Disneyland Candlelight ceremony performances extended to 20 nights:

 Dating back to 1958, the Candlelight Ceremony and Processional is one of the oldest and most beloved holiday traditions at Disneyland Park. This year, for the first time, the event will be extended to a total of 20 nights, with two performances each night. The first two nights, Dec. 1-2, will be invitation-only events; performances from Dec. 3-20 will be open to Disneyland Resort annual passholders and guests booking special, to-be-announced dining packages for the 2012 holiday season.

 The Candlelight Ceremony and Processional is an evening performance of classic holiday music and the telling of the first Christmas Story in Town Square with the help of celebrities such as Cary Grant, John Wayne, Dick Van Dyke and, in 2011, Gary Sinise. The popular tradition was adopted at the Walt Disney World Resort in 1971.

I sang in Candlelight for 5 years, mid ninty's, I still remember most of the music...Dr Lee

History and Heritage:


Postal Service issues first Walt Disney stamp:

  With help from than-California Gov. Ronald Reagan, the first postage stamp to honor Walt Disney debuted Sept.11,1968.

 Although the U.S.Postal Service has a policy requiring that an individual be deceased for 10 years before his or her image can grace a stamp, Reagan wrote to Postmaster General Lawrence F. O`Brien, persuading him to issue the stamp just two years after Walt's Death:

 "I hesitate to even mention California's pride in his vast accomplishments for fear of detracting from his true image as a world renowned and world beloved figure. There is no necessity, "Reagan wrote in a letter dated April3, 1967. "I'm sure, for me to itemize his contribution to humanity, they can be summed up by simply saying that because of him, the world is a richer, better, place."

 The six-cent stamp's design was a partnership between Paul Wenzel, who crafted Walt's portrait, and Bob Moore, who created the "it's a small world" dolls and Sleeping Beauty Castle artwork. Ceremonies on the first day of issue were held in Marceline, Mo., Walt's boyhood hometown, and more than 150 million of the stamps were sold over the next 10 days. A total of 36 more years would pass before another U.S. stamp would celebrate Walt Disney.

Just for you're information, I have 4 of these stamps from 1968, a lady in Berkeley, California knew about my employment with the Walt Disney Company and about a month ago gave them to me...Wow..Dr Lee

Bartender Humor:

 An Irish Wedding reception;

 At the wedding reception someone yelled... "Would all married men, please stand next to the one person who has made your life worth living." The bartender was almost crushed to death.


 Mike strikes up a conversation with the bartender. " I've quit my job and taken up writing as a career."
 "Sold anything yet?" asks the bartender. "Oh yeah lots of stuff," says Mike.
 "Like what?' "My watch, my TV set, my CD player, my stereo..."



 Bottle of wine that gets excited like selter and costs like diamonds.

and finally...

A New York theatrical agent is surprised when a bartender in his favorite bar leans across the bar, shakes his hand, and says, "Remember me? I'll bet you're surprised to see me tending bar." "Not really Johnathan," says the agent, "I remember your acting."

 I hope this bar humor will put a smile on your busy day...Dr Lee

"The Avengers" are returning for a superhero sequel three years from now.

 Disney and its Marvel Studios unit announced Thursday that the follow-up to this year's biggest hit will arrive in theaters on May 1,2015.

 The studio announced last week that Joss Whedon will be back to write and direct the as-yet-untitled sequel. "The Avengers" has taken in nearly $1.5 billion worldwide.

There will be plenty of Marvel action building up to "The Avengers" follow-up. Downey's  "Iron Man 3" is due out next May, followed by Hemsworth's "Thor" sequel in November 2013 and Evans` "Captain America" sequel in April 2014.
Wow, great moive...Dr Lee


 Disney California Adventure Park is already changing Luigi's Flying Tires.

 The Cars Land attraction, in which visitors float on tire-shaped vehicles similar to bumper cars on an air-hockey table, is undergoing major changes just two months after it opened with the park's massive makeover.

 Disney California Adventure park guests fly around and throw beach balls on Luigi's Flying Tires. Disney recently removed gigantic beach balls that guests had tossed to one another as they floated along on the Flying Tires.

 Over the next three weeks, Cast Members will remove weight from the undercarriages of the Flying Tires and this should increase the speed.

 Originally, the Flying Tires were to have joysticks, but it confused guests during testing. Still, the spin-control infrastructure remain below, weighing anout 20 pounds. The removal  of that infrastructure is under way and should be done by September. The Flying Tires attraction will not be shut down.

 About 90% of surveyed guests have said they would return to Cars Land. However, Luigi's Flying Tires has ranked as the least popular of the Three Cars Land attractions.

 The beach balls were added to Luidi's shortly  before it opened as a way to give the attraction a more festive look, as well as added fun for guests.

  But wait times lagged, often lasting an hour or more, usually because guests slowed down to pick up the balls as they were getting aboard.

I have not taken a ride on this attraction, however, I want to...Dr Lee

Two Disney artists make millions of portraits:

 On Main Street,U.S.A., two Disney Cast Members capture the profiles of babies, grandparents, dogs,cats,parrots, horses,goats, a hedgehog and even a vintage car.

