Disney has just recently launched a new venture in newcasting with a fun new series called “iNSIDE Disney Parks” which basically summarizes some of the biggest news from the Disney Parks Blog into a 7 minute video recap.

While hardcore fans (like those who read this site) won’t find much in the way of news or tidbits in the new series, it is a high energy (without being grating) look into the world of the Disney Parks. Akin to throwback shows like the classic Disney Channel show Walt Disney World Inside Out, it features clips, interviews, and peeks at what’s going on and what’s to come.

It’s unclear how frequently new episodes will be released but the first episode was a fun watch. The topics for the inaugural episode include:

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Awakens at Night – Beginning Memorial Day Weekend, guests can enjoy a plethora of new experiences at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Jennifer Fickley Baker takes us behind the scenes as the Tree of Life prepares for nighttime awakenings.
  • Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters at Disney California Adventure park – Luigi turns the tire storage yard behind his Casa Della Tires into a dance floor. Erin Glover goes for a spin with blog author Michelle Harker for a special look at the attraction.
  • Neel Sethi visits Disney’s Animal Kingdom – For the summer, Discovery River will become the stage for a limited-engagement show inspired by Disney’s hit live-action film “The Jungle Book.” Neel Sethi spent some time talking about the film and enjoying the park.
  • Timelapse of Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – The Tree of Life is the centerpiece of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. From our “Vault” segment, check out the construction of the tree from ground up.
  • New Star Wars-Themed Experiences This Summer – There’s a lot of fun in store for Star Wars fans this summer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Shawn Slater, Sr. Creative Entertainment manager and blog author, shared details and more during this episode.
