"Disney U" features many informative & hilarious stories about how things really work behind-the-scenes at the Mouse House
Did you need a distraction from all of the sad news coming out of Boston tonight? I know that I do. Which is why -- rather than watch that footage of the explosion at the marathon's line yet again -- I picked up a copy of Doug Lipp 's terrific tome, " Disney U: How Disney University develops...

When it comes to D23's Fanniversary events, it's all about making those connections
So what does it actually take for D23 to pull together those Fanniversary events that they've been presenting around the country for the past few weeks?

Is Brad Bird's "Tomorrowland" movie about that "UFOs are real" TV show which Walt Disney Productions almost made back in the 1950s?

The "UFOs are real" documentary that Walt Disney Studios almost made
I have long been a fan & supporter of Didier Ghez 's "Walt 's People" books , that series of paperbacks which collects amazing interviews with Disney Legends. But with Volume 11 of this series, Ghez has truly out-done himself. This 630-page book features 36 separate interviews which...

"Be Our Guest" features an unvarnished take on Disney Company history
I have to admit that It's been kind of amusing to watch the reaction (both here and elsewhere around the Web) that Tuesday's "What's really behind the sudden change in Disney Parks & Resorts' facial hair policy" story has been getting. With all sorts of would-be Disney scholars...

What's really behind the sudden change in Disney Parks & Resorts' facial hair policy?

Great advice & flying Twinkies rain down in Don Hahn's "Brain Storm: Unleashing Your Creative Self"
Welcome to June. That time of year when many of us struggle to find the perfect graduation present. That thoughtful, well-chosen item which will then make an impression on the newly capped-and-gowned. Luckily, Disney Editions has - just yesterday, in fact - released a book that (I think, anyway) will...

"Disneyland Through the Decades" offers a different take on this theme park's fabled history
When so much has already been written about Disneyland , how would you then go about putting together a brand-new book about the Happiest Place on Earth? That was the challenge that Jeff Kurtti faced when the folks at Disney Editions approached him last year about possibly putting together a new hardcover...

How Disney conjured up a live-action version of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"
The tale of the Sorcerer's Apprentice and The Walt Disney Company have been intertwined ever since Walt Disney invited famed conductor Leopold Stokowski to come join him for dinner at Chasen's . Which is where the old Mousetro supposedly asked the Maestro if he'd be interested in working with Disney...
