Walt Disney’s Vacation Home Is For Sale

Walt Disney built his Palm Springs vacation home a few years before he died in 1966

When Roy and Walt Disney co-founded the Walt Disney Company in 1920, they had dreams of large success, but likely could not have fathomed becoming the world leader in fantasy, cartoon characters and family film. Neither would they have imagined continuing that leadership position in their artistic niche so long after their deaths. Although Roy was the silent, shy partner who addressed the financial end, Walt was the creative part of the duo and during his lifetime accrued 26 Academy Awards (still a record) for the company. Though Walt was the youngest brother, he died at the age of 65 in 1966. Roy was 73 at the time and postponed his retirement in order to open Disney World, which he later named Walt Disney World in honor of his brother. The new park transformed Orlando from a sleepy military and citrus town to America’s most popular family resort vacation destination with over 50 million visitors in 2016.

Only three years before his death, Walt Disney and his wife, Lillian, built a vacation home in Palm Springs as a getaway from Walt’s hectic work schedule and to enjoy their later years. The home stayed in the Disney family until 2015 and the new owners retained the charm and whimsy of the home created by this imaginative couple.

At 2,443 square feet, the four-bedroom, four-bath home has the clean lines of mid-century design, private in the front with cheerful red double entry doors and wide open to the outdoors in the back with views of the pool, raised spa, mountains and the Indian Canyons Golf Resort. As with most of the modernist homes of Palm Springs, the focus was on the enjoyment of outdoor living, relaxing and entertaining.

Furnished in period furnishings with an Art Deco flair, bold flushes of color against a neutral background is indicative of Walt’s colorful creations on film. Little surprises are found in various locations around the house and iconic Disney sayings are playfully written in the backs of closets challenging residents not to enjoy the unexpected chuckle. The listing agents are Klint Watkins and Ryan Cummings of HK Lane, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. The home is priced at $899,000.

Disney Ranked Most Intimate Brand among Millennials, According to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2017 Report

Disney Ranked Most Intimate Brand among Millennials, According to MBLM's Brand Intimacy 2017 Report

Disney Ranked Most Intimate Brand among Millennials, According to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2017 Report

Disney ranked the most intimate brand among millennials, according to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2017 Report, which is the largest study of brands based on emotions. Brand intimacy is defined as a new paradigm that leverages and strengthens the emotional bonds between a person and a brand.

“Disney resonates with this age group because they grew up with the brand. It has kept up with their changing interests and now includes popular franchises like Star Wars and Marvel. Disney is also a mainstay for young families,” stated Mario Natarelli, MBLM’s managing partner. “Interestingly, five out of the top 10 brands for millennials are in the media & entertainment industry, which we believe reflects the prevailing mood of escapism and the need for respite.”

Following Disney, Amazon and Netflix ranked as the second and third most intimate brands for millennials. Comparatively, in MBLM’s 2015 report, Amazon placed first, followed by Apple and PlayStation.

The other brands that round out the top 10 are: Apple, Nintendo, Target, Chevrolet, Xbox, Google and YouTube.

The Brand Intimacy 2017 Report analyzes the responses of 6,000 consumers and 54,000 brand evaluations in the U.S., Mexico and UAE. The full report will be released on January 18, 2017.

Disney Magic of Storytelling Campaign 2017

Today, Disney and ABC announced it will donate up to one million books to First Book, a nonprofit that provides new books to educators and organizations serving children from low-income families, during its fifth annual Magic of Storytelling campaign from now through March 31.

The Magic of Storytelling campaign aims to inspire families’ imaginations, cultivate a lifelong love of reading in kids, and bring books to underserved communities across the country. Over the past 16 years, Disney has donated 57 million books to First Book. Together with First Book, Disney Publishing Worldwide and Disney|ABC Television Group are committed to placing up to one million more books in the hands of children in need across the country.

“We are so proud to have donated more than 57 million books through our long-standing collaboration with Disney,” said Kyle Zimmer, president and CEO of First Book. “Each year, the excitement around the Magic of Storytelling campaign grows, inspiring millions of individuals to help us bring much-needed new books to children in need.”

