Three Kings Day entertainment includes your favorite Disney characters in festive, colorful costumes, and plenty of holiday photo opportunities.

Rosca de Reyes cake – yummy!

For a sweet treat, try the cake known as Rosca de Reyes—there could even be a tiny toy hidden inside!

[Rosca de Reyes (King’s Ring) is a Latin American pastry traditionally eaten to celebrate Epiphany.  For decoration, figs, quinces, cherries or dried and candied fruits are used, sort of like a Spanish fruit cake.

It is traditionally eaten on January 6th, during the celebration of the Día de Reyes (literally “Kings’ Day”), which commemorates the arrival of the three Magi or Wise Men.]

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
