Disney has kicked off its now-annual 24-hour events at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland, with the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland parks opening at 6 a.m. local time this morning for a "Rock Your Disney Side" party, where guests are encouraged to come in costume and spend the day and night at what we like to call "Grad Night for Grown-ups."

I attended the first 24-hour party, One More Disney Day, at Disneyland in 2012, and last year's "Monstrous" party at the Walt Disney World. Family obligations are keeping me from the parks this year, but everyone who can't be there in person can follow along online with live video streams from the party.

Here's the live feed from the Magic Kingdom: (Update: The event's over now, so we've taken down the now-dead feed and pasted in a promo video from Disney recapping the opening, from Disneyland, instead.)

These are really more webcams than true live streams, as they offer only video and no sounds. But it's a pretty nice way to kill time on a Friday! Disneyland is offering four cams, which will capture some of the many entertainment events in the parks tonight. Here are the links:

Main Street (Mickey's Soundsational Parade at 6:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. and Magical at 9:25 p.m.)

Cars Land (Sunset and street lighting at approximately 7:40 p.m.)

Rivers of America (Fantasmic! at 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.)

Paradise Pier (World of Color at 9:45 p.m. and 3 a.m.)

If you're at the parties this year, please tweet us your photos at @ThemePark!

I've been told Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom has been closed to capacity.

I always go after the big sale.

The live feed is hypnotic!

I want a hi def video (with sound) that lasts all 24 hours, perhaps loaded on to an Apple TV or some other hard drive-based system. Have it playing on a large 50 inch tv framed by a faux window so I truly feel my home is up at the MK train station. And I'd want one at DLR too.

I would pay good money for that!

I just finished watching the fireworks with my phone playing the perfectly synchronized audio because yes, I am geek like that.

I'm listening to the 'Tron Legacy soundtractk while watching the live feed.

People in Colorado are transfixed!
