Press Release: Theme Park Studios Coming Soon!

I've been a supporter of Pantera Game's Theme Park Studio since their initial Kickstarter Campaign. I've posted a few articles about their progress at Mice Chat:

I'm really excited about the game and Pantera Game Studio has announced an Early Access Launch Date!

Theme Park Studio is almost here!

Early Access Launch Date: February 27th, 2014.

Purchase and download Theme Park Studio: http://store.steampowered.com/app/254590/

We are inviting theme park and roller coaster fans to take part in our “Early Access” development build that will be released on Steam February 27th, 2014.

If you have purchased Theme Park Studio via Kickstarter or our own crowd-funding, you should have received your Steam Key already!

This first release allows our community to get started designing their parks, creating custom assets, and importing/sharing custom scenery.

Most modules are 70 percent complete. Each will be released in phases, with additional modules unlocked as we polish and add new features requested by the community. 

Theme Park Studio has branched out way beyond its original design, as we listened to our customer base. We have held focus group meetings with Kickstarter backers, interacted with forum members, and truly set out to build the ultimate theme park sandbox game, shaped by the community.

Theme Park Studio is a powerful suite of tools that allow players to design, build, and experience stunning amusement parks of their own design. Players can build whatever they can imagine, and then share it online for others to experience.

When all phases are released, Theme Park Studio will feature:

  • Custom coaster creation. Players can bend, pull, and stretch coasters into any design they wish. Prefabricated templates are provided as helpers, if desired.
  •  Custom Flat Rides. Design your own flat ride from the ground up, or select from our pre-built ride library.

  • Park guests: After opening your park, watch park guests (peeps) tour your theme park and hop on your coasters and flat rides.
  • Mesh importing: Build your own environmental objects and import them for maximum customization.

  • Particle effects, including fire, smoke, fountains, fireworks, and weather effects. Our particle effects module is very versatile, allowing the player to create a wide range of effects. Particles can have triggers for setting up shows or like coasters splashing through water.
  • Landscaping: Import your own height maps and textures to create stunning landscapes, or custom sculpt one of your own design. 

  • Water: Control water parameters like speed, level, color, and ripple size.
  • Vegetation: Our engine features an advanced vegetation solution. Our proprietary technology allows players to build everything from grass to elaborate oaks. Trees are procedurally generated and can be controlled by custom wind and turbulence settings. This technology has been integrated into Theme Park Studio.

  • Oculus Rift Support: Due to overwhelming requests for this support, we are proud to announce this cutting edge technology will be included in all versions of Theme Park Studio.

Are you excited about this new release? Did you support their Kickstarter?

A Hidden Disney Detail: MuppetVision

It's obvious that the Muppets were allowed to decorate their area of Disney's Hollywood Studios. If you've ever walked around the attraction building (close to the Stage One Company Store), then you know that the Muppets had a great time paining and decorating the building. I ran across this great little detail on a recent trip.

Obviously, the Muppets converted a planter into a giant sundae with a cherry on top!

Do you have a favorite hidden detail from the Muppets?

Inside the Whimsy Works by Jimmy Johnson

I pre-ordered a copy of Inside the Whimsy Works: My Life with Walt Disney Productions by Jimmy Johnson (Edited by Greg Ehrbar and Didier Ghez).

A full review will be coming soon to Communicore Weekly (the Greatest Online Show™) and the Disney Review at Mice Chat.

I'm a huge fan of Mouse Tracks (by Tim Hollis and Ehrbar)  and the Walt's People series (by Didier) but I wasn't sure what to expect from Jimmy Johnson's biography.

The book is based on the diaries that Jimmy kept and gave to the Disney Archives. Greg and Didier did a bit of editing magic on it and present this amazing Disney resource to us. Jimmy had a pretty amazing career and, at times, seemed to be in the right place at the right time. He really pushed the music publishing for Disney and was instrumental in helping to shape the company.

What truly is spectacular about Inside the Whimsy Works is that you get a really good sense for what it was like to work at the Disney Studios, but not in animation. Most of the memoirs that we see deal with animation; very few step outside and look at other areas of the company. We're fortunate that Jimmy's memoir has been released.

I definitely recommend this book as a purchase, even though I'm not more than two-thirds through it. Besides getting a great book about the history of the company, you're helping to support more independent Disney-related research and publishing!

Wonderful World of Customer Service at Disney by J. Jeff Kober

I received a review copy of J. Jeff Kober's book, The Wonderful World if Customer Service at Disney.

I've been reading Jeff's writing at Disney at Work for many years and enjoy his thoughtful articles on customer service inside and outside of Disney. Jeff also shares insightful articles on the business side of Disney with the unique perspective of a former employee with ties to the organization. I've really enjoyed his articles on My Magic+ and the MagicBands.

A full review will be coming soon for Communicore Weekly (the Greatest Online Show™) and The Disney Review at Mice Chat but I wanted to offer a mini-review in the meantime.

There have been many books written about customer service and Disney. In the mid- to late-1990s, Disney was often held up as the leader for customer service across most industries. Jeff offers a unique perspective because he's no longer writing from inside the company but is applying his knowledge from his years with Disney and from his years teaching organizational practices in customer service.

