Sunday Night Finds

  • Best wishes for a quick recovery for Adrian Bailey. Bailey fell 20 feet from a set-piece on the set of The Little Mermaid Musical and ended up in the hospital. The show had not yet begun, so the audience was not witness to the fall.
  • The fans trying to save Disney’s Virtual Magic Kingdom held their real world protest at Disneyland on Saturday and unfortunately it was a bit of a bust. The OC Register reports only 12 people showed up. That’s not to belittle the passion felt by the protesters, but it’s not the type of showing that’s going to make the Walt Disney Company sit up and take notice.
  • Forbes has noticed that Euro Disney (a.ka. Paris Disneyland) is finally starting to sparkle. Some decent investment in new attractions and voila, profit. Funny how that happens.
  • Kevin Kidney is back with a great look at one of the lost items from Disneyland’s History – The Frito Kid. Kidney even reveals a new collectible figure of the famed icon.
  • The Blog Wore Tennis Shoes is another Disney history blog. Some great photos of early Walt Disney World this week have me entranced.
  • That WALL-E robot I heard will be appearing in Disney’s theme parks will be making a few stops in schools first. It’s a contest and you can enter here. There’s also a new Build-A-Bot feature over on the official WALL-E website that is a lot of fun.
