INTERCOT > News > Press Event Day Three 

Day Three: “What’s New, What’s Next” Event

On January 26, 2007, the Walt Disney World resort gave more details on their newest Disney Vacation Club resort and also made several announcements of what is next on the Vacation Kingdom’s horizon. Among the announcements were a new interactive 3-D ride for Disney –MGM Studios, a new promotional campaign and a new type of concierge service.

Toy Story Mania

"Toy Story Mania - An interactive new ride coming to Disney-MGM Studios at Walt Disney World and Disney's California Adventure at Disneyland. Guests will immerse themselves in the world of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 when they don 3D Glasses and are shrunk to the size of a toy and sent thru a midway themed route. At each game booth, they will aim their "toy cannon" at animated targets while they encounter Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Bo Peep and the Little Green Men." -JohnY

Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas

"Concept art from the latest Disney Vacation Club property was featured." -JohnY 1/26/07






Annie Leibovitz Promotional Photos

Annie made an appearance at the event and was commissioned by Disney to put famous folks into classic Disney scenes. The result was simply breathtaking... some amazing photography that will no doubt fill the desktop background on computers of Disney fans worldwide if they can get their hands on them!

1) Scarlet Johansson - is Cinderella and is seen running down a flight of stairs as the clock stikes midnight. She has on a one of a kind Harry Winston tiara that includes 62 carats of sparkling diamonds and is valued at $325,000 along with a Nicoletta Santoro gown.

2) David Beckham - is Prince Philip from Sleeping Beauty, slaying an evil dragon.

3) Beyonce - appears as "Alice in Wonderland" twirling in a teacup with Lyle Lovett as March Hare and Oliver Platt as the Mad Hatter.

"Honestly, these pictures are incredible and took everyone's breath away at the event." -JohnY

Disney’s Online Concierge

"I saw Disney's Online Concierge demoed which is an interactive computer that is currently in testing at the Contemporary Resort... it allows you to customize a day planner, make reservations, receive messages, make tee times, play games and more." -- JohnY

Cinderella Castle Suite


"It is pretty awesome and I feel very privileged to have been able to see and photograph it today. It's not huge... space is at a premium in the castle... but it is definitely luxurious and very special. Certainly it will make for a night that you will never forget. From the stars in the ceiling of the soaking tub, to the picture of Cinderella over the fireplace that doubles as a plasma tv, to the beds fit for a royal family, to the fireplace that shoots sparks of "light fireworks" in the shape of a Mickey head (yes, that is the one and only hidden Mickey in the suite according to today’s tour) and the marble and tile everywhere, it's hard not to call it awesome. I was impressed.

Guides still wouldn't say what would happen to the suite after the year of a million dreams - but they spent way too much money on this for it to go away. I would venture to say it will be around for quite some time." -- JohnY
