Entertainment powerhouse Disney celebrated the second anniversary of Disney+, its subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service, in November 2021. To mark the occasion, they allowed TikTok users to play along with the voices of Disney characters via a text-to-speech (TTS) feature.

Disney’s interest in synthesized voices goes beyond a marketing gimmick. On the contrary, the company’s use of synthetic voice technology – and the continuation of internal work on the subject – seems to be intensifying, probably reflecting the growing demand for dubbing on SVOD platforms.

The Mandalorian, a Star Wars television series made for Disney+, featured a synthetic voice for a young Luke Skywalker in its December 2020 season 2 finale. Voice cloning startup Respeecher provided the technology behind the voice.

Disney has once again turned to Respeecher for help with the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries, specifically for the Darth Vader character. While it’s unclear how well his dialogue was synthesized, the platform may just have enhanced voiceovers provided by 91-year-old actor James Earl Jones.

Most recently, Disney previewed a branded voice assistant for Alexa devices called “Hey Disney!” for resort guests. Although the company’s description of the “Disney Magical Companion” doesn’t delve into the “how”, its cast of 25 characters from Disney and Disney-owned franchises includes Aladdin’s Genie, voiced by the late actor Robin Williams, suggesting that synthetic voices probably play at least part of the feature.

Disney competitor Paramount has teamed up with London-based tech startup Sonantic to solve a similar challenge posed by the 2022 film Top Gun: Maverick. Actor Val Kilmer, whose voice suffered permanent damage due to throat cancer, was able to reprise his original role in the sequel using the voice Sonantic generated for him.

Text-to-speech outsourcing seems to have worked for Disney so far. However, recent job postings hint at plans to bring in experts.

Among Disney’s thousands of open roles, a May 2022 post for a VP of Localization specifies that the VP will be responsible for creating processes for new systems and technologies, such as the use of synthesized voices. , AI and machine translation (MT).

Similarly, Disney Streaming Advanced Research, an arm of Disney Streaming, is looking for a Senior Video and Voice Collaboration Design Engineer “to work on consumer-facing features that take advantage of voice interaction,” among other technologies.

The most magical place in the world, Walt Disney World covers over 25,000 acres in central Florida. Mickey Mouse’s house is not only home to the adorable characters from our childhood, but also four different theme parks: Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. For the true Disney connoisseur, the happiest visit can be accomplished by visiting each park. However, given that current restrictions mean you can’t park until the afternoon, you might be wondering how to do all four Disney World theme parks in one day – and if that’s even possible.

Known as the “Four Park Challenge,” this popular feat for Disney fans requires the ambitious guest to ride at least one attraction and eat a snack at each park. Although the current regulations, which prevent you from jumping into the parks until 2 p.m., make it a little more difficult to accomplish, I am a theme park writer who visits Walt Disney World once a month with my family. , and I’ve found some Disney Insider Tips and Tricks — as well as an itinerary — that help me get to all four parks on my visits.

Are you up to the challenge? Armed with a little faith, truth, pixie dust (and comfy shoes), you can visit all four Disney theme parks in one day. But first, you’re going to want to familiarize yourself with some key Disney lingo to help you navigate your magical day.

  • Park reservations: Walt Disney World requires advance park reservations for your visit. After purchasing your park tickets, you will need to reserve a starter park for each day of your vacation.
  • Park jump: This is Disney talking about starting at one theme park and then visiting another on the same day. At Walt Disney World, guests can park until the next park starting at 2 p.m. After that, they are free to visit the other parks.
  • Disney Genius+: This paid service replaced the old FastPass system. Disney Genie+ allows guests to reserve time slots for expedited access to select attractions beginning at 7 a.m. on the day of visit for resort guests and every 2 hours or after checking current selection.
  • Lightning Way: This is the accelerated line used to enter the attraction. You can access Lightning Lane for most attractions through Disney Genie+, but some popular attractions are extra and available a la carte.
  • Virtual Queue: Disney World’s newest attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, can be accessed for free through a virtual queue or by purchasing a la carte Lighting Lane. In the Disney mobile app, guests can enter the virtual queue at 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Disney Deluxe Resort guests will have a third opportunity to access the virtual queue at 6 p.m.
  • Advance reservations: Customers can make advance reservations up to 60 days in advance. Last-minute available tables can be reserved through a walk-in feature in the Disney app.

