Settlement approved with family of 4-year-old boy who died after riding Mission: Space in 2005

Last Monday, it was announced that a settlement agreement was approved between Walt Disney World and the family of Daudi Bamuwamye, the 4-year-old boy who died after collapsing during a ride on Mission: Space on June 13, 2005. According to an autopsy report, the boy died as a result of idiopathic myocardial hypertrophy with fibroelastosis of the left ventricle, or dead scar tissue and abnormally thick muscle walls in his heart. The heart condition is apparently so severe that those suffering from it are at risk of sudden death throughout their lives.

The agreement, reached last October, was approved by Orange County Circuit Court Judge George Sprinkel on January 11. No details of the settlement were disclosed, aside from the fact that both sides would be reaponsible for paying their own legal and court fees. The Bamuwamyes had filed suit last June, alleging wrongful death. Sprinkel signed a final order of dismissal on that suit last Tuesday.

Cirque performer seriously injured, expected to recover

For the first time since Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba opened eight years ago, a performer suffered a serious injury during a performance. The performer, who portrayed the Green Bird character, fell and was injured during the 9 p.m. show on January 26. She is still being treated, but is recuperating and is expected to return to the show. No further information was available at press time.

Rhodes, Dungy latest to be "going to Disney World" after Super Bowl victory

Indianapolis Colts running back Dominic Rhodes and coach Tony Dungy are the latest Super Bowl victors to appear in the iconic "going to Disney World" commercial following the Colts' 29-17 win over the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI last night. A Disneyland version was created, as well.

Rhodes will be in the Magic Kingdom today to participate in a first-ever football game in the Magic Kingdom, with a group of 8-to-11 year old children who participate in NFL Youth Football leagues around Central Florida, on a temporary gridiron set up near the hub area in front of Cinderella Castle.

Rhodes rushed for 113 yards and scored the go-ahead touchdown in the second quarter. Dungy became the first African American head coach to win the Super Bowl. The commercial is the 37th in the series, which began 20 years ago with Giants quarterback Phil Simms following Super Bowl XXI.

Star Wars, Super Soap and other event dates released

The dates of several special events at the Disney-MGM Studios have been released, officially and/or unofficially.

In perhaps the most-awaited announcement, Star Wars Weekends takes place Fridays through Sundays, from June 1-24. The dates are being pushed back to avoid a conflict with Star Wars Celebration IV, the Memorial Day Weekend gathering to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original film.

Super Soap Weekends return again over Veteran's Day weekend, this year running November 10-11. Meanwhile, the Tom Joyner Family Reunion will take place August 31 - September 3. Dates for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights have been set for November 12 through January 6, 2008.

High School Musical settles in at the Studios

Just a bit of catch-up here, as the High School Musical Pep Rally has been playing at the Disney-MGM Studios since January 22. The show travels on a flatbed truck down the parade route, stopping to do 11-minute shows along the route. The Rally makes the trip six times a day.

Jostens to sponsor new Wide World of Sports facility as part of major partnership deal

Catching up on more news announced during the international press event at Walt Disney World, Disney has entered into a partnership with Jostens, Inc., whose product line includes school yearbooks, scholastic products such as class rings and graduation products, and products for athletic champions and their fans. The company will sponsor the Jostens Center, a state-of-the-art multi-sport complex with more than 44,800 square feet of indoor competition space, which will house six college size basketball courts, 12 regulation size volleyball courts, two roller hockey rinks, four locker rooms, two conference rooms and two officials' rooms. In addition, Jostens will get a bunch of unique spaces within the facility to showcase its heritage and products. Including the adminstrative, display and spectator areas, the new center will be more than 70,000 square feet. The center is scheduled to open in the fall of 2008.

In exchange, Jostens has also been named the exclusive provider of Disney PhotoBooks for Walt Disney World, making it an integral part of producing the photo books that are now a part of Disney's PhotoPass service to theme park guests. The PhotoBook, costing from $49.95 to $69.95 for a 20-page book, is now available to all theme park guests for use with their own photos and/or official Disney photos.

In addition, Jostens will become an official sponsor of Walt Disney World Resort Youth Programs, including Disney's Youth Education Series, Grad Night, 8th Grade Grad Jam, Festival Disney, Disney Honors and Magic Music Days. This will provide more brand recognition for the company amongst its primary target market of school-age kids.

DVC's Animal Kingdom Villas now on pre-sale to current members

Disney Vacation Club members have an exclusive pre-sale period for ownership interests in the new Animal Kingdom Villas from February 1-28. The first 134 accommodations (remodeled rooms on the fifth and sixth floors of the existing Animal Kingdom Lodge) become available this fall, with the 324 Vacation Homes of the Kidani Village opening in spring 2009.

Current members have an exclusive opportunity to purchase additional points through the end of the month, at which point sales open up to the general public. During the pre-sales period, two additional opportunities are available. Those buying an ownership interest of 100 points or more will receive a credit of $8 per vacation point. DVC is also creating a village tapestry to honor the Founding Members of the resort. If you buy 150 points or more, you will become a Founding Member and will have your name added to the tapestry. But you'll need to buy in by the close of business on February 28 to qualify for these benefits.

The Kidani Village annex will offer larger accommodations than other DVC resorts, with all one-bedroom units sleeping up to five people. A new full-service restaurant, a feature pool and water play area and other amenities will be added, as well.

Rumor patrol

We've got several rumors coming in recently, though no confirmation yet. We'll see how accurate these turn out to be.

We're hearing several different dates for the Haunted Mansion refurbishment and upgrade, with some projecting a May or June start date, while other say that the work is more imminent. The work is expected to take four months, and are said to include the "floating Leota" and bride effects recently added at the Disneyland version of the attraction.

Negotiations are reportedly underway for additional refurbishment of the Country Bear Jamboree, including replacement of the Beulah animatronic, which is supposedly responsible for 95 percent of the attraction's problems requiring shutdowns.

Operations continues to save money by turning off burning gas. First, it was the "burning cabin" on Tom Sawyer Island, which was shut off during the lengthy riverboat refurbishment but never turned back on. More recently, it was the tiki torches along the Sunshine Tree Terrace. No word on if or when the flames will be back.

A personal appeal, for the second year

I'm spending my birthday this year walking to raise money for the March of Dimes again. Last year, through the generosity of friends, family, co-workers and MousePlanet readers, we managed to raise $2,525. This year, let's beat that. Let's see if we can raise $4,000. I think we can. For more information, or to donate, go here.

Quick takes …

…After a line of severe storms and tornados devastated an area of Central Florida early Friday morning, Disney announced on Saturday that it would donate $50,000 to the American Red Cross to assist in relief efforts. Disney Worldwide Outreach and Walt Disney World Resort will provide ongoing support through in-kind contributions to Red Cross shelters, including water, blankets, pajamas, games, DVDs and other items.

…Passholders will be seeing several extra benefits in the coming months. Passholders will be able to get into ESPN The Weekend one hour early on March 4, access to suite-level seats for the March 18 spring training game between the Atlanta Braves and Detroit Tigers (for $50/child and $60/adult, including a buffet lunch), and 20% off any PhotoBook or PhotoMovie. Check out the new edition of the Mickey Monitor when it arrives in your mailbox for details.

…The Muscles and Bustles Health Club at the BoardWalk Resort is testing a special 24-hour operating schedule for its exercise equipment. Guests staying at the resort should visit the health club between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. to sign up for 24-hour access during their stay. This is an open-ended test, so you'll want to check at the club to make sure that the option is still available.
