Mother's Day Weekend Brunch with the guys

Disney is using Mother's Day to test, of all things, a character meal aimed at boys. We're now hearing that the Mother's Day Brunch at Epcot is featuring Disney Heroes, including Mickey Mouse, Aladdin, Hercules, Beast, Peter Pan, and others. Priority Seatings for Saturday, May 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday, May 8, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. are going fast, and can be booked by calling 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463).

Lights, Motors, Action! dates announced

The new Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show at the Disney-MGM Studios is holding cast previews on Saturday, March 12, at 1:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 13, at 12:45 and 2:45 p.m. Previews are for Studios cast, friends and family only. The attraction soft opens to guests for dress rehearsals on Monday, March 14.

“MGM” disappearance date coming soon?

Jim Hill has reminded us (link) that the end of Disney's 20-year contract with MGM to use its name for the theme park expires this June. We'll have to wait to see whether Disney tries to extend the contract or if they finally just change all the signage.

For those wondering, the reason that the vacation planning videos and DVDs always used the name “Disney Studios” instead of “Disney-MGM Studios” is that the deal with MGM did not allow them to use the name in filmed entertainment products, to avoid confusion with filmed products coming from the actual MGM studio. Now, it appears that the theme park may soon match all of the advertising.

Star Wars Weekends Festival events announced

The day after the sixth Star Wars movie (Episode III, Revenge of the Sith) hits theaters on May 19, Star Wars Weekends kicks off its 2005 four-weekend run at the Disney-MGM Studios. A quick rundown of festival activities includes:

  • Walk-around characters from every Star Wars film—from Kit Fisto and Boba Fett to Princess Leia and Greedo, as well as Jedi Mickey Mouse—will be available for photos and autographs.
  • Star Wars celebrities will participate in talk show-style interviews in the ABC Theater, take part in meet-and-greet sessions and ride in Hollywood-style motorcades. The line-up of Star Wars legends appearing during the month will be announced soon.
  • Special Star Wars-themed editions of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire–Play It! will be presented.
  • The “Jedi Training Academy” will give young Jedi hopefuls the chance to learn moves with a light saber and test their newly acquired skills against one of the evil Siths.
  • Loads of special-edition merchandise will be available. Event-exclusive Star Wars memorabilia—from trading pins and commemorative posters to apparel, medallions and other limited-edition items—will be available in Tatooine Traders.

Meanwhile, refurbishment continues on the Imperial Walker outside the Star Tours attraction. At the moment, it is down to a bare steel skeleton.

“Lobby Concierge” services to debut

All Disney hotels, from Value to Deluxe resorts, are separating the Front Desk functions into two distinct service areas: Front Desk and Lobby Concierge. The Lobby Concierge replaces Guest Services and focuses primarily on providing itinerary planning, dining, recreation, and ticket sales, while the Front Desk still handles check-in and assistance with issues related to your room. Recruiting and hiring for the new roles has already taken place, and the separation should begin shortly. With the new system, there will be a clear distinction of responsibility.

While Disney “concierge” services generally do not necessarily match concierge-level services at major hotels in other cities (for example, just try asking Disney concierges for assistance with tickets or dinner reservations at a non-Disney location), the new service should be quite sufficient for most guest needs, and the separation should help to keep guest service-type requests and check-in services from backing up each others' lines.

Companies to give away trips to Walt Disney World and Disneyland

Alamo Rent A Car has launched the Alamo.com Family Vacation Sweepstakes to promote its best rate guarantee for reservations made online at Alamo.com. Consumers can enter to win one of 300 trips to Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort online at Alamo.com, and also earn four additional entries with each qualified rental with Alamo from February 7 through April 30, 2005.

Each of the 300 packages is for four people, and includes airfare, Disney theme park passes, an Alamo rental car and hotel accommodations at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or Disneyland Resort hotel for five days and four nights. Trips will be given away at the rate of 100 per month, giving customers who may not win the first month, the chance to win again the following month. Those who have already entered are automatically entered in to the next month's drawing.

At the same time, Clear Channel Radio stations across the country begin running a specially designed Disney promotion today, along with the participation of Premiere Network's Delilah show and American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest. There is a call-in component of the radio promotion that awards vacation packages for four people to the premiere of the “Happiest Celebration on Earth” at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resorts.

