Whether through encouraging cast members to carpool or using French fry oil to fuel steam trains, the Disneyland Resort gives careful consideration to the environment. Conservation and the protection of the environment have been priorities since the park opened in 1955. The commitment started with Walt Disney, who once said, “Conservation isn’t just the business of a few people, it’s a matter that concerns all of us.” Today, the Resort continues to be focused on protecting the planet and developing innovative “green” ways of doing business.
Once Upon A Time…as every good story starts, the Disneyland Resort opened its doors to reveal a magical boutique where every little girl’s dream of becoming a Disney princess can come true.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique opened April 17, 2009, and in the past year, many magical moments have occurred in this enchanting location that’s nestled inside the corridors of Sleeping Beauty Castle. On a walk through Fantasyland one day, I had the chance to meet up with Store Operations Complex Manager, Stacey Gentz, who shared some of the stories from our cast and guests.
Every now and then, it’s so nice to hear our guests say that no matter the age, it made them feel like a princess, says one of Fairy Godmothers-in-Training, who has been on hand since the opening. It’s why we’re here, and it’s what we do, every day, we create magical memories for our guests during their stay.
Another cast member recalls, “Today when giving a Princess her big reveal, she was so happy that she shouted ‘I guess dreams really can come true.’”

Food. Energy. Entertainment.
These powerful words can both be descriptive of a good Disney vacation, as well as of the life of one of the busiest men in television today. From his roots as a Northern California restaurateur to exploding on the scene as the host of four currently-airing network television shows, Guy Fieri has taken his creativity and energy with food to a whole new level, which he will be sharing with visitors at Disney’s California Food and Wine Festival this weekend. During a production break in the studio, Guy was gracious enough to take time out to talk with me a little bit about his involvement with Disney. I’ve included some of the audio from our conversation at the end of this blog, so you can hear him discuss the festival, Disney experiences, as well as his special edition of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives called Guy’s Disney Holiday.
Guy’s connection to Disney started at a young age. He remembers his first visit to Disneyland was in the rain and how wonderful it was to just go from ride to ride with no waits in line. He also remembers using the E Tickets, when every ride required you to have a book of tickets – the E tickets being for the very best rides. He compared it to the Disneyland he knows today and is amazed by how long the lines are now! One of the things he appreciates is the fact that Disney is so unique no matter what time of year you go, that the family can experience so many special things, especially during the holidays.
