California 2008 Recap Part 2, The El Capitan Theater Experience in Hollywood

Sometimes a movie is just a movie. But other times, it can be a grand experience – which is exactly the point when visiting the majestic El Capitan Theater in Hollywood.

A group of us were invited to enjoy a showing of Wall-E a couple of weeks back. We’d all been to the theater previously – it’s hard for a Disney fan to resist when a new film opens here!

We planned to tour the theater prior to the show, but we were late and the tour was postponed until after the movie. We entered the auditorium to the sounds of the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ, which is quite a unique experience – so much more soothing than the normal barrage of commercials common to most theaters. Soon, the organist and the Wurlitzer sunk into the stage, and the live performance began

Disney’s Flight of Fantasy” is a stage show with a backdrop of favorite scenes from a wide variety of Disney/Pixar films. It is a visual treat! The performances include music, dancing, and a stage full of Disney characters.

This isn’t a review of the film, but I was very happy to get to see the wonderful Wall-E (another winner for Pixar) in such grandeur. Our VIP tickets afforded us reserved seating, popcorn and a beverage (the current price is $26.00 for the VIP experience). The standard seating tickets cost $16.00 for adults, and $14.00 for children and seniors.

We really enjoyed our tour of the El Capitan. Built in 1926, The Walt Disney Company and Pacific Theaters joined forces to restore the theater to it’s original glory. This included working with the National Park Service to preserve much of the detail of the original theater. It re-opened after a 2 year restoration in 1991 with the world premiere of Walt Disney Pictures’ “The Rocketeer”. The El Capitan has been showing Disney films (and of course Disney/Pixar movies) ever since. Inside the theater, there is a display of photos that follow the El Capitan from it’s heyday, through the restoration and includes photos of Disney premieres and celebrities.

During the Wall-E engagement (set to end on August 27th), the El Capitan also offers an interesting Nasa/JPL exhibit which includes replica’s of robotic vehicles such as the Pathfinder and Mars Phoenix Lander.

The El Capitan has seating for 1000 and a Dolby SR-D digital capable sound system.

Adjacent to the El Capitan Theater is Disney’s Soda Fountain and Studio Store. We didn’t try anything at the Soda Fountain, but the ice cream creations look wonderful!

If you are looking for a theatrical experience, and not just a movie – there is no substitute for seeing a Disney film at the El Capitan Theater.

California 2008 Recap Part 1, Disneyland's 53rd Birthday, Sleeping Beauty Castle Announcement, Disneyland Dream Suite Preview & Production Update

Hi everyone!

I had such an unforgettable trip to California, with more unique experiences than I could possibly fit into one article. Look for weekly updates on my trip, which will include my photos (and thoughts on) the NFFC convention, as well as Club 33, Disney’s Burbank Studios, El Capitan, the Disneyland Dream Suite, Comic Con, and so much more! Thank you to everyone who stopped by during the room-hopping and NFFC Show and Sale! I enjoyed meeting everyone and appreciate your support.

Disneyland’s 53rd Birthday – Tony Baxter Announcement:

One of the highlights of my California trip each year is to celebrate the birthday of Disneyland. It really is a special day for me, and I was lucky to get to spend it this year with friends and at a special NFFC event! Normally the NFFC leaves the day completely open – but NFFC members were treated to a special announcement in the Lincoln Theater by Tony Baxter. It wasn’t a surprise that the Sleeping Beauty walk-through was going to be reopened, it’s been apparent for quite some time.

However, we not only were there for the official announcement of the “reawakened” version of the walk-through, but shown original artwork and models as well. Presenters were: Andy Siditsky, Sr. Vice-president of Walt Disney Home Entertainment, Tony Baxter, Sr. Vice-president of Walt Disney Imagineering, Chris Merritt, Art Director for WDI, and John Gritz, Technical Director for WDI.

“It is fitting that we are announcing the return of a classic on the 53rd anniversary of Disneyland,” said Tony Baxter. With the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” approaching, Baxter said that the excitement around the movie created interest in the return of the Disneyland attraction.

The attraction is expected to open for the holiday season 2008, in tandem with Sleeping Beauty’s 50th Anniversary. Or, as Tony Baxter stated “Before the autumn leaves fall, Sleeping Beauty will again walk the halls”

Disneyland’s 53rd Birthday – Special Birthday Celebration:

As in previous years, the re-dedication ceremony was conducted by the Mayor of Main Street, flanked by Mickey Mouse and his friends.

During the ceremony Walt Disney’s original opening day speech was played. “To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here, age relives fond memories of the past… and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America… with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”

Disneyland Dream Suite – Preview:

While covering the NFFC convention, I was one of 30 lucky winners to win a tour of the Disneyland Dream Suite for myself and one guest from designer Kim Irvine. The Disneyland Dream Suite includes a living room, open-air patio, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Please check back soon for a full report with photos from this very special location!

Production Update:

I am currently working on the following titles:

* Disneyland Resort After Dark

* Disneyland: The Sixties (“Class of” Series featuring attractions from 1960-1970)

* Complete Main Street Electrical Parade (WDW, DL, DCA)

* Walt Disney World: Resort Classics

* Walt Disney World Class of 1971

JeffLangeDVD hits the road, NFFC Disneyana National Convention, Disneyland Resort, Comic-Con Convention and More

Hi everyone!

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since the last California NFFC Convention, but I’m packing my bags to attend next week! In addition to this special Disneyana event, I have a packed schedule which will include my first-ever Comic-Con convention.

NFFC National Convention:

The NFFC convention schedule has just been released and you can read it HERE. Legendary Imagineer Tony Baxter is a new addition to the schedule, as well as a very special appearance by Disney Legend Wally Boag. Wally will be joined by his son Laurence (who has inherited his fathers wonderful sense of comedic timing) as well as his friend Gene Sands. Gene is working with Wally on the book “ Wally Boag: The Crown Prince of Disneyland“.

I will be attending the entire convention and will have a table at the giant NFFC Disneyana Show and Sale. The sale date is Sunday, July 20th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Resort (12021 Harbor Blvd. Garden Grove, CA). If you are attending, please stop by and say hello (click HERE for a flyer with a $1.00 off coupon). I look forward to meeting everyone! I will also be opening my room at the convention hotel for room hopping on Saturday, July 19th. For more information about the NFFC please click HERE.

Disneyland’s 53rd Anniversary:

One of the highlights of my yearly trip is to celebrate Disneylands Birthday! As a diehard Disneyland enthusiast (and Disney in general!), I’m known to never leave the park before closing – and July 17th is no exception. My Disneyland birthday tradition is to join my friends for a full day in the park, riding all of the opening day attractions from 1955.

Comic-Con:

This year will be my first at the frenetic Comic-Con International convention! For years, friends have been trying to drag me away from Disneyland to attend this huge event. I’ll be covering the convention as part of JimHillMedia. Please check back here in late July for a full report on my experience!

JeffLangeDVD Production News:

Thank you to everyone who voted in the poll that my partner site Mousesteps ran! I was thrilled with the response, and you overwhelmingly favored a vintage WDW resort DVD series. I’ve been busy digitizing old footage, and getting it organized for editing. Look for a late summer/early fall release of my first vintage resort DVD! While in California, I will be recording video for upcoming DVD projects including a “Disneyland Resort, After Dark” title and the next in the “Disneyland, Class of” series! You can find other titles in that series in the JeffLangeDVD store.