Magic Mirror sculpture to premiere

A new collectible sculpture debuts on March 18 at several locations at Walt Disney World. Standing 11 1/2 inches tall, the porcelain Magic Mirror: “What Wouldst Thou Know, My Queen” sculpture is being offered for $150 plus tax, in a numbered limited edition of 5,000 pieces. Also available is the Evil Queen: “Who is the Fairest One of All?” offered for $150 plus tax.

The sculptures are available at Art of Disney (both at the Downtown Disney Marketplace and Epcot locations), Animation Gallery (at the Disney-MGM Studios), King's Gallery (at the Magic Kingdom), and Disney Outfitters (at Disney's Animal Kingdom), as well as through Walt Disney World Resort Merchandise Mail Order via phone at 407-363-6200. As always, all information is subject to change without notice.


The walkway between the new planters and the remaining wall provides much more room to handle the crowds in Fantasyland. We can only guess that ground will eventually be resurfaced to match the rest of Fantasyland. The expected Hundred-Acre Wood meet-and-greet is most likely still being built behind the remaining wall.

Passover package at Walt Disney World

You're Jewish and you want to go to Walt Disney World during Passover, but you don't think that you'll be able to eat there? Well, Lasko Tours is presenting a Passover package at the Hilton in the Walt Disney Resort on Hotel Plaza Boulevard in the Downtown Disney Resort Area. Catered by Abe Fuchs of New World Caterers and including a character breakfast at the hotel, the package also includes complimentary children's tickets to the theme parks.

For more information, go to the Lasko Tours Web site (link).

Disney receives three Thea Awards at February 5 ceremony

The Walt Disney Company was the recipient of three trophies at the Themed Entertainment Association's Thea Awards, presented at an awards dinner on February 5 at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel in Anaheim, California. Winning an award for Attraction with Technological Breakthrough was Walt Disney World's Mission: Space. Disneyland's Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular won a Live Show award. Winning a Technology award was Lucky the Dinosaur, who will appearing at Disney's Animal Kingdom from May through July this year. Award winners were chosen in 2004.

AutoShow in Motion returns

The AutoShow in Motion (link) returns to Epcot's parking lot March 3–6. The show, which was last in town in April 2004, once again offers the chance to check out more than 150 new cars, trucks, and SUVs. Take a Hummer H2 off-roading, drive the new Pontiac GTO around a closed-circuit track or just compare the latest GM vehicles against those from many other major car makers.

Scripps to get Disney-style powers?

Earlier this year, Florida legislators created a lot of hubbub in revisiting the legislation that created the Reedy Creek Improvement District, which gave Disney governmental powers over its land, because they were concerned that they had given away too much power to a corporation. Yet now, they are considering giving similar powers to finally end the delays in beginning construction of a biomedical research facility by Scripps in Palm Beach County.

There is still a great deal of conflict on whether or not to grant these powers, but if they do go ahead with it, it will be much less likely for the Legislature to again consider removal of the Reedy Creek powers. The Legislative session begins on March 8.

Ears to the ground

…The Walt Disney World Web site has finally listed an official re-opening date for “it's a small world” of March 19.

…Due to popular demand, Disney started selling 8- and 9-day Magic Your Way passes on February 11. Per-day price differences for base tickets from days 7-10 are $3–$4.

…The new sign for Epcot's The Land pavilion is largely completed and echoes the patterns of the pavilion's entrance murals, dampening fears that the murals would be removed.

…The Pepper Market and Maya Grill at the Coronado Springs Resort have just been added to the Magic Your Way Dining plan.

…New cast member name tags will be distributed for the Happiest Homecoming on Earth. They're expected to have the “Happiest Celebration on Earth” logo at top.

…Walt Disney World President Al Weiss has joined former Disney parks head Dick Nunis on the board of the University of Central Florida. Nunis, currently Chairman of the Board of Directors at UCF, retired as Chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts in 1999 after an illustrious career that began with assisting in preparation of a training program for Disneyland cast members prior to opening in 1955.


Expedition: Everest as a whole is showing definite signs of progress. Photo by Brian Bennett.

…The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orlando is opening a new church in Celebration. Corpus Christi parish begins holding services in a storefront in the Disney-created community, but plans to build its own building in the near future. Boundaries of the parish include a large portion of Osceola County. The new church would also provide another alternative for Walt Disney World guests looking for a place to go for mass.
