Weekly Round Up: January 17


We've started our Countdown to Fun!

Here at Mouse on the Mind, we’re gearing up for our awesome Leap Day trip!

We’re looking forward to meeting those of you who’ll be in Disney World during our Meetup in Epcot on February 28, and hope you’ll join us for some fish and chips from Yorkshire County Fish Shop.

Not planning to meet, but want to be part of our Leap Day Live Blog? If so, share your e-mail address so we can send you instructions for posting to the blog. We’ll have that up and running by Feb. 1.

It’s been a pretty quiet week around Mouse on the Mind. Here’s what’s been on our radar …

Mouse on the Mind Around the Web
Tracy wrote about her penchant for solo travel and her fears about touring with a group on The Suitcase Scholar.

Our Favorites This Week
If you’d never dream of leaving for the parks without your camera, you should check out The Disney Photography Blog’s  Main STREET Photography.  In his January 11th post, Corey gives examples of three different types of street photography that can be utilized on Main Street USA–or anywhere in WDW.

Main Street Gazette‘s Ryan has a beautiful photo gallery of concept art from the Magic of Disney Animation queue. And some great ideas for ways to “Celebrate Today” with the new RFID technology.

Shelley Caran wrote a guest post for Touring Plans about the new Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom game. We are big fans of Kim Possible, so we can’t wait to try this!  Look forward to a detailed review right here on Mouse on the Mind, sometime in early March!

Disney Parks Blog released images of some really cool upcoming tee-shirt designs. We’re a little obsessed with word clouds, and these are just too perfect to pass up. But, hey! Why no Pluto?

Nick Maglio posted two bits of Disneyana that caught Melissa’s eye on Disleelandia this week: first, a Haunted Mansion Bride vinylmayion and, two days later, a series of curious questions about the Seven Dwarfs, inspired by a PVC figurine.

At Studios Central (which helped us learn to love Disney’s Studios), Matt Hochberg has a great post about the best times to meet characters in his favorite park.  Thanks Matt–we’ll be taking your advice on our upcoming trip!

The Disney Blog’s John Frost reports on ports, announcing the very real possibility that the Disney Wonder will be moved from her current home base in LA to the port of Miami.  A huge cruise fan herself, Tracy has been following all Disney Cruise Line related news, and this news warms her east-coast-living heart.

Beth, the blogger mom behind A Disney Mom’s Thoughts, shared a great post filled with tips on how to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.  Thanks for the great list, Beth!  Hopefully one or both of us will be able to take your advice this coming fall!

We’ve found our nerd soulmates over at etckt. This week, they posted about the Periodic Table of Disney Elements. Very cool. We can’t wait to see the rest of the series!
