Spicy Milk Is Out Of This Galaxy

FLYING THE MILLENNIUM FALCON... through a space field that's absolutely crowded with huge asteroids? It's an experience that can really build up a person's thirst. As can dealing with a throng of testy droids, or a broken Landspeeder, or any of the issues a member of the Resistance regularly has to face. But there are ways to find a bit of refreshment, the sort of sippable treat that has a bit of spice, the sort of spice that adds zing to your spacebound adventures. And for people calling upon

Disney Imagineers Seek To Inspire The Next Generation Of Theme Park Dreamers And Builders

Dreaming up a roller coaster that wraps around a mountain or a theme park land set in a galaxy far, far away is a puzzle that can only be solved with a mix of creativity and technical know-how. “It becomes this problem-solving exercise of how do we do this?” Walt Disney Imagineering executive creative director John Larena said. “And then when we figure out how to do it, how do we keep it invisible to everybody else? How do we make the magic?” Imagineering recently hosted a panel

Remembering Bob Matheison

Bob Matheison was fully present in everything he did, whether it was developing a new Disney theme park in Florida; announcing bowl games in Orlando or his children 's high school football games; raising Scottish Highland cattle at his North Carolina ranch; or spending quality time with his wife, children and grandchildren. As friends and family shared stories of their relationships with Matheison - following his sudden death Jan. 5 at age 85 - their respect for him was consistent: he was

45 Surprising Secrets About Disneyland

It's been 45 years since Disney Parks first took intrepid thrill seekers into the darkest corners of outer space. We're talking, of course, about Space Mountain. And while it's true that the iconic indoor roller coaster opened first at Walt Disney World in Florida on January 15, 1975, did you know that it was first dreamed up, at the request of Walt Disney himself, by designer John Hench (whose fingerprints were all over the original Tomorrowland) in 1964?

Events And Attractions Coming In 2020

Walt Disney famously said that Disneyland would never be finished as long as there was imagination. Clearly, there has been no lack of imagination, as the California theme park, and the many Disney Parks that followed it, have continued to update and change over time. This means that even if you visit a place like Disneyland Resort every year, there will almost always be something new to see or do. 2020 will be no exception. Whether you're planning your first trip ever to Disneyland, or

A Guest Literally Pulled The Sword Excalibur From The Stone

Legend tells of the Sword in the Stone, a weapon that can only be pulled from its resting place by the new king. For decades that sword has rested in front of King Arthur's Carousel at Disneyland, and now, it appears we have a new leader, because somebody apparently pulled the sword from the stone.
