With the opening of two heavily hyped Star Wars: Galaxys Edge lands, the Force continues to be strong at Mickeys theme parks on both coasts. The Dec. 5 debut of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disneys Hollywood Studios, part of Walt Disney World in Florida, rounded out the initial phase of the revolutionary land in grand style. It just may be the most sophisticated and arguably, the best attraction that Disneys merry band of Imagineers has yet developed. Rise is scheduled to open on Jan. 17 at the Disneyland version of Galaxys Edge in California.

But its not going to beall lightsabers and droids all the time. There are a ton of other new attractions, shows, updates, dining experiences, and more coming to Disneyland and, especially, Walt Disney World in 2020.

We are creating an idealistic Disney bubble so that guests can feel like they are in a magical place, says Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney parks, experiences, and products, about everything that is on the way.

Disney World:Rise of the Resistance puts riders in the middle of an epic 'Star Wars' battle

Who wouldnt want to be in a Mickey short cartoon? asks Kevin Rafferty, show writer and creative directorfor Walt Disney Imagineering. Thats his pitch for Mickey & Minnies Runaway Railway, which is scheduled to open March 4 at Disneys Hollywood Studios. Based on the wacky and highly stylized look and feel of the new Mickey Mouse series, the attraction the first ride-through experience to feature the beloved icon will incorporate the shorts offbeat humor and cadence while adhering to cartoon logic and physics, according to Rafferty.

With Goofy serving as the engineer of a train ride that (in typical theme park fashion) will go horribly wrong, passengers will be transported into Mickeys cartoon realm.

We have a winner, Chapek enthuses and predicts that Runaway Railway will be the sleeper hit of the year. A veteran Imagineer who has worked on many of the parks most popular attractions, Rafferty says that the Mickey ride is his favorite.

Youll also be able to catch an original cartoon in the style of the Disney Channel series at the new Mickey Shorts Theater. It will open in March at the Studios park as well.

Epcot is undergoing a major transformation that will introduce new lands, welcome new additions, and update components of Disney Worlds second theme park. Trackless vehicles will be featured in Remys Ratatouille Adventure, which is scheduled to open at the France pavilion in the summer. Like a similar attraction at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris, it will be based on Pixars Ratatouille and will take passengers through Gusteaus restaurant where they will experience culinary calamities from the perspective of Remy, a rat who aspires to be a gourmet chef.

The longstanding nighttime presentation, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, closed in 2019 and ceded the World Showcase Lagoon spotlight to Epcot Forever, a temporary show now playing that pays homage to the parks history. It will be replaced in 2020 by HarmonioUS, which Chapek touts as the largest-scale evening show that Disney has ever developed. Floating fountains and set pieces, a barrage of lights and lasers, and, of course, booming and blazing pyrotechnics will be choreographed to classic Disney songs as performed by a global array of musicians.

Curtains will rise on a trio of new Epcot films, all scheduled to debut on Jan. 17. You could put your warbling to the test and be the guest of Mrs. Potts herself, Angela Lansbury, as she coaches would-be chanteuses in Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, coming to the France pavilion.

Comic actors and frequent collaborators (as well as Canucks) Eugene Levy and Catherine OHara will co-host Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360, the new in-the-round movie opening at the Canada pavilion. In-theater effects will punctuate Awesome Planet, a film to be shown at The Land pavilion that will celebrate the awesome place we call home.

Since most of us cant resist the lure of our mobile phones, we may as well use them in pursuit of fun during our Disney World visits. Epcot will introduce the latest version of its high-tech scavenger hunt, Disneys Duck Tales World Showcase Adventure. Using the Play Disney Parks mobile app, you and your buddies could join Donald and the gang for an interactive mission throughout the park.

An out-of-this-world dining experience awaits at Space 220, coming to Epcot this winter. Visitors will board a space elevator that will whisk them 220 miles above the Earth to a space station where they will enjoy a meal while gazing at the cosmos through expansive windows. Heres hoping Tang-infused martinis will be on the menu.

Back on terra firma, the France pavilion will welcome the new restaurant, La Crperie de Paris, featuring both sweet and savory versions of the yummy pancakes. Regal Eagle Smokehouse, opening this winter at Epcots American Adventure, will be serving barbeque and craft beers with the Muppets' Sam the Eagle ashost. Over at Disneys Hollywood Studios, more smoked delicacies will be available at the new Roundup Rodeo BBQ table-service restaurant coming to the parks Toy Story Land.

Cirque du Soleils tent-like theater at Disney Springs, the shopping, dining, and entertainment district at Disney World, has been dark since the long-running show, La Nouba, closed at the end of 2017. But it will spring to life on April 17 when the avant-garde troupe opens Drawn to Life. Created in collaboration with Disney, the production will feature the studios animated movies and characters.

Disney parks love a parade, and beginning Feb. 28, the Magic Happens procession will step off at Disneyland. Mickey Mouse and his buddies will be at the helm, and other floats will feature characters from Disney and Pixar films such as Frozen, Sleeping Beauty, Moana, and Coco.

This parade celebrates the way magic affects both the characters in the stories and the guests who are watching, says Jordan Peterson, show director. Magic Happens is like a love letter to those special transformative moments.

Marvel, a key branch of the Disney empire, will establish more of a presence at the U.S. parks with the opening of the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park, part of Californias Disneyland Resort, in 2020.(Photo: Disney/Marvel)

Marvel, a key branch of the Disney empire, will establish more of a presence at the U.S. parks with the opening of the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park, part of Californias Disneyland Resort, in 2020.

The highlight of the new land will be an interactive attraction featuring Spider-Man. Recruits aboard Web-Slinger vehicles will help Spidey collect Spider-Bots, pesky surveillance devices developed by the nefarious Otto Octavius, otherwise known as Doctor Doc Ock Octopus.

The Web-Slinger technology is extraordinary, Chapek says, because it enables guests to act like Spider-Man. I think it is going to blow everyone away.

Youll also be able to order oversized and miniaturized food items at Pym Test Kitchen, courtesy of the Pym Particles developed by Ant-Man and The Wasp. Other over-muscled comic book heroes from Black Panther, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxyand Doctor Strange will take up residence at the Avengers Campus.

Walt Disney once said, Disneyland will never be completed ... as long as there is imagination left in the world. With everything that is planned for 2020, his ethos would seem to pervade all of the Disney parks. But Walts clarion call for expansion and renewal even applies to his parks original attractions.

Sixty-five years after it debuted, Snow Whites Scary Adventures is getting a makeover. When it reopens this year, the classic dark ride will be spiffed up inside and out and feature new technology such as laser projections and LED black lighting as well as new scenes such as the princess waking from her deep slumber.

From Kyler Murray to Patrick Peterson: Five final 2019 thoughts and a look ahead to 2020 – The Athletic

Posted: at 10:43 am


without comments

The Cardinals conducted their customary day-after-the-season proceedings Monday. Coach Kliff Kingsbury held a news conference. Players cleared out their lockers. Backup quarterback Brett Hundley was off to travel the world, hopeful to dive in Australias Great Barrier Reef.

OK, unless youre Larry Fitzgerald, that last one isnt quite so routine.

Anyway, its time to put the season to bed. Here are five final thoughts on the 2019 Arizona Cardinals and what they mean for 2020.

Vance Josephs retention

Kingsburys announcement that Vance Joseph will return as defensive coordinator was no surprise. Kingsbury values stability, and firing Joseph would have meant a fourth coordinator in four years.

I never wavered in that, Kingsbury said. His approach, knowing what I know of him and watching him work, things I saw from the first day I was with him, I knew I wanted him to be here.

Joseph also had the support of the...
