Disney land in brief


Disneyland opened to a star-studded fanfare on July 17th, 1955. The opening of "the Happiest Place on Earth" was a media event that, even as late as the 1990's, has rarely been exceeded for glitz, glamour, excitement, and drama. Walt Elias Disney himself dedicated the park and each of the individual "lands" within it's bermed boundaries. Main Street USA, Adventureland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, and Tomorrow land made up the lineup at that time. New Orleans Square, Critter Country (formerly Bear Country), and Toon town have since been added. Each of the original lands has been altered -and had new attractions added -- over the years Data about Walt Disney

Walt Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1901. When he was young his family moved to a farm in Missouri. As a child he grew close to his older brother, Roy. Roy was the only person who lived through the same awful nightmare that he did. Their father beat them on a regular basis; all it took was not living up to his expectations. When Walt was 16 years old, he decided he wanted to study art, so he went back to Chicago. At the age of 19, he started making cartoon ads to be shown in movie theaters. He didn't earn very much money, but he loved what he did. When he turned 22, he moved to Los Angeles. Here he drew cartoons in his garage. He was absolutely fascinated by these. A cartoon is made by drawing many pictures and showing them one after another so quickly that the pictures become animated, or seem to move. He liked to make the characters do funny things. When he was 27, he created Mickey Mouse. In his studio, mice would gather in the garbage can next to his desk. He decided to keep them for his pets. He got little cages for three of them and they lived on top of his desk. He had a particular favorite who inspired the cartoon character Mickey Mouse. During the next ten years, Walt Disney invented Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto, and many more cartoon characters that are famous to this day. Many people, children and adults alike, went to movie theaters to watch his short cartoons. This was just the beginning of his success!

Interpersonal skills for Walt Disney to realize his dream

Walt Disney had a vision. It was a vision of a place where children and parents could have fun together. The more Walt dreamed of a "magical park," the more imaginative and elaborate it became

The original plans for the park were on 8 acres next to the Burbank studios where his employees and families could go to relax. Although, World War II put those plans on hold. During the war, Walt had time to come up with new ideas, and creations for his magical park. It was soon clear that 8 acres wouldn't be enough Finally in 1953, he had the Stanford Research Institute conduct a survey for a 100-acre site, outside of Los Angeles. He needed space to build rivers, waterfalls, and mountains; he would have flying elephants and giant teacups;a fairy-tale castle, moon rockets, and a scenic railway; all inside a magic kingdom he called "Disneyland." Location was a top priority. The property would have to be within the Los Angeles metropolitan area, and accessible by freeway. It would also have to be affordable: Walt's pockets were only so deep The search for the best spot finally ended in the rural Anaheim, California with a purchase of a 160-acre orange grove near the junction of the Santa Ana Freeway (I-5) and Harbor Boulevard. Although, Disneyland was expensive. Walt once said "I could never convince the financiers that Disneyland was feasible, because dreams offer too little collateral." So Walt turned to Television for his financial support. "Walt Disney's Disneyland" television series offered a glimpse of the future project. This brought the idea of Disneyland into reality for Walt and the American people. Construction for Disneyland began on July 21, 1954, a meager 12 months before the park was scheduled to open. From that day forward Walt Disney's life would never be the same. Some 160-acres of citrus trees had been cleared and 15 houses moved to make room for the park. The area was in semi-rural Orange County, near a freeway that would eventually stretch from San Diego to Vancouver. When the real designing came around, Walt was met with inevitable questions. How do you make believable wild animals, that aren't real? How do you make a Mississippi paddle ship? How do you go about building a huge castle in the middle of Anaheim, California? So, Walt Disney looked to his movie studio staff for the answers. The design of Disneyland was something never done before. What I got from reading: What I got from reading the Disneyland case for the way to recruit Disney land staff How employee looks like white males and females generally in early twenties without facial blemish and radiation good health The new employee enroll to Disney land university were undergo training program how to speak , treat with customers even the Disney expirations as park not amusement center Class room covers question ride operation will face from customer Motivation level and pep talks exhort employees to be happy and cheerful while on stage

Walt Disney Logo Animation is the transformation of still images turned into motion by constantly parading the stills, one after another.

Through creativity, dedication and technology, this form of art can be advanced to great limits and even beyond imagination. Co-founded by Walter Elias Disney, the Walt Disney Company today has branched out to various entertainment studios, theme parks, products and other media productions with an annual revenue of approximately US $30 billion. The Walt Disney logo, like the company, has served as a beacon for decent family entertainment and worldwide recognition. The Walt Disney logo is a stylized version of the founders signature that signifies the brand name and promises secure, cheerful and quality American mainstream entertainment. Other than the regular logo, the company uses different logos on its different products. A castle on a blue background version of the Walt Disney logo is used for the movie releases and as the curtain-

raiser to its films.

Similarly, the Walt Disney signature with World added to it is used for the companys resorts "Walt Disney World Resort", a Mickeys head is adopted for the companys Mickey Mouse Club and Studios was added to the Walt Disney logo signifying Disney Studios around the world. The original Walt Disney logo, to a large extent, has retained its uniqueness, however, over the time, different animations and styles were introduced in the Walt Disney logo to complement the entertainment quality and the technological breakthroughs of the era. No doubt, the Walt Disney logo has branded the company.

Negative points Unchanged visual merchandising One of the negative points is that the visual merchandising is not changed regularly; the window display is the same for many years. In this way, customers will feel boring because no stimulation and attraction for them.

Stores are lack of theme decoration Monotonous decoration in every Disney store fails to attract customers. Because there is no excitement, customers tend to stay in the store for short time. Passive staffs attitude Staff are seldom greet and farewell customers. Although they answer enquires from customers, few of them introduce products and new information to customers proactively. Therefore, they fail to identify customers needs Competition with the Disney Store in the theme park After the establishment of theme park, the competitive force of Disney store might not as large as the stores in the park. Customers might prefer to buy souvenirs in the park rather than the outlets. Decreasing birth rate The trends of late marriage and family planning result in shrinking the market size of Disney store, and gradually lower the demand for Disney products.
