Disneyland And Imagineering Part 13

Author: K
Posted: July 14, 2017

Disneyland, the idea, came from the mind of Walt Disney, but Disneyland, the theme park, was a collaborative effort. It took a great many men and women to create it. Since all men are created equal, everyone who contributed should be credited. I've known about C.V. Wood for many years, and although he was not an Imagineer, he was a land developer who made significant contributions in terms of sales and management for the park during construction. His position was technically above Joe Fowler's, although Fowler did confer with Disney personally on a regular basis. Not important in the

A Sprinkle Of Pixie Dust

Author: Cal Jones
Posted: July 14, 2017

"Fantasyland" is said to be Walt Disney's favorite Land. And it's tough to blame him. "Sleeping Beauty Castle" welcomes you, as both the main entrance and park icon. "King Arthur Carrousel" was built in 1875 and operated in Ontario, Canada from 1922 until 1955 when it was relocated to Disneyland. Until 1975, only one horse was white, and now all of them are. Merlin hosted a ceremony that determined which guest could pull the sword from the stone and become king for the day while King Arthur was on vacation. This lasted until 2006. Walt got the idea for the park while watching his daughters

Fantasmic Dining Reservations Open

Posted: July 14, 2017

Perhaps you've visited a certain theme park located at 1313 Disneyland Drive in Anaheim over the last few months with a specific, sparkly-eyed goal in mind: Be dazzled, once again, by the Main Street Electrical Parade. The limited-time experience, which has wended its way through Disneyland Park since January 2017, at least on this particular go-around, came with something a bit tantalizing to those hoping to A) do dinner at the theme park and B) score a solid viewing area for the parade: The chance to book a dining package. Of course, dining packages and special events at the park

Disneyland Resort Eliminates Use Of Hand Stamp For Re-Entry Into Its Theme Parks

Posted: July 14, 2017

The longtime act of getting a hand stamp when exiting Disneyland has disappeared into yesterland. Disneyland Resort eliminated the stamps Sunday, July 9, now taking a photo of everyone who enters the theme park with an admission ticket. For several years, those with annual passes have not needed hand stamps, as their photo was on file. The requirement for photos was added to multi-day tickets, and now it will be the same policy for all admission tickets, according to park officials. The stamp, visible only under ultra-violet light, had a different shape or word each day, usually related to a Disney character. As photo technology connected to the passes advanced, the parks started phasing out the need for visitors to re-enter a park - though some liked to get them anyway. Because some park-goers would try to duplicate the stamps - Disneyland Resort never announced which character was used each day. For many years, a

Disneyland Will Remove Bride Auction Scene From Pirates Of The Caribbean Ride

Posted: July 5, 2017

Disneyland has plans to make changes to their classic "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride by removing the bride auction scene. The ride, which first opened in 1967, features a redheaded woman standing on what appears to be an auction block with a banner in the background that reads: "AUCTION: Take a Wench for a Bride" while pirates shout, "We wants the redhead!" Kathy Mangum, SVP, Atlantic Region Executive of Walt Disney Imagineering said the bride auction scene will come to an end by next year in a statement on Disney's blog. "A familiar character is playing a new role joining

Disneyland To Halt Wench Sale On Pirates Of The Caribbean Ride

Posted: July 5, 2017

Disney will remove the infamous "bride auction" scene from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland next year, the company announced on Thursday. During the planned ride refurbishment, Disney will alter the roles of the auctioneer, the redhead woman and other characters participating in the "Auction: Take a Wench for a Bride" scene. In the current scene, the redhead character is the prize of the auction. According to Disney, the redhead is holding a rifle and will be a "plundering pirate" in the new scene. In the official announcement, Disney

Disneyland Railroad Starts Testing Trains On Its New Route

Posted: July 5, 2017

The rails were singing again with the sounds of whistles and bells as engineers and conductors started testing trains on the new route for the Disneyland Railroad. The route for the opening day attraction underwent a major modification in the Frontierland area to make room for the 14-acre "Star Wars" land project. Now the route skirts the edge of the shortened Rivers of America, along the Big Thunder Trail, and then makes a sharp left-hand turn to head for Mickey's Toontown Station in Fantasyland. Because it is such a major change to the rail line's route, park officials wanted