Now that we’ve got the basics figured out, let’s see how you and your unwavering enthusiasm can successfully complete the four park challenge. Along with a list of must-sees at each park, I’ll share a few attractions and dining offerings that you can skip if you’re pressed for time. After all, Walt Disney World is literally a world and while you won’t cover everything in a day, this program offers a good taste of the best it has to offer.

How to Do All Four Disney Theme Parks in 1 Day

12 p.m.: Yes, you are on vacation, but the preparations for your magical day begin as soon as the clock strikes midnight. And no, you won’t turn into a pumpkin. This is when customers can purchase the Disney Genie+ service. It is subject to availability, so it is highly recommended to purchase it as soon as it becomes available.

7am: It’s time to go, and those without the fastest fingers will be left behind. This is when Disney Resort guests can begin booking attractions through Disney Genie+ as well as individual Lightning Corridors. Keep in mind that the first virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is only available to guests from EPCOT.

Morning: Start your day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. After munching on a Ronto breakfast wrap from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, it’s time to knock out some of the Disney parks’ most sought-after attractions. Here, you can use the Disney Genie+ service to experience on-demand attractions, like Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, while using traditional attraction queues with ride times shorter.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios Must-See Attractions:

  • Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
  • The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Disney’s Hollywood Studios must-sees:

  • Ronto Wraps from Ronto Roasters
  • BaseLine Tap House Charcuterie and Pretzel Board
  • Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge Cobb Salad and Grapefruit Cake

Things to avoid at Disney’s Hollywood Studios:

  • Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!
  • Hollywood and dinner
  • Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano

Lunch: Florida sunshine is no joke, and since you have a long day ahead of you, it’s wise to take a moment to recharge with a sit-down lunch. Most of the table service options at Disney’s Hollywood Studios leave a lot to be desired, but there are some delicious options for the connoisseur. Use the app’s walk-in feature to reserve a table at Brown Derby Lounge or enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and great food and drink offerings at BaseLine Tap House (take the beer flight). When making your Disney Genie+ reservations, start considering late afternoon and evening attractions at the other theme parks.

1 p.m.: Join the virtual queue for EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

1:30 p.m.: With the parks opening soon, use Disney Parks Bus Transportation to visit your second park of the day, Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

2 p.m.: Start with Jambo from Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Here you can explore the bright world of Pandora – The World of Avatar, ride the Expedition Everest steel roller coaster using the single-driver lane, and munch on globally-inspired bites. After experiencing Avatar Flight on Passage using Lightning Lane, a ride on Kilimanjaro Safaris offers breathtaking views of Disney’s largest theme park and the thousands of living animals that call it home.

4 p.m.: Use the Disney Parks bus transportation to visit your third park of the day, EPCOT. Experience Disney World’s newest attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and classic attractions like Spaceship Earth and Living with the Land. Instead of booking a sit-down meal, snack (and drink!) around the World Showcase pavilions or take part in one of the park’s food and wine festivals.

7 p.m.: At EPCOT’s main entrance, board the Highway of Sky, the iconic monorail, to venture to your fourth and final park of the day, Disney’s Magic Kingdom park. Hop aboard classic attractions, like Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean, before enjoying their new nighttime show, Disney Enchantment. Snack on DOLE Whip or enjoy small plates from Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen by snagging a last-minute table through the mobile app’s walk-in feature.

Four Park Challenge Tips:

  • Stay hydrated by bringing a reusable water bottle with you. There are free water refill stations at all theme parks.
  • A cell phone charger will be your new best friend. A successful Disney day relies heavily on using the mobile app, which unfortunately drains the battery.
  • Don’t get caught up trying to ride every attraction possible. Disney is more than just rides – expand your palate with a new-to-you snack or catch a show in an air-conditioned theater.

Theme parks are usually crowded with visitors and you might find yourself in a long line, especially if the attraction you want to visit is popular. One of the best ways to bypass the queues is to splurge on tickets or passes that get you to the front of the line.

Nicole Hunter, travel blogger at Go Far Grow Close, has visited many theme parks with her four children, including Disneyland, Disney World, Universal Studios in Hollywood and Orlando, and Six Flags. Hunter recommends splurging on front row tickets — aka fast passes — whenever possible.

“Front row tickets mean that for virtually every ride in the park, you enter a separate row that takes you right to the front of the queue,” Hunter said. “Sometimes there can be a wait of around 10 minutes, but that’s nothing compared to the one to two hours you might have to wait during busy periods.”

