Hello everyone,

We have had an exceptionally busy weekend and so I didn't get chance to post these sadly, but here we are now!

Let's see who was behind doors eleven and twelve!

Happy 12th Birthday Lilo and Stitch!
DisneyDan  Saturday, June 21, 2014 11:32:54 AM
Hello everyone,

Today is the 12th anniversary of the general release of Disney's Lilo and Stitch. Although I would normally go by premiere date for birthdays, I was out of the country on Monday (16th) when it was theirs. Therefore their general release date is considered their secondary birthday!

Without further delay here are a cavalcade of pictures of the stars of the film, Stitch, Lilo, Captain Gantu and Dr Jumba Jookiba!

Happy 12th Birthday Walt Disney Studios Park!
DisneyDan  Sunday, March 16, 2014 7:27:59 AM
Today, 12th March 2014, is the 12th anniversary of the grand opening of Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris.

A lot has changed over the last 12 years, and the park has continued to grow into its own identity; a park filled with great shows, thrilling attractions and of course our favourite Disney character friends.

The park is not without its flaws though, and while many often claim that is lacks the attraction count of the other parks it does have 14 permanent attractions, 2 long running "permanent" shows, a parade, character greetings, and of course shops and restaurants. Of those 14 attractions and 2 shows, 5 are completely unique to Walt Disney Studios, and many of the others have a definite Parisian twist or alterations to them to make them "distinctly Disneyland Paris".

Later this year the park will be opening a brand new attraction, again that will be completely unique, which will utilise new technologies. "Ratatouille: L'Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy" will whisk guests into the world of Remy and Emile from Disney-PIXAR's Ratatouille, shrinking them down to size in a magnificent Parisian adventure! As well as the attraction, the park will gain a brand new restaurant and a new store, too.

We very much look forward to the next 12 years as the Walt Disney Studios continues to grow. It'll bring more depth and more storytelling to its lands, binding together the magical worlds of Disney and the wonders of movie world.

For this photo tribute, I have deliberately left out many character photos, as we nearly always post characters shots to the blog anyway. I thought the park deserved some attention for its 12th birthday, and so nearly everything you see below are non-character photos, but of course, I have thrown a few character ones in for good measure!

Happy 12th Birthday Disney California Adventure!
DisneyDan  Friday, February 8, 2013 11:17:14 AM
On this day in 2001, Disney's California Adventure Park (now simply Disney California Adventure) was opened for the first time to the public.
Throughout the years it has undergone some extreme changes, which culminated in it's grand re-launch last summer.

Now, with Cars Land, Buena Vista Street and the amazing entertainment and characters that they have in DCA, it really is a fantastic Disney Park and one I am sure Walt would be proud to have facing his beloved Disneyland.

You can check out our dedicated DCA page here, and discover all of it's shows, attractions, restaurants, stores and more!

Of course, we are going to celebrate in Character Central style with a photo cavalcade!   [ Read More... ]
