Walt Disney World is kicking off a Monstrous Summer with massive party set for Memorial Day Weekend.  Magic Kingdom will be open for 24 continuous hours from 6am May 24 until 6am May 25, 2013.  The event marks the beginning of a summer of fun inspired by the upcoming Disney Pixar film Monsters University.

Disney made the announcement in true Disney fashion.  Spaceship Earth at Epcot was transformed into an entirely new “eye-con” featuring a 180-foot tall, fully animated Mike Wazowski, the loveable one-eyed monster who is best pals with Sully.  Both characters will host the 24 hours of fun at the Magic Kingdom which is sure to be a marathon of memory making.

During Disney’s Monstrous Summer which will have a Monsters University theme,  Mike and Sully will  be the Grand Marshals of the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” parade and make appearances in Tomorrowland.  Extra entertainment will be available throughout the day and night, too, with characters in their pajamas found in Town Square in early morning and late night hours.  Plus, there will be late night dance parties around the courtyard of Cinderella’s Castle.  Specialty merchandise, unique food and beverage selections and plenty of surprises will make this summer at Disney a special one.
