Give your kitchen a makeover to celebrate Disney’s centennial
Time flies like an elephant. Dumbo, to be precise. This year, The Walt Disney Company turns 100 years old! To celebrate, you can expect everything from new rides to a one-of-a-kind themed fruity cereal. The festivities are scheduled to take place in the U.S., Europe and Latin America throughout 2023. Here are some ways you can show some love for the mouse with the gloves and make your kitchen more Disney-friendly.
What is Disney celebrating?
Disney is the kind of place that’s always celebrating something, which can make it hard to know what the festivities are for. In 2001, for instance, it was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Walt Disney. On Oct. 16, 2023, it will be exactly 100 years since Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney founded The Walt Disney Company.
How is Disney celebrating?
Disney is celebrating its first 100 years in a multitude of ways. Two of the more notable ones include the grand opening of the new attraction Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway on Jan. 27 at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, and the opening of “Disney100: The Exhibition” on Feb.18 at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to Disney, the attraction is “a 15,000-square-foot exhibition that invites guests to step into their favorite Disney stories through innovative and immersive technology throughout 10 galleries.”
How can I celebrate Disney’s centennial every morning?
If you can’t make it to Philadelphia, California or Florida in the next 12 months, you don’t have to miss out. Thanks to Post, you can partake in the magic every morning at the breakfast table with two themed cereals. One has a fruity flavor and features Mickey Mouse head-shaped pieces. The other is a new confetti cake-flavored cereal that will have updated packaging throughout the year.
