Editor’s Note:
  • April 18, 2014: DCA Reveals Maleficent – The Maleficent sneak peek has opened in DCA and the redone Bug's theater is a great venue for it. DCA gets to keep the new RealD 3D system when the regular Bugs show returns in June - a huge improvement over the original film format. The Studio executives came down from Burbank on Wednesday to approve the venue and were thrilled with the results. AP audiences raved at their Thursday night preview.  ||  And don't forget to sign up for the MiceChat Gumball Rally. We are just about to sell out the event and don't want you to miss out.  The Gumball Rally is a race through Disneyland to see who can ride the most attractions in a single day. Information and tickets HERE. ×0
