DISNEYLAND TO UNVEIL 'FANTASMIC!' ATTRACTION, MAY 13-14

 DISNEYLAND TO UNVEIL 'FANTASMIC!' ATTRACTION, MAY 13-14
 WHAT: Disneyland unveils its spectacular new "Fantasmic!"
 attraction amidst a two-day celebration of events.
 SCHEDULE:
 Wednesday, May 13:
 9:15 a.m. Meet Max! Goofy's son, Max, makes his Disneyland
 debut at the Main Street Train Station.
 10:30 a.m. Disneyland celebrates the 25th anniversary of the
 "Pirates of the Caribbean" attraction by showcasing
 a rededication ceremony. Taking part in the ceremony
 will be veteran Disney animators Marc Davis (one of
 Walt Disney's "nine old men") and Xavier "X" Atencio
 (one of the composers of the "Yo-Ho" song). The
 rededication ceremony will take place at the entrance
 to the "Pirates of the Caribbean" attraction.
 Noon Beauty and the Beast Live! Michael Eisner will host
 the dedication of Disneyland's new stage production
 "Beauty and the Beast Live!" -- a production based on
 the Academy Award-winning film. A question-and-answer
 session with Robby Benson (voice of Beast), Jesse Corti
 (voice of LeFou), Paige O'Hara (voice of Belle) and
 Bob McTyre, vice president of entertainment, will
 immediately follow the show.
 8:30 p.m. Fantasmic! "Dreadication" ceremony will be hosted by
 Michael Eisner at the Rivers of America in Frontierland.
 The premiere performance of Fantasmic! will immediately
 follow the "Dreadication" ceremony.
 Fantasmic! is a 22-minute extravaganza combining
 spectacular magic, music, live performers and sensational
 special effects that literally lights fires along the
 Rivers of America in Frontierland. It is a stirring tale
 of fantasy and fright that takes shape when Mickey Mouse
 exercises his incredible imagination. Fantasmic!
 utilizes a brand-new technology involving three giant
 mist screens of such density that film images can
 actually be projected upon them.
 Photo and video advisory: Because of the "dark" nature
 of the show, photographers are advised to pick up one of
 Disneyland's "helpful hints" brochures at the Media
 Village.
 Thursday, May 14:
 8 a.m. "Behind the Scenes" of Fantasmic! A demonstration of
 Fantasmic! technology will be hosted by McTyre,
 vice president of entertainment.
 8:45 a.m. Toontown breakfast and construction site tour.
 Imagineers from Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale,
 Calif., will meet with media to present the latest on
 Mickey's Toontown, which will be opening at Disneyland
 in 1993. A construction site tour will immediately
 follow the breakfast.
