In case you haven’t seen it yet, “Inside Out” takes a look at the life of a girl named Riley, who moves with her family from the Midwest to San Francisco. Her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – live in Headquarters, the control center of her mind, where they help guide her through her daily life, including the challenge of taking on a new school and friends.

Today we’re sharing a tutorial on how to draw Anger, a member of the team who is passionate, fiery and quick to react.

First Look: New Menu Items at The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

posted on June 25th, 2015 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator


There’s no better place in Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see and be seen than The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge. Especially with the addition of small plates and beverages with the newly renovated outdoor bar.

New small plates include grilled Bloody Mary-marinated shrimp and chorizo and heirloom tomatoes on toasted ciabatta with garlic herb butter and a new seasonal soup — Zellwood Corn Bisque, served with a corn and lobster fritter and Ancho chili oil. Or share the Crispy Bites, featuring parmesan and goat cheese risotto sticks with a peach-habanero chili sauce, Brie with a sweet onion and orange jam, and affiné blue and mushroom arancini with a fig and balsamic dip. These new tastes join favorites like The Famous Hollywood Brown Derby Cobb Salad, Derby Sliders, and Artisanal Cheeses and Charcuterie Board.

New additions to the drink menu include a Mint Julep made with premium reserve bourbon; the new Bloody Mary turns up the heat with pepper-infused vodka and a garnish of olives, spicy pickles, and pickled green beans; a Champagne Cocktail with sweet and floral elderflower liqueur and Fairytale by Iron Horse Celebration Cuvee (exclusive to Walt Disney Parks and Resorts); Sangria; and, my favorite, the Grapefruit Cake Martini — a delicious twist on the classic dessert.

Stop by The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge to take in the sights, sounds and tastes of Hollywood and leave feeling like a star!

Disneyland Resort, Angels Baseball and Anaheim Ducks Make A Difference in Anaheim One ACT at a Time

posted on June 24th, 2015 by Kevin Rafferty, Jr., Communications Specialist, Disneyland Resort


Last year, I told you about the Disneyland Resort, Angels Baseball and the Anaheim Ducks joining together to provide more opportunities to thousands of Anaheim youth through a collaboration called Accelerate Change Together for Anaheim (ACT Anaheim). To kick off ACT Anaheim, our three organizations committed $3 million over the span of three years for the creation and expansion of youth programs with local nonprofits.

ACT85859424

During its first grant cycle, ACT Anaheim awarded $1.5 million to 10 nonprofits, which provided enhanced and expanded services to nearly 2,500 Anaheim youth. ACT II was announced earlier this month to the tune of $2 million for 14 nonprofits. We’ve already exceeded our initial goal, with ACT Anaheim funding a total $3.5 million to local nonprofits in just two years thanks to additional individuals and companies who have joined the cause!

Here is a look at some of the achievements ACT Anaheim recipients made with the help of those first funds:

  • Through GOALS’ (Growth Opportunities through Athletics, Learning and Service) Special Sports program, GOALS teens play hockey, volleyball, soccer and other sports with their buddies with disabilities from the Orange County Adult Achievement Center.
  • Anaheim Family YMCA teens explore all kinds of activities, including snorkeling and archery, at Camp Fox, an overnight summer camp.
  • Anaheim high school students prepare for college and careers through the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Career & College Access Immersion Program at the Tiger Woods Learning Center.
  • Anaheim junior high school students create their own superhero identities as part of Girls Inc.’s Mind+Body program focusing on fitness, nutrition, body image and stress management.
