In honor of what would have been Walt’s 112th birthday, we thought we’d show you some of the coolest Disney-inspired birthday cakes from around the web.
One of the dishes on our Thanksgiving table today is the Cobblestone Cheddar Bread from the former Yacht Club Galley restaurant at Walt Disney World. This restaurant was once in the space that now houses the Captain’s Grille at — you guessed it — the Yacht Club resort. The Yacht Club Galley’s cobblestone bread was beloved, and still remains a favorite recipe in the book Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs.
We just got home from our longest vacation to Walt Disney World yet, and the luxury of time gave us the opportunity to take a look at some of the smaller show pieces that might be overlooked by more rushed Disney tourists. For instance, I could get lost in some of the vignettes you can find in the World Showcase pavilions in EPCOT, like the one below in the France pavilion.
It’s no secret that EPCOT is our favorite park in Florida, and we spent well over half of our park time there on this 14-night visit. Stay tuned for our recaps of the 2013 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and more!
We’re back from our fabulous Walt Disney World vacation! We’ve got lots to share with you about our wedding, honeymoon, EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival recaps, and Christmas events at Walt Disney World, but for now, we’re going to start slow. Here are some photos we took of the Beast’s castle in the new (to us) Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom. Reviews of both lunch and dinner at the famous Be Our Guest restaurant will be coming soon. Stay tuned!
Happy Halloween, everybody! Today we’re sharing two short films by the Daws Brothers, independent filmmakers who caught the eye of the Disney community last Halloween when they recorded a short film almost entirely at Disneyland. Missing in the Mansion follows three people on a special day at Disneyland that goes horribly wrong. This year, they’ve released a second installment titled Followed from the Mansion. You can enjoy wall-to-wall creeps in both videos below, and make sure to check out their YouTube page for a video on the making of Missing in the Mansion and other works.
There are two new Mickey Mouse shorts online! First up, Pluto makes his all-too-brief debut in Dog Show.
There’s not a lot to say about Dog Show. Mickey and Pluto are training for a dog show, but Pluto is in a terrible accident. Goofy tries to stand in as his replacement, but plans go awry when Goofy interprets the shows events in unusual ways. Continue reading
We here at the Hyperion house love Halloween, and today we’re looking at one of my favorite spooky shorts: Trick or Treat (1952).
Trick or Treat has a great opening. The Donald Duck title cards get a festive makeover, and true to midcentury animation, a fun title song is included in the title sequence.
