Corrections to the Disney Timeline

Recently, Tumblr user Aish's (disneynewsgroove)  historical timeline of Disney animated films made its way around social media. For the most part it was a very good attempt and it is easy to see where they opted several times to place the film either when the original story was published or the original film released. Of course, there are a few exceptions that we noted and wanted to point out in good fun, because we're a nitpicking blog dedicated to the real historical influences behind Disney films and that's what we do.

Our First Trip to Walt Disney World!

Ashley and I were married on a beautifully atmospheric August 29, 2014, in Banff, Alberta, Canada, and shortly thereafter took our honeymoon in Walt Disney World. Disney has marked off a few major points in our relationship - our first trip together was to Disneyland USA and we were engaged in Disneyland Paris - so Walt Disney World seemed an appropriate choice for our honeymoon. Going there also completed my checklist of Disney resorts that are not in Communist dictatorships where my religion is illegal. Now that we're home, we're able to reflect on the similarities and differences, strengths and weaknesses of each of the free world Disney parks.
