    I know that Disney presents Winsor McCay Awards to important Disney personalities, but I cannot find any info as to the connection to Disney. Did he have an influence on Uncle Walt? Anyone know?

    Muppet Vision 3-D is the only 3-D attraction at Disney World where the 3-D glasses are actually called 3-D glasses. At It's Tough to be a Bug they are called Bug Eyes, and at Honey, I Shrunk the Audience they are called Safety Goggles.

    Disney Fact of the Day

    September 12

    In August 1965 Walt Disney met with Beatle manager Brian Epstein to discuss the possibility of the Fab Four performing songs for the upcoming animated film The Jungle Book. (Later John Lennon nixed the idea so Walt ended up using semi-soundalikes playing four vultures in the film.)
