Walt Wednesday #18
"You’re dead if you aim only for the kids. Adults are only kids grown up.” Here’s a photo of Walt proving his point together with Joe Fowler, Bill Cottrell, and Marvin Davis (from left to right).

Relive the magic of Disney's new live action film Mary Poppins Returns with this classic doll from Mattel's Barbie Signature Collection. Dressed as seen at the Grand Music Hall, Mary Poppins is fully poseable and full of charm.
We saw this movie when it released in theaters. We enjoyed it, but nothing can compare to the original film with Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke.
DIY Fairy-tale Library - Part 5
It's not only books that will go inside the library....but other Beauty and the Beast related items too. Characters like Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts and Chip are Belle's new friends at the castle and are integral to the story.
I launched an Amazon wishlist for this project and received a gorgeous illustrated book!
Walt Wednesday #17
Walt and Admiral Charles C. Kirkpatrick watch on as Mrs. Mildred Nelson, wife of the chief machinist on the the first nuclear-powered submarine, USS Nautilus, christens Disneyland sub D-301, also named “Nautilus” on June 14, 1959. Shortly after the opening of the Disneyland Submarines, which coincided with the opening of the Matterhorn Bobsleds and Disneyland-Alweg Monorail, Joe Fowler (then Disneyland’s general manager and a retired U.S. Navy admiral) was summoned to Walt’s office at the Studios where he was joined by other Disneyland Imagineers. Walt congratulated Joe on his efforts and presented him with a plaque designating him as the “Commander-in-Chief of the Disneyland Navy.” However, Walt was quick to note “But don’t forget, that I am still the overall secretary of defense.”
I really wanted to display these dishes inside the library and I think they add that Disney touch! The books match the dishes. You can read more about this collection HERE.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