Depending on the theme park you are visiting, you may be able to receive these passes for free if you book and stay at the park hotel. Other theme parks, like Disneyland, offer add-ons that visitors can purchase like Disney Genie, Genie+, and Lightning Lane to reduce wait times for popular attractions.

Recently, I learned that a restaurant in Connecticut offered an escape into the “magical world” of Harry Potter. Much of the restaurant has been decorated to make you feel like you’re on the set of one of the hugely popular films based on JK Rowling’s books. Before you take the day trip, check out the images below.

Do you have ‘herd’? Now that the Harry Potter theme is underway, the same restaurant has announced plans to offer a Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired outdoor patio that Jack Sparrow himself would be proud of. No reason to be “grumpy”.

Cava Restaurant Fine Dining Italian is right next door to NY State at 1615 West St. Southington CT. Every year the restaurant changes to different themes. During the holidays, for example, Cava is a winter wonderland! Today, with a wave of the wand, the Italian restaurant looks like Hogwarts.

The Cava Restaurant’s Wizard Room is now open and the Pirates of the Caribbean Rooftop Terrace makes its debut on Friday, May 20! The restaurant has 4 dining rooms in total, each with its own theme and the designs are never repeated.

Cava Restaurant spares no expense when creating each individual theme. As you’ll see in the images below, their holiday display featured 70,000 feet of Swarovski crystals! For the Harry Potter-inspired experience, you’ll need dinner reservations at their “Great Hall & Alley” or “Harry’s Wizard Room.”

Are you ready to see a restaurant like you’ve never seen before? Before you go, make your reservation HERE or call 860-628-2282. For now, keep scrolling through these amazing pictures and videos.

Look inside America’s most festively decorated restaurant!

This one-of-a-kind restaurant is just a short day trip from the Capital Region.

The Cherokee Indian Fair Committee has been meeting since the start of the new year to plan this year’s fair. One of the first items on the agenda was to choose a fair theme. The winner of this year’s fair theme was Jeannie Burgess, a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians from the Wolftown community. His entry was “Say it in Cherokee ‘Hniwi Tsalagi'”.

Burgess’s inspiration to enter this theme came from his love of the Cherokee language and his partner JC Wachacha. She wrote: “Hniwi Tsalagi” Say it in Cherokee whenever you get the chance, use any Cherokee word(s)/phrase(s) you can, day or night ! Even when you are alone. Before going to sleep, say a new word or phrase and use it throughout your daily routine. Keep doing this until you learn it. Before you know it, you’ll be putting sentences together and understanding the language.

When JC Wachacha moved here in 2005 from Snowbird, he was talking to people he thought were Cherokee speakers. They didn’t speak to him at all or respond in English or Cherokee. Now in 2022 it’s so excited to have so many people of all ages using what they know and asking for help.

“English does not translate into Cherokee word for word. Do not abandon. Do what you can to learn. Don’t be afraid to speak it or learn it. It’s our language, and it helps define who we are, and we can’t lose our language. It’s our job to learn what we can and help pass it on to the next generation.

The fair committee noted, “Congratulations Jeanne for capturing an awesome theme! The theme is an important part of the fair and is woven into various activities and events such as the parade, competitions, craft shows and community club fair booths. We encourage everyone to keep this in mind when planning the Cherokee India Fair 2022 – “Say it in Cherokee – Hniwi Tsalagi”.

LOS ANGELES — In April of last year, I walked down an empty Main Street in Disneyland with Walt Disney theme parks manager Josh D’Amaro.

The California park was a week away from opening after more than a year of closure due to Covid-19 restrictions, and cast members were hard at work putting the finishing touches in place before guests arrived.

It was a strange walk down the iconic cobblestone driveway. It was quiet, a word that has probably never been used to describe a Disney theme park. There was no background music, no commotion of children clamoring for a Mickey balloon or a soft pretzel, and no parade of colorful characters ready to pose for pictures or sign autographs.

As we followed the trolley tracks to the statue of founder Walt Disney, D’Amaro spoke of the future of the company’s parks in optimistic, yet practical terms. The road ahead, he noted, was not going to be easy. Attendance caps, mask requirements and mandatory temperature checks have been the cost of reopening. For five quarters, Disney’s parks division had posted an operating profit loss, and that would continue if the doors didn’t reopen. If D’Amaro was worried, he didn’t show it.

While much of Disney’s revenue over the past two years has gone into Disney+ and the company’s streaming efforts, resurrecting the theme park industry is key to Disney’s bottom line. . On Wednesday, the company will update shareholders on its most recent results and trends when it announces its fiscal second quarter results. Shares of Disney are down about 30% since January.

