Disney Sisters: August 2014

Tangled Returns to El Capitan Theatre This Fall

Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre presents a special engagement of Disney’s “Tangled” Sept. 12 – Oct. 8, 2014. Before the movie, see Sofia from Disney’s “Sofia the First” live on stage plus a special glimpse of Disney Junior’s upcoming “Sofia the First: Curse of Princess Ivy.” Then after the movie, see Rapunzel live on stage followed by Disney’s “Tangled Ever After” short.

“‘Tangled’ introduced some of Disney’s most dynamic and iconic characters with a story that touched audiences around the world,” said Lylle Breier, senior vice president of worldwide special events for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. “This marks the first time the film will be seen at the El Capitan since it premiered in 2010, so we want to make it an event the whole family can enjoy. As Rapunzel says, ‘Best. Day. Ever!’"

Showtimes are at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now, and available at the El Capitan Theatre (6838 Hollywood Blvd.), online at www.elcapitantickets.com, or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6. Special group rates for parties of 20 or more are available by calling 1-818-845-3110. Showtimes subject to change.

On Sundays and Wednesdays at 7 p.m., all El Capitan Theatre guests will enjoy the Spanish language and 3D version of Disney’s “Tangled.”

On select dates, El Capitan guests may also enjoy breakfast and receive a commemorative photo with Rapunzel before the 10 a.m. movie. Seating is limited and reservations are required.

The El Capitan Theatre will also host Tiny Tot Tuesday every Tuesday at 10 a.m. During this special screening of Disney’s “Tangled,” parents and small children can enjoy the movie in a Tiny Tot-friendly way­––complete with lights dimmed (rather than out) and reduced sound levels.

At Sunday’s 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. shows only, El Capitan guests can enhance their “Tangled” experience with “Rapunzel’s Tower Treasures,” which can be pre-ordered for an additional $10, while supplies last.

Disney Club Penguin gets FROZEN!

Do you want to build a snowman puffle?

Disney Club Penguin is bringing the magic of "Disney’s Frozen" to Club Penguin Island from August 21 - September 3

During the Frozen Party, members will be able to dress up like their favorite characters from the film, including Olaf, Sven, Anna, Elsa and Kristoff. Players will start the party by searching for Elsa’s magic snowflakes that are hidden around the island. Once members complete the snowflake quest, they will earn the ability to transform into Olaf or Marshmallow and freeze objects around the island. While players are searching for the snowflakes, Elsa will be constructing her Ice Palace on Club Penguin Island for players to explore. Once the Ice Palace is complete, players will be able to hear a special performance of “Let It Go” when they visit.

During the Frozen Party, Club Penguin and “Disney’s Frozen” fans can:

·         Choose from a number of member-only costumes to dress their penguin characters in, including Olaf, Sven, Anna, Elsa and Kristoff themed outfits

·         Search for seven magic snowflakes that will give members special powers to freeze items around the island. All players can thaw frozen objects by using the heart emote

·         All players can visit Elsa’s Ice Palace igloo to hear a special instrumental performance of “Let it Go,” as well as decorate their own free Ice Palace themed igloo

·         Members will also be able to transform themselves into Marshmallow or Olaf or even create their own snowman Puffle

The Frozen Party will be the first party available on the Club Penguin app since it launched, a key milestone in expanding the online experience available via the app.

Taste of Downtown Disney 2014: A Delicious Recap #CHOCwalk

How often do you get to eat and drink your way through Downtown Disney with friends, while supporting an amazing cause at the same time? Last week we did just that! For the first time, we attended the 7th Annual Taste of Downtown Disney. This incredible night serves as a kick off to the CHOC Children’s Foundation’s annual fundraising drive surrounding the CHOC Walk in the Park.

We had a delightful evening savoring the flavors of the following restaurants:
Catal Restaurant and UVA Bar
Tortilla Jo's
Naples Ristorante E Pizzeria
Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen
House of Blues
Jamba Juice
La Brea Bakery
Wonderground Gallery

All guests were broken up into groups, where we each had a different route for the evening. We went from restaurant to restaurant where the drinks kept flowing, the food and appetizers were being passed  around like crazy - our kind of party! We rarely hang out in the Downtown Disney District, so this was really a unique experience. This would be the ultimate date night or girls night out, we think it's perfect for spending time catching up with family. We made a video to capture what a great event this was. If you've never been, you should definitely think about going next year. It was truly a night to remember!

More than just a fun night out on the town, proceeds benefit CHOC Children's
Become part of the team - sign up for the CHOC Walk!

This year, the CHOC Walk in the Park will be held on October 12, 2014. The 2014 walk covers three miles through Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park where “CHOC Walkers” get a special peek behind the magic before the parks open to the general public. At the end of the 5K walk, the event continues in the resort’s Downtown Disney District where event sponsors, hospital support groups, shops and restaurants have special offers for Walk participants.

In order to help CHOC reach its goal of providing quality healthcare to the region’s two million children, each CHOC Walker must raise a minimum of $50 to participate in the Walk. Everyone can register at http://www.chocwalk.org and receive up-to-date event information at CHOC Foundation on Facebook and Twitter.
