Beginning Monday, June 4 through Friday, August 24, Disney Junior is starting their “Yo Ho, Let’s Go Summer!” programming. What does that mean for your kids? It means new episodes of favorite Disney Junior series premiering all summer long. Plus, Disney Junior will be launching a summer supersite featuring new games and photo activities for kids and their parents. There’s even a chance for some of the photos you submit to be featured on-air!
You can expect new episodes of “Doc McStuffins” and “Jake and the Never Land Pirates, as well as other favorite Disney Junior series including “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Jungle Junction” and “Octonauts”. The “Yo Ho, Let’s Go Summer!” programming event will take place across all Disney Junior digital platforms including Disney Junior On Demand, Mobile and iTunes, as well as an immersive online super-site on DisneyJunior.com featuring new games to “unlock” each week and a printable summer scrapbook. Additionally, new interactive iOS apps for “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and “Jake and the Never Land Pirates”. The new apps are free and available from the iTunes app store.
Also beginning June 4, kids and their parents can log on to DisneyJunior.com/Summer to print out pictures of their favorite Disney Junior characters to take along with them and include in photos of their summer adventures. Parents can then upload the photos of their child with their character for the chance to be seen on Disney Junior. The site will also feature a printable summer scrapbook, with new pages added each week through August 24.
The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally app brings viewing, learning and interaction together into one cohesive, fun-filled iPad experience. Fans 2-7 years old can touch, tap shake, swipe, drag and talk through an entire episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. The activities presented in the “appisode” include valuable counting, critical thinking and problem solving skills. This is the first in a series of Disney Junior Appisodes to be released this year.
Using the Jake’s Never Land Pirate School app, preschoolers can become completely immersed in Never Land, completing pirate-themed challenges presented in Sailing, Music, Flying, and Map and Spyglass classes. Features include: hunting for doubloons on Doubloon Beach; a customizable pirate certificate signed by Jake; and the ability to import a child’s photo into Pixie Dust flying class.
Summer is shaping up to be a lot of fun thanks to Disney Junior and Yo Ho, Let’s Go Summer!
