Dumbo Live-action Remake: Needs More Than A Feather To Fly

universal studios Disney might once again prove to the world that it is still great at two things: superhero movies and destroying childhood memories. The original animated film of Dumbo was emotionally endearing. The quiet story of a baby elephant separated from its mother because of abusive circus hands, who eventually becomes world-renowned for its ability to fly, thanks to a group of racially offensive crows and a exploitative mouse. As a result, Dumbo has millions of fans that will go see the movie, despite whatever critics say. After all, the live-action Alice in Wonderland made over $1 billion despite its Rotten Tomatoes rating of 51 percent. Whats more, Maleficent has made $630 million with 49 percent. The numbers clearly show that live-action remakes are something of a risk-free investment. A flop, money-wise, seems nearly impossible.

Three Things We Really Want Featured In Disney?s Girl Meets World « Nerdist

Might GAME OF THRONES? [SPOILER] Never See the Light of TV? Even at their worst ( underpants, anybody ), these two best buds always stood by one another and loved each other, and when the road got really tough Shawn did join a cult that one time their bond remained thicker than blood. In the new series, Rileys pushed into craziness by her best friend, Maya. Its hard to tell at this point how much the bond between the two tweens will play into the series, but with any luck, it will be just as wonderful to watch as the famed buddy duo of Cory and Shawn in the 90s. OUT-THERE HUMOR: Before there was Community, before there was Arrested Development, heck, before there was Malcolm in the Middle, there was Boy Meets World. As the series progressed and the writers needed to find new challenges to put their characters through, the humor became more and more insane. The clip above was toward the end of the series, the final season to be exact, in an episode titled Seven the Hard Way. The moment is a flash-forward to a world where the gang never gets back together after a battle that goes way too far. Also, there was that one episode where the show went meta and we visited the set of Kid Gets Acquainted with Universe. Yeah, that happened. With any luck (and a few episodes of set-up) this will be the kind of subversive humor well hopefully see from the new Disney Channel series, and if that happens, we could be looking at the next great childrens program. ~~ Girl Meets World has a lot to live up to, and if you dont want to wait until 9:45pm tonight (TGIF!) to watch the premiere (and if you have a cable or satellite subscription) you can watch it right now on Disneys website and mobile app .

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Opening At Walt Disney World : People.com

Heigh-Ho! Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Opening at Walt Disney World| Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Walt Disney World, Walt Disney Walt Disney World 's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train officially opened in orlando vacation packages Orlando, Florida, Friday morning as the jewel in the crown of the Magic Kingdom's recent expansion, New Fantasyland . Incorporating the major thematic elements of the now-shuttered dark-ride staple Snow White's Scary Adventures with what Disney Imagineers call a "family-friendly" roller-coaster, the attraction's 20-passenger trains slow down inside a dark cavern to provide a mirthful glimpse of the popular Disney characters at work, then speeds into gear to zip through their well-landscaped and hilly village. On the intensity scale, the Mine Train measures closer to The Barnstormer than to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, with gentle curves and the tallest hill 41 feet high. Meanwhile, the visual experience inside the mine is enhanced by LED-lit "gems" that literally allow the Audio-Animatronic Dopey to have stars in his eyes. Other details include an exact replica of their cottage, with an evil visitor outside the door. The attraction will be fully opened to the public on May 28. Sleepy Does What Sleepy Does "This is the first time we've done a full 3D design and delivery process on any of our Audio-Animatronic figures," said Ethan Reed of Walt Disney Imagineering, which went back to the source material, Walt Disney's first full-length animated feature, 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, for inspiration. "There's so much new technology out there, we can really make these characters look like they jumped off the screen," Reed said. Disney World's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Matt Stroshane Another new technology just rolled out at Disney World is MyMagic+, a personalized wristband device that guests can use as their hotel-room key, park admission and Fast Pass ticket, credit card for purchases, and, in conjunction with the My Disney Experience smartphone app, schedule planner for the entire trip.

Disney Golden Oak: How the rich do Disney World | Fox News

Tap the Mickey. The bands are programmable with all your preferences, such as what restaurants you might be going to, what rides you want to check out on which days, and which parks youll be visiting. You can do the programming yourself online, or the concierge at the resort can do it for you. During a recent trip to Disney World, my family and I did a test run on the new bands, and can report they worked 100% as advertised: We had no glitches, with either the programming or using them in the parks and hotels. The water park Blizzard Beach has an alpine setting. Theyre used by the Disney staffers too. For instance, when you enter the pool area of a hotel, the guy who gives you towels might wave a hand sensor over your band to make sure youre really a guest. Thats better than having to remember to bring your key down each time. Of course, with every move registered, some might find it all vaguely Orwellian or chalk it up to Disney simply finding more methods of lightening your wallet. But its fun as well as efficient.

