I Can't Blog, I'm Too Excited!

There are a lot of interesting stories to blog about in the world of Disney this week. There's the maiden voyage of Disney Cruise Lines' amazing new ship, the Disney Dream, from Port Canaveral, Florida (the Disney Geek gives a nice tour of the ship here). On the flip side, there's the curious non-story about the Dream maybe kinda getting too close to another cruise ship (depending, of course, on who you talk to). In the feel-good file, the Chilean miners are finally going on their promised trip to Walt Disney World. On the movie front, the Diane Lane horse and pony show Secretariat came out on video this week (it's still sitting in the Netflix envelope on my kitchen counter--I'll get to it...maybe).

But, all of this is taking a back seat now, because this weekend I'm at Disneyland!

I'm here for MiceChat's 6th anniversary celebration. It's a great time to get my Mickey on with some great friends and some terrific special events, including a meet and greet breakfast Saturday with the first president of Disneyland, Jack Lindquist. He'll be signing his new book In Service to the Mouse. Sources tell me there will also be a special appearance by a high-ranking VIP inside the Disney organization. I've been sworn to secrecy, but rest assured I'll have plenty of pictures and coverage of the event.

Aside from the MiceChat festivities, it's a busy weekend at the park with the premiere of the new The Magic, the Memories and You nighttime show in front of It's a Small World and the reopening of the Blue Sky Cellar preview center at Disney California Adventure (spotlighting the new Little Mermaid attraction opening at DCA this spring). The Disney Gallery will also be launching their "Magic on the Water" exhibit tomorrow.

There's lots of fun stuff going on and I've got my comfy shoes on and the camera batteries charged. Stay tuned...
