Rocket Jets was an attraction in Disneyland at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. This attraction opened in 1967 with the new Tomorrowland and closed in 1997 for the 1998 New Tomorrowland, it was the third spinning rocket attraction in Tomorrowland and stood three stories above the ground. When Tomorrowland was redone for 1998, the Rocket Jets were replaced by a new attraction based on Orbitron at the entrance to Discoveryland in Disneyland Park Paris; the Rocket Jets remained in their place above the former PeopleMover station as the Observatron, a sculpture, intended to spin and play music every fifteen minutes. There are only two tracks, from Space Mountain: De la Terre à la Lune and Le Visionarium, both of which are defunct Disneyland Paris attractions; the rockets were replaced by satellite dishes and the Saturn V rocket in the center was replaced by a laser-beam. However, the Observatron malfunctioned, as the machinery was built to operate more and to carry the rockets, rather than the satellite dishes they were replaced with.
It appeared to have mechanical issues, sometimes only playing music every 15 minutes, or not doing anything at all. In late 2006, the Observatron received much needed maintenance which allows the Observatron to now rotate every 15 minutes while playing its music as planned; as part of the maintenance, the old speakers were replaced with new ones and new speakers were added. Since this maintenance, the Observatron breaks down and operates on a daily basis as intended; the Saturn V rocket that the rockets were attached to was sold on eBay by Disney Auction in 2005. One remains on display, along with Skyway gondolas, in "Little Green Men Store Command" with a space ranger design. During Disneyland's 50th anniversary, one of the satellite dishes was replaced by a 50 Mickey Mouse head; the Rocket Jets appear in a scene from the Disney animated film Meet the Robinsons alongside another Disneyland attraction, Space Mountain. The area they are shown in is known as "Todayland"; the poster of the attraction appears as an easter egg in Monsters, Inc. on the kid bedroom during the scene when Mike Wazowski tries to make the kid laugh.
Animation Academy is an attraction at Disney California Adventure, Walt Disney Studios Park and Hong Kong Disneyland. The same attraction existed in Disney's Hollywood Studios and DisneyQuest, which closed in 2015. Tokyo Disneyland features an identical attraction, named Disney Drawing Class, within The Disney Gallery in World Bazaar; the attraction was closed permanently on September 30th, 2016, to make way for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. In Shanghai Disneyland's Marvel Universe, a similar attraction called Marvel Comic Academy is operating; this attraction features Marvel Comic's characters instead of Disney movies characters. The attraction opened together with DisneyQuest in 1998, it was recently added to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure. It can be found within Art of Disney Animation at Walt Disney Studios Park; the attraction opened at Hong Kong Disneyland on July 14, 2007 and is located adjacent to the Opera House in Main Street, U. S. A.. The attraction itself is a drawing session with a Disney animator who teaches guests to draw a Disney character.

Main Street, U.S.A.
Main Street, U. S. A. is the first "themed land" inside the main entrance of the many'Disneyland'-style parks operated or licensed by The Walt Disney Company around the world. Each Main Street, U. S. A. has a train station above the entrance. At Disneyland Park and Hong Kong Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty Castle stands in the distance beyond the end of the street. At the Magic Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland, Cinderella Castle stands at the end. At Disneyland Paris, Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant stands at the end. At Shanghai Disneyland Park, Enchanted Storybook Castle stands at the end; the area closest to the entrance just past the train station, is called Town Square. At the far end of main street, around and in front of the castle is called, The Hub or Central Plaza. Town Square is home to City Hall. Further along Main Street, the names painted in the windows on Main Street serve as credits for some of the many people and others, who contributed in some way to the creation of Disneyland, they appear as fictional businesses, they refer to a hobby or interest that the person honored.
