Hello everyone,

On this day, 18th September, in 1987 Disney premiered two of its most popular television shows of all time - DuckTales and Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers.

Let's celebrate in our usual Character Central style with some of our favourite DuckTakes and Rescue Rangers character photos from the Disney Parks!

Happy Birthday Gadget, Launchpad and all the other stars that debuted that day!

Halloween News for Disney Cruise Line and Disneyland Paris, and more!
DisneyDan  Wednesday, July 17, 2013 2:13:30 PM
Hello everyone,

Today the Disney Parks Blog announced that for Halloween Season this year aboard all ships sailing between late September and the end of October would feature Halloween costume parties with the Disney characters, as well as other small entertainment and food offerings.
On the Disney Dream though, they seem to be going a bit further, and for the first time there will be a special programme of entertainment specifically for that ship, which includes a full deck party/show titled 'Mickey's Calling All the Monsters Mouse-Querade Deck Party', greetings with Jack and Sally, and Halloween storytelling with a "mysterious Sea Captain" (I wonder if Captain Hook will show up?...).
The whole event will be called Halloween on the High Seas.

The Blog promised that an announcement about Christmas on the ships would come tomorrow - we look forward to hearing what new things they'll be offering!

Staying with Halloween, and French forum ameworld posted what appears to be an official statement from Disney regarding Halloween this year, though Disney themselves haven't released anything yet. The news is that the Castle Stage show Mickey's Halloween Treat in the Street will not return for a third year, but instead we will see a brand new Halloween cavalcade that will feature Mickey and friends, including Huey, Dewey, Louie, Scrooge McDuck and for what is believed to be the first time ever at DLP, Clarabelle Cow!
All other regular Halloween elements are expected to return, such as meeting the Disney characters in special costumes including a brand new location for Minnie, and the return of Bon Bon Goofy in Town Square, greetings with the ever popular Disney Villains, Jack and Sally in Frontierland, and all the cool decorations that usually feature throughout the park. Disney's Halloween Party will also feature on 31st October, as it always does.
Jon and I will be at DLP for Halloween Season again this year and cannot wait to see the new cavalcade!

Finally, today is Disneyland in California's 58th Birthday, and so if you're going to be there, or thinking about going, you should know that there will be "something special" happening Town Square at 2.30pm Pacific Standard Time this afternoon! In the past these celebrations have usually involved a rededication of sorts, and a vast number of random Disney characters appearing for a brief time (flashmob style).

Ok, I think that's everything for now. I'll try to make an update tomorrow when we hear from Disney about the winter Cruise offerings.

BREAKING NEWS - Exciting BIG New Changes to Disneyland Paris's Mickey's Not So Scary revealed!
DisneyDan  Sunday, September 18, 2011 11:37:52 AM

Hi all,

I have some big news regarding Disneyland Paris's Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Parties that was revealed to me today!

A good friend of ours, who has good inside contacts has told me that for the first time since the parties began three years ago, they are having a complete change of the entertainment offerings for the four ticketed evenings.

Let us begin with what is being ditched. The Merlin Witch Academy show at Castle Courtyard has been dropped, the Cavalcade and the Winnie the Pooh show.

They have been, for the last three years, the key events of the evenings, apart from the character meets of course.

The other key event of the parties was a stage show, which this year is being replaced with a new unique finale show.

The Winnie the Pooh show is being replaced with a new 'Minnie's Pirate Halloween Party', a Minnie Mouse happening over at the new Peter Pan stage in Adventureland. She will wear a new Pirate outfit.

The biggest news of all is that the Merlin replacement will be a new happening with none other than Huey, Dewey and Louie!! Titled 'Huey, Dewey and Louie's Trick or Treat Party', this will be the first time in MANY years that the three nephews will appear for regular park guests.

Of course, before you all go rushing off checking the pages on this site, Jon and I have met Huey, Dewey and Louie a number of times in the last year at DLP, but these were always at exclusive special events that we were invited to, and not available to the public. I just thought I would clarify that point!

This is really exciting news for not just Disneyland Paris, but character fans, and I am pleased to be able to share it here exclusively first!

If and when I hear more details I will of course let you all know!

Hi all,

It has been a while since I updated properly here, but as you all know we have been away on a mega trip to DLP and DL CA!

As I stated earlier in the week, we have been working hard to get as much new content from the trip up as possible, but it takes time.

There hasn't been too much news since we went away, but here is a round-up of what I have heard.  [ Read More... ]
