    What's Mickey Mouse Got Up His Sleeve?

    Love 'em or hate 'em, you gotta admit those Disney theme parks are endlessly fascinating — from decking employees out in so-bad-they're-good uniforms to recreating mountains to celebrating 100 years of this and 50 years of that. Seems Mickey is about to do some more reveling. This time it sounds like it'll be... different.
    The Slug received a large, ominous invitation in the mail recently for an announcevent on June 7. The invite was so big, in fact, it covered our entire kitchen table. (Pictured here with our toothbrush on the left for scale. You're welcome.) Find the text and our suspicion on what it's about after the jump, kids.

    You're invited to... dream.
    Dream big.
    No really big. Like princesses-at-the-ball and pirates-on-the-high-seas big.
    Dream bigger than you ever have before.
    June 7, 2006, will be a monumental evening of Disney announcements. Be there as Jay Rasulo, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, reveals how Disney Parks around the globe will combine imagination and innovation as never before to make millions of dreams come true.
    Join us and discover how powerful dreams can be.
    Hmmm. Our guess? A theme park that can read your mind. Muhahahaha!

    Thanks. Is there any more information about the announcement? Time, location?

    Now, now. I'm sure Mickey doesn't want uninvited folks crashing his dreamy announcement. Don't fret. The Slug will be there with ears on to find out for you.

    I hope this is something John Lasseter is involved in and not just some overhyped new marketing scheme.

    Re: So supposedly something HUGE is going down wednesday...

    I posted some stuff on another board that a friend who works in TDA told me recently, and the "TDA insider" over on that board confirmed it and went on to elaborate a bit. Here's the basic scoop on the announcement coming on June 7th:

    This will be primarily a Marketing Department driven event.

    This event will be hosted by Jay Rasulo and Michael Mendenhall, the big Marketing honcho for Disney Parks & Resorts around the world. They will be outlining the post-50th marketing plans for '07 with the global tagline "Year Of A Million Dreams". The specific tagline used for Disneyland will be "Where Dreams Come True". This is similar to the 50th deal where the overall global celebration was "The Happiest Celebration On Earth", but the Disneyland-specific tagline was "The Happiest Homecoming On Earth". Seperate, but equal.

    The new dreams marketing campaign is going to play up the "unique experiences" you can have at a Disney theme park, and how your dreams come true when you visit a Disney property. Tentative plans for Disneyland call for families being plucked out of the crowd and given special priveleges or experiences for the day. The plans call for simple little things like riding in the Mark Twain wheelhouse, to bigger things that involve monetary value like free VIP hotel stays, complimentary ice cream sundaes, complimentary private dinner with a Princess, language lessons in how to speak like a pirate, attraction backdoor priveleges for the day, complimentary admission media, etc. As if at any time just by being at Disneyland you can be picked out of the crowd and your dreams can come true.

    The insider on the other message board indicated that this marketing press conference would not announce future attractions, other than the ones already announced like Finding Nemo, etc.

    I hope this isn't more time share stuff...

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Hmmm... sounds like it could be marketing hype to me, but who knows!

    Were any of our more media connected MC'ers (read Darkbeer, Dusty or AliasD) invited? It would be great if we could get a play by play of this announcement on Wednesday!

    How Lame. But it mentions "Princess and Pirates" which is the hardticket after hours event for Walt Disney World and says Major AnnouncementS as in more than one.

    I bet it's that Six Flags is buying all of Disney parks. "Six Flags Over Disneyland!"

    It is being held in New York, anybody have a plane ticket

    Hoping there will be a feed available online, but doesn't look like it.

    Of course, I will be getting the press release after the announcement and will place it online for all to see.
