2719 HYPERION: Windows to the Past: Picketing the Reluctant Dragon

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

Most images we have discovered relating to the 1941 strike against the Walt Disney Studios feature picket lines outside the studio's Burbank location. This particular photograph from the archives of the Los Angeles Examiner shows about a half a dozen members of the Screen Cartoonist Guild picketing in front of the RKO Palace Theatre in Los Angeles.

All you need to know is that you need to have this book!
If you want to learn more about it, though, keep on reading.
Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making More Magic Real is not an update to the seminal 1996release; it is a continuation. It is a look at the Magic that the Imagineers have created since the publication of the first book.

2719 HYPERION: A Gardening Time Capsule

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

When asked about my all-time favorite books about Disney, I have a hard time distilling that list to under ten titles. Included in my top ten: Disneyland, The Nickel Tour; Walt Disney's Imagineering; Disneyland Paris - From Sketch to Reality; Walt Disney's Railroad Story; and Michael Barrier's The Animated Man. Rounding out the list is the Gardens of the Walt Disney World Resort.

2719 HYPERION: Buena Vista Obscura: Captain Cook's Hideaway

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

One aspect of the Walt Disney World Vacation Kingdom in her earliest days which is least likely to translate appropriately to our modern experience is how the entire resort was constructed as a multitude of experiences of which the Magic Kingdom was only the centerpiece

2719 HYPERION: Whistle While You Work...on EPCOT Center?

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

The following video clip from Youtube is a gem from 1982. Presented is the opening five minutes of One Man's Dream, a 1982 production that looked at Walt Disney's life from the earliest animation to the opening of EPCOT Center. In essence, EPCOT Center was seen as the completion of One Man's Dream.

2719 HYPERION: The Reality of the Situation is...

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

Realityland fills a much needed void in the WDW literature--an unofficial look at the development and construction of Walt Disney World. The book follows the same formula as Koenig's Mouse Tales titles except that more pages are devoted to the history and development of Walt Disney World (whereas Mouse Tales focuses largely on anecdotes about Disneyland instead of the construction).

2719 HYPERION: Make-Your-Own Pizza!

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

In the mid-1970s, the Magic Kingdom was usually open from 10:00am until 6:00pm. This left plenty of time for other evening activities. The Disney Village was open until 10:00pm every night and most of the resorts offered late evening activities and dining.

2719 HYPERION: Lost Imagineering: WESTCOT Center

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

When Disney announced their initial plans for creating "The Disneyland Resort" in late 1991, Disney's California Adventure was nowhere to be seen. Instead, a more compact version of EPCOT Center, dubbed WESTCOT, was the second gate.

2719 HYPERION: Windows to the Past: King-Size Latex Toys

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

Kids today with their high-tech games and gadgets have no appreciation for minimalism in toy design. Case in point--wonderful king-size latex toys from the height of the baby boom. Remember! If it was advertised on the back page of a comic book, you could be guaranteed it was a quality product. At least that was the argument we made to our parents when attempting to cajole the $1.25 needed for the order.

2719 HYPERION: Lost Imagineering: Port Disney

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

In the very early 1990s, Disney developed plans for two different theme parks for southern California, with the intention of only one ultimately being completed. Westcot Center was proposed as a second gate at Disneyland, while Port Disney was imagineered for an area at Long Beach. Neither concept saw the light of day. Westcot was abandoned entirely, though fortunately Port Disney survived to some extent in the form of Tokyo DisneySea.

In the spirit of our other posts on the original Disney Studios, formerly located at 2719 Hyperion Avenue, we present another sadly abandoned concept from the ever more infamous Disney Decade.

Mickey’s Movieland was planned for the Disney-MGM Stuidos Theme Park. A Disney Crew publication in 1990 provided the following description:
