A Big Announcement Or A Big Let Down
The big announcement is out and the rumors and speculation are true. The Magic Kingdom in Florida and Disneyland in California will indeed be open 24 hours. For one day. February 29th. Which might be great if you happen to be in one of those two areas on that day but if you are like Grumpy, and 99.99999% of Americans (totally made up statistic btw) you won’t be.
So this is just another of the overly hyped Disney announcements that turns out to be a real dud. Remember the last time they announced days ahead of time they were going to announce something really special? Yeah it was hey by the way we are going to project pictures on Cinderella Castle prior to Wishes. I think the whole world let out a collective and disappointed “Really?” In fairness to the Mouse, I checked out that particular show and it is much more impressive than the press release. In fact there are a lot more things going on than pictures of random guests. Check it out for yourself at the bottom of this post. In fact the video of the announcement was much cooler than what was being announced!
One of the two only half way redeeming feature of this announcement is the opportunity for an extra day on Disney’s dime (and they can afford it a lot better than grumpy can!) if you stay between February 26 and March 10, 2012 and are staying three nights or more.
The other redeeming factor is an opportunity to win a free trip to Disney every day in January! Check out the full announcement here.
