Hi there! Welcome to our weekly roundup of the most interesting theme park news around the Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando and other theme parks.
Here Are This Week’s Theme Park Highlights:
- Lily is already hopping with excitement to plan her costume, because Disneyland is celebrating Halloween for more days than ever before, from Sept. 7 through Oct. 31. The festivities include Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland Park, and a monster overlay on Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Tickets go on sale for the general public June 12!
- Speaking of the Happiest Place on Earth, your favorite frogs are now offering tickets to the Disneyland Resort! Take a look at our discounts on Disneyland tickets, including Park Hoppers for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Oh, and hop on our California Dreamin' Sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip.
- As though Disney Springs didn't already have a superstar lineup of drinking and dining destinations, they've just added one more to the list! Wine Bar George will celebrate its grand opening this Saturday evening, with normal operating hours beginning on Sunday. This will be the go-to spot for wine-loving frogs and humans alike.
- It's only May, but things are already getting spooky in Orlando. Universal Orlando Resort just announced that Trick 'r Treat will be returning to this year's Halloween Horror Nights as a terrifying new house. Do you think film buff Tad can handle the horror? Boo!
- We mentioned in a recent roundup that Busch Gardens would be bringing back its free beer samples for the summer, and let's just say Leap is LEAPIN' for joy at the news that this perk is headed to SeaWorld Orlando as well. SeaWorld will offer guests 21 and older two complimentary 7-ounce beers beginning today through Sept. 2.
- Calling all Jurassic fans! Universal Studios Hollywood celebrated the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park last weekend with a special party, panels, themed photo-ops and more. Film star Jeff Goldblum even stopped by to make an appearance and recalled his first time seeing a "dinosaur" on set. Tad might be a TINY bit bummed we missed this.
That’s it for the theme park news this week! Have a great weekend.
