Spotlight on Disneyland's Oscar

He's been around longer than many Disney fans have been alive, and he's still serving up a great breakfast five days a week at the Carnation Cafe in the Disneyland Resort. We're talking about Oscar Martinez. With 54 years of service, he is the longest tenured cast member at the Disneyland Resort.

New Star Tours Attraction Debuts in May

It's been a long, nine month hiatus, but we can finally see the light sabre at the end of the tunnel.

Sunday Round-Up for January 23, 2011

So much news about the Disney Dream and the new promotion for this year, I thought I'd highlight some posts that covered some of the less well-traveled topics:

Imagineering Disney has a great post on World Showcase, then and now. As much as I don't like many of the changes that come to WDW, it's interesting to see how little has changed in many places.

Remodeled Bathrooms in Magic Kingdom Make a Splash

Restrooms. We all use them; we all want them to be clean, modern, and "Disney-esque." And there's a newly remodeled set of restrooms in the Magic Kingdom that we think are pretty snazzy. Snazzy enough, in fact, to give them a shout-out!

These are the restrooms located in that little underpass between Adventureland and Frontierland, and Disney World has recently updated them to reflect rich Arabian themeing. We have a few photos of the women's restroom (clearly the best choice, we think!) to give you an idea of the changes.

Disney Dream Christened

It was a day of magic for Disney Cruise Line's long-awaited newest ship. January 19 saw the Disney Dream christened in a lavish and grand ceremony which featured celebrities, top Disney executives and the Mouse himself.

Multi-talented actress and singer Jennifer Hudson was on hand as the Dream's godmother. A very fitting choice was Ms. Hudson as her Oscar- and Grammy-winning career started in 2003 aboard the Dream's sister ship, the Wonder.

"The Magic, the Memories and You" Premiere Pictures and Video

Disney premiered their new promotion for 2011 on Tuesday night, "The Magic, the Memories and You." The show basically uses Cinderella's Castle as a canvas on which to project a variety of special effect that make a compelling visual effect. It will also feature 500 photos from guests who use the PhotoPass service during the day.
