Whether you go souvenir shopping at the parks or are looking for some awesome duds at home, you can’t go wrong with this whimsical hue. You’ll find everything from ears and backpacks to tumblers and awesome tees! Visit shopdisney.com for more!
Make a Wand ID on the DisneyNOW App
Though all of the attention may be focused on the Disney+ streaming service slated to be released in November, don’t forget that there’s plenty of Disney-themed fun to be had on the DisneyNOW App. Many of us have grown up watching some of the Disney Channel’s biggest stars introduce the next episode of their show by waving a magical want reminding us that “…you’re watching the Disney Channel!” If you’ve ever longed to imitate your favorite Disney stars nows your chance through the Wand ID feature. Using the #DisneyChannelStar activity you can film your very own Wand ID to share with your friends!
Pick Up Your Special Edition Lion King Plush
Show your love for all things Lion King with gorgeous limited edition Simba and Nala plush dolls. The best thing about these awesome animals is that your purchase also goes to support the Lion King Recovery fund. For each plush you purchase, Disney will donate $5 to the Wildlife Conservation Network in support of the LRF and it’s local partners. You can find these gorgeous items here.
Imagination Pink Treats
In addition to Magic Mirror Metallic, another Disney fashion trend that we can absolutely get on board with is the amazing array of Imagination Pink treats hitting the parks. Some of our favorites include the Imagination Pink Cupcake at Jolly Holiday Bakery (Disneyland) which features a pound cake with raspberry marmalade filling topped with raspberry buttercream and swirl frosting. For those on the East Coast, there’s also the Pretty in Pink Strawberry Tart available at the All-Star Resort food courts. It features strawberry popping pearls and strawberry-raspberry mousse topped with pink glitter glaçage, chocolate ears, pink crispy pearls, and a pink chocolate bow.
Have Brunch at the Lamplight Lounge
For those planning a Summer visit to Disneyland Resort, we have one dining experience that you won’t want to miss. The Lamplight Lounge is offering a new weekend brunch in the heart of Pixar Pier. Tuck into delicious dishes like French Toast, a savory Brunch Burger, Crab and Potato Cake Benedict and more while you enjoy the amazing views of the pier! The Lamplight Lounge is known for its creative libations and Brunch is no exception. Our recommendations are the Cinnamon Toast Cocktail or one of their amazing mimosa flights featuring mango and watermelon variations of this classic cocktail.