Ub Iwerks's window, for example, refers to his prowess with cameras. For Disneyland's 50th anniversary, on July 17, 2005, a first-story window on each Main Street was unveiled with a dedication to all the cast members who had worked for Disney throughout the years; the streets are paved with resilient asphalt, a type of asphalt containing rubber, to prevent aching of feet. In July 2015, Disneyland expanded their Main Street U. S. A. with a Main Street Arcade in honour of their 60th anniversary. The Hub is a plaza area in front of the castle at the end of Main Street. Here, one will find the entrances to most of the lands at the Magic Kingdom style parks. From left to right, a person will find the entrances to: Adventureland. Inspired by Walt Disney's hometown of Marceline, Main Street, U. S. A. is designed to resemble the center of an idealized turn-of-the-20th-century American town. According to Harper Goff, who worked on Main Street, U. S. A. with Walt, he showed Walt some photos of his childhood home of Colorado.
Walt liked the look, so many of the features of the town were incorporated into Main Street, U. S. A. Another significant source of inspiration for the Main Street, U. S. A. concept came from the Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, which Walt Disney visited twice in the 1940s. Walt Disney said, "For those of us who remember the carefree time it recreates, Main Street will bring back happy memories. For younger visitors, it is an adventure in turning back the calendar to the days of their grandfather's youth." Above the firehouse in Town Square at Disneyland is Walt Disney's personal apartment furnished but off-limits to the public. A lamp is kept burning in the front window as a tribute to his memory, except at Christmas where a small tannenbaum replaces the lamp, it is decorated for both Halloween and Christmas. There is a 60-foot-tall Christmas tree during Christmas Time, there is a 16-foot-high Mickey Mouse jack-o-lantern on Halloween Time, with additional pumpkin ears. In the circular hub in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle, the bronze "Partners" statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse is surrounded by smaller bronzes of familiar Disney characters, such as Donald Duck and the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.
The Main Street Opera House in Town Square is the oldest building in Disneyland. It served as the park's lumber mill between 1955 and 1961; the cannons that are displayed in the center of the square were used by the French army during the 1800s, although they were never fired in battle. The gas lamps that line the street came from St. Louis and were bought for $.03 a pound. Partners, sculpted by Blaine Gibson, was added in 1993. During the Halloween season, pumpkin busts for each themed land in the park, except Main Street, are seen around "Partners." It is listed as a real street in the Orange County Thomas Guide.

Hong Kong Disneyland
Hong Kong Disneyland is a theme park located on reclaimed land in Penny's Bay, Lantau Island. It is located inside the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and it is owned and managed by Hong Kong International Theme Parks, it is the largest theme park in Hong Kong, followed by Ocean Park Hong Kong. Hong Kong Disneyland opened to visitors on Monday, 12 September 2005 at 13:00 HKT. Disney attempted to avoid problems of cultural backlash by incorporating Chinese culture and traditions when designing and building the resort, including adherence to the rules of feng shui. For instance, a bend was put in a walkway near the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort entrance so good qi energy would not flow into the West Philippine Sea; the park consists of seven themed areas: Main Street, U. S. A. Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, Toy Story Land; the theme park's cast members speak Cantonese and Mandarin. Guide maps are printed in simplified Chinese as well as English; the park has a daily capacity of 34,000 visitors — the lowest of all Disneyland parks.
The park attracted 5.2 million visitors below its target of 5.6 million. Visitor numbers fell 20% in the second year to 4 million, inciting criticisms from local legislators. However, the park attendance jumped by 8% in the third year, attracting a total of 4.5 million visitors in 2007. In 2009, the park attendance again increased by 2% to 4.8 million visitors. The attendance received 5.23 million guests in the 2009/2010 fiscal year. Since the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland, the theme park has hosted over 25 million guests. According to AECOM and TEA, Hong Kong Disneyland is the 13th most visited theme park in the world in 2013, with 7.4 million visitors. Majority-owned by the Hong Kong Government but managed by Disney, the park first turned an annual net profit of HK$109 million for the year ended 29 September 2012. However, it has operated at an increasing loss in 2015, 2016, 2017. Hong Kong Disneyland occupies 27.5 hectares and hosts 7.92 million to 8.92 million visitors annually. The park capacity will increase to handle up to 10 million visitors annually over a 15-year expansion period.
