    It was an unusual day for the Disneyland Resort. First, it was the final day of the Tinker Bell Half Marathon which kicked off this morning near Paradise Pier Hotel. Second, it unseasonably warm after a very cold spell the week prior. Both of these factors ended up leading to Disneyland Park extending its hours for the day to accommodate the increased demand as a result of the perfect weather and extra people in the area.

    Other than that, the off-season continues at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure with refurbishment and construction projects in Frontierland and Fantasyland plus a full-look at the recently updated Blue Sky Cellar taking a look at the Fantasy Faire.

    There's been speculation for quite some time about WHICH WITCH IS WHICH in Disney's upcoming OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL. Marketing up to this point has been very coy about definitively pointing to either Rachel Weisz or Mila Kunis as the famed squeaky voiced badie that terrorizes the land of Oz.

    A new video clip released recently by Disney shows what appears to be Rachel Weisz's standing next to the wicked witch with fireworks blasting over the Emerald City. Neither appears to be Michelle Williams so it seems a good indication that Mila Kunis will be doning green skin for at least part of her role in the film.

    OZ THE GREAT & POWERFUL lands in theaters March 8, 2013.
