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

Then and Now:

 Celebrating the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort:

 The holidays have always been a special time at the Disneyland Resort with treasured traditions dating back to the first "Christmas at Disneyland" festival in 1955. While today's holiday celebrations look very different from those early years, there's one thing that remains unchanged: the warmth and joy of the season that cast Members share with every Guest.

 Here's a look at some of those holiday traditions- then and now:


 THEN: The first holiday parade took place Nov.24, 1955, kicking off the first annual "Christmas at Disneyland" festival. Led by Walt Disney and actor Fess Parker(who played Davey Crockett on TV), the parade featured traditional holiday elements and live animals, including camels, llamas-even an ostrich.

NOW: This tradition continues with "A Christmas Fantasy" parade in Disneyland Park, which has delighted Guests since 1995, and this year welcomes Anna And Elsa from "Frozen" into its cast.


 On December 17,1961, a 24-foot Christmas star was fixed atop the 14-story-high Matterhorn mountain. The star would become a holiday tradition through 1972.


 THEN:  The practice of inviting local choirs to sing during the holidays began in 1955 on the Main Street, U.S.A., bandstand, renamed the "Christmas Bowl." By 1958, the event had evolved into the first Candlelight Ceremony and Processional with 16 choirs performing at the base of Sleeping Beauty Castle. In1960, a celebrity narrator was added to read the story of Christmas. Over the years, they included Cary Grant, John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart.

NOW: The Candlelight Ceremony and Processional will take place December 6 and 7 this year in Town Square with hundreds of singers from choirs throughout Southern California, including our very own Cast choir.


THEN: In 1984, the popular "Country Bear Jamboree" in Disneyland Park became the first attraction to receive a holiday makeover. "Country  Bear Christmas Special" featured festive new backdrops, holiday décor and new script.

NOW: Although "Country Bear Christmas Special" ended with the closure of the Country Baer Playhouse in 2001, Guests today enjoy "it's a small world"  Holiday (added in 1997), Haunted Mansion (added in 2001), and Jungle Cruise, a yuletide spin on Jungle Cruise added just last year.


THEN: The precursor to "World of Color," "Luminaria" was a holiday themed nighttime show at Paradise Bay. Taking place during the 2001 season, fountains, projections and fireworks showcased the sights and sounds of the holidays.

NOW: Disney California Adventure Park is filled with holiday fun-from "World of Color-Winter Dreams" to the Disney "Viva Navidad!" celebration in Paradise Gardens. Cars Land features homespun holiday décor, while Buena Vista Street's trimmings represent a nod to the 1920s era, culminating in a dazzling 50-foot Christmas tree in Carthay Circle.


THEN: In 1955, strings of garland framed Main Street, U.S.A., with a wreath in every window, a beautiful tree aglow in Town Square. As one family walked through the nearly empty park, Jack Lindquist (the man who would become Disneyland's first president) overheard a little girl say, "Mom, this really was better than having Santa Claus.: It was then, Jack recalls, he knew that Disneyland was a truly magical place.

"To me this one brief moment proved to be my most meaningful memory at the park because it symbolized what we mean to people," Jack wrote in his 2010 memoir, "In Service to The Mouse." "We are not going to save the world, but if we can make people that happy for a few hours or for a day, then we are doing something worthwhile."

NOW: At no time  is the happiness we create as a resort more heartfelt than it is during the holidays. The magic that each Cast Member creates for every Guest, every time is our greatest-and most treasured-tradition.

Love the Disneyland Resort during the holidays...Dr Lee

CANDLELIGHT...gets ready to shine:

 On the evenings of Dec.6 and 7, Town Square at Disneyland Park will undergo a transformation that is sure to put everyone in the holiday spirit. Members of the Candlelight choir- forming a "living Christmas tree"- will once again shine for the beloved Candlelight Processional and Ceremony.

