Default Another 24 hour event?

A blogger and several others on fan sites have started to spread word that Disney has planned another 24 hour event for Disneyland and WDW's Magic Kingdom... The rumored date is May 24th... If you check out your calendars, that is the Friday of Memorial Day weekend...

This event may be included as part of the limited time magic promotion and will (if the date is true) will take place on one of the busiest weekends of the year...

Interesting. What could the 'theme' be though? I have a hard time imagining something that could beat 'Another Disney Day' tied into Leap Day. That was cool, and I'm glad I went (although I don't remember much of it ).

The rumored theme is the kickoff for the "Monstrous Summer" campaign. One can only wonder what that will bring.

I hope not. We are supposed to be there that day as we have a dinner reservation for Be Our Guest. If it's a mad scene that day it will not be fun, and there is no chance of us getting the reservation for another day that weekend at this point.

That weekend is one of the busiest of the year... It is going to be a mad scene anyway... Which is why I question who in their right mind picked that date?

It's the weekend after we get off the Dream so we're already there. The Crowd Prediction site shows that it's actually not that bad that weekend. I was surprised by the numbers they are predicting but they haven't moved them up.

Now today they have changed the predicted levels from 4.4 yesterday for May 24th to 10.0 today. Guess we'll have to miss the park this short visit and see it all in November when we have more time.

Disney Parks to Kick Off a ‘Monstrous Summer’ With 24 Hours of Magic on Both Coasts

Spaceship Earth Transforms into “Monsters University” Star Mike Wazowski To Announce
All-Night Parties for Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resorts

ANAHEIM, Calif. and LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (April 25, 2013) – Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort will kick off a Monstrous Summer bykeeping three theme parks open for 24 hours nonstop on Memorial Day Weekend, the traditional start of the familytravel season.

The Magic Kingdom Park in Florida and Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in California will stay open from 6 a.m., May 24 to 6 a.m., May 25, 2013, local time* marking the beginning of a summer of fun inspired by the upcoming Disney•Pixar comedy adventure Monsters University.

The oversized fun of a 24-hour Disney park “All-Nighter” called for an equally epic announcement, and the huge sphere of Spaceship Earth was transformed from
Disney Parks icon to Disney Pixar “Eye-con,” becoming a 180-foot-tall, fully animated Mike Wazowski, the loveable green-bodied, one-eyed monster who joins best pal James P. Sullivan (“Sulley”) in the prequel to Monsters, Inc., this summer as college students with hopes of becoming Scarers.

Walt Disney World President George Kalogridis joined Mike to share the news of the first-ever, three-park All-Nighter. “This summer, Disney Parks are bursting with a monstrous lineup of new thrills, shows and happenings,” said Kalogridis. “Guests can start Memorial Day Weekend with a 24-hour-marathon of memory-making as three Parks stay open all day and all night to celebrate the bi-coastal kick-off of a Monstrous Summer at Disney Parks.” Mike and Sulley will take a break from collegiate life and their Scare studies at Monsters University to host the All-Nighter, dropping in to scare up some school spirit. Guests will scream and giggle with delight at the lineup of thrills and entertainment that promises to make this a day and night to be remembered for a lifetime.

In Florida, the Magic Kingdom will feature a Monsters University theme where Mike and Sulley will be the Grand Marshals of the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” day
parade – complete with pomp and circumstance – and make appearances in Tomorrowland. Guests also will find 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, guests can partythe 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 Partyin Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland. The new Fantasy Faire Royal Theatre at Disneyland will become a Royal Dance Hall late at night with a live band and dancing, and guests of Disney California Adventure will find Monstrous photo opportunities with new Monsters University “Dorms” in Hollywood Land and a new Monsters University float leading the Pixar Play Parade.

All three parks will feature limited-edition specialty merchandise and food and beverage offerings plus other surprises throughout the entire day. The All-Nighter is just the beginning of the fun. In California, vacationers at “The Happiest Place on Earth” will see how Disneyland Resort “Just Got Happier” with great new attractions such as the “Mickey and the Magical Map” stage show. It is also the first summer for guests to experience the new Fantasy Faire with Disney Princesses at Disneyland, and theycontinue to enjoythe exciting new offerings of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure.

Walt Disney World Monstrous Summer includes new offerings and popular favorites in all four parks. This is the first summer for New Fantasyland, which has received rave reviews from guests since its December grand opening as the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history. Guests also will find new, engaging offerings for the entire familythroughout the Walt Disney World Resort this summer such as an interactive “Pirates Adventure” game at Magic Kingdom, the newlyre-imagined Test
Track at Epcot, the new DisneyJunior show, featuring Sofia The First and Doc McStuffins, as new additions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, plus Wilderness Explorers at Disney’s Animal Kingdom that will bring families together in exciting new ways.

ABOUT “MONSTERS UNIVERSITY”
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University(MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer.

The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, theyrealize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right. Screaming with laughter and oozing with heart, Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”), produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and features music from future Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and award-winning composer Randy
Newman (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Toy Story 3″). For more information, like us at facebook.com/PixarMonsters University, and follow us on twitter.com/disneypixar. The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in 3D in select theaters.

So, previous posters said it is themed around Monsters University, but did you catch that they are calling it an "All-Nighter"?

I think it's clever.

The one year we decide to splurge for a Christmas trip and skip our regular Memorial Day trip something exciting happens. Just my luck! Hope everyone that gets to go has a great time. My family is super jealous!
