Disney This Week - 2 May 2010

The front-side of Disney’s Hollywood Studios has always made me long for the golden era of Hollywood. So to does this photograph of New York Street by Melissa Loflin of the Makin’ Memories photoblog.

A trio of Disneyland stories caught my attention this week. First up, Dave took Daveland readers through The Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Mansion overlay, with a keen eye towards Oogie’s enhancements. Meanwhile, photos of Dave’s made their way over to Sam Gennawey, whose history of a specific spot on the Mark Twain over at SamLand’s Disney Adventures makes me want to pull out some old Louis Armstrong albums. Finally, staying on Disneyland’s waterways, Vintage Disneyland Tickets plied the waterways with the keel boats.

In current Disneyland news, Disney’s California Food and Wine Festival is taking place at Disney’s California Adventure. Luckily for all of us, AJ has complete festival coverage on The Disney Food Blog.

Like myself, two other North Carolina authors decided to visiting the yesterday of Walt Disney World in the past few days. Over at Imagindering, George Taylor reminds us of how characters used to wander freely through the Magic Kingdom, as if they actually lived there. Elsewhere, Michael Crawford exposed readers of Progress City, U.S.A. to the melodious sounds of the 70’s, the Dixie Deltas.

Steam trains are a massive part of the Walt Disney, and the entire Disney Company, story. Shawn Slater reminds us about where we can find a chronicle of Disney trains, past and present, at DisneyShawn.

While not necessarily a Disney sponsored event, Amanda Tinney and Disney Every Day remind us about the Lake Buena Vista Relay for Life.

Perhaps lost among a plethora of other articles this week, the Disney Parks Blog brought us news about elephant communication. Research has led Anne Savage, Ph.D., and her team to extraordinary discoveries about elephants' relationship to, and language about, bees.

The Disney Chick gives us food for thought as she presents her take on the five people you meet in line at Walt Disney World.
