Happy Fourth of July!

In honor of the 4th we present this video of a super patriotic fireworks display over Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland (featuring music from Epcot's American Adventure):

Speaking of American Adventure, the inspiring audio animatronic show at Epcot, here is a great video with highlights of the show:

No discussion of patriotic Disney attractions would be complete without a look at the Hall of Presidents from Walt Disney World:

Finally, just because it made me laugh, here is a video I found entitled Hall of Inaccurate Presidents:

Happy 4th of July! Eat some BBQ, have a beer and try not to blow your hand off lighting a bottle rocket.

Ken is going to SDCC

But what is SDCC? if only I could decipher the code...

Perhaps it's the Salvation and Deliverance Church of Connecticut!

Oh right. San Diego Comic Con. That makes sense too.

The Aristocats

On the most recent Ken PD Snydecast Ken and Dana talk about The Aristocats. It's one of the more underrated Disney flicks. It's a fun time with lots of engaging characters and solid music.

The film has three kittens at the center of the plot and they have all appeared at Disney parks.

However, Marie is far and away the most popular particularly in Tokyo Disneyland.

There are a few possible reasons. For starters, her name is easier to pronounce. The other two are named Toulouse and Berlioz. Also, there is always a demand for more female characters in the parks.

I've also heard that in Tokyo she was initially popular because she sorta looks like Hello Kitty and that led to her being popular in her own right. I don't recall where I heard that. Possibly I dreamed it.
