Welcome to the D.P. Perfect 5. Each week we round up five things that happened in the Disneyverse that qualify as “a good thing.” They can be pieces of uplifting news, stories you share with us, or anything that transpired in the last week that made us smile.
AT HOME WITH OLAF
Someone pass us the tissues, please? The Walt Disney Animation Studios set out to tug at our heartstrings and MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. In the just dropped video, Olaf serenades us with a beautiful new ballad, “I Am With You,” while a montage of Disney classic film clips plays. Get ready for the happy/sad tears.
HALFWAY TO HALLOWEEN
We got ourselves a challenge, friends! Disney Parks Blog kindly reminded us that May 15th is halfway to Halloween. The fun news was celebrated with a fresh crop of Halloween pictures snapped at Disney Parks all over the globe. The festivities call for us to dress up in costume at home and share photos on social media with the tag #Halfway2Halloween. We are SO in!
SHANGHAI DISNEY REOPENS
News poured in from all over the globe as Shanghai Disneyland opened its gates. Our hearts filled with warm gooey goodness when we saw our favorite characters welcoming back happy park goers. We think Vincent from Twitter said it pretty darn well here:
It’s not about being able to ride Space Mountain again. It’s about having the hope that things will be alright, that we’ll get out of this dark time and be able to be happy and celebrate life once more. This is a historic moment and I’m so happy it’s here. ❤️#ShanghaiDisneyland https://t.co/tGrnSqcFst

HAMILTON COMes TO DISNEY+
Broadway junkies all around the world exclaimed with joy when news broke of Hamilton’s forthcoming addition to DisneyPlus. Just in time for the 4th of July, the hit show will make its first appearance off the stage. We can’t wait to rap along at home!
BRING ON THE OFFICIAL DISNEY CARBS!
At Disney Perfection, we love creating our own “taste-alike” dishes. Still, we’re always over the moon when Disney shares an official recipe! And does it get any better than Tonga Toast at home? Heck no. We are diving headfirst into a stack of this A+ French Toast this weekend. We’ll save the calorie counting for Monday.
