The Little Mermaid, Ariel's Undersea Adventure:

This Disney California Adventure Park major attraction not only is a new spectacular jewel in the transformation of Paradise Pier, but it will be one of the most heartwarming attractions ever to sing its way into guest's hearts-another great reason why this will be a "soundsational" summer at the Disneyland Resort.
From the moment guests enter the queue, they will be serenaded by a medley of songs from the 1989 blockbuster," The Little Mermaid," one of the most beloved Disney films of all time.
Scuttle, the seagull, will greet guests as they pass throuh the broken hull of a shipwreck before they enter Ariel's Grotto and go under the sea to become part of Ariel's world on the ocean floor. Imagineers are especially proud of Ariel's hair as her mane has been animated to appear underwater, suspended and floating, similar to how her hair is always in motion in the film.
Ursula, the evil sea witch, plays a big role in the story. Ursula's Audio-Animatronics figure is 12 feet wide and 7.5 feet tall. She is designed with a squash and stretch function in her torso so that she can bounce along with the music, making her even more bewitching.
Innovative technological advancements and clever special effects help bring this new attraction to life. It is immersive, involved and full of characters from the film. The experience is about fun and the hope is that guests will exit the attraction with huge smiles on their faces...or tears of joy.

Some Facts:

...The attraction experience is approximately 5 1/2 minutes from the time guests load the clam shell to the time they exit the clam shell

...If King Triton looks familiar atop the attraction's main archway, it's because this is the same Triton who once appeared near "The Little Mermaid" meet-and-greet area in Fantasyland

...This attraction also will be included in the new Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort where it will be called "Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid," opening at a later date

...There are 184 Audio-Animatronics characters in the attraction, including the spinning starfish

This is an "amazing" attraction,it's worth the wait...DR LEE

Historic enhancements for an iconic hotel:

The Disneyland Hotel has a storied history, from the original 87 hotel rooms to the vast lodging and entertainment experience that it is today.

The Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam's outdoor dining area will offer a beautiful view of the newly designed Disneyland Hotel courtyard.

Disneyland Grad Nite:

On June 15, 1961, Walt Disney threw the original Grad Nite party at Disneyland Park for 8,500 high school seniors from Los Angeles and Orange counties. Fifty years later, Grad Nite has grown into a Southern California tradition, continuing over seven nights this May and June. Although the formal dress code of the early years-suits and ties for gentlemen, dresses and skirts for ladies- has given way to more casual attire, Disneyland Grad Nite remains the ultimate all-night graduation party, with more than 5 million enthusiastic high school seniors celebrating their accomplishments over the past half century in Walt Disney's original Magic Kingdom.

Broadcast Services:

While watching " Extreme Makeover Home Edition" you realize that the family featured is enjoying themselves at Disneyland while their dream home is being built. Or perhaps you see a commercial promoting Star Tours-The Adventures Continue at Disneyland or listening to Mark & Kristin of KOST 103.5 FM broadcast live from Sleeping Beauty Castle. Perhaps your family watches the TV special, Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. Ever wonder who is behind the scenes of those projects? That team is Broadcast Services and they are right in our backyard.
Broadcast Services provides a specialized service for our Disney partners. From initial project request to the completion of the final product, this team of cast members plan project logistics for any professional camera crew that comes to shoot at the Disneyland Resort. Whether it's staying on budget, hiring a jib camera operator or handling talent, this team manages all of the preplanning work.
Once a project is accepted, it is assign to a production manager that determines a shooting schedule and works closely with a Broadcast logistics manager. Together, they set up all the shooting elements in our theme parks, always keeping our guests in mind. Broadcast Services want to create minimal impact on these guests and their stay in the theme parks.
Once a project is planned, a crew tapes all required shots, whether it's a commercial, a scripted TV segment, live-to-tape TV special or B-ROLL ( footage used to complete an edited piece). With every detail already planned out, the team is perpared to capture the moments that soon air on TV. And those billboards or magazine ads? Those logistics are arranged by this team as well.
Broadcast Services also deals with the lighting and technical expertise needed to support all projects. Anything you see that takes place at the resort comes through this team. That could be a 'Dancing with the Stars' segment, a live weather hit on ABC or the video updates at Blue Sky Cellar. Without this teams help,these projects would not become reality.
After the footage has been utilized, what Happens then? Much of it is edited and downloaded into Media Asset Management Systems. Staff Editor and Department Archivist teams keep track of all department footage which traces back to the construction of Disneyland itself. Then, when clients are producing a project and need additional footage to tell the story, they request specific footage to insert as a background to a voiceover or to enhance a specific message.
So whether it's for TV production or radio remotes, Broadcast Services plays an important role in the success of thousands of projects a year used to market the Resort. It takes a lot of planning, but to them,it's just show business!


