Fastpass to History – Mickey Mouse Explains The Art

Fastpass to History – Mickey Mouse Explains The Art

I was recently reading about how much Walt Disney loved the National Geographic Magazine and how much it was used for reference during the creation of all early Disney movies.    After hearing that Walt was featured in the magazines August 1963 addition I had to hit eBay to purchase it.

Walt National GeographicIn the magazine there are three amazing views of Walt Disney’s world.   The first of these is the “Walt Disney, Genius of Laughter and Learning” by Melville Bell Grosvenor which takes a look at the legacy of Walt Disney.   “Walter Elias Disney was a genius who brought laughter and knowledge to the world in a distinctive American way” sums it up.     The second article and main article on Walt is “The Magic Worlds of Walt Disney” by Robert De Roos.   This 40+ page article is filled with pictures and takes us into the movies, theme parks, Worlds Fairs, and pretty much everything on Walt’s mind at the time.   As part of this large article there is a section titled “Animation, Mickey Mouse explains the art to Mr. G.O. Graphic” which I found fun and interesting as it has Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Chip and Dale and many more Disney friends explain the animation process.

Here are the 9 simple steps it takes to create a Disney animated movie in 1960’s technology:

Hidden Mickey Monday – Outside the Parks

Hidden Mickey Monday – Outside the Parks

Our Hidden Mickey this week comes from a location outside the parks.    Our previous Hidden Mickey’s focused on places in the parks, but how fun is it to find a Hidden Mickey in a random place outside the parks???    We recently purchased a beach house on Vilano Beach in FL.   Vilano is a beautiful laid back community just outside of St Augustine.  If you haven’t visited, be sure to add it to your bucket list.    The house is in need of a lot of TLC, so my weekends are booked.    Just this past week we quickly packed the car and headed down to escape the ice and snow quickly engulfing the Atlanta Area.   As we were working in the garage my wife pointed out these holes that are on the back side of the garage door.   After seeing this, we knew that we had bought the right place.
