Look what just came in the mail from Disney Movie Club...Disney Immagineering DVDs. They take WDW rides, attractions, and stuff and use it to teach science. I had the first three they made and have been waiting two years for new ones. As an Industrial Technology Teacher, these are GREAT in my classroom. I teach electricity, hydraulics, pneummatics, drafting, and mechanical systems. All off those subjects are found in Disney rides and attractions.
***RAK WINNER*** I put the names in the hat and my little man selected 5disneylovers. Respond with your email and then well make contact so I can get this mailed off to you. _Congrats!
***RAK*** I am going to try my First RAK. This is a 5 x 7 Disney 3-D Lenticular Collector's Card exclusively commissioned for the Disney Movie Club and cannot be purchased in any store. Say, "Please Enter Me" and tell me something you like about the "Princess and the Frog." Good Luck. RAK ends Monday at Noon EST.
check this character out. Look closely at eyes and hands. Where have I seen those before? I think they took some inspiration from a certain mouse.
I just learned I can refinance my Mortgage at a much lower interest rate and save $650.00 a month. I wonder how I will spend over $7000 a year savings? I feel a trip down south coming on. Woo Hoo!
I wanted to show you some of my art, inspired by none other than Experiment 626 (otherwise known as STITCH). These used to be in my son's bedroom, but at 16, he decided it was time to let them go. I, on the other hand could not let them go, so I brought them to my classroom to be displayed. Since summer is waning, it was time to visit the classroom and figure out what I needed to get done before school starts. Thats when I ran into these guys again. Can anyone out there name any of these characters?
#Retro! 1970 - can you get anymore retro than this? My grandfather introduces me to Mickey Mouse.
#Retro! 2008 - Another for the STEELER NATION! Go SIXburgh - climb that Stairway to SEVEN! The only one who put up a fuss was STITCH (can you believe it)? He wouldn't pose with me and my Terrible Towel. I guess Disney can't endorse any one particular team or organization. Still, I haven't heard any flack about Hines Ward's Mickey Mouse (in Steelers Uniform) tattoo.
#Retoday! Sept 2008. Pittsburgh STEELERS day at the Magic Kingdom. The whole family wore jerseys...even Grandma.
Today is my birthday.. My daughter, knowing how much I love MouseWait, crafted me this custom card. I wear my Grape Soda, pin on my hat. I am asked daily what it means, which gives me an opportunity to tell folks about MouseWait. I love this kid. Oh wait, I'm supposed to, she's my daughter.
Disneyland records present....a 33 rpm LP. Flee Markets are a different treasure trove of Disney memoribilia
At the Hazen, PA Flee Market (swap meet) and I found this Disney treasure. It's a Mickey Mouse View Master.
At Webelos Adventure Camp, Henson Scout Reservation, Delmarva Peninsula, near Sharptown, Maryland. A couple of the camp counselors were sporting these WDW patches.
Some Disney Treasures I found tucked away in an old desk drawer as I was cleaning out my father's apartment. The Mickey Mouse pocket watch is indeed my favorite. Gotta go out and get a watch-bob for it.
Here was my verdict on Disneyland..... first of all thanks for everyones comments and advice not to compare DL to WDW. I grew up in my early childhood in CA and had been to DL many times. In 97 I visited again. Yesterday, my wife and I decided to focus on rides and attractions that were not at WDW. After completing those we went back and rode rides found at both parks. I must say the Star Tours upgrade was AWESOME! We had a great time but were missing our kids. I think that was a big part of the "missing magic." All in all it was a great distraction from settling my fathers estate. Indiana Jones ride was fantastic. Pirates - I like DL's better than WDW. How do you like the Wookie Hat from Star Tours?
At Disneyland right now. Its been a long time since I've been here. It's hard not to compare with WDW. everything is so jammed together. not as magical.
Good morning. Anyone for a little Disney Music Jam Session?
where do ya think I got the inspiration for this bean-bag toss game?
1970 - my first visit to Disneyland. That's me and my Dad. An unexpected emergency in California looks like it will open the door for a stop at the Happiest Place on Earth. The last time I was at Disneyland was in 1997. I never expected to be going back - especially being on the East Coast. Cars Land...Here I Come.
The MARVEL wing of the Disney Store. What are everyone's feelings about this?
