Rose Parade moments remembered:


 Nearly 10 years ago, on January 1, 2005, Mickey Mouse served as the grand marshal of the Rose Parade, part of Disney's long-standing relationship with the annual parade in Pasadena, California.

 That relationship began in 1938 when characters from the newly premiered "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" were prominently featured in the parade. In 1966, Walt Disney served as grand marshal: many years later, in 2000, Roy E. Disney, Walt's nephew and the head of Disney Animation, served in that role. Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Entertainment representatives have served as float judges numerous times throughout the years.

 Disney is often recognized for presenting some of the most creative parade floats. In 2004, the Disneyland Resort presented "A Sudden Drop in Pitch"- at the time the tallest float in Rose Parade history at 110 feet- inspired by The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction, which opened a few months later. In 2005, the resort's 50th anniversary was celebrated with a castle float titled "The Happiest Celebration on Earth." The following year, Disney created one of the longest floats in Rose Parade history(at 150 feet), which celebrated Disney Parks around the world. And in 2013, "Destination: Cars Land" celebrated the opening of the new land in Disney California Adventure Park.

The 2015 Rose Parade will be broadcast on ABC on January 1...........Dr Lee

Maximize your Main Entrance Pass with MYMAGIC+ at Walt Disney World Resort:



 If you've been to the Walt Disney World Resort recently, you know that MYMAGIC+ offers Guests new and innovative ways to customize their visit like never before.

 Now, this new magic is extended to every Disney Cast Member and employee with a theme park Main Entrance Pass. That includes the ability to make FastPass+ selections in advance of your visit, plus use a MagicBand in place of your Main Entrance Pass at the theme parks.

 It all starts when you visit MyDisneyExperience.com, create a profile and link your Main Entrance Pass to your profile. You don't need to do this now-those enhancements are optional-but be sure to do it before your next Walt Disney World visit so that you can maximize your planning abilities. Plus, when you link a hotel reservation to My Disney Experience, you'll have access to an extended FastPass+ selection window plus the opportunity to customize MagicBands for each member of your travel party.

The other thing you'll need is a set of reusable Guest Passes, which are used to admit other Guests as well as redeem any FastPass+ selections you make for them in advance. Request them at www.disneyurl/mainentrancepassreplacements, or pick them up once in Florida at a Guest Relations window.

Then and Now:


 Celebrating the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort:

 The holidays have always been a special time at the Disneyland Resort with treasured traditions dating back to the first "Christmas at Disneyland" festival in 1955. While today's holiday celebrations look very different from those early years, there's one thing that remains unchanged: the warmth and joy of the season that cast Members share with every Guest.

 Here's a look at some of those holiday traditions- then and now:

HOLIDAY PARADE...

 THEN: The first holiday parade took place Nov.24, 1955, kicking off the first annual "Christmas at Disneyland" festival. Led by Walt Disney and actor Fess Parker(who played Davey Crockett on TV), the parade featured traditional holiday elements and live animals, including camels, llamas-even an ostrich.

NOW: This tradition continues with "A Christmas Fantasy" parade in Disneyland Park, which has delighted Guests since 1995, and this year welcomes Anna And Elsa from "Frozen" into its cast.


STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT:

 On December 17,1961, a 24-foot Christmas star was fixed atop the 14-story-high Matterhorn mountain. The star would become a holiday tradition through 1972.


CANDLELIGHT:

 THEN:  The practice of inviting local choirs to sing during the holidays began in 1955 on the Main Street, U.S.A., bandstand, renamed the "Christmas Bowl." By 1958, the event had evolved into the first Candlelight Ceremony and Processional with 16 choirs performing at the base of Sleeping Beauty Castle. In1960, a celebrity narrator was added to read the story of Christmas. Over the years, they included Cary Grant, John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart.

NOW: The Candlelight Ceremony and Processional will take place December 6 and 7 this year in Town Square with hundreds of singers from choirs throughout Southern California, including our very own Cast choir.

HOLIDAYS OVERLAYS:

THEN: In 1984, the popular "Country Bear Jamboree" in Disneyland Park became the first attraction to receive a holiday makeover. "Country  Bear Christmas Special" featured festive new backdrops, holiday décor and new script.

NOW: Although "Country Bear Christmas Special" ended with the closure of the Country Baer Playhouse in 2001, Guests today enjoy "it's a small world"  Holiday (added in 1997), Haunted Mansion (added in 2001), and Jungle Cruise, a yuletide spin on Jungle Cruise added just last year.


