    Interesting news has appeared during the Disney conference call that took place yesterday and included John Vignocchi as well as other staff of Disney Interactive and reporters from around the world. During this conference call, John Vignocchi was reported mentioning that there will be an additional Disney Infinity character variation released which will be developed as a completely re-painted Disney Infinity character. We currently do not know which character this will be, however we assume as it’s the first official variation since the Crystal characters, that it will be a special…

    Max Goof or his given name Maximilian Goof is the son of Goofy Goof, Disney’s lovable but clumsy character. Although throughout his career, Goofy’s wife was never really mentioned, and it was never said what became of her. Goofy himself started out in an obscure role as an obnoxious character named “Dippy Dawg” (The original name given before Goofy) in the 1932 short, Mickey’s Revue. It was not until the 1952 Cartoon “Father’s Day Off” that Goofy was shown with his son Max as a baby. The only brief appearances that his wife had were in the 1951 cartoons’ “Cold War” and…

    Over the years, my wife and I have been members of Disney’s amazing DVC (Disney Vacation Club), proud owners in three Disney properties. We have had many memorable vacations and have been all over “Disney’s World” But the one destination that was missing from our itinerary was Disney’s Hilton Head Resort. For many years, we have wanted to go, but other, more “Exciting” venues tempted our palate and it was always put on the back burner. This year, however we finally made the plunge so to speak and I must agree with Disney…It is a Hidden Gem! But rest assured this is not one of…

    For the past several months, I have been covering the beautiful and detailed pavilions around World Showcase, and today we’ll take a look at Canada. Our ally and neighbor to the north have some of the most beautiful scenery and is the second largest country in area after Russia. The country was first settled by the French, but in 1763, Great Britain took control. With both countries colonizing the land, both French and English is spoken. In 1867 the British North America Act united English-speaking Upper Canada (Ontario) and French-speaking Lower Canada (Quebec) with Nova Scotia and New…

King Triton is very protective of her and her six older sisters. Ariel has become unhappy with her life under the sea and is very curious about the human world above the waves. Her Father and the court musician Sebastian the crab continually warn her that contact with humans and merpeople is forbidden.

    Beloved doesn’t mind having house guests, the kind that stay over in your house for a number of days.  Me, I’m not as easy-going on this.  It isn’t that I have an issue with people, it’s just that I like my own space at times.  I like to be able to know that after a day of being with and near people all,I’m yearn for a safe place.  A safe place that is silent.  A retreat if you will. So it isn’t really a surprised that when a friend asked if he could spend a few weeks at our house while he finished dealing with a “damp” issue in his own…

However, I am finally back and I feel refreshed! Honestly I am swimming in happiness right now, I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am.

Whether you know me, or you don’t, you know (you should) know that I am in love with Disney. I have to admit, I haven’t in fact seen every one of those older films, but from the ones I have seen, I love it. I let my “Inner Five-Year-Old” out because however old I get, Disneyland will be my favourite place on earth. It was my second time visiting the Hong Kong Disney Resort but so much has changed there and with me in the last 3 or 4 years. I definitely…

    I finally got the chance to see the changes to New Orleans Square for myself. The current view (above) of Club 33 from Café Orleans vs. the previous view (below). While it's all a matter of personal taste, this particular blogger is really not crazy about this version. The original assortment of shops, restaurants, and façades seemed well executed and tastefully decorated. Due to space constraints, the additions to Club 33 have caused Imagineers to shoehorn a number of elements in that look…well, shoehorned in. This is what people often refer to as a "re-muddle." I can't help but think…

I noticed that the partitions in the waiting area had been removed.The interior is just the same; cozy, intimate, and peaceful. This time, my hand was steady enough to capture a panoramic view of the entire restaurant: Love the little gazebo detail on the far left: We were fortunate enough to get a water-side table, giving us views of the bayou: and the guests who float gently by in their Pirates of the Caribbean boats: I'd love to get…

  • Baby LeRoy

    Dave DeCaro
    25 Oct 2014 | 4:43 am
    Born May 12, 1932, Ronald Le Roy Overacker was the birth name of Baby LeRoy, who is best known as a comic foil for the bombastic W. C. Fields. His career on the silver screen began when he was less than a year old, co-starring with Maurice Chevalier in "A Bedtime Story" (1933) and ended with a cameo role as himself in "Cinema Circus" (1937). Today's photo shows Baby LeRoy with Fields in "The Old Fashioned Way" (1934), which was his second feature with the bulbous-nosed comedian ("Tillie and Gus," 1933, was the first, and "It's a Gift," 1934, was the third).Here's the vintage publicity blurb…

