Share This!

Cold, cold, go away. You aren’t wanted by me today. I thought that groundhog said spring was coming early this year. Could have fooled me, what about you?

This week the passing of another Disney legend, The Walt Disney Company making it on two very prestigious lists, and more.

In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors

The Walt Disney Company lost another legend this past week. Dave Smith, the founder of the Walt Disney Archives has passed away. Our thoughts are with his family.

Looks like we may be getting our next nugget of information next week about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Who else is ready?

Fast Company has named Disney as the most innovative company for 2019.

Speaking of accolades. Disney has been named the most “intimate” brand among consumers in MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2019 Study, moving up four spots from 2018. The annual study is a comprehensive ranking of brands based on emotion.

Netflix has cancelled the last two remaining Marvel series – Jessica Jones and The Punisher. But Marvel hints they may not be done. (Personally, I think we’ll see each and every one turn up on Disney+, but that’s just me. What about you?)

I was perusing fun Disney themed recipes this week and found this adorable hidden Mickey cake! I think I’ll make one this weekend.
