Make Disney friends with me if you like reading about Disney with a bit of snark and like the iPhone, too — #FF Follow @DisneyEcho (me) on twitter ^_^ I write about WDW, Disneyland and Disney movies… and I don’t spew their press releases.

Disney is hoping that “Let the memories begin” will convince you to take a Disney vacation in the next 12 months. Do you think it will work? Frankly, I think they’ve done much better and this is lame.
I’m just sayin’…
At 3:27 into this video you can hear the King of Cartoons start introducing that episode’s animated feature “Let the cartoon….. begin!” YouTube video

Good news! Disney is far enough along in the development of their first official app for Disney theme parks that they are sharing screenshots from the forthcoming app and have written more about it here on Disney.com
This Disney app will have everything we’ve been wanting from an official Disney app for the parks: actual wait times based directly on Disney Parks information; real-time FASTPASS availability so you’ll know if they are still available for attractions you’re interested in before you make the trek to that part of the park;. if FASTPASS is available, the app will show you remotely the next return time. For example, if you can still get a FASTPASS, the application will indicate something like this… FP: 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Park maps? The app’s got that covered — with GPS to boot!. You’ll not only see where you want to go, but also where you are in the park at that moment. Then use the “getting there” option to find the best way to get there. You can zoom in and out on the map to make it easy to find a restaurant, attraction, restroom or character greeting location.
Now for the bad news. Disney’s upcoming parks app is for Verizon only. Not the iPhone.
Why is Disney ignoring the iPhone!?!
Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs is on the Disney board of directors and is the largest Disney shareholder. Is Disney’s mobile division trying to make him mad?
Are they trying to make the millions of iPhone users mad? What’s up with that? Let’s hope they make an iPhone-compatible version soon as well as one for all the iPod touch users!
What do you think about this? Please leave a comment!

We were walking along in Disneyland and then we found a bit of WDW:
This looks like a cover to a water meter or water valve under the walkway, but we don’t know for sure. And if the WDW on it stands for Walt Disney World, what is it doing at Disneyland? And why are the WDW letters upside down compared to the other letters on it?
I’m just throwing this out there into cyberspace. I don’t know the answers. But if anyone seeing this knows or has some ideas, please leave a comment!
