Disney Magazine, Tales from the LaughingPlace, hits a home run

Tales from the LaughingPlace, the fan magazine that best covers the present and past of the Walt Disney Company’s many facets, has announced the details of their best issue yet. Volume 10 is so amazing it requires two covers to convey the excitement. The first cover is a tribute to the 15th anniversary celebrations of Disneyland Resort Paris and features Tinker Bell and the park’s icon in silhouette.
