In Case You Missed It!

In Case You Missed It!

Today Planes: Fire and Rescue debuts in theaters.  Who’s ready to rejoin the fun of Dusty and crew?

This week we have a cornucopia of fun for you, including the monorail being evacuated, details about the upcoming Big Hero 6 movie, and more! Read on to find out what other goodies I found!

In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors

 

Bob Iger must be doing a good job according to his peers, because he has been named as the 2014 CEO of the Year. Congrats to Mr. Iger.

Forbes ran an intriguing article titled “The Secrets Behind Disney’s $2.2 Billion Theme Park Profits.” The beginning of the article looks more at the domestic parks, but then it morphs into a look of Disneyland Paris. Still, it’s a good read.

Wow…that hit national news. Crazy. If you missed it, the monorail had to be evacuated earlier this week at Walt Disney World, due to a power outage caused by weather.

If you are a fan of Broadway, read the top 5 reasons why Walt Disney World attraction should influence theatrical productions. I had never thought it it before, but the author really does bring up some good points of things that Disney is already doing that would take stage shows throughout the country to the next level.

It’s always fun coming across different ads and memorabilia from the past. Check out this fun ad from 1984 promoting Disneyland Hotel. Personally, I want to try The Top of the Park, but all the dining options sound delicious!

Information abut Disney’s upcoming theatrical release Big Hero 6 has been pretty darn scarce, however, this week, we got the opportunity to find out a bit more about the movie. The first features sneak peek interviews with the cast, while the second introduces us to the characters we’ll be meeting in this superhero flick. We also got to see the first full trailer for the movie. What are your thoughts about this follow up to Frozen?

We also got a peek at what the newest short from Pixar will be. Lava will follow a love story between to volcanoes, Uku and Lele. The short will debut before the release of the 2015 movie, Inside Out.

Remember a few years back (wow…2010?) when a new Haunted Mansion movie was announced, to be produced by Guillermo del Toro? Move ahead four years and it seemed as though the idea that this movie would ever get made would appear as though it would be wishful thinking; I mean we hadn’t heard anything about the movie. That is up until this week, because apparently it’s still being worked on. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see if it ever eventually hits theaters. (And gets the bad taste of the last Haunted Mansion movie out of my mouth…which was an awful movie.)

Speaking of The Haunted Mansion, it would appear that Disney is going to create a Haunted Mansion special, which will air on DisneyXD.

 If you are a fan of The Avengers, then you will NOT want to miss this first peek of Avengers: Age of Ultron from Entertainment Weekly. Looks awesome so far.

In Case We Missed It

 

What did we miss? Attach your idea to Firefighter Dusty Die Cast Plane (you can take him with you to the movies) and send them to blog@touringplans.com with the words “In Case You Missed It” in the subject line.
