Mad Tea Party is inspired by the Mad Hatter’s party sequence in Walt Disney’s animated classic Alice in Wonderland. Featuring the same resplendent floral colors, wacky architectural flourishes and objects of disproportionate size as seen in the movie, this timeless attraction places you in the middle of all the kooky mayhem.  

Today, some incarnation of the attraction exists at every Disney park destination around the world.

I'm having some issues with the demi-ace spectrum in figuring out where I belong. I started identifying as demi-sexual/romantic but to be honest i'm confused as to the difference between the two (sexual vs romantic) the more I look into it. If you have any characteristics that you could define between them that would be a great help because I don't want to mislabel myself. I'm sorry if there was a similar question in the past as well and thanks for your help! Your blog is great :)

The original Jungle Cruise opened on July 17, 1955 at Disneyland Park. Based on Disney’s award-winning True-Life Adventure films, Jungle Cruise premiered with a more serious and educational tone. In the early 1960s, however, Walt Disney introduced more drama and lighthearted scenes and asked one of his most accomplished animators, Marc Davis, to sketch some humorous gags.

Over the years, as the Jungle Cruise landscape has grown, so has the cast of animals. These updates, along with the talented skippers, provide fun new surprises on every trip down the river.

The original Submarine Voyage debuted on June 14, 1959 and was one of the first “E” Ticket attractions. The attraction was loosely inspired by the 1958 voyage to the North Pole by the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, which coincidently was named after the fictional submarine in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The attraction enjoyed a 39-year run at Disneyland Park, setting sail for the last time on September 7, 1998. Then, in 2007, the attraction once again re-opened—as Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. The submarines received new life, complete with a host of fishy faces from the classic Disney•Pixar film Finding Nemo.

The Mark Twain is a working reproduction of the historic vessels that ferried people up and down the mighty Mississippi. An actual working steam engine converts the water from the Rivers of America into steam that in turn powers the large paddle that propels the boat.

Walt Disney named the Mark Twain after the pen name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens. One of America’s greatest writers and Walt’s personal hero, Clemens was a riverboat pilot as a young man. That experience inspired his pen name: “mark twain” is a riverboat term that means a vessel is at a safe depth.

Disney reveals Star Wars Land for Disneyland and Disney World

Today at the D23 Expo 2015, The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced that Star Wars-themed lands will be coming to Disneyland park in Anaheim, California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, allowing Star Wars fans to step into the stories from a galaxy far, far away.

Ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life in the two parks include creating Disney’s largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14 acres each, transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.

“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” said Iger. “Through each new attraction and new land we create, we push the boundaries of what is possible. And as you can imagine, with Star Wars, we are taking that to a whole new level, with a whole galaxy to explore.”

These authentic lands will have two signature attractions, including the ability to take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.
