New Show Headed to the Disney Magic, Tiana Headed to the Parks

A couple of entertainment announcements:

Beginning late this year, the Disney Magic will unveil a new show for which we do not know too much about, including the title or even the synoposis. What we do know is it’s from the creators of Broadway’s [title of show], Hunter Bell and Jeff Bowen and involves a whole lot of villains including the newest villain from the Princess and the Frog, Dr. Facilier. He will be joined by Genie-esque emcee Hades, Pain/Panic, Jafar, Yzma, Evil/Wicked Queen, Captain Hook, Kronk, Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, Queen of Hearts and Ursula. Obviously villain-heavy, our only real indication of the tone of the show aside from Hades’s emceeing abilities are the good Dr. Facilier’s rendition of ‘Wind Beneath My Wings.’

GRAND CAYMAN, (April 21, 2009) – (PR) Disney Cruise Line honored the top prize winners of Disney’s EnvironmentalityTM Challenge (DEC) educational program today in an awards ceremony aboard the Disney Magic cruise ship. Taking place during a weeklong celebration of Earth Day, the event showcased local students’ contributions to promote conservation and protect the environment.

Students honored at the celebration were winners of the 2008-2009 DEC class project competition and are part of teachers Willean Hill and Tasha Miller’s Year 6 class from George Town Primary School on Grand Cayman.

Through their project titled “Environmental Stewardship Programme,” students created an informational brochure with environmental tips, translating it into several languages for distribution to fellow students, local residents and tourists visiting the Cayman Islands. They also organized a beach cleanup to rid the shoreline of debris and litter and created their own George Town Primary environmental blog to keep the community informed of their progress. Throughout the program, the group explored environmental issues by combining classroom subjects such as math, science and language arts in addition to educating and engaging the local community.
