Helping the Hungry

Earlier this month, members of VoluntEARS and the Disneyland Resort’s Design and Engineering teamed up to help fight hunger in a very unique way! Together they created a 10-foot Jack-Jack out for the 11th annual CANstruction Orange County competition.

The Incredible-ly large child of Helen and Bob Parr, was designed over a period of 6 months, took 8900 canned food items to create and 1 night to build.

As part of the efforts to raise money for the Orange County Food Bank, supporters can vote on their favorite creation for $1 per vote (all proceeds benefit the OC Food Bank). If you would like to donate click the link below:

Miguel comes to DCA!

Sometimes the simplest things are the ones that make the largest impact. That was certainly the case for California Adventures show ‘A Musical Celebration of Coco’. Last year we saw a marionette of Miguel pop-up at Disneyland Paris and we loved it! Although we didn’t get a chance to see it in person, the photos that we saw were enough to convince us that we needed that marionette here.

Miguel as now made his way to Southern California as part of the tribute show and it’s certainly an addition that we truly love! The simplicity of the puppet was the first thing that caught our eye. We’re very glad to see that practical effects were used and that the movement and realism of this character really bring that show to life. Take a look at the video below and let know what you think!

Incredible features

We’re probably in agreement with a majority of Disney/Pixar fans when we say that Jack-Jack stole the show in the Incredibles 2. During the film there was a scene where Edna Mode was gitty to have the opportunity to watch baby Jack-Jack. With the release of the Blu-ray upon us, we’ll finally get a glimpse into really happened the night that “E” babysat Jack-Jack. In his tweet marking the announcement, Brad Bird stated:

We have to admit that it’s super cool of Brad Bird to think a few steps ahead and give us all what we wanted before we even knew what that was!

Until next time! °o°
