Disney Events Happening This Summer 1

Disney has a lot going on this summer and I thought it would be helpful to bring everything to you in one article to review. Movies are being released to theaters and DVD, new comic books, attractions changing, park expansions, Expos, so much to do and I’m not sure summer is going to be long enough!

Cars 3 – June 16

Cruz Ramirez

I know my family is excited to see what’s in store for Lightning McQueen. He’s a little bit older and hopefully a little bit wiser. But can he keep up with the newest generation of race cars with the help of the newest character Cruz Ramirez?

Descendants 2 – July 21

Disney Events Happening This Summer 2

Anyone else still “Rotten to the Core” from Disney’s original movie Descendants? We’ve been excited ever since the announcement from the D23 Expo in 2015 that the sequel was coming. Get your dancing shoes ready!

Summer of Heroes at Disney’s California Adventure – NOW

Grown-Up Groot

The newest Disneyland Resort attraction “Guardian of the Galaxy – Mission : Breakout!” opened over Memorial weekend to rave reviews! You can also meet Star-Lord, Gamora, and Groot at their “Awesome Dance Off”. Last but not least, have you seen Groot-Bread? It’s too cute to eat (almost)!

Classic Space Mountain Returns to Disneyland – NOW

Fantasmic! Returns to Disneyland – This Summer

Returning this summer with new mist screens, state-of-the-art projection technology, and new scenes. I can’t wait to see Aladdin and Jasmine floating on their magic carpet!

Tomorrowland Skyline Lounge at Disneyland – NOW

Disneyland Park

This new lounge in Tomorrowland at Disneyland offers amazing views of the park and firework spectaculars. With its retro decor and desserts this new experience is definitely unique.

Pandora – The World of Avatar at Animal Kingdom – NOW

Disney Events Happening This Summer 1

This new land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is truly not to be missed. The two new attractions, Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey, are spectacular. Have you seen the next level souvenirs available? You can make a personalized Na’vi action figure from your own facial scans! And how can you say no to bringing home your very own banshee?

Beauty and the Beast DVD/Blu-Ray Release – June 6

Adventures by Disney

A Tale as Old as Time will soon be yours to enjoy at home. This box office smash is sure to be a popular purchase in stores. I think Disney did an amazing job re-telling this classic fairy tale. Who’s your favorite character?

Bambi DVD/Blu-Ray Release – June 6

Disney Events Happening This Summer 5

This animated classic follows Bambi from season to season as the young prince learns about life and love. This release will also include a look into Walt’s story meetings and a feature about the man behind the beautiful artwork of the film, Tyrus Wong.

The 2017 D23 Expo is almost here! There is sure to be lots of amazing announcements. We already know that the Opening day for Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios will be revealed here.