 In 1958, Walt Disney began Candlelight as a way to show his gratitude to the local community. For more than 50 years, the Candlelight Choir, comprised of Cast Members and community choirs, has sung classical hymns accompanied by the Disneyland Orchestra, while a celebrity guest narrator reads the story of "The First Christmas."

Mid 90's, I was part of the Candlelight Choir, sang for 4 or 5 years....Dr Lee

25 years ago, 'The Little Mermaid'.....

 On Nov.17,1989, Disney's "The Little Mermaid" premiered in theaters, charming audiences with the tale of a young mermaid who dreams of life on land as a human. Based on a Danish fairy tale first published in 1837, the animated movie quickly gained popularity with the score by Alan Menken, who won an Academy Award for best Original Music Score.

 This animated classic has inspired many past and current offerings at the Disneyland Resort. Ariel's Grotto first opened in 1996 at the former site of the Monsanto House of the future in Disneyland Park, allowing Guests to take photos with Ariel at her throne. The location was renamed Triton's Gardens in 2001 when the Ariel's Grotto character dining location opened in Disney California Adventure Park. (In 2008, Triton's Gardens was rethemed to Pixie Hollow.) Ariel continues to greet Guests at Ariel's Grotto restaurant and Fantasy Faire.

 During the recent expansion of Disney California Adventure Park, Ariel got her own attraction, The Little Mermaid- Ariel's Undersea Adventure. And Guests can also see their favorite undersea friends in "Fantasmic", Mickey & the Magical Map," "World of Color" and Mickey's Soundsational Parade."

When my daughters were young, they Loved Ariel and we even had 2 cats, Ariel and Eric....Dr Lee

'Walt Disney's Disneyland' premieres.....

Sixty years ago the first "Walt Disney's Disneyland" episode invited eager viewers to learn more about the new theme park under construction and enjoy stories based on its themed "realms" (as Walt initially referred to the lands).

The show was part of a deal that Walt and his brother Roy struck with ABC to help finance Disneyland. In exchange for financial backing, the brothers agreed to produce Disney programming for the network. Walt took this opportunity to not only create wonderful themed stories that he could tie in to the lands being built in the park but also to give viewers a sneak peek of the fun that would await them. True Life adventures, Man in Space, Davy Crockett and The Mickey Mouse Club would provide much of the story background for Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Frontierland and Fantasyland, respectively.

 "We hope that through our television show that you will join us and take part in the building of Disneyland and that you will find here a place of knowledge and happiness," Walt said in the premiere episode Oct. 27,1954.

The series became "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" in 1961 and continued to change names (and networks) over the 40 years it was on the air. Today, children delight in "The Magical World of Disney Junior," which is inspired by Walt's original program.

as a child, I remember watching "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color"....Dr Lee

Make Halloween a night of delight:

  This Halloween, say "boo" to unsafe conditions. When the grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize, take precautions to make this Halloween not a night of fright but of safe delight.

TRIP OR TREAT?    Make sure your child's costume isn't to long that it is a tripping hazard. According to the National Safety Council, falls are the leading cause of unintentional injuries on Halloween, so select a flame-retardant costume that fits well and consider adding reflective tape or striping for enhanced visibility.

HEALTHY HALLOWEEN:    Before allowing a child to eat Halloween candy, inspect it!!!! The U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests that adults should inspect commercially wrapped treats for signs of tampering, such as an unusual appearance or discoloration, tiny pinholes or tears in wrappers and throw away anything that looks suspicious. Instruct your child not to eat any candy until you've inspected it together.

HAPPY HAUNTS:    When trick-or-treating, teach your kids to only travel in familiar areas along an established route and to stop only at well-lit houses or apartments. Before going out, designate a meeting location and time, and make sure you have a way to communicate with your child.

Happy Halloween...Dr Lee

Oswald The Lucky Rabbit:

 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, one of Walt Disney's earliest cartoon stars, has made his way off the page and into sunny Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park. Over the past couple of years, Guests have been donning rabbit ear hats and enjoying Oswald ice cream sundaes at Clarabelle's. Now, Guests can meet the lucky rabbit himself.