Penny's Bay was filled in to provide land for the construction of Hong Kong Disneyland. The bay was undeveloped except for the Cheoy Lee Shipyard, which opened in the 1960s. Chief Executive of Hong Kong Tung Chee Hwa was instrumental in introducing the Disneyland project to Hong Kong; when the SARS epidemic devastated the city's economy in 2003, it was hoped that the new Disneyland would help boost confidence in Hong Kong's tourism industry. Hong Kong Disneyland had one of the shortest construction periods of any Disneyland-style theme park. On 12 January 2003, more than 400 guests celebrated the groundbreaking of Hong Kong Disneyland after the finishing of land reclamation in Penny's Bay; the audience included Tung Chee Hwa. On 23 September 2004, a special "castle topping ceremony" was held in the park to commemorate the placing of the tallest turret on Sleeping Beauty Castle. Hong Kong Disneyland was opened to the public on 12 September 2005 by Chief Executive of Hong Kong Donald Tsang, Chief Executive Officer Michael Eisner, President Bob Iger.
Beijing offered its significant support by sending Zeng Qinghong as Vice President of the People's Republic of China. In order to help Hong Kong Disneyland grow, Beijing deliberately slowed down the development of Shanghai Disney Resort, first planned for the early 2000s; the park is divided into well-concealed backstage areas. On entering a land, a guest is immersed in a themed environment and is unable to see or hear any other realm; the idea behind this was to develop theatrical "stages" with seamless passages from one land to the next. The public areas occupy 27.4 hectares. When the park opened, it consisted of only four themed areas instead of the traditional five lands: Main Street, U. S. A. designed to resemble an early 20th-century Midwest town. On 30 June 2009, Donald Tsang, the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, announced that the expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland had been approved by the Executive Council; the park received three new themed lands — Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point and Toy Story Land — all located outside the Disneyland Railroad track, south of the current area.
Toy Story Land, based on the Disney·Pixar film series Toy Story. Opened 18 November 2011. Grizzly Gulch, reminiscing an abandoned mining town set amidst woods. Opened 14 July 2012. Mystic Point, heart of a dense, uncharted rain forest where supernatural events take place. Opened 17 May 2013. On 2 May 2017, the Executive Council approved another multi-year expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland, adding two new themed lands — Frozen Land and Marvel area — to the park. Frozen Land, themed to the popular Disney franchise Frozen. Opening in 2021. Marvel area, inviting guests to combat villains with Marvel superheroes. Opening in 2023. Throughout the park are'Hidden Mickeys', or representations of Mickey Mouse heads inserted subtly into the design of attractions and environmental decor. An elevated berm supports the 3 ft narrow gauge Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad that circumnavigates the park; the park has seven themed areas hosting various rides, shops, r
Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress
Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress is a rotating theater stage show attraction, located in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida just outside of Orlando, Florida. Created by both Walt Disney and WED Enterprises as the prime feature of the General Electric Pavilion for the 1964 New York World's Fair, the attraction was moved to Tomorrowland at Disneyland in Anaheim, California as Carousel of Progress, remaining there from 1967 until 1973, it was replaced in Disneyland by America Sings in 1974, reopened in its present home in the Walt Disney World Resort's Magic Kingdom in 1975. Steeped in both nostalgia and futurism, the attraction's premise is an exploration of the joys of living through the advent of electricity and other technological advances during the 20th century via a "typical" American family. To keep it up with the times, the attraction has been updated five times and has had two different theme songs, both written by the Sherman Brothers.
Various sources say Walt Disney himself proclaimed that the Carousel of Progress was his favorite attraction and that it should never cease operation. This can be somewhat supported by family and friends, who knew of his constant work on the attraction. Of all the attractions he presented at the 1964–1965 New York World's Fair, Disney seemed devoted to the Carousel of Progress; the Carousel of Progress holds the record as the longest-running stage show, with the most performances, in the history of American theater. It is one of the oldest attractions in the whole Walt Disney World Resort, it is the oldest attraction at Walt Disney World to have been touched by Walt Disney himself. Though the Carousel of Progress does not have long queue, there is a preshow video shown to guests while they wait in line; the video talks about the history and development of the attraction, includes clips of Walt explaining the attraction on his television show. The video lasts about four minutes, after which guests can enter the theater for the next show.
