    Ahh, so does Disney pay for the supplies Boudin uses at the Boudin Bakery Tour or do they pay Boudin for the products?

    Just taking an educated guess, they probably pay for the finished product. It's easy enough for them to weigh the bread that is cut up into samples and bagged/boxed for the Tour Guides to hand out, and charge for that to recoup the ingredients cost.

    (Across the way at Mission they might go for the raw flour cost, because so many of the tortillas are handed out straight off the cooling helix rack before they even hit the counting and bagging station. Or subtract the finished goods from the raw materials to get the sampled quantity.)

    And the nifty thing about having the sample handouts is they can cut up and use anything that they made the day before that was overage (for their restaurant and wholesale to the other restaurants) as the handout sample bread.

    Doesn't mater if it was soup size boule's or the bigger sandwich boules or the dinner rolls, or baguettes that they made too many of, they can all be divided out into the same cubes and wedges...

    Of course, some days they hand out whole small boule's... Lunch!

    And now I've got a hankerin' for some Sourdough toast - I think there's... Darn, all out.

    there was work done in the timon lot. The whole backstage plus part of the timon lot was torn up to add more infrustructure for more power. The future additions as well as the increased rooms for GCH required that more electrical power infrustructure be added.

    Soon the removal of asphalt and preperation of the land will begin. The additions will add 12 acres and lots of infrustructure will be needed especially for the large showroom of the big attraction.

    These little offerings in a theme park are not new. I am sure several people remember but there used to be a few more theme parks in southern CAlifornia that are no longer here.

    One used to be north of the 60 fwy (forget the name). There was also the Japanese deer park and of course Busch gardens in Van Nuys. Some of these teme parks had simple attractions that lured people by the thousands. What is interesting is that those attractions consisted of simple tours that showed how certain beverages and foods were made. Even now amusement parks across the country have a couple attractions that are basically simple tours.

    I think the problem with DCA was that there were not enough major attractions to even out the age gaps. Older people usually enjoy these little tours but in that area tehre is nothing to attract teens and younger guests.

    Yes Boudin supplies the bread for other resort locations. their name is just present in certain locations because they sponsor the area or pay royalties for there advertising. For other areas they are just considered suppliers.

    I believe Disney was using Boudin Bakery even prior to DCA. I recall seeing delivery trucks backstage back in the 90s.

    So the beer garden is going in where Pizza Oom Mow Mow etc is now. Obviously they will serve beer there; what food, if any, will be served?

    I thought the beer garden idea was shelved for now.
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

    I would imagine bratwurst and pretzels. And I hope it isn't Mickey pretzels.

    I like the variety they sell up at the Enchanted Cottage, by IASW.

    I know this is a little off topic but. What the heck is up with those Mickey Pretzels! They made me gag the first time I tried one.

    trouble is most folks won't take the time to go look for it.

    Why does a beer garden have to have German food? I know a British pub in Pasadena that has a lovely little beer garden.

    Because beer gardens are distinctly German and pubs are not.

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker

    Brady MacDonald at the LA Times Funland blog is confirming the Orange Stinger/Silly Symphonies Swings re-theme that we talked about here back in early May.

    Orange Stinger at California Adventure to get new Disney theme
    http://travel.latimes.com/daily-deal...-stinger-2059/

    The Orange Stinger swing ride will get a new Disney theme and back story as part of the planned $1.1-billion Disney’s California Adventure makeover, Walt Disney Imagineering officials confirmed.

    Gone will be the 40-foot-tall orange peel that surrounds the 48-seat spinning swing set and the Disney-free buzzing bumble bee theme, Imagineering officials said.

    In its place: a Victorian architectural style more akin to the remade Paradise Pier section of the Anaheim theme park represented by the new Toy Story Mania attraction.

    Imagineering officials declined to elaborate on the new “Disney theme.”

    The Blue Sky Disney fan site reported the Orange Stinger will be redubbed…… “The Silly Symphonies Swings,” with a theme based on “The Band Concert” 1935 cartoon short featuring the first colorized Mickey Mouse.

    The made-over 1 1/2-minute ride would feature a twirling tornado mast with smoke-spewing special effects, an orchestral score and a “Conductor Mickey” on top, according to Blue Sky.


    And here's the excerpt from the 5/11 Blue Sky Disney article on it:

    Blue Sky Buzz (Anaheim): Band Aid...
    http://blueskydisney.blogspot.com/20...-band-aid.html

    Things are still developing for DCA, particularly the Paradise Pier area. Remember I mentioned the retheming of the Orange Stinger in my last mini-update? Want to know what it's going to be called?

    "The Silly Symphonies Swings"

    I figured a few of you would roll your eyes at that... but it actually looks quite nice, even though it's not really going to have SS cartoons on it. It's going to feature stylized designs from one cartoon. And that cartoon isn't actually a Silly Symphony. It's a very famous Disney cartoon... the one that introduced a color Mickey Mouse to the world. That's right, "The Band Concert" will be the theming on the new Orange Stinger/Silly Symphonies Swing. It's got a lot of nice details and is much more of a Disney ride. Not just in terms of having Disney characters, but in detail and downright whimsicalness... the ride will still have the theming we discussed back in that last BSA, but the mast will be painted like a tornado just like in the one in that short and as it twirls there will be smoke effects to add atmosphere. Atop the ride, seen from all sides of the Pier will be "Conductor Mickey" from the short, spinning around directing the ride. My thoughts on this are that we should equate this ride with the Dumbo ride over in DL, only for an older audience.

    That is certainly true, although it is a california theme so they don't have to stick to German food. I will say though, I would love beer and brats