 Oswald made his film debut Sept. 5,1927, in the cartoon short "Trolley Troubles". Walt went on to produce 26 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit shorts before losing the rights to the character in 1928. It was that experience that inspired the creation of Mickey Mouse-and the rest is history. Oswald finally returned to the Disney family in 2006 and made his first Disney parks appearance earlier this year at Tokyo DisneySea.

 Oswald is scheduled to make appearances from park open to 7 p.m. daily between the entrance turnstiles and Hyperion Bridge.

A "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" Day:

 On July 17, 1989, Splash Mountain opened at Disneyland, joining the park's other famous mountain attractions, Matterhorn Bobsleds,Space Mountain and Big Thunder Railroad. Peaking at 87 feet tall, the attraction  features characters from the animated sequences of Walt Disney's classic film "Song of the South."

The film comes to life as Guests board a hollowed-out log vehicle to join the clever Brer Rabbit on his search for a "Laughin Place," encountering trouble with Brer Bear and  Brer Fox along the way. Critters serenade the travelers  with songs from the film as the log floats downstream, eventually careening five stories down Chick-A-Pin Hill and splashing into Briar Patch.

The attraction's finale reminds Brer Rabbit and Guests about the comforts of home and guarantees a " Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah"day. The showboat in the finale was also the largest animated prop at the time, measuring 50 feet wide and 30 feet high.

 Many of the 100 Audio-Animatronics figures were repurposed from the America Sings attraction, which closed in 1988.

 The addition of Splash Mountain-along with a new restaurant, Harbor Galley, and two new shops- capped a project to transform the land, formerly known as Bear Country, into Critter Country.

Inside the Ontario warehouse:

 Stepping into the Ontario warehouse is like walking into a small town with rows of shelves towering above like tall buildings. The sounds of beeping horns fill the air, as Cast Members use this "language" to signal their movements. The warehousing process runs so efficiently, it seems choreographed, which is essential since the Ontario warehouse team sends full truckloads to the resort three to six times  daily. This 285,000 square-foot warehouse  also supports Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, and Disney Cruise Line on the West Coast.

In addition to the merchandise items and operational supplies stored, the warehouse also hosts items that might seem unconventional. Hundreds of attraction tooling and mold materials are stored here, in the event that they are needed for future reference.

The 48 Cast Members who work at the Ontario warehouse take great pride in what they do, agreeing that a devotion to teamwork leads to their team's success.

Located some 30 miles from the Disneyland Resort, as soon as a product is sold in the Disneyland Resort, the replenishment process is triggered, notifying  the team on when and which items need to be shipped to Anahiem.

The Distribution Services Cast Members load those items onto trailers and deliver the shipments to Building 100 at the Disneyland Resort.

Next, a team prepares to distribute the items throughout the Disneyland Resort. Scanners linked to a database system tell cast Members what items should be "picked" and where the should go. Teams gather these items by filling red totes and loading them onto a conveyor belt system. The technology is so precise that the system knows exactly how many units will fill one tote and how much it should weight when full, leading to greater efficiency and accuracy. Once items arrive at their ultimate destination, Cast Members prepare the items-the stage where the products ultimalely make their way to the Guest.

Love it....Dr Lee

Historyand Heritage:

 What could you accomplish in 361 days!!!

 Walt Disney built a theme park????

That's right-it took less than a year from time bulldozers first arrived at the orange groves in Anaheim to the day the first Guests were welcomed at the Main Entrance of Disneyland.

 July 21,1954 (Dr Lee was 2 years,1 month and 1 day old).....
   The first trees were cleared from the property Walt Disney purchased. the main work involved removing citrus trees and moving 11 houses.