Residents work with the builder to design their homes, keeping in mind the strict indoor and outdoor architectural guidelines that have been put in place to maintain the Disney integrity. (All front doors must be made of wood, for example, and no matter how much you beg, there will be no 15-foot statues of Goofy in the front yard.) While the entry point of $1.8 million is enough to dissuade most, fees don't stop there. After purchasing a home, residents pay $25,000 a year for maintenance, which covers the homeowners association fee and includes access to the 17,000-square-foot Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Summerhouse clubhouse. Summerhouse features Markham's restaurant and Tyler's lounge, a gym, a heated outdoor pool and a family room with game area, and it employs the top, hand-selected "cast members" from the Disney family. To ensure the home-within-a-hotel feel, Summerhouse also offers Disney Golden Oak residents a concierge to book tickets to the parks, schedule VIP tours, help plan dinners and parties, create Disney holiday decor, provide private transportation to any destination within Walt Disney World and to make spa appointments and tee-times. Theyll even arrange baby-sitting. If you're living at Disney World, you're obviously a fan, so each Disney Golden Oak resident gets five complimentary Golden Oak resident will receive five three-year annual passes, and each pass comes with five additional one-day theme park tickets. The homes themselves are stunning and stunningly large featuring open kitchens, sweeping indoor and outdoor spaces, pools, guesthouses with separate entrances and at least five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms. Residents have the option of decorating their homes with the famous "hidden Mickeys" tiny mouse ears emblazoned everywhere from wallpaper to ceilings to stair railings.

Scientists Find Experimental Support For Killer Whales' Ability To Learn New Dialects

Scientists Find Experimental Support for Killer Whales' Ability to Learn New Dialects by Staff Comments A team of scientists from Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute (HSWRI) and SeaWorld San Diego has provided the strongest evidence yet that killer whale dialects are learned. The study found that juvenile male killer whales are capable of learning new call types when they undergo a change in social association. Killer whales have vocal repertoires that scientists call ?dialects? because they?re composed of calls unique to particular social groups. Discovering how whales develop these dialects hasn't been possible in the wild because of the inherent challenges in tracking an individual whale?s vocalizations and behavior regularly and for extended periods of time. The HSWRI study took advantage of the unique habitat at SeaWorld that was outfitted with multichannel video and eight hydrophones. This environment allowed the researchers to record and analyze the calls made by individual whales over a five-year period. Learning whether social association affects http://hermionespiritanimal.tumblr.com/ the calls of killer whales sheds important light on how wild populations of whales interact. Scientists still don?t know if and how populations of killer whales can merge. The data from this study give clues about how that might occur.

at 2:30 p.m. The magical moment was the result of Sullivan's ambition to cultivate his students for greater pursuits as well as show them confidence in their abilities. It was also a result of laborious communication with Disney, to whom Sullivan initially sent an application in September of 2012 and subsequently followed through with other requirements like photos and a performance DVD. "When all is said and done, our students may not remember the big Math exam or the day they took the ACT or even a Friday night football game in October," says Sullivan, "but they will remember marching down Main Street in the Magic Kingdom playing Hail to the Varsity (our fight song) in front of 30,000 people. "I told the band that they probably would be back at another point in their lives, but it will never be this time with these people, together, again. The marching band is a close group. The fellowship of playing, performing and sharing in the process of making music in motion is what makes that bond so strong."

Sixteen months later, their investment of hard work, hours of practice, main page and finances was realized when they boarded the two private buses at Brooklyn High School on Friday, June 6.

Walt Disney World Joins Food Truck Brigade - Orlando Sentinel

Walt Disney hosts 1st Food Truck Rally And ESPN's Wide World of Sports hosts seven to eight local food trucks at each Orlando City soccer game. But before you rev up the engine of your kitchen on wheels, keep in mind that the trucks are invited and vetted to make sure they meet the culinary standards of the Walt Disney World Resort. "The requirements to be on their list are stringent," said Joey Conicella, co-owner of The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck. "Our baking operation as well as our truck was thoroughly inspected to meet their standards for food preparation and safety." In addition, one of the things Disney was keen on when developing relationships with local trucks was quick service, said Conicella. "We scoped out the local food trucks before we built our vehicles, and we noticed that several trucks even the most popular ones had extensive menus which required people to wait a long time for their food, " said Kleinschmidt. "We wanted great food with a quicker guest satisfaction. All of the Disney trucks have limited menus so that food can be in the guests' hands in a timely manner. The Disney trucks at the event are Namaste Cafe, inspired by the flavors of Disney's Animal Kingdom and offering items such as butter chicken and tandoori shrimp; Superstar Catering, offering favorites from Disney's Hollywood Studios such as Margherita flatbread; Fantasy Fare, with popular tastes from Magic Kingdom parks all over the world, including sticky chicken and waffles and Disneyland's famous corn dog; and World Showcase of Flavors, serving pierogies and grass-fed beef sliders inspired by the theme park's many festivals.

Within two hours they were back on the road, safely arriving in Orlando Saturday evening. Per Disney's strict and meticulous stipulations, the Hurricettes danced in the parade wearing their long-sleeved leotards and boots, while the band marched and played in their complete uniforms of wool jackets, long pants, hats, gloves, and black shoes all perfect wear for northern Ohio's chilly football season, but a proven challenge under Florida's afternoon sun. Nonetheless, they looked sharp and sounded great, persevering through the heat and sweat.
