24 hour event


Good evening Disney Gossip Addicts! I see my catchy title and photo has brought you here to read my latest Disney Gossip.

Chip and I have been getting tons of emails asking us when the Disney 24 hour event is this year. With the state of the parks is Disney even going to have one this year? I know Disneyland is going to be gutted for Star Wars Land and don’t even get me started on Hollywood Studios.

Typically news for the 24 hour events can be released anytime between Jan through April.

2016-01-13 14.58.05

While I was doing some research  I stumbled across something interesting on the Disney World App. Just for fun I put in the date February 29th and looked up Dining Reservations in the Magic Kingdom. The photos above show a 24 hour event in the Magic Kingdom. Does it seem we have stumbled across some secret information? Doubtful and let me tell you why.

I also tried several other days and it seems Disney has left the 24 hour event on the app every day. Insert “Wah Wah” sound effect. It is hard to say if this is leftover code from last year or if it is fresh for 2015.




2016 Crowd Calendar PDF

Last night Chip released his crowd calendar for 2016 and while late as always I did notice he added red for the time around Leap Year. (Don’t get me started on the other dates he messed up on, I am kidding Mamma loves you) Does Chip know something I don’t? Doubtful.

Just for fun I checked over park hours for Disney World.

The February or May calendar shows nothing for Leap Day or Memorial Day. Notice the dates of when they were last updated? Could it be that Disney is waiting to add those dates till later? Or could it be there is a 3rd option??? Insert Judi Dench voice over from Spaceship Earth.

With everyone so focused on those 2 dates I think I might have stumbled across a 3rd option. Last night Disney shared with us the opening of the all new Shanghai Disney Resort, June 16th 2016. That would make for an excellent date to celebrate a 24 hour event. 6-16-16. All the kids are out of school, it is after the current Disney World Promotion, and it coincides with a park grand opening.

We already missed the window on January 1st for a Leap Day Party but there is still plenty of time to announce a June Event.

I also submit to you since Disney has done a Movie themed party back in 2013 there is also another movie that could tie into the event in June and that is the June 17th release of Finding Dory!

So if I were to bet on when the Disney 24 Hour event is this year I would put my money on June 2016. Keep in mind I have no basis of fact and this is just conjecture for now, so take it with a grain of salt.

Let me know when you think the 24 hour event will be this year in the comment box below.

Anonymouse searches the internet, annoys cast members, and wouldn’t think twice about using a Ouija board to find you the freshest Disney Gossip. Some of what she’ll report is confirmed, some is based on information from the rumor mill, and some, frankly, she just read on the bathroom wall in Fantasyland. So take it with a grain of salt and have fun!
