In Case You Missed It!

Are your ears still ringing from the fireworks of New Year’s? What? What? I can’t hear you…. Well…just in case…here’s this week’s article what you missed this week in the fun-tastic world of Disney excitement.

In Case You Missed It – Disney News and Rumors

 

Ever wonder what it was like to be one of Walt Disney’s secretaries? Dorothy Wrigley was. Read all about her story about how she started working for the company and hear in her own words what it was like to open Disneyland. In this second article, see actual minutes from a meeting in 1956 where Walt discussed a desire to build what would become the Skyway, Casey Jr. Railroad, and more.

Frozen is going gangbusters in the theaters! The movie has now passed the  $500 million dollar mark, and it’s still growing! How high will this thing go? Have you seen Frozen yet?

Yahoo! Finance named the Walt Disney Company its 2013 “company of the year.” Truthfully, it was a pretty stellar year for the company overall with major blockbusters, the theme parks posting record attendance figures, and the consumer products division posting a $1 billion (yep…with a B) profit for the first time ever. It will be intriguing to see what 2014 holds for the company.

This week, the Disney Cruise Line Blog did a wrap up of everything that happened on DCL. Let me tell ya, there was a lot going on!

Did you know that during the month of January, Disney is giving away a trip a day? Sign up for the Family Time Resolutions Sweepstakes!

We all know we spent too much this holiday season…so USA Today has concocted a list of some of the best bargain restaurants at Walt Disney World. A couple of my favorites made this list, like Columbia Harbor House and Flame Tree BBQ. Did any of yours?

Speaking of food…are you a fan of the turkey leg? It’s become a phenomenon for the Disney Parks, and this article in the New York Times takes a look at maybe why. (PS: I hate the turkey legs…I just can’t eat them. The smell almost makes me ill. If you love them, more power to ya!)

 

In Case We Missed It

How did we do? Miss something you thought was important? Write your idea on a Turkey Leg Air Freshener (ok…maybe try another one of the air fresheners…they have a new Dole Whip one that sounds lovely) and send it to blog@touringplans.com with the words “In Case You Missed It” in the subject line.
