Disneyland Paris is equipped with several machines in the Disney Village and under Main Street, U.S.A. Station. Read the rest of this entry »
All of us here at EndorExpress are extremely saddened to hear about the passing of Diane Disney Miller. Walt’s eldest daughter died at age 79 due to complications from an injury sustained in September.
Diane Disney Miller will be long remembered for her efforts in preserving her father’s legacy outside of the company that he created. Without her hard work and passion, we may not have the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles and we may never have seen a collection of works as impressive as The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. And if it wasn’t for Diane and her sister Sharon, Walt may not have dreamed up Disneyland one afternoon sitting on a bench while his daughters played on a merry-go-round.
Disney California Adventure kicked off its Holiday offerings this past weekend with a debut of a brand new version of World of Color titled “Winter Dreams”. The epic nighttime water spectacular is now hosted by Olaf (voiced by Josh Gad), the snowman from Disney’s upcoming animated feature film, “Frozen”, who appears throughout the show to introduce scenes and segments as well as sing in his own musical number “In Summer”.

Star Wars fans who weren’t able to attend this year’s Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios were probably just a bit disappointed that they couldn’t get their hands on some of the exclusive merchandise, but fans of Salacious Crumb who are near the Disneyland Resort can now rest easy. One of Jabba’s more memorable denizens is now available at the Star Trader in Tomorrowland!
Synergy at the Walt Disney Company is going on full, with the release of Marvel Studios’ Thor: The Dark World in theaters nationwide, Disneyland Park too has an Asgardian trick up their sleeve. Launched only a week ago, Thor: Treasures of Asgard makes its debut within the once struggling Innoventions exhibit inside Tomorrowland. The opening of Iron Man 3′s Hall of Armor exhibit last summer proved to be an incredible success for Innoventions, with the original closure date now completely ignored.

Walt Disney Imagineering’s Tony Baxter has had quite a year, having been honored as a Disney Legend during the D23 Expo. But this past Friday morning at Disneyland, USA, he was bestowed an even grander honor (from a certain point of view): a window on Main Street. Getting a window on Main Street is a tradition that began with Walt Disney at Disneyland Park and was continued by his brother Roy for Walt Disney World. The very same traditions would continue onto the rest of the Disney Parks.
