Disney Junior "Live on Stage":

 Part of the fun of visiting the Disneyland Resort is getting to experience some of the newest Disney characters and stories alongside beloved classics. On March 22,2013, new characters from Disney Junior hit shows will join the cast of "Disney Junior-Live on Stage!" at Disney California Adventure Park, ready to delight the preschool audience- and their families.

 Joining the lineup are characters from "Doc McStuffins" and "Sofia the first," top animated shows on Disney Junior , the 24-hour channel and morning block on Disney Channel.

 "Sofia the First" revolves around a little girl who suddenly becomes a princess when her mom marries the king. In that segment of the live stage production, Sofia, Disney's first preschool princess, is learning the royal ropes and needs some help making things magical for a ball hosted by her new stepdad, King Roland II. Set in the storybook world of Enchancia, Sofia is also joined by her new step-siblings, Amber and James.

 One of the most magical things that happens during that segment of the show is that it snows inside this venue. It's really cool to watch the children's reactions but even more amazing when you see the adults looking around in awe and amazement.

 Later in the show, Guests meet "Doc McStuffins," a 6-year-old girl who wants to be a doctor, just like her mom. When she puts on her stethoscope, something magical happens: toys, dolls and stuffed animals come to life and she can communicate with them. In the stage production, "Doc" heals her toys with a little help from her stuffed animal friends, Stuffy the blue dragon, Hallie the hippo,Lambie the lamb and Chilly the snowman.

 Celebrating its 10th anniversary next month, the show originally opened as "Playhouse Disney- Live on Stage!" and has been updated over the years to incorporate the newest, most popular shows kids love to watch on Disney Channel. In 2011, the show was renamed "Disney Junior-Live on Stage!" to coincide with the launch of the Disney Junior programming block and added characters from "Jake and the Neverland Pirates." The live host, Casey, interacts with all of the characters  in the various segments, bridging the gap between the puppets and young viewers.


 Twin brothers James and Scott Silson share more than the same parents- and the same birth date. The brothers also are working side by side on the same stage for the relaunch of "Disney Junior- Live Stage !" at Disney California Adventure Park and at the Walt Disney World Resort.

  James and Scott are both puppet masters with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entrainment, although James, who is also show director, is based at the Walt Disney World resort and Scott is based at the Disneyland Resort. Together,they are working to blend the characters from Disney Junior 's hit shows "Doc McStuffins" and "Sofia the First" into popular stage production aimed at preschoolers.

 But it certainly isn't the first time the brothers have worked together. For most of their childhood, they traveled the country performing with their parents,who are professional musicians,and their three younger siblings. "We were like "The Partridge Family- we even had a VW bus," laughs James. "It was an unorthodox way of growing up, but it kept us firmly ensconced in entertainment-driven from a very young age.."

 By the time the twins were teenagers, they were talented musicians and songwriters ready to launch their own band. By then, the family had settled in Florida and the twins needed a "day job" while they performed locally. In 1998, they saw an audition at the Walt Disney World resort for puppeteers and figured they'd give it a try, despite the fact that they hadn't worked with puppets before. They were both hired for the "Pocahontas and her Forest Friends" show for opening of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

 The brothers took to puppeteering so quickly, in less than a year they were training others,"Sometimes you choose your career and other times your career chooses you," said James. "This was one of the times when our career chose us."

 James became a puppet specialist and then puppet master, traveling to Hong Kong and Paris, and he is now on the show director team. Scott also became a puppet specialist in Florida and was promoted to the puppet master role at the Disney Resort last summer.

 Although they are now based on opposite coasts, they fall right back into a routine when working together, as they have with the "Disney Junior-Live on Stage" relaunch, which debuts on March 22,2013.

"We probably know each other better as work partners than as brothers," Scott said. "We sang together, we rehearsed together, wrote songs together, did outside theater together- we were even mimes together."

Although the brothers are fraternal twins, they look practically identical , which has led to some interesting mix-ups."People confuse us every day," Scott said with a laugh. "When James became puppet master and joined the Creative team, he was allowed to were jeans and grow a beard. I used to get feedback about wearing jeans and having facial hair and I"d have to ask, "Was my brother here."

Only one Dr Lee,that's enough don't you think, HaHa...Dr Lee

Grand Canyon diorama debuts on the Disneyland Railroad:

 All aboard for the Grand Canyon:

 On March 31,1958, Guests riding the rails of the Disneyland Railroad first marveled at this "grand" new attraction to the Grand Circle Tour of Disneyland Park, located between the Tomorrowland and Main Street, U.S.A. stations.

 The diorama recreates the view from the south rim of the Grand Canyon, depicting native animals like deer, skunks, wild turkeys and mountain lions living among aspen and pine trees. Stretching 306 feet wide and 34 feet tall, the diorama features a seamless canvas backdrop painted by Delmer Yoakum, an artist and motion picture scenic designer, who used 300 gallons of paint to recreate the canyon's colors under weather phenomena like snowfall, sunsets and rainbows. The trek is set to composer Ferde Grofe's "On the Trail" from his "Grand Canyon Suite."

