Here's the report and great photos from the Disney Parks Blog:
Saturday was quite a day at Disneyland park. For the fourth time in eight years, “Pirates” took over the park for a world premiere event that only Disney could do. The premiere of “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which benefited Boys & Girls Clubs of America, was the first-ever outdoor film premiere in 3D.
Thousands of park guests (many of whom arrived before sunrise) were able to see all the pre-screening excitement unfold as they watched the celebrity arrivals down Main Street, U.S.A., where hundreds of media from all over the world lined the black carpet to speak to the film’s stars and other special guests.
Here are just a few of the familiar faces who were in attendance.
Guests attending the premiere then made their way to New Orleans Square, where they picked up their 3D glasses and took their seats only a few steps away from Walt Disney’s original attraction that started it all.
In something of a tradition, and in true Disneyland style, the movie’s stars, including Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane and Geoffrey Rush were introduced before the film started on a specially created stage built on The Rivers of America.
So, once the film is over and the applause has begun, how do you end an incredible evening like this? With fireworks, of course!
Remember, ye too can experience the excitement of Walt Disney Pictures’ and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” when it opens in theaters May 20, 2011, in Disney Digital 3D™. Until then, “Properly warned ye be, says I. These be the last ‘friendly’ words ye’ll hear. Ye may not survive to pass this way again…”

"Our Disneyland Merchandise Events team has just confirmed that Disney Legend Jack Lindquist, the first president of Disneyland park, will appear for a special book signing on Sunday, May 1, at The Disney Gallery. This is the first time Jack has appeared for a signing inside the park since his tenure as President. Jack’s memoir, In Service To The Mouse, which debuted in December 2010, has become an instant hit among Disney fans. It recounts his many experiences over a 38-year tenure working for The Walt Disney Company and, of course, his unexpected journey to becoming the first president of Disneyland park.
This memoir is a definite must-read for any Disney fan! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. For those of you interested in picking up the book and meeting Disney Legend Jack Lindquist, he’ll be at The Disney Gallery on May 1 from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m."

"We are just a couple of months away from the official opening of The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure at Disney California Adventure park. Walt Disney Imagineers are working hard to make sure you feel transported into Ariel’s world through every detail – the water, the fish, the hair….yes, the hair! Ariel’s hair posed a particular challenge for Imagineers, one they hadn’t encountered before – how do you make hair that’s technically out of the water look like it’s floating underwater? Take a look at their progress."
