Team Mousetalgia reviews two new books this week. First, we discuss “B-1st” by Disney artists Retta Scott and Woolie Reitherman, and we take a close at this interesting World War II-era proposed children’s book that never made it to publication – until 2016. We examine the exquisite art and cultural mores evidenced in this in-progress project that was never completed. Also, we look at “The Art of Moana,” and talk about the features, facts and imagery that the book presents about this Academy Award-nominated film. Next, we answer your questions, with topics including Candlelight Weekend expectations; adulting at Disneyland Resort and finding the best lounge; a surprise performance by the Mariachi Divas; preparing toddlers for the drama and excitement of a first trip to Walt Disney World; ideas for commemorating the successful viewing of every Disney animated feature; Disney’s ties to Hollywood’s Magic Castle; and a cautionary postscript to our stolen stroller story. Plus – show some Disney love this Valentine’s season with our tips and tricks!
