This article on Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar by Kevin Kidney really makes me want a Shipwreck Cocktail.

The Disney Food Blog and AJ Wolfe finally dispatch on the icon food item that has become synonymous with the site, the Mickey Waffle.

I also have several bits of well-belated business to share with all of you.

First up, for the fans of Walt Disney himself, a recent auction by Swann Galleries included a menu from the studio restaurant autographed by Walt Disney. The lot sold for $3,600 dollars on April 21.Next, Charles Ott released his pen and ink illustration of the Walt Disney World icon, Cinderella Castle.Last, but not least, Stefan Lawrence has designed a set of park posters for Walt Disney World’s 40th Anniversary.
