The 2010s in Review: Our Favorite Disney Parks Additions

As another decade comes to a close, there’s no denying that the 2010s have brought countless changes for Disney Parks and Resorts. We said goodbye to a few beloved attractions to make way for new lands and attractions. We welcomed new characters into the Parks with opportunities to meet and greet them. And we saw new Resort accommodations open in both Florida’s vacation kingdom and in Hawaii.

With so many changes throughout the past decade, one thing has remained constant. Disney Parks and Resorts continues to provide magical experiences to our guests that help create unforgettable family memories each and every day. It’s unmatched in the travel industry, and we’re proud to be a partner in assisting with the magic!

We asked our Magic Makers® what their top moments of the decade have been, and we’re happy to share those with you!

Our Magic Maker’s Top 10 Disney Parks & Resorts Additions of the 2010s!

Happy New Year! Here’s to another decade of Magical Memories!

Thanksgiving Morning: Who Doesn’t Love A Parade?

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from Off to Neverland Travel®!

For more than 90 years, Thanksgiving morning in the U.S. has been synonymous with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. Several generations have made it a tradition to tune in and see the floats, performances, and of course the giant balloons!

The Walt Disney Company’s roots in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® begin back in 1934 when Walt Disney helped design the first Mickey Mouse balloon. Measuring at 40 feet tall, the hand-painted Mickey Mouse balloon debuted in what was then called the Macy’s Santa Claus Parade. 25 handlers dressed in Mickey and Minnie costumes escorted the Mickey balloon down the parade route. Also in that parade were four smaller balloons that Walt Disney created with the help of Tony Sarg – Pluto, a 34-foot-tall Big Bad Wolf, a 31-foot-tall Little Pig, and a 12 ½-foot-tall Horace Horsecollar.

Since then, many of our favorite Disney characters have appeared in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. This years parade, which starts Thanksgiving morning at 9am Eastern, will be no exception.

Here’s a few fun facts for the Disney Frozen’s Olaf balloon you may catch a glimpse of:

  • Stands 60 feet tall and 32 feet wide
  • Requires 90 handlers to navigate the parade route
  • About 16x the size of real Olaf
  • If the Olaf balloon were made of actual snow, it would be enough to cover the surface of the Matterhorn Bobsleds Mountain at Disneyland® Resort