As part of the Magic of Storytelling campaign, families are encouraged to put everything else down, pick up a book, and read independently or together during the second annual nationwide Disney Reads Day on February 4. Families can do this at home by taking time to read their favorite books together, or visit a participating Disney Store, Barnes & Noble, or other retail location for story-time, themed activities, and giveaways.

From now through March 31, Disney book donations (up to a total of one million donations) can be activated through various ways:

  • One for One Book Donation: Disney will donate one book to First Book for every eligible Disney book purchased at a Disney Store or participating retailer during that store’s participation window. (A list of eligible Disney books and participating retailers are available at magicofstorytelling.com.)

  • Disney Story Central: Users of Disney’s digital reading platform can download digital books designed for parents and children to read together. Disney will donate one book to First Book for every book read in the app.

A full list of participating Disney Store and retailer locations is available at magicofstorytelling.com.

“For more than 80 years, Disney books have brought children and parents together, sparking imaginations and inspiring dreams,” said Andrew Sugerman, executive vice president, content and media, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “We are thrilled to be part of a program that encourages a love of reading and makes these stories available to as many people as possible. We’re honored to continue our work with First Book to bring the Magic of Storytelling to kids in need around the country.”

Kevin Brockman, Executive Vice President, Global Communications, Disney|ABC Television Group added, “Storytelling and imagination are central to the entertainment we deliver to our viewers every day. We’re thrilled to celebrate our 16 year association with First Book through this campaign and excited to mobilize our multiple platforms to inspire kids and families to expand their imaginations and celebrate the importance of reading and storytelling.”

The Magic of Storytelling campaign comes to life across Disney|ABC’s extensive network of broadcast and digital platforms including MagicOfStorytelling.com, a website with activities and resources to encourage reading and shared reading experiences. Fans can also engage with Magic of Storytelling content on Disney’s network of social medial channels and digital publishing brands like Oh My Disney, Disney Style, Disney Family and Babble.

The campaign launches with a PSA voiced by Emma Watson, star of The Walt Disney Studios upcoming film “Beauty and the Beast,” coming to theaters on March 17. In the PSA, Watson highlights the impact of books on children. Click here to view the PSA.

Inspired by the film’s iconic themes of reading, discovery and imagination, the PSA will be shared with audiences across Disney including ABC affiliate stations, ABC Television Network, Freeform, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, Disney Store, Disney Cruise Line and Disney Resorts’ TVs, the ABC app, and Disney’s digital network of publishing brands including Oh My Disney and Babble. Additionally, each local ABC-owned station will donate 5,000 books to their local communities through schools and organizations in their respective markets.

Additionally, for the first time, The Walt Disney Company is extending the Magic of Storytelling campaign initiative to the educator community through focused outreach to schools and libraries, providing meaningful resources to facilitate in-class and in-home shared reading experiences. Resources include lesson plans, reading activities, and more.

Jim Henson Company Hosts, “Puppets For Puppetry” Fundraiser to Honor The Esteemed Puppeteer Dave Goelz on September 24, 2016

Jim Henson Company Hosts, Puppets for Puppetry Fundraiser with Host Dave Goelz

Jim Henson Company Hosts, Puppets for Puppetry Fundraiser with Host Dave Goelz

The Jim Henson Company is hosting “Puppets for Puppetry,” a fundraiser for The Center for Puppetry Arts honoring the esteemed puppeteer Dave Goelz, best known to fans around the world as the performer of iconic puppet characters like The Great Gonzo, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Boober Fraggle, Traveling Matt, and many more. The event will be held at The Jim Henson Company’s historic Hollywood studio lot on September 24, 2016 – a doubly auspicious date for Henson friends and fans as it would have been Jim Henson’s 80th birthday. The unique live performance will be led by Tony Award-nominee John Tartaglia (Avenue Q) and promises to be a musical and fun evening.

The event benefits The Center for Puppetry Arts, whose mission is to inspire imagination, education and community through the global art of puppetry. The Atlanta-based nonprofit is the nation’s largest and only resource of its kind, featuring a worldwide puppetry collection, vibrant theatre spaces, and an education department that develops puppetry talent through workshops and performances. The Center for Puppetry Arts also uses the latest technology to offer its award-winning Distance Learning programs for PreK-adult through videoconferencing and recorded content.  The arts-infused workshops and interactive puppet performances are conducted via videoconferencing and are tailored to specific classroom topics and curriculum. The programs complement national curriculum standards in language arts, social studies, science, math and other areas and serve schools nationwide.

