Memories and Reflections from 2012 Disneyland Candlelight Ceremony Narrators

posted on December 24th, 2012 by Donna Fisk, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort


One of the great holiday traditions here at the Disneyland Resort is the Candlelight Ceremony and Processional. Featuring a cast member choir, as well as a full orchestra and other choirs from around Southern California, the ceremony in Town Square at Disneyland park is majestic. I had the privilege to sing in this ceremony in 2003, and this year I had the great privilege to interview some of the celebrity narrators for this year’s performances. Please take a look at some highlights from this year as well as some very special comments from our narrators.

New Lamb and Calf Join Circle D Family at Disneyland Park

posted on November 14th, 2012 by Donna Fisk, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort


UPDATE: The results are in! Our new calf’s name is Clarabelle and our new lamb’s name is Thunder. Thanks to everyone who came out to vote!

This summer we welcomed our new sheep, Bolt, to Big Thunder Ranch in Disneyland park, and tomorrow two more little friends will join him. A 6-month-old Babydoll sheep, born in Northern California, and a 7-month-old miniature Hereford cow, born in La Cresta, Calif., will begin appearing at the ranch tomorrow.

  • Moo-leficent
  • Minnie
  • Drizella

Sheep names:

  • Thunder
  • Rhino
  • Lightning
  • Mater
  • Frollo

Remember – you’ve got to vote in-person at Big Thunder Ranch this Friday and Saturday, so come out to Disneyland park and help give these new Circle D cuties their names!

See Big Thunder Ranch at Disneyland Resort Through Our ‘Goat Cam’

posted on October 16th, 2012 by Donna Fisk, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort


Hi, Disney Parks Blog – I’m Donna Fisk, a member of the Broadcast News team at the Disneyland Resort. I’m also a huge animal lover, so I’m very excited that I will be bringing you the latest “animal news” happening here at the resort.

In a festive nod to the spooky season, the goats at Big Thunder Ranch are gussied up each day with their very own Halloween kerchiefs. Did you know each goat is named for a Disney character? We paid our Disney goats a visit recently and let them get in on the action by helping shoot the video below. Using a very lightweight camera carried by the goats themselves, we get to see the petting zoo, the guests and even the other goats from a unique point of view. We call it, “Goat Cam.” Special thanks to Pongo, Dory, Madame Mim, Madame Leota, Shock, Barrel and Jane, who helped us create this video. Take a look and come see our goats during Halloween Time!
