Marceline to Magic Tour – In Honor of Disneyland’s 60th Birthday

Wonderful insight to a magical tour!-Mztress

The Mature Mouse™

Disneylandopened on July 17, 1955. I was born in 1957 and grew up watching Disney shows, such as the original Mickey Mouse Club. I remember sitting around the television with my family on Sunday evenings watching the Wonderful World of Color. My favorite episodes were those that featured an inside look at Disneyland. I wanted to go there, to walk in that magical place that Walt Disney had built. Every time I asked my parents when we would get to go to Disneyland, they would always give me the same answer, “some day.” Well, some day came during the summer of 1970 when my family finally made the trek to California to visit family and, of course, explore Disneyland (Chapter 1).IMG_1961The Mature MouseTM was very fortunate to be able to take the Marceline to Magic Tourduring my recent trip to Walt Disney World.

Deep thoughts: The Many Changes of Star Wars

Very interesting perspective.-Mztress

Constant Collectible

Over the years George Lucas and Lucas Arts have made multiple changes to the Star Wars Saga. Thanks to Youtuber Marcelo Zuniga you can now see all the changes made for A New Hope, Empire Strikes back and Return of the Jedi.

Star Wars: A New Hope- Part I

Star Wars: A New Hope-Part II

Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

Lucas has tried to defend his changes through the years “If you look at ‘Blade Runner,’ it’s been cut sixteen ways from Sunday and there are all kinds of different versions of it. ‘Star Wars,’ there’s basically one version — it just keeps getting improved a little bit as we move forward.” and “The controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han Solo, in ‘Episode IV,’ what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted…

Hello all! I am writing to you from the land of Magic and imagination aka Disney World, duh. So let me just tell you all how I ended up here… I have a friend, a Disney obsessed friend to be more specific.She used to work here at Disney’s Magic Kingdom and still has some hookups so we decided to venture on down and check it out!


My favorite parts about the trip thus far are:

Disney really has thought of everything- it’s all soconvenient. We have magic bands that we use for literally everything and multiple different means of transportation for anywhere you want to go. Want to go by boat? Sure! How about bus? Okay great. Oh you want the monorail? Perfect, lets go.

It’s hard to pick favorites when it comes to the parks. We have spent a day at each one to get a taste of all…

Hello, Disney lovers! The Donney and Bourke Disney purses and wallets are adorable! There are different sizes! They are really, really expensive, but I have heard that they last a long time!

Blogs From Geekdom

Always on the lookout for a bit of Disney trivia, my ears perked up when I was at the Golden Spike National Park in Promontory, Utah. You wouldn’t think Disney had anything to do with something made famous 32 years before Walt Disney was even born… but you’d be wrong!

Michelle's Intel

For those that know me, they will back me up on this: I LOVE Disneyland.

That being said, there are a few in my family that do not appreciate all the magic Disney has to offer. Here are some tips I have found useful in my own experience when dealing with a Disney Dud:

1. Plan ahead.

Disney Dreaming Podcast
