El Día de los Reyes Magos Honoring the 3 Wise Men
Head to Paradise Gardens for the Epiphany, or twelfth day of Christmas. Celebrated around the world, the holiday is known as El Día de los Reyes Magos in Latin America.
Disney Festival of Holidays marks the occasion with enchanting Latin American traditions the whole family can enjoy.
Peruse finely crafted Magi figures bearing the gifts they brought to Bethlehem, then delight at the sight of children’s shoes, left outside to be magically filled with toys by the Three Kings during the night.
Little ones can have fun coloring themed pictures or designing their own custom crown with sparkling “jewels.”
Let’s take a rare inside look at Disneyland’s Resort Enhancement Warehouse with cast members getting the holiday décor ready to be put up in early November.
Meet the Disneyland Resort Enhancement Team – aka Santa’s Helpers!
And, don’t forget about Christmas at Disneyland!!!
Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!
This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier. Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life. On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.
Now that she’s back, things get wild.
Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental. While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.
While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.
Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.
Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!
