Good morning! This day in Disney history, August 15th, 1946:"Make Mine Music" Directed By: Clyde Geronimi and Robert Cormack is generally released.
The eighth animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series which premiered in New York last April 20th. A compilation of ten musical shorts, it is narrated by Nelson Eddy. Starring: actor-Sterling Holloway (future voice of Winnie the Pooh) , The King's Men, vocalist-Dinah Shore, bandleader-clarinetist-Benny Goodman and the singing trio The Andrews Sisters.
Most of Walt Disney's staff had been drafted into WWII, and the remaining were called upon by the U.S. government to make propaganda and training films. This resulted in the studio having tons of unfinished story ideas. To keep the studio thriving, they released six package films including this one. Make Mine Music is the third package film, following "Saludos Amigos" and "The Three Caballeros".
Stories in Make Mine Music include:
1. The Martins and the Coys- featuring the popular radio vocal group "Kings Men" This short was later cut from the DVD release because of the gun play ::sigh:: 2. Blue Bayou - Originally intended to be part of Fantasia using the Debussy Musical Composition Clair De Lune 3. All the Cats Join In- One of two segments to which Benny Goodman contributed. An innovative short in which a pencil draws the action as it is happening, and in which 1940s teens are swept away by popular music. 4. Without You- A ballad of lost love, sung by Andy Russell. 5. Casey at the Bat- Features Jerry Colonna, reciting the famous poem by Ernest Thayer 6. Two Silhouettes- Features 2 live-action ballet dancers, David Lichine and Tania Riabouchinskaya, moving in silhouette with animated backgrounds and characters. Dinah Shore sings the title song. 7. Peter and the Wolf (a personal favorite 😍)- An animated dramatization of the 1936 musical composition by Sergei Prokofiev, with narration by actor Sterling Holloway. A Russian boy named Peter sets off into the forest to hunt the wolf with his animal friends. 8. After You've Gone- once again features Benny Goodman and his orchestra. 9. Johnny Fedora and Alice Bonnett- The romantic story of 2 hats who fall in love in a department store window. The Andrews Sisters provide the vocals. 10. The Whale Who Wanted To Sing at the Met - The bittersweet finale about a sperm whale named Willie with incredible musical talent and his dreams of singing Grand Opera.

unFORECAST for the month of April 2016 Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM
