Classic Chip ‘n’ Dale Holiday Shorts

It’s the holiday season and the time to whip out those good old Disney holiday animated shorts. While there are many great shorts like 1932’s “Mickey’s Good Deed” and its iconic depression-era tale of selfless giving, perhaps none are as festive and fun as the classic Chip ‘n’ Dale films. I personally have three favorites… Read More »Classic Chip ‘n’ Dale Holiday Shorts

Hurricane Katrina passes Mickey by

You can never really tell what a hurricane will do, it creates its own weather patterns. But for now, it appears that Katrina is taking a westerly path and will spare Orlando and the Disney World area any real damage. There have been no closures announced and as far as I know, everything remains open… Read More »Hurricane Katrina passes Mickey by

Disney Afternoon Soundtrack bling

I wasted many a study session watching the Disney Afternoon back at the college dorm. That was a really great time for Disney television, certainly the greatest since the prime of the Mickey Mouse club and the Disneyland show. I’m not alone apparently, here Steve downloads a copy off alt.binaries.* and reminisces. Of course, if… Read More »Disney Afternoon Soundtrack bling

Everybody Needs 2 Draw Mickey Once

Everybody Needs 2 Draw Mickey Once is a repository of Mickey Mouse’s varied and many personalities as drawn by his fans (and some of his anti-fans too!). Although some of the pictures are a little adventuresome, see Sickey, I recommend you go check it out, then submit your Mickey Mouse drawing to the collection. One… Read More »Everybody Needs 2 Draw Mickey Once

Mickey’s cousin Micky?

But wait you say, isn’t that two years before Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney’s beloved icon was first unleashed in Steamboat Willie? Why yes it was. Read the full transcript of the show (in PDF) then click below for more…

Sign In at Walt Disney World

When I was a kid, Disney was gradiose, the characters larger-than-life
(literally), and this place was where all my dreams came true for a
day. Now, I focus on different things, my awareness and perception are
different, and my expectations much lower. The heat and high humidity
might have had something to do with it.

Douglas Bowman,  of the always significant StopDesign blog, has a post up that looks at his visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. The accompanying signage focused photo gallery is beautiful.

For a wonderful collection of Disney fonts visit MickeyAvenue.

Best Hidden Mickey Yet

Steamboat’s blog (whose blogroll I’m honored to be on) is written in Japanese, so I can’t understand a word of it. But judging by the photos it looks to extensively cover Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. She’s also posted what I consider to be one of the coolest Hidden Mickey’s around. Set during one of… Read More »Best Hidden Mickey Yet

A little pixie shopping…

I’ve been looking for some new accessories for my car. I collect Disney antenna balls, but my new car doesn’t have an antenna. (The horror. The horror.) So I was thinking about some Disney themed plate frames, metal tags, and window decals. (I’m such a rebel.) I’ve been looking for the perfect stuff during my… Read More »A little pixie shopping…
