We're excited to be participating in Disneyland Half Marathon weekend again this year and we've got a programming lineup to keep you excited even if you can't join in the fun in Anaheim! All day this Friday starting at 8am we're playing exclusively music and audio from Disneyland, The Happiest Place on Earth!

Then, leave your running playlists at home, because we're streaming a RunDisney powermix for the runners on Saturday and Sunday.

For the Disneyland 10k on Saturday, the powermix will play from the race start at 5:30am to 7:30am PST.

Drones in Disneyland?

According to an article yesterday in the Walt Street Journal, The Walt Disney Company has applied
to three UAV(unmanned aerial vehicle) related patents.

According to the request, Imagineering is designing an aerial display system that would allow multiple drones to work in concert to display images in the sky by either coordinating large marionettes, floating pixels, or holding up large display projection screens.

Steve Davison Releases Preview Video of HKDL's Paint The Night Parade

Disney is currently in the final preparations of its first nighttime electrical parade to be introduced since 2001, when Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade: Dreamlights first took to the streets of Tokyo Disneyland. Since that time, both Fantillusion and SpectroMagic have disappeared. Since 2010 saw the demise of SpectroMagic, the Main Street Electrical Parade at the Magic Kingdom and Tokyo's Dreamlights are the only two nighttime parades performing at Disney Parks anywhere on the globe.

Disney Paint the Night is part of a massive effort Disney has been putting into Hong Kong Disneyland in an attempt to turn around its business over the last couple years. It has also been rumored that Disneyland in Anaheim will see a "sister" version of the Paint the Night parade as part of its upcoming Diamond Anniversary celebration this spring 2015.

Here is the preview that was released on the Steve Davison Facebook page today.
