The new Dream Suite is where the art gallery used to be. This space was always meant to be Walt Disney's family suite, but he passed before it came to be. 40 years later Walt's dreams are still coming true! ºoº

Opening Summer 2008 - Toy Story Mania!

As posted at Disneyland.com:

Beginning this summer, you can step right up and compete in an interactive "Toy Story" adventure like no other. It's Toy Story Mania!— a brand new attraction inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story” films.

You'll grab some 3-D glasses before boarding your ride vehicle and zipping off into a world of immersive, midway-style games. Highlights include the following:

  • Games are hosted by favorite characters including Woody, Buzz, Rex and Hamm!
  • Your spring-action shooter will launch darts at balloons, rings at aliens, eggs at barnyard targets and more!
  • Certain targets trigger surprise reactions and special effects.
  • You can compete for the high score.
  • It's never the same experience twice and is another great reason to visit during The Year of a Million Dreams!

Disney Dream Portrait Series

I can't express how much I love the Disney Dream Portrait Series by Annie Leibovitz. Three more images were added in October 2007.

Beautiful! I feel very fortunate we were able to see the Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life 1990-2005 exhibit at the San Diego Museum of Art last year. It included her personal and professional works. ºoº
