#NEWS- “Fantasmic!” Fast Pass and New Dining Plans All-in-One Information Post! Starting Friday, December 12th 2014, “Fantasmic!” will be offering a Fast Pass option for  More...
Tagged in: Fantasmic!  Food  NEWS  
Just an FYI-DCA GC is being scheduled to help with Fantasmic since we work WOC. I personally have a shift on Monday 12/15 and I'm excited but nervous. I'm excited that I'll be working on the DL side doing a show I've never done before. I'm excited that I get to help fellow CMs with something that is new to them. I'm nervous because of all the push back and assumptions I'm hearing from everyone before this new system even starts. Disney is constantly looking to improve the guest experience, not make it worse. No one seems to like change but we all adapt quickly and things always seem to work out for the better. As Walt said himself, "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." I can tell you first had that every CM I know strives to preserve Walts vision, tradition and legacy daily. We do it because it's what makes Disneyland magical. Ok-I'm off my soap box, LOL  - CM_Tamstirr   548.2 #326 12-10-14 10:53PM Like(12)  Reply

@draven898 I definitely will! I hope to report the best but will report the worst if necessary. I am confident though - missmimi90  1538.9 #87 12-9-14 3:37PM
For the dining packages, are the reserved seating areas towards the front on those chairs like it was before the switch? I've only seen the show once and it was near haunted mansion and the standing area. I saw people being served up towards the front and were on chairs. Thanks for all the info! - Evalyn31Britt   25.4 #5748 12-11-14 4:54PM Like  Reply
Those were the old dessert package which is now not available. The viewing areas for the dining packages will be a combo of standing and sitting.  - BaseballMickey_CM  6330.3 #12 12-11-14 7:29PM

#News- Starting January 7th, 2015- "Frozen Fun" will debut at Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure Park. Some of the highlights include:  - "For the First Time in Forever- A Frozen Sing a Long Cel  More...

Here's my thoughts about this- with a new change coming to Hollywood Land, this will attract more guests of all ages to the area. Over the last few years, Stage 17 has never been used to what it's really built for: large events. Okay, once in a while, there will be big events like Dancing with Disney, the Gospel Celebration, AP and CM events, but its mostly empty throughout the year. Its a really big building that you can pretty much start from scratch in there. Also, attendance in the Muppets theater has (sadly) decreased, thus having two big empty buildings in a land. Across the way, the Toy Story Zoetrope (sp?) also had decreasing numbers of the years. How do I know that? For a whole day last year, I had to walk around Hollywood Land and count all of the guests in certain landmarks to help out our industrial engineering department and most of the time, nobody was over in that corner looking at the display. With the Animation Academy exiting to that corner, it makes a perfect place to move Anna and Elsa over there, giving a more private area than the current place in Fantasyland. If you think they're over doing it, I don't think so. First, this movie is the top earning animated movie of all time. With all of the competition in animation, not any company can say that, expect Disney. It was Walt that actually wanted to do this story in the 1940s/50s, but instead did Cinderella. Secondly, it still has a big following. Merch from not just the parks, but around the world is still selling well. The soundtrack is still being listened to on iTunes, Spotify and other sites as well. To see the other perspective of this, what if Frozen was a flop in the theaters and Disney was stuck being behind other companies at the box office? We would probably be back to the early 2000s when the animation studios was in rut, trying to crank out any film they could to get to be a hit. In conclusion, its a great idea and I really look forward to seeing it all. Just my thoughts... - BaseballMickey_CM   6330.3 #12 12-5-14 12:01PM Like(27)  Reply
I totally agree!  I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but the demand is absolutely huge and all these things WILL be popular. - Sarafina  456.1 #411 12-5-14 12:07PM
Mad T wasn't my cup of tea, (no pun intended), so seeing change is nice - BaseballMickey_CM  6330.3 #12 12-5-14 12:14PM
So I guess there was no one in the Disney board room willing to say, "Okay guys, let's not over do it." - NotNKansasAnymor   283.8 #917 12-5-14 11:36AM Like(12)  Reply

Welcome to the blessing/curse of having Disneyland be our home! In DisneyWorld - they can add attractions, because of limited space, we have to lose stuff from time to time. Change is always hard. Glad to see Stage 17 used for something though!  - TinkerSchelle   1200.6 #118 12-9-14 4:31PM Like  Reply

We love Fantasmic, but usually just grab a spot at the last minute on the occasions when our timing jibes.  Will that still be possible, I wonder?  I'll be watching to see how this works out. IMHO the fast pass system for WOC doesn't work unless you are also willing to spend at least an hour holding a spot. Longer if you are short like me. If you only get a few days a year, spending that kind of time on one attraction sometimes doesn't seem like the best use of time. I've been about six times but only saw the show once due to kids on shoulders ( I'm seriously short). - DeneciePie   324.8 #688 11-13-14 6:20PM Like  Reply
