Random Disneyland and Walt Disney World tidbits too time-sensitive or inconsequential to cram into a formal article.

  1. Big Stink with Tink

    Big news breaking out of Disneyland? Well, then you can be sure you didn't hear it from Resort president Ed Grier. After a year and nine months on the job, the tight-lipped exec has never made a major announcement that everyone in the audience didn't already know about before he opened his mouth.

    So the earth all but came to a rotational halt yesterday afternoon when, during a speech to a business group, Grier let slip that a Tinker Bell attraction would be coming to Disneyland in ...

  2. Sleeping Beauty May Remain in Deep Freeze

    The Snow White exhibit in the lobby of DCA's animation building is scheduled to vanish April 27, but don't expect a replacement until the fall—if ever.
    The hope was that the 120-piece exhibit of rare animation art would increase attendance at the facility. Instead, according to one source, attendance actually dropped.
    The animation building's biggest draw, you see, has never been its interactive displays, but rather its expansive, air-conditioned lobby. "Guests missed the open ...

    Hot on the heels of its earliest sell-out yet, this Sunday's Skipper Stand-Up Show has added a second performance.
    All tickets are gone for the 7 p.m. performance, featuring past and present Jungle Cruise skippers doing stand-up comedy April 6 at the Maverick Theater in Fullerton, Ca.
    So, a second show has been added that night for 9:30 p.m. Tickets are still just $10. See SkipperStandUp.com for reservations and more info.

  5. Carrousel: Soft Reopening

    Yesterday, April 2, a freshly-spruced-up King Arthur Carrousel had a soft opening following a near-seven week refurbishment–its most extensive in five years. The rehab is officially scheduled to last until tomorrow.

    In addition to a full refinishing, work reportedly was also performed on Doubloon, the gold-toothed horse, whose crankshaft (according to one cast member) cracked under the weight of one portly passenger.

    Still absent is the lead horse, Jingles, which will ...
