Three Disney Theme Parks will stay open for 24 hours during Memorial Day Weekend to kick off a Monstrous Summer on both coasts. This first-ever, three-park all-night party is happening at the Magic Kingdom® Park in Florida, and Disneyland® Park and Disney California Adventure® Park in California. The Parks will stay open from 6 a.m., May 24 to 6 a.m., May 25, 2013, local time.
•In Florida, Magic Kingdom Park will feature a “Monsters University” theme where Mike and Sulley will be the Grand Marshals of the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” day parade and make appearances in Tomorrowland. There will be extra entertainment throughout the day and night, including characters in their pajamas in Town Square during the late night and early morning, and late-night dance parties in and around the courtyard of Cinderella Castle.
•In California, you will be able to party the night away at both parks with special entertainment including: a “Monsters University” “TLT Monstrous” Dance Club and Star Wars characters in Tomorrowland and late-night Character Pajama Party in Mickey’s ToonTown at Disneyland Park. The new Fantasy Faire Royal Theatre at Disneyland Park will become a Royal Dance Hall late at night with a live band and dancing; and Guests of Disney California Adventure Park will find Monstrous photo opportunities with new “Monsters University” “Dorms” in Hollywood Land and a new “Monsters University” float leading the Pixar Play Parade.
Beyond Memorial Day Weekend, it’s shaping up to be a Monstrous Summer at Disney Parks, with a colossal lineup of unforgettable experiences, including entertainment enhancements celebrating the characters of “Monsters University.”
•Mike and Sulley are dropping in from MU to scare up fun all summer long. Some of the monstrous surprises in store include all-new, collegiate settings in which you can meet their favorite aspiring scarers. On the Backlot at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, Guests will find the Monsters University Student Union, complete with a view of the campus. Meanwhile, at Disney California Adventure Park, Mike and Sulley can be found right outside the university dorms, recreated in Hollywood Land.
•Also at Disney California Adventure Park, Mike and Sulley show their MU spirit as they lead daily performances of the Pixar Play Parade, and at Magic Kingdom Park, you will chuckle along with the gang at the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor, where they’ve been studying new jokes and are ready to graduate to new comedic bits in honor of their alma mater.
It may be summer vacation, but Monsters University will be in session all season at the Disneyland® and Walt Disney World® Resorts!
