It's only been a four day week, but that doesn't mean we aren't just as excited to say, 'IT'S FRIDAY!' and as expected, here comes your Attraction Tickets Direct's Friday theme park round up!
Mardi Gras is still in full swing at Universal Orlando, continuing to bring some of the most celebrated and critically acclaimed recording artists to the park to perform. We are beyond thrilled for those of you heading to Universal Orlando this weekend to catch the beats, beads and the big vibes of this Big Easy style parade, as this weekend brings legendary soul, funk, jazz and rythm and blues band Kool and the Gang! Yes, you read correctly, Kool and the Gang as in the band that got the world two stepping and spinning on the dancefloor to tracks like Ladies Night and Celebration! The two time Grammy award winning band will be performing at Universal's Music Plaza tomorrow, the 6th April!
You might recognise this celebrity couple, looking very animated at Disneyland California. Indeed, it's Hollywood's very own Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. Disney fans that have admired the Annie Leibovitz Disney Dream Portrait Series will recognise Olivia Wilde as the face of the Evil Queen from Snow White in the series. Olivia has also featured in films such as Tron and The Change Up. Comedy fans will remember Jason Sudeikis starring alongside Owen Wilson in the 2011 film Hall Pass or in the hillarious film Horrible Bosses, as a certain character who hires a hitman to have his boss killed. The recently engaged couple spent some quality time retreating to the magical land of Disney, and as you can see, had some fun in Fantasyland pretending to pull the sword from its stone in!
How much do you love SeaWorld? And how about those adorable birds that will become the star of the highly anticipated attraction Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin? If you fall into either category then you will be thrilled to know that SeaWorld is giving its fans new ways to interact with the park as it leads up to the launch of the attraction on the 24th May 2013. SeaWorld have released some free Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin screensavers, so you can be reminded of the coming attraction everytime you switch on your computer. They have also launched an Antarctica App for you to download, so you can start to prepare for your journey to the arctic weeks in advance! The Antarctica App is available to download on iTunes now!
