  1. Royal Dano's Return to the Hall of Presidents

    In an interview during the Hall of Presidents press event, Kathy Rogers, senior show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, discussed the possibility of using Royal Dano's voice again in the revised Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln show coming to Disneyland.

  2. Disney's "A Christmas Carol" Train: Oakland/SF Station

    Date: June 28; location: Oakland; weather: sunny and hot, but not too bad; crowds, not so bad!

    Disney changed the station from Redwood City to Oakland -- it made it much easier for me to get us there, as I am so much more familiar with all the streets and freeways.

  5. Walt Disney World to test out new Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party

    Apparently, Disney will be testing a new Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party in the Magic Kingdom starting on Tuesday.

    The test will run from June 23 through Saturday, August 29, "near" the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station. Our guess is that it probably will be in the Noodle Station's lower seating area and possibly the middle level, as well.
