Change your fate!

In anticipation for the release of Disneys’ upcoming film from Pixar, Brave, (22nd June USA, 17th August UK) Epcot will play host to the Highland Games! 1st June – 8th July 2012.

Situated on the Rose Walk, your little highlanders and take part in some traditional Scottish games and test their own bravery!

  • Archery
  • Mini caber toss
  • Cake toss
  • Haggis flip
  • Spin the clan wheel
  • Rub a rune stone
  • Arts and crafts

There will also be giveaways, a playground and WiFi access. I thought the WiFi was a bit of a strange thing to boast about but Disney are hoping it will encourage parents to share footage of the games through social media – free advertising! I've yet to see many uploads though and it's been open a couple of days now!
The area is mostly geared towards younger children but I hope there will be something for the slighter older ones to get involved with too. After all, Merida is no toddler!

I really love how they are doing events like this to promote the films, it’s a great way to build excitement for kids and adults a like and if it goes well I can imagine they will be doing more of them in the future. They’re giving it a pretty lengthy run too, and I imagine the week after the film release it’s going to become even more popular! 

The Brave experience is at no additional cost but general park admission is required.

Can you change your fate?

Until next time,