Weird World Of Disneyland

Posted: July 2, 2017

Disney theme parks really are Mickey Mouse at times, a new thread for employees of the entertainment giant reveals. Reddit user voxangelikus asked: "Disneyworld/land employees, what is the most bizarre thing you've seen at work?" Some of the employees confessions are downright shocking. Alice in Wonderland and Minnie Mouse as chainsmokers? Snow White engaged in a torrid love triangle? But it isn't just the fabled Disney roster of frogs, princesses, dwarves and demons that caught workers' attention. One employee revealed he saw a baby dangled from a ride for a foolish photo op. Here are some of the highlights: "My mom worked at Disneyland in the 1970s. She went in the bathroom once and one of the three little pigs was on his back rolling around and the Big Bad Wolf was standing over him yelling, "You stay away from her!' Both had a thing for Snow White." "The day you're backstage and see Minnie

New Maxpass Is Designed To Save You Time But Not Necessarily Money

Posted: July 2, 2017

Times are certainly changing in Disneyland. The park is testing out a new process for its Fastpass system, which requires park-goers to scan their annual pass or park ticket to gain access to the Fastpass line instead of using a separate ticket stub as their actual Fastpass. And soon, Disney will be launching Maxpass, another time-saving initiative for park-goers. Disneyland already has the well-known Fastpass system in place, which allows guests to reserve a return time for a certain attraction to allow guests to "wait in line" while enjoying other shows and attractions. Guests can reserve one attraction at a time, day-of only. Currently, guests go to kiosks and get the paper ticket with the return time. A Disney representative said that after the launch of Disney Maxpass, that kiosk system remains the same. "Disney MaxPass is a product available via the Disneyland app for $10 per ticket, per day, that will let you get

Man Visits Disneyland For 2000th Straight Day

Posted: July 2, 2017

He just may be the happiest man at the Happiest Place on Earth. Huntington Beach resident Jeff Reitz visited Disneyland Thursday-- for the 2000th day straight! Fox 11 was there as Reitz walked through the turnstiles Thursday morning marking the feat that's an unofficial record at the Anaheim park. The Air Force veteran says the feat will probably land him a Guinness World Record, something that wasn't originally the plan. Reitz got an annual pass as a gift when he was unemployed. He used in every single day in 2012. Now, he's fully employed, but still visits the park every single day. 2000 straight days at the park-- or 5 and a half years! And he's got the parking tickets to prove it. "It's been a positive, it's been a motivator, it's been my workout gym. This past year I've lost about 40 lbs." Reitz says. Reitz pays for it all with an annual pass. He's got quite the following on social media, and

Disneyland Changing Its Fastpass To Electronic System To Skip The Long Lines

Posted: July 2, 2017

Fastpasses are changing fast at the Disneyland Resort. The resort started testing its new Fastpass system this week. No longer will visitors receive a printed Fastpass that they then give to cast members at an attraction. Instead, the new system requires visitors to have their admission ticket or annual pass scanned at the attraction at their appointed Fastpass time. The paper Fastpass tickets visitors received for the various attractions are being phased out and replaced. Fastpass machine for attractions, such as the Matterhorn Bobsleds or Radiator Springs Racers, will still

Pirates Lair On Tom Sawyer Island Reopens

Posted: June 24, 2017

Rafts were making the journey with visitors again from the mainland at Disneyland to Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island. The island was closed in early 2016 as the park worked on shortening the route for the Rivers of America in Frontierland to make room for the 14-acre "Star Wars" land project. In May of 2017, the river was refilled with water, and final preparation began to reopen the island. With work complete, Disneyland opened it Friday, June 16, including a visit by Captain Jack Sparrow. Much of the attractions on the island remain the same including "Dead Man's
