The Palm course is currently undergoing its regular aeration process and is also getting re-imagined bunkers and improved drainage capabilities. It’ll re-open June 18.

While we are creating the Mickey-shaped bunkers, we are also going to enhance all of the bunkers at the Lake Buena Vista course, including adding new powdery white sand. At Oak Trail, the greens are being restored to their original size and totally resurfaced utilizing paspalum grass for the first time ever on a Disney putting green.

The new developments for those two courses begin June 18 at Lake Buena Vista and June 25 at Oak Trail. Both courses will be finished by mid-August.

Is anyone good with math?

intercot.com - Tue, 2018-06-12 04:44
I am trying to help my DS with his math homework. We are stuck on one question. I am wondering if anyone would be willing to explain how to obtain the answer to us.

"You are designing a rectangular enclosure with 8 rectangular sections separated by parallel walls. If you have 2900 feet of fencing, what is the maximum area that can be enclosed?"

But it has always been that way!!!

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-06-11 16:42
Another thread got me thinking about how many people assume something has been that way at Disney since the beginning, simply because that was how it was the first time they went to Disney. So I thought it would be fun, for all of us to share some of the things we experienced at Disney that no longer exist (or have changed significantly). So below is my list

1. A thru E tickets - Anyone else remember not having the ticket you needed to go on something you wanted to?
2. The Swan Boats
3. The unlimited attraction ticket (or whatever it's official name was) - this was available in the last year or so of the A thru E tickets and allowed you to ride everything as many times as you wanted to.
4. Gun Fights in Frontierland - I remember watching the Sheriff and his deputies trying to capture train robbers at the train station, which used to be where Splash Mountain is now.
5. Diamond Horseshoe review - Anyone else remember when this used to be a show?
6. 20,000 Leagues under the Sea - Only "E" ticket attraction in MK to close.
7. Mission to Mars - This was a tame (by modern standards) trip to Mars. I don;t remember to much of the show, other than the albatross landing and setting of the crash alarm.
8. Journey into Imagination - It is really sad that they closed this one.
9. Journey into Your Imagination - So glad they closed this one.
10. Mike Fink's Keel Boats // Davy Crockett Canoes - I really miss all the boats that used to go around Tom Sawyers Island.

Ok, think I will stop here. What are some of the things that you got to experience that no longer exist? Don't feel restricted to just list things in the parks.

‘Paint the Night’ Parade at Disney California Adventure Park Gets Even More Super this June with a New Float Inspired by ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Incredibles 2’

disneylandnews.com/ - Mon, 2018-06-11 16:09

ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 11, 2018) – The fan-favorite “Paint the Night” parade at Disney California Adventure Park gets even more super this June with the addition of a new float inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2.” The epic Parr family and their pal Frozone make their first appearance in this electrifying parade, bringing all of the fun and excitement of “The Incredibles” to life with high-tech, pop-art effects inspired by the mid-century modern style of the films.

Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible and Frozone showcase their super skills as they take on their latest threat, The Underminer. Mr. and Mrs. Incredibles’ teen daughter Violet, along with their sons Dash and Jack-Jack, also showcase their unique powers in surprising new ways, as shown through dynamic and innovative visual technology. Like other elements in this spectacular parade, the new float comes to life through a series of dazzling LED lights, new music elements and more.

The Incredibles float joins “Paint the Night” on June 23, just in time to celebrate the opening of the new film, “Incredibles 2,” in theaters June 15, and the opening of the newly reimagined land of Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure on June 23.

“Paint the Night” recently returned to the Disneyland Resort for Pixar Fest, the limited-time celebration of friendship and beyond, running now through Sept. 3, 2018. “Paint the Night” parade is currently making its way through Disney California Adventure Park with more than 1 million brilliant lights, high-energy music and cutting edge special effects featuring many beloved Disney and Pixar pals.

Fun Facts

  • The dynamic and colorful new float connects both “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2,” picking up where the first film left off and portraying the scene that shows the Parr family banding together against the supervillain known as “The Underminer.”
  • Violet Parr uses her super powers to surround herself with a “force field.” It comes to life through a custom-built persistence-of-vision (POV) globe – the first and largest ever to be installed on a Disney parade float.
  • Incredible and Mrs. Incredible, along with their pal Frozone, light up the night in new super suits. The suits were installed and wired by hand and are fully programmable to be in sync with the music and the float lighting.
  • The super suits, designed by eccentric fashion designer Edna Mode, are illuminated with nearly 100 sheets of flexible, miniature LEDs. This is the first time these light-up suits are being worn by any Disney or Pixar character.
  • The chest logos on the Incredibles’ glowing super suits are made up of 60 individually programmable LEDs.

By the Numbers

  • The Incredibles float is 11 feet wide, 18 feet tall, and 30 feet long.
  • The 13 buildings on the float are created with 123 individual LED panels – only two of which are exactly the same size and shape.
  • Frozone stands nearly 12 feet off the ground on his very own ice trail.
  • Dash’s super-human speed is captured through an innovative system of 64 individually lit frames, flashing as he races in circles around the float.
  • Guests need to keep an eye out for Jack-Jack, as he uses several of his super powers to pop in and out of four different places on the float.
  • The “art wall” around the rear of the float uses 150 fixtures, all exactly nine inches apart, to create the “sine wave” curve effect.
  • The penthouse floor of one of the buildings has 112 individual windows, each with its own miniature LED light source.
  • Nearly 200 individually programmable lights are embedded in the buildings, The Underminer’s drill and Frozone’s ice trail. Custom red lights act as miniature aircraft warning lights on several of the rooftops.
