Celebrating at Disneyland; not so much at Freestyle Music Park
Written by Robert Niles
Since I was at Universal today for its event, particle physics and medical science prevented me from also being down at Disneyland for today's Lakers/Kobe Bryant victory parade. But Disney's PR team dutifully sent along a photo:Tweet
Disneyland also picked from the crowd a father and son wearing Kobe jerseys to ride the Matterhorn with the Lakers' star. No one with a daughter selected, though. Go figure. /snark
BTW, does anyone have a photo of Disney World president Meg Crofton in her Lakers-themed Mickey ears, following the bet?
In more depressing (unless you're an Orlando Magic fan) but not unexpected news, attendance is not meeting the new owners' forecasts at the renamed Freestyle Music Park in Myrtle Beach, S.C. A first-year attendance figure under 1 million helped doom the former Hard Rock Park to bankruptcy, and it appears that the new owners aren't doing much better in attracting people to this park.
