This week the entertainment line-up is announced for Fourth of July at Walt Disney World Resort, we get a sneak peek at the new Play Disney Parks app, and a massive expansion is announced for Tokyo DisneySea in 2022. Take a look!
Pixar Pier is opening June 23 at Disney California Adventure park and Disney has shared some photos of the Pixar-themed billboards which will welcome guests at the theme park.
Upon entering Pixar Pier, four large billboards will greet guests as they make their way through the newly reimagined land! Each portrait depicts a beloved Pixar story moment—set in the seaside surroundings of Pixar Pier.
Fourth of July is quickly approaching and Disney is celebrating by releasing the Americana merchandise collection in the Disney Parks. Guests will be able to find patriotic items in red, white, and blue throughout Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort.
“Mixed with images Mickey and Minnie Mouse, this brightly colored assortment is the perfect accent to summer fun,” explained Katie Thompson, Global Merchandise Strategy manager at Disney Parks Merchandise.
Guests looking to add Americana flair to their homes will find drinkware, a dessert plate, mugs, pillows, dish towels and more. Each item contains little details such as Mickey Mouse-shaped silhouettes or stylish embroidery. Eagle-eyed Guests may spot a red hidden Mickey icon in the star-shaped dish filled with white stars.
From T-shirts and dresses to striped Spirit Jerseys and pullovers, adults and kids will discover fresh and fashionable apparel and accessories painted with a patriotic color palette.
New headwear joins the mix with a wide-brimmed straw hat complete with embroidered lettering, or a baseball cap which features a metal bottle cap with bottle opener on the bill.
Fans of handbags by Dooney & Bourke will love the Crossbody bag, wallet and tote, each containing patriotic stylings and images of Mickey Mouse in red, white and blue.
Adorable plush of Mickey and Minnie and collectible Disney pins round out this collection of Americana “must-haves.”
Look for these products in shops at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World Resort including World of Disney, Marketplace Co-Op and Disney’s Pin Traders. Guests may also find the collection at the World of Disney in Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort, and via ShopDisney.com.
Back in April, Disney announced an all-new Play Disney Parks app would be coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts this summer. This interactive app is now available for pre-order on the App Store and Google Play, and we have a sneak peek from Disney.
The Play Disney Parks app will allow guests to play with family and friends while waiting in line for some favorite attractions. There’s something for everyone to enjoy, from activities that interact with select attraction queues to games that bring favorite Disney stories to life in immersive new ways.
Guests can also earn and share digital collectibles when they receive themed achievements, earned for experiences both in the app and across the Disney parks. And with the Disney trivia feature, family and friends can band together to see if they have what it takes to become Disney trivia masters as they discover fun facts about their favorite theme parks.
My Disney Experience app at Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland App at Disneyland Resort will continue serving guests in their vacation planning before and during their visit, the all-new Play Disney Parks app will soon allow guests to discover even more ways to enhance their in-park experience. Get ready to explore Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort like never before.
