MARCH DDL RIDDLE

Sherri grew up in Beckley, West Virginia watching “Wonderful World of Disney” every Sunday night. She studied art at West Virginia University, which led to an appreciation of Walt Disney’s genius as an artist. Later, she and Mark, NDD#102, met and married and only afterwards realized that they were both huge fans of the Disney brand. Since discovering that they are “Disney people” Sherri and her husband have made yearly trips to Walt Disney World, while raising their three children to believe that wishes can come true. While at work, she enjoys being referred to as the “Disney guru.”


“May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go. . .”

March is the month of St. Patrick, shamrocks, and the proverbial pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow.  No Disney movie captures the spirit of Ireland like Darby O’Gill and the Little People.  You may not know that this movie resulted in Walt’s only acting appearance on the Disneyland TV show.  He starred as himself in an episode entitled “I Captured the King of the Leprechauns” on May 29, 1959.

The movie Darby O’Gill and the Little People starred an unknown young actor named Sean Connery.  Mr. Connery, of course, later gained fame as suave British secret agent James Bond, 007.  But Sean Connery isn’t the only 007 to also appear in a Disney movie.  Can you name the other actor who played James Bond AND starred in a Disney movie, and which Disney movie he appeared in?

The month’s winner will receive a one-year’s subscription to www.Touringplans.com.  Submit your answer to ddlriddle@thedisneydrivenlife.com by midnight, March 31.  May the luck o’ the Irish be with ye!
