BDH #44 - Disneyland's "Haunted Mansion" Now Available

Bringing Disneyland Home Video Podcast

Happy Halloween! You're all in for a "Treat" with this episode. There won't be any "Tricks" when I tell you that one of the most requested attraction videos is finally here.

Well, I finally got up the ambition to tackle this legendary attraction. The Haunted Mansion is one of the most requested attractions in the emails I receive from viewers. I must have 8-10 complete ride through videos of this attraction but still it's extremely hard to find usable clips from such a dark show. Some of the footage in this episode is grainy and fuzzy but that is a choice I made to at least try to show some detail. Next to the Westfest 2007 video I did, this one took me longer than any other episode to gather media, capture video and edit. There is so much information written about HM that I thought I would never be able to pull together a short and informative narrative but I guess it turned out OK in the end. I hope you all enjoy the show!


BDH #43 - "Toy Story Midway Mania" Is Now Available

Bringing Disneyland Home Video Podcast

In this episode, we'll be taking a ride aboard the Disneyland Resort's newest attraction, Toy Story Midway Mania.

Walking up to the entrance, we are greeted by an unforgettable Audio-Animatronic Mr. Potato Head acting as the barker for this fun, action packed attraction. More time was spent programming Mr. Potato Head and he says more lines of dialogue than any other Audio-Animatronics figure ever created by Walt Disney Imagineering. Also, He is the first Audio-Animatronics figure that is able to remove a body part and re-attach it (be sure to watch his ear). Mr. Potato Head has new, highly expressive and animated eyes that can look directly at a particular guest in the queue when speaking to her or him and his mouth appears to form words and vowel sounds, both firsts for Walt Disney Imagineering.

New Thomas Kinkade Disney Paintings

From The Placerville Gallery, Inc. Newsletter, July 2008

We are proud to present to you the first in an epic 12 painting series entitled "Timeless Disney Moments Collections." On a conference call last week, Thom unveiled "Snow White Discovers the Cottage." The passion and excitement surrounding this series and his relationship with Disney was overwhelming and we all have a lot to look forward to over the next few years as Thom works his magic to bring to life some of the most memorable moments in Disney history. Snow White was the first feature length cartoon and Walt Disney was presented with several Academy Awards for his efforts. As a result, Thom felt that it was appropriate to launch this series with Snow White.

The detail and care taken in this painting is evident. Thom stated that he spent more time on this piece than any painting in recent history. Experimenting with fantasy-like techniques, he brings to life the whimsical nature of Snow White as she journeys through the forest and happens upon the cottage with squirrels, deer, rabbits and other animals by her side.

WDW The Full Report 3rd Edition

I wanted to let everyone know that the 3rd edition of Brian McDaniel's "WDW - The Full Report" is available for purchase. I had the opportunity to hang out with Brian and his lovely wife during my very first trip to WDW in December 2006. I couldn't have asked for better tour guides. And the cherry on top was the when Brian gave me a signed copy of his WDW Full Report 2nd Edition. I started reading it when I got home and my first thought was "This is no ordinary Disney Guide Book". Brian is very funny and I was a little surprised as I read through the book at how similar his views of touring the Disney Parks are to mine.
