Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party kicks off November 9 at Magic Kingdom and one of the treats party guests look forward to are the game cards available for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. This year’s event-exclusive card features Carousel of Progress.
This year’s party-exclusive card, “Rover’s Christmas Carousel of Progress” features trusty companion Rover from Carousel of Progress. According to Imagineer Jonathan Ackley, Carousel of Progress was chosen to be featured on this season’s card “because Merlin is inspired by the Carousel of Progress’ celebration of human innovation.”
In case you aren’t familiar, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an in-park interactive experience that allows guests of all ages to join Merlin’s quest to stop Disney Villains from taking over Magic Kingdom Park. Guests use a map to search for villain hideouts throughout the park, and visit magic portals where they use spell cards to fight back against a villain’s plan. The journey begins at the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A., where you can pick up everything you need to play.
Casey’s Corner at Magic Kingdom has revealed their hot dog of the month for November. The all-beef hot dog is topped with pulled pork, cole slaw and barbecue sauce, served with your choice of French fries or apple slices for $12.49, plus tax.
Casey’s Corner is located on Main Street U.S.A. and serves hot dogs, corn dog nuggets, French fries, cotton candy and Cracker Jack.
The Houston Astros’ World Series victory celebration made its way from coast to coast Saturday, culminating in a colorful parade at Walt Disney World Resort that saluted the team’s first world title in its 56-year history.
After clinching the World Series championship in Los Angeles on Wednesday and then taking part in a citywide party in Houston on Friday, Astros star players George Springer (World Series MVP), newly engaged Carlos Correa and American League batting champion Jose Altuve brought the party to Magic Kingdom Park. They signed autographs, posed for selfies with fans and experienced signature Disney attractions – of course they checked out Astro Orbiter – during a whirlwind celebration that personified the amazing power of magic that only happens at Disney Parks.
Then, in front of thousands of enthusiastic fans who lined one of the most famous streets in the world – Main Street, U.S.A., at Magic Kingdom Park – Springer, Altuve and Correa got a one-of-a kind ride atop a magical parade float surrounded by a sea of balloons, confetti and celebratory cheers.
Afterwards, the players and their families joined Mickey Mouse and his pals – who all happened to be perfectly dressed for the occasion in their classic baseball uniforms – for photos in front of the iconic Cinderella Castle. It was a day the Houston trio, their family and their fans likely won’t soon forget.
“It’s been an amazing day,” said Astros shortstop Carlos Correa. “I feel like a kid all over again getting to go to Disney World and spending time with all of these people here who are supporting us and celebrating the (World Series) championship with us. I will never forget the people cheering and crying during the parade. It was the best thing ever and a memory I will never forget.”
The spectacular Disney scene was the culmination of a long-awaited dream for the Astros and the city of Houston which supported the team for 56 years despite never winning a World Series title – and throughout the recent hurricane and subsequent flooding that devastated the city. A bright spot emerged Wednesday night with Houston’s series-winning Game 7 win that propelled the club, its city and its fans to the top of the baseball universe. And to the most magical place on earth.
Their appearance at Disney continued a long and popular tradition of celebrating the world’s greatest sports and entertainment achievements at Disney Parks, a beloved ritual that dates back to 1987. Springer, Correa and Altuve are now among a star-studded lineup of sports heroes – from Super Bowls, NBA Championships, Olympic Games, Stanley Cup championships and so many more – who have celebrated milestone accomplishments by “Going to Disney World!”

World Series Championship team, the Houston Astros, are coming to Walt Disney World Resort this Saturday to celebrate. Here’s what’s happening!
The Astros’ star players – World Series MVP George Springer, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa – will represent the Astros in a magical parade at 12:45 pm ET down Main Street, U.S.A., at Magic Kingdom Park. The celebration pays tribute to the team and the city of Houston that have beat the odds to reach unimaginable heights, providing real-life examples of the power of magic that happens at Disney Parks.
The Astros captured the championship with a 5-1 win in the deciding Game 7 in Los Angeles to take the best-of-seven-game series. The World Series title is the team’s first in its 56-year history.
