Extra! Extra! Read All About It! DCA’s “News”est Hit!
You would think that getting news out in this day and age would be all digital – but leave it to the folks at Disney and Disney’s California Adventure to do things “old school” and create a hit!
The “Buena Vista Bugle” newspaper debuted this last summer at DCA as part of the theme parks makeover with the Buena Vista Street launch and provides information to guests the way it would have been delivered to them in the 1920s and 1930s…in good old-fashioned print. In addition to show times and park information, the 4-page newspaper also articles written in the voice of the characters of Buena Vista Street. The newspaper, now in its third edition has also featured fun Disney news like the wedding engagement of Ariel and Eric, a lightning strike at the Hollywood Tower Hotel and the opening of the Carthay Circle Theater!
It’s not 100% “old school”…there is one hi tech addition – a QR Code to download DCA’s official twitter account is featured at the bottom corner of the paper.
Want to get your hands on one but not going to be in the California Area anytime soon? Check out eBay…there are a bunch of listings for them!
