You’ve probably heard by now that Disney’s Ultimate Princess Celebration is in full swing. So, as part of the exciting celebrations, I am delighted to announce that we will launch the first-ever World Princess Week next week! “What does that mean?” you may wonder. That is, we will be giving the most recent information on all new goods, digital material, special services from our parks and resorts, and other surprises! Here’s a rundown of how you may participate in the festivities next week:
Walt Disney World Resort
During the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival, a new Tiana-themed playground will be available beginning August 23! This playground is an awesome offering that guests can enjoy during Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary celebration. There will also be some sumptuous themed food and beverage offerings throughout Walt Disney World Resort all week long, inspired by the 14 Disney princesses and “Frozen” queens (check them all out here). Plan a trip to Disney Springs Marketplace on August 26 with your own tiny princesses, who will be invited to participate in a Princess Promenade at the AdventHealth Waterside Stage. Costumes are encouraged, and attendees will enjoy a princess-themed entertainment performance from 2-6 p.m. on a one-day-only basis.
While strolling around Disney Springs, make sure to look for the newest Princess-inspired products and take a photo in front of the three art expression walls related to the “Tales of Courage and Kindness” storybook series. Finally, Movies Under the Stars at Walt Disney World Resorts will showcase a selection of Disney Princess films, allowing you to immerse yourself in your favorite fairy tales with some of your favorite characters.
On Aug. 26, Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures will return to Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at Disneyland Resort… and bookings are now open! This beautiful event is for princes and princesses of all ages, and I am THRILLED that it is returning… Not only because I’ve been missing those chocolate princess cake pops.
Also, if you haven’t checked out the upgraded Snow White’s Enchanted Wish’s new cutting-edge audio and visual technologies, now is the time! This freshly updated experience at Disneyland park presents the story of Snow White in a new way, and it remains the park’s sole ride-through Princess attraction. While you’re there, say hello to Queens Anna and Elsa as they travel on a float along Main Street, United States of America, and on to “it’s a small world.” As they march by, listen to the music from “Frozen”!
Stop into California Sole in Downtown Disney District to purchase your Disney Princess Havaianas before treating yourself to a Raspberry Cream Macaron from Kayla’s Cake, the perfect sweet for any prince or princess.
Stop by The LEGO Store in Downtown Disney District to see the new Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, and Tiana’s Story Book Adventure, a LEGO set that includes a Princess Storybook.
While you’re at Downtown Disney District, don’t miss the picture opportunity with Moana artwork from the “Tales of Courage and Kindness” storybook series.
The Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend races will be available for purchase on August 24. The weekend offers competitions for all skill levels, coveted royal medals, and Disney entertainment while taking place within the enchantment of the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary celebration. Be inspired by some of your favorite Disney characters to reach new heights of bravery and compassion, propelling you triumphantly to the finish line that ends happily ever after!
At Disneyland Paris, you’ll find entertainment, delectable delicacies, and unexpected surprises with Disney princesses like Jasmine, Merida, and “Frozen” monarchs Anna and Elsa! New unique Selfie Spots and Magic Shots will be available to experience and record amazing royal memories. In addition, the resort will feature a unique selection of goods commemorating World Princess Week in a variety of stores and eateries. For additional information, go to disneylandparis.com.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort
Some of your favorite Disney Princess heroes are expected to appear at Hong Kong Disneyland. From August 23 to August 29, you may also hear Brandy, a global superstar and Grammy Award-winning music artist, perform the brand-new Ultimate Princess Celebration song “Starting Now.” During World Princess Week at Hong Kong Disneyland, you’ll be singing along before the song is through!!
Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa
Wave “aloha” to Moana, who returned to the islands just a few months ago at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii. While you’re there, get a Moana Dole Whip Fresh Fruit Sundae. DOLE Whip pineapple is served in a crispy waffle bowl, topped with fresh pineapple, sprinkles, and a white chocolate picture of Moana. The word “delicious” can not even begin to describe this one! Little ‘Opihi’s also offers a Chocolate Dipped Banana with Macadamia Nuts with a white chocolate picture of Moana. Yum!
New Courage and Kindness Products and Digital Offerings
In line with the spirit of the occasion, a variety of new goods from businesses such as Enchanted Disney Fine Jewelry, Lokai, and Love Your Melon will be released during World Princess Week, all of which stress compassion via charity giving. Additional items from Hasbro, JAKKS Pacific, the LEGO Group, Funko, ColourPop Cosmetics, and others will be available in stores across the world.
In other Princess news, shopDisney’s Ultimate Princess Celebration Hotline will reopen on August 23 with all-new recorded messages from five Disney Princess characters who can be reached by dialing 1-877-70-DISNEY and two “Frozen” queens, Anna and Elsa, who can only be heard by visiting shopDisney.com.
To cap off the week-long celebration, Disney Channel will premiere a brand-new music special, “Disney Princess Remixed – An Ultimate Princess Celebration,” on Friday, Aug. 27 (7:30 p.m. EDT/PDT). Through reinvented renditions of their classic songs, the half-hour program will highlight the powerful qualities of Disney princesses and “Frozen” queens. Brandy, a GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist, will also premiere her music video for “Starting Now.” The same day, “Disney Princess Remixed – An Ultimate Princess Celebration” will be accessible on Disney+ in certain regions, including the United States.
