  • Blog Post: Monday Mouse Watch: Insecurity & in-jokes

    You’ll find signs like this all over the Disney lot. Photo by Jeff Lange “No lookie-loos.” In Disney speak, this means: “Employees only.” Translation: If you’re a guest and/or a visitor on the lot, you really shouldn’t be nosing around.

  • Blog Post: Why For?

    First up, T.S. writes in to ask: Dear Jim: I was wondering if you could clear up a Disneyland -related mystery for me.

  • Blog Post: Monday Mouse Watch: With great power comes ... some surprising limitations

    There's this great story that I heard recently. One that (I think) speaks volumes about the way the Walt Disney Company is really run. This tale reportedly dates back to when Michael Eisner was still running the Mouse House. To be specific, this story deals with a meeting that was once held at Walt Disney...
  • Blog Post: A rather theatrical edition of "Why For"

    First up, Leslie C. writes in to say: Your "Tarzan" story on Monday must have really struck a nerve with Disney Theatrical.
