"Disney During World War II" and "Hope: Entertainer of the Century" showcase two Hollywood legends who did everything they could for the troops
As a former servicemember, I have to admit that I'm always intrigued by how various entertainment entities observe Veterans Day. Take -- for example -- PBS .

50th anniversary display of 1964 - 1965 New York World's Fair items was one of the highlights of this year's Big E
I don't know about you folks. But weekends here are all about getting away. Even if it's just for a little while. Turning off my laptop & pushing back from my desk. Getting out of the house for even a few hours with the hope that a temporary change of venue might help Nancy & I recharge...

Do you wish that Comic-Con could come to you? Then check out D23's touring Fanniversary celebrations
Go ahead. Admit it. After hearing about all that cool stuff Comic-Con attendees got to see last week, you're now wishing that you'd gone down to San Diego. But then again, when you factor in what it would have cost to travel to Southern California (Not to mention that all 130,000 badges which...

So which Hollywood legend was actually responsible for the creation of "it's a small world"? Would you believe Mommy Dearest?
I realize that everyone out there in Online-land is already getting ready for the long Fourth of July Weekend.

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train literally puts a new face on the Disney theme park experience
When it comes to the Walt Disney Parks & Resorts , it's kind of a tradition that good enough isn't really good enough. Case in point: " Pirates of the Caribbean ." When Walt Disney first envisioned bringing buccaneers into his first theme park in the late 1950s, he was thinking...
