Box Office: 'Transformers 4' Stays Atop Global Top 10 Chart

PREVIOUS, 8:35 AM PT: Disney s Maleficent crossed $600M this week , as I reported on Wednesday. But the big news here is that it is also the film that has finally snatched the No. 1 crown from Disneys own Frozen in Japan. I suspected it would do so, and it earned the title with an estimated $7.1M debut. That marks the biggest opening weekend for a live-action import in 2014 and is also the biggest bow for an Angelina Jolie title in the market. Frozen, which was No. 1 for an amazing 16 consecutive frames, added an estimated $1.8M in Japan this weekend (the cume there is a regal $240.8M). That is likely to put it into the No. 3 spot given Edge Of Tomorrow also bowed locally.

Hogsmeade, JapanGetting ready for the next Wizarding World of Harry Potter Written by Robert Niles Published: July 3, 2014 at 10:08 AM While Harry Potter fans await the official opening of Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida next week, theme park fans on the other side of the world will be getting their own Wizarding World of Harry Potter one week after that.

Osaka's Wizarding World is based on the Hogsmeade layout from the original at Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando. The differences? There's no Dragon Challenge roller coaster, and there's only one way in or out of the land, but there's a longer wooded path defining that entrance, creating more of a sense of separation from the rest of the park than found in the Orlando original.

Apple Iwatch And Disney - Business Insider

Frozen Summer Fun LIVE! coming to Walt Disney World with royal welcome, stage show, fireworks, and park wide party | Inside the Magic

It essentially acts as a digital ID that you wear around your wrist. The sensors within the band are also contextually aware and can detect where you are. Here's how Bajarin described one experience: But these RFID bands also had proximity features so when we were on a ride like Splash Mountain where they take a picture of you as you start the downward slide, it automatically sensed from our bands we were on the ride and that picture was automatically sent to our Disney picture site as well. Bajarin notes this mobile identity aspect could be crucial for the success of the iWatch. He even went so far as to say that Apple "would be crazy" seaworld vacation packages not to pursue such an idea. What's more, this concept appears to seamlessly fit with other initiatives Apple is rumored to be prioritizing moving forward. Numerous reports have suggested that the company will dive deeper into mobile payments this year, and Bajarin's reasoning makes the iWatch seem like a perfect fit for that goal. Bajarin writes: Imagine going into a Starbucks and just touching your iWatch or iBand to the terminal, entering a PIN numberand it is charged to your Apple account...Yes, you can do this with an iPhone now but that means taking it out of your pocket or purse and it is only single authentication at present. In a wearable, it is much easier to use for entering the home and for all types of interactions and transactions. New products around the connected home will also supposedly be a big priority for Apple in the coming months. Apple just announced its HomeKit smart home platform for developers earlier this month, and the company is said to be working on its own connected home hardware as well.

NCI566711Such a treat, elegant Carthay Circle Restaurant at Disney California Adventure park, where you?re whisked upstairs for lunch or dinner in the beautiful dining room, inspired by Hollywood?s Golden Age, or on the two open-air terraces. Sipping a craft cocktail, it?s hard to imagine you?re in the middle of a bustling theme park. To take advantage of the amazing summertime produce, Chef Andrew Sutton has added creative seasonal dishes to the dinner menu, with two new starters: an heirloom tomato and avocado salad with baby arugula, fresh basil and yellow tomato vinaigrette, and roasted chicken broth with basil and fava beans, fresh peas, carrots, ham and grilled chicken.

We put Carthay Circle Restaurant at the top of the ?must-do? Disneyland experience ? beyond Chef Sutton?s amazing cuisine, it?s a slice of Disney history, with the décor inspired by the original Carthay Circle Theatre, built in 1926, that played a significant role in the life of Walt Disney.

?girl Meets World,? ?zapped? Deliver For Disney Channel In Friday Premiere | Variety

Parry Gripp Talks about Disney?s Latest Animated Offering: 7D « Nerdist

SLEEPY, DOC, HAPPY, GRUMPY, BASHFUL, DOPEY, SNEEZY Disney Channel gave Girl a strong launchpad by skedding it behind the premiere of original telepic Zapped, featuring two of the channels latest stars, Zendaya and Spencer Boldman. Zapped opened at 8 p.m. to 5.7 million viewers, enough to make it the top-rated cable telecast of the year to date in kids 2-11 (2.9 million), kids 6-11 (2.3 million) and tweens 9-14 (2.1 million). However, Zapped fell short of the high bar set last summer by Disney Channels retro beach-party musical Teen Beach Movie , which garnered 8.4 million viewers in its July 2013 debut. Girl bowed at 9:45 p.m. with 2.3 million viewers in kids 2-11, 1.8 million in kids 6-11 and 1.7 million in tweens. In a clear sign that parents were watching Zapped with their kids, the telepic did a healthy 1.3 million viewers in adults 18-49. Girl brought in 1.6 million viewers in adults 18-49. With Girl, the series that picks up where ABCs 1990s TGIF comedy Boy Meets World generated a tidal wave of media coverage and nostalgia for the Alphabets distinct brand of family comedies from the 1980s and 90s. Boy Meets World reruns were a staple on Disney Channel for years, which primed the pump for interest in Girl. Disney Channel said Girl ranks as the most-viewed series ever on the Watch Disney Channel authenticated app and the most downloaded Disney Channel series preview on iTunes.

