Lately I've been enjoying watching the Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Black & White Vol. 2. Even though today's Mickey is great, I really love the Mickey of the 1930's. The simple black dot eyes just appeal to me (and allowed the animators to do so much more with his brow), and the subjects
I'm a big fan of "fan-made" video of the Disney parks. When I'm getting excited about an upcoming trip, there's nothing I like better than watching footage of the shows and attractions I'll be seeing soon!

One interesting aspect of visiting Tokyo Disneyland is that all of the "face characters" (the ones with exposed faces, such as the Disney princesses) are non-Asian, to keep an authentic look. However, they are all fluent in Japanese and probably spend all day speaking it to Tokyo Disneyland guests. When I visited Tokyo Disneyland with
If you visit the Disney parks as often as I do, you know that character meals are a lot of fun! For those who don't know, at a character meal, various Disney characters make their way around the restaurant while you eat, making sure to stop by each table and give everyone hugs and photo
