Rosita Flying into The Tropical Hideaway in Disneyland Park

"After years of performing with the bird mobile chorus of Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, Rosita is spreading her wings and taking flight towards a solo career. You’ll find her on the river’s edge at the loading dock waiting for her boat to arrive.

Rosita is a friendly cockatoo that looks forward to meeting travelers from around the globe who are also visiting The Tropical Hideaway. Pull up a nearby seat and say hello! But beware… she has a repertoire of jokes and one-liners that would make any Jungle Cruise Skipper proud!"

Disney’s R&D team imagines a theme park filled with augmented reality costumes 
By Brady Macdonald
November 02, 2018

"Disney’s research and development arm is developing augmented reality technology that could let visitors don AR costumes of their favorite superheroes and princesses in the parks for souvenir snapshots. The findings were part of a recently-published paper by Disney Research.

The new method of AR capture overlays a “watertight” costume on a digital image of a person in 10 seconds. The process uses a combination of techniques to estimate the proportions of a body, approximate the 3D pose and match the costume to the position of the body’s joints. Imaging programs mask the body leaving the head and hands visible, paint on the costume and fill in the background image."

Humphrey the Bear Body Dryers Debut at Disney California Adventure
Nov 2, 2018

"Theme park fans who have visited Universal Orlando, Dollywood, or other destinations that feature flume or rapids rides are surely familiar with the full body dryers that are stationed near some of the wetter rides in the parks. Now it looks like Disney is getting into the game, adding pay-per-dry warmers near Grizzly River Run at Disney California Adventure. Of course, this being Disney, these dryers are themed, adding Humphrey the Bear to the new “Wilderness Warming Huts.” "
