A Message from Bob: Roy E. Disney Passes Away

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Dear Cast Members,

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of our friend and colleague Roy E. Disney. After a courageous year-long fight with stomach cancer, he passed away peacefully this morning at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, surrounded by his loving family.

Roy played an important role in our lives here at Disney, and in the success of our Company over many years. Along the way, he touched many of us in a personal way. During his 56-year association with the Company, his true passion and focus was preserving and building upon the amazing legacy of Disney animation that was started by his father and uncle. His commitment to the art of animation was unparalleled and will always remain his personal legacy and one of the greatest contributions to Disney's past, present and future.

Roy not only helped to keep the legacy alive, but he also embraced new technologies, and gave the filmmakers the tools they needed to tell their stories in new and exciting ways. He encouraged talent, and loved working with the creative community. And they loved working with him.

Roy was a Disney Legend in every sense of the word, and his contributions to this great Company have been profound and will always be remembered. For the next week we will be flying the Disney flag at half mast here at the Studio and at our parks, and I know you join me in sending thoughts and prayers to Roy's wife, Leslie, his four children, and his 16 grandchildren. For those who wish to pay their respects, the family has requested that donations be made in Roy's name to the California International Sailing Association (CISA) to benefit youth sailing.

This Day in Disney: Walter Elias Disney Passes Away

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

IllumiNations: Special Christmas Finale

Saturday, December 12, 2009

Can you feel it? The Spirit of the Season is everywhere!!! Only at this time of the year we've got the Special Christmas Finale from IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

After the regular fireworks, Disney added a 4 minutes show to wish us all Peace on Earth and Good Will to Man!!!

It's starts with a female voice saying:

"And now at this special time as we embrace a promise of a new year we would like to share one final message"

Then the song "Let There be Peace on Earth" is played with the fireworks.

After this, we got messages of Peace on Earth in several languages while the respective pavilion lights up.

Walter Cronkite voice's is now heard:

"During this glorious time of year there is one message that rings out around the world in every language: Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men! Is a wish to hold in our hearts throughout each passing year. A gift of immeasurable value. A treasure being handed down with care from generation to generation. And so our holiday wish is that everyone, everywhere share in the spirit of the season: Peace on Earth, good will to men."

It's a very emotional part of the show and it touches me deeply.

Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. (November 4, 1916 – July 17, 2009) was an American broadcast journalist, best known as "the most trusted man in America" after being so named in an opinion poll.

Holiday Wishes

Sunday, December 6, 2009

At the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Holiday Wishes replaces the regular wishes fireworks. It’s a nighttime spectacular even more amazing that orchestrates the fireworks to holiday tunes.

The show premiered in 2005 and was created by the Disney Creative Entertainment which is the theatrical and technical live entertainment production division of Walt Disney Imagineering, a fully-owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. It features a 180 degree fireworks presentations in various portions.

The first time I saw Holiday Wishes as a Cast Member was in december 2008. I was working in the Fantasyland and saw the fireworks show from behind the castle during my break. This first time I paid more attention to people and their reactions than to the fireworks itself and my favorite part is ALWAYS when the big crowd cheers the Holiday Wishes finale. "May all our Christmas Wishes Come True" :)

On another post, I said that I worked twice as Character Attendant and was Belle who taught me how to go to the roof to see the fireworks :)

In this videos, you'll see the entire show and the after-show song with some nice footage in the last one. And always remember: Home is where your heart is :)
