Video Rewind: Point-of-View Videos from Disneyland Resort Attractions

posted on August 4th, 2015 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort

Need to fill that time between your last ride on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and the next? Miss that view from the front of the Disneyland Resort Monorail? Good news – Shannon, one of our fabulous video pros, has you covered! Take a rewind back to some of the “Point of View” videos she has shared with us over the years here on the Disney Parks Blog.

We captured memorable moments from Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Splash Mountain and Space Mountain, and mashed them into one video.

A camera was mounted on the driver’s side of a Radiator Springs Racers car during a test run prior to the 2012 opening of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park for this special sneak peek of the attraction.

A round-trip ride on the Disneyland Monorail lasts about 15 minutes, but if you’re short on time, this video highlights the highway in the sky with a point of view only visible by a few.

Five cameras traveled aboard the Omnibus to tape the entire trip from the Main Street Train Station to Sleeping Beauty Castle and back again.

Summer of Souvenirs Continues with New Items at Disney Parks

posted on August 4th, 2015 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


At the beginning of June, I announced a summer of new souvenirs at Disney Parks with a preview of decorative hand sanitizers. Now that the hand sanitizers are available in a variety of merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, here is a look at other new and upcoming items.


The D-Tech on Demand boutique inside the Marketplace Co-Op at Downtown Disney Marketplace recently made available two designs for fans of ABC’s hit television show “Once Upon a Time.” Guests can create and customize a case for the following mobile phones: iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S/5C, iPhone 6/6+, Samsung Galaxy SIII, Samsung Galaxy S4/S5/S6.

We are also offering a few pre-printed cases for the Samsung Galaxy S6 in select locations at Disney Parks.


One of my favorite things being released this month is a Vinylmation, Jr. set inspired by Adventureland. This limited release mystery set contains 12 figures featuring characters such as birds from Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room and, my all-time favorite, the Orange Bird. The set will be released at the D-Street locations in Florida and California starting August 7.


In the coming months, we will be releasing a variety of new key chains. The first three feature mini-handbags that double as coin pouches.


I thought you’d enjoy seeing this sneak preview of Disney character inspired key chains arriving later this fall.
