Happy 88th Birthday Mickey and Minnie Mouse!
DisneyDan  Friday, November 18, 2016 7:21:54 AM
Hello everyone,

Today is the 88th birthday of the most famous, most adorable and most popular mice in the world - Mickey and Minnie Mouse! Debuting on this day in 1928, in Walt Disney's classic short, "Steamboat Willie", Mickey and Minnie Mouse are the world's sweethearts, and have captured the hearts and imaginations of every generation since.

Happy 88th Birthday, Mickey and Minnie Mouse!

Have a great day everyone,

Happy 87th Birthday Mickey and Minnie Mouse!

Hello everyone,

Today is the 87th birthday of the two most famous mice in the world, Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

On 18th November 1928, Walt Disney's Steamboat Willie debuted to the public, and stars were born.

Without Mickey and Minnie, we wouldn't have the Disney company that we have today. For that we are eternally grateful to Walt Disney, and of course Mickey and Minnie, and look forward to many more decades of fun and laughter with them.

Happy 87th Birthday Mickey and Minnie!

Happy 69th Anniversary Song of the South!
DisneyDan  Thursday, November 12, 2015 10:33:36 AM
Hello everyone,

Today is the 69th annviersary of the premiere of Disney's Song of the South. A film that has caused controversy over the years, Song of the South is not one that readily celebrated, however, the characters do appear at the Disney parks around the world. We love to meet the Brers, and so in my usual style, I thought I would share some of our favourite moments with them,   [ Read More... ]
Character A to Z - A is for Abby Mallard!

Hello everyone,

In a new series here on the blog I want to take a close-up look at all the characters Jon and I have personally seen over the years. I figured the easiest way to do this would be to go alphabetically through our main list, and so I decided to call the series 'Character A to Z'. My intention is not to provide too much text going forward, instead, really just showcasing some of our favourite moments with that character, in photos, from the Disney Parks around the world.

Obviously we have to start at the top of the list, and   [ Read More... ]

Happy 85th Birthday Pluto and 88th Birthday Oswald!

Hello everyone,

Today, 5th September, is Pluto's 85th birthday! First appearing in the Mickey Mouse short "The Chain Gang" in 1930, Pluto was first seen tracking Mickey down after he escaped from prison! Since then though, Pluto has become Mickey's faithful companion and one of his best friends.

Today is also the 88th birthday of   [ Read More... ]
Happy 14th Anniversary Tokyo DisneySea!
DisneyDan  Friday, September 4, 2015 9:15:11 AM
Today, 4th September, is the 14th anniversary of the grand opening of Tokyo DisneySea at Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan.

Extravagant, incredibly detailed, beautifully themed and elaborately decorated, Tokyo DisneySea set a new bar in theme park design, becoming an instant hit with not just the Japanese, but world over.

Its seven themed ports offer an incredible array of attractions, stores, dining venues and experiences that are all amazing in their own individual ways. We have been fortunate enough to visit Tokyo DisneySea numerous times over the years, most recently in May of this year, which of course means we have taken many, many photos there!

In my usual style, I want to share with you a selection of our photos from our various trips   [ Read More... ]

Happy 81st Birthday Donald Duck!
DisneyDan  Tuesday, June 9, 2015 9:17:25 AM
Starring in more roles than his best pal Mickey, Donald Duck is hot tempered but ever lovable. His very human, and often hilarious, frustration with the more irritating side of life has provided entertainment to his fans since his debut in the Silly Symphonies on 9th June 1934. Donald Duck’s ever suffering love interest is Daisy Duck, who along with her short temper, make the perfect match.
A very keen traveller, Donald is also friends with Jose and Panchito whom he met on his exploits to South America.
While something very small can make him flip, Donald's down to earth approach to life means he is adored by generations of fans world over.

Happy 81st Birthday, Donald Duck!
