Disney announces theme parks will stay open for 24-hour party

Disney Parks took to Twitter this morning to announce an all-night party coming to the theme parks this May. The announcement started overnight with a tweet that read, "What's the most fun you can have with 140 characters? Check back later this morning for a special #DisneySide announcement." Eight hours later, a picture of a hashtag formed by 140 Disney characters was accompanied by this text: "140 Disney Characters invite you to an All-Night #DisneySide Party on both coasts."

The Rock Your Disney Side 24-hour kickoff to summer will begin at 6:00am on May 23 and end at 6:00am on May 24 at Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, and Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. This will be the third time the parks have stayed open for 24 hours; the first was "One More Disney Day" for Leap Day in 2012 and the second was "Monstrous Summer" over Memorial Day Weekend in 2013. Both events proved to be extremely popular, as this one surely will be as well. The Disney Parks Blog says the party "will feature a cavalcade of events showcasing the good-vs.-evil of classic Disney stories including character meet-and-greets throughout the parks, special entertainment, event merchandise and special food and beverage offerings."

Disney is encouraging guests to show their "Disney Side" by dressing up as their favorite Disney hero or villain. Through March 31, guests will even have a chance to win a coast-to-coast trip to attend the event at both Disney parks. The Rock Your Disney Side event is not a hard-ticketed party; it will be included with your regular park admission.
