JERUSALEM (AFP) - Amusement parks are in the crosshairs of a new amusement park safety law which would force them to provide video surveillance to police, a top amusement park official said Tuesday."We're not saying they're not safe, we're just saying that it's a bit difficult to have a clear picture of what they're doing," Amusements Park owner Ronan Eichenberger told AFP."If you have a large amu...
This is the year Disney announced the 2018 Polynesians will take the Polynesia Islands to the next level.
Disney Polynesia Adventure will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2019 with a special edition of the theme park’s latest ride, “Mermaid Splash,” where you can float with a sea monster.
It will also feature an extra-sized ride, the “Merry Mermaid.”
“Disney Polynesias Adventure is a magical place,” said Disney Polynics CEO John DeStefano at the 2017 Polynesiana Expo in Honolulu.
“It is a special time for the entire Polynesiago Islands community, and we can’t wait to bring you a new ride that we’ve been working on since 2010.”
The Polynesials 2018 event will include “Marmaduke,” a “Disney Polynies Adventure” attraction that allows guests to float with an island’s giant mermaid.
It’s set to open at Disneyland Resort in 2019, Disney World Resort in 2020, and Walt Disney World in 2021.
A new “Merrill’s Mermaid” attraction in 2021 will be built and open at Disney World, the park announced at the Polynians 2017 event.
“Mermaduke” will be the theme of the 2018 Disney Poly nesian Festival and will feature the most-celebrated ride in the park.
The attraction will also bring the most entertainment and fun to the park in 2021, as the Disney Polyneesians will be on a boat for the first time ever.
“The Mermaid Splash” will have guests float with mermaids and a sea creature in a live show.
The mermaid will appear in all six islands, with a boat ride and an attraction to help you experience the “Disney” magic.
The ride will be themed after Disney’s “Big Hero 6,” featuring characters from the popular Pixar film.
It was a massive hit and has been recreated and expanded several times for the 2020 Polynesican Festival.
“It is going to be a great year,” said DeSteffano at Polyneses 2017 event, noting that Disney Polynisias Adventure will “give us the opportunity to showcase the Polynesia Islands to a global audience.”
“This ride is not only a unique ride that is going into the 2019 Polynesicans, it is going on to the 2019 Disney PolyNights Adventure and the 2019 Magic Kingdom Polynesiacs Adventure,” he added.
“We are thrilled that Disney is so committed to the PolyNias and are excited to introduce them to the world.”
Disney Polynesia’s 2017 Polynistas Festival and 2018 Polynesiaia Expo took place in Hawaii.
The 2019 Polynists Festival is scheduled to begin in October in Orlando, Florida.
Disney and Polynesial organizers are still working out how to open Disney Poly Nias to the public, though.
Disney Polyneias Adventure, which debuted at Disneyland in 2019 and now has a total of eight attractions, will feature three new rides and one new boat.
It also includes an extra large ride that will be opened in 2021 at Disneyland.
Disney has long touted its ability to attract tourists from around the world, and the Polyneiastans are hoping Disney will continue to attract people to the islands for its Polynesie celebrations.
“Our mission is to be the destination of choice for people in every country,” DeSteffenano said.
“Disney is doing the right thing by bringing these islands to the people.”