The Center for Puppetry Arts recently expanded to include a new gallery housing the Jim Henson Collection and the Worlds of Puppetry Global Collection. These two permanent exhibits together represent the most definitive display of both Henson puppets and other puppetry traditions from around the world.

“The Center for Puppetry Arts is the only location of its kind in the U.S., and is particularly special to me and the entire Henson family,” said Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company. “My father dedicated the Center for Puppetry Arts at its opening, and he continued to support both the Center and the art forms of adult and traditional puppetry throughout his years of success with the Muppets.”

“The Center for Puppetry Arts is extremely happy to have The Jim Henson Company’s continued support which allows us to bring programs that educate and inspire imagination to communities across the country,” said Vincent Anthony, the Barbara and Bill Wylly Executive Director at the Center for Puppetry Arts.

Dave Goelz is an inspiring puppeteer and has brought some of the world’s most beloved characters to life,” said John Tartaglia.  “From a ‘whatever’ who eats rubber tires, to an explorer fascinated by ‘silly creatures,’ Dave’s characters are full of joy and have a love of playfulness.  We are planning an exciting performance to honor his incredible contribution to the art of puppetry.”

“Puppets for Puppetry” is hosted by The Jim Henson Company with support from The Muppet Studio. Individual tickets start at $250 with tables and sponsorship packages beginning at $7,500.  For additional information please visit: http://www.puppetsforpuppetry.eventbrite.com/

Acts Retirement-Life Communities Featured in Nationally Acclaimed Book “The Disney Way” on Companies with Successful Workplace Cultures

Acts Retirement-Life Communities Featured in Nationally Acclaimed Book "The Disney Way" on Companies with Successful Workplace Cultures

Acts Retirement-Life Communities Featured in Nationally Acclaimed Book “The Disney Way” on Companies with Successful Workplace Cultures

Dream, Believe, Dare, Do. Through four simple words, this carefully crafted credo has led The Walt Disney Company to prosperity and immeasurable success. In the nationally acclaimed book The Disney Way, Disney corporate culture experts Bill Capodagli and Lynn Jackson explore how companies large and small can emulate Disney and bring greater vision and innovation to their business processes, create a customer-centered culture and achieve success beyond their highest expectations.

Among the companies featured in the just released third edition of The Disney Way is Acts Retirement-Life Communities, a senior living organization headquartered in suburban Philadelphia. According to the authors, the “loving-kindness” culture that the Acts leaders have implemented into their approach to business management has helped propel the not-for-profit organization to reach the upper echelon of senior living organizations in America.

“I think of Acts as a perfect example of an organization that has masterfully adopted the customer centric principles of Disney in their own unique way,” said co-author Bill Capodagli. “With loving-kindness as its foundation, Acts has created an enviable model for senior living that has helped the organization achieve amazing results with residents and employees.”

Since its founding, Acts has experienced steady growth to become one of the largest senior living organizations in the United States with 21 retirement communities that serve more than 8,600 seniors and employ more than 6,000 people in eight states. The application of loving-kindness is deeply embedded in the Acts culture and is attributed to helping the organization achieve a 98% resident satisfaction, a company record wait list of people planning to move into its communities, and a dedicated staff who embrace the company culture and consistently rate Acts as a top workplace.

“The Acts culture of loving-kindness is our ongoing commitment to excellence and serves as the foundation for our actions, our attitudes, and our values,” said Acts CEO Mark Vanderbeck. “It’s a daily practice of striving to create an atmosphere where every individual is valued and treated with fairness, sensitivity, dignity, honesty and respect. Much like the Disney Way, the application of loving-kindness sets a standard for excellence in retirement-life services that is used to lift our entire organization to greater heights.”

The third edition of The Disney Way, by Bill Capodagli and Lynn Jackson, is available in bookstores and online.

But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Marisa Tomei, Tom Holland, Frank Grillo and Martin Freeman, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.
