Here are 5 things you need to know happening in Florida on Friday, May 24.
1. Disney's Magic Kingdom in Florida is pulling an "All-Nighter"
Disney's Magic Kingdom is kicking off the summer season by keeping its Magic Kingdom theme park open non-stop for 24 hours!
The oversized fun of a 24-hour Disney park "All-Nighter" called for an equally epic announcement, and the huge sphere of Spaceship Earth was transformed from the Disney Parks icon to a Disney-Pixar "Eye-con," becoming a 180-foot-tall, fully animated Mike Wazowski, the loveable green-bodied, one-eyed monster who joins best pal James P. Sullivan ("Sulley") in the prequel to Monsters, Inc., this summer as college students with hopes of becoming Scarers.
The park is open from 6:00 a.m. May 24 to 6:00 a.m. May 25. Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in California will also be open for 24 hours, with special entertainment, including a Monsters University "TLT Monstrous" Dance Club and Star Wars characters in Tomorrowland, and late-night Character Pajama Party in Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland.
All three parks will feature limited-edition specialty merchandise and food and beverage offerings plus other surprises throughout the entire day.
