This month began with a big announcement from Disney: Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort in California and Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida will remain open 24 hours on February 29, 2012, to celebrate “One More Disney Day” on Leap Day.
In similar celebratory fashion, we told you about One More Disney Park—Shanghai Disney Resort—coming to Mainland China in about four to five years. The Resort will be “both authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese.”
While in China, we checked in with Hong Kong Disneyland. This Resort has a “land” I wish they’d bring to Walt Disney Word: Toy Story Land. How fun it would be to walk right into the world of Andy’s toys!
We also celebrated Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dragon at Hong Kong Disneyland. Special events continue through February 5th.
We ventured a bit North and across the water to Japan’s Tokyo Disney Resort, stopping first at Tokyo DisneySea to join the 10th Anniversary festivities. We also went under the sea and became part of Ariel’s world at Mermaid Lagoon.
Tokyo’s Disneyland Park is also loads of fun! We found Toontown to be a great place for the Park’s younger Guests to get their first taste of roller coasters. They can also explore some favorite Characters’ homes.
Speaking of Characters, Tokyo Disneyland’s Fantasyland it the place to find Character-themed attractions and shows, from Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and several other fan favorites.
We also hopped aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow for a flight on Soarin’, hopped…or bounced on Tiggerific Tuesdays, enjoyed several Wordless Wednesdays, and hosted a few great Giveaways. Earn Your EARS also resumed this month, and a new project will be out very soon.
Take some time to look back over January’s posts. Be sure to try out some of the activities and let us know how they turned out for you.
Coming in February: Disney Cruise Line!
