The Land of Disney


This is a parody of adventure movie trailers. It was shot on iPhone at Disneyland in Anaheim, California and edited in iMovie. Enjoy it on YouTube or in higher quality on Vimeo.

Disney and Yahoo might make an Internet TV deal

According to the Wall Street Journal and other sources, The Walt Disney Co. is considering making some of its television content available for Yahoo’s Internet TV service.

I think it is something the forward-thinking Walt Disney would have done had he lived long enough to still have control of his company in today’s world.

What are your thoughts? Agree or disagree?

Walt Disney’s 1935 8-Page Animation Manifesto

This link takes you to where they discuss an eight-page letter Walt Disney himself wrote in 1935 to the director of an art school (today called Cal Arts, where a lot of Disney future animators went to school to learn their crafts) where he was trying to encourage studying animation as an art form. 

The person posting the actual documents of the eight page letter was blown away by the eloquence of it coming from Walt Disney himself, and how that resonates for films of today.

Disney Parks And Apple Products Are Designed With Similar User Experiences In Mind


Andy Ihnatko, personal tech writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, gave the keynote address Wednesday at the MacTech conference in Los Angeles. He spoke about various features of the upcoming new version of Mac OS X, Lion, including how Apple is making it to be similar to Walt Disney’s philosophy of the experiences Guests have at Disney theme parks.

“Disney wanted to make sure park visitors didn’t have a bad time when they showed up to the parks, so instead, he went over the line and didn’t give them permission to have a bad time. In the same way, Apple is locking away and removing any parts of the computer that might cause problems in any way. Traditional users might be disappointed to lose that control, but users in general appreciate just not having to worry about settings that seem to only harm them when wrong.”

That’s an interesting insight and explains why I enjoy being at Disney parks as well as using Apple devices like the MacBook, IPhone and iPad.

You can read the full article I’ve quoted from here.

About the Disney Echo

This website is not affiliated with any part of The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Echo at is your interactive online magazine to discover new wonders and share magical Disney memories.

The display on this page is set up to show the posts in reverse chronological order of when they were posted originally, so if you want to read the reports from the beginning, go to the last post on the last page and work forward. The first entry about the Koster family's July 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by clicking here and the first entry about their Easter 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by selecting this link.

That link goes to the very first travel-related article on this website: Welcome to our Trip Report.

The entry made after that first one is found after clicking the link named "Our Vacation Plans At-A-Glance" and that link is found above and below the first entry.

The third entry is similarly found after clicking the link above and below the second one, where the link is named "Packing Up"

One can read all the travel-related entries in the order they were posted by going to the next entry and the next entry the same way. Otherwise, this website defaults to displaying the most-recently-posted entries followed by older entries below it on the page as well as on the pages after it.
