Disney Family Culinary Adventure Offered at Contemporary Resort

Disney Family Culinary Adventure at Walt Disney World ResortEver wonder how to make a buttery pasta noodle or fork-tender filet mignon? Beginning July 8, the new Disney Family Culinary Adventure at Disney’s Contemporary Resort whisks guests backstage for a fun, interactive evening that includes plenty of time with the Disney chefs, hands-on cooking and a festive, five-course dinner with beer and wine served in the kitchen by the professional catering staff.

Aimed at guests 9 and older, the evening starts at 5 p.m. with a friendly introduction to the massive catering kitchen. A maximum of 30 guests put on aprons, hats and gloves and are divided into five cooking groups. And every station has a wow technique, from the ease of making homemade butter (equal parts buttermilk and heavy cream) to a fresh pasta with just three ingredients.

Disneyland Calling on Fans to Dress Dapper for July 17 Anniversary

Disneyland 1955Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration is officially underway already at the resort – but the true anniversary falls on July 17, 2015.

In honor of the park’s 60th Anniversary, Disneyland is calling on its fans and visitors to show their 1955 Disney Side by dressing up – or dapper – to commemorate the 1955 opening and the attire that men and women of that day and age wore to the park. Chances are, it’s going to be incredibly hot that day – just like it was 60 years ago as womens’ heels sunk into fresh asphalt on Main Street! There won’t be any heel-sinking happening this year, but as the day turns to night, it should be great fun seeing tons of fans showing up in coats, dresses and fedoras to join in the festivities.

While the park hasn’t disclosed what guests can specifically expect to find on July 17, they have said that there will be special entertainment, along with unique photo locations to commemorate the milestone date.
