  • Trip Report 4/4 - Regis & Kelly coming to DL

    Storybook Land Boats and Casey Jr. are down for overhaul. They're painting the walls on Storybook Land, so I expect they'll be there for a little while.

    The Opera House looks great with the new gilding.

    I overheard some Disney execs talking. They'll be draining the castle moat to put in some platforms, not sure for what. They will also be bringing Regis & Kelly to Disneyland. I believe it will be at the beginning of next month, but as I was eavesdropping, didn't get a firm date. They will be taking out some trees around the central hub and putting in two jumbotrons to either side of the castle as you face it. Sounds like Regis and Kelly will be broadcasting from in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

    Work continues on the Monsters Inc. facade in DCA. They were cutting some of the old facade so that it resembles a caricature of LA less and Monstropolis more.

    Anyway, those are some of the major things I noted this morning.

    Regis and Kelly! Talk about scraping from the "D" list for celebrities. I hate to see a tree get cut down for a video screen.

      The trees won't be gone permanently, they were specifically discussing that. The trees will be removed for the broadcast, then they will be returned.

        Regis & Kelly normally do that kind of stuff in end of April or May. Maybe they will be broadcasting for the big 5-5-5.

          I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was something for the Kickoff weekend, especially since their show is on ABC

            HAHA thats funny Regis and Kelly the D list of celebrities. HAHAHa um Regis and Kelly are not celebreties ina big way they are media access to the public. Have Regis and Kelly broadcast in front of the castle for a week and it will get millions of dollars loosened from that part of the public that just swallows up Regis and Kelly's talk in the morning. I say that is one slick move by the Resort in CALI' that is going to pack Disneyland like a sardine can for the summer.
            But DL has one problem with the crowds... its a turn off for a lot of people. I was there during after Easter spring break and the park was having a difficult time handling the crowds. It is no fun seeing fast pass sell out by two oclock and rides shutting down left and right for problems. Matt Ouimet and his team have a lot of obstacles still in there way from the Harris era. And unfortunately Harris had some good things going during her tenure that just is not up to par during Ouimets reign. Marketing and mercahndise was Harris stong point. Paint and rides is Ouimet strong point however Ouimet has lost a lot of good engineers becuase of Harris and Pressler, which is making a job that is tough already just a lot and I do mean a lot tougher becuse Ouimet has CAlosha breathing down his neck for previous managements mistakes. sorry I Digress

            The point is Ouimet made an intelligent marketing decision to (if the rumour is true) have Regis and Kelly do thier show from the Castle. And heck there are 50 years worth of trees there if you dont knock down a tree or two now and then you wont be able to see the beauty of the park. Oh I so wish you could see the Fantasyland skyway building it is remarkable behind all that shrubbery and trees and ODV. it is a jewel of a spot that no one sees anymore unless you do what I did. I .........

              Yeah, it is going to be annoying for visitors at the time, but it is millions in free publicity.

                You are absolutly correct. DLR does have a bit of a problem with crowds. I still dont understand the need for two jumbo-trons, as the hub and main street are 'relativly' small compared to that of other Disney parks. Also, the platforms puzzle me. When the suits were talking about the platforms, in what context where they talking? Of the Regis and Kelly deal or of the 50th celebration?

                  Maybe sparklers like use in fantasmic in the river will be used in fireworks show for say a fantasmic scene :P lol. you know the spining sparklers in fantasmic! They could use them in their for the new fireworks... Since the fireworks soundtrack consists of disneyland history etc., they could have a fantasmic scene!

                    Maybe they'll have people "on location" in the park that they'll show on the jumbo screens?

                    The R and K announcement doesn't surprise me. I think someone already said it, but that show has a long Disney history and broadcasts from a Disney resort once a year or so. (At least they did... I don't watch much anymore!)
                    Good morning, son
                    In twenty years from now
                    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                    And I can tell you 'bout today
                    And how I picked you up and everything changed
                    It was pain
                    Sunny days and rain
                    I knew you'd feel the same things...

                      D-list celebritieS? Are you kidding?
                      GIve me a break.

                      Kelly Ripa stars in a Sitcom.
                      Regis Has a long career on TV and had a hit show for a few years (millionaire) not to mention the fact that they are on 5 days a week during the day time.
                      They are at least B-list. If you want D-list turn on any show on VH1.

                      THey did the same thing for TOwer Of terror. It will definately create crowd control issues but its not like people are going to leave cause they can't walk around the castle.

                          Went to a party the other night
                          All the ladies were treating me right
                          Moving my feet to the disco beat
                          How in the world could I keep my seat
                          All of a sudden I began to change
                          I was on the dance floor acting strange
                          Flapping my arms I began to cluck
                          Look at me..I'm the disco duck
