Snow White Premiere

On 21st December 1937 saw the premiere of Disney's first feature-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Carthay Circle Theatre, located at 6316 San Vicente Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. The film features the voices of Adriana Caselotti (as Snow White) and Harry Stockwell (as the Prince). 


It was attended by the elite of Hollywood such stars as Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, Judy Garland, Carole Lombard and Marlene Dietrich.

Then, Michelle is joined by the lovely Terri Hardin with some fabulous Christmas tales from her busy life. 


Terri Hardin is a puppeteer, artist, and former Disney imagineer.  Terri was hired by Disney in 1987 and helped design Big Thunder Mountain and La Taniere du Dragon at Disneyland Paris as well as contributing to Splash Mountain and Muppet Vision 3D. She creates some gorgeous Disney sculptures and has some amazing stories to tell.

Candleight Processional
Terri makes a point of seeing the Candlelight Processional at Disneyland each year. This is a special event that only takes place over one weekend in December and ever since finding out about the Disney choir Terri has made this one of her traditions. Listen in to find out more.

Disney Dream Girls 239 Disney Movie Magic

Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 239 for Sunday 9th December 2018.  If you want to listen, whilst reading these notes, just click the player below or alternatively find us in iTunes, Libsyn, on Stitcher Radio or via any good podcast catching app.


On this weeks show, Michelle is joined by Kat and Lewis to talk through a range of Disney topics and one of them is Ralph Breaks the Internet (pretty much spoiler free).


A113
On the show, Lewis revealed he hadn't heard of what A113. So we thought we would share what this is and suggest some other Easter eggs from the film.

So A113 is an inside joke, an Easter egg created by alumni of the California Institute of the Arts, referring to the classroom used by graphic design and character animation students including Disney and Pixar's  John Lasseter, Tim Burton and Brad Bird. In Ralph Breaks the Internet look out for A113 when Vanellope runs past a room on her way to meet the princesses in the Oh My Disney section of the film.

Now you know about A113 you need to be on the look out for it as it has appeared in every Pixar movie as well as lots of other Disney films, video games and various TV shows and animations.

25 Days of Christmas Show on Disney Now App

Jayne discusses the sneak peak of the new Lightning McQueen Racing Academy being show on 'Disney Parks Presents a 25 Days of Christmas Holiday Party' TV special. The attraction opens in Spring 2019 and will be located in Sunset Showcase at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The attraction will immerse guests in the world of Cars but is this just going to be a fancy meet 'n' greet??

New Desserts at Jolly Holiday Bakery
Over in Disneyland you can spend around $13.99 for two enhanced desserts that are themed around the Mary Poppins Return movie.

The first option is a chocolate cake with a crème center, finished with ganache, chocolate flakes, fondant flower, and a maraschino cherry, served with a souvenir Mary Poppins Spoon.

The second option is a dollar less and is a good old trifle! Inside the plastic cylinder you will find layers of pound cake, mixed berries, raspberry jam, pastry cream, and vanilla bean Chantilly cream, finished with Chocolate Flakes, served with a Souvenir Mary Poppins Spoon.

Gingerbread Houses - Question from Patricia Revie
On the show we answer this question - What attraction would you ask the catering team to create and why? How could you make money from this? This was a great question and I hope you liked the answers that we gave you.

Attraction Uplevelling - Question from Andrea Williams
We were then asked to answer - Choose an attraction to up-level and in doing so consider extra ways of generating extra revenue? Well we had lots of fun with this one!

Touring The World of Disney
Our final listeners question involved tour creation - What tour would you create and what would it involve? So we decided upon a few ideas.

We would love to hear your thoughts on these questions.

Christmas Gifts
We decided to get a little silly and look at the Disney Store website and challenge each other to guess prices and include a gift list for items you may want to buy the special Disney fan in your life.Michelle was very keen on the Muppet babies plush but also the heart shaped Mickey diamond necklaces... however she knows which she is more likely to get!
