Disney Parks to Kick Off a ‘Monstrous Summer’ With 24 Hours of Magic on Both Coasts
From: Disneyland News
ANAHEIM, Calif. and LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (April 25, 2013) – Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort will kick off a Monstrous Summer by keeping three theme parks open for 24 hours nonstop on Memorial Day Weekend, the traditional start of the family travel season.
LA Daily News reporter Linda Fields Gold gushed over Disney’s gourmet Carthay Circle restaurant, at California Adventures, in a recent article that was published on April 20, 2013. But I don’t think she looked them up on the Orange County Health Agency’s Restaurant Inspection website.
Fields Gold reported that “The creative talent behind Carthay Circle is Andrew Sutton, executive chef of the Napa Rose. While the Napa Rose is true to Northern California Wine Country taste, Sutton said he wanted Carthay Circle to pick up the “warm flavors and brighter heat” of Southern California. He has worked the past few years with chef de cuisine Gloria Tae, who describes her style as “California Rustic with Asian accents.” They concentrate on using locally grown, locally raised ingredients and sustainable seafood.”
She then went on to describe their dishes, which to be honest sounded great. But it looks like she didn’t know about the Orange County Health Care Agency’s inspection of Carthay Circle, on April 17, 2013. Here is what they found: Continue reading

But instead of working on Disneyland next, TDA is now seriously considering an additional E Ticket thrill ride and new themed placemaking for DCA in the next few years. Taking a concept originally cooked up a few years ago for Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida, there’s now a very serious proposal to tear out the MuppetVision and Stage 17 buildings in the back of DCA’s HollywoodLand area and build a Monsters Inc. mini-land there.
