New Clip from ‘Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue’ — Fairy Journal

Apparently what we know of fairy lore stems from Lizzy’s time with Tinker Bell as we see in this new clip from the upcoming release Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. After finding some comfort in Lizzy’s doll house, Tink helps Lizzy answer the ages-old question of where fairies come from. Despite that Lizzy is unable to understand Tink when she speaks, the two find a way to communicate and help Lizzy get started on her very own fairy journal.

A few changes to the Walt Disney World refurbishment schedule:

First, the official list from Disney that once listed the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure removed it a few days ago and there are no signs of it coming back, so I removed it from the list here.

Second, we have two additional, unverified additions: Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in the Downtown Disney Marketplace to be closed from January 18 through March 6 and the Sunshine Tree Terrace quick service location in the Magic Kingdom, from January 17 through February 12.

Led by Donald Duck, a host of Disney and Disney-Pixar characters welcomed Princess Tiana after her horse-drawn carriage ride to Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom (Garth Vaughan/Disney, photographerLAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Starting Oct. 26, Walt Disney World guests will be treated to first-ever appearances by Princess Tiana, star of the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures animated feature film “The Princess and the Frog.”

Besides meet-and-greets with guests, Princess Tiana, Prince Naveen and other characters from the motion picture will star in “Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee!,” a rousing, colorful procession with a jazz-filled Mardi Gras theme.  The good times will roll as festively dressed, bead-tossing revelers lead Magic Kingdom guests to the Liberty Belle Riverboat dock.

The party moves onboard and the Liberty Belle paddlewheels her way along the river with singing and dancing to the sounds of a six-member jazz band.  Nearly two dozen Disney dancers join 30 randomly chosen park guests to be part of each show. Original songs composed by Randy Newman for the film liven the production, which will be performed three times daily.  Daytime pyrotechnics and whimsical puppetry round out the spirited, 15-minute production.

The 10-week experience at Walt Disney World Resort will run through Jan. 3, 2010.  “Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee!” also will dazzle guests at Disneyland Park in California, beginning Nov. 6.

A hilarious movie adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana, “The Princess and the Frog” will open in limited release in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 25, 2009, before expanding nationwide on Dec. 11, 2009.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to open Disneyland Annex

It’s hard to say who was most disappointed when Club Libby Lu announced its closure of all 98 locations, including the Downtown Disney Anaheim location: all of the adults who enjoyed spending money to cover their toddler in glitter and make-up or all of the adults who enjoyed complaining about it. While the now defunct Princess Fantasy Faire did its best to fill the greasy void, solid help is finally on the way with the debut of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique set to open mid-April. The boutique will be located in Fantasyland at the former location of Once Upon a Time… A Princess Shoppe.
