    Anymore classic Disney film/TV coming to Disney+?

    I hope so. That is what they need.

    Favorite Songs: 1960's & all the way 'til Today

    Some songs I seem to like "just because." No particular emotion or powerful lyrics -- but just good songs. Two of those for me are "Islands in the Stream" by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton and "You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma" by David Frizell and Shelly West. I just like them, lol.

    News Expect closure of Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disneyland to impact Walt Disney World

    I agree with all of this. I also agree with others here that WDW and DL are benefiting from decades of good will and great experiences. But the sticker shock is starting to be experienced among friends I know with families. Some have thought about WDW vacations and just decided to go the...

    Ja’Net DuBois, star of “Good Times” and composer/singer of “The Jeffersons” theme song, dead at 74

    Agreed, and I think she just brought a fun attitude to her character. Lit up the set.

    Ja’Net DuBois, star of “Good Times” and composer/singer of “The Jeffersons” theme song, dead at 74

    https://www.wric.com/entertainment-news/janet-dubois-star-of-good-times-dead-at-74/ She was truly underrated. She both wrote and sang “Movin’ on Up” (“Jeffersons” theme) while starring as Willona on “Good Times.” Both had huge impacts, but I bet you now have her singing that theme song in your...

    A Valentine's Day idea for helping others

    Thanks everyone. It turned out to be a hit. All of the ladies wanted a rose. A local florist actually donated the roses. I had asked if they had anything left over that I could buy, and since they knew what I was doing, they donated them. They were various colors other than red, but that...

    A Valentine's Day idea for helping others

    I was talking to a teenager from church last night who is not dating anyone this year, and the thought came to me: wouldn't it be nice to go to the nursing home on Valentine's Day and give out roses to the ladies there who had lost their husbands? So, we decided that we are going to that. I...

    Ticket price increase / FP+ changes coming?

    The saddest part to me is that, while we WDW "experts" used to enjoy the perks of being a regular like navigating FP/FP+ to help our planning and add a few bonuses, it was still possible for newbies and fans alike to drop in on WDW (even just the Magic Kingdom -- "Disney World" to many tourists)...

    signature collection?

    Yeah, I never had a laser disc, but I know for a long time they were collectors' favorites. But I did not know that it was for the extra content. I thought it was for the picture resolution. (Didn't the CoP refer to laser discs for a long time in its last scene?) I usually like the...

    signature collection?

    I don't have Disney+ yet. Do you know if anything on Disney+ has special features like come with a BluRay or DVD?

    signature collection?

    I think they just come up with a new name every time they want to rerelease the originals. I personally and grateful that Roy E. Disney got as much as did out on the Walt Disney Treasures series before he passed away. The company seems to have no real interest in the older material these days...

    Actor Jake Lloyd Who Played Anakin Skywalker in 'Star Wars' Taken to Psychiatric Facility *UPDATED STATUS*

    Hollywood is littered with the bones of child actors whom it has chewed up and spit out. It has been that way since the beginning. The list is endless. I can't help but think of Jackie Coogan, Carl "Alfalfa" Schweitzer, Gary Coleman, Brian Bonsall, and on and on. Like I said above, few have...

    News Mickey and Minnie are not popular anymore

    This. Plus Disney has ebbed and flowed with how to treat Mickey Mouse for generations. It even goes back to Donald Duck, who in the early years was easier to write for because Mickey had become synonymous with good and thus bland. Mickey was meant to be the everyman character, which like...

    Actor Jake Lloyd Who Played Anakin Skywalker in 'Star Wars' Taken to Psychiatric Facility *UPDATED STATUS*

    You know, I wonder if they have ever reached out to Wil Wheaton. It occurs to me that he might be uniquely qualified to speak to Jake about his experiences and ways he coped with the criticism and ultimately overcame it. I remember the Star Trek fans absolutely piling on to criticize Wil's...

    Favorite Songs: 1960's & all the way 'til Today

    You remind me of something a gentlemen from church told me one time that has stuck with me. He said that there was value in being expected at a young age to listen to what parents listened to in the car, that many modern parents were doing a disservice to children by catering to them on...
