It's a girl! Disney's Animal Kingdom welcomes another baby elephant

Tufani has a new playmate. Disney's Animal Kingdom welcomed a new baby African elephant last Tuesday evening. A 230-pound female elephant named, Kianga—“Sunshine” in Swahili—was born to 18-year-old Vasha after a 22-month gestation. Both baby and mother appear to be doing well. Kianga is nursing successfully and is already feisty and active.

In the near future, guests will be able to see Kianga's progress on camera monitors at Rafiki's Planet Watch at Disney's Animal Kingdom. It will be several weeks before the calf and her mother will join other elephants on the savannah.

Given the difficulty in achieving successful births of African elephants, especially in captivity, it's extraordinary that Disney has had two successful births so close together. In addition, two other elephants at Disney's Animal Kingdom are pregnant, with one due to give birth next spring and the other in late winter, giving further credibility to the Animal Kingdom breeding program.

See the full birth announcement in our News and Announcements section (link).

Disney Legend Sam McKim dies

MousePlanet has learned that Disney Legend Sam McKim, honored on a window on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom (“Golden State Graphic Arts Studio, Latest Artistic Principles Employed”), passed away late last week. Details were not immediately available. McKim, who retired in 1987, was named a Disney Legend in 1996. His story sketches included “it's a small world,” Hall of Presidents, Carousel of Progress, and Haunted Mansion. He may be best known for the many souvenir park maps that he created. MousePlanet will have more on this on Wednesday.

Magic Kingdom was full—but not too full—on July 4

A cast member wrote to us to clarify our information after reading last week's Walt Disney World Update, where the photo captions referred to the crowds at the Magic Kingdom on the Fourth of July.

The cast member writes:

“Magic Kingdom never really reached anywhere near capacity, or even closing the park like we have in July 4 in the past. We were only up to about 42,000 at the 3:00 parade, and by the time fireworks came around at 9 p.m., we were only at about 52,000. Last year we were at about 64,000. The article and pictures made it seem like this was the first time we've had these crowds. The picture of Cosmic Ray's shows people eating on the floor—that's because it's indoors, and it poured down rain that afternoon; we all know how guests get when it rains here. They're afraid to walk outside and get wet, so the majority of them that were already there stayed, and then a crowd of people came in to get out of the rain. Same thing, I believe, with the pictures of Timekeeper (indoor attraction—look at the guy coming in with the raincoat); and Hall of Presidents. The Mansion queue there, running down through the old Keelboat queue, I think was the exception.”

Regarding the photos of guests being routed backstage due to the crush of people on Main Street, U.S.A., the cast member adds, “[W]e do that every weekend during busy seasons. [T]he article makes this sound like it's something we've done once or twice. I don't think it's bad show; it's just more convenient to run guests backstage rather than have crowds coming down Main Street to exit compete with the crowds sitting to watch the parades and fireworks. On the 4th, we had the fireworks before the parades instead of in between. It's nothing we haven't done before.”

Thanks for the clarification. We did not intend to make it seem that the crowds and the measures taken to handle them were out of the ordinary for a holiday, though we don't always have photos to show what it's like at such a peak time. As for the routing of guests backstage, it is indeed more convenient and safe to do that, but sending guests backstage breaks the fantasy, and would indeed be considered “bad show.” However, safety comes before show, so there's no problem with that.

New window coming on Main Street, U.S.A.

Ralph Kent, Corporate Trainer for Artist Development at Disney Design Group, will be honored with a window on Main Street, U.S.A., at the Magic Kingdom Park, following his retirement after a decades-long career with the Walt Disney Company.

Ralph worked on many influential Walt Disney Imagineering and Merchandise projects during the 1960s, before moving to Florida to help open the Walt Disney World Resort. Ralph was presented with a mock-up of his window at a ceremony at Downtown Disney West Side on July 7 by Walt Disney World President Al Weiss.

Windows overlooking Main Street, U.S.A., in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom honor those whose contributions have made a lasting impact on the creation and operation of the WDW theme parks.

PhotoPass update

A MousePlanet reader has passed the following along regarding the Disney's PhotoPass trademark that we reported on last week:

“Disney Photographic Imaging will be shooting the Disney PhotoPass, as Kodak is being kicked out of Epcot. Initially, the program will start at Epcot and Ft. Wilderness, with people on Advanced Internships working as the photographers with Nikon D70 cameras. Disney is reclaiming this from Kodak as part of an effort to sell people pictures back home and so forth as described in the trademark paperwork. It should start in mid-August or September.

“According to people at Kodak, Disney has a lot of work to do before they'd be ready to start selling to the public.

“Kodak photographers are being asked if they want to be assigned to another park/resort or go to Universal [Studios Orlando] as of September.”

Platinum Edition Cinderella DVD

Although various release schedules show Cinderella as not being available until 2007, work seems to be well underway on the project. MousePlanet reader Ryan O. found himself staring at five potential DVD covers during a recent online Disney survey. Either Disney works on product covers three years in advance, or the DVD is being released sooner than 2007. Could it be possible that Disney has moved the release date forward by a bit so that the DVD could be released during Disneyland's 18-month 50th anniversary window? If so, Walt Disney World could have some extra synergy, what with its recent announcement that the Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom will get a special treatment for the celebration.

Ears to the ground

…We hear that ground clearing is underway for the long-rumored Master Blaster-style water coaster at Typhoon Lagoon. Major earthmoving will not begin until the park's scheduled two-month rehab closure over the winter. The coaster will be installed at the current location of Out of the Way Cay, and is expected to open following the park's winter rehab in either 2005 or 2006.

…The Fantasyland Skyway building area goes under rehab from July 11 to September 30. While the building itself will not be worked on, the grounds in front will be completely redone. The waterfall, bridge and pond will be removed and replaced with a meet-and-greet for Snow White and a new stroller parking area for “it's a small world.”

…We've heard a rumour that there may be Star Wars characters out in the Disney/MGM Studios on a regular basis. No time frame has been given, other than “this summer.”

…As reported earlier, the Liberty Square Portrait Gallery has completed relocating its operation next to two existing merchandise locations. One is on the porch area outside the Christmas Shoppe and the other is on Main Street, U.S.A. between Uptown Jewelers and the Market House. The Produce Market has relocated to the facility that was previously occupied by the portrait artist.

…We've now got confirmation that the grand opening of Stitch's Great Escape is targeted for a press event on October 1-3. Cast previews take place in early September, with unadvertised openings mid-September and an official soft opening in late September.

Refurbishments and Attraction Closures

Magic Kingdom

  • it's a small world” – closed for rehab through March 18, 2005. The work is expected to be for upgrades to the lighting, audio, and electrical systems, rehabs to sets and Audio-Animatronic figures, asbestos abatement, roof repair, regular water maintenance (draining and refilling), replacement of boats, and the rumored swapping of the entry and exit queues for better traffic flow and more stroller parking. The audio upgrade will include a return to a cleaned-up copy of the stereo soundtrack heard at the 1964 World's Fair, which has been very well received since it returned to Disneyland a couple of years ago.

  • The Wonders of Life pavilion – open seasonally. The Pure and Simple eatery and the Well and Goods Limited shop have been removed, while the Body Wars, Cranium Command, and The Making of Me attractions will now be open when the pavilion is open. It appears that the pavilion will not open this summer, which does not bode well for the future.

Disney-MGM Studios
