It's official: we have a new princess!!

By proclamation of the powers of Disney, Rapunzel, star of "Tangled," is now an official Disney princess.

In a London celebration hosted at Kensington Palace on Oct.2 2011, Rapunzel was crowned the 10th Disney princess joining Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Snow White and Tiana.

Since the November 2010 release of the movie, Disney's 50th full-length feature animated film has become one of the top 10 grossing Disney movies of all time, ahead of "Toy Story," "Beauty and the Beast," "Cars," and "Toy Store 2." Due to the overwhelming popularity of the film, it's no surprise that the No.1 sellling Disney princess costume this season at the Disneyland Resort is Rapunzel.

What a great movie...DR LEE

Disney's haunting Halloween history:

Today we know it as Mickey's Halloween Party- the only opportunity for guests of any age to dress up in halloween costumes at the Disneyland Resort. However, the popular after-hours trick-or-treat party was called Mickey's Halloween Treat! when it debuted in 1995. It ran for two years and then resurfaced at Disney California Adventure Park in 2005 as Mickey's Trick-or-Treat Party. The party moved back to Disneyland Park in 2010 and adopted its current name: Mickey's Halloween Party.

The Walt Disney World Resort has been hosting a similar event since 1995, called Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. What started as a one-night event at the Magic Kingdom quickly grew in popularity, transforming into multiple-night party that includes a pre-parade ride of the Headless Horseman from "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." As the sounds of the horse's clip-clops echo down Main Street, U.S.A.,Guests anxiously await a glimpse of the beheaded ghost as he searches for his head.

Disney villains:

Ursula: Villain? Little ol' me? Preposterous! Certainly I've been called some very unflattering names-"nasty,"-"witch"- but really, I'm simply misunderstood. I want what every merperson wants-happiness. Oh, and of course Triton's kingdom, too, but I'm worth it, aren't I?

Hit Film..."The Little Mermaid" (1989)
Likes...eels,the color purple,the perfect spell
Dislikes...Mermaids, singing fish and crabs

Maleficent:the Mistress of All Evil, I am without equal or peer.

Hit Film..."Sleeping Beauty" (1959)
Dislikes...heroic mice,knights on white horses

Queen of Hearts..."Your Highness of Hissy Fits" for being the "overlord of outbursts" and the "ruler of rage." You should be warned my dear, "if I lose my temper, you should lose your head!!!!! Understood?

Hit Film: "Alice in Wonderland" (1951)
Dislikes...people,spades, diamonds and clubs

Disneyland Mine Train:

Before there was Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, a roller coaster that hustles about, there was a battery-powered mine train that rolled along in that same stretch of Disneyland, an attraction that its former cast members fondly remember. Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland was the first major attraction added at the park following its summer 1955 opening.
"Walt's choice was, right after Disneyland's first summer, "What do we do next? We'll do a railroad. They're easy to design and build."
The train took guests on a journey through Rainbow Caverns; it eventually was expanded to include a trip through Nature's Wonderland including visits to Beaver Valley, Bear Country and the Painted Desert. The landscape was barren desert with large boulders; there were geysers, a wooden bridge over the water and large bears, one in the water with a fish in it's mouth. The men who worked the attraction as attraction hosts formed a club, the Order of the Red Handkerchiefs. Part of their costumes were red handkerchiefs, worn around the neck, then that costume was changed,and then this red handkerchief were carryed in their pockets. At first, the attraction hosts did live spiels, that was changed to a recording and the attraction hosts would focus on driving the trains.
This was Walt's Disney favorite park attraction: When he brought guests to Disneyland, he would take them to the Golden Horseshoe to watch the live show then have the guests take a mine-train ride.
Disney also used to walk the track to keep an eye on the auto-animatronic animals that populated the attraction.There are still signs of the long-gone attraction. Along the banks of The Rivers of America are some of the original tracks, coming out of two tunnels. Along the trail next to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad sits the pond that was home to Bear Country, along with the other side of the two tunnels.
Many of the buildings around the waiting line for Big Thunder are the same ones from the mine Train. That area is still referred to as the town of Rainbow Ridge, like it was for the original Mine Train attraction.
The attraction closed in 1977, because of the attraction's limited capacity and the park's desire for an attraction with more thrills. Also, there was rarely a line for Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland during its last years.
Once a year, cast members gather for dinner and to swap stories about working on the attraction. Because of the cast members dwindling numbers, it now allows anyone who worked on the west side of the park while the Mine train was opened to join. Early next month, in an Anahiem hotel, the stories will fly again.

I remember as a kid, riding this attraction...DR LEE RETIRED, BARTENDER

Gingerbread House:

Each year, Entertainment designers create one of the most anticipated Halloween Time decorations-the gingerbread house in the Haunted Mansion Holiday attraction. And this year is no exception.
Every year is a new challenge to outdo last years creation. This year, something new was added,gumdrops that light up...taking our guests into the eerie world of Jack Skellington. The foundation of the 6-foot house is made of wood and wired for animation. It then goes to the Disneyland Resort Central Bakery, where it is meticulously adorned with 500 pounds of gingerbread, 10 yards of fondant and miles of frosting and oversized candies.
To commemorate the 11th season of the holiday overlay based on Tim Burton's "the Nightmare Before Christmas," a new line of pins are now avaiable. These pins are replicas of each gingerbread display from the past decade. The Haunted Mansion Hoilday Gingerbread Mystery Collection will debut Oct.8,2011.

Love Halloween/Christmas time at the Disneyland Resort...DR LEE
