Disneyland 60th Anniversary Apps And More Media Tidbits, New Rehearsal Video

Hey All! Just a few things on the Disneyland 60th Anniversary Special. As you know from previous posts, Derek is hosting and dancing. Note that not only will the show air on ABC on February 21st, but, we’ll also be able to interact with the performances with a Disney Applause app. The mobile app will allow fans to see “a second-screen, interactive experience that will sync directly to the broadcast’s major musical segments, displaying colorful light shows and original content on viewers’ phones. Their display will be in harmony with the illuminated accessories worn by guests and elaborate lighting design during the performances.” You can read more at Inside The Magic. Below are some more details from Stitch Kingdom (a link we posted previously) on the app and another app called the “Jaunt VR app” that will have a 360 degree view.

Using Walt Disney Imagineering’s ‘Made with Magic’ technology, Applause delivers a second screen, interactive experience that will sync directly to the broadcast’s major musical segments, displaying colorful light shows and original content on viewers’ phones. Their display will be in harmony with the illuminated accessories worn by guests and elaborate lighting design during the performance. Fans will also have a rare opportunity to experience this once-in-a-lifetime performance via virtual reality. Through the use of the Jaunt VR app, fans will join in the celebration as they are instantly transported to Sleeping Beauty Castle for the musical superstar’s concert and to Main Street, U.S.A. for a very special dance routine. A 360-degree view of the VR elements will also be available on ABC.com.

Also, check out Disney ABC when you get time as they have all kinds of “behind the scenes” photos and more at here. Keep an eye on that link as they may post more.

Also, below is a video from Derek’s snapchat today of rehearsals. Too fun!

Getting more excited about this all the time!! #derekhough #disneyland60

Derek Hough Gets Goofy in Rehearsal

Oh dear. As I said on instagram, this is just all kinds of wrong. :-) You don’t do this to such a handsome guy. Both handsome guys, including Travis Wall. From Derek’s snapchat by way of the PDH instagram account…I assume this is for the Disneyland 60 thing, but one never knows with Derek.

Derek Hough: The Week in Twitter – January 24, 2015

We’re in the drought days of winter where we have few Derek photos, but I have a feeling it won’t last long and I’ll be regretting even saying anything. :-) Is it too late to knock wood??

Thanks to Linz for the heads up on this video. To read a review and how to order Kym’s new book at a discount price, see PureDWTS.com.
