I've seen these bags up close. Her craftsmanship is excellent. Go check her out on Etsy.

A good friend of mine has combined a hobby with a passion and come up with some very good results. Those of you who have stayed at the Disneyland Hotel might recognize the fabric used in these bags (see photo above). These bags come in a wide variety of sizes and feature different Disneyland attractions. (And, don't worry - the fabric was obtained legally).

I hate it when the Disney Company gets lazy. Case in point, the above Fantasmic! postcard that was available for purchase at Disneyland. This card contains images of Jafar, as the snake, from Aladdin, Hades from Hercules and Scar from the Lion King. The only problem is that none of these characters appear in the Disneyland version of Fantasmic! Either this card was originally intended to be sold at Walt Disney World and they just stamped Disneyland on the front thereby allowing it to be sold in both Parks. Or, somebody in the Art and/or Marketing Depts was too lazy to actually research the art work.

I have numerous 2nd and even 3rd edition books in my collection in addition to the original 1st editions. Quite often these later editions just contain new covers, corrections of some typos or some pictures are swapped out. This is probably the reason I've been dragging my feet on purchasing the 3rd edition of Dave Smith's Disney A to Z.
The 1st edition of Disney A to Z is usually my "go-to" book when I need to look something up. And, to-date, it has not failed me. On a recent trip to Disneyland, I noticed a copy of the 3rd ed. and couldn't help noticing the size difference between the two books. According to the inside flap it contains "almost 1000 new entries and more than 1,250 changes to existing entries." And a quick check of the page count has the 1st edition coming in at 564 pages while the 3rd is up to a whopping 764 pages.
Maybe I won't be so quick to judge later editions.
