May 2014 monthly round up
April showers bring May flowers, right? I can’t wait for that! May at Disney brings the end of Flower and Garden festival, and introduces Star Wars weekends! We also expect to see the opening of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. And even if you won’t be in the theme parks, there’s still some Disney to look forward to – Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie, will premiere at the end of this month.
Disney in your Day news
The biggest thing that has been happening here on the blog is our Runner’s Gear Guide and giveaways! I’ve been able to feature some great Disney running related products, as well as give away a number of them. Plus, there are many more to come this month as well. In the next month or two I’m also hoping to bring back the Disney restaurant tournament, with what I feel may be the hardest category yet – Resort Restaurants. Finally, I got to see Aladdin on Broadway a few weeks ago and I will be sharing my thoughts on that quite soon!
- This summer on Saturday evenings Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be hosting “Harambe Nights,” an exciting private event that includes food and entertainment. It sounds awesome and I wish I could be there!
- The FastPass+ System is changing. Now, after you use your three fastpasses for the day, you can get more. Park hopping will also be available.
- Disney Infinity 2.0 will be coming this fall! And with it, a whole bunch of Marvel figures and levels.
- A new Disney Channel movie called “Descendants,” about the children of Disney villains, will be coming in 2015. It’s just been announced that Kristin Chenoweth will be playing Maleficent!