But when I was a kid we had movies like The Cat From Outer Space remember that? N: Yes! Theres a generation of us that grew up on Wonderful World of Disney we would watch it every Sunday night! PG: Yep! I watched The Wonderful World of Disney every Sunday night! N: Where do you find inspiration when youre creating music for a TV show Obviously the show itself, but do you ever pull from outside sources? PG: Well, it has to happen really fast. And they send me the script, so Im working from a script. For instance, there will be a part when Happy will sing a song and sometimes there are lyrics, sometimes there arent. A lot comes from hearing the actors voices in my head and trying to make it funny how they would say it. I was inspired by the Robin Hood movie with Roger Miller it just has great acoustic guitars and singing I used that a lot in reference with this show.

Screen Shot 2014-06-20 at 4.21.21 PM?I run to prove what I can do and who I am.? Most of us would expect a strong statement like that to come from an adult but it didn?t.

As I mentioned, Sarah Kate is a runner. She belongs to the running club at school, trains with her mother and participates in races. What you will view website be surprised to learn is she does all of this while living with Cerebral Palsy. A neurological disease making walking difficult and running almost impossible ? almost! Sticking to her motto, ?Finish strong, never stop,? Sarah Kate took on the challenge of the 1-mile run. Starting out strong she will be the first to admit her legs got tired and started to hurt. With her wheelchair always close by, she never once thought about sitting down. As the finish drew close and the crowd cheered her on, Sarah Kate responded by picking up the pace. Pushing her own wheelchair to steady herself, she crossed the finish line. A victory for Sarah Kate, a victory for everyone watching. Not dwelling on what she can?t do, Sarah Kate focuses on what she can do. Her message, ? If you want to do something just go for it and don?t let anything stand in your way, and just finish strong.? If you have been looking for inspiration to start a healthy active lifestyle and participate in a runDisney event, or needing motivation to push through long training runs, then please take a few minutes to watch Sarah Kate?s story.

Scientists Find Experimental Support For Killer Whales' Ability To Learn New Dialects

Scientists Find Experimental Support for Killer Whales' Ability to Learn New Dialects by Staff Comments A team of scientists from Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute (HSWRI) and SeaWorld San Diego has provided the strongest evidence yet that killer whale dialects are learned. The study found that juvenile male killer whales are capable of learning new call types when they undergo a change in social association. Killer whales have vocal repertoires that scientists call ?dialects? because they?re composed of calls unique to particular social groups. Discovering how whales develop these dialects hasn't been possible in the wild because of the inherent challenges in tracking an individual whale?s vocalizations and behavior regularly and for extended periods of time. The HSWRI study took advantage of the unique habitat at SeaWorld that was outfitted with multichannel video and eight hydrophones. This environment allowed the researchers to record and analyze the calls made by individual whales over a five-year period. Learning whether social association affects the calls of killer whales sheds important light on how wild populations of whales interact. Scientists still don?t know if and how webpage populations of killer whales can merge. The data from this study give clues about how that might occur. To find out more about this and other research projects at SeaWorld visit www.seaworld.com/truth.

The AirClipz could be the hottest mobile accessory for frequent flyers Photo courtesy Disney To review, Walt Disney World allows visitors to make advance reservations for three attractions a day under Fastpass+, via the My Disney Experience link on disneyworld.com. Guests who have reserved a stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel may use the Fastpass+ system to reserve ride and show times up to 60 days in advance of their trip. Annual passholders and other ticket holders may reserve times up to 30 days in advance of their visit. Once inside the park, Disney visitors may book additional Fastpass+ reservations, one at a time, after using their initial three Fastpass+ reservations. That's why we suggest that visitors consider try to schedule their initial three Fastpass+ times for early in the day, so that they can get additional line-skipping reservations during the rest of the day. In Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's separated the shows and rides eligible for Fastpass+ reservations into two tiers. You can reserve only one "Tier 1" attraction (the really popular ones) in advance, and must select "Tier 2" attractions (the less popular ones) for your other two Fastpass+ times. At Epcot, Disney's moving Living with the Land up to Tier 1, and demoting Maelstrom and the Character Spot to Tier 2. At Hollywood Studios, The Great Movie Ride moves up to Tier 1.

Mono mono twins Resort Events Resorts As reported in July , some refrigerators in non-Disney Vacation Club rooms at Walt Disney World are being replaced due to a product defect. All Walt Disney World Resort rooms with the exception of DVC Villas, the family suites at the Art of Animation and All-Star Movie resorts, and the cabins at Fort Wilderness are impacted. Disney says "the schedule for replacing the refrigerators at these Resorts is expected to last several months." In the interim, if you have a reservation at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and need a refrigerator for medical reasons, we recommend contacting your resort directly to inquire about availability during your trip. The hotel should be able to arrange for one if your room does not yet have a new refrigerator, but supplies may be limited while they work to replace all of the malfunctioning units. Polynesian Never Land Club Children's Activity Center closed for refurbishment through January 1, 2015. Polynesian refurbishment of the lobby ongoing.

I seen Anna and Elsa with FP+. I highly advise you get your FP+ early or you'll miss out. From Rich T on June 12, 2014 at 8:13 AM If they want tier 1 options for non-thrill, then what do you consider Illuminations and Soarin'? Even Maelstrom was rather tame. and Test Track is literally a fast car ride. Maybe its a capacity issue. But Living with the Land in tier 1 is an absolute joke. That was a great ride, with the best food court and a short line. Its educational, fun and relaxing. But I find it ridiculous to equate that experience with Illuminations, Soarin, or Test Track.
