    Annette Funicello honored: Disney renames Mouseketeer stage

    Here's a link to abc7 news article.
    Annette Funicello honored: Disney renames Mouseketeer stage | abc7.com

    Even though this honor was not at Disneyland, Disney is nevertheless acknowledging her influence on the Disney company and America as a whole.

    *mods, you can move this thread if it is not appropriate in the Disneyland forum, but I wanted to inform Disneyland fans -concerned with the fact that Annette was not honored with anything at Disneyland- that she is now indeed being honored by Disney in some way.

    That is so great! Just watched Parent Trap this last weekend and loved her little song during the dance. She had a guest appearance on Love Boat that I remember fondly, I'm just old enough to remember her as the Skippy peanut butter Mom when I was a kid.

    I hope there will be a big tribute during the Disney Legends ceremony at this year's D23.

    Glad to see she is getting some much deserved recognition.

    The day she died, my dad told me the story about his first trip to Disneyland, because it showed the mouseketeers at Disneyland in the show, he figured they lived here. He was a pre-teen boy when he went and spent a good amount of time trying to find Annnette.
