National Treasure and new sequel Book of Secrets were produced by Disney - and Cage is hoping they will grant him his wish.

California safety inspectors on Friday said they have closed Disneyland's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride for at least two weeks to investigate a Thursday evening accident, the roller coaster's third in less than a year. Three passengers were injured and sent to the hospital after two trains on the Western train-style ride collided in the loading area Thursday evening, said Dean Fryer, a spokesman for ...

[*This article has been edited non-Disneyland Info removed--RLM*] Disneyland It's not surprising that the 1955 breakthrough occurred in Los Angeles. It grew out of the resident movie industry's capabilities and the special kind of ingenuity that for years had gone into inventing convincing effects for the camera. The park's chief innovator, Walt Disney, was a movie man. His contribution was the ...

It's when she's perched at the top of a five-storey watery descent that my daughter and I both have epiphanies. In the nanosecond before descent, she realises just how profoundly angry a little girl can possibly be with her dad and I realise that she will still get that angry despite me bringing her to Disneyland. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Taking our seats on Disneyland's famous Splash ...

Last week, the California Supreme Court decided that the "Indiana Jones" amusement park ride at Disneyland was like a city bus. It therefore held that Disneyland owed the duty of "utmost care" of a common carrier to the passengers on the ride. As I will argue below, the majority opinion in the case is a telling example of bad common law reasoning. The Facts of the Case, the Plaintiff's ...

Earlier in the year, I wrote an article for DLDHistory.com comparing the Alice in Wonderland ride in Disneyland to Alice's Wonderland at Pleasure Beach Blackpool (the most visited theme park in the United Kingdom).

The description in the Disneyland Paris park map for Big Thunder Mountain tells you that riders will "Hurl through an abandoned gold mine at breathtaking speed aboard a runaway mine train!" making this attraction one of only two within this park to have a blurb ending in an exclamation mark. (The other is Star Tours). Although I do not necessarily believe that the mine is supposed to be abandoned ...