  • Souvenir Friday- Nightmare Before Christmas

    31 Oct 2014 | 6:58 am
    Back in 1993, I had been collecting Disney items pretty seriously for 5 years and was also a fan of Tim Burton and his films. I was beyond excited about his new film, The Nightmare Before Christmas. A fan of stop motion animation, Halloween, and Christmas, the movie was right up my alley. Hasbro made a nice collection of items and I purchased several of the large character toys. The three I own and are still mint in box are Jack, Sally and Santa. I never did find the large Oogie for sale. Although I did not purchase the small figures when originally released, I have found about half of the…
  • Halloween Potpouri

    30 Oct 2014 | 7:08 am
    A little collection of images and a drawing with a Halloween theme. The first image is a pencil sketch on onionskin paper. It looks almost like Jack Davis, but is unsigned. I do like the classic Universal monsters and the Little Orphan Annie red riding hood with blank eyes creeps me out. The second picture may not be Halloween, but it is still Halloweenish. I love the paper mache head and also the scared look of the kid being held. Final image is of this couple on roller skates. The boyfriend makes a very cute woman. But my eyes go to the wonderful cat decoration on the wall.

The jack-o'-lantern sign for the class room is great.

Next up is Randy dressed as a little skeleton standing next to a cute rabbit (or maybe chipmunk?) We will see more images of Randy tomorrow.

First up are a couple group shots of the beginning of the Halloween parade as each grade lined up. First image is marked for Corine and Randy and dated 1954. I like the sleepy tooth fairy. Based upon the other photographs in the group, this is the first grade for the school. Next up is another shot of the group. I like the lollipop kid in the front.

    After what seems like months of anticipation and early celebrating (for some), Halloween is finally here! I remember when October 31st was a fun little day, with some cheap costumes purchased at Sears (acetate clothing and plastic masks), some paper skeletons and black cats on the walls of the classroom, jack o'lantern carving, and trick-or-treating. And that was about it! Now it has grown and been commercialized to an incredible degree. Who woulda thunk it.Anyway, I wasn't sure what to post today; so I finally decided to share some photos relating to the Haunted Mansion shortly after it…

Well, the thing where I go through a batch of slides and post the less-interesting examples, getting them "out of the way" so that only gems are left. We've certainly seen plenty of very nice Instamatics from my pal "Mr. X", but the supply is dwindling, and I want to end with a bunch of especially nice ones. Just because.But that's not to say that today's offerings are junk! This is a pretty nice Mark Twain photo - it's just that we've seen so many pictures of that sternwheeler. SO many. A googol of…
  • Frontierland Scenes, March 13 1958

    28 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    There is no shortage of photos of old Castle Rock on Tom Sawyer Island. But I think that this particular image is extra super-duper nice - in large part because of that dramatic early Spring sky. It looks like a chilly rain storm is passing through, but thanks to the magical berm, there is only sunshine within the park ; it has something to do with muons, gluons, and quarks. The Mark Twain must be just hidden from view on the other side of the island, doesn't it looks like a puff of steam is blowing in our direction, slightly obscuring the very top of Castle Rock? In the distance you can…

    Today's photos are "leftuggies" - leftovers with a generous dollop of "ugh"! But they can still be tasty in their way.Here's an oddly-composed photo of the plastic House of the Future. I guess the photographer was impressed with the way the house was raised up on the central support, which was then surrounded by lovely ponds, waterfalls, and plants. Were there futuristic koi fish in the ponds? (Futuristic koi look just like regular koi, only they wear DEVO hats).It might be bright and sunny, but the Christmas tree (artificial, of course) in the house is a clue as to what time of year this…

    Is the Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room your home away from home while you’re in Disney World? If so, you might enjoy knowing there are a few ways to take a piece of the Pub back home with you! Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room We’d enjoyed seeing some of the merchandise dedicated specifically to the Rose & Crown during a tour of the Food & Wine Festival Center, but I had no idea how extensive the line was until a recent visit to the Sportsman’s Shoppe in Epcot’s UK Pavilion (just across the path from the pub itself). How long has it been there? Honestly, I don’t…

  • You Can Leave Your Hat Off

    Suzannah Mitchell
    26 Oct 2014 | 12:47 pm
    I began writing this as a caption to a photo I had posted before on Instagram, of a hat-free view of Disney’s Hollywood Studios (of course, then known as Disney-MGM Studios). My thoughts got away from me, and I had soon reached “caption limit” on Instagram, so I copied and pasted what I’d been writing into my “Notes” on my phone. I had never before written a blog post on my phone, save for very short updates about new purses being released while I may have been away from my laptop. But I was lost in the moment, and just kept typing. What follows is that…

    Suzannah Mitchell
    11 Sep 2014 | 5:06 pm
    During a visit to Walt Disney World’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground a few months back, I was filled with an epic case of nostalgia regarding what our beloved Walt Disney World was like when it opened back in 1971. I instantly wanted to write an article reflecting on my thoughts and how things were way back then. Granted, I wasn’t born then, but a handful of years later, I’d be celebrating my first visit to the Vacation Kingdom of the World. After a more recent visit to celebrate Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue’s 40th anniversary, I was reminded that I really needed…

  • Which Walt Disney World Theme Park Is Losing It’s Icon?

    Adios Contaminos! Some people love it and some people hate it but it’s no matter cause it’s going away in 2015.  Installed in 2001, Sorcerer Mickey’s 122 foot tall hat has been the backdrop for many a family’s vacation photos over the past 13 years at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I was a cast member at this very park a long, long time ago. And I remember the centerpiece of Disney’s MGM Studios (what it will always be to me) as the Chinese Theater. It was that iconic building that served as the backdrop for my memories and other guest’s memories as it…

    Ol’ Ichy, if you recall, was a country schoolmaster, dreamed up by Washington Irving. Oh, he had a way with the yarn, did Mr. Irving. If we could journey back to that remote period in American history when the City of Manhattan was but a market town, we would discover in the bosom of one of those spacious coves which indent the shores of the Hudson, the little village of Tarrytown.- Walt Disney’s “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, read by Bing Crosby; story by Erdman Penner and Winston Hibler, et al.

More than any other time of year, this is the part of the calendar when it’s easiest to find Disney.

Then I hear that Mickey and Minnie are going to replace Mrs. Claus on her float (sad face).  Of course it makes sense that Mickey and Minnie are somewhere in the Parade, but poor Mrs.

This dilemma has given way to one of my family's Disney traditions, the snack haul.

So for five years we had the privilege of being on the team of folks who helped him, er, execute his vision. In 2013 Van Dyke decided to hang up his…

(Do not fear for our immortal souls: They hold guests who are already in the park near Cosmic Ray’s until the guests at the gate have been escorted to that spot, so everyone gets the same shot at speed-walking toward the Mine Train.)…

    When seeing Howlers Peak Ropes Course, my first thought was “wow, that is really high.” Second thought was, “And you are dangling up there by only a rope? Crazy!” Howlers Peak is a new outdoor activity at Great Wolf Lodge in Washington. You can climb up to 50 feet in the air, zoom down multiple zip lines, traverse narrow rope obstacles, and in the end you’ll want to do it all over again. It may look treacherous, but Howlers Peak is a lot of fun. To participate in Howlers Peak, you first need to get suited up in a full body harness. The harness gets tightened…

    We will have several family members visiting over the next few months, which means it is prime time to share some family photos. Most of our images are either saved on our computer or phone, which can make it difficult to share unless grandma and grandpa are sitting right next to you. Even then, no one really wants to squint at a picture on a small screen. We have an Intel powered 2 in 1 laptop and an Xbox 360 in our house, which is all we needed to do a photo slideshow on our family TV. To get the photos on the big screen, I just installed the OneDrive app on our laptop and then copied our…

This means I will be spending some quality time on an airplane and the cramped seating arrangement makes it difficult to get much of anything done. Having WiFi on a plane is great and all, but I usually don’t have enough space to open my laptop.

But we have a few days together at the tail end of the trip for some family fun. Most families probably think of mouse ears and castles when you mention an Orlando trip. But even though I have visited this area countless times, the Kennedy Space Center remains one of my favorite side trips. We often see space travel depicted by Hollywood, but we rarely…

    It is safe to say that we have a high tech household. We have multiple tablets and computers. Each of us have a smartphone. We control our thermostat and sound system using WiFi. We have a lot of devices connected to the internet, which is why I couldn’t resist adding GE smart light bulbs to my cart when I saw them at The Home Depot. So the first question everyone asks – Why do you need to control your lights from your phone? Can’t you just flip a switch on the wall? And yes, you can still turn on the lights the traditional way.