In 2019, the segment, which includes cruises and hotels, accounted for 37% of the company’s $69.6 billion in total revenue. Typically, theme parks account for the majority of that revenue.

New theme park lands such as Avengers Campus and the opening of Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser have enticed guests to visit Disney’s national entertainment centers, but other expansions, including new additions to Epcot from Disney World, are on the horizon.

A year after that ride with D’Amaro, the Disney parks have rebounded significantly. The division, which also includes Disney Experiences and Consumer Products, saw revenue exceed $7.2 billion in the fiscal first quarter, double the $3.6 billion generated in the 2019 quarter. ‘last year. The segment saw operating income climb to $2.5 billion from a loss of $100 million in the same period last year.

The company said in February that its national parks had yet to see a significant return from international travellers, who pre-pandemic accounted for 18% to 20% of guests. Additionally, not all of its international parks were open full-time in the last quarter. As Paris Disneyland turns 30, Shanghai Disneyland has temporarily closed due to local Covid spikes.

A new start

“As miserable as the pandemic has been, we had this opportunity to not only reopen those doors, but to kind of restart,” D’Amaro told CNBC last week. “You don’t have many of those opportunities in life where the world stops for you for a while.”

Technology that was put in place or updated during the pandemic remains a big part of the Disney experience. While the rides, restaurants, and character encounters are often what keep people coming through the park’s gates, shorter waits, faster service, and ambiance keep visitors coming back.

Virtual ride queues, which help maintain social distancing, and an online reservation system, which helps control crowds, aren’t going away, D’Amaro said. The company relies on data from these services to help staff in high-traffic areas of the park and redistribute traffic to less-trafficked locations.

Mobile ordering and payment, which was available before the pandemic, has become increasingly popular with customers. Before the pandemic, Disney saw single-digit adoption of its mobile ordering system. Today, about nine out of 10 customers choose to use it.

A bonus is that consumers tend to spend more money when shopping through mobile ordering and payment options than traditional cash or credit card purchases.

A recent addition to Disney’s suite of technological innovations is Genie, which is a kind of digital concierge. First announced in 2019 at Disney’s D23 Expo, the service creates personalized itineraries for customers based on the attractions they most want to see and the restaurants they want to dine at.

A paid version, called Disney Genie+, replaces the national park’s FastPass, FastPass+ and MaxPass offerings, which were discontinued during the pandemic.

For $15 per ticket per day at Walt Disney World in Florida and $20 per ticket per day at Disneyland, customers can use the new Lightning Lane at select attractions. Visitors can select one at a time to bypass the main line at a scheduled time for rides such as Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain, and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

D’Amaro said adoption rates for Genie, Genie+ and Lightning Lane exceeded expectations.

“We haven’t taken our foot off the pedal when it comes to investments,” D’Amaro said. “We’ve had the chance to look much more clearly at our future and start laying the groundwork for a future that isn’t tied to what we did before the pandemic or what we did 10 years ago. or 20 years, but which is, in fact, boundless.”

Strengthen the experience

In addition to smoother operations, Disney has provided guests with new places to explore inside and beside its parks over the past year.

Avengers Campus opened in June 2021. The new area, located in Disneyland’s California Adventure theme park, replaced A Bug’s Land. It includes the pre-existing Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission: Breakout ride at the edge of Hollywood Land.

It’s also home to a new Spider-Man attraction, a food spot called the Pym Test Kitchen, and a portal to Doctor Strange’s Sanctuary. At its center is the Avengers Compound, home of Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes. On the rooftop launch pad sits a scale quinjet that lights up and revs its engines for guests.

Avengers Campus is a popular destination for Disneyland guests to see and interact with their favorite heroes, anti-heroes and villains from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

And for theme park junkies looking for more than just a photo op, Disney recently opened its new Star Wars experience, the Galactic Starcruiser. Billed as an “immersive adventure,” the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser blends elements of the company’s resorts, cruise lines, and theme parks into a 48-hour space adventure.

Ouannii, a Rodian musician, is aboard the Halcyon with galactic superstar Gaya.

The experience comes with a hefty price tag — around $1,200 per person per day — but has been generally well received by customers since it opened in March.

The upcoming fiscal second quarter results will include the first month of these trips and give shareholders a glimpse of what they can expect in terms of revenue from this attraction in the future. The two land-based Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge expansions cost around $2 billion, but it’s unclear how much Disney has invested in other recent improvements to its parks.

