This week would have been Walt Disney’s 116 birthday.  Thank you for being the visionary you were and for coming up with the creations you did that have helped to make my life what it is. I think I can say with certainty that I wouldn’t be living the life I do without you. So, Happy Birthday Walt.

This week, we look at the latest Disney trend (rose gold ears were so last month), look at where you can dine with Marvel characters (hint, it’s not where you’d expect) and more.
