Friday we spent a lovely day at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios with our friends the Wilsons. That morning we had been talking about last year’s Monstrous Summer All-Nighter and how we hoped Disney would do another 24 hour party this year. At about 12:30pm I started getting texts from some of my Disney friends who were home seeing the announcement of Disney’s Rock Your Disney Side 24-hour summer kick off! I sat on a bench in Innoventions and started researching what the event would entail and posted on some friend’s Facebook walls to start organizing our group for another monumental Disney experience.
Disney’s Ultimate Tweet
140 Disney characters gathered at Walt Disney World Resort today creating the Ultimate Tweet to announce the latest Disney Parks bi-coastal, all-night extravaganza; and guests are invited to show their “Disney Side” by dressing as their favorite Disney hero or villain. *
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.

What is Your Disney Side?
Everybody has two sides. There’s your normal, everyday side that goes to work, studies for school and doesn’t do anything crazy. But you also have another more fun side—your Disney side. That’s the side you simply can’t wait to share as a family. It’s the side of you that laughs more, screams more, says “yes” more and just plain lives life to the fullest. It’s the side of you that comes out to play the moment your family steps through the gates of a Disney Theme Park. So why wait? Share the magic right now and come show your Disney side!

Why I am so Excited!
- The party is being held May 23-24, 2014. May 25th is my birthday soooo I can spend my last days as a 49 year old celebrating with Mickey Mouse!!
- Disney 24-hour events are epic!
- I’ve been showing my Disney Side since my first visit to Walt Disney World in 1972 and I plan to show my Disney Side until long after I am gone because I have passed my love of all things Disney down to my children!
- Spending 24-hours in a Disney park with friends and family creates memories that last forever!
- I’ll be entering the sweepstakes everyday because a trip to Disneyland is on my bucket list but not in my budget and winning that contest would be an epic 50th birthday present.
So, do you think I’m crazy or do you want to join me at the Rock Your Disney Side event? I’d really love to know what you think about this event so please leave me a comment.
