Disney This Week - 28 March 2010

Disney This Week - 28 March 2010
Ryan P. Wilson

If you have come to love Walt Disney World in the past two decades, then you know about the Fife and Drum Corp in World Showcase. However, this was not the original version of the patriotic experience, as George Taylor related to readers of Imaginerding through a vintage postcard.

I love to get my haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street U.S.A. As it turns out, I can get the same experience in Disneyland Paris. Princess Fee shows off the Daper Dan’s Barber Shop, as well as some clever details, over at DF’82.

I have always loved the International Flower and Garden Festival. To be totally honest, it is one of the reasons I always do my research in the spring. So, it is without wonder as to why I love Tokyomagic!’s tour of Tokyo DisneySea 2008 Spring Carnival. You can follow along over at Meet the World by reading Part I, Part II, and Part III.

AJ will forget more about Disney Dining in her lifetime than most of us will ever know, and if she doesn’t know something, she knows where to get the answer. That is why it is so great to see her collaborate with her Disney Food Blog readers to come up with a fantastic collection of Disney Dining tips.

Some places in Walt Disney World you dine at for the food, some for the ambiance, and some for the entertainment. This week, Amanda Tinney takes Disney Every Day to a spot where you can have all three, Whispering Canyon Cafe.

I have long been a fan of night photography found at The Disney Obsession. In fact, Greg Grimsley is the one who inspired me to figure out how to take quality night pictures with my point-and-shoot.

Alice in Wonderland has been smashing the recent box office and Princess in the Frog has been released for home theathers, but the buzz this week should be revolving around the film that takes a look at Disney animation in the 1980s and 1990s. Scott Wolf, of D23, offers his review of Waking Sleeping Beauty.

VinylNation reports on the Passholder Preview of the new Vinylmation store, D Street. The preview is next Saturday, April 3. I am going to make sure to be there, even if it means arriving to Epcot a little later in the day.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios, specifically the Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards, take great pride in the history of Hollywood. Over at Studios Central, Matt Hochberg offers up a detailed look and the historical inspirations for Villains in Vogue.

Staying in the Studios, Lou Mongello takes WDW Radio on the road as he scours the park for Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ best snack.

Every week, there is a ton of great stories coming out of the Disney Parks Blog. In case you missed it, Jackie Ogden reveals details behind the rescue and rehabilitation effort for sea turtles caught in the abnormal cold this winter offered up.

I will be in Walt Disney World the next two weekends, but fear not, Disney This Week will still make its appearance on Sunday mornings. Although the article list may not be as extensive as it usually is, it will still be available for your weekend viewing.

Also, if you’d like to follow along on my adventures I will be sending pictures and updates to Twitter. Be sure you are following along, because you never know what I’ll see or who I’ll run into!
