Summer is in full swing in Disney parks around the world, and each location is offering experiences you definitely do not want to miss. Disneyland Resort, California just kicked off their ‘Summer of Heroes’ event with the opening of their new attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT in Disney’s California Adventure park. The Summer of Heroes also features daring missions with some of your favorite Avengers, heroic meet and greets, and even a dance-off featuring an ‘awesome mix’ from Star-Lord. Hong Kong Disneyland will also be starting their Super Hero Summer event on June 14th.


Walt Disney World just set their ‘Blockbuster Summer’ in motion with the opening of their new land Pandora- The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Here you will travel right to the moon of Pandora and be able to experience thrills like riding on a banshee and tasting many of the local flavors. Hollywood Studios also just began showing their ‘The Music of Pixar Live’ show. This show will bring the music of Pixar to life as a live orchestra performs many favorite scores from movies like Monsters Inc, Cars, Toy Story, Up, and Finding Nemo. Various characters from these films will also be making an appearance as well.


Of course, what would a trip to any Disney park be without a nighttime spectacular. The Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World just launched their new fireworks show, ‘Happily Ever After.’ This new show features amazing castle projections of many of your favorite characters and movies, dazzling fireworks, and an humorous and heartwarming story. If you want even castle magic, don’t forget to check out the ‘Once Upon a Time’ projection show, which begins shortly after ‘Happily Ever After’. In this show, Mrs. Potts and Chip tell the stories of many favorite Disney classics. Some new stories will be told in ‘Fantasmic’ this summer at Disneyland Park, California. While you are there, make sure to check out the ‘Main Street Electrical Parade’, before it’s gone on August 20th.


Around the world, international Disney parks will be celebrating summer in their own ways. Tokyo DisneySea will be featuring their ‘Disney Pirates Summer,’ while Tokyo Disneyland is bringing back their nighttime parade ‘Dreamlights,’ which will now feature characters such as Elsa and Anna from ‘Frozen.’ Disneyland Paris is celebrating their 25th anniversary, and you will be able to experience two new shows, a new parade, and a new nighttime show. Shanghai Disney is also preparing to celebrate its first anniversary after welcoming over 10 million people in its first year of operation.
