Mousetalgia Episode 373: Disneyland holidays; Good Dino; Becky Cline on Walt’s office
This week Mousetalgia reports from Disneyland’s Candlelight weekend and brings you a holiday report from both the resort and D23’s “Light Up The Season” holiday event on the Walt Disney Studios lot. At the D23 event, guests celebrated the season as they met Sorcerer Mickey, played carnival games, ate in the commissary and watched holiday shorts in the studio theater. Then, we discuss Candlelight weekend at the park, and Kristen talks about the Club 33 Candlelight event – the delectable menu, the special viewing of the ceremony, and the special touches that only Club 33 can provide – then we compare that with a viewing of Candlelight from the side of Main Street, and discuss the crowd’s response to this cherished holiday tradition. Next, we speak with Ryan Teeple, the voice of “Young Buck” in Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, and learn about this 10-year-old’s unique opportunity to lend his personality to a Pixar character. Finally, we’re joined by Becky Cline, director of the Walt Disney Archives, to talk about the newly-renovated office suite that used to be occupied by Walt Disney himself on the studio lot. Plus – Carthay Circle, World of Color – Winter Dreams, Viva Navidad, and more.
