The Happiest Place on Earth Just Got Happier

The Disney California Adventure park expansion culminated this week with a rededication ceremony hosted by The Walt Disney Company CEO, Bob Iger. The ceremony celebrated the more than 20 new attractions, shows and experiences added to Disney California Adventure park over the last five years.

With the addition of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street, guests will enjoy a full-day experience at Disney California Adventure park, including nighttime entertainment experiences like “Mad T Party,” a family dance party inspired by Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” and the water spectacular “World of Color.” With myriad new additions, the Disneyland Resort will continue to drive tourism to Southern California for years to come.

“From the thrills of Cars Land to the romance of Buena Vista Street, the work that’s been done throughout this entire expansion is extraordinary,” said Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts. “Disney California Adventure park is a testament to what we at Disney Parks do best – connecting our guests to the iconic stories, characters and music they love, helping them make shared memories to last a lifetime.”

Travel Tip: Disney’s California Adventure Closed on June 14th, 2012

Disneyland Resort Hosts Celebration of Creativity in the Deaf Community

 

The Disneyland Resort hosted SIGNin’ in the Street at Downtown Disney last month, a first-of-its-kind event at any Disney property celebrating creativity in the deaf community. The event, which underscores Disney’s commitment to diversity, provided guests the opportunity to learn more about deaf culture through performances, workshops, screenings and celebrity presentations. Appearances by the stars of ABC Family’s hit series “Switched at Birth” rounded out the weekend, which drew thousands to experience the talent of both deaf and hearing artists alike.

Thanks for reading and have a great Thanksgiving holiday!

 

Better Looks + More Energy Efficient – Noise = New Window!

Nowadays everyone’s all about ‘Going Green’.  We are also committed this noble idea whenever we are considering an amenity upgrade.  Recently we have just completed a major renovation on all of our guest room windows that not only improve our exterior looks, but also substantially reduce the noise from outside corridor as well as keeping the room warmer during winter and cooler during summer.  This is all part of an on-going property improvement that will provide great value to all of our guests.  Our goal is to make each and everyone of our room as comfortable as possible so you’ll feel right at home.  Thanks for reading, and we look forward to seeing you during this holiday season!
