Disney Ambassador Program Celebrates Rich Legacy with Incoming 2019-2020 Team

For more than 50 years, Disney Ambassadors have served as emissaries of goodwill for the Disney destinations they represent. Walt Disney, himself, created the program in 1965, naming the inaugural Disney Ambassador, Julie Reihm, who helped him by making appearances, giving speeches, escorting dignitaries and more.
 
Julie’s role set the standard for future decades of the Disney Ambassador program, which has grown to include a whole new world of Disney properties, including six resorts and Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa.

Allow us to introduce the 11 Disney Ambassadors you’ll soon meet at each of our locations, starting on January 1: 

Infographic - Global Disney Ambassador Team - 2019-2020    

Their immersive training lasts through the end of this year and consists of site tours, global business overviews, media training, and a deep-dive into Disney’s most engaging experiences. They’ll represent our approximately 150,000 cast members, crew members and Imagineers across the globe.

Earlier this week, the incoming class of Disney Ambassadors visited California as part of their training. They were even treated to a little movie magic with a tour of the Studio Lot and a meeting with Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. 
  
In keeping with Walt’s vision, the Disney Ambassador program keeps moving forward, which is why their responsibilities cover a colorful spectrum of magic and memory-making both in the parks and beyond. 
 
Please join us as we give a warm welcome to the 2019-2020 Disney Ambassadors!

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ – Can They Do That?

If you’ve seen the trailers for “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and laughed your way through sneak peeks at the film’s headline-grabbing Disney Princess sequence, you may have found yourself asking, “Can they do that?”

In part five of my six-part conversation with “Ralph Breaks the Internet” producer Clark Spencer (“Lilo & Stich,” “Bolt,” “Winnie the Pooh,” “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Zootopia”), the Oscar winner discusses the filmmakers’ approach to pushing the humor envelope while paying all due respect to Disney royalty.

Look for the final clip from our conversation here on the Disney Parks Blog on Nov. 21, when “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens in theaters.

Marvel Studios chief discusses Marvel’s Avengers coming to Disney streaming service

Kevin Feige at 2015 D23 Expo

In an interview with THR, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige briefly discussed Marvel’s Avengers-focused programming for the as-yet-unnamed direct-to-consumer streaming service from Disney. The plan appears to be to produce longer ‘campfire’ stories.

“But Paul [Greengrass] mentioned the streaming service, and I think that is something that we’re going to be adding content to, which is exciting. I love your analogy with the campfire, right? As many people as you can get around the campfire and tell stories. Campfires can be different: We are going to tell stories for the streaming service that we wouldn’t be able to tell in a theatrical experience—a longer-form narrative, that’s what comics are, it’s about as longform a narrative as exists. But also maintaining that theatrical experience, which is our bread and butter, and the lines around the block, if you’re lucky.”

When I think campfire stories, I think shaggy dog stories that weave around for a long time with no real purpose other than a final punchline. I hope that’s not what Feige meant.

I like the television medium for Marvel (and Star Wars) because the storytelling you can do over 10-20 hours of programming allows for more characters to develop and for fans to get to know them, their strengths and foibles, via more plots and stories than you can fit into a 2 hour movie. Think Game of Thrones vs Lord of the Rings.

Netflix recently canceled two of its Marvel shows (Iron Fist and Luke Cage) leaving plenty of room for more Marvel on various streaming services. With Marvel under its roof, Disney has the home field advantage, of course.

We’re already expecting a number of shows from Marvel on Disney’s Streaming Service, but the two closest to confirmation are:

  • Loki and Scarlet Witch
  • Bucky (aka Winter Soldier) and Falcon team-up series.

What do you think of those pairings? What other long-form storytelling from Marvel would you like to see on Disney’s upcoming streaming service?

Avatar picks unique names for four planned sequels

Avatar is a 20th Century Fox property, which means that it will soon be a Disney property. Lightstorm Entertainment and Fox already were collaborating with Disney as part of building a very real version of the movies as a totally immersive land at Walt Disney World.

There are at least four new Avatar films in the works. Lightstorm entertainment is filming multiple titles simultaneously to save costs. Now we’re learning the rumored titles for the next four Avatar movies. They’re pretty unique:

Avatar: The Way of Water
Avatar: The Seed Bearer
Avatar: The Tulkun Rider
Avatar: The Quest for Eywa

I think you can tell James Cameron is interested in telling some pretty unique stories from his world of Pandora. He’s spent years building up a mythology worthy of the box office numbers his initial Avatar film generated. Now he wants to tell the most interesting stories he can from that galaxy.

Cameron has, with the help of Disney’s Imagineers, already built some of that mythology into Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Hint Cameron has said the first sequel takes place largely in and around the ocean on Pandora.

Before Pandora – The World of Avatar opened, I think it was an open question if there were fans of Avatar like there were for Star Wars or Star Trek. Turns out there are plenty of them. They dress like Na’vi, learn to speak the language, collect memorabilia, and talk about what might be next for the franchise. In that way they’re very similar to Disney fans and will fit right in to the family.

We recently learned that a new logo for the Avatar movies will finally ditch the hated Papyrus font. Thanks for listening to your fans James!

Of the four new Avatar movies, The Way of Water is up first and will swim into theaters December 18, 2020.

Video: Magic Kingdom transforms almost overnight for the winter holidays

Walt Disney World’s holiday elves have been busy transforming the parks from one holiday to the other. The work is done largely by the Holiday Services department and a special team of set dressers and horticultural experts who flip the Magic Kingdom from Halloween to Holidays in pretty much just one night.

Watch this fun video as Disney offloads and hangs six trailers of decorations, including one 65-foot-tall Christmas Tree in less than seven hours.

Everything should be up and ready to go in time for the first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which kicks off this Thursday, November 8.

What do you think of this year’s holiday decor at the Magic Kingdom?

New Disney Video Series is dedicated to the company’s biggest fans

The Oh My Disney brand has released a trailer for a new online video series titled “Disney People” that will focus on Disney fans and how they came to their fandom. Some collect pins, some live in Disney themed homes, and others love to Disney Bound. The show plans to cover the gamut of fans.

Watch the trailer for the new series here:

“Real people, real stories. Disney People is a new series by Oh My Disney that highlights individuals and families who have transformed their Disney fandom into cultures, communities, and lifestyles,” says Disney in its description for the show. .

The first episode will debut November 12. Catch “Disney People” on the Oh My Disney YouTube channel or on Facebook Watch.
