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)?
. . . I’ve been meaning to write you for some time. As a Disney shareholder, I want to pass along an idea that I feel will add to Disney’s profits to the shareholders while also providing more value to Disney’s loyal customers.
There was a time when Disney re-released its animated features to the theaters every seven years or so in order that a new generation of children could experience these classics. This practice ended shortly after VCRs and other home video players became popular. The feeling was that since the movies were available to watch in one’s home, releasing the movies in the theaters wouldn’t generate enough revenue to be worth the effort. However, I disagree and humbly suggest that the Walt Disney Company renew this practice and begin re-releasing its library of animated classics into theaters.
No matter where you go, you read stories about children being bullied. Schools across the country are working on programs to teach children how to react to bullying and how to avoid being a bully. The act of bullying has changed a lot over the years. These days we not only worry about kids being physically hit/kicked/punched/harmed, but emotionally picked on as well. Name calling is just the start of the taunting that children can do to each other.
With more than 3,500 more square feet than the old Lego Center, this newly renovated store opened this week. Of course, there are more of those iconic “Lego Statues” in addition to the classic Water Dragon in the lagoon and the “Tourist Family” we all remember. The Dragon remains the same, but our famous family has undergone a bit of an upgrade. If you recall the original family, they now are dressed as a Pirate, the Father has a Goofy hat and the daughter is dressed as Alice in Wonderland. To help jog your memory, I have included two pics of the family, past and present. The new statues around the perimeter of the store are simply amazing! A giant Black Dragon we know as Maleficent is squirting fire at a stalwart knight on a white horse. Around the corner, you’ll see Snow White kissing Dopey on the forehead, and in a magnificent piece of work: several of the Seven Dwarfs are coming out of their mine. And don’t miss the statue of Buzz Lightyear carrying Woody as he takes off.
When I was fourteen years old, I was booed by over 500 people. This occurred during my first year of high school, and my class was in the throes of Student Council elections for the following year. The gymnasium was the battleground for speeches, and in all likelihood, wasn’t the most conducive environment for civil political discourse, but because the school was new and still under construction, we were unceremoniously disposed to that echoing chamber of adolescent combat.
In this adorable video, Sandy Chang’s (NDM 223) youngest children, Violet (age 2) and Carter (age 5) reenact a scene as Hannah and Sid from Toy Story. As Sandy says, “We love all things Disney, and my kids incorporate Disney into their play on most days.” These kids are definitely living the Disney Driven Life!

My husband, my son (age 5) and I (Natalie H of Meet the Magic) just returned from our vacation aboard the Disney Dream. Following our fun there, we headed over to Disney World for a few night’s stay at the All Star Movies Resort. My son and I had previously stayed in the All Star Movies in the Toy Story building located right beside the main building back in September 2010. The room was very nice and very convenient. With this in mind, I booked this location for our stay after our Disney Dream fun.
The last few weeks have been extremely busy for me. I was graduating from college, moving out of my house (that’s a generous word for it), trying to find a job (still trying), and going on a family vacation to the most wonderful place on earth. But in the midst of it all I managed to wrangle my family into seeing the midnight showing of the highly anticipated Toy Story 3. After a great graduation dinner, my family and I watched a movie that was more relevant than I could have ever imagined.
