    So how long has Donny Osmond been closely associated with The Walt Disney Company?

  • Blog Post: Why For is “Captain EO” really returning to Disneyland Park?

    First up, RedRyderBB writes in to say: Disneyland can’t be serious about bringing back “Captain EO.” I saw that 3D movie when it first opened in 1987 and once was really enough. “EO” was just a glorified music video. And even MTV doesn’t show music videos anymore. So what’s the point of bringing “Captain...

    Nancy and I got the news yesterday afternoon as we were driving down to NYC. We’d stopped to gas up the car in Tolland, CT when Angela called on the cell to say that Roy E. Disney had died . This was obviously sad news. But -- to be honest -- not exactly unexpected. Ever since word leaked back in June...
  • Blog Post: Tube Tuesday: Xmas marks the spot for the Muppets in 2009

    Thanksgiving is traditionally a time when we reconnect with friends & family. And this year, The Walt Disney Company must be feeling especially thankful for the way the public passionately re-embraced the Muppets last week. I mean, who would have thought that a viral video (which was shot on the...

    This is Sardi’s . The 82 year-old restaurant that was once the white-hot center of the celebrity universe. Photo by Nancy Stadler By that I mean: You weren’t really considered a star in NYC unless your caricature adorned the wall of this exclusive eatery. Which is why -- as you wander the halls at 234...