 Sometimes these Disney artists work from photos, but usually from the Guests themselves. Halos are sometimes placed above those who have died.

 Over the decades, the two have worked at the Disneyland Silhouette studio to create more than 4 million images, using surgical scissors to cut outlines of faces with black paper in half-minute that are placed on white backing.

 The studio opened on Main Street, U.S.A. in January 1956, six months after the park opened. Bonnie Elliott has 38 years; Sylvia Fellows,33 years. Two other Cast Members (artists) have shorter periods.

"I'm drawing with my scissors. It's very fun. It's like a game, " said Elliott, 61, of Redondo Beach.

 The studio is one of the few deliberately messy places in Disneyland Park: Cast Members are told to keep the paper scraps on the floor.

 Fellows has created up to 434 images in a shift. Elliott has done 472 pictures in eight hours; she can do some in as little as 15 seconds.

These Cast Members cut two mirror-image copies at a time. Each head image costs $9 each.

 A Northern California pastor asked church members to get their portraits done if they went to Disneyland so his wife could put them in their house. So these artists keep hearing from Guests who wanted portraits for "the pastor's wife."

 One day, a woman came in and said, "You know me. I'm the pastor's wife." She went on to collect portraits of 147 individuals and a dog.

 Fellows once cut the profile of a terminally ill child because her parents wanted to use the art for her grave. Others are replicated for tattoos or jewelry.

 Elliott had one couple get silhouettes when they were dating and later came back with their own childern and then their grandchildern.

 A Guest from Alamo, California brought his  two daughters. He recognized Fellows as having completed his 13-year-old portrait when she was 5.

The Walt Disney Company Cast Members are a talented group...Dr Lee

Reimagine your commute:

 It's no secret that transportation in and around the Disneyland Resort has gotten a little bit more, well, complicated lately. The grand reopening of Disney California Adventure Park has brought even more Guests to the resort this summer. And while that's great news, more guests mean more cars-which has made the daily Cast Members commute a bit more challenging.

 If you haven't already explored Commuter Assistance options, now is the time to take a look at how you can save time, traffic headaches and lots of money. We're talkin hundreds, even thousands of dollars each year! And, as a bonus, you'll feel good about saving the environment.


 Not only can you slash your gas bill in half,but sharing a ride to work makes you eligible for carpool preferred parking spaces and a bonus of $1 a day*.


 Cast Members ride free on nearly all Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and Anaheim Resort Transportation (ART) bus routes with the OCTA E-Pass available at Commuter Assistance. There are two new ART routes from Santa Ana and Buena Park that run until 10 p.m. daily, and many OCTA routes that run past midnight. Not only is your commute free, but you can earn $1 per day*.


 Each day more than 50 vanpools arrive at the Disneyland Resort, carrying Cast Members who are getting paid $1 a day*- not to mention an additional $60 per month in van subsidies. Drivers ride for free!


 Save money. Save time and the environment. Improve your health. `Nuf said. Oh, and the $2 you can earn each day* can pay for a new bike or a snazzy new pair of Nike Free Runs.


Riding the iron horse to work scores you an extra buck in your pocket each day* and Disney will even subsidize 50 percent of your monthly Metrolink pass up to $80. The closest train station to the resort is the Anahiem station located in the Angel Stadium parking lot, where free shuttle buses run by OCTA and ART pick you up. Just show your Metrolink ticket and your shuttle ride is free.

* Bonuses are paid for accurately reporting participation to Commuter Assistance.

Did you know?
 You would have to plant almost half an acre of pine forest to offset the carbon dioxide the average driver's car releases into the atmosphere in one year.

As a Cast Member, I have Carpooled,was a driver of a vanpool and rode the iron horse (train) to and from the Disneyland Resort. Living in Moreno Valley, California, I arrived to work feeling refreshed and ready to make drinks at Club 33....Dr Lee

Flying Saucers opens at Disneyland Park:

 When Guests board Luigi's Flying Tires, there's inevitably a nostalgic mention of the Disneyland Park attraction that inspired it half a century ago; the fabled Flying Saucers attraction, which opened Aug. 6, 1961, in Tomorrowland.

 It was the dawn of the Space Age when Disneyland unveiled the futuristic version of bumper cars-individual pods styled after the UFOs of sci-fi lore that hovered on a cushion of air, which riders maneuvered by shifting their body weight to bump into unsuspecting pilots. At the end of the ride cycle, a large arm scooped the saucers back into the loading area for the next Guests.

 The Flying Saucers only lasted five years, owing largely to the space-age technology not yet being perfected; the location is now the theater where "Captain EO" plays. Today, the unique experience of floating on air can be relived and shared with a whole new generation of fans at Luigi's Flying Tires in Cars Land.

As a kid growing up in Southern California, I remember my parents taking my brothers and  me to Disneyland in 1962,I was 10 years old; and I remember riding the Flying Saucers, so much fun. ...Dr Lee
