After highly (and not-so-highly) publicized events in which at Walt Disney World’s ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ both a man and a child suffered finger lacerations/partial loss and even going back to an incident in 2005 where a child lost part of his thumb on Disneyland’s ‘Storybook Land Canal Boats,’ a patent application has been published that hopes to reduce — if not eliminate — such injuries. The unfortunate aspect, however, is that the original filing date for the application, titled ‘Dynamic Roll/Pitch Stabilizer for Use During Loading and Unloading of Small Passenger Boats’ is February 12, 2013 — long before the recent ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ incidents.

You can find the embedded clip below.
‘Toy Story OF TERROR!’ makes its in-home debut loaded with never-before-seen bonus features, including three Vintage Toy Commercials, which can be viewed as act breaks during the film or separately with Director Introductions. Additional all-new bonus features include Audio Commentary, Deleted Scenes with Editor Introductions and ‘Team of Specialists,’ in which director Angus MacLane goes deep behind the scenes to introduce the team of specialists required to make this fun-filled Toy Story adventure!
Over two years ago, we first talked about a ‘Story Telling’ patent application that would integrate with Disney Parks and Resorts’ MyMagic+ system and today we are getting our first hints of it becoming a reality. The official Disney Parks blog has shared news that Disney Photo Imaging’s PhotoPass system will now allow guests who have purchased the Memory Maker package to automatically receive video of their journey — or drop — on the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort via their linked MagicBand.
ABC has announced it will air an hour-long special titled ‘The Story of Frozen: Making an Animated Classic’ which will premiere on the ABC television network on September 2, 2014 at 8:00 pm ET/PT. The special promises to share the behind-the-scenes secrets in producing Frozen, the biggest animated film of all time. Viewers will get a rare look inside Walt Disney Animation Studios and unprecedented access to the creative team that brought Frozen to life. Throughout the one-hour special, the audience will hear from Frozen stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the directors, songwriters, producer and artists and chief creative officer John Lasseter — the team who dreamed of making a cherished Hans Christian Andersen story into a big screen animated musical. Viewers will take a journey to the beautiful Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the look of Arendelle — the fictional kingdom — and see images and footage from the research trips to Norway, Quebec and points beyond that helped create the film’s unforgettable look and feel.
