No doubt if summer were about to be arriving in the UK some time soon we'd be celebrating here too, but unfortunately for us, and to the delight of those of you heading to the US Disney parks this week, the summer celebrations are taking place at Disney World's Magic Kingdom and the Disneyland California parks. The Monstrous Summer All-Nighter is part of Disney's Limited Time Magic programme, inviting Disney guests to come and enjoy an entire twenty four hours of non-stop magic at the aforementioned parks. The Disney parks have been known to stay open for twenty four hours on occassion, but it is a rare occassion and when it does occur, it's a massive phenomenon that goes down in Disney history. What makes this rare Summer All- Nighter even more special is its monstrous affiliation! Indeed, this Monstrous Summer All - Nighter is being held to celebrate the launch of the highly anticipated Disney Pixar Monsters University, coming to UK cinemas in July!
Of course Mike, Sulley and the entire monsters massive will be making a presence, taking over the parks, turning many normal Disney experiences and attractions into monstrous ones! The festivities will begin on the 24th May at Disney World's Magic Kingdom and both Disneyland California parks at 6 am, when the park gates open, and will continue till 6 am the 25th May.
Here's what to expect...
At Disney World's Magic Kingdom Mike and Sulley will show off their moves, hopefully not too monstrous, in the 'Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It!' Street Party.
Mike and Sulley will also host their very own Monsters University pre-parade complete with a cheer squad, flag corps and a marching band playing the official Monsters University Fight Song! Catch the pre-parade before both showings of the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade.
In Tomorrowland the Rocketttower Plaza Stage hosts a Monster Mania DJ Dance Party from 4-9pm.
At 11pm the Monsters University Movie Night begins, showing back to back showings of the original Monsters University film, till 5 a.m. Not particularly modest, Mike and Sulley will be hanging out for character meet and greets!
If you want to dance the monstrous night away, head to the Cinderalla Castle and get your dancing shoes on for Disney's Up All Night Dance Party from 2.45 till 5.45!
