Disneyland Resort Entertainment Team Shares Their Favorite Festive Feature for ‘it’s a small world’ Holiday

posted on November 17th, 2014 by Shannon Swanson, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort


If you happened to see the video I posted back in September showing the Haunted Mansion Holiday magical makeover, you may recognize some of the talented “elves” in this video. Once again, I’ve asked the Disneyland Resort Entertainment team to show me their favorite holiday enhancements; only this time they are creating “it’s a small world” Holiday at Disneyland park.

My favorite addition to “it’s a small world” Holiday has to be the clock show, which debuted last year. What’s yours?

Disney Infinity 2.0 Ready To Roll Across Walt Disney World Resort This Month

posted on November 17th, 2014 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


I have some exciting news for fans of Disney Infinity. To celebrate the release of Disney Infinity 2.0, guests will soon find five Walt Disney World Resort busses with specially designed wraps. Our partners with Walt Disney Imagineering created these new wraps featuring characters from the game. They are the same team that designed the previous Walt Disney World monorail wraps like my favorite one created for Disney’s “TRON: Legacy“.

We recently took a photo of one of the busses near Once Upon a Toy in Downtown Disney Marketplace. That location is the headquarters for all things related to Disney Infinity 2.0. I attended the early release party with my son a few weeks ago where we picked up the new starter set. We also added a few figures to his ever growing collection such as Baymax from Disney’s “Big Hero 6” now in theatres. He spent the rest of that weekend playing the game and creating new worlds to explore. I’m sure he will love taking a ride on these Disney Infinity-themed busses!