On the stage in the loading room is a large Carousel of Progress logo, framed by green curtains and illuminated by color-changing lights. The attraction’s narrator tells guests more history about the attraction, he focuses in on the fact that the attraction was Walt's idea, that he loved the show. After the introduction, the attraction's theme song, "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" begins playing as guests move on to the first scene: the scene that takes place during Valentine's Day at the beginning of the 20th century; as the scene opens, robins chirp in the background and the music fades. The father of the family, John, is sitting in a wooden rocking chair inside his home. On his right, his dog Rover is lying on the floor. John tells guests that it is "right around the turn of the century" and that it is Valentine’s Day, he claims that things could not get any better than they are at that time, before giving a list of the new inventions and technological achievements of the day. These include: buildings being up to 20 stories tall, moving pictures, 8,000 automobiles in the United States, such technology as gas lamps, cast-iron stoves, iceboxes, a reservoir which keeps 5 buckets of water warm with three buckets of coal, a water pump in the kitchen.
As John highlights the new pieces of technology, a spotlight shines on them and they begin to work. He comments that problems such as chopping wood, milk souring, having to get water from a well are all things of the past. After he is done showing off the new technology, he calls to his wife, ironing in the room to his left with their young daughter; the two discuss how Thomas Edison is working on an idea for "snap-on electric lights". Sarah says that will mean "no more kerosene and no more gas." She shows guests her new "wash-day marvel" and comments that now she can do the laundry in five hours, instead of two days. As John is explaining that Sarah now has time for other things, he is cut off by her response of “Like canning and cleaning the oven?" Sarah excuses herself, commenting that she needs to get the laundry off the line before it starts raining After it begins to rain, the family's son, begins to talk from the right room. He is scolded for using his father’s Stereoscope without permission.
James is watching Little Egypt dancing the "Hootchie-Cootchie". John comments that she is going to be the star of the upcoming World's Fair, that James better put the Stereoscope away before his mother finds it; the upcoming World's Fair is a reference to the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, which has led many to conclude that the scene guests are watching takes place on Valentine’s Day 1904; as John and James finish talking, John tells guests that they have "one of those new talking machines". The left stage shows the family’s grandmother, sleeping with the phonograph on; the radio plays "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow", the grandmother’s parrot exclaims "She keeps that thing going all day long!" John's attention is drawn to a room on the right, where his daughter Patricia is. Patricia is getting ready to go to a Valentine’s Day dance on the other side of town. John explains that she will be taking one of the new "horseless trolleys", before telling her that she better be home by 9 o'clock.
He tells guests that he is going to take one of the said trolleys downtown to have a root beer. After he is finished, he begins singing "There's A Great Big Beauti
Shanghai Disneyland Park
Shanghai Disneyland Park is a theme park located in Pudong, China, part of the Shanghai Disney Resort. The park is operated by Disney Parks and Products and Shanghai Shendi Group, through a joint venture between The Walt Disney Company and Shendi. Construction began on April 8, 2011; the park opened on June 16, 2016. The park operated in its first half-year with a visitor attendance of 5.60 million guests. The park covers an area of 3.9 square kilometres, costing 24.5 billion RMB, including an area of 1.16 square kilometres. In addition, the Shanghai Disneyland Resort has a total of 7 square kilometres, except for the first phase of the project, 3.9 square kilometres, there are two more areas for expansion in the future. Walt Disney Company and Shanghai ShenDi Group jointly invest in the Shanghai Disneyland Resort project; as part of the agreement, two owners will be set up, including Shendi holding 57% and Disney holding the remaining 43%. The park has seven themed areas: Mickey Avenue, Gardens of Imagination, Treasure Cove, Adventure Isle and Toy Story Land.
