Disney Fact #56

Donald loves… Donna?

That’s (sort of) correct. Donald Duck’s love, Daisy, made her debut in a 1937 short called “Don Donald”. Her name was Donna, but this is the only time she ever appeared with that name.

She was not meant to be a recurring character, and after that appearance, it would be three years before Donald had any love interest. But when he did finally get lucky in love, it was with the newly named Daisy Duck.

…maybe Donna and Daisy aren’t the same person – but twins! In that case, what happened to Donna? Does that make Daisy… the EVIL twin?!

No, no. Their love is real!


What’s better than a Disney song… or 21…

Good morning! If you’re utterly bored of the music on the radio and need a refreshing new playlist idea, check out this post I discovered. It lists 21 of some “under-appreciated” Disney songs – some that I had forgotten about. Such as…

No, listen to it again! Tarzan wasn’t one of my favorites until I got older. The lyrics are great and the song is really moving.

ADVICE TIME… If you do take some (or all) of these suggestions (which I am planning to add to my own Disney playlist), maybe skip ‘Baby Mine’ from Dumbo, unless you don’t mind your mascara running down your face when you arrive at work 🙂

My eyes begin to water if I look at this too long. 😦

This post is being re-blogged from another blogger site, It’s “All in WDW”. There are some amazing sketches of Walt Disney World’s newest park, Avatar Land, based off the hit movie ‘Avatar’.

It's "All in WDW"

I keep thinking about how our Animal Kingdom Favorites “tournaments” will be different once “Avatar Land” is complete.

Reportedly, it is “… expected to span several acres and … feature multiple rides and attractions, entertainment, audio-animatronics, 3-D holograms as well as retail, food and beverage outlets.”

Back in October of 2013, “[a]t the first-ever D23 Expo in Japan, [Disney] shared an early glimpse of the plans for AVATAR …”

Reporting on Disney Parks Blog, they advised that “… in the world of AVATAR, guests will encounter awe-inspiring floating mountains and wander through a nighttime jungle of bioluminescent plants that are alive with light and sound.

Guests will also discover what it feels like to soar into the sky riding a Banshee.”  Now, that will be an attraction to experience.  In fact, Wikipedia reports it as “… [a] flying E-ticket simulator attraction where guests will learn to fly with a mountain Banshee.”

Also, Wikipedia…
