The entire family will enjoy the fun-filled conversations with the mischievous Stitch.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland
When the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad refurbishment is complete, Rainbow Ridge Mining Town will look very much the same as it always has.

Several other items are being turned over to the Disney Archives.
Adventures by Disney Frozen Itinerary to Norway
The new itinerary guides families through an eight-day, seven-night epic adventure across the stunning lands of Norway, allowing them to follow the footsteps of the Frozen filmmakers by seeing the places, meeting the people and experiencing the beauty that inspired the setting and the look of the film.

Once Upon a Time at Tokyo Disneyland
Once Upon a Time, an entertainment program that features projection-mapping technology, will premiere at Tokyo Disneyland in 2014. This fantastic and heartwarming nighttime entertainment using projection mapping technology premieres on May 29, 2014.

Rich and full of wonder, this new entertainment transforms Cinderella Castle into a veritable “storybook come to life.”
