Disney Parks, Experiences and Products in collaboration with Disney On The Yard invited me out to a media luncheon where they brought the Disney magic to me here in ATL!
During the luncheon, I got to learn their latest offerings at their theme parks, aboard their cruise ships, and newest products complete with some fun surprise photo opps and special guests. That included Drum Major Mickey and an appearance from Princess Tiana! I also got filled in on what’s happening with Disney Dreamers Academy and Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, a new attraction coming to Magic Kingdom in Florida and Disneyland in California next year.
And there was more! The event then moved to Disney on the Yard’s “AUC Yard Takeover” — a block party style event for Atlanta Clark University, Spelman College, Morehouse College students and other neighboring schools. Taking place ahead of this year’s annual MEAC/SWAC Challenge football game, I was invited to join in on the fun and mix it up with a DJ, band performances, food trucks and Drum Major Mickey. See all the fun inside….