On January 22, 2019, Disney Parks announced an eighth themed land based on Disney’s Zootopia would be coming to the park. Construction is set to begin sometime in 2019; the Chinese government approved the resort on November 4, 2009. The Walt Disney Company announced on November 5, 2010 that it had signed an agreement with Shanghai Shendi Group to build the resort and park in Shanghai, with a planned opening in 2015. On April 7, 2011, groundbreaking began at the Shanghai Disneyland Resort site. On June 29th, 2013, construction on the Enchanted Storybook Castle began. Major construction work started in April 2011, targeting a 2016 spring opening; the resort is planned to cover an area of 4 km2 and it is expected to cost CN¥ 25,000,000,000. The project is financed by several large Chinese state-owned enterprises in Shanghai forming a joint venture with the Walt Disney Company; the Oriental Land Company has not confirmed any connection to this venture with Disney on the Shanghai Disneyland project.
"The first-phase of the project will be to the South of Huanglou Area, an area in Chuansha Town, the southeast suburbs of Shanghai's Pudong area. DeSimone Consulting Engineers were the structural engineers behind the construction work. On March 8, 2013, the company announced that the park would open in late 2015. On February 2, 2015, the opening date was pushed back to early 2016. On January 12, 2016, the park's opening date was announced as June 16, 2016. According to some reports, due to construction delays and quality control problems; the final opening date was June 16, 2016. The cost was estimated at 24.5 billion yuan for the theme park and an additional 4.5 billion yuan. That rose to around USD $5.5 billion before delays, due to more attractions opening to the public on the first day, which added USD $800 million to the cost. The added cost does not take into account lost revenue from the lost admissions fees. In addition to the attractions and two hotels, a high-speed rail system is being built to get visitors to and from the site.
Disney owns 43% of the property, the state-controlled Shanghai Shendi Group owns the remaining 57%. On May 7, 2016, Shanghai Disneyland Park had started soft openings. Disney aired the live broadcast of the grand opening show on its Facebook and the Disney TV stations on the night of June 15, 2016. Bob Iger and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company was joined by nearly 3,000 distinguished guests and celebrities for a showcase of choreography, acrobatics and technology in grand scale, with dazzling lights, Disney music, special effects, fireworks; the show featured world-renowned pianist Lang Lang, who performed a custom arrangement of the musical sensation “Let It Go” and China’s television and movie superstar Sun Li who took center stage. The historic event included the debut of an original song, “Ignite the Dreamer Within,” written for the grand opening of Shanghai Disneyland. Acclaimed composer and conductor Tan Dun known for his stirring scores for the films “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “Hero,” led the Shanghai Symphony with an original composition of the new song.
Tickets for the park went on sale on March 2016, with a two-tiered pricing scheme. On most days, day adult tickets will be CN¥ 370, while child and elderly one day tickets will cost CN¥ 280 20% cheaper than Hong Kong Disneyland. During busier periods, including the first two weeks of the park's operation, adult day tickets will cost CN¥ 499, while child and elderly tickets will cost CN¥ 375; the park will be the first Disney park to feature tiered pricing. According to the International Business Times, the equivalent of park ticket pricing will cost about US$75 for adults and US$60 for children on holidays and weekends, around US$60 for adults and US$45 for children on weekdays. IBT notes that "a two-day weekend ticket for two adults and one child comes close to China's average urban monthly wage."Opening day tickets sold out in a few hours after they had gone on sale at midnight, March 28. However, more tickets were put on sale several days before the official opening day. To all who come to this happy place, welcome.
Shanghai Disneyland is your land. Here you leave today and discover imaginative worlds of fantasy and adventure that ignite the magical dreams within us all. Shanghai Disneyland is distinctly Chinese, it was created
Tomorrowland is one of the many themed lands featured at all of the Magic Kingdom styled Disney theme parks around the world owned or licensed by The Walt Disney Company. Each version of the land is different and features numerous attractions that depict views of the future. Disneyland Park in Paris includes a similar area called Discoveryland, which shares some elements with other Tomorrowlands but emphasizes visions of the future inspired by Jules Verne. Walt Disney was known for his futurist views and, through his television programs, showed the American public how the world was moving into the future. Tomorrowland was the realized culmination of his views. In his own words: "Tomorrow can be a wonderful age. Our scientists today are opening the doors of the Space Age to achievements that will benefit our children and generations to come; the Tomorrowland attractions have been designed to give you an opportunity to participate in adventures that are a living blueprint of our future." It is this movement into the future that has, on occasion, left Tomorrowland mired in the past.
