Mad T Party:

 News from the rabbit hole: Mad T Party will be returning to Disney California Adventure Park as a new, dazzling experience on May 22.

 The return of the popular dance party of the nighttime entertainment coming for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, including "Paint the Night" parade, "Disneyland Forever" fireworks and "World of Color-Celebrate!".

Luigi's Flying Tires closes: new experience to open early next year.

 As we all know, Cars Land has been a huge success since it opened in 2012, and guests have told us that the cars themselves are the one of the things they love about Radiator Springs. So, on Feb.16, Luigi's Flying Tires closed as our favorite Fiat left to visit family in Italy, and when he returns early next year his Casa della Tires will reopen as an all-new attraction with a new ride system and new ride vehicles.

can't wait....Dr Lee

Disneyland Trivia:

 The Emerald of Anaheim Hotel opened next to the Disneyland Hotel property in 1984.

 Owned by a Japanese company, it was renamed the Pan Pacific Hotel before being purchased by The Walt Disney Company in 1995 and renamed the Disneyland Pacific Hotel. Today it is Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel.

I remember when this was built.....Dr Lee

Happiness is.... sharing the dream of Disneyland:

 Van France, Founder, Disney University

  What does a brand new Cast Member have in common with a Cast Member celebrating his or her 40th service anniversary????

 Simple: They both have a passion for creating happiness.

 Van Arsdale France introduced the uniquely Disney philosophy of "creating happiness" back in 1955, before Disneyland opened its gates. Walt Disney understood that his new concept in family entertainment would require training curriculum that was just as unique as his park, so he personally hired Van to establish an unparalleled employee orientation program. Van had a background in creating employee training programs for, among others, the U.S.Army and airline industry. But Disneyland presented a unique challenge.

 "Disneyland at that time was still very much Walt's dream," Van said in an interview before he passed away in 1999, recalling the challenge of communicating the concept to the park's first hosts and hostesses. "There weren't too many people that understood what he had in mind." Yet Van identified a common thread between Disneyland and all the other organizations he worked with prior: a team needs to work together towards a goal. And at Disneyland, what better goal could there be than creating happiness for others???

With that in mind, Van emphasized Cast Members' responsibility to understand and cater to Guests while never losing their enthusiasm. In 1962, he proposed the University of Disneyland, designed to instill in Cast Members the philosophies, resources ands skills required to deliver a level of guest Service unsurpassed by any other organization. The Disney University concept would eventually become a model for other companies, and it wasn't long before it expanded to Disney operations across the globe.

 Van France's legendary career of promoting Walt Disney's philosophies has provided an invaluable foundation for our orientation program-known today as Traditions-as well as the DU growth and development opportunities that provide continued inspiration to our Cast. France was named a Disney Legend in 1994.

remember talking with him during my career .... Dr Lee

Get ready for a sparkling Celebration:

 The Disneyland Resort is getting ready to dazzle.

 When the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration kicks off in May to mark our 60th anniversary, we'll welcome a nighttime parade that sparkles with more than 1.5 million lights, a moving, new version of "World of Color" that celebrates Walt Disney's dream for Disneyland and a street-to-sky fireworks spectacular that uses innovative technology to make every Guest feel immersed in the stories we all love.

Here's a sneak peek of what's in store beginning May 22nd:

 'Disneyland Forever' fireworks spectacular....

 Imagine flying over the streets of London with Tinker Bell. With a sprinkle of pixie dust, you're dancing through the jungle with King Louie from "The Jungle Book." An instant later, you're diving under the sea with Sebastian from "The Little Mermaid." And that's just the beginning of "Disneyland Forever," a fireworks spectacular beyond anything seen before at Disneyland Park.

 Thanks to the largest installation of projection mapping technology in a Disney park, the fireworks "stage" will extend to Main Street, U.S.A., "it's a small world," the Rivers of America and the Matterhorn as projections transform familiar park icons into stunning story scenes from beloved Disney and Disney-Pixar films.

Two original songs also will be featured, the theme "Live the Magic," and the inspiring closing song "Kiss Goodnight," written by Disney Legend Richard Sherman.

'Paint the Night' parade....

 We'll see Disneyland Park in a whole new light during "Paint the Night" parade, the fist all-LED parade at the resort. More than 1.5 million individually controlled lights will flash and glow as they bring Disney stories to life, illuminating spectacular floats and gracing characters' and dancers' costumes.

In addition to Mickey Mouse and his pals, beloved characters from "Monsters,Inc.," "Cars," "The Little Mermaid," "Beauty and the Beast," "Toy Story" and "Frozen" will delight Guests.

'World of Color-Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney'....

 Testing has already began for an all-new "World of Color," a moving tribute to Walt Disney and the storytelling that has brought happiness to millions all over the world.

 Guests will go on a light-hearted but inspirational journey through the unparalleled imagination of Walt Disney, exploring his legacy of memorable animated moments and the dream of Disneyland Park.

All dressed up....

 Of course, many areas of the resort will be dressed for the occasion!!!

The iconic jewels of each park- Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Park and Carthay Circle Theatre at Disney California Adventure Park-will glisten with diamond overlays. A "Diamond D" logo and shades of Disneyland blue will grace banners, bunting and overlays around the theme parks, hotels, Downtown Disney and around the city of Anaheim. While the preparations for this massive resort enhancement has already began, most of the work will be done between February and April with the finishing touches applied in May.

"60 years ago, Walt Disney welcomed the first Guests to Disneyland. Nearly 3 billion Guests visits later, it's amazing to contemplate all that Disney Parks and Resorts represents to so many Guests around the world. We've conceived the Disneyland Diamond Anniversary as a celebration of this special place that started it all. Disneyland was envisioned as a place that encourages all of us to be 'forever young,' in part by being forever young itself...so we're celebrating not just the last 60 years, but all that is yet to come.

Circle D achieves groundbreaking zero waste certification:

 There's something missing at the Circle D Corral-trash cans.

 The Circle D Corral Team's commitment to conservation made history this month when the facility earned a zero waste gold level certification from the U.S. Zero Waste Business Council for diverting 99 percent of its trash, making it the first facility within The Walt Disney Company- or at any theme park- to achieve this goal.

 The journey to zero waste began four years ago, when stable attendant Andrea Raney recognized that most of the backstage ranch's waste was compostable. Andrea partnered with the Disneyland Resort's environmental teams to transition the area's 30-yard garbage bin to a compost bin.

With her team's support (after a bit of convincing), Andrea removed almost all of Circle D's waste bins-including her own leader's trash can. She found ways to reduce office paper and disposable paper cups. The team expanded its recycling of cardboard, plastics, metals, cans, bottles, paper and more. They compost all animal waste and hand towels, and, through partnerships with other areas, now also compost the resort's coffee grounds and laundry lint.

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.
