So... G+ folks, did you hear about this? It's going to be epic!
Like Olaf, have you ever closed your eyes and imagined yourself in another place? In summer, maybe? At Walt Disney World Resort? Or perhaps in the snow-covered kingdom of Arendelle, from Disney’s instant classic, “Frozen.” Why not all three?! After all, the hot and the cold are both so intense, if you put them together it just makes sense! And that’s just what we’re doing as part of an incredible new experience.

4:00 Eastern/1:00 Pacific
 
Join us on April 10th at 1:00pm PT, for a very special Google+ Hangout On Air with Academy Award® winning composer and Disney legend Richard M. Sherman in celebration the 50th anniversary of “it’s a small world,”® the classic Disney Parks attraction that opened as a salute to UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund) and children around the world at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
 
Want a chance to appear in the Hangout as a featured participant? Ask your question in the Q&A app and we may pick you!
 
Feeling a bit camera shy but still have a great question to ask? No problem! You can still ask it in the Q&A app or Tweet it using #SmallWorldHangout - our moderator will be asking Mr. Sherman a selection of the best fan-submitted questions during the Hangout!
 
Fans around the world are also invited to join the global sing-along by visiting www.SmallWorld50.com - a “global hub” of music and harmony where guests may record videos of themselves singing the classic song and create virtual “it’s a small world” dolls to benefit UNICEF.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Disney Parks. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Tonight, the @WaltDisneyWorld Twitter account posted this picture from a "mysterious new float" for the Disney #FestivalofFantasy Parade. There's more to come Friday on +Disney Parks Blog, but in the meantime, any guesses as to what it might be?

Check out the Canadian Holiday Voyageurs, new for Holidays Around the World at Epcot! 
I’m sure many of you would agree that the holiday season is one of the absolute best times of the entire year at Walt Disney World Resort. Much of the fun is already in full swing, from Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park to the Osborn Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. And starting November 29, Holidays Around the World returns for another festive season at Epcot.

This little boy had the most amazing Halloween costume EVER! He is dressed as Mickey Mouse... with his wheelchair decorated as the drum unit in the Main Street Electrical Parade! Complete with lights and music! And waving to people as he goes by! I love this kid. SO COOL!

Sandy Claws is coming to town!
Fans of “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” have even more to grin about this holiday season.

Say "Hello!" to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit!
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was Walt Disney’s first animated star, appearing on screen before even Mickey Mouse. After a long absence, Oswald is back home with his Disney family and has made his official debut at Disney Parks! Arriving just in time for the spring celebrations at Tokyo Disney Resort, Oswald has found a special place to meet his fans and make new friends.
