Make Halloween a night of delight:

  This Halloween, say "boo" to unsafe conditions. When the grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize, take precautions to make this Halloween not a night of fright but of safe delight.

TRIP OR TREAT?    Make sure your child's costume isn't to long that it is a tripping hazard. According to the National Safety Council, falls are the leading cause of unintentional injuries on Halloween, so select a flame-retardant costume that fits well and consider adding reflective tape or striping for enhanced visibility.

HEALTHY HALLOWEEN:    Before allowing a child to eat Halloween candy, inspect it!!!! The U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests that adults should inspect commercially wrapped treats for signs of tampering, such as an unusual appearance or discoloration, tiny pinholes or tears in wrappers and throw away anything that looks suspicious. Instruct your child not to eat any candy until you've inspected it together.

HAPPY HAUNTS:    When trick-or-treating, teach your kids to only travel in familiar areas along an established route and to stop only at well-lit houses or apartments. Before going out, designate a meeting location and time, and make sure you have a way to communicate with your child.

Happy Halloween...Dr Lee

Oswald The Lucky Rabbit:

 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, one of Walt Disney's earliest cartoon stars, has made his way off the page and into sunny Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park. Over the past couple of years, Guests have been donning rabbit ear hats and enjoying Oswald ice cream sundaes at Clarabelle's. Now, Guests can meet the lucky rabbit himself.

 Oswald made his film debut Sept. 5,1927, in the cartoon short "Trolley Troubles". Walt went on to produce 26 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit shorts before losing the rights to the character in 1928. It was that experience that inspired the creation of Mickey Mouse-and the rest is history. Oswald finally returned to the Disney family in 2006 and made his first Disney parks appearance earlier this year at Tokyo DisneySea.

 Oswald is scheduled to make appearances from park open to 7 p.m. daily between the entrance turnstiles and Hyperion Bridge.

A "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" Day:

 On July 17, 1989, Splash Mountain opened at Disneyland, joining the park's other famous mountain attractions, Matterhorn Bobsleds,Space Mountain and Big Thunder Railroad. Peaking at 87 feet tall, the attraction  features characters from the animated sequences of Walt Disney's classic film "Song of the South."

The film comes to life as Guests board a hollowed-out log vehicle to join the clever Brer Rabbit on his search for a "Laughin Place," encountering trouble with Brer Bear and  Brer Fox along the way. Critters serenade the travelers  with songs from the film as the log floats downstream, eventually careening five stories down Chick-A-Pin Hill and splashing into Briar Patch.

The attraction's finale reminds Brer Rabbit and Guests about the comforts of home and guarantees a " Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah"day. The showboat in the finale was also the largest animated prop at the time, measuring 50 feet wide and 30 feet high.

 Many of the 100 Audio-Animatronics figures were repurposed from the America Sings attraction, which closed in 1988.

 The addition of Splash Mountain-along with a new restaurant, Harbor Galley, and two new shops- capped a project to transform the land, formerly known as Bear Country, into Critter Country.

Inside the Ontario warehouse:

 Stepping into the Ontario warehouse is like walking into a small town with rows of shelves towering above like tall buildings. The sounds of beeping horns fill the air, as Cast Members use this "language" to signal their movements. The warehousing process runs so efficiently, it seems choreographed, which is essential since the Ontario warehouse team sends full truckloads to the resort three to six times  daily. This 285,000 square-foot warehouse  also supports Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, and Disney Cruise Line on the West Coast.

In addition to the merchandise items and operational supplies stored, the warehouse also hosts items that might seem unconventional. Hundreds of attraction tooling and mold materials are stored here, in the event that they are needed for future reference.

The 48 Cast Members who work at the Ontario warehouse take great pride in what they do, agreeing that a devotion to teamwork leads to their team's success.

Located some 30 miles from the Disneyland Resort, as soon as a product is sold in the Disneyland Resort, the replenishment process is triggered, notifying  the team on when and which items need to be shipped to Anahiem.

The Distribution Services Cast Members load those items onto trailers and deliver the shipments to Building 100 at the Disneyland Resort.

Next, a team prepares to distribute the items throughout the Disneyland Resort. Scanners linked to a database system tell cast Members what items should be "picked" and where the should go. Teams gather these items by filling red totes and loading them onto a conveyor belt system. The technology is so precise that the system knows exactly how many units will fill one tote and how much it should weight when full, leading to greater efficiency and accuracy. Once items arrive at their ultimate destination, Cast Members prepare the items-the stage where the products ultimalely make their way to the Guest.

Love it....Dr Lee

Historyand Heritage:

 What could you accomplish in 361 days!!!

 Walt Disney built a theme park????

That's right-it took less than a year from time bulldozers first arrived at the orange groves in Anaheim to the day the first Guests were welcomed at the Main Entrance of Disneyland.

 July 21,1954 (Dr Lee was 2 years,1 month and 1 day old).....
   The first trees were cleared from the property Walt Disney purchased. the main work involved removing citrus trees and moving 11 houses.

August 1954...
  Actual earth-moving began, but there was no official groundbreaking ceremony. The McNeil Construction Company of Los Angeles, the lowest of 8 bidders, was awarded the construction contract, which included excavation for a lake , rivers and a bed for railroad track, installation of all underground utilities and a railroad overpass to serve as the entrance to the park.

 Also in August, a 50-foot camera was installed in the center of the hub to record construction. In addition, a merry-go-around was purchased in Toronto. After it was shipped to California, it was altered to a four-abreast configuration, and all standing horses were converted to jumpers.

 The first "Disneyland" television series episode debuted; later episodes included construction progress updates.

 Major companies committed to participation in Disneyland, including Santa Fe, Bekins, U.S. Time, Chicken of the Sea, ABC, Carnation, TWA, and American Motors.

December 1954...
 Earth work, fencing, water mains, gas lines and telephone conduits neared completion. At this time, the total staff consisted of 21 permanent cast members and five consultants (excluding contractors.)

January 1955...
 Construction began on Tomorrowland. Originally not planned to open with the rest of the park, Walt changed his mind and included Tomorrowland as part of opening day. He also announced plans to build a hotel on West Street. The Disneyland Hotel was initially owned and operated by the Wrather Corp.

May 1955...
 The first orientation program was conducted by Van France, who founded Disney University and was later named a Disney Legend. The term "We Create Happiness" was rolled out- and is still used today.

July 17, 1955...
 Opening Day (Invitational Press Preview); the park opened to the general public the following day.
