Year of a Million Dreams Commercial

This is straight up magical, no bones about it. I could watch it daily. Watching this makes me smile and want to hop in my car and drive the 20-some hours to Walt Disney World. Only 50 weeks until the next trip.

(Sorry for the lack of quality, but this was filmed using my Canon digital camera, off my TV, from the World's End BluRay disc, as a source was not found online. Hopefully someone will know of a better quality.)

Enjoy!

January 2, 2008 - Steamroller From 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'

"When the tram leaves the building it brings guest through an outside area named the boneyard (named after an aircraft boneyard). In the boneyard are vehicles which were featured in many films. Included are ships from the Star Wars films, the escape pod from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, cars used in the Herbie the Love Bug films, bone cages from Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest, the holding cage from the 1997 Disney adaptation of George of the Jungle, and boats and other vehicles used in other Disney produced films."

January 1, 2008 - Haunted Mansion Holiday


Haunted Mansion Holiday, originally uploaded by Jeremy ES.

"The outside of the mansion has been covered in both jack-o-lanterns and Christmas decorations. On the roof is Jack Skellington's coffin sleigh and stretched from the roof to the floor is his comical Christmas equation. There is also a clock with bat wings for hands that tells how many days are left until Christmas. As guests wind through the outside line, creepy yet peaceful carols constantly play."

365 Days of Disney

This is something to see if I can get through the entire year by doing a post a day about Disney theme parks. The photos will mainly come from my personal collections, though I may borrow (and credit) others if the need arises. Sources will be noted daily, and the first post will be back-dated for yesterday.

The main idea behind this is to emulate the feeling of a day-by-day calender. Some of the facts will be well known, and hopefully some will surprise you.

Let's see if I can do this....!
