Those of you who know me, know I love Disney stuff. Especially pre-Little Mermaid, before body humor and stage musical music invaded the Disney cannon. Since marrying, I've had a Lot more tolerance for modern Disney stuff (but not the farting, burping stuff, sorry), and by and large, I love it all equally. True, my 3 favorite Disney films are still
Alice in Wonderland
which aren't at the top of everyone's lists, but I think they are great. Gus is Supremely underrated. And I count the creator of that story, Ted Key, as a good friend of mine. At 90+ he's still going strong. We'll be publishing his autobiography next year.
Of course that means that Disneyworld is my favorite place on earth. I've only been to Disneyland in CA once, but Disneyworld is the best of course since there is So much room for everything. I like Epcot just as much as the Magic Kingdom; just as much to do at both. Even though nothing beats Epcot if you want to get fat!
One of my wife's favorite character is Stitch, mostly because he reminds her of small, cute dogs. And the Japanese people do love their "cute" things! She got a cute Stitch cookie jar, which she refuses to use. Just decoration, of course. But her favorite ride is Pooh's Honey Hunt. Pooh might be her favorite character, because of the personality as well. But the Honey Hunt in Tokyo Disneyland is Much better - what other place has a bouncing Tigger room? I mean it Really bounces, not just rolls like in DW.
I'm really hoping DW will agree to carry Charles Tranberg's Fred MacMurray book. For some reason they passed on my Paul Frees book. But since Fred is more of an icon, here's hoping. Anyone reading this have pull with Disney? :)
