Disney This Week - 7 February 2010

Disney This Week - 7 February 2010
Ryan P. Wilson

While Disney enthusiasts have bemoaned the current state of the yeti, the central piece of the Expedition Everest experience, Popular Mechanics scribe Seth Porges explores the science behind the story of the Forbidden Mountain.

I have a serious problem with the France pavilion in World Showcase. With her crepe flip book, AJ gives us just one of the reasons why I can’t stay away. The Disney Food Blog also offers up a comprehensive examination of healthy options for dining in Walt Disney World.

I have spoke often about my fondness for all things related to the Fort Wilderness Campground. Greg Ehrbar, over at D23, offers a great primer for those who have never explored the many storied corners of this magnificent campground.

Continuing SamLand’s Disney Adventures’ tour of Adventureland, Sam Gennawey offers a look back at one of the oldest living trees, a Canary Island Date Palm, in Disneyland and how it relates to the land before Disneyland was there and to the family of one of Disneyland’s finest Cast Members.

Dick Nunis is often remembered for his work in the early years of Walt Disney World, but after seeing him in his “fun, cool and professional look,” as brought to us by George Taylor and Imaginerding, I may never be able to get that image out of my memory.

The Disney Chick offers us a wordless wonder from Epcot. Simply beauty is often the best course, eh?

With all of the talk about the new version of Star Tours coming to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, it is nice to see Vintage Disneyland Tickets looking back at some opening information on the original Star Tours in California.

Once again turning to the wonderful world of guest bloggers, Jeff Onorato steps in over at AllEars to take readers on a tour of Wolfgang Puck Grand Café. Not only does he showcase the fine décor, but also offers us some tempting glimpses at the menu.
