This will be held at its best fitting venue, the historic stadium of Tinker Field. Mickey"s very Merry Christmas Party is a great way for you and your family to have a unique experience in Walt Disney World while celebrating Christmas. The park is open only to those guests who purchase the party tickets. There is a bit of a jam entering the park since it is only open 7pm-12am, but you can enter as early as 4pm with your party tickets to avoid the rush. We received event wristbands upon entering the two times my family attended the party and then the entire Magic Kingdom is open for your enjoyment. If you are going for the rides then you will luck out because there is no wait for majority of the rides once the party begins depending on the date of your party. At any date, your wait should not exceed 15 minutes for any given ride.
TUNIS - The China-Arab States BDS/GNSS Center, the first overseas center for China"s indigenous BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS), was officially inaugurated in Tunisia on Tuesday.
The center is established as a pilot project between China and the Tunisia-based Arab Information and Communication Technology Organization (AICTO), an Arab governmental organization under the Arab League, to promote the global application of the BDS, said Ran Chengqi, director of China Satellite Navigation Office.
"The center could serve as both a window to showcase the BDS, and a platform for promoting international exchanges and cooperation," Ran said.
Mohamed Ben Amor, secretary general of AICTO, hailed the center as a unique technology project for the Arab region and the entire world.
AICTO will "intensify its cooperation with China in the field of satellite navigation to boost technological advance and economic development in the region," Amor said.
For Khalil Amiri, Tunisia"s secretary of state for scientific research, the BeiDou pilot project will help train satellite navigation scientists and develop digital economy in Arab countries.
"We are working closely with China to effectively access and develop win-win database services via BeiDou and other satellites for various uses," Amiri said.
