We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Disneyholics will have a chance to pull an all-nighter with a party vibe at Disneyland and California Adventure at an upcoming 24-hour event at the theme parks.

It's called "Monstrous Summer," and will take place May 24-25, and include special perks to keep you perked up while you live it up non-stop at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Special entertainment will be on tap, according to Inside the Magic, who report that some of the bonus fun will include:

[A] Monsters University “TLT Monstrous” Dance Club and Star Wars characters in Tomorrowland, and late-night Character Pajama Party in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland. The new Fantasy Faire Royal Theatre at Disneyland will become a Royal Dance Hall late at night with a live band and dancing, and guests of Disney California Adventure will find Monstrous photo opportunities with new Monsters University “Dorms” in Hollywood Land and a new Monsters University float leading the Pixar Play Parade.

The goal of the event is to not only let people enjoy Disneyland in the wee hours (as perhaps they haven't since their "Grad Nite" adventures once upon a time) but also to launch the coming fun the summer months at the theme parks.

"Monstrous Summer" begins at 6 a.m. on May 24, 2013, continuing until the parks close at 6 a.m. on May 25.

Disney is hoping their Anaheim events go off better than a similar event last year on February 29, when "One More Disney Day" found Disneyland guests either shut out or sleeping inside the park.
