Dapper Day: Disney’s Ultimate Throwback

By Lindsey Allmon

On my last vacation to Disney World I wore the exact same thing every single day: Shorts, a Disney tank top, sneakers and sunglasses. The rest of my family wore a similar uniform, as did ninety nine percent of the rest of the population of Disney at the time. And why not? A summer in Florida is broiling hot and a day at Disney requires miles of walking. It only makes sense that you would be comfortable. However, when the designers of Disney initially imagined the attendees of the parks, shorts and tanks were simply not up to par with their expectations. Now one group is trying to bring style back to the Disney parks. Continue after the page break to learn more about the event that has everyone dressed to the nines: Dapper Day...

Main Street Windows: A Complete Guide to Disney's Whimsical Tributes

I'd like to share with you a fantastic new book by the amazing Jeff Heimbuch called Main Street Windows: A Complete Guide to Disney's Whimsical Tributes. As you walk down Main Street, U.S.A., have you ever looked up and wondered what the names on the windows mean? Although the tradition of honoring people with a window has been around since Disneyland's opening day, there has never been a comprehensive list of them all....

Until now.

In this book, you'll find a complete guide to all of the whimsical tributes at every Magic Kingdom park throughout the world, complete with full color photos! Grab yourself a copy of Jeff's amazing new book from the link below:

Making of: The Jungle Cruise

By Keith Mahne

In a Disneyland full of Splash Mountains, Space Mountains and Big Thunder Mountains, sometimes the older, so called "classic" attractions go overlooked. One such attraction is the Jungle Cruise. By far the most campy yet humorous attraction in the parks, depending on your guide that is, the Jungle Cruise has gone through a number of enhancements and refurbishments over its history and yet still remains one of the most beloved experiences of the parks. Today, Disney Avenue has another fantastic and picture-packed Making of article all about the incredible Jungle Cruise.
