I'd say that Disney offers much better value for its food than other park chains.

Although I've never been a Star Wars fan, I'm curious to see how this turns out.

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2014/03/do-you-want-to-draw-a-snowman-learn-how-at-disneys-hollywood-studios/

Earlier today, we shared a look into the Animation Academy at The Magic of Disney Animation. Recently, a few characters from Disney’s “Frozen” were added into the rotation of Disney characters our character artists teach guests how to draw every day.

With the popularity of “Frozen” – which happens to be released on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack tomorrow, March 18 – it’s no surprise that Olaf has become one of the most requested characters at the experience. During our filming, character artist Brian James Fichtner was gracious enough to give us a step-by-step lesson on how to draw this lovable snowman-come-to-life. Grab a pencil, paper and check out the full tutorial below!

Mark Hamill, aka Luke Skywalker, to Make Historic First Appearance at Star Wars Weekends

His most famous film character has destroyed the Death Star, received the Medal of Bravery following The Battle of Yavin and resisted a turn to the dark side, so what is he going to do next?

He’s going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!

No wait, wrong answer. He’s going to Disney World!For the first time in event history, Mark Hamill, the actor who brought Luke Skywalker to the silver screen in the Star Wars saga, will appear at Star Wars Weekends. Hamill will be one of the celebrity guests for Weekend IV, June 6-8, 2014. Fans can see him in the daily “Legends of the Force” Star Wars-themed motorcade and in a featured talk show.

Hamill’s appearances will most likely be a very popular gathering place for members of the Empire and the Rebellion, so be sure to arrive early.

More details about the event have been placed into the memory systems of an R2-unit and we’ll soon reveal them, but we wanted to share this Force-filled news with you today.

Maybe Disney starts to promote up to its new Star Wars movies were Hamill is likely doing a guest appearance or cameo. Read new Star Wars movie will start shooting this summer in the UK... :roll:

"Infamous" Luke Skywalker? I'm really getting tired of people misusing this word. "Infamous" essentially means notorious for doing bad things. Luke is a hero, not a villain.

Darth Vader can be "famous" and "infamous." Even Han Solo can be a bit "infamous"--but not Luke Skywalker. Disney should know better. ;)
