LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The legacy of nail-biter finishes at Walt Disney World Resort added another chapter Sunday (Nov. 15) when Canada’s Stephen Ames parred the second hole of a playoff with George McNeill and Justin Leonard to win the 2009 Children’s Miracle Network Classic, the final event of the PGA TOUR season. It marked the 21st time in the last 28 years that the Classic was decided either by a playoff or a single stroke in regulation.
For Ames, it also marked a second nail-biter win at Disney in the last three years. In 2007, he hit out of a greenside bunker on No. 18 and one-putted for par to protect a one-stroke victory. This time, he needed five birdies on his final seven holes, capped by a birdie on the difficult No. 18, to catch McNeill and Leonard at 18-under-par 270 and become part of the playoff.
After Leonard’s potential tournament-winning birdie putt lipped out on the final hole, he three-putted the same hole for bogey at the start of the playoff and was eliminated. McNeill, who scrambled for a par on the first playoff hole, had his putt for par on the second playoff hole, the par 3 Magnolia No. 15, lip out. That sealed the victory for Ames, who had tapped in for par.

Title: LUMA (link)
Publisher: Walt Disney
Released: November 10, 2009
Pros: Quick, addictive play, good graphics and sound effects
Review: I confess when I first read LUMA’s description and saw the game shots, I thought I knew exactly how the game was going to go. At first glance, the concept seemed like this network type game I had played on a PDA long ago where ‘cables’ had to be rotated in 90 degree increments in order to connect various ‘nodes’ together to complete a ‘network.’ Although LUMA’s premise is similar, Disney Interactive (and its Enorbus subsidiary) have managed to turn the simple concept on its ears and produce a quick and highly addictive logic puzzle game.
ANAHEIM, Calif., Nov. 13 — When it comes to celebrating the magic and sparkle of the holidays with friends and loved ones, there’s no place like the Disneyland Resort where, now through Jan. 3, 2010, the holidays shine more brightly than ever.
This holiday season, guests will get to see and meet the newest Disney princess, Tiana, the star of a new show in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park. In addition, they will enjoy the return of special holiday versions of “it’s a small world” and Haunted Mansion, along with beautiful holiday decor, “A Christmas Fantasy” parade and a nightly snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A.
With so much to celebrate this season, the Disneyland Resort is offering expanded park hours and special savings on vacation packages on selected days. For a preview of the holiday entertainment, along with games, video and special offers, visit www.disneyland.com/holidays.
For the first time during the holidays, guests in Disneyland Park will see “Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee!” – inspired by the new Walt Disney Pictures animated film “The Princess and the Frog.” The rousing, colorful show has a jazz-filled holiday celebration vibe. It begins with a Mardi Gras-style cavalcade from New Orleans Square to the Mark Twain Riverboat in Frontierland. At the landing, Princess Tiana, Prince Naveen and other “Princess and the Frog” characters move onboard and, as the boat takes to the river, Tiana and company entertain guests on shore with a musical show that includes songs from the motion picture. The show runs through Jan. 3, 2010.
Themed entertainment, sparkling decorations and tasty treats add festive warmth to holiday fun at both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure park.
