If New Yorkers felt a little safer today, it wasn’t without good reason. Atop one of the many buildings encasing popular Union Square stood Tonto with his kimosabe, the Lone Ranger. The life-size likenesses of The Lone Ranger stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer on horseback were part of a nationwide contest from Delta Vacations for a vacation to New Mexico. Moviegoers are encouraged to tweet or instagram photos of the statues along with the hashtag #LRRideForJustice for a bonus entry to the sweepstakes. Currently the statues are in New York City, visible from Union Square north, but they will be appearing at other locations nationally including Atlanta, GA, Orlando, FL, Miami, FL, St. Louis, MO, New Orleans, LA, Denver, CO, Salt Lake City, UT, San Francisco, CA, Burbank, CA and Hollywood, CA. A map is available at the official Ride for Justice micro-site as well as clues tweeted by the official @LoneRanger Twitter account.

Viewers of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, which recently aired on ABC, may have caught notice that co-host Maria Menounos mentioned she would be making a special Disney Parks announcement during ABC’s broadcast of ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest’ this upcoming Monday evening.
A similar announcement was made last year regarding the ‘One More Disney Day’ campaign in which the Disney Parks on both coasts honored the leap year by remaining open all night long for the parks fans that managed to brave it. That announcement, however, was a poorly guarded secret and the campaign had been known about in some form or another for months prior to the actual announcement (we reported on it as early as August of 2012).
