There is some lovely classical music happening while I wait for the call to begin. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 10:54AM
The first 20 minutes will be exclusively will Alan Menken. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 10:58AM
Coolness indeed :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7585.1 #7 11:01AM
Jeffrey Epstein from D23 is speaking. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:08AM
Q: Can you talk about the Disney Songbook and what you're most looking forward to playing on Saturday? A: The great thing about Disney songs is that they all live in a context. the ones i grew up with are the ones that most stick with me, like pinocchio. like i've got no strings. your mother and mine from dumbo. it's hard to differentiate them because they were so part of the movies they were part of. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:10AM
he's now singing some of "be like you" from jungle book. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:10AM
Ooooooooooooo :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7585.1 #7 11:12AM
I think you mean 'ooo bee doo'. πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  3577.5 #36 1:37PM
what is it about the disney songbook that catches people? a: for me, it's the fact that they're tied so specifically to movie. they're not just songs that they slide in randomly. the disney songbook, each song really encapsulates the movie, a different character, a different era, a different time in a person's life. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:12AM
a: there's no cynicism in the disney songbook. there's heartfelt storytelling in these songs. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:13AM
q: what's it like to perform in front of people who eat, sleep, and breathe disney? a: it's great fun. it's a shared experience. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:14AM
a: there's a lack of cynicism with the D23 audience. they're there to love it. no one's sitting there with their arms folded. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:14AM
q: when you're writing a disney song do you feel you have to approach it differently? a: the process for me is very much the process of writing a musical. disney has been the studio that has been the most supportive of writing songs in that way. where the difference comes in in it being disney is a sense of responsibility to convey the message of the song and approach to storytelling. this is an audience that will embrace what you do and take it to heart entirely. so you kinda have to cherish the audience as you write these songs and care about them. the disney tradition is a #1 great america tradition. you don't wanna cross lines. you wanna poke fun but you don't wanna poke fun in a way that's hurtful. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:17AM
a: we're among the writers telling how are we gonna tell the story through song? we're very involved. you wanna make sure the audience is very clear what the songs are going to do. sometimes they're very tongue-in-cheek like in enchanted and aladdin...making sure the attitude is clear and the genre is clear. "oh, i get it! you're doing a maurice chavleir number but it's for a candlestick!" - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:19AM
q: is there any fanboy nervousness about performing with him? a: richard is such a nice man! he's been an extraordinarily supportive presence in my life ever since i started at disney. he was just welcoming and generous and warm. i consider richard sherman to be a dear friend and i'm really looking forward to the two of us performing. i presume we're gonna have a lot of fun. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:21AM
q: obscure disney song you're most proud of? a: i'm proud of "will the sun ever shine again?" i wrote that around 9/11 and it captured the emotion of us and the studio. i loved "the gospel truth". i think that song was a lot of fun. "if i never knew you". we lost it the first time around, we got it back. i think it's a very emotional song that i'm very proud of. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:23AM
richard is now on the line with alan!!!!! - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:24AM
q: was it difficult trying to select certain songs for the concert? a: it's always a challenge picking out just the right material. we did have some requests from our hosts. maybe the biggest challenge is which of the unknown songs so i wanna do? r: we have so many to choose from. what we try to do is a potpurri...a sampling of various things over the years. it's like looking at all my children and figuring out which one you will take on an outing. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:26AM
sherman and menken say there won't be many "little known" songs at the D23 expo concert. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:29AM
r: there's a couple of things i'm looking forward to coming to stage. jungle book is on its feet! i have a couple of other things but i don't wanna talk too much until it's a reality. a: it would be neat to see hercules. we're working on a cruise ship version of tangled. enchanted, again. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:30AM
r: when we did poppins people asked which is the song that's gonna take off? i remember my brother saying the one that's gonna take off is "stay awake" *chuckles* - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:32AM
a: during little mermaid we thought "kiss the girl" would be our single. "part of your world" we almost lost. r: i love that song. beautiful. just beautiful. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:33AM
a: we both are a part of a very exclusive club. r: we both have long histories with the disney company. i was lucky to work with the genius himself, walt disney.i always felt honored that i was working for his company...walt set a high standard for us. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:37AM
favourite song the other has done? a: supercala, but there could not have been an under the sea without a supercala. the exuberance and catchiness of it gets in your system. r: the song that gets to me more than i think "suddenly seymour" and "part of your world" gets to me. it just really does. if you just try to pick one it's impossible. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:40AM
q: what are you looking forward to at the D23 expo? r: there's a world of wonderful wonderful experiences to see at that exhibit. i know we'll be watching and looking at a lot of things. a: there'll be a lot of friends there. r: experience the joy that'll be exuberated by all the people. a: EXUBERATED??? r: you like that? a: I DO! - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:43AM
r: this man can carry on a wonderful tradition. this team: alan menken and howard ashen. a: there was a graciousness and generosity in richard that's unique in our business. it's truly unique. it's something until my dying day i will cherish. it's something you sense in his songs but it's there in the man. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:45AM
now just time with Richard Sherman!!!! - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:46AM
q: which of your songs do you feel was the most challenging to develop and why? r: everytime it's a blank page it's a mess and a challenge. i think we were trying to top a song we had done in poppins. we were trying to top a pre-song. we were told this song wouldn't work, it needed pep in it. we were trying to come up with a slogan, like a stitch in time saves nine or an apple a day keeps the doctor away. my brother's son jeff came home from school one day and said he had to take medicine. he asked "did it hurt?" and he said "no, they put the medicine on a cube of sugar" - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:49AM
R: it doesn't take much to give love and smile. Walt got it immediately. giving one's self and it doesn't take much to do that. that's why i love feed the birds. it was Walt's favourite. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:51AM
r: you write what's appropriate and every job is a challenge...when we first say animatronics coming up in something called the enchanted tiki room we came up with a little calypso number called "the tiki tiki room"...you have to write a song that sounds like them. everything is its own challenge whether it be a building, a character, or a marvelous make believe character like mary poppins. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:53AM
Richard confirms he'll be performing both attractions and movies music on Saturday! - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:54AM
"i have a good time." -richard on the secret of his longevity - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:56AM
r: 90% of the songs that we wrote for disney films were written for the characters in the screenplay, in the story. 5 or 10 percent would have been that we knew maurice chevalier would be cast and write for him...we wrote for mary poppins to sing, not for julie andrews to sing." - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 11:58AM
at the concert: first, richard will play then alan. at the end both will come together and talk about their roots and play songs that are very special to them. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 12:00PM
Richard Sherman: disney fans already know but there's a wonderful thing about being positive instead of negative. both alan and i have been blessed to be chored with writing upbeat things...with good will in them. we've both been blessed with that. there's nothing cynical in our work. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 12:03PM
Thanks everyone for following. Both men are an absolute delight who have nothing but amazing things to say about the other and who truly revel in the optimism that Disney and Disney fans love. - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 12:05PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of July 27, 2015
Crowd levels have been rising since Disneyland's official birthday on July 17th. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 70s, which is light for summer crowds. When temperatures rise, the crowd does thin out a bit (especially Annual Passholders)--and this week should be a hot one with forecasts in the 90s through Sunday. We feel that the crowd level will be similar to last year (high 70s on the Crowd Index) and the heat will keep some away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 28, 2015 9:36AM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  488.4 #403 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7116 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  383.0 #551 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  157.5 #2525 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1418 5:04PM
Yay to MouseWaiter kindness πŸ‘πŸ» - Dizkid  368.5 #579 11:40AM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4703.6 #22 12:18AM
