BREAKING NEWS - Disney Parks To Announce Monstrous Summer All-Nighter, Theme Parks Open Again for 24 Hours!
When we wrote our Wrap-up report on the craziness that was One More Disney Day last year, we left a question of whether or not we’d see this type of event again.
All good things considered, the 24-hour operations at Disney Parks on both US coasts brought a lot of problems, especially at Disneyland. Sure, you’ve read elsewhere that park management was a nightmare and those trying to get in later in the evening couldn’t even park, but the fact of the matter is is that people came and it was a hit…so why not try it all again?
So let’s try it again.
In a few hours/minutes, Disney Parks execs in Florida will be announcing the next 24-hour “party” happening at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Being called a “Monstrous Summer All-Nighter,” guests will be able to experience 24 hours of magic yet again at Magic Kingdom park in Walt Disney World and both Disneyland Park AND Disney California Adventure Park at the Disneyland Resort beginning Friday, May 24 until Saturday, May 25.
The event will kickoff the Disney Parks’ summer promotion (in conjunction with Limited Time Magic) called “Monstrous Summer,” the theme of which highlights the more magical (and family-friendly) side of college as seen in Pixar’s upcoming prequel film “Monsters University” which hits theaters on June 21. Oh, and hopefully makes you feel like you’ll be making a “monstrous” amount of memories this summer at a Disney Park too!
So, are you planning on attending the All-Nighter? Some words of advice -
- If you plan on being one of the first people to walk through the gates like we did for One More Disney Day, then expect to camp out outside your Disney Park of choice the night of May 23. Disneyland and DCA will open at 6 AM the morning of May 24.
- If you plan on joining in on the festivities sometime during the 24-hour period, then be sure to bring a lot of patience and happy songs with you in your car as there might be a lot of people around you who might have the same idea.

And you can be sure that we’ll be there covering it as well!
