Thursday October 15th - it's moving day!

Today's Theme: Making the Magic!

Walt Disney Imagineering -- See how the magic of Disney theme parks and resorts is made. Get a first-hand look at some of the creations conjured up by the architects, designers, engineers, technicians and others who make up the Disney Imagineers.

Walt Disney Studios -- Enjoy lunch at the Walt Disney Studio commissary and then browse through an assortment of memorabilia at the Studio Store. Afterwards, you'll learn the story of the Walt Disney Studio during your privately-guided tour.

Drive to Disneyland® Resort -- Head to the Happiest Place on Earth and Disney's Grand Californian Hotel® & Spa. This Craftsman-style hotel is within walking distance of both Disneyland® Park and Disney's California Adventureā„¢ Park, as well as the Downtown Disney® District, a promenade with shops and restaurants. After you are checked in, you have time on your own to relax by the pool or go shopping.

Welcome Reception at the Wine Cellar and Hook's Pointe -- Enjoy Disney-style entertainment as you sample an assortment of appetizers, along with a selection of wines for adults and juice for Junior Adventurers. Afterwards, dine on the fine family fare of this lively pirate-themed restaurant.

Once the Adventure by Disney begins on October 13th, there are THREE ways you can follow us! With new social networking, we plan to do something a little different.

There is a program called "Twitpic" that allows one to send photos via a mobile phone directly to Twitter. Beci Mahnken and myself will be posting photos "live" via the Twitter network.

We also have our twitter accounts transmitting automatically to our Facebook accounts. So those of you who are "friends" can follow our adventures that way!


At the same time, AllEars team members Jack Marshall and Debbie Koma will be back home copying our Twitter photos and combining them this daily blog. So, you can follow us either here, on Twitter or on Facebook.

I hope this provides some cool ways for you to follow us on the adventure of a lifetime, an Adventure by Disney Backstage Magic.
