Disney Movie Ranch Aids Firefight

Narrowly averting disaster itself over the weekend, The Walt Disney Co.'s Golden Oak Ranch in Placerita Canyon continued to aid the firefighting effort Monday as a steady stream of helicopters scooped water from a man-made lake familiar to fans of "Little House on the Prairie."  On Saturday, in the first hours after the outbreak of the blaze in the Newhall Pass, flames crossed onto the ranch property immediately north of Placerita Canyon Road. Trees that normally obscure the movie sets from the road were obliterated, but fire crews managed to keep the fire well away from the Western movie town Walt Disney built shortly after he bought the property in 1959.

Disney to Inaugurate West Coast Cruises

Disney Cruise Line will inaugurate its first West Coast cruises out of the Port of Los Angeles next year with the 2,600-passenger Disney Magic ship, which now sails from Port Canaveral. Ostensibly, the voyages to Mexico, running May through August, are being offered to mark the 50th anniversary of Disneyland. There's another reason: to test the waters for regular land-to-sea packages tied to the Disneyland Resort. Disney also is contemplating cruises in the Mediterranean and from Hong Kong, where the company is building a Disneyland theme park set to open in 2005.
