Southern Baptists become second to drop boycott

Last Wednesday in Nashville, Tennessee, at its annual meeting, the Southern Baptist Convention voted overwhelmingly to end its eight-year boycott of the Walt Disney Company. The Southern Baptists are the second group involved in the boycott to call it off, proclaiming that changes had been made and that the boycott was effective. The American Family Association called off its boycott on May 24.

As with the AFA, the Southern Baptists cited the departure of Michael Eisner as one of the main reasons for dropping the boycott, in addition to Disney's split with Miramax founders Harvey and Bob Weinstein, promotion of the Night of Joy events at Walt Disney World, and the upcoming release of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe movie.

New passholder rate program clarifications

Mid-last week, we received word that Disney is saying—at least to internal reservations staff—that the new Passholder Best Rate room reservations program is a supplement to, rather than a replacement for, the existing Passholder reservations program. That message has been muddied by the fact that no "standard" passholder rates have been announced for the program's rollout period.

Some additional clarifications on the program:

  • The modification penalty of $50 per reservation will not be charged if the total package price for the reservation is the same or higher. Modifications must be made by phone, and may be made up to the day before arrival.
  • When attempting to make a reservation through the program, read your quote screen carefully. The quote screen must state that you are booked with the "Passholder Best Rate Program." If the quote screen reads the following, you are booking a standard rate, and are not using the program, and you will not have your rate automatically adjusted for new discounts:
  • “A Passholder rate is not available for the date and resort you selected and we have returned a standard rate below. To search for the Passholder rate, please modify your date or resort.”

  • It is reported that any future passholder offers released for the same accommodations and dates as the Best Rate Program offers will not be lower than the Best Rate.

Virtual, Live Magic Kingdoms collide

In-park quests related to Disney's online Virtual Magic Kingdom game (link) are now available at "VMK Central" in the Main Street Cinema at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. Quests are currently available for three lands: Adventureland, Fantasyland and Frontierland. There are nine questions to be answered for each land, with three questions in each of three categories: Easy, medium and hard.

Questions for each quest are multiple-choice, with scratch-off fields for each answer. If all answers are scratched off correctly, players receive a green glow-in-the-dark plastic VMK bracelet with a code on the inside to be used to receive a special shirt for their character in the online game, as well as trading cards with images of the virtual prizes.

Quests come in brochures the size of folded park maps. Easy questions have two possible answers, medium questions have three and hard questions have four. Prizes are received for completing each level of each quest, and include clothing and furniture for players' online characters.

Next month, expect the addition of free Virtual Magic Kingdom tours. It is unconfirmed at this time whether the tours will be online or in the park.

Expedited-traveler system gets started at Orlando airport

Last Tuesday, Orlando International Airport began registering people for the new CLEAR program, whereby fliers can register their fingerprints and retina scans, as well as their personal information, and pay a $79.95 annual fee in exchange for priority passage through airport checkpoints. The program, which we first detailed on June 6 (link), processed approximately 300 on-site registrations and 1,000 preregistrations via the Internet in its first day.

Despite running into glitches on the first day, such as too much light washing out retina prints (temporarily resolved by holding paper over the registrant's head until a permanent solution is installed), those signing up for the program appeared to be satisfied with the process.

The fastest way to sign up for the process requires three steps:

  • Apply online at home on your own computer (link) or at one of four ClearSpace Enrollment Stations located at Orlando International Airport.
  • Bring two pieces of government-issued identification to the airport enrollment station to have your biometrics collected. Pictures of your irises and fingerprints will be gathered along with other vital information. This step takes approximately 15 minutes once you get to the head of the line.
  • Get cleared by the United States, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will use your personal information to make a security threat assessment. TSA then approves (or not approves) you for participation in the program.

If approved, you receive your ClearCard in about two weeks. The CLEAR program is run by Verified Identity Pass and Lockheed Martin, and so far is only available at Orlando International Airport.

Extra EMH attractions added this week

On Monday and Friday of this week, four attractions will be added to the evening Extra Magic Hours offerings at the Magic Kingdom. The Jungle Cruise, Snow White's Scary Adventure, Swiss Family Treehouse and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority will be open to the guests for three hours after park closing. It is uncertain at this time if this addition will continue through the summer.

See ya, "Sorcery"

On Saturday night, a Pampered Chef convention was the last group to ever see the full "Sorcery in the Sky" fireworks show. The show was noted for the inflatable Sorceror Mickey that appeared on the roof of the Chinese Theater and shot fireworks from its fingers. (It is believed that this effect had already been dismantled before Saturday's performance.) The group had bought out the evening hours at the theme park, which closed to the general public at 7:00 p.m. The fireworks show began at 11:30 p.m.

While the July 4 fireworks are being billed as "Sorcery in the Sky," it will actually be a shorter show known as "Lights, Camera, Fireworks." It is unknown at this time whether all future fireworks at the Studios will be "Lights, Camera, Fireworks" or if a new show is in the offing.

Christmas begins in July at the Studios

Installation of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights, which runs from November 23 through January 8 this year, will begin installation and set-up on July 11. Expect to see the first construction wall on July 31. The early preparation work will involve in installation of conduit on the building facades. The millions of Christmas lights themselves will not start appearing until late August.

Narnia comes to the Studios

Sets from the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, to be released this winter, will appear in two soundstages at the Disney-MGM Studios later this year. The updated version of the Backstage Pass attraction will allow guests to walk through the sets and view movie props.

Bucs to take over hotel for camp

Don't expect to be able to visit the Celebration Hotel or eat at its Plantation Room restaurant for most of August. The National Football League's Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be taking over the entire 115-room establishment for the duration of their training camp. The hotel will be closing to the public on July 25 (players arrive three days later) and will reopen on August 21 (the team departs August 17).

The training camp will be held at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex from July 29 through August 17. All sessions are expected to be open to the public.

WDW is no fun?

This year, Forbes magazine listed the “Top 10 best amusement parks in the world.” Interestingly, while Disneyland in California made the list, Walt Disney World did not. And while seven of the 10 listed were outside the United States, Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland did not make the list, either. Of course, Walt Disney World (and, specifically, the Magic Kingdom) are still leading the pack on annual attendance, but it appears that they just can't crack that "most fun" list. Maybe next year?

Ears to the ground

…The leading candidate for the new name of the Disney-MGM Studios once the naming deal with MGM expires this year is Walt Disney Studios, Florida. While nothing has been finalized yet, it would match the name of the Walt Disney Studios, Paris park.

…For those looking to try to coordinate their trip with the next space shuttle launch, NASA officials have given a tentative thumbs-up to a target of a mid-July launch of the shuttle Discovery. The launch window opens July 13. If the shuttle clears two more reviews next week, an official launch date will be set on Thursday.

…Renovation of the Tower rooms at the Contemporary Resort is set to begin this Wednesday. Rooms will be blocked off one floor at a time. The Tower work is expected to be completed February 19, 2006.

…Pleasure Island will celebrate the Fourth of July with special entertainment and fireworks July 3–5.