Broadcast Services manages, coordinates, shoots, edits and executes projects for 34 different clients including Public Relations, Promotions, Marketing Special Events, Original Programming, WDPRO, Entertainment, Sales, and synergy partners such as ABC-TV, WDI, the Disney Channel,ESPN, Disney Cruise Line, Disney Vacation Club, and Buena Vista Marketing.

Disneyland and Guest Service,taking it to the next level:

New guide for guests with disabilities.

This month, a new guide was made available to cast members- the Services for Guests with Disabilities Guide. This tool helps us to provide the best service possible to all guests, no matter how they experience the Disneyland Resort. Cast Members can use this guide to educate themselves on disability etiquette, details about guest with service animals, and tips on how to best assist guests with mobility, hearing and visual disabilities.

Having been part of the magic at the Disneyland Resort, I have seen first hand how Guests enjoy their stay. From a small child seeing Micky Mouse for the first time in person, to young adults having fun without parents to parents on a "date night" enjoying their time together. So no matter what shape you are in, chances are good your stay, at the Disneyland Resort will be amazing.

See you at the Park...Dr Lee A.K.A. Tigger

Hawaiian culture and traditions:

This August, Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa located in Ko Olina on the island of O'ahu, will open its doors to the public. In anticipation of the opening, here are a few facts about Hawaii.

Lei greetings of aloha:

Lei is a Hawaiian word for garland or wreath and one of the most recognizable symbols of aloha. To the islanders, the lei is more than a string of flowers- it represents a deep and abiding part of the Hawaiian culture.
During the "Boat Days" of the early 1900s, lei vendors lined the pier at Aloha Tower to welcome visitors to the islands. It is saided that departing visitors would throw their lei into the sea in hopes that, like the lei, they too would return to the islands again someday.
A lei is created to be given to another for a special reason and as a sign of affection. It is a tradition to present a lei to greet, honor, celebrate, congratulate and express love to others for many occasions including birthdays, anniversaries,retirement, graduations or weddings. Different lei material have different uses and significance in Hawaiian culture. A hula dancer may wear a lei bearing symbolism for the story or the island for which the song was written. For expectant mothers, only open lei are appropriate. Never present a pregnant woman with a closed lei.
Lei may be maded of fresh flowers and foliage such as ti leaves, ferns,vines or seeds. More permanent and long lasting lei may be created fron shells, kukui nuts, feathers or even paper and silk.
When being presented a lei, the receiver should acknowledge the presenter by standing still and bending slightly if needed so the person can easily place the lei over the neck. The proper way to wear a lei is draped over the neck and shoulders, hanging in front and back. Should the lei prove too fragrant for the recipient, it is acceptable to place it nicely in an area where it may be more appreciated from a distance.
Wearers should be mindful when discarding a lei as it should never be discarded casually or in the trash. If not kept as a keepsake, traditionally, florals or foliage should be returned to the earth after removing the string.

Common Hawaiian words and phrases:

Aloha- greetings, hello,goodbye, affection, love

Aloha kakahiaka- good morning

Aloha 'auinala- good afternoon

Aloha ahiahi- good evening

Plural word for lei: lei (same as singular)

Aloha, see you in Hawaii...DR LEE

May 28,1966- 'it's a small world' opens at Disneyland Park:

Walt Disney's vision of brotherhood and friendship was brought to life by Disney Legend Mary Blair for the 1964 New York World's Fair. When the attraction was moved to Disneyland Park in 1966, Mary also designed the fanciful external facade. The soundtrack "it's a small world" was written by Richard and Robert Sherman from Walt's clear instructions-that the song represent childern as the light of the future, worldwide. The song may be the catchiest Disney attraction theme song of all time, also enjoyed by visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort, Disneyland Paris and the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.

Let's all sing... "it's a small world after all,"...........DR LEE
