Jingle Cruise is a bungle in the jungle, thanks -- in large part -- to the way this new holiday overlay has been promoted
So where exactly -- in the great holiday scheme of things -- does Disneyland Park 's latest attempt at a seasonal overlay fall? Is the Jingle Cruise that Xmas gift which you've always dreamed of getting or more of an itchy sweater? Changing a single letter makes a really big difference at this...

Monday Mouse Watch: How the team behind Disney's "Get A Horse!" uses breakthrough technology to create the look of a 1928 short
When a forger is trying to make a document look older than it actually is, they'll sometimes use tea or tobacco to stain the paper that this item is printed on. And when a furniture maker is trying to make a table or a dresser look like an authentic antique, they'll sometimes beat on that item...

The Headless Horseman heads on out, expanding his turf beyond Walt Disney World for the 2013 Halloween season
You think -- what with all the attention that he's been getting lately -- you'd think that the Headless Horseman would have a bigger head. If he had a head, I mean. Copyright 2013 FOX and its related entities. All rights reserved To explain: Until relatively recently, if you were looking for...

Monday Mouse Watch: Why that AVATAR concept art got unveiled in Japan rather than stateside. And what's in the works for the Disneyland Resort in regards to "Star Wars"
It's been a busy couple of days, Disney news-wise. With all sorts of official announcements being made and weird rumors bubbling up.

A respectful retheming & fast service make the Market House Starbucks a welcome addition to Disneyland's Main Street U.S.A.
Late last week, I was out west for a Disney "Frozen" media event (Don't worry. JHM will be posting a bunch of stories about this new Walt Disney Animation Studios production in the coming weeks). And before I flew back home to New Hampshire on Saturday night, I made a quick side trip to...

"Everything by Design" offers a detailed look at the development of Disney World's never-built Mediterranean Village Resort
Jody R. tossed me a note over this past weekend, praising last Tuesday's "Building Tall" story , saying that ... ... it's articles like this that keep me coming back to Jim Hill Media, that keep me listening to that podcast you do with Len Testa . Your ability to continually uncover...

No foolin'. Here's a story about that Star Wars-themed dual track coaster which Imagineers thought about building back in the 1980s
Given that April 1st is typically the day when a number of Disney news sites post these elaborate prank stories where they then try & convince a few poor April Fools that their obviously bogus article is legit, I thought that JHM should go the other way today. In that I'm going to post a story...

Are Disney's new interactive queues actually encouraging theme park Guests to be more destructive?
Figment's Friend sent me a rather anxious e-mail last week. This JHM reader wanted to share a bit of news coming out of WDW's Magic Kingdom which had really upset him: Did you see what happened to that portrait of Tony Baxter which was hung in the new interactive queue of Big Thunder Mountain...

"Hatch! Brainstorming Secrets of a Theme Park Designer" takes you inside the development of Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Chris sent me an e-mail earlier this week in regards to the "Unofficial Guide Disney Dish" podcast that I do with Len Testa , where he asked: "Where do you get all of the stories that you tell on these podcasts? I'm a big Disney history buff. But you always seem to have these behind...

Why For did Universal Orlando sell off all of that property it bought from Lockheed Martin?
Paul G writes in to ask: Why on earth are so many Disney fan websites so negative? There are a good number of them that I don't even look at anymore because they spend so much time complaining about every last little thing. They are so negative! (thank you Jim for being one of the few who, while...
