New Merchandise On The Horizon For Fall 2014 At Disney Parks

othtra443244One of my favorite articles to write for the Disney Parks Blog gives readers a glimpse into future merchandise development (who wouldn?t want to travel through time?). Introduced in early 2012 , these semi-regular stories are filled with things that make me beyond happy. Here is a look at some of my favorites coming to Disney Parks later this year. I still remember the day that Aaron Babcock, merchandiser for home and decorative goods, showed me the two metal trays pictured above. I did a double take as I thought they were vintage finds from some antique shop. Aaron is the developer behind those amazing items found in Disney Centerpiece at the Marketplace Co-Op in Downtown Disney Marketplace in Florida. He stepped up his game with these trays that will be placed next to my vintage EPCOT Center trays from the early 1980s. Look for them this fall at the respective Resort destinations in California and Florida . I think I found check this out the next two shirts that I will be getting for my fiancée and me. They were inspired by the popular ?I?ll Be Your? Mickey and Minnie companion T-shirts released in 2012 . The shirts are coming this October to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. I fell out of my chair when I saw the new Vinylmation ? Eachz set coming this fall featuring Mabel from the hit Disney XD show ?Gravity Falls.? I wasn?t surprised to learn that Thomas Scott was the Disney Design Group artist behind these limited edition figures. Thomas, who once dressed up as the character Uncle Stan for Halloween, recommended I watch the show. I?m now hooked and can?t wait for season two, which debuts on Disney Channel on August 1 at 9:00 p.m. Presented in a mystery box (how fitting), the figure on the left will be more common to find (edition size 1,350), while the figure on the right is more rare (edition size 150). Finally, I spotted these adorable new Disney Villains baby plush. Maleficent will be joined by baby Cruella de Vil this November, while Ursula will be released early next year. Which things are you most excited to see? Please share in the comments below. New Merchandise on the Horizon for Fall 2014 at Disney Parks by Steven Miller: Originally posted on the Disney Parks Blog

Disney World surprise doesn't go quite as planned, video posted on YouTube | abc7news.com

(YouTube) Tuesday, July 08, 2014 Disney World is supposed to be the happiest place on Earth, but one family's reaction from their son wasn't quite what they were expecting when they told him he was going there. The family posted a video showing the adorable reaction on YouTube . The description reads: "My wife and I decided to completely surprise our kids with a trip to Disney World. We packed up the car, then woke the kids up and put them in the car." It only takes a moment or so for their daughter to realize where they are going. She's excited, but her little brother starts bawling. The story does have a happy ending. The family says the little boy ended up having a great time at Disney World and is asking to go back. Disney is the parent company of KTRK-TV.

Disneyland And Walt Disney World Fans Show Their Disney Sidewalks On Instagram

eelaineeee In late May, we kicked off summer at Disney Parks with Rock Your Disney Side 24-hour event . As part of the event here at the Disneyland Resort , we featured Disney California Adventure park-inspired sidewalk art by featured artist Noah to launch our Show Your Disney Sidewalk campaign on Instagram. For the past six weeks, followers of the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Instagram accounts were encouraged to show their Disney Side through sidewalk art, and some of the results were breathtaking. Show Your Disney Sidewalk has wrapped up, but I wanted to blog url share some of the amazing pieces we saw. @egreen2003 posted this lovely scene of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse enjoying fireworks. In this wonderfully detailed piece, @mantia and @grafera pay tribute to a favorite summertime Disney Parks treat. The ?Partners? statue is depicted in silhouette against fireworks ? and @victoria_rangel_ even included a hidden Mickey! I love the simplicity of this piece by @eelaineee, showing that less is sometimes more when depicting a Disney Parks icon. Did you Show Your Disney Sidewalk on Instagram this summer?

Katy Perry's Weird Weekend: Disney World Pizza Parties, 'Seinfeld' Roller Coasters & Off-Duty Santas - MTV

Every day I get to work ... I see so many of the same faces that I spent my entire childhood with. ... Its like youre re-creating your childhood. Not many people get to do that. Girl Meets World largely follows the couples 12-year-old daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard), and her best friend, Maya, the way its predecessor focused on Cory and best friend, Shawn (Rider Strong). Blanchard describes Riley as Corys kid, who will have countless resemblances to her TV dad. Word traveled fast among pop culture enthusiasts and fans of the original series after Girl Meets World was announced. With the attention came scrutiny. Boy Meets World was one of those shows people grew up with and felt very connected to, Savage said.

The newest addition to the theme park is expected to be a major hit this year, given the films smashing success: This spring, the movie edged past Toy Story 3 to become officially recognized as the highest-grossing animated film in history by Guinness World Records. And Disney is capitalizing on the films huge popularity by bringing the characters to life and recreating parts of the fairytale kingdom Arendelle in Frozen Summer Fun Live! at Hollywood Studios. Every day from July 5 until September 1, Princess Anna and Queen Elsa will make a royal entrance in a horse-drawn sleigh, in a procession down Hollywood Boulevard along with their posse of Frozen friends. Visitors will also be able to participate in a sing-along and belt out some of the most popular songs from the film soundtrack during a 20-minute show that includes an abbreviated retelling of the story with projections, lighting and special effects. To cool off from the summer sun, visitors can take up ice skating lessons at the winter wonderland Frozen Funland, while a daily dance party will also invite fans to cut a rug to DJ-spun medleys of the soundtrack. And to cap off the Frozen-themed day, the park will also explode in a nightly fireworks show at 9:45 pm, with projections of snow and ice images above Hollywood Blvd. Earlier this spring, a husband-wife duo uploaded a YouTube video of themselves lip resource synching to a Frozen song with such uncanny timing and convincing gestures, its since been viewed more than 15 million times. If youre not afraid of being stuck with an ear worm all day, the video can be viewed at http://bit.ly/1fs6hsG . The Frozen Summer Fun Premium Package offers reserved viewing and cost $59 for adults and $34 for kids. For more info visit http://bit.ly/1otRsNC .

