  • has coverage of the ceremony announcing the 2008 Walt Disney World Ambassadors held at Animal Kingdom. Congrats to the new Ambassadors: T.C. Newman
    from College & CareerStart Recruiting who began her Disney career
    in Disneyland Entertainment and has been at the Walt Disney World
    Resort since 2001 and Kerri MacPherson from Walt Disney Parks &
    Resorts Sales who joined the Disney team 13 years ago through the
    College program at the Magic Kingdom’s Outdoor Foods.
  • Part-time employees at Walt Disney World will now be paid according to the same pay scale as their full time associates. Some will see a raise of as much as $2.00 an hour.
  • TikiTalk has an interesting rumor that artist SHAG may be designing a line of merchandise for Walt Disney World in 2008. I hope this is true, I’ve just started a pennies jar to buy a Shag Tiki Shirt.
  • CNN has more on how ticket brokers are ruining the fun for fans of Disney’s Hannah Montana, aka, Miley Cyrus.
  • More from the brewing scandal over at The Children’s Place, operators of The Disney Stores in the US. Ousted CEO Ezra Dabah has fired back at his critics, and it’s not just an empty threat. He remains the largest shareholder in the company and has a seat on the board.
  • CartoonBrew heard news of a recent public screening of Disney’s "Song Of The South". Apparently there have been no protests. No word if future screenings will happen or if Disney had a hand in this.
