It’s almost summertime, and like the great Olaf, we could not be more excited. Warmer weather, weekend getaways, long days of sunshine, and lots of Disney experiences are ahead. With an amazing spring of Disney things coming to a close, we look forward to new summer adventures in the great wide somewhere. If you’re looking for your next Disney adventure in the sun, look no further than this list:
When: June 16
We have been counting down the days until we can find out what happens next for Lightning McQueen and friends. We especially can’t wait to meet new character Cruz Ramirez (pictured above with Lightning.) In the meantime, make sure to watch the latest Cars 3 trailer to get ready for an epic adventure!
When: July 21
Ever since we first saw Descendants on Disney Channel, we have been rotten to the core. Soon we’ll be able to catch up with our favorite VKs and some new VKs, and all of our lives will be better for it. We can’t wait to learn all of the songs and dances, sing along, and base all of our fashion choices on the characters. Watch the trailer to get ready for July 21!
Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure
By now, you’ve probably heard that Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is open at Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort, and that it is epic. Along with this amazing new attraction, you can meet Star-Lord, Groot, and Gamora, and have an Awesome Dance Off. What could be better? It’s all part of Summer of Heroes and we feel like a hero just thinking about it.
Classic Space Mountain Returns to Disneyland
We absolutely loved Hyperspace Mountain at Disneyland, and we’re super excited to see the classic Space Mountain return again. Sign us up for a few rides on this epic space adventure!
Fantasmic! Returns to Disneyland
One word, millions of exclamation points: YAY!!!!!!!!!! We. Can’t. Wait. We can’t wait. WE CAN’T WAIT. We’re ready for some true magic, Disneyland style when one of our favorite spectaculars returns to the Park!
Tomorrowland Skyline Lounge at Disneyland
Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
We were able to witness the opening ceremony of this beautiful new land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World, and let us tell you, it is not to be missed. For a sneak peek, take a beautiful look at Pandora from day to night, check out these insanely cool sweet treats, and study up on these fascinating fun facts. Pandora – The World of Avatar also includes two brand new attractions that are absolutely epic: Flight of Passage and the Na’vi River Journey. You have to experience them, as they both brought us tears of joy.
Beauty and the Beast for Your Home Collection
When: June 6
We absolutely loved the live-action retelling of the tale as old as time, so of course we are going to add it to our collections so we can watch it over and over again with our friends. The film is available on Digital HD and Blu-ray on June 6 and we’ve already pre-ordered a copy! While you wait for your copy, make sure to find out your live-action Beauty and the Beast DNA, and then check out this amazing behind-the-scenes footage of Dan Stevens as Beast!
Bambi for Your Home Collection
This animated classic surely needs a home in our Disney movie collection. We’re absolutely in awe of the art of the film, largely influenced by Disney Legend Tyrus Wong, which you can get a more in-depth look at here. The classic is available now on Digital HD, and on Blu-ray and DVD on June 6.
DuckTales and Tangled Comic Books
We love this comic book art! You can see more of it here in our exclusive sneak peek. DuckTales and Tangled are two of our favorite stories, so we’ll be picking up copies of these for our summer vacation reading!
When: July 14-16
Ah, D23 Expo: a magical time of year for Disney fans everywhere. We’re so excited for the endless amount of surprises and delights that await us this year, including Alan Menken’s one-man show, and the Disney Pirates exhibit. Keep checking back here for even more news about this epic event!
It’s going to be a great summer for Disney fans, and we could not be more excited. Mood:
