ANAHEIM (997NOW/CBSSF) – Disneyland had their grand opening of their new Little Mermaid ride & newly updated Star Tours ride and 99.7 Now’s Afternoon Hostess, Letty B and Producer Christine were there to cover the huge event! They let us in on their Disney adventures so you can get a sneak peak without waiting in line! Be prepared for some Jedi fighting and to be taken to a ‘whole new world’!
We did our live broadcast from Disney’s California Adventures for the Little Mermaid attraction and got to ride The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Undersea Adventure! It was super cute, includes all our favorite characters and really takes you through the story! We interviewed some of the hard-working Disneyland staff including Skipper the manager of Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel, Larry J Nikolia the concept designer and creative director behind Little Mermaid attraction, and Stacia Martin a sketch artist for Disneyland who drew our favorite Disney characters for us!
We did our live broadcast inside Disneyland Theme Park! It was the official grand opening of the updated Star Tours ride and we got a chance to go on it! It was really neat because it’s in 3D now, just be careful not to get motion sickness because it feels so real! There are over 50 scenarios so you never know which adventure you’ll be taken on!
