With the actual attraction name yet to be announced/confirmed, the Oriental Land Company (OLC) today announced that it will be closing ‘Captain EO’ on June 30, 2014 to make way for a new attraction to debut at Tokyo Disneyland. The new attraction will be akin to ‘Stitch Encounter’ at Hong Kong Disneyland and ‘Stitch Live!’ at Walt Disney Studios Paris in that it will allow up to 160 guests to ‘communicate with Stitch, who is in outer space, in real time over the theater’s large screen. The entire family will enjoy the fun-filled conversations with the mischievous Stitch.’
It’s been a long time coming: after countless licensing deals with other properties (even A&E’s ‘Duck Dynasty’!), Joseph Enterprises has finally announced it is releasing two Disney-themed Chia Pet products just in time for the holidays.
First up is the Chia Pet Mickey Mouse which features a reusable handmade pottery planter (includes enough Chia seed for three plantings), complete with mouse ears. Also new is the Chia Flower Garden featuring Winnie the Pooh, which includes a reusable terra cotta planter and three premium paperwhites bulbs.
