The Morning Report

It’s an honor and a privilege, a duty I perform
With due sense of decorum and with pride
With deference and great respect very much the norm
Plus a hint of sycophancy on the side
To lay before my ruler all the facts about his realm
To fill him in on all the beastly news
– Zazu, The Lion King

Alain Littaye discovers the origin of Ray Bradbury’s quote about Walt Disney’s Imagineers – “You Are… Renaissance People.

Barbara Walters to end her Oscars Special. This time there will be happy tears.

Walt Disney World was cleared by OSHA in the Indiana Jones Stuntman’s death
. The tragedy occurred during tumbling rehearsals for the show.

Bids for Disney’s boutique studio Miramax are due tomorrow
. You might need a spare $100 to be competitive.

A fast by protesting Disney hotel workers union members has ended. I’m wondering what they have in store next?

Cars 2 gets its engined tuned
. This is a natural process of animation, so I’m not worried, yet.

Waldameer amusement park in Pennsylvania is going cashless. Is this a vision of things to come to Walt Disney World when the next-gen project is revealed?

    I live about two hours from Waldemeer, so I might have to check that out this spring.

  2. The Disney News Morning Report is up – http://bit.ly/asWr82 – I think this is the format I like the best.

    well, i *was* planning to finally mention that the pictures in your rss feed have been broken for quite a while (i follow from the livejournal syndication, as do 34 others apparently), and that it was now breaking the formatting of the entire page because of all the broken picture links resulting from the digg/reddit/facebook/twitter/etc icons, but now it seems to be fixed! not sure if it’s something that you did, or if it’s something that just worked itself out, but either way, it makes me a happier disney blog reader! :)

    my only request now would be the ability to subscribe to comments via email, so that if someone replies to a comment i’ve left, i’m notified. even if it just notified me when a new comment was left on an entry to which i’ve subscribed to the comments, that would work as well. i do see the little “subscribe” button from feedburner down the right column, but i assume that’s to have the entries emailed to you rather than subscribing to comments.

    Didn’t Disney already try something like this with Disney Dollars?

    I think the difference is that you’ll be required to go cashless. It will all be through your room key or admission card. I’m also hearing that it will be via a wrist band or star trek like pin you wear on the outside of your shirt or on a lanyard.

    Personally, I’d prefer the Star Trek pin. All I would need is a communicator and a phaser… :)
