Halls of Animation

The next Animator that we are going to look at, from the walls of the Art of Animation in Walt Disney Studios is David S. Hall (1905-1964).

Born in Ireland, Hall is probably most famed for some of his artwork based on Alice in Wonderland.

As inspirational sketch artist
Peter Pan (1953)
Alice in Wonderland (1951)
Bambi (1942)

Take a Cold Shower

When visiting Disney's California Adventure, sometimes it can end up being quite warm and sweaty! But don't worry, you can get a nice, cold shower for only 5 cents!

However, if you are perfectly fine but fancy a spot of fishing, looks like it's a popular spot here for taking the time to catch some fish!

Details of the Hightower

We've spent a few days away from Tokyo DisneySea, but we head back over to have a detailed look at the family crest on the Hotel Hightower, or better known as the Tower of Terror.

As we can see, the motto on this crest is:
Mundus Mea Ostrea Est

Or roughly translate, The World Is My Oyster. Supremely appropriate for Harrison Hightower!

Enjoying a Moment...In Venice?

Shut your open them!
It Could Be Venice (TDS)
We're enjoying a moment in Venice - or, more accurately, in Tokyo DisneySea. Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Blue Sky Cars - Day 1

To prepare the world for the opening of Cars Land in Disney's California Adventure, DF'82 is going to spend the next few days having a look at some of the details that are going to make up the newest 'Land on the Disney Map.

Looking again at the posters surrounding the American Waterfront area of Tokyo DisneySea, we can see there is another advert for a show that could be quite exciting!

On the far left of the shot, the poster reads:

Dance Des Foilles

Broadway Music Theatre

We should head over there now - looks like the show is all the way from France!

Head Down The Scenic Route

Meandering through the Grizzly Peak area of Disney's California Adventure, be sure to take the scenic route.

Watch out for the deer crossing, though!

Looks like there is some Food and Lodging Ahead...

Good, I was getting tired!

It's almost summertime in Disney's California Adventure, which mean's it's almost time for the Mad T Party!

If you head down to DCA you might be able to see some previews of this before the evening entertainment starts June 15th 2012.

Enjoying a Softer Moment

It's a Sunday, sit back, relax and enjoy a moment at Disneyland Paris...

It's almost like we are in a Monet Painting!

Sweet as Candy

Gosh, if there is something this Princess loves almost as much as Disney, it's sweets. Chocolate especially! But as it's known in America, Candy!

So let's pop into the Candy Shop on Main Street U.S.A., as it's been recently refurbished and it looks good enough to eat!

 I have a feeling we will be back in the Candy Store to have a look at some of the amazing details scattered throughout!

Although perhaps this section was selected especially for Princess Fee and the Royal Family?

Up To Adventure

The entrance to Adventureland in Disneyland Paris is one of the nicest looking 'Land entrances in Parc Disneyland.

The detail and tiling that has gone into the entrance really makes you feel like you are entering some of your very own Arabian Nights!

As you can see, looking up, there is a great amount of detail in the entrance-way.

Lights hanging in such a way that you feel like you are in Agrabah and the markets that keep this area hustling and bustling.

Fight the Lego!

Following on from yesterday's post, we have more shots from Lego at Downtown Disney, California. Whilst Aladdin and Jasmine are inside, Maleficent is causing some trouble outside!

Looks like Prince Philip is trying to fight her off!

But Belle and the Beast are also enjoying some time together.

Beautiful art pieces!
