The Disnye Parks Blog has an update on the reimagined rides coming to Disneyland this year!

 

Bringing New Magic to Matterhorn Bobsleds and Peter Pan’s Flight at Disneyland Park

posted on April 9th, 2015 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort

 

Here at Disney Parks, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to enhance our storytelling. For example, updating beloved classics allows us to – if I may quote Walt Disney – “keep molding and shaping” the guest experience. As we look forward to celebrating the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, we also have exciting changes coming to two of our classic attractions this spring.

First, a Disneyland park favorite is about to get even better as new effects are being added to Matterhorn Bobsleds. Just wait until you see the Abominable Snowman in ways you’ve never seen him before when the attraction reopens in May!

Also reopening in May is Peter Pan’s Flight, featuring a reimagined nursery scene and a variety of special effects that will make this classic and beloved attraction come to life in new ways.

We’re always looking for ways to add new magic to our Disneyland Resort attractions, and of course we’ll continue to share the details with you here on the Disney Parks Blog.

Does this mean a strobe light, soon?

The Park Blog seems to be on a roll today, here's another article about the Hat Box Ghost.

 

Legendary Hatbox Ghost Comes Out to Socialize in the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Park in May

posted on April 10th, 2015 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort

 

You may remember our chilling challenge from a few months ago, in which we asked you to guess which spooky specter was preparing to materialize inside the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland park. Today, I’m excited to tell you that many of you were correct! The Hatbox Ghost is reappearing in May. Here’s a sneak peek!

The Hatbox Ghost appeared in the Haunted Mansion for a short time around the opening of this classic attraction in 1969. Although brief, his presence sparked a decades-long following, and this reclusive resident of the Haunted Mansion was never forgotten. We’re excited that he will soon materialize once again!

Hey, those new AAs in the Seven Dwarves Mine Ride are great! Map away!

 

This is just my personal opinion, but I think using projection mapping for AA faces is kind of cheating. I'm not quite as wowed when I see a projected face vs. an entirely mechanical AA. Doesn't mean the final product still won't look great (I agree about the Seven Dwarves AA's)---it just doesn't WOW me as much.

To me it's essentially like CGI in movies...sure it looks great, but it still can't quite match practical effects. I'm assuming the hatbox ghost might use this technology as well?

Just saw somethingon the news about a "top secret" package being delivered into disneyland last night. Any ideas what it is?

 

Perhaps something to do with Tomorrowland (Movie)? I remember there was a bunch of secrecy surrounding the movie when it was first announced, along with when it was filmed.

It was Neil Patrick Harris in a box.

 

Maybe it was Walt Disney's freeze-dried remains--just add water.

Disneyland Diamond Days Sweepstakes to Give Away Dazzling Prizes During Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration

posted on April 14th, 2015 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort

 

Imagine winning a Disney Diamond or a Cinderella glass slipper, or enjoying a private excursion and dinner in Disneyland or Disney California Adventure park. Those are a few of the exciting prizes that will be awarded to some lucky guests during the Disneyland Diamond Days sweepstakes, part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration that begins May 22, 2015.

 

Disneyland Diamond Days is an exciting sweepstakes in which daily prizes are awarded to some visitors, on the day they are visiting, as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Daily prize winners must be present on the Disneyland Resort premises at the time of entry and at the time of prize redemption in order to be able to enjoy these special experiences, and theme park admission is not necessary to enter or win the sweepstakes.

In addition to the daily prizes, Disneyland Diamond Days will offer guests a weekly opportunity to win exceptional Disneyland Resort prizes and experiences. Appropriately, the most exciting prizes are authentic diamonds, custom-engraved for Disney! One and two-carat Disney Diamonds will be awarded throughout the celebration, and the one-carat Disney Diamonds will even be paired with a stay in the Disneyland Dream Suite. Other weekly prizes include a clear, crystal Cinderella slipper adorned with a diamond-and-topaz pendant, and unique experiences that only Disneyland can offer, such as a private party in Fantasyland, a romantic cruise aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat, or a tailgate party in Cars Land. The available prize will vary each week.

 

Full official rules will be available at Disneyland.com/DiamondDays on May 22, 2015.

 

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Void where prohibited. Open to legal residents of the 50 U.S., D.C., Mexico and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are age of majority as of date of entry. Specific prizes to be awarded in the weekly sweepstakes will be announced online at Disneyland.com/DiamondDays the preceding week. Sponsor: Disney Memories, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, U.S.A.