Disneyland's Tomorrowland is now in its third generation, the Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland is in its second. The Walt Disney Company has mentioned that it wanted to keep Tomorrowland from becoming "Yesterdayland"; as a self-referential joke along this line, the 2007 Walt Disney Animation Studios film Meet the Robinsons features an amusement park called Todayland, which has rides that look similar to Space Mountain and Disneyland's original Rocket Jets. The first Tomorrowland opened at Disneyland on July 17, 1955, with only several of its planned attractions open, due to budget cuts; the construction of the park was rushed, so Tomorrowland was the last land to be finished. It became something of a corporate showcase, despite Walt Disney's reluctance. Monsanto Company, American Motors, Richfield Oil, Dutch Boy Paint were some of the many companies to open showcases in Tomorrowland in the first few years. Since the park was on a strict budget, one cost-cutting idea was to reuse the sets of the Nautilus from Disney's 1954 movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as a walkthrough attraction.
This remained open until 1966. For the first four years, most of Tomorrowland was open space and considered to be corporate-fueled. However, the area gained more attractions as time passed, many of which have since been removed; when Disneyland opened, Tomorrowland represented the future in the year 1986. Tomorrowland's showpiece was the TWA Moonliner, derived from Disney's "Man In Space" television episodes developed in the 1950s; the Moonliner was the tallest structure in the park at the time taller than the park icon Sleeping Beauty Castle. The Moonliner hosted Rocket To The Moon, a ride to the moon; the entrance showpiece was the clock of the world showing the time anywhere on earth. The north show building hosted Circarama U. S. A. which showed movies on nine screens, space station X-1 which showed a satellite view of America. The south show building showed the Monsanto Hall of Chemistry, a walk-through tour about chemistry. Autopia, an opening-day attraction, gave visitors a view of the National Interstate System, to be built in the future.
The attraction still remains open today, though it has been modified and rebuilt several times. This is the only attraction in Tomorrowland, open since opening day. Several new attractions opened in 1955. Among them were Tomorrowland Boats, The World Beneath Us, which showed the Earth's geology, the Aluminum Hall of Fame, sponsored by Kaiser Aluminum; the final Tomorrowland attraction to open in 1955 was The Flight Circle which demonstrated methanol-powered model planes and cars. In 1956, Tomorrowland Boats were renamed Phantom Boats, were closed in the year. Dutch Boy Color Gallery opened in 1956, sponsored Dutch Boy Paint. Two major attractions opened in 1956: the Astro Jets, where guests were able to fly their own rockets, Skyway to Fantasyland, where guests rode "Buckets" over to Fantasyland. In 1957, the Monsanto House of the Future, a plastic house with four wings cantilevered from a central plinth, was built; this was similar to precursors at previous World's Fairs, though those were homes furnished with modern conveniences and aimed at housewives.
Disneyland's attraction displayed conveniences such as picture phones and television remote controls, it introduced many people to their first microwave oven. The Viewliner opened where guests could ride in "the fastest miniature train in the world." It closed the next year making it the shortest lived Disney attraction ever. In 1959, three major attractions, the park's first billed E-ticket attractions, opened at Tomorrowland; these were the Disneyland Monorail, Submarine Voyage, the Matterhorn. These additions were collectively so large in scope that they were televised as the second opening of Disneyland. New attractions came and some went as Walt Disney focused his efforts on the 1964–65 New York World's Fair. After the Fair closed, he turned his attention to a new Tomorrowland and the Florida Project, which would become Walt Disney World. By 1966, Tomorrowland was becoming outdated. Most of its attractions were only there as advertisements for various sponsors, such as Monsanto, despite the 1959 Tomorrowland expansion.
In 1967, the area was rebuilt with new attractions and scenery. The original layout was demolished, with a few exceptions, a new set of buildings were erected; the addition of the Carousel of Progress, Adventure Thru Inner Space, an improved and larger Circle-Vision auditorium, Flight to the Moon, the PeopleMover helped give Tomorrowland its "World on the Move" theme. In 1973, "The World On T
