Remembering Joe Grant (1908-2005)
How do you sum up the life of someone like Joe Grant? I mean -- sure -- at Disney, the term "Legend" gets tossed around a lot. But "Legend" isn't quite big enough to sum up who Joe Grant was, what he truly meant to the Walt Disney Company. Though small in stature, Grant was Feature Animation's equivalent...

Could we all be wrong about Hong Kong?
"It's too small." Photo by Seth Kubersky Ask any Disney dweeb about what they think of the soon-to-be-opening Hong Kong Disneyland. And I can virtually guarantee you that the very first thing out of their mouths will be a complaint about the size of that theme park. They'll moan about how the Walt Disney...

First up, Peter S. writes in to ask: Jim -- Sorry to hear about you missing out on the Disneyland's 50th celebration. But look on the bright side: This was just the kick-off of the "Happiest Homecoming" festivities. Disneyland's real birthday isn't 'til July 17th. So why don't you have Angela & Jeff...

Which then leads to the creation of a new ride, show or attraction for the theme parks that's based on that film. Of course, over the past five years (What with the production of those...

"Disneyland: Then, Now And Forever" & "Around the World with Disney" are must-haves for any serious Disney theme park fan
Let me guess. You're feeling somewhat depressed today because you're not at "The Happiest Place on Earth" as Disneyland's 50th anniversary officially gets underway. Well, join the club. I was actually scheduled to be out in Anaheim today. I'd purchased a plane ticket, arranged for a rental car as well...

DCA backlot to be beautified, Crush to soon set up shop inside "Magic of Disney Animation" (UPDATED. WITH PICS.)
Photo by Jeff Lange Okay. Maybe you've already seen pictures of the exterior of DCA's new "Monsters, Inc." attraction. Which (obviously) apes the look of the title sequence of that 2001 Pixar Animation Studios release. And maybe you've also already heard about how this redo of "Superstar Limo" will be...

"Nemo" attraction to cleverly mix old & new
Okay. So the construction fence has gone up and the water level has gone down. So what happens next in Disneyland's Submarine Lagoon? What's first on WDI's "To Do" list as work finally gets underway on the "Finding Nemo" project? Well -- for starters -- Disneyland's Press & Publicity Office has to...

How do you follow up Hong Kong Disneyland? Would you believe building a new Disneyland in New Delhi?
It's t-minus 10 days 'til the official kick-off of Disneyland's 50th anniversary. So you'd think that Michael Eisner -- the company's out-going CEO -- would be sticking close to home. Making sure that everything was in readiness for next week's start of that 18-month-long celebration in honor of the...

Next Stop: Tatooine?
Mark January 9, 2007 on your calendar. Why for? Because that's the 20th anniversary of the grand opening of Disneyland's "Star Tours." And -- in honor of this very auspicious occasion -- rumors are now flying that StarSpeeder 3000 may begin flying to a brand new destination on that very same date. Mind...
