Disney Parks Unforgettable Christmas Celebration Taping Continues!

posted on November 11th, 2015 by Anne Macklin, Talent Relations Manager, Disney Destinations

Today we met up with four more outstanding musicians performing in this year’s Disney Parks Unforgettable Christmas Celebration including country music’s beloved, Reba McEntire. Reba couldn’t resist a quick photo with Woody from Disney•ŸPixarToy Story” during a break from taping. Reba sang one of her favorite Christmas tunes, but you’ll have to tune in Christmas Day to find out which one!


The Christmas celebration wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Santa Goofy! Check out British soul and R&B singer/songwriter Seal’s close-up. I wonder if he shared his Christmas list with Santa Goofy?


Breakout artist Tori Kelly snaps a quick pic with Chip and Dale as she steps off stage following her performances for this year’s Disney Parks Unforgettable Christmas Celebration. Tori is also a featured artist on the “We Love Disney” album which was released last month by Walt Disney Records.


Janel Parrish, one of the stars of “Pretty Little Liars” on ABC Family (soon to be Freeform), also met up with Stitch during a break from taping. Janel is serving as the music correspondent for the show.


YouTube singer, songwriter Charlie Puth also performed for the Christmas celebration today!
Check out the 32nd annual holiday telecast where will air nationwide on Dec. 25 at 10 a.m. ET and 9 a.m. CST, MST and PST on ABC-TV.

Thanks to photographers Mark Ashman and Mariah Wild for the photos!

Toy Story Mania Cel Debut and Artist Signing

posted on June 14th, 2010 by Dara Trujillo, Manager, Merchandise Synergy, Events, and Communication

Toy Story Mania Cel

Toy Story mania is taking over the “world” … Walt Disney World, that is! Are you as excited about the new film as I am? I can’t wait to see so many new characters and old favorites on the big screen again. And if you’re anything like me then you probably love riding on our Toy Story Mania attraction — it’s one of my kids’ favorites and we go on it every time we’re at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I have to say I have the family high score.

As you can imagine, we have great new merchandise out especially for Toy Story 3, but one of the things I’m eager to share with you is our Toy Story Mania Ink and Paint Cel. This is one of the newest additions to the Disney Theme Park Exclusive Ink and Paint Cel Collections.

Insider Tip: Did you know that the image of Woody in this cel is actually hand-painted by the Ink & Paint team?

Because we know the film is going to be such a hit, we know this cel will be, too. There are only 1500 pieces available, and I know they’ll go fast. The image is available in quite a few formats, but my personal favorite is when it comes framed with a specially designed pin and signed postcard.

If you’re at Walt Disney World, come out on June 19 when we release this exciting new piece at Studios Animation Gallery at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We’ll even have some of our Disney Design Group and Ink & Paint Artists on hand to sign these fun new pieces.

Can’t make it to the release, but still want to bring the fun home? No problem! You can pre-order the Toy Story Mania Cel with Walt Disney Event Service at 407.827.7600. Artists scheduled to appear include: Costa Alavezos, James Bonserio, Erin Magill, Theodora M. DeLaney, David Rippberger, Lynn Rippberger, Sharon K. Vincent.