The next expansion of the Disney park will take place at the end of May. Xandar’s Wonderland Pavilion at Disney World’s Epcot is the newest piece of Disney’s massive transformation of the nearly 40-year-old park, which has long been known for its unique food offerings and annual festivals.

The former Energy Universe Pavilion is now the Xandar Marvel Pavilion, home to Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

disney

Xandar’s Wonderland Pavilion is based on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” and features a new rollercoaster: Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

“There’s a lot going on here at Epcot,” Epcot vice president Kartika Rodriguez told CNBC in February during a media tour of the new attraction.

Already, Epcot has expanded its French pavilion to include Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, a trackless ride that takes guests through a Pixar version of France. It also added a new space-themed restaurant called Space 220, which takes diners hundreds of miles above the park to eat among the stars. There’s yet to come a “Moana”-inspired guided attraction called Journey of Water.

“I think our [Walt Disney Imagineering] partners have found is a really unique way to ensure Epcot stays true to what it’s about…it’s about growing, it’s about being connected,” Rodriguez said. “And that’s what Epcot is, dreaming about the world of tomorrow.”

Refreshing its parks is a way for Disney to keep its guests excited to return and elevate its stories and experiences. D’Amaro said the company is far from done innovating.

The company is set to launch its newest cruise ship, the Disney Wish, this summer and is working to complete the Tron: Lightcycle Run roller coaster at Magic Kingdom.

However, perhaps more exciting is the promise of something new on the horizon. Disney’s Galactic Starcruiser is a model that could easily be applied to other company-owned franchises, and innovations in animatronics and AI could bring fan-favorite characters young and old to the parks.

No one can deny that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has affected just about every aspect of our life as we know it. From supply chain issues to inflation, everyone in the world has felt these changes in one way or another. Guests visiting theme parks have also felt a lot of these changes, with mask mandates and social distancing rules seeming to constantly change.

As of now, Disneyland and Walt Disney World have both completely dropped their mask requirements, with Universal Studios following suit. Customers have also noticed price increases in certain areas of the theme parks, including merchandise, tickets and, of course, food. However, Disney posted record profits, citing new experiences and options like Disney Genie as a way for the company to get back on track.

SeaWorld, the nautical-themed amusement park in Orlando, Florida, recently revealed its first quarter results with shocking numbers, as seen in the tweet below from journalist Ashley Carter (@AshleyLCarter1):

SeaWorld released its Q1 2022 results, a few takeaways: – Total revenue was $271 million, an increase of $99 million from Q1 2021 – Attendance was 3.4 million visitors, up 54% from the first quarter of 2021 – The company said international and group visits are improving but not back to pre-pandemic levels

As you can see, the resort increased its total revenue by $99 million compared to the first quarter of 2021. Attendance also increased by more than 50%. We recently covered SeaWorld adding a small supplement to food and snacks, citing this as a way to deal with “increasing operating costs”. We don’t know how this decision affected these numbers.

One reason attendance may be up could be due to the resort’s newest roller coaster, Ice Breaker.

Ice Breaker is the newest coaster built at SeaWorld Orlando; its bright colors attract guests and fill a hole in the park, which previously did no favors. Ice Breaker was announced to be built in 2019, but due to the pandemic, the roller coaster’s opening date was severely pushed back. The $8.2 million attraction ascends and descends 93 feet and reaches a speed of 52 miles per hour. While these stats don’t really give off the “creepy” vibe, the coaster packs a lot more punch than it looks.

SeaWorld Orlando describes the attraction as follows:

Named after the icy peaks of the Arctic, Ice Breaker will feature four airtime-filled launches, both backwards and forwards, culminating in an inverted launch into the steepest vertical drop in the beyond Florida – a 93 foot high point with an angle of 100 degrees. The thrills continue as riders fly over a near-vertical tophat maneuver in a series of thrilling twists, turns and airtime hills. The brand new roller coaster will be located in front of Wild Arctic and will open on February 18, 2022.

SeaWorld had recently made a $3.4 billion offer to take over Cedar Fair, but that offer was rejected.

First introduced in 1982, Disney’s (SAY) – Get The Walt Disney Company Report Epcot has never been about crazy roller coaster rides.

Instead, Epcot has always had a more educational flair.

Once short for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (but not anymore), the park was designed by Walt Disney as a large-scale world’s fair (and a real community).
