    Disney Parks "Dreams" commercial

    I'm kinda surprised there hasn't been any comment on the Disney commercial that aired last night on "Dancing with the Stars."

    Oh.

    Maybe it's because nobody under the age of 45 watches that show.

    Anyway, "Part One" starred James Denton (Desperate Housewives) and several other celebrities describing dreams ... theirs, other people's ... it went on for about a full minute.

    The hair on the back of my head kinda stood up, because it sounded like a Disney commercial, but no name was ever mentioned. Just a very quick copyright notice on the bottom.

    Anyway, it was pretty effective, because I had a lump in my throat when it was over.

    I'm such a sap.

    Part 2 airs tonight.

    I just saw Part 2 of the new Disney commercial and liked it better than part 1.

    What was part 2 like?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Part 2 shows a group of kids jumping on their bed and are magically lifted off their beds and begin to fly, of course, just like Peter Pan. Next, a little boy is walking down the street and notices a big shadow is cast over him. He looks up and suddenly he's flying on Dumbo. A little girl runs and opens the front door of her house and sees Cinderella's carriage and several footmen waiting for her. She exits the house, and magically, she is dressed as Cinderella and runs to the carriage. The end of the commercial shows a family standing in front of the castle watching the fireworks. I found Part 2 to be very sweet.

    Try that and if doesn't go directly to the page, click on the bottom where it says "videos" and it will take you to the commercials for the campaign:

    As a note the 'video' link won't show up unless your on the 'high bandwith' site so you may need to switch to it. (And for some reason the sound was turned off on the site and I had to turn that on)

    I also liked part 2 much better than part 1. The Year of a Million Dreams music is really uplifting and inspirational. The whole commercial was good until the last few seconds when the narrator said "Disney Parks."

    That description of Part 2 sounds just like the commercial they previewed to us CMs weeks ago... I liked it.

    Part 2 was great for all of those who dont follow the boards and needed to get what it was all about. I saw the pirate and princess portion as a big ad for the new offerings in Fantasyland theater area transforms children into their dream characters. I would have loved to see more of the dream room in the hotels and parks. Overall I liked the low key ads that seemed more aimed at parents and adults especially in the tv time slot aired.

    Re: Disney Parks "Dreams" commercial

    So, tonight the commercial came on and my daughter jumps up and says "COOL!" I'm waiting for the obvious "Disneyland!" connection since we were folding laundry and starting to pack for Saturday morning's flight to the Happy Place... but NO. She says "MOM! That's the music from the "I DO believe in fairies" section of the Peter Pan movie!!" Well, guess what? She was right! And for those that haven't seen every Peter Pan movie like we have, the movie she is referring to is the live action movie released on Christmas Day, 2003. From Universal Studios.

    Having said that, for those that LOVE the music, now you know a place to get it!

    Giving credit where it's due -- BFJen DID notice the music being from Peter Pan!! (the quote is from 8/25) Yeah Jen! I love that part of the movie and the music really is what makes it great!!

    I don't watch enough television, so I haven't seen any of these commercials.

    Re: Disney Parks "Dreams" commercial

    I saw part 2 during Survivor (or was it Lost? The only 2 shows I watch and I can't get them straight. Oh! Amazing Race - that makes 3).

    It was pretty cool how they turn the mundane and everyday into something MAGICAL like driving a car at night becomes a trip through outer space!

    They had me totally captivated until Kelsey Grammar came out with "Disney Parks" and that logo appeared. It was like "Pick a park - any park." Frankly, I would like to see commercials for each park (including the "offshore" parks) that highlight what differentiates them from each other. Give people a reason to consider going abroad rather than just default to the closest one because they are all the same anyway.

    The one we saw during Grey's Anatomy showed WDW. Then said "DisneyParks".

    Umm... actually... what's being described as Part 2 in these posts isn't actually Part 2, it's a separate commercial entirely. Part 2 can be viewed on the web site, as well as Part 1 and the other commercial.
