Adventures by Disney Announces New American Vacations for 2016

Adventures by Disney wants to encourage your family to get out there and explore America in 2016. That’s why today we’re introducing three new United States vacations that showcase the diverse destinations of Central Florida, Montana, and Washington, D.C. & Philadelphia.


Each of these weeklong trips is filled with activities unique to the destinations visited. On the Central Florida vacation you can enjoy backstage access and VIP experiences at Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, and experience the best of the Florida outdoors. From going behind-the-scenes at the all-new Rivers of Light nighttime spectacular at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and taking part in one-of-a-kind experiences with Disney Imagineers to exploring Central Florida’s unique natural wonders on land – by zipline, swamp buggy and on horseback – and on water in kayaks and aboard an airboat, there is truly something for everyone on this trip.


On the Montana trip you can take part in my personal favorite experience, glamorous camping! Also known as “glamping,” this experience allows you to get in touch with nature while exploring Yellowstone National Park during the centennial of the National Parks Service. Plus, you’ll also get hands-on at an authentic Dude ranch in Big Sky, complete with fun family activities like horseback riding, whitewater rafting, fly-fishing and a private riverside cookout.


In Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, master storytellers and encounters with characters from the past help make history come alive for your family in a fun, interactive way. Immersive adventures at some of America’s most iconic landmarks are paired with exciting yet educational activities, such as a fun-filled scavenger hunt through a 19th century mansion, hands-on experiences at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, a cruise down the Potomac River and more.

From exploring majestic landscapes to discovering American history and savoring a healthy dose of Disney magic, these new Adventures by Disney vacations offer families unforgettable ways to bond and explore America.

Dole Whip Gets Spiked with Spiced Rum!

This year at Epcot’s 2013 International Food & Wine Festival you’ll be able to taste a Dole Whip with a little adult kick to it. This tasty frozen treat will be available at the new Pineapple Promenade Booth. You can see by the pictures below that you won’t be getting more than about 1 shot of spiced rum in this serving but its just enough to remind you that you’re touring around a Food & Wine festival. Compared to the original Dole Whip Float (my personal favorite Disney frozen treat), whip has tons of great pineapple juice for it’s pineapple ice cream to melt into, this new Spiced Rum Dole Whip has nominal liquid. Be prepared for a long line as you approach the Pineapple Promenade Booth. This twist on an already popular Disney dessert (along with the Central Florida sun) is sure to make it a festival favorite. I believe Captain Jack Sparrow would be happy with this treat. “Why is the rum gone?” Disney put it in the Dole Whips!

Here is a list of all the menu items available at the Pineapple Promenade Booth:

  • Dole® Whip
  • Dole® Whip with Siesta Key Spiced Rum
  • Pineapple Upside Down Cake featuring Dole® Pineapple
  • Dole® Pineapple Fruit Cup
  • Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade – Non Alcoholic
  • Samuel Adams® Cream Stout

Couple Creates a Disney Halloween Celebration in Their Own Back (and Front) Yard

Have any of you brightened up your home or yard with Disney Halloween decorations this year?

Then check out the home of Central Florida residents Mickey and Minnie Baus (yep, “Baus” rhymes with “mouse”). They’re a couple of Disney Parks fanatics who annually entertain their neighborhood with an illuminating display of Disney decor in the weeks leading up to Halloween.

Over the weekend, Mickey and Minnie were nice enough to take a few minutes away from their annual Halloween party – for which they dressed as ultimate Disney tourists – to show off this year’s display, which includes a plethora of Disney inflatables, handmade Disney decorations, and much, much more! Check it out below.

New ‘American Idol’ Phillip Phillips Surprises Guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The newest “American Idol,” Phillip Phillips, surprised a theater full of park guests Thursday when he made an appearance on-stage at “The American Idol Experience” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Phillips, who hit the top 10 on the charts with his single “Home,” was in central Florida for a performance of the “American Idol Live!” concert tour. The nationwide tour continues through mid-September.


In addition to making a surprise appearance for guests at “The American Idol Experience,” Phillips taped a series of short videos that Walt Disney Entertainment plans to utilize in the future during the attraction experience.

And of course, what visit to Disney Parks would be complete without a meeting with Mickey and Minnie? Disney Parks Blog author and photographer Matt Stroshane shot this picture of the smiling trio posing in front of the attraction.

Lucky Dog! Mickey Meets His Biggest Four-Legged Fan

Let me share with you something about the Disney Parks Blog team – we’re huge dog lovers, which is why we couldn’t wait to introduce you to Lily, a Labrador-Catahoula pup who lives here in Central Florida.

 Lily, a Labrador-Catahoula pup

When husband-and-wife Disney cast members Francisco and Mejay Aguerre, and their daughter Nicole (also a cast member), lost their beloved Pekingese-poodle mix, Scooby, a few months ago, their house just didn’t feel like a home without a dog to love. Last month, when they began to look online for another pup, they came across a listing for a litter of Labrador-Catahoula mixes. When the listing noted that one of the female pups in the litter was born with “unusual” markings, the family couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the dog’s perfect Mickey Mouse-shaped spot on her lower back.

The Aguerres adopted the pup and chose to name her Lily (after Lillian Disney, Walt Disney’s wife). They recently brought Lily by our photo studio for a rare (and unforgettable) meet-and-greet with the Mouse himself.

According to Mejay, little Lily, who is now nearing three months old, is a perfect fit for their Disney family.

“She’s our baby now; she’s absolutely our baby!”
