Makes you walk a little taller….

Deborah's Disney Diaries

TIMG_1188he American Adventure, as I have said, is a terrific show in America in Epcot. During the Christmas season, there were wonderful carolers, but this show is so entertaining, multiple visits are encouraged.  Dr. Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Clemens( AKA Mark Twain), tell the story of America. Prior to entering the auditorium, one enters a escalator where all the flags that created America to the present one we are familiar with in present day.IMG_1197 Listening to the narrator as well as the conversation between Dr. Franklin and Clemens, one sits a little taller in your chair, and leaving you walk a little taller.

Disney Princess Art Collections

I'm All Ears

I have been perusing the Disney Store webiste lately, including DS Japan and UK and have come across a few art pieces/collections I think are wonderful!

This limited edition Disney Princes Gallery Collection was designed by a team of three artists under the supervision of Disney Senior Principal Character Artist Kim Raymond, and each print is one of only 250 pieces. Find it Here!

It looks like these beauties are only available via Disney Store UK. My favorites of the collection are Tiana and Belle, I think the artists captured something special with those two portraits.

Eric Tan brings a retro look to this poster art for The Little Mermaid.  ”Amazing Adventure Just Below the Surface” is modern while retaining a very classic Disney feel.Now, if only I had a home theater to hang it in… =P Find it Here!

I am IN LOVE with this piece by Genevieve Godabout and…

History of Mickey Mouse — Infographic

What do you think?

NJBiblio

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E

I am not shy at all to admit that I am in love with a mouse.  I have always adored Mickey and millions of other around the world have as well — so much so that he has become instantly recognizable in every corner of the globe and a part of many cultures. But how did our hero rise from his humble beginnings as a replacement for Walt Disney’s lost character of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to the superstar he is now?  Today’s inforgraphic traces his history and evolution from his “birth” in 1928 to present.

World Secrets: Jellyrolls Dueling piano bar near Disney’s Boardwalk Resort

Disneyways

Our latest edition to our World Secrets Series is taking us to Jellyrolls! This adult-oriented facility provides a noisy – yet very FUN retreat for the 21 and up crowd.   Jellyrolls  is named after Jelly Roll Morton, a legendary jazz pianist, not a desssert. His real name was Ferdinand Joseph LaMothe – but that probably wouldn’t fit on the marquee quite as well.

jelly

Depending on where you start out on Disney property,  you can get to Jellyrolls Piano Bar by boat, a bus, or even on foot. More on that later.

So what’s Jellyrolls like?  Well, it reminded me of Howl at the Moon, which is a similar piano bar located here in Orlando, and in 15 other locations across the country. What makes this different is it is at Disney, perhaps the only place in the world where you will hear a gritty-voiced piano man sing a song…

The never ending adventures of Pinocchio

Quintessentialruminations

The original tale of Pinocchio, the wooden boy whose adventures are familiar from the Walt Disney film, was censored in the same way as translations of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Today’s audiences are less sensitive, so can we look forward to a no-holds-barred portrayal of the badly behaved puppet?

Trailer For Disney’s Planes

PLANES

Dane Cook has been tapped to voice the lead character Dusty, a plane with high hopes in “Disney’s Planes.” Inspired by the world of “Cars” and directed by Disneytoon Studios veteran and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall (“King of the Hill,” “The Simpsons”), “Disney’s Planes” is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure about Dusty’s dream of competing as a high-flying air racer—and his decidedly unfortunate fear of heights. The film takes off in theaters in 3D on Aug. 9, 2013

The all-new story offers an exciting cast of characters and centers on Dusty’s high-flying dream. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing, so he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.

Lost 1995 UFO Documentary by Disney

This and That

A#61
This UFO documentary was filmed and produced by The Walt Disney Company. Titled ‘Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland’ and hosted by Robert Urich, there is also an introduction in the beginning by Michael D. Eisner, head of Walt Disney at the time.

It is said that this documentary was only shown once on television in just five states and never again. The UFO documentary shows some unseen actual UFO footage and expert interviews. Weird that UFOs are presented as a matter of fact and the docu even includes Disney’s proposal on how the alien encounter should be treated.

My Favorite Animal Kingdom restaurant

Eat.Breathe.Sleep.Magic.

Over my most recent trip to Disney World this past December, my mom & I ate at a restaurant in Animal Kingdom for the first time – Yak & Yeti.  Not only is this restaurant beautifully themed, it also is right on the parade route AND has really yummy food!

I’m going back to Disney World in June, and I’m taking my husband to experience Yak & Yeti.  I’ve been dreaming about the Fried Wontons (the most amazing dessert) since December and am contemplating just ordering 2 of those instead of an entree.

 

A few pictures of the decor:
