstellar adventures to Coruscant, Tatooine, and other destinations in the “Star Wars” galaxy. With the return of favorite Star Wars characters and the addition of more familiar faces and destinations, guests are going to experience Starspeeder travel in an all-new way…in 3D!

Looking forward to an exciting year at the California Disneyland Resort!! (as always :)