August 1954...
  Actual earth-moving began, but there was no official groundbreaking ceremony. The McNeil Construction Company of Los Angeles, the lowest of 8 bidders, was awarded the construction contract, which included excavation for a lake , rivers and a bed for railroad track, installation of all underground utilities and a railroad overpass to serve as the entrance to the park.

 Also in August, a 50-foot camera was installed in the center of the hub to record construction. In addition, a merry-go-around was purchased in Toronto. After it was shipped to California, it was altered to a four-abreast configuration, and all standing horses were converted to jumpers.

 The first "Disneyland" television series episode debuted; later episodes included construction progress updates.

 Major companies committed to participation in Disneyland, including Santa Fe, Bekins, U.S. Time, Chicken of the Sea, ABC, Carnation, TWA, and American Motors.

December 1954...
 Earth work, fencing, water mains, gas lines and telephone conduits neared completion. At this time, the total staff consisted of 21 permanent cast members and five consultants (excluding contractors.)

January 1955...
 Construction began on Tomorrowland. Originally not planned to open with the rest of the park, Walt changed his mind and included Tomorrowland as part of opening day. He also announced plans to build a hotel on West Street. The Disneyland Hotel was initially owned and operated by the Wrather Corp.

May 1955...
 The first orientation program was conducted by Van France, who founded Disney University and was later named a Disney Legend. The term "We Create Happiness" was rolled out- and is still used today.

July 17, 1955...
 Opening Day (Invitational Press Preview); the park opened to the general public the following day.

Opening day Facts & Figures....

 5, number of lands(Main Street, U.S.A., Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Adventureland and Frontierland.)

Fun Facts:

Disneyland opened July 17,1953, with 18 major attractions. Today, there are more than 60 adventures and attractions.

From groundbreaking to opening day, Disneyland was built in 365 days.

Well over 600 million guests have passed through the gates of Disneyland since opening day, including 7 U.S. presidents and many other prominent 20th century dignitaries and celebrities.

Having fun is hungry and thirsty work. Every year, Guests at the Disneyland Resort consume an estimated 3 million hamburgers, 2 million hot dogs, 6.5 million orders of French fries, 1.6 million servings of popcorn, 3.2 million servings of ice cream, 1.9 million gallons of soft drinks and 2.8 million churros.

Disneyland Park does not sell chewing gum, because Walt Disney wanted to keep the park clean and prevent Guests from being inconvenienced by stepping in a gooey mess.

Every Disneyland Cast Member wears a name tag, even the draft horses that pull the trolleys up and down Main Street, U.S.A.

Disneyland Resort dresses approximately 21,000 Cast Members, and also maintains costumes for more than 650 Audio-Animatronics figures.

Keeping Disneyland Park clean is no small task. Cast Members use 1,000 brooms, 500 dust pans and 3,000 mops a year to keep the park looking its best, and collects approximately30 tons of trash during a busy day-about 12 million pounds annually. The streets of Disneyland are washed and steamed-cleaned after closing each day.

Not all of the refuse collected in the resort goes to the landfill. Every year, Disneyland Park recycles approximately 4.1 million pounds of cardboard; 1.3 million pounds of green waste; 370,000 pounds of office paper; 361,260 pounds of glass bottles;274,280 pounds of plastic bottles; and 17,240 pounds of aluminum cans.

More than 5,000 gallons of paint are used each year to keep Disneyland looking fresh and better-than-new.

Disneyland has 10 bodies of water, which hold nearly 20 million gallons of water.

The King Arthur Carrousel has 68 horses. No two are alike and they all move.

Mickey Mouse not the original choice for a name, originally he was to be named Mortimer.

Walt Disney did not allow his male Cast members to have mustaches.
 When the moat around Sleeping Beauty's castle was dredged, all the money recovered  was given to charity.

Richard Nixon's famous "I am not a crook" speech was given at Disneyland. He and Walt Disney were good friends. The Burbank Studio is held up on the hands of statues of the seven dwarfs. The studio was built with the proceeds from Snow White.

ABC once owned shares in Disneyland very early on, now Disney owns ABC.