Later in 1958, Disney released the documentary featurette "Grand Canyon," which won an Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Live Action). In 1966, the grand Canyon diorama was bookended by the dinosaurs of Primeval World, relocated from the Magic Skyway attraction of the 1964 World's Fair.

Love riding the rails at  Disneyland...Dr Lee

Fastasy Faire:

 Once upon a time, fairy tale Princesses were in search of a Royal Gathering place to receive Guests of the Kingdom. This Royal Hall should be surrounded by Enchantment in the form of a Royal Theatre brimming with Music, dancing and Merriment. Henceforth, this wondrous place shall be known as Fantasy Faire.


 Since 1955, Sleeping Beauty Castle has been the heart of Disneyland Park, an iconic symbol of "The Happiest Place on Earth," where dreams come true every day. And on March 12- nearly 58 years later-Fantasy Faire continues that legacy. A natural extension of the castle and Fantasyland, Guests will be invited into a charming European village inspired by their favorite Disney stories and meet beloved Disney princesses in a new setting befitting royalty.

 Located in the former Carnation Plaza Gardens, Fantasy Faire's architecture was designed to blend seamlessly with Fantasyland, with turrets and a castle wall adding that royal touch.

 Like Fantasyland, Fantasy Faire is filled with unique Disney touches and hidden details for Guests to explore and discover. However, the true magic of Fantasy Faire lies within the characters and Cast Members who populate the area, bringing the story to life for every Guest.


 Reminiscent of the medieval faire theme of the original Fantasyland, the Royal Theatre is an open-air venue where the lively Renaissance storytellers Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones will present the tales of "Beauty and the Beast" and "Tangled" - with vaudeville flair-each day, to the musical accompaniment of Sir Samuel of Morocco.
 However, Guests won't have to use their imaginations for every character, as Belle, Lumiere, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider will join in on the fun. After each performance, Guests can greet the shows respective princess.


 Get twisted with Maurice's treats, a gypsy wagon that has been transformed into a food "invention" cart concocted by Belle's lovable (and slightly discombobulated)father. Guests can choose between flaky strawberry or chocolate twists, or savory cheddar garlic bagel twists that pair perfectly with the new Boysen Apple Freeze drink, topped with passion fruit foam.


 Just above a facade that adorns the passage to Frontierland is a crest with three carnations and the letters "CPG." That's a tribute to Carnation Plaza Gardens, which occupied the site from 1956 to 2012.


Within this new merchandise location, young Guests create their own happily ever after with princess costumes,accessories, toys and more. Look closely and you may discover a hidden acorn within the treasure chest on the shop sign. A nod to the friendly woodland creatures from such classics as "Sleeping Beauty" and "Cinderella" squirrels admiring their acorn "treasures" can be seen throughout the shop.


 Once Guests step into the Gothic-inspired interior of the Royal Hall, they will travel from room to room, meeting some of their favorite Disney princesses, including Ariel, Aurora and Cinderella, each in their own area of the hall beneath crown-inspired chandeliers. Its like seeing the princesses living inside their castle and you're a part of their world.


 In the middle of the square is a 16-foot-high stone sculpture of Rapunzel's tower from "Tangled." At the top, Rapunzel peeks through the window and every so often, Mother Gothel's song plays, bringing Rapunzel's hair to life. At night, something magical will happen, and every now and then her hair will glow. Her hair is twisted around the column, so twinkling lights will surround the whole column.


 If you peek up into the windows of Fantasy Faire, you may catch Figaro, Geppetto's cat from Pinocchio,sleeping on a window balcony next to a bird cage. The bird whistles melodies from several classic Disney tunes, which sometimes wakes Figaro, causing him to meow and interact with his feathered friend.


 Come one, come all to Topsy Turvy Day in Clopin's Music Box. With one turn of the crank, Guests will set a scene in motion featuring Clopin, the leader of the gypsies in"The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Once the music begins to play, the whole scene comes to life.

This an amazing attraction,everyone should see...Dr Lee

Just a thought:

"Laughter is the best cosmetic...so grin and wear it!

Closing days at Mr Stox...

Only days remain for Mr Stox in Anaheim,California. Closing March 15,2013 (approx 8 business days,closed Sun/Mon).....

 So many sad faces are seen in the bar and throughout the restaurant,and with the closing just days away,it's only going to get sadder!!!

 Opened since 1968 and owned by the Marshall family since 1977, this has been a land mark here in Anaheim. Fine dining, a wine list that is like a small novel and staff to complete your experience, not many of these old school restaurants are still around.

 So if possible, do stop by before those last words are spoken, ""THE BAR IS NOW CLOSED.""

it has been a fun ride...Dr Lee
