Filming today – Production crews are taking advantage of the beautiful spring weather to film commercials and more inside the park. Imagineer Marty Sklar was in the park on Tuesday filming a special for the Travel Channel. More filming took place outside the new Pooh ride Tuesday morning, and around the Partner's statue Wednesday afternoon.

Downtown Disney, for rent – Soliton, Downtown Disney's highend sunglass shop, has moved in with Mainspring, which sells watches and clocks. The two stores will operate from the same storefront. The two stores are owned by the same company, which also operates Liquid Planet and Petals in the Disneyland Resort's shopping district. The vacant Soliton space joins the former Tin Pan Alley location on the "for rent" list.

Painting in Adventureland – We told you that the Disneyland painting crews have focused their attention the that park's west side in preparation for the Pirates of the Caribbean event. The entrance to Adventureland got a touchup last week when the tiki masks were repainted.

Disney announces travel cancellation policies – The following cancellation policy information regarding the Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Cruise Line is being provided in an effort to help guests who may be apprehensive about their travel plans.


advertisement

Now through April 18, guests who have vacation packages to Disneyland with an arrival prior to June 2 will be allowed to change or cancel their landbased arrangements without penalty. The temporary policy applies to new and existing bookings made through the Walt Disney Travel Company, Disney Central Reservation Offices or online.

For those who have booked a Disneyland Resort room-only vacation, the penalty will be waived for arrivals through April 21 if the room is canceled before April 18.

Any deposit or full payment that has been submitted for package or room-only vacations will be fully refunded, provided you change or cancel your vacation before April 18. As a rule, Disney cannot waive cancellation penalties for thirdparty products such as airline tickets, rental cars, or non-Disney resorts. Have your travel agent check with those suppliers directly to learn their separate cancellation policies.

A checkered flag for NASCAR fans – We told you that AAA was offering its members a special package for travel to the NASCAR Winston Cup 500. AAA has cancelled this package because of world events.

Anyone who has booked the package is eligible for a full refund, and all cancellation fees have been waived. Members are encouraged to request the same travel agent who booked their original package for them. If you don't remember the agent's name, the AAA office can look the information up for you.

SoCal Salute – The Southern California resident discount ticket program runs January 6 - May 16, 2003. Instead of a discounted ticket, residents of will get two one-day admissions for their $47/$37 – one for Disneyland, and one for Disney's California Adventure.

This ticket is good for only one admission to each park (meaning you cannot go to Disneyland twice on separate days). The two admissions do not have to be used on consecutive days, but the first admission must be on the same day as the ticket purchase, and the second must be used by May 16, 2003. And while the ticket is not intended to be a park-hopper, which would allow you to visit both Disneyland and DCA on the same day, some readers have reported that they were allowed to use the ticket as a one-day park hopper.

These tickets are nontransferable. You must provide proof of residency at the time of purchase, and you will be asked to print your full name on the tickets. When you return for your second admission, you need to show ID matching the ticket. This offer is limited to 5 tickets per qualifying person.