Fun Fact....

Dr Lee is needed inside Le Salon Nouveau!

There is little doubt that Club 33 simply isn't the same without 'The Good Doctor' tending bar. With the opening of Le Salon Nouveau, aka The Jazz Lounge, we'll miss Dr. Lee even more!

Fun fact....

Did you know that Doritos were invented in Frontierland at the Frito-Lay Mexican food location shortly after the park opened????

 The location started cutting up the extra tortillas into triangles, frying them and serving them to guests. The snack was such a hit, Frito-Lay started selling them across the country in 1966.

Love them Doritos....Dr Lee

History and Heritage:

  A Day to celebrate Donald Duck:

 June is a quack-tacular month for Donald Duck, who is celebrating 80 years as Mickey Mouse's short-tempered, feathered friend.

 By 1934, Mickey Mouse had become a role model of positivity, so Walt Disney decided a new character was needed to do what the little, heroic mouse could not. It was determined that Donald Duck would fit the bill. This lovable character was created with a fiery personality but a genuinely good heart. On June 9,1934, he made his debut in a Silly Symphony cartoon titled "The Wise Little Hen."

 Donald Duck's signature sound is credited to Clarence Nash, who was hired by Walt to do animal sounds. Nash imitated a baby goat during his portrayal of a frightened young girl's recitation of "Mary Had a Little Lamb"-leading Walt to declare,"That's our talking duck!!!"

 The Walt Disney Company celebrated 50 years of Donald Duck with a grand affair in 1984. The yearlong celebration included a television special   hosted by Dick Van Dyke and a cross-country tour with Mr. Duck himself, Clarence Nash. One of the celebration's highlights was the duckling march at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort, which featured a parade of 60 ducklings wearing silly hats down Main Street, U.S.A.

According to Carl Barks, a former Disney Studio illustrator and comic book creator, Donald 's home is in Duckburg, Calisota. However, you can find his boat, Miss Daisy, docked in Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland Park.

Doc McStuffins visits Disney California Adventure Park starting May 5th:

 Disney Junior fans are in for a treat this summer!! "Doc" McStuffins  will be making special appearances at Disney California Adventure Park for a limited time beginning May 5 thru the end of July. Guests will be able to meet her in Hollywood Land near "Disney Junior- Live on Stage!"

 Since debuting in 2012, "Doc McStuffins" has become one of the most popular shows on Disney Junior. Doc is a nurturing, 6-year-old girl who can talk to the stuffed animals and toys she cares for in her playhouse clinic, diagnosing their "ouchies" with help from her mom (a real doctor) and her "Big Book of Boo Boos." The acclaimed, Emmy-nominated series airs daily on Disney Channel and Disney Junior.

History and Heritage:

On May 4,2004, a Hollywood-style premiere was thrown at Disney California Adventure Park to celebrate the debut of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. At the event, held on the eve of the attraction's official opening, the red carpet was rolled out for celebrities such as Melissa Joan Hart and David Hasselhoff.

Guest of honor Carol Serling, widow of "The Twilight Zone" TV series creator Rod Serling, spoke at a brief ceremony.

 "Rod would surely be delighted to know that 'The Twilight Zone' lives on in the hearts of so many fans," she said. "And he would be thrilled to know that his beloved 'fifth dimension' has been brought to life in such an exciting way."

 Guests visiting the Hollywood Tower Hotel learn that, on a stormy Halloween night in 1939, five unlucky hotel guests mysteriously disappeared during a doomed elevator ride and were never seem again. Since that dreadful night, the hotel has remained abandoned-until now. A maintenance service elevator awaits those brave enough to journey to another realm of sight and sound. Shrieks and screams fill the elevator as it free falls 13 floors.

 Looming 183 feet above the ground, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is the tallest attraction at the Disneyland Resort. A must-experience attraction when it opened, it still casts a large shadow for Guests today.

