Walt Disney World Resorts and Disneyland Resorts presents “Monstrous Summer!”

Monsters University star Mike Wazowski Announced All-Night Parties for Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts

On April 25, 2013, the giant sphere of Spaceship Earth was transformed from Disney Parks icon to DisneyPixar “Eye-con,” Mike Wazowski, who became all of 180 feet tall and fully animated. Mike was joined by none other than Walt Disney’s World President George Kalogridis to share the epic news of the first-ever, bi-coastal, three park all-nighter.

Mike Wazowski, the loveable green-bodied, one-eyed monster joins best pal James P. Sullivan in the prequel to Monsters, Inc.,as college students with hopes of becoming Scarers at Monsters University. Lucky for us, Mike and Sulley will take a break this summer from collegiate life and their Scare studies at Monsters University to host the All-Nighter.
The Magic Kingdom Park in Florida and Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in California will stay open from 6 a.m., May 24 to 6 a.m., May 25, 2013, local time* marking the beginning of a summer of fun inspired by the upcoming Disney-Pixar comedy adventure Monsters University. Park guest should expect screams and giggles of delight from the lineup of thrills and entertainment that promises to make this a day and night to remember for a lifetime.
