St. Patrick's Day Festival 2014 Disney World Downtown Disney

It’s St. Patrick’s Day! And if you’re in the Orlando, FL, area today, you can head over to Disney World‘s Downtown Disney where you can take part in the area’s The Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival.

The event, which began on March 7th and will last through the end of St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), involves lots of Irish food, drinks, and live entertainment, along with St. Patty’s Day-themed and inspired collectibles, apparel, jewelry, and more. Also, there’s a Mighty Family Fun Zone presented by Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted from 12pm-9pm over at Downtown Disney West Side, where you can take special Muppets-themed photos, learn how to draw some of your favorite Muppets characters, and take part in games, giveaways, DJ dance parties, and more. (Look for the special Muppets Rice Crispy Treats at the Downtown Disney Food Trucks.)

There is no admission fee to enter Disney World’s Downtown Disney, so you can just head on in and enjoy the festive atmosphere even if you don’t want to spend anything.

The Disney theme parks and destinations are home to memorable characters and attractions, but would you guess epic pranks? Perhaps not. The Disney parks welcome guests of all ages – and all types of humor.

Prank videos populate nearly every inch of YouTube, and the site even plays host to some Disney park-themed ones. Here are five of my favorite Disney prank videos at Disney destinations.

So this is love? Absolutely. Staging a marriage proposal – and an elaborate one, no less – requires meticulous calculation and planning. Aladdin knows that all too well. Orchestrating a marriage proposal at a Disney park, or at least a Disney-themed one, is no easy task. But these six fine YouTube videos prove that the ultimate test of success rests in an acceptance.

Check out six more Disney marriage proposal videos below, and reflect back on some other winners in last year’s similarly themed edition of Disney In Depth.

Disney In Depth: 13 Reasons Why Disney California Adventure Rocks
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

Welcome to California… albeit that you are already in California when in this park. Though once discounted as Disneyland’s unwanted sibling of a park, Disney California Adventure Park has evolved in the past 13 years to become a must-visit destination. February 2014 marks the 13th anniversary of the place that celebrates all things Golden State. Though 13 could be considered an unlucky number – and equally so, for much time Disney California Adventure was referred to as unlucky – the park has been a fortune for the Disneyland Resort.

Here are 13 Reasons Why Disney California Adventure Rocks (in no particular order).

Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith Goes To Disney World For Parade (Video)

Disney World Super Bowl Parade Malcolm Smith 2014

Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Malcolm Smith’s got to utter the famous phrase on Sunday night “I’m going to Disney World” after his team, the Seattle Seahawks, won the big game 43-8 over the Denver Broncos. Each year, the Super Bowl MVP gives this excited response about going to Disney World (or sometimes to Disneyland, depending on where the game is held) when asked on the football field immediately after the win – “You’ve just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do next?”

On Monday, the Seahawks linebacker arrived in Orlando, FL, from the New York/New Jersey area where the game took place the night before, to take part in Disney World’s celebratory Super Bowl parade at the Magic Kingdom park.

Check out a video here below of part of the parade, as well as some words from Smith about his whirlwind experience.

Chinese New Year Disneyland Happy Lunar New Year Celebration, Finn

Today begins the Chinese New Year, so from now through Sunday, February 2, 2014, the Disney California Adventure park at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, will be celebrating the Year Of The Horse with some special events.

Since it’s the Year Of The Horse, one of the steeds, Finn, from Disneyland’s own Circle D Ranch will be part of a procession of performers through Paradise Gardens. Also, visitors to the theme park this weekend will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with Finn, who reportedly is very friendly and loves to have his picture taken.

Disney In Depth: Marvel Possibilities At Disney Parks
Brett Nachman   |

Picture Iron Man flying around Tomorrowland or Captain America leading the marching band on Main Street, U.S.A. Marvel characters are slowly entering Disneyland, as the acquisition of the massive comic-themed library of characters becomes realized in the theme park realm. What can we expect in the years to come? More importantly, what do we want to see?

This week’s Disney In Depth analyzes the many ways Marvel can integrate into the Disney parks without interfering with the themes and experiences we have come to appreciate in the Mickey Mouse universe.

DIY: Harry Potter Strawberry and Peanut Butter Ice Cream
Empress Eve   |  

Harry Potter Strawberry and Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Universal Studios Orlando announced today their plans for a Diagon Alley expansion for The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter section of their Florida theme park; today also happens to be National Peanut Butter Day, so I thought I’d suggest a way for everyone to celebrate both occasions at once — make your own Harry Potter-themed Strawberry and Peanut Butter Ice Cream!

In the second book, Harry Potter and the Chamber Of Secrets, while Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione are in Diagon Alley shopping for school supplies, they “happily slurped” three large strawberry-and-peanut-butter ice creams. The dessert is currently available at The Three Broomsticks restaurant at Universal’s The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter area, but for those of you who can’t get to the Orlando theme park, you can make your own ice cream at home thanks to the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook and the helpful instructions by Nikki over at the In The Kitchen With Harry Potter blog.
