May 17, 2013
From 6 a.m. on May 24 to 6 a.m. on May 25, enjoy all the monster-themed madness inside Magic Kingdom park at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, as well as Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park in California. From special entertainment and monstrous merchandise to frightening food and boo-verages, this "All-Nighter" is shaping up to be one scary good time!
Everything kicks-off with special opening moments in front of the parks, leading up to park opening at 6 a.m., and then you're off and running for 24 hours of fun!
At Disneyland Resort, the fun spreads out across two Disney Parks! Disney California Adventure park is having a Hollywood Viewing Party, screening "Monsters, Inc." inside Muppets Theater and hosting Mad T Party outside in Hollywood Land. Both start at 9 p.m. and continue through the night. Elsewhere, the "Monsters University" gang will be out and about with the new MU float from the Pixar Play Parade, happy to pose for pictures with you.
Disneyland park celebrates with a Disney Character Pajama Party, starting after midnight in Mickey's Toontown with classic Disney cartoons, a Mickey Mouse Party Zone with DJ and activities for kids, plus goodies available for purchase, like hot chocolate, milk and cookies and other treats. Over in Tomorrowland, there will be Star Wars characters to meet and the TLT "Monstrous" Dance Club at Tomorrowland Terrace, where you can keep the party going from midnight to 5:30 a.m. During the All-Nighter, the Royal Theatre at Fantasy Faire hosts a Royal Swing Ball, with a live band from 10 p.m. - 1:40 a.m., and beginning June 15 the "Jump, Jive, Boogie Swing Party" will return to the Royal Theatre for select nights during the summer.

Dave Smith and Easter Egg Hunt - LTM Report

1) At Disney California Adventure there was a Vinylmation Easter Egg Hunt going on this week.
You buy the map for $4.95 (no discounts) from one of several stores around the park and then go off to find the eggs. Once you are done you head to Elias & Co to redeem your prize. It is an honor system event. There are no cast members with the eggs. As I walked the park there were a good number of guests participating and all I overheard/observed seemed to be having a good time.

Disneyland - Mickey and the Magical Map and Fantasy Faire Preview
February 01, 2013
The new Disneyland Fantasy Faire, where guests can meet, interact, and learn the stories of the Disney princesses, is under construction in the former Carnation Plaza Gardens area of Disneyland. I had the opportunity to preview the new area, which is scheduled to open on March 12, 2013.
Fantasy Faire is located at the end of Main Street between Frontierland and Sleeping Beauty Castle. As you can see in these photos there is still quite a bit of work to be done before opening, but the basic structures are there. This is the exterior of Royal Hall; the Princess meet-and-greet area is inside. The unfinished pedestal in front will be the location of the Tangled Tower sculpture. Rapunzel's hair will appear to be wrapped around it, and at night her hair will light up with twinkling lights.
