Tours are a great way to experience even more magic at Walt Disney Parks. Today's your review comes to you from Disneyland and, short of the Southern California Adventures by Disney trip, is the most comprehensive tour that you can take in Disneyland. We took the tour in March 2015 and like all Disney tours, your experience may vary slightly depending on your tour guide, refurbishment schedule, and changes to the tour itinerary.

What’s On Your Disney Bucket List?

It's that time of year when everyone is making a list and checking it twice. Currently I have a lot of lists, but my Disney Bucket List is a work in progress. I've been visiting the Walt Disney World Resort since I was a wee little one (way back in 1974) and I'll admit that there are many, many things I have yet to experience at Disney World.

Disney History: The Nixon Years

Walt Disney's love of America and fascination with U.S. Presidents, particularly Abraham Lincoln, is well documented and if you've followed along with our history articles here at Walt Disney World for Grownups, you know that Nikita Khrushchev, but what about the American chief executives?

Disney History: Song of the South

Despite earning a seemingly permanent home in the famed "Disney Vault" due to its reliance on racial stereotypes to tell a story, Song of the South has an enduring legacy in Walt Disney World, even if many guests don't recognize the origin of some of Disney's most iconic elements. The Reconstruction Era film centers on Uncle Remus, a black man who is presumably a recently freed slave, telling stories to the children.

Classic Disney Attractions Influenced By The 1964 World's Fair

When Disneyland opened in 1955, Walt Disney's team of imagineers lacked the tools and knowledge to create most of the attractions that we see in the parks today. Many of the technological concepts that fuel todays attractions simply didn't exist yet and many exist today because of the research and experimentation of those early imagineers - with a little bit of outside help.

Yes, Again! Why I Keep Going Back to Walt Disney World

Disney fans that travel frequently to the Parks generally experience one great frustration at home that unites us. No, it's not the desire to get back down to our Walt Disney World home. It's not the wallet draining price increases when we begrudgingly fork over the cash for our next trip. What it is - is the friends, co-workers, and family members who just don't understand how we can spend so much time and money traveling to the same place.
