Disney went Greek for 2 days. The first-of-its-kind event at Disneyland run May 25-27 and offered visitors an array of authentic Greek experiences for both children and adults.
Mickey Mouse was dressed in traditional “fustanella” attire with Minnie dressed to match in a traditional costume from the island of Crete.
Younger guests were trained by none other than Hercules himself, who showed them how to lift weights, toss shot puts, shoot arrows and leap distances. Photos with their hero were a must.
Over at Disney California Adventure Park Greek musicians and dancers showcased Kalamatiano traditional line folkdance.
Greek celebrity chef Argiro Barbarigou hosted a special culinary event for adults. Traditional dishes paired with exceptional Hellenic wines were on the menu.
A great innitiative that I believe would make a most welcome yearly event.
