LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — On Friday, Walt Disney World and Disneyland used 140 characters to announce another 24-hour Memorial Day weekend event.
Exactly 140 Disney characters gathered at Walt Disney World Resort to create the “Ultimate Tweet” to announce the bi-coastal, 24-hour all-night party. The announcement was made on Friday.
The all-night event will be held in Florida at Magic Kingdom Park and in California at Disneyland Park and Disney’s California Adventure Park.
The parks will stay open from 6 a.m. on Friday, May 23 until 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 24.
“Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Pluto and 135 of their friends came together to trumpet the countdown to “Rock Your Disney Side: 24-Hours” this Memorial Day Weekend, the traditional start of the family travel season, when guests of Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California can enjoy select parks for 24 hours nonstop,” Disney said in a news release.
The celebration will feature events showcasing the good-vs.-evil of classic Disney stories including character meet-and-greets throughout the parks, special entertainment, event merchandise, and food and beverage offerings.
