On Friday, January 25th 2013 at Disneyland’s Hyperion Theater in Anaheim, Ca, a group of Yamaha dealers will get to enjoy the man and the music of Elton John. The instrument company will be celebrating is 125th anniversary.
Elton says of the concert: “I’m constantly astonished by the inventive skills and versatility of the Yamaha team. Not only have they built all my touring pianos for the past 20 years, as well as the wonderful Million Dollar Piano that resides at Caesars Palace, but they’ve also now perfected the RemoteLivetechnology, which means that effectively, I can perform the concert live in Anaheim on January 25, live across the Internet and also live in venues worldwide–all at the same time! I am both proud and grateful to be a Yamaha artist and to enjoy the fruits of Yamaha’s amazing expertise.”
Using Yamaha’s groundbreaking technology, DisklavierTV, the technology will be reproducing the piano onstage with a 70-piece orchestra which will be streamed live over the Internet and simultaneously to remote Disklaviers in many countries around the world.

- Disneyland Has a New Way of Cracking Down on Ticket Abuse (chipandco.com)
In order to crack down on ticket abuse Disneyland is taking photos of guests as they enter the park on the first day of their 3 day park hopper tickets now. They are testing a new system that has Disneyland workers taking pictures of the park guest that enters the park on day one of a multi-day park pass. Then on day two and three the initial picture will pop up on the screen allowing the ticket agent to make sure the same person that used the ticket on day one is using it on day two and day three.
The system for ticket abuse is where a ticket broker will buy a 3 day “park hopper” ticket for $205 and then rent the ticket to three different individuals as one day tickets for $85 each day. This way the ticket broker makes $50 and the guests are saving $40 (one day tickets are $125). Disney has a policy that does not allow for sharing one ticket. Tickets are non transferable.
On Tuesday, the first day of the photo taking system there were many disgruntled guests claiming the photo taking delayed visitors getting into the parks up to 45 minutes.
“They delayed literally thousands of people in line to do this process,” said Bob Shoberg, a San Jose resident who visited Disneyland with his wife, daughters, in-laws and grandchildren.
Disneyland park spokesperson Suzi Brown, disagreed with the grumblings saying the photo process involved a “very small percentage of guests” and did not cause a significant delay.
