Coming Soon: Vampirina!
I must admit that I'm not "up" on all the Disney Jr. characters now that my only child is a college student. When my clients started asking me about Vampirina this past winter, I wasn't even sure if they were talking about an actual Disney character at first. I did my research though and now I know all about Vampirina - and, wow, she is popular with the six and under crowd!
Here's a description from Disney:
"'Vampirina' blends spooky fun, heartfelt storytelling and Broadway-caliber music in stories that follow Vampirina (aka “Vee”) as she faces the joys and trials of being the new kid in town, including making friends and attending a new school in the human world. Along the way, Vee learns that it may be easier to blend in with her peers, but it’s more valuable to celebrate the qualities that make each individual unique."
Disney is usually slow to add characters to the parks (um, hello, where is Moana?), so, I was surprised to find out that Vampirina would be making her debut in not just Walt Disney World, but also in Disneyland this fall.
Vampirina will be arriving at Disneyland® Resort this fall just in time for Halloween. Guests will get to meet her at Disney California Adventure® Park starting Sept. 7, 2018, and Vee will also be making special appearances during the Frightfully Fun Parade at Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland Park, offered select nights Sept. 19-Oct. 31, 2018. Later this year, she will also join the high-energy cast of “Disney Junior Dance Party!”
Starting Sept. 30, 2018, Vampirina will begin making visits to Walt Disney World® Resort as well, where she’ll join her pals for breakfast at Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine. Later this fall at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, Guests will have a chance to meet her in the Animation Courtyard, and of course, she’ll be part of the fun at the all-new “Disney Junior Dance Party!”
