The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at Disneyland – Shot with the Apple Iphone 4 720P HD
Some history – After the rise in popularity of Walt Disney’s film adaptation of Winnie the Pooh, Disney Imagineers made plans in the late 1970s for a Winnie the Pooh attraction at Disneyland’s soon-to-be renovated Fantasyland. However in 1983, when the renovated Fantasyland reopened, a Winnie the Pooh attraction was missing.
. An original plan from the mid 1990s had an indoor and outdoor light boat ride featuring a Winnie the Pooh theme, which was shelved by 1999. So, a new dark ride was planned. However, Disneyland is the only resort of all five Disney Resorts to have little room for expansion. The only solution to open an attraction in the park was to utilize a current attraction.
Fantasyland was ruled out because it contained the least amount of available space and because of the age of its buildings; park managers anticipated that the attraction would be popular and decided to place it in an area that could better accommodate the crowds. Critter Country, a small parcel between New Orleans Square and Frontierland was ultimately chosen, since Winnie the Pooh already had his own greeting area in that land. The area already featured two popular attractions, Splash Mountain and Country Bear Jamboree, the latter being the first attraction to open in the land (then Bear Country) in 1972.
Imagineers chose to replace the Country Bear Playhouse (Country Bear Jamboree) with Pooh due to its lack of popularity, which would require major excavation for space and leveling for the ride. When news of the former attraction’s demise broke, many fans were once more upset at the loss of another classic attraction and again sought to change the park managers’ minds. However, then-managers Paul Pressler and Cynthia Harris, both unpopular with Disneyland enthusiasts, ignored this and continued.
Pooh’s dream: This part of the ride uses 2D animation – differing from the rest of the ride, to differentiate the dreaming.
The budget for the attraction was set at a reported $30,000,000, most of it dedicated to reformatting the Country Bear Playhouse show building. When it finally opened in 2003, it received large promotions by park management and lines were somewhat long at first, but quickly dropped off.
Its turnover rate with guests was low compared to older dark rides in Fantasyland. Some Disneyland enthusiast websites are generally critical of the attraction, considering it cheap and a bad reminder of the Paul Pressler/Cynthia Harris era of Disneyland’s management. However, for younger and other guests, the ride is considered fun and another addition to the park. Some columnists still poke fun at it by posting images of the attraction’s average wait times of 2 or 5 minutes while other similar rides might have 30, 75 or even 90 minute waits, even on days when the park might be at full capacity.

ELVIS COSTELLO with ALLEN TOUSSAINT & HORNS featuring STEVE NIEVE — TERRA 2007, concert on the beach Peñón del Cuervo in Malaga
Elvis Costello’s musical curiosity has not diminished over his three decade career as a singer and songwriter. He songs run freely through different musical styles, from steely rock to lyrical and ambitious pop, from big band melodies to symphonic music, with forays into country, folk, soul, reggae, jazz and even opera. Over the years Costello has received, among many other awards, a Grammy in 1998 for his “I Still Have that Other Girl” and an Oscar Nomination alongside T Bone Burnett in 2004 for “Scarlet Tide” (Cold Mountain).
The great pianist, composer, arranger, singer and producer Allen Toussaint is a living legend in New Orleans and a frequent collaborator with Costello in his musical endeavours.
Costello is now performing with the New Orleans based wind section The Crescent City and Steve Nieve on keyboards, who was one of the original members of The Attractions and who has been one of Costello’s most faithful accompanists and the person behind some of Costello’s musical arrangements.
