The Muppet show they have in Liberty Square at MK is pretty good I think.

Ron Miller, former president and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, has passed away at age 85 today. New Fantasyland, EPCOT Center, and Tokyo Disneyland were all developed during his term along with both the Disney Channel and Touchstone Pictures.

I had a vivid dream about a week and a half ago that left me with an odd feeling when awoke. Yesterday, nearly every detail of the dream occurred. What does it mean?

I’m not quite sure but can you send me what you think the Mega Millions #s will be for Tuesday’s California Lottery? I swear I’ll really play them.

Amazing how poorly Disney has been managing the Muppets- especially when the Muppets used to be capable of greatness:

I agree and was going to say maybe there is hope they would dust it off for Disney+... apparently that’s a thing.

I just got a backstage tour of Mickey and the Magical Map. It was so cool! The imagineer that helped create the show said that he loved working on it and hope they keep it for a long time. He also said he is working on a new show for Tokyo that opens in 2020 with 45 set changes! I also some posters for old show they have held there.

I really like 'Mickey & the Magical Map'.
Great music, fun staging, neat elements, and a lil' emotion here and there too.

I see it at least two or three times during my week long escapades when visiting Disneyland.

Something I'm surprised Disney hasn't done yet is a Figment/Dreamfinder film. You'd think it'd be a given with all the films based on attractions Disney's been putting out.

It could be great for a few reasons- the original attraction was a celebration of imagination and the creative process, something people of all ages can relate too. It's a character that EPCOT fans have been in love with since the '80s- so parents could see a beloved character from their youth brought to the big screen, and children can be introduced to a fleshed out version of an iconic character.

The characters have gotten a Marvel comics treatment- and they've sold fairly well.

The "theme" for the attraction used to be a wonderful Sherman brothers track- "One Little Spark" that could be adapted to a film fairly easily and bring some classic Disney charm.

A film could introduce the character to fans who've either only ridden the current bastardized version of the attraction, or who've never been to EPCOT. The character would also be fitting for a television series- where every week the duo venture into a new dream. If successful, it could be used as inspiration to fix the current version of the attraction. It could even inspire a new attraction to be built in the Carousel theater in Disneyland's Tomorrowland.

Shows that delve into the "Imagination" if done right tend to connect with audiences on an emotional level that few things can- the '92 iteration of Fantasmic! being a prime example. What was once a celebration of the surrealism and wonder of imagination full of effects that "wow" people of all ages with stagecraft that defies belief has been reduced to a simple water/projection fragmented clip show extravaganza that leaves little to be wondered and little room for an emotional connection.

Of course- I'm still blown away by the horrific treatment Mickey and Minnie are getting for the 90th celebration, an opportunity to bring together Disney fans of every age to celebrate America's most iconic character with an exhibit celebrating Mickey's heritage and evolution in the Disney gallery, a new series of shorts in the various styles of Mickey, and to have Mickey meet and greets in the style of each generation of the Mouse has been reduced to a "Get Your Ears On" promotion relying solely on the current weird version of Mickey and selling Mickey themed foods.

It's a great idea. Too bad Disney isn't smart enough to come up with something that creative. They have to remake every animated movie and make at least fifty Marvel and Star Wars movies first.

If Disney couldn't get their act together to make a Kingdom Hearts movie, they aren't going to be creative enough to get behind a Dreamfinder film. Get ready for a photo-realistic CGI remake of Aristocats.

Frozen II looks like a high fantasy epic and I kinda dig it
Oh, no. I wanted to hate this, but it looks like they made some very good decisions for the sequel. And I'll go see anything featuring a stampede of angry heroic reindeer. I applaud them for going against expectations and presenting a completely non-musical action-adventure trailer. So far, so good.

I'm definitely hesitant for the film as I feel a lot of Disney's latest movies have been mediocre and lack class but I'm definitely hopeful based on just this trailer. I feel a lot of people forget the more adventurous and, dare I say, violent moments in Frozen so I like that they seem to be playing more on those aspects of the original film.
