    A special preview night is being held at Disneyland for Annual Passholders to check out the new "Building a Better Hero" Iron Man Tech Experience at Disneyland's Innoventions. Part of the exhibit includes a presentation by JARVIS (Tony Stark’s artificial-intelligence computer program) who will demonstrate the full range of the Iron Man armor capabilities and then invite guests to virtually "suit up" pieces of the Mark 42 armor themselves using augmented reality technology.

    The event is not just a preview of the new exhibit that features a set from the movie but also includes access to a special after-hours Tomorrowland event that essentially includes access to everything inside the land but the subs.

    The experience is set for April 12, 2013 lasts from 11 pm - 1 am with the preview inside Innoventions starting at 6pm.

    As part of Limited Time Magic, Disneyland announced from April 8-14 Long Lost Friends week would be coming to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree. NFTYSqrt visited the Resort on Monday,to take a look at the newest Limited Time Magic event and some rarely seen characters.

    Guests can meet ten different characters which include, Cast of Peter Pan, Lilo and Stitch, Robin Hood, Tarzan, Pocahontas, Scrooge McDuck, Ludwig Von Drake, Three Little Pigs, Mulan, Hunchback of Notre Dame, and the Good Fairies from Sleeping Beauty.

    Disney Legend and Mousketeer Annette Funicello passed away today. The charming actress led a long prosperous career that started with the Disney company. She has long been known as a Disney sweet heart and the Disney Parks Blog today had a special posting about her.

    Annette Funicello was discovered by Walt Disney himself while attending an amateur program at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank when she was just 13 years old. That single meeting led to one of the most enduring associations in show business history.
