The kid in me still enjoys wearing Band-Aids. Nothings makes a boo-boo better than a kiss from mom and a fun Band-Aid. They have come a long way from the beige ones from my childhood. Today, Band-Aids come in a variety of colors and characters. Disney is well represented in the Band-Aid line. There are Mickey Mouse, Muppets, Cars, Princess, Phineas and Ferb, Disney Fairies, and Spider-Man.
Which one is your favorite? Do you hide your Disney Band-Aids from your children in order for them not use all of the Disney Band-Aids (LOL)?
Everyone knows the Muppets. This group of fuzzy, goggle-eyed puppets has been delighting audiences worldwide since even before the debut of the Muppet show in 1976. The Muppets were “born” when Jim and his future wife Jane Nebel created a five minute puppet show on a Washington TV station called “Sam and Friends.” Famous Muppet “Kermit” was conceived from a character on the show, but he nowhere resembled the famous frog we know today.
Jim Henson was much like Walt Disney – a dreamer and a doer. Walt created a magical world of cartoon characters and fairytales, Jim’s magical world consisted of lovable, cuddly puppets. And like Walt, Jim brought out the best in his workers and was an inspiration to all who knew him. Even at home with his five children; Jim was as playful and good-natured as the Muppets he conceived.
My three previous trips to Walt Disney World as an adult have been planned completely by myself with the exception of my foodie husband usually picking out the places in which we will dine. For this year’s trip, I got the added bonus of my son being old enough to have a lot to say about what he wants to do in Walt Disney World this year!
Here is your Disney Dozen for the things my almost 5-year-old Neurotic Disney Kid, must do on his trip to Walt Disney World this year, in his own words.
Out with the old year, in with the new, right? In all honesty, I can say that 2011 may be the year I am most looking forward to in the world of Disney films. There are great stories, interesting plots and lots of intrigue. And that’s just in the studio offices. So let’s take a look at a few of the different types of films coming out from Disney and their associated studios in 2011.
Being an aspiring chef, the Swedish Chef from the Muppets is one of my favorite characters. This is one of my favorite videos that the Henson Company has come up with involving the Swedish Chef. Here you will see him making popcorn shrimp using popcorn and shrimp in a very funny and entertaining way.
