DISNEY FIX: MICKEY’S SOUNDSATIONAL PARTY

Hello everyone!  Just wanted to take a quick second to introduce myself.  My name’s Tommy and I’ve been working at this hotel for several years now.  I get the privilege to visit the parks once or twice a week, so I was asked to write about them so I can share a little bit of […]

DISNEY FIX: THE HAUNTED MANSION AND HOJO

The early 1960’s are near and dear to the HoJo and of course Disneyland. New attractions were underway at the park and the 10-year anniversary was coming up in 1965.

DISNEY FIX: TILT-SHIFT VIDEO EXPLAINED

Just because you’re not at a Disney Park doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be allowed to have a Disney Experience! The good folks that run the DisneyParks YouTube Channel must agree, because they posted something last week that lets those of us who are not physically in the Parks share in the Celebration! Isn’t that […]
