...The big news out of Disneyland yesterday was the announcement of three important premiere dates. Mickey's Soundsational Parade debuts on May 27th, Memorial Day weekend. Disneyland's rebooted Star Tours ride and Ariel's Undersea Adventure at California Adventure both open on June 3rd. Perhaps Disney is hoping to be able to divide and conquer the crowds?
...I was glad to hear that King Triton, who vacated Disneyland when Pixie Hollow moved in, is going to be part of the building decor at Ariel's Undersea Adventure.
...Jim Korkis remembers the late Bill Justice at MousePlanet.
...California Adventure has a new -- very busy! -- logo.
...Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs recently gave a report at an investor conference. MousePlanet analyzes some of his remarks and what they could mean for the future.
...There's a nice selection of Disneyland and California Adventure photos at MiceChat's In the Parks, and the Disney Food Blog also has a good story on Disneyland's Family Fun Weekend celebrating Mardi Gras. I hope to head out to Disneyland for the Mardi Gras celebration next weekend.
...The amazing castle at Disneyland Paris is being rehabbed; more photos here.
...We have several fun Disney events ahead. Besides THE ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR (1961) screening next month at the Disney Studios lot, we also have tickets to D23's 2nd Anniversary gathering next month, featuring the World of Color show, and we're signed up for April's MouseAdventure. The MouseAdventure Basic and Advanced divisions sold out within just a few hours of going on sale.
