One of our favorite things about Disneyland is walking down Main Street, U.S.A and hearing the smooth sounds of the Dapper Dans. During Mickey’s Halloween Party, the Dapper Dans are materialized into the Cadaver Dans and they sing Halloween-themed tunes while floating around the Rivers of America. if you haven’t had a had to check out their performance or just want to experience it again, check out our video below!

I Put A Spell On You

Speaking of Hocus Pocus, Instagram is one of the tools that has allowed us to close the gap between seeing amazing art and connecting with the artist. Artist, Savanna Rodriguez, is constantly posting really great work to her Instagram but her recent attempt at replicating the spell book from the film Hocus Pocus left many of us in awe! The detail in her work is fantastic! below you’ll find her post showing off the final product and two posts outlining how she put it together just in time for Halloween! If you’re not already doing so, make sure to click through to her Instagram and give her a follow!

Bringing The Magic Home

Visiting Disneyland can sadden many people when it comes time to head home. But what if home had a little piece of Disneyland to get you by until your next visit?  That’s exactly what a locomotive engineer from Utah did!

Over a decade ago, Travis Larson, made the decision to recreate the exterior structures of Fantasyland inside of his basement. The recreation includes the facade of Snow White’s Scary Adventures, Pinnocchio’s Daring Journey, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride Peter Pan’s Flight and Geppetto’s Workshop and the Village Haus Restaurant. Everything has been built at a 77% scale of the original size to fit within the area of his basement but what he has done will blow you away! Take a look at the tour he provided below.

Check out Travis’ YouTube channel where he’ll be posting more “how-to” style videos in the event that you’re interested in recreating this in your own home!

There has been a long standing tradition of creating portraits for Mickey Mouse dating back to 1949 for milestone birthdays. We couldn’t find photos of the portraits but here are some samples of the previous portraits:

Recently Mickey’s latest painting by Mark Henn was revealed to the world. Check out this timelapse of the process:

Until next time! °o°
