    Tidbits
    January 2011







    A Memorable Show?

    1/15/11
    The previously announced new nighttime Castle Show will begin performances next week at the Magic Kingdom. Starting January 19th, “The Magic, The Memories and You!” will feature an original musical score and display up to 500 Disney PhotoPass images. The 10-minute show will begin 20 minutes prior to the start of Wishes

    A Pixie Place

    1/15/11
    Tinker Bell is slated to arrive at Disney’s Hollywood Studios next month. Starting February 15th, a new Tinker Bell Meet & Greet location is scheduled to open in the queue area of the Magic of Disney Animation building. This Meet & Greet location was last used for Lilo & Stitch in 2002.

    Market Replacement

    1/15/11 Construction is slated to begin on the LEGO Imagnation Center at Downtown Disney later this month. The current location is scheduled to close for renovations January 24, 2011. During the closure, a temporary location will operate in the Downtown Disney Marketplace near the Once Upon A Toy location.

    12/27/10
    Three Downtown Disney Marketplace retail locations are slated to close in the New Year, two permanently and one temporarily. Summer Sands, Pooh Corner, and Mickey’s Mart are slated to close January 15, 2011. After renovations to the building, new LittleMissMatched and Mickey’s Mart locations will open in Spring 2011. The LittleMissMatched Downtown Disney Westside location is planned to close and transfer operations to the new Marketplace location.


    A Retro Return

    1/15/11
    Two of Walt Disney’s oldest cartoon characters are slated to begin making appearances at Walt Disney World. Character Cast are reporting that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Peg-Leg Pete are tentatively scheduled to begin Meet & Greet appearances later this year. Pete appeared as an antagonist in several Oswald cartoons prior to becoming an adversary in the early Mickey Mouse cartoons. Due to the historical connection, the two may appear together.


    A View to a Crane


    1/8/11
    Magic Kingdom Cast have reported that a crane is scheduled to be on-site near Cinderella Castle January 9 – 17, 2011. The crane will be used to remove the Dreamlights and may be visible during some operational hours.

    House of Changes

    1/8/11
    Fulton’s Crab House in Downtown Disney Pleasure Island has recently completed a set of renovations. The lobby area and the individual dining rooms have all been renovated and feature new interior designs. Some of the new additions include a map showing the origins of the seafood the restaurant serves and a new seafood display case.

    Speedway Slowdown

    1/8/11
    Attraction Cast have reported that the Tommorowland Speedway is slated to be operating at reduced capacity, intermittently, from Mid February through Spring 2011. Due to the proximity of the attraction to the Toontown Fair construction site, the lanes nearest the construction zone will likely be closed during times of construction near the area berm. During this time period, Guests should expect potentially longer than normal queue times for the speedway attraction.

    Tides of Change

    Demolition work has begun at Pleasure Island as part of transforming the area into Hyperion Wharf. Currently, the building that housed the former Motion Dance Club is being razed.

    Question: Summer Sands already closed and was replaced by Tren-D. Will that be closing? Or was this article incorrect?

    What? Where was I? I never even heard that, and I've been there probably 4 times and didn't even see it. Maybe I can make it back one last time...

    After some further digging, the GTIN code tracks back to a company located at 15251 Barranca Pkwy Irvine, CA.

    According to public record, the company at this location is Classic Food International Corp.