Rock around the clock:

 Get ready for an all-night summer kickoff:

 Memorial Day weekend is almost here, and Disney Parks is starting it right with a character-filled all-day, all-night celebration. "Rock Your Disney Side: 24-hours" welcomes summer with non-stop party at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, from 6 a.m. on May 23 to 6a.m. on May 24. the bicoastal event is happening concurrently at Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney Resort. This is the 3rd year 24-hour event and each year it gets bigger and better.

 And this party comes with a special invitation: Guests can show their Disney side by dressing as their favorite Disney hero or villain. Along with 24 straight hours to enjoy favorite attractions and entertainment across both parks, some all-time favorite characters will be making rare meet-and-greet appearances throughout the event. Social media is a huge part of the celebration; Guests will find specially themed photo locations around the parks, and are encouraged to share their experiences and photos using the hashtag #DisneySide.

 Speaking of heroes and villains, Walt Disney Pictures' "Maleficent"- in theaters May 30- comes out shortly after this celebration. All Guests will receive a commemorative button celebrating the film's release, and a few other event touches will feature the famously pointy-horned foe.

Those too bashful to come in costume can still look ready to roll in a "Rock Your Disney Side" T-shirt, pullover fleece sweatshirt or ear hat, available at park merchandise locations during the event. A special glow baton that's perfect for brightening up the night will also be available.

sounds fun...Dr Lee

History & Heritage:

 Canoeing through the wild frontier:

 On May 19,1971, the popular summertime canoe attraction, Indian War Canoes, reopened as Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes at Disneyland.

 Indian War Canoes first opened on July 4,1956, as part of Frontierland"s Indian Village expansion. Two authentic Indian guides were aboard every canoe, leading Guests on an exciting journey around the island and past Cascade Peak.

 The Indian Village closed in 1971 to make way for Bear Country, prompting the new theme based on the legendary frontiersman known as the "King of the Wild Frontier." Guests have been paddling along the Rivers of America with frontier explorer guides ever since.

 In both of its forms, the canoes are the only single-location attraction, besides the Disneyland Railroad, to reside in three different lands-Frontierland, Bear Country and Critter Country-without being moved.

These 35-foot long canoes have made appearances in other Disney parks as well. The attraction can still be found in Tokyo Disneyland as the Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes and, for a short time, both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Paris had their own versions.

remember watching the canoes from Club 33 in the morning hours setting up the bar...Dr Lee

 Avoid Distractions:

  Personal safety should be the first thought that guides your decisions. Be safety smart means avoiding distractions, especially while operating a vehicle. Here are a few important reminders to help you stay safe.

1...DON'T TEXT WHILE DRIVING... It is against the law in California,to send, read or compose text messages while driving. Currently, 9 states have laws banning texting while driving.

2...SLOW DOWN, "ARRIVE ALIVE,"... take the time to do tasks properly. Travel and work at a safe pace to reduce the risk of an accident. Obey all traffic signs when operating your vehicle.

3... PAY ATTENTION... It is easy to become sidetracked and distracted. Always focus on what you are doing, where you are going and what's happening around you.


 80% of Californians ranked cell phone use, texting and talking,as the most serious distractuions for drivers? People not getting enough rest, driving to long is another great concern.

remember what Dr Lee says..."Arrive Alive!!!"

History and Heritage:

 Down the rabbit hole;

 On April 13,1984, the newly refurbished Alice in Wonderland reopened to the public with and additional 50 feet of track, making it the longest dark attraction at Disneyland. A manic Mad Hatter emceed the event and White Rabbit-running late as usual- cut the ribbon. The attraction takes Guests down the rabbit hole to follow Alice through the fanciful world of Wonderland. Along the way Guests encounter a talking doornob, a Hookah-smoking Caterpillar and a rather cranky Queen of Hearts. Keen-eyed Guests might spot a hidden Mickey made of splattered paint in the rose garden.

Remember it's opening day...Dr Lee

Saying goodbye to Disney Legend Milt Albright:

April 22,earth day!!!!!

