    Sorcery in the Sky was the closing fireworks show at the Disney-MGM Studios. It featured a large inflatable Sorceror Mickey that shot fireworks from his pointing finger. It was narrated by Vincent Price.

    In the 1930's and early 1940's Good Housekeeping magazine had a monthly page of Disney illustrations tied to a recent cartoon or animated feature release.

    Right after Disneyland opened, Walt Disney said: "We're gonna kick ourselves for not buying everything within a radius of ten miles around here."

    The Village Resorts consisted of villa type accomodations, from one bedroom units to townhouses. They were located on the land where Saratoga Springs DVC is today.

    Touchstone Pictures was developed by Ron Miller in 1984 so Disney could release more "mature" themed movies.

    I just want to leave you with this thought, that it's just been sort of a dress rehearsal and we're just getting started. So if any of you start resting on your laurels, I mean just forget it because ... we are just getting started.

    In the early 1970s, Walt Disney World had plans to build a Thai style hotel called the Asian Resort. It was to be built about midway between the Magic Kingdom and the Polynesian on the monorail line ... in a spot now occupied by the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    In 1946 a tough alley cat character appeared in Pluto's Kid Brother and another film, Cinderella had a cat with the same name. The name? Lucifer.

    Communicore: The two primary buildings known as East and West, contained a variety of exhibits, displays, shops, and restaurants. It was renamed Innoventions in July 1994.