You'll find a lot of the same information from other customer service books that focus on Disney, but Jeff is able to add many personal anecdotes that serve the lessons well. Especially since the anecdotes are all related to Disney theme parks, it's very easy to put yourself in Jeff's shoes and think about your own reactions. Jeff offers many common sense approaches to customer service at all levels in an organization. He also discusses ways to build customer service into your organization before you run into problems or issues.

The Wonderful World of Customer Service at Disney is a great choice for anyone responsible for leading customer service in their organization, no matter what their level. Front line employees and executives will be able to glean the basis for building or restructuring service at their organization.

Maharajah Jungle Trek Aviary

One of the more enjoyable experiences at Disney's Animal Kingdom is a leisurely stroll through the Maharajah Jungle Trek. It's a great way to slow down and experience a section of a theme park that truly takes you out of the park experience. I often jest that Disney's Animal Kingdom Park is a half-day park, simply because of the lack of major attractions. If you take the time to slow down, though, you'll get to experience a rich tapestry that is really astounding. My main argument is still that the Joe Rohde brand of theming was a bit of overkill, to say the least.

Maharajah Jungle Trek

Bird Aviary

One of my favorite sections is the aviary. I'm not sure why, unless it's the proximity to the birds or that it is really hard to believe that you're in Central Florida. (Photos were taken in 2010 and 2013.)

There are some amazing birdhouses inside the royal aviary. Let's take a look at some of them.

There are bird-related decorations throughout the aviary.

Do you have a favorite birdhouse or section of the Maharajah Jungle Trek?

Happy Valentine's Day from Totally Minnie!

I wrote a column about Totally Minnie for Valentine's Day last year at Mice Chat. It was a great look back at a time when Disney tried to change Minnie Mouse's image to align it with pop culture (as we've seen recently, not always a great idea). The initiative included a year-long tribute to Minnie Mouse that was comprised of television specials, a parade at Disneyland and a stage show at Walt Disney World.

Check out my article at Mice Chat: Totally Minnie for Valentine's Day!

There was also a record that includes ten fast-paced songs!

Did you have this album? Did you ever get to see the parade or the stage show back in 1986?

Press Release: Imperial Update Unleashed for ‘Star Wars: Tiny Death Star’

I've spent some time playing Star Wars: Tiny Death Star and it's a fairly enjoyable business simulator game. Disney has released a few upgrades to the game.

The Empire is entering phase two of its destructive master plan in making the Death Star fully operational with the launch of the new Imperial Update.  
Now, Star Wars: Tiny Death Star players can go even deeper into the Dark Side with regular Imperial Events to fulfill the Empire’s sinister scheme of amassing resources and collecting special rewards. The game’s overhauled Imperial Assignments system gives players even more missions with additional requirements to be handsomely rewarded. An Events system has also been built to handle the multiple types of events players will be participating in. Finally, a brand new level has been created to access all the new rewards earned: the Cargo Bay.  
It’s time to start building resources for the Imperial Army as it will eventually require AT-ATs, TIE Fighters, etc. for the invasion of Rebel Bases and completion of the Death Star’s primary weapon!  
In the Imperial update for Star Wars: Tiny Death Star players will now have: 
  • New Imperial Assignments System: The Emperor is demanding for more work to be completed, so do the Emperor’s bidding by visiting the new, Imperial Assignments center. 
  • Complete over 100 new missions and be handsomely rewarded. 
  • Weekly Special Events: Participate in special, limited-time events to protect your battle station.
  • Exclusive Rewards: Earn completely brand-new rewards such as VIPs, Imperial Bux, Costumes, Levels, and Characters by completing assignments and special events. 
  • Cargo Bay Floor: It’s your one stop shop to collect special rewards and packages as appreciation for service to the Empire.

PRESS RELEASE: D23 Destination D: Attraction Rewind

I attended the D23 Destination D Celebration of 40 years of Walt Disney World in May, 2011 and it was a spectacular event.

You can read my review of the event, here.

So, when word was released by D23 about a similar event being held this summer, I was pretty excited. I've also spoken to a few of the presenters and there is going to be a heavy 1964/1965 New York World's Fair presence. If it even comes close the the Destination D event from 2011, then it will not disappoint.

Will we see this many Disney Legends in Florida again?

Disney Legend and Imagineer Bob Gurr surprises the audience by turning the tables and taking pictures of them as his fellow Disney Legends laugh along with the gag. © Disney

DESTINATION D: ATTRACTION REWIND presented by H20 Plus: Walt Disney once said, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” It’s in that spirit that guests this summer will have the opportunity to visit—or revisit—some of the most beloved Disney attractions of yesteryear. Destination D: Attraction Rewind, held July 26 and 27 at Walt Disney World Resort, will bring Disney archivists, Imagineers, Legends and luminaries together to celebrate fan favorites such as Adventure Thru Inner Space, If You Had Wings, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with rarely seen concept art and images; vintage video clips; and revealing stories. In addition, several presentations will be dedicated to the 1964–65 New York World’s Fair, which spawned beloved attractions like it’s a small world and Carousel of Progress.