Last year, 311,873,713 pounds of material was recycled at the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts- roughly the weight of 891,068 Dumbo flying elephant attraction vehicles. With results like this, it's important that we continue to promote programs, policies and best practices to help conserve the natural world and increase environmental awareness.

 In 2013,Disneyland showed how we went outside and connected with nature. Earth Month 2014 is the perfect time to take the next step and help protect nature for future generations. Here are some of the ways Disneyland Resort Cast Members have been making a difference.

1...Food Scraps Diversion....59 Food and Beverage locations at the Disneyland Resort have been capturing seven tons of food scraps per day, which are turned into animal feed.  Roughly the weight of an Indiana Jones Adventure attraction vehicle in food scraps each day.

2...Electric Vehicle Charging... A total of 30 ChargePoint electric vehicle charging ports were installed in the Mickey & Friends and Team Disney Anahiem parking structures. The Disneyland Resort now has one of the largest collections of privately owned, publicly visited EV charging stations in Southern California.

3...Cardboard Recycling... Recycling at the Disneyland Resort has been expanded to include all types cardboard, instead of only corrugated. This has resulted in a 23 percent increase in loose cardboard recycling.

4...Temperature Set Points... Temperature set points ensure we are not overheating or cooling all of our indoor spaces- both onstage and backstage. Our commitment to these set points has helped contribute to a 10.7 percent reduction in electricity use for the resort since 2006, despite higher attendance, hotel occupancy and longer operating hours for our parks.

5...Goodwill Partnership... Over the past year, the Disneyland Resort expanded our partnership with Goodwill by donating items such as used Cast Member shoes, a variety of costumes and mattresses from our resort hotels.

6...Circle D Composting... The resort saw a 72 percent increase in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 in composting at Circle D with the addition of coffee grouds from resort restaurants and laundry lint from the Disneyland Hotel industrial dyers.

Did you know????

1... The average Californian uses about 192 gallons of water a day?

2...Turn water off when brushing teeth or shaving?

3...Soak pot and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape them clean?

4...Use the washing machine and dishwasher only when full?

5...Water outdoor plants at night to prevent evaporation and install drip tubing instad of sprinklers?

6...Use only the water you need, do not leave the faucet runnung unnecessarily?

Did you know this about Dr Lee at Club 33...

 Back about 1992, I started recycling all glass bottles at my location, Club 33 bar. With the blessings of my then manager, Tom, I was given 2 big yellow bins for behind the bar. As drinks were made or poured,all glass was then place inside these bins. In the mid 80's, I still remember throwing away daily large amounts of glass mixed with food waste.This recycling project increased my closing daily duties,and many a bartender at night wasn't fond of this added duty.
 To this day ,I have been told it still continues.Habits are hard to change......Dr Lee

Hold on to your hats and glasses:

 The wildest ride in the wilderness is back!!!!!

 Almost 35 years ago the abandoned mines of Big Thunder Mountain opened, inviting Guests on a spirited journey through "the wildest ride in the wilderness." After being closed for a major refurbishment over the past 14 months, the runaway mine train attractionis now back on track (a brand new one!!) to the delight of Guests and Cast alike.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad first opened in 1979, so it was time for a major rebuild with all-new track, trains,lighting, audio and show elements that needed upgrading. The town of Rainbow Ridge, a Frontierland staple dating back to the 1956 Rainbow Caverns Mine Train attraction, was completely rebuilt with the original blueprints and artifacts.

The attraction officially reopened to guests on March 17, Cast Members had an opportunity to ride during a test-and-adjust period in late February and early March.

 The refurbishment project- a partnership between the Disneyland Resort Facility Asset Management team and Walt Disney Imagineering- required 46 months of planning and coordination to replace a half-mile of track, miles of electrical wire and tens of thousands of square feet of rockwork. The project included the expansion of the two unloading areas- as well as a new exit ramp that has greatly improved accessibility for Guests with disabilities. The expansion has reduced congestion on the platforms to improve efficiency while Guests are exiting the vehicles.