DISNEY CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE PARK:


THEN: The precursor to "World of Color," "Luminaria" was a holiday themed nighttime show at Paradise Bay. Taking place during the 2001 season, fountains, projections and fireworks showcased the sights and sounds of the holidays.

NOW: Disney California Adventure Park is filled with holiday fun-from "World of Color-Winter Dreams" to the Disney "Viva Navidad!" celebration in Paradise Gardens. Cars Land features homespun holiday décor, while Buena Vista Street's trimmings represent a nod to the 1920s era, culminating in a dazzling 50-foot Christmas tree in Carthay Circle.


CHRISTMAS EVE:

THEN: In 1955, strings of garland framed Main Street, U.S.A., with a wreath in every window, a beautiful tree aglow in Town Square. As one family walked through the nearly empty park, Jack Lindquist (the man who would become Disneyland's first president) overheard a little girl say, "Mom, this really was better than having Santa Claus.: It was then, Jack recalls, he knew that Disneyland was a truly magical place.

"To me this one brief moment proved to be my most meaningful memory at the park because it symbolized what we mean to people," Jack wrote in his 2010 memoir, "In Service to The Mouse." "We are not going to save the world, but if we can make people that happy for a few hours or for a day, then we are doing something worthwhile."

NOW: At no time  is the happiness we create as a resort more heartfelt than it is during the holidays. The magic that each Cast Member creates for every Guest, every time is our greatest-and most treasured-tradition.

CANDLELIGHT...gets ready to shine:



 On the evenings of Dec.6 and 7, Town Square at Disneyland Park will undergo a transformation that is sure to put everyone in the holiday spirit. Members of the Candlelight choir- forming a "living Christmas tree"- will once again shine for the beloved Candlelight Processional and Ceremony.


 In 1958, Walt Disney began Candlelight as a way to show his gratitude to the local community. For more than 50 years, the Candlelight Choir, comprised of Cast Members and community choirs, has sung classical hymns accompanied by the Disneyland Orchestra, while a celebrity guest narrator reads the story of "The First Christmas."


Mid 90's, I was part of the Candlelight Choir, sang for 4 or 5 years....Dr Lee

25 years ago, 'The Little Mermaid'.....


 On Nov.17,1989, Disney's "The Little Mermaid" premiered in theaters, charming audiences with the tale of a young mermaid who dreams of life on land as a human. Based on a Danish fairy tale first published in 1837, the animated movie quickly gained popularity with the score by Alan Menken, who won an Academy Award for best Original Music Score.

 This animated classic has inspired many past and current offerings at the Disneyland Resort. Ariel's Grotto first opened in 1996 at the former site of the Monsanto House of the future in Disneyland Park, allowing Guests to take photos with Ariel at her throne. The location was renamed Triton's Gardens in 2001 when the Ariel's Grotto character dining location opened in Disney California Adventure Park. (In 2008, Triton's Gardens was rethemed to Pixie Hollow.) Ariel continues to greet Guests at Ariel's Grotto restaurant and Fantasy Faire.

 During the recent expansion of Disney California Adventure Park, Ariel got her own attraction, The Little Mermaid- Ariel's Undersea Adventure. And Guests can also see their favorite undersea friends in "Fantasmic", Mickey & the Magical Map," "World of Color" and Mickey's Soundsational Parade."

When my daughters were young, they Loved Ariel and we even had 2 cats, Ariel and Eric....Dr Lee

Happy Holidays to everyone!!!!!

 It's that time of year to remember, ponder and look forward to a new year.This past year was not bad,however, just want to wish all those who read this,Happy Holidays and Happy New Year......

'Walt Disney's Disneyland' premieres.....

Sixty years ago the first "Walt Disney's Disneyland" episode invited eager viewers to learn more about the new theme park under construction and enjoy stories based on its themed "realms" (as Walt initially referred to the lands).

The show was part of a deal that Walt and his brother Roy struck with ABC to help finance Disneyland. In exchange for financial backing, the brothers agreed to produce Disney programming for the network. Walt took this opportunity to not only create wonderful themed stories that he could tie in to the lands being built in the park but also to give viewers a sneak peek of the fun that would await them. True Life adventures, Man in Space, Davy Crockett and The Mickey Mouse Club would provide much of the story background for Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Frontierland and Fantasyland, respectively.

 "We hope that through our television show that you will join us and take part in the building of Disneyland and that you will find here a place of knowledge and happiness," Walt said in the premiere episode Oct. 27,1954.

The series became "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" in 1961 and continued to change names (and networks) over the 40 years it was on the air. Today, children delight in "The Magical World of Disney Junior," which is inspired by Walt's original program.
