    by , 04-29-2012 at 12:18 PM
    My wife found two of these Disneyland Commemorative Playsets online. After getting over the initial surprise, I started to investigate the box for clues. The following is all that was printed on the box:

    Disneyland Commemorative Playset
    Disney Magic
    The Walt Disney Company
    Only at Sears
    For ages over 4
    Item No. 60309

  2. Walt Disney World History Books, a Bibliography

    by , 04-22-2012 at 01:50 PM
    In 2007, I started as a way to share my love of Disney theme park-related books. The majority of my posts and articles have been about books and showcasing the various titles about Walt Disney World. It is obvious from my column here at Mice Chat, that I have an obsession with Disney-related books. They are the basis for most of my research and have inspired most of the projects I have done.

    A frequent request I have had over the years is for books about the history ...

    I ran across this image of Walt Disney in Walt Disney World Then, Now, and Forever by Bruce Gordon and Jeff Kurtti.

    by , 04-07-2012 at 05:37 PM

    I rhapsodized about my obsession with the Bob-A-Round boats in an earlier column. Shortly after that, I received a message from Bob Gurr about those boats as well as another project with a similar name that might interest me: the Bob-A-Long boats.

    After picking myself up off of the floor (I mean, how often does a Disney Legend email you), I asked Bob a few more questions about the Bob-A-Long ...

  5. Walt Disney World Souvenir Guides

    by , 04-01-2012 at 06:46 PM
    You never forget your first Disney book.

    On a trip in 1994, I saw a book display in one of the stores (probably on Main St., USA) about Walt Disney World. It was a purple book with the park icons on the cover. It was called the Walt Disney World Souvenir Guide.

    When I got home, I savored every page of the book. I analyzed each photograph and committed the pages of text to memory. This book ...
