Luxo Jr. entertains guests on the quarter of the hour all day (12:00, 12:15, 12:45 1:00 etc) with a three minute routine (photos above plus see full video below). We are told he does two different performances, “Medley” during the day and “Conductor” after dark featuring fiber-optic lights in the trees and along the Toy Story Mania show building.

Buy It Now – Fathers Day Combo Packs: Disneyland and Walt Disney World Editions

Hi everyone –

Fathers Day is quickly approaching and if your dad is a Disney fan (like mine is) we are now offering two special combo packs (Disneyland and Walt Disney World editions)!

My father, Walter Lange first brought me to Walt Disney World during it’s opening year of 1971 with my family and got me hooked on all things Disney. He used to record our Disney vacations on audio tape and later progressed to 8mm home movies. I guess I took to the recording of the parks by watching him and enjoying the results. Happy Fathers Day Dad and thanks for all the special vacations and everything you have done for me!