 There are new surprises on the attraction, too. We can't reveal what happens when Guests reach the dynamite, but let's just say they are guaranteed to have a blast!!!!!!


1...The original Rainbow Caverns Mine Train attraction (later called Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland) transported Guests around Frontierland from 1956 to 1977.

2...Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was named after one of the two waterfalls found in the original Rainbow Caverns Mine Train attraction,"Big Thunder" and "Little Thunder."

3...Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah and its unique "hoodoos" inspired the look of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

4...More than 230 tons of gold ore were trucked to Disneyland from Silver Queen Mine in the Mojave Dessert.

5...A century-old stamp mill and other mining gear placed throughout the attraction were sourced from abondoned mines in Nevada, Colorado, Minnesota and Wyoming.

6...The sounds of big thunder trains were mixed into the mine chase sequence in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Legend of Big Thunder!!!!!

 Whispers of a supernatural force deep within Big Thunder Mountain were soon forgotten when a prospector discovered gold on its slopes in the late 1860s. The Big Thunder Mountain Mining Company staked its claim,but as prospectors began to dig deeper into the mountain's core with the help of dynamite and explosives, a strange force was awakened. Miners began hearing ghostly sounds and equipment mysteriously failed. When trains began rolling into the station with no human hand at the control, miners soon left in droves.

 Big Thunder Mountain Mining remains in operation with only a few daring souls left. However, those brave enough to board a driver-less mine train may find more than gold in the mountain- they'll discover the wildest ride in the wildness.

sounds like fun to me...Dr Lee

Honk your horn for No. 53!!!!

 On March 13,1969, Herbie, the 1963 Volkswagen racing Beetle, drove his way into our hearts in the film "The Love Bug." Ten days later, 101 Guest-decorated Beetles made their way down Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland on "Love Bug" Day to celebrate the film's release.

 The cars were judged in the categories of most psychedelic, toylike, comical and best personality. Morton and Barbara Allen of Studio City took top honors and won a brand new 1969 Volkswagen Beetle. Other prizes included RCA portable color TV's, Kodak Super-8 movie cameras and projectors, and new Polaroid cameras.

 The live-action film followed the story of Herbie, a pearl white car with a mind of its own and distinguished by red and blue racing strips and No. 53 on its doors. The comedy starred Dean Jones, Michele Lee and Bubby Hackett. Herbie has starred in a TV series and six films, including the most recent "Herbie: Fully Loaded" in 2005 starring Lindsay Lohan.

As a kid, I remember going to the movies to watch "Herbie The Love Bug," ...Dr Lee

History and Heritage

 The Winter Games-with the Disney touch.

 On Febuary 18,1960, the Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley, California, kicked off with an opening ceremony that had the Disney touch. Literally!!

Walt Disney served as chairman of the Pageantry Committee for the 1960 Winter Games, overseeing the opening and closing ceremonies, entertainment, the torch relay, publicity and more. Walt Disney enlisted the help of a number of his colleagues and friends, including Disney Legend and artist John Hench, who designed the 79-foot Tower of Nations with 30 aluminum crests representing the participating nations. This also became the site for medal ceremonies, marking the first time these ceremonies were open to the public. John Hench also designed a new look for the Olympic torch, a form still used today.

 The 1960 Games were also the first to be nationally televised.The opening ceremony included 5,000 participants, 1,285 instruments and 2,645 voices from 52 California and Nevada high school bands and even daytime fireworks, also considered a first. Walt Disney even made sure the athletes were entertained. One evening, the entire cast of the Golden Horseshoe Revue from Disneyland performed for the Olympians.


Sponsorships for the 1960 Winter Games included 30 flagpoles, which were sold at $500-$600 each and included a plaque signed by Walt Disney. Today, two of these poles can be  found at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, Calfornia.
