Disney Theme Parks and Entertainment Receives Several Awards For Outstanding Achievements
The accolades just keep pouring in for the Walt Disney Company! Here at MickeyBlog, we reported earlier in the week that U.S. News & World Report honored Disney Cruise Line with two prestigious awards. Today, we are just receiving word that the Themed Entertainment Associated (TEA) announced that Nemo & Friends SeaRide at Tokyo DisneySea Park will receive a Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement.
On Nemo & Friends SeaRider, guests board a submersible that “shrinks” to the size of a fish to explore the wondrous world of marine life from the same point of you as Nemo, Dory and friends.
The Thea Awards were created by the TEA in 1194 to recognize outstanding achievement and talent within the themed entertainment industry. The 25th Thea Awards Gala is slated to be held on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Disneyland Hotel. The actual awards will be presented at this time.
But when it comes to awards, that’s not all! Just last night the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) honored Disney Parks Live Entertainment and the Disney Merchandise team with Brass Ring Awards. The Beauty and the Beast Production aboard the Disney Dream took home honors as the Best Theatrical Production.
The Celebrate! Tokyo Disneyland was awarded IAAPA as the most Creative Musical Spectacular.
Disney Merchandise was awarded Best Hard Good Item for the Light Up Slinky Dog.
The Brass Ring Awards by IAAPA are set up to honor excellence in food and beverage, games and retail, human resources, live entertainment, marketing, new products and exhibits!
Bob Weis, President of Walt Disney Imagineering had this to say of these tremendous accolades, ” I am so proud of the Imagineers who created and brought to life Nemo & Friends SeaRider at Tokyo DisneySea; our Live Entertainment teams that delivered two more award-winning shows – an amazing nighttime spectacular honoring the 35th anniversary of Tokyo Disneyland, and an innovative and powerful theatrical performance of Beauty and the Beast aboard the Disney Dream cruise ship; and the merchandise team who helped bring Slinky Dog to life in an entirely new way as a light-up toy.”
