“In 2018, we’ve taken our collaboration with Make-A-Wish to a new level. This year’s #ShareYourEars Campaign is our biggest, yet. This year, we’re giving up to $3 million – our largest donation, ever,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products.

From November 18 through Giving Tuesday on November 27, 2018, take a photo showing off your “Mickey Mouse ears” – or any creative “ears” – and upload it to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill is Now Open at Disney Springs

Add another award-winning, celebrity chef-driven restaurant to the Disney Springs line-up! The highly anticipated new venue from celebrated chef Wolfgang Puck, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, is now open in Town Center. Located next to the Coca-Cola Store and easily accessible from the Orange Garage and the Disney Springs Bus Loop, it’s the fourth “Bar & Grill” location from Puck.

Featuring approachable dining with a touch of California elegance, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill offers a dynamic setting inspired by traditional farmhouses and showcases a menu designed to suit every occasion – from casual, leisurely meals to lavish, celebratory gatherings.

Last week, I got a sneak-peek of the menu and I love the mix of options. Expect to find familiar signature dishes like the classic pizzas Puck is known for alongside some new additions. The Olive Oil Seared Red Snapper with mussels, clams and fennel is a noteworthy standout, but truly, everything sounds delicious! (Tip: Make sure you save room; the homemade gelato and desserts are the perfect ending to the perfect meal.)

In the coming weeks, my fellow Disney Parks Blog author Alex Dunlap will share more details on the menu (with photos!) so stay tuned. In the meantime, learn more and book an upcoming reservation for yourself here.

Mickey Mouse Marks Milestone With 90-Character Gathering at Magic Kingdom Park on ABC’s Good Morning America

Earlier today, Mickey Mouse marked his 90th anniversary with a very special gathering in front of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park, which was televised live on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“Good Morning America” personalities Sam Champion and Ginger Zee joined Mickey on the Castle Forecourt stage, with Mickey debuting his new celebration outfit inside Magic Kingdom Park for the very first time. Ginger then introduced a surprise planned for Mickey Mouse by none other than Minnie Mouse, herself: a special gathering of all their pals at the park.

A whopping total of 90 Disney characters then flooded in through Cinderella Castle to surprise Mickey to the tune of the new song, “It’s a Good Time.” Check out the video above to watch this historic moment.

Also joining in on the celebration was Disney super fan Patrice Jenkins, whom “Good Morning America” had selected to accompany Ginger on a whirlwind trip to visit all six Disney theme park resorts around the world. The duo completed their journey arriving at Magic Kingdom Park, crossing the finish line for their epic journey on Main Street, U.S.A., just prior to Mickey’s celebration today.

Patrice, a longtime Disney fan and teacher from Chicago, held back tears as she described what the opportunity meant to her. Check out the video above to hear what Patrice and Ginger both had to say about their Disney travels.

Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more updates on how you can celebrate Mickey Mouse at Disney Parks in the coming months.

Exciting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge news from Destination D

Earlier today, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek shared some exciting news about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at D23’s Destination D event at Walt Disney World Resort. During his presentation, Bob shared two videos, which for the first time ever, revealed the names of the two major attractions that will be part of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on opening day at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The first, entitled Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, puts guests behind the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy in one of three unique flight crew roles.

Our second attraction, which puts guests in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order, is called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. As you can see from this video, which was shot in the actual attraction, both the stakes, and the excitement are running high in this epic Star Wars cliffhanger!

These two new incredible experiences – paired with the land’s dynamic elements and optional interactive integration with the Play Disney Parks app – invite guests to become galactic travelers and live their own Star Wars stories in a galaxy far, far away.

But that’s not all! When you think about Star Wars, I’m sure that the iconic music of legendary composer John Williams comes to mind. Today, Bob shared more exciting news in that Oscar-winning composer John Williams is creating new and original Star Wars themes exclusively for the land! Bob shared a stirring preview of the all-new music, recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios. You can listen to the preview as well in this new video, which showcases recent construction progress at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

And there’s so much more to do at this exotic outpost. For example, you can visit a street market in Black Spire Outpost, shop at food stalls where you can enjoy delicacies like blue milk, or visit the Cantina where you can see an old friend Rex, as well as encounter creatures and characters that are hallmarks of the Star Wars universe. Guests from across the galaxy can experience this new larger-than-life land at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort beginning in 2019.

Adding to the galactic excitement, Bob shared new details about the currently in-development Star Wars resort coming to Walt Disney World. This groundbreaking experience is unlike any resort experience you’ve ever seen. From the moment you board your launch pod, it’s a fully-immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship complete with high-end dining, space-view cabins and all of the exciting action you would expect from an authentic Star Wars experience.

I can’t wait to share more details for both Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and this unique multi-day adventure as we get closer to launching these projects, but in the meantime, tell me which new piece of Star Wars news are you most excited about?

New Nighttime Spectaculars & ‘Beauty & The Beast’ Sing-Along Announced for Epcot

Just moments ago at D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek shared an exciting update on the multiyear transformation of Epcot, including details on new nighttime entertainment planned for the park and additions to World Showcase.

Among the announcements were updates on a new nighttime spectacular planned to open at the park in 2020. This new show will celebrate how Disney music inspires people around the world, and will feature massive floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics and lasers.

But before that new show debuts, there will be a limited-time experience Epcot fans will love, called “Epcot Forever,” which will debut in fall 2019 and will feature classic Epcot tunes. “Epcot Forever” will begin with a spark of imagination that swells into an epic spectacle of fireworks, music, lighting, lasers, and special effects kites.

Bob also announced the name of the “Ratatouille” experience coming to the France pavilion, which will be called Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. He also shared that a new guest offering will soon debut at the France pavilion at World Showcase (in addition to “Impressions de France”) – a brand new “Beauty and the Beast” sing-along created by Don Hahn, producer of the animated and live-action “Beauty and the Beast” films.

First Look: Disney Skyliner Gondola at Walt Disney World Resort

Earlier this week, we shared the exciting update that our new Disney Skyliner gondola system will be operating at the Walt Disney World Resort in fall of 2019. Today, we’ve got more to share – a first look at one of the actual gondolas!

Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled the gondola to Disney fans during D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse event. And as you can see, Disney Skyliner will be fun and offer a new way to experience Walt Disney World Resort with amazing views only available from the sky.

Once operating, the gondola system will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to four resort hotels- Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort as well as the proposed 15th Disney Vacation Club property, Disney’s Riviera Resort.
