This has been such a sad week for Orlando and Disney World. I was there for a short trip this weekend and felt so helpless, knowing such tragedy was so close to me, and not knowing how to help. One way to help now is by supporting Orlando through the One Orlando Fund (read here).
I have had a few things come across my inbox since last time, that I thought I’d share.
Tonight at 8pm on the Disney Channel, Disney Jr & Disney XD they will be showing the “Grand Opening Celebration of Shanghai Disney Resort”. I already have my DVR set – but if you don’t – it will also be aired tomorrow, June 17, 2016 at 10pm on the Freeform channel (formerly ABC Family). Disney Parks Blog talks about it here.
While you’re waiting to watch the show tonight, you can take a look at these pictures posted by Travel & Leisure of never before seen pictures from Shanghai Disney (click here).
I was fortunate to have the chance to see Hamilton on Broadway this past December and it truly is as amazing as you’ve heard (and this is coming from someone with a very critical musical theater eye – it takes A LOT to impress me). Well, Disney’s upcoming film “Moana” will have some of Hamilton’s talent! Lin-Manuel Miranda is composing music for the film and Phillipa Soo has just been cast. “Moana” is set to open in November this year. You can read more about this here.
I’m still waiting to plan my trip across the country to visit Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure…for now I will have to live through articles like this – the new Frozen show looks AMAZING! You can read about it here. The special effects sound incredible (think Aurora Borealis curtains and seemless Let it Go dress transformation).
And lastly – here’s an auction I wish I had won the lottery to be able to buy something from. Read here about the massive Disney Auction!
I’ll be sure to keep sorting through the Disney news to bring you the latest from My Disney Desktop!
