IMG_4432It’s all Monsters, all the time!

Three Disney Theme Parks will be staying open for 24 hours during Memorial Day Weekend to kick off a Disney’s Monstrous Summer. This first-ever, three-park all-night party extravaganza will be happening at the Magic Kingdom® Park in Florida, and at both 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 special appearances in Tomorrowland as well. Plus, 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 “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.

IMG_4461And the fun doesn’t end just because Memorial Day Weekend is over…the Monstrous Summer at Disney Parks is just beginning!  With a huge lineup of unforgettable experiences, including entertainment enhancements celebrating the characters of “Monsters University.  Mike and Sulley will be dropping in from MU to scare up fun all summer long.   On the Backlot at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, you will be able to find the Monsters University Student Union, complete with a view of the campus. Meanwhile, at Disney California Adventure Park, Hollywood Land will have its own set of university dorms where you will be able to find Mike and Sulley when they are not leading daily performances of the Pixar Play Parade!   Finally, at Magic Kingdom Park, make sure to check out the Monsters, Inc.
