from Instagram. Gonna big a long day, but I hear Disney has a few surprises in store. Already Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is open for previews. Wait was 120 minutes shortly after 7AM. We’ll be updating all day and all night over on Facebook. How… Read More »Instapic: Getting ready to #disneyside for 24 hours

Update: added video of how the hashtag was made.
I love this new yearly event of celebrating an entire 24 cycle at Disneyland or the Magic Kingdom. When else can you see the sun rise on a majestic building like Cinderella Castle or take a foggy dawn cruise aboard the Mark Twain? The ‘Disney Day’ events would be great just for those rare opportunities. But Disney being Disney always takes it up a notch.
For this year’s all-night event, everyone is being invited to show their #DisneySide by dressing as their favorite Disney hero or villain. According to Disney both coasts will feature a great lineup 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.
For the 2014 Disney Day head to Magic Kingdom in Florida and Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park in California. The event will run from 6 a.m., May 23 to 6 a.m., May 24, 2014, local time.
Lastly, to announce this event, Disney did something really cute with twitter. They created a 140 character hashtag out of Disney characters. Click the photo to head over to Flickr where you can see the full size version of this image and see if your favorite character is included.
Is your favorite character there? See complete list here. Head below the jump to see a new video with footage from Disney showing all 140 characters and how they came together to make this very unique tweet!
Yes, believe it or not, I’m at the Magic Kingdom for Leap Day 2012. The park is open for 24 hours (6am to 6am) for the One More Disney Day bi-coastal event. I don’t know if I’m going to make it all 24 hours, but you have to be here early, like I was this morning, in order to give it a try.
My main goal is to get as much of the Sorcerers of The Magic Kingdom finished as possible. I’m not the only one with that idea. The queue for Space Mountain was shorter than SotMK for a while this morning.
As I go through the day I’ll come back and add any commentary or breaking news to this thread. I’ll be in the park overnight (at least that’s the plan). If you’re in the park and you see me tweeting as @TheDisneyBlog, please come over and say howdy.