Apple Iwatch And Disney - Business Insider

Just scan your wristband and enter a PIN. Tired of scrambling for your hotel key? Simply tap the wristband to your door. The wristband is connected to a credit card and is capable of replacing your wallet, keys, and theme park tickets throughout Disney's sprawling campus. It essentially acts as a digital ID that you wear around your wrist. The sensors within the band are also contextually aware and can detect where you are. Here's how Bajarin described one experience: But these RFID bands also had proximity features so when we were on a ride like Splash Mountain where they take a picture of you as you start the downward slide, it automatically sensed from our bands we were on the ride and that picture was automatically sent to our Disney picture site as well. Bajarin notes this mobile identity aspect could be crucial for the success of the iWatch.

Scientists Find Experimental Support For Killer Whales' Ability To Learn New Dialects

Scientists Find Experimental Support for Killer Whales' Ability to Learn New Dialects by Staff Comments A team of scientists from Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute (HSWRI) and SeaWorld San Diego has provided the strongest evidence yet that killer whale dialects are learned. The study found that juvenile male killer universal studios orlando whales are capable of learning new call types when they undergo a change in social association. Killer whales have vocal repertoires that scientists call ?dialects? because they?re composed of calls unique to particular social groups. Discovering how whales develop these dialects hasn't been possible in the wild because of the inherent challenges in tracking an individual whale?s vocalizations and behavior regularly and for extended periods of time. The HSWRI study took advantage of the unique habitat at SeaWorld that was outfitted with multichannel video and eight hydrophones. This environment allowed the researchers to record and analyze the calls made by individual whales over a five-year period. Learning whether social association affects the calls of killer whales sheds important light on how wild populations of whales interact. Scientists still don?t know if and how populations of killer whales can merge. The data from this study give clues about how that might occur.

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Opening At Walt Disney World : People.com

Heigh-Ho! Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Opening at Walt Disney World| Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Walt Disney World, Walt Disney The boys now have a ride of their own. Walt Disney World 's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train officially opened in Orlando, Florida, Friday morning as the jewel in the crown of the Magic Kingdom's recent expansion, New Fantasyland . Incorporating the major thematic elements of the now-shuttered dark-ride staple Snow White's Scary Adventures with what Disney Imagineers call a "family-friendly" roller-coaster, the attraction's 20-passenger trains slow down inside a dark cavern to provide a mirthful glimpse of the popular Disney characters at work, then speeds into gear to zip through their well-landscaped and hilly village. On the intensity scale, the Mine Train measures closer to The Barnstormer than to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, with gentle curves and the tallest hill 41 feet high. Meanwhile, the visual experience inside the mine is enhanced by LED-lit "gems" that literally allow the Audio-Animatronic Dopey to have stars in his eyes. Other details include an exact replica of their cottage, with an evil visitor outside the door. The attraction will be fully opened to the public on May 28. Sleepy Does What Sleepy Does "This is the first time we've done a full 3D design and delivery process on any of our Audio-Animatronic figures," said Ethan Reed of Walt Disney Imagineering, which went back to the source material, Walt Disney's first full-length animated feature, 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, for inspiration. "There's so much new technology out there, we can really make these characters look like they jumped off the screen," Reed said. Disney World's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Matt Stroshane Another new technology just rolled out at Disney World is MyMagic+, a personalized wristband device that guests can use as their hotel-room key, park admission and http://elvirechantal.blog.com/ Fast Pass ticket, credit card for purchases, and, in conjunction with the My Disney Experience smartphone app, schedule planner for the entire trip.

Disney Channel ?Girl Meets World? Premieres Tonight | Disney Dreaming

So if California Grill is so unforgettable, why is it that I put Artist Point as my number one choice, you may ask? There's a rather simple answer. When I think about meals that I just can't wait to have in anticipation of a trip to Walt Disney World, Artist Point comes to mind first. The food blows me away every time. The wine list does the same. The service is always on point. Everything is just awesome. A seat by the window overlooking the stream that flows down through the main courtyard is all I need to instantly relax me and prepare me for the great meal that I know is on it's way. Take your pick. The artisanal cheese plate is always a must to start.

Walt Disney World visitors can skip the front desk during Direct to Room check-in test (World View) by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix

Prior to arrival, participants must use Disney's online resort check-in system and pay for any outstanding balance due on their reservation. In addition, participants have up to one hour before their anticipated arrival time to leave a credit card on file in the check-in process to cover any room charges. Once participants complete this check-in process, they just wait for an e-mail and/or text message (depending on the notification preferences set up during check-in) that notifies them that their room is ready, and provides the room number. The MagicBand device acts as the room key, so there is no need to go to the hotel lobby before heading to the room. If participants opt to receive an e-mail notification, the message includes a copy of the resort map marked with room number maps. Those who opt only for text message notifications receive a message that says simply, "Your room number XXXX is ready," and invites them to go directly to their room. I've been told that a future upgrade of the system will allow Disney cast members monitoring the notification system to send a resort map to a guest on request, which will likely prove handy for guests who opt only for text alerts and cannot find their room based on number alone. Although this new system saves a bit time at the very start of the trip, there are still reasons you may want to visit the front desk even if you are eligible for Direct to Room check-in.
