Troubles with Tiggers – again

For the second time in three years, Tigger is in trouble with the law. Jerry Monaco, Sr., of Greenville, New Hampshire, was videotaping members of his family posing with Tigger at the Disney-MGM Studios just around 12:30 p.m. on Friday when he caught the incident on tape. From the tightly edited segment that appeared on the WKMG-TV Web site, it is hard to tell whether Jerry Monaco, Jr., 14, did anything to provoke the character into apparently slapping him in the face.

In the video, the character is seen using his right arm to lock Monaco's left arm into place behind his back, then reaching around with his left hand and hitting Monaco in the face. As the video ends, it appears that the character is making sure that the boy is all right, but it is hard to tell. It is also hard to tell what Monaco might have been doing to cause the character to lock his arm. Former character portrayers have noted that locking arms is a tactic commonly used when the guest is doing something behind the character's back that they should not be doing.

The cast member in question, Michael J. Fedelem, 31, of Kissimmee, has been temporarily suspended while Disney investigates the incident. The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating, as well. Both have already interviewed Fedelem.

In February 2004, Michael Chartrand was arrested for allegedly touching the breast of a 13-year-old girl while dressed as Tigger. He was eventually acquitted by a jury.

Florida resident and AP room rates through March 31

Disney has announced room-only discounts for Annual Passholders and Florida Residents for mid-February through the end of March.

Room-only discounts are available for Annual Passholders and Florida residents for most night from February 15 through March 31. Discounts are up to $40 off per night at Value resorts, $61 off per night at Moderate resorts and $131 off per night at Deluxe and Disney Vacation Club resorts. These rates can be booked up to the night of arrival, depending on availability. Discounts are priced off of rack rate. To book the rates, call Disney directly or your travel agent (Small World Vacations is MousePlanet's preferred travel agency) and request booking code FCR (Passholders) or FCT (Florida residents). [Ed note: The effective dates were listed incorrectly at publication time, and were corrected that evening.]

Passholders and Florida Residents get six months' admission to Pleasure Island for the cost of one night

From January 1 through March 31 of this year, Annual Passholders and Florida residents can purchase a multi-club Pleasure Island ticket for the regular price of $21.95 (plus tax) and get unlimited visits through June 30. Guests must be over 21 years of age to purchase the tickets, and proof of age, proof of an annual pass or Florida residency, and a valid photo ID are required at the Pleasure Island box office when purchasing a ticket or redeeming a certificate from an online purchase.

The offer cannot be combined with other discounts or offers, and is not valid for single-club tickets. Guests must be 21 years of age to enter any of the dance clubs (basically anything other than the Adventurer's Club and the Comedy Warehouse), and must show proof of age at the time of entry.

Walt Disney World Marathon gets its first four-time winner as Bastos wins third in a row

Yesterday, Adriano Bastos of Sao Paulo, Brazil, became the first four-time winner of the Walt Disney World Marathon, and the first to win three races in a row. Bastos won in 2 hours, 19 minutes and 24 seconds, nearly 13 minutes ahead of the second-place finisher, Matthew Dobson of Pensacola, Florida.

The winner of the women's race was Gabriela Trana of Costa Rice, running in her first marathon ever. Her time of 2:57:03 was just 22 seconds ahead of Christa Benton of St. Petersburg, Florida, and 35 seconds ahead of Elizabete Cruz of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Renzo Martinez of Boca Raton, Florida, won his third consecutive race in the wheelchair division in 2:24:34, over half an hour ahead of Rick Thigpen of Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Race officials honored Mary Peters, of St. Augustine, Florida at the finish line as the 100,000th finisher in the event's history. Peters was given a special commemorative medal and mouse ears, plus a complete 2008 Disney Marathon vacation package.

In the Walt Disney World Half Marathon, held on Saturday, the men's division was won by Jarrod Shoemaker of Sudbury, Massachusetts in 1:10:28, while Melissa White of Rochester, Michigan, won the women's division for the second year in a row, in 1:15:41.

Congratulations to the MousePlanet staffers who ran this weekend. MousePlanet Mailbag editor Stephanie Wien finished the marathon in 6:04:46, raising $3,802 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at the same time. Columnist Mike Scopa finished the half marathon in 2:58:37.

New Year's Day assault aboard Disney Wonder

A New York man is in jail in the Bahamas for allegedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl aboard the Disney Wonder on New Year's Day while the ship was in international waters. As Nassau was the next stop on land, the man was arrested there.

Lucas George Wicker, 21, allegedly told the girl that he wanted to show her "something" on a lower deck. When she refused to accompany him, he threatened to throw her overboard, according to investigators' reports.

The Disney Cruise Line is cooperating with authorities in the investigation. No further information is currently available on this story.

Family Digest to hold "Gospel Idol" competition at Walt Disney World

The Family Digest TV show will hold their Gospel Idol competition on May 27 at Walt Disney World. The competition will be broadcast internationally on The Family Digest TV Show. The competition, similar to another well-know TV show, will focus on "talent and soul," according to Susan Benjamin, executive producer of the show.

Judging will be through a combination of expert judges and audience voting. A limited number of entries are open to all. For more information, go to the show's Web site and click on the "Gospel Idol" banner.

Quick takes …

…Disney is revealing a new Web site today. It's unknown as to whether it will affect your ability to make online reservations. If you experience problems, please give them a chance to fix it, then try again later. It is hoped that any and all bugs will be repaired quickly. [Ed note: We have been advised that, while the site was introduced by Disney CEO Bob Iger at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 8, it will not actually go live for a few weeks. In addition, we have been assured that the redesign will not impact the Parks & Resorts sites, aside from some minor graphical updates to match the overall scheme of the new site.]

…A warning for those with mobility issues who plan to eat at Cinderella's Royal Table in late April: The elevator that takes guests to the restaurant is closed for refurbishment and repair from April 15-28. Guests must climb 40 steps in the circular staircase to access the restaurant.

…The 1900 Park Fare restaurant at the Grand Floridian Resort (which does not serve lunch) will close for refurbishment from July 9 through October 1. While the restaurant is closed, the Grand Floridian Cafe will offer a pre-plated character breakfast and dinner, to be called the "Supercalifragilistic Breakfast" and "Cinderella's Gala Feast." Citricos will also be open for breakfast and lunch with a similar menu. Citricos will also return to serving dinner seven nights as week, back from it's current Wednesday through Sunday schedule.

…There will be no performances of Cirque du Soleil La Nouba January 14-22.

…The Swan and Dolphin Resort has a new general manager. Peter Kacheris, who has recently held managerial positions at the Marriott Orlando World Center and JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes, was named to the position at the hotel. The resorts, with 2,265 rooms between them, have recently completed a 60 million dollar redesign project.

…It may seem a silly milestone, but the one-millionth post was made to our MousePad discussion boards this week. MousePad member "Mermaid" had the distinction of making the milestone post, and has been suitably honored with a Lifetime Premier Subscription to MousePad, and her choice of item from our CafePress store.
