Disney is keeping three theme parks open for 24 hours on Memorial Day Weekend, the traditional start of the family travel season, to kick off its Monstrous Summer on both coasts.

Disney’s first-ever, three-park all-night party is happening at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando, and Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks in California. The three parks will stay open from 6 a.m., May 24 to 6 a.m., May 25, 2013, local time.

•In Florida, Magic Kingdom Park will feature a “Monsters University” theme where Mike and Sulley of Monsters, Inc and the soon to be released Monsters University will be the Grand Marshals of the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” day parade and make appearances in Tomorrowland.

• There will be extra entertainment throughout the day and night, including characters in their pajamas in Town Square during the late night and early morning, and late-night dance parties in and around the courtyard of Cinderella’s Castle.

• In California, you’ll be able to party the night away at both parks with special entertainment including: a “Monsters University” “TLT Monstrous” Dance Club and Star Wars characters in Tomorrowland, and late-night Character Pajama Party in Mickey’s Toon Town at Disneyland park.

• The new Fantasy Faire Royal Theatre at Disneyland park will become a Royal Dance Hall late at night with a live band and dancing.

• Guests of Disney California Adventure park will find Monstrous photo opportunities with new Monsters University “Dorms” in Hollywood Land and a new Monsters University float leading the Pixar Play Parade.

“Guests can start Memorial Day Weekend with a 24-hour-marathon of memory-making as three parks stay open all day and all night to celebrate the bi-coastal kick-off of our Disney Parks Monstrous Summer,” said WDW president George Kalogridis.

All three parks will feature limited-edition specialty merchandise and food and beverage offerings plus other surprises throughout the entire day.
