If you love Disney as much as my family does, then you’ll be excited to hear about some of the latest Disney Scoop. Local Mom Scoop was invited to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration on Land and Sea in February, it blew our minds just a bit. This invitation only event was a dream come true. I not only spent two days at the Disney World Theme Parks, but also cruised on the Disney Wonder out of Port Canaveral to Castaway Cay, Bahamas.

During my conference, I received exclusive Disney information that I can now share with you. There are so many exciting things happening 2017 you can get some of the scoop here.

‘The Happily Ever After’ Spectacular will debut at the Magic Kingdom on May 12.  This new show will feature the latest fireworks and show characters from some of your favorite movies, including moments from “Moana,” “Brave,” “Big Hero 6,” “Zootopia,” “The Princess & The Frog,” “Aladdin” and many others.

‘Rivers of Light’ Nighttime Show is now at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I was able to see this gorgeous show use water to project colors, lights, and images as floating flowers, tigers, turtles and more moved slowly across the lagoon. It’s an amazing way to unwind after a fabulous day at the park. The show is about 15 minutes, so make sure you check the times on your Disney Experience app and make it part of your itinerary.

‘Pandora – The World of Avatar’ will open May 27th at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This new land is based off the movie “Avatar”. I was able to see a miniature landscape design on my trip of what the world will look like. Guests will be transported to Pandora on the Na’vi River Journey which is the bioluminescent rainforest.  The Avatar Flight of Passage ride will offer guests the jaw-dropping experience of exploring the world of Pandora atop a Banshee.

The ‘Star Wars: Galactic Spectacular’ is a nighttime show happening now at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You will witness a montage of all the Star Wars films projected on the Chinese Theater building. All of your favorite characters along with the iconic music bring you into a laser light and fireworks show that will leave you wanting more. Don’t forget to look out for the Storm Troopers walking around the Park. They may sneak up behind you and wonder if you are with the Resistance.

If you are planning a trip to Disney this summer, don’t miss out on the magic. Your family will many magical moments to remember.
