  1. Getting My Game On: World of Cars, Split/Second, Epic Mickey and More

    by , 06-16-2010 at 10:03 PM (The Mouse Castle)
    [I]FULL DISCLOSURE: A few weeks ago, I attended a "Bloggers' Night" reception in Hollywood hosted by the good people at the Disney Interactive Media Group. They plied my friends and I with free food and beverages and allowed us to play some of their new and upcoming video game releases. This article has in no way been influenced by the extraordinary hospitality and generous gifts we received that night. So far as you know.[/I]

    I'll be the first to admit my video game ...

  2. Disneyland Hotel Getting a Nostalgic New Look

    by , 06-03-2010 at 08:47 PM (The Mouse Castle)
    I'll admit it. I've never really gotten over so much of the original Disneyland Hotel being torn out and replaced by Downtown Disney. Nostalgic memories of youth can be cruel that way. I miss the Olympic pool, the coffee shop, the garden rooms, the Monorail Bar--heck, I miss a Monorail station that was actually attached to the hotel. I even miss the ugly freight elevator in the breezeway that connected the front parking lot to the hotel grounds.

    You're out of town on business and looking for a good place to eat, so you point your smartphone at the neighborhood in front of you. Not only do you see the camera's view of the streets and buildings on screen, but the buildings within view are highlighted and you can even see what tonight's specials are.

    by , 04-18-2010 at 07:02 PM (The Mouse Castle)
    Explaining his success, comic book legend Stan Lee has no time for false modesty.

    "First of all, you have to start by being incredibly brilliant."

    He says it with a wink and a smile, but he's really not kidding.

  5. Saving the Birthplace of Animation: Kansas City Says 'Thank You Walt Disney'

    by , 03-19-2010 at 07:42 AM (The Mouse Castle)
    For the past 12 years, the old two-story wood and brick office building on Forest Avenue and 31st Street in Kansas City, Missouri has quietly been coming back to life. Saved from the wrecking ball after years of neglect, its crumbling walls have been shored up with steel framing and its collapsed roof repaired and replaced.

    One day, the fully-restored structure will house a museum and ...
