‘The Incredibles: Heroes in Training’ to Begin at DCA Jan. 14, Memories Campaign on Jan. 21
While construction continues at Disney California Adventure, the park will be offering alternative entertainment to the ‘Pixar Play!’ parade which went on hiatus late last year. Using elements from the parade, parkgoers will have the opportunity instead to watch mini-shows. Initially titled ‘Pixar Pop-Ups,’ the Disneyland Resort has announced that the first mini-show will be titled ‘The Incredibles: Heroes in Training’ and will begin performances on January 14.
A week later, on January 21, the Disneyland park will begin its in-park celebration of the 2011 campaign, ‘Let the Memories Begin,’ by projecting Disney PhotoPass photos of the day’s guests on the ‘it’s a small world’ facade on a nightly basis in an entertainment offering titled ‘Magic, Memories and You.’

Tip of the week
Secrets of Fastpass
For this episode I used a different editing program then the one I used the the previous episodes. As a result the file size is almost 70% lower. I guess the new program compresses the MP3 better than the previous one. In my ear the quality still sounds pretty good. So you have the same great DisGeek taste with fewer calories! 🙂
We went to the Fiesta this past weekend. While going up to take a picture with Chip and Dale, my sister got stared down by Chip for standing in what we are guessing was his “spot”. And I agree that while the new menu at the “Haus” sounds interesting, a good old plain cheeseburger always hits the spot.
Loved the new show this week. Paul’s rant was absolutely hilarious – I too have always wondered why the Beast is still the Beast around the parks. Makes no sense! Keep up the good work guys, can’t wait until the next show.:)
Many thanks, Tommy! Thanks for listening! 😀

I’m with TommyFlix. That rant was classic! Keep em coming guys!
And Paul, when Ariel is watching Eric play his flute, she is *sitting* on a platform on the side of the ship. She’s not hanging off the side in a pull-up. Lol! ;D
Oohhhh! Well that explains a lot! Thanks for the info Lilly, and thanks for listening!
