Weekly Round Up: April 3
Tracy and Melissa

We HATE April Fool’s Day. We’re never fooled, and we’re even more rarely amused. However, one April Fool’s post this week made us laugh out loud: Parkeology‘s post about an exciting new addition on Buena Vista Street in Disney’s California Adventure Park. Four thumbs up!

True Fact: Melissa can’t find her Imagineering Field Guides to Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios. She is crying in her corn flakes. They are real tears (and they’re ruining the corn flakes).

In happier news, we are proud to announce the winner of our Facebook contest and a copy of the Passporter Free Book:  Becky Ginther. We will contact Becky on Facebook this evening. Are you interested in another contest?? Tracy’s been putting together a new challenge for you …

In other Mouse on the Mind news, we’re looking for another new columnist. If you’re interested in crafts and diy projects with a Disney-theme, we want you on our team! E-mail Melissa@MouseontheMind.com for details.

Us … Elsewhere
On  the Suitcase Scholar, Tracy’s added some great content this week, including a review of Domilise’s in New Orleans and a discussion about travel envy. (We’ve both got it!)

Melissa Sue  sunk into a deep depression upon realizing that her name wasn’t gracing the Internets this week. Also, her books are still missing. Where did they go?!

Our Favorites This Week
The Disney Blog wrote about the “Hidden” Mickeys on the manhole covers in WDW. Glad to see someone setting the record straight!

Excited about Art of Animation? Us too!! Inside the Magic has a great first-look at the new lobby. We love the individual check-in desks.

Chip and Co. has a great craft project for you: DIY Disney coasters.

The Disney Hipsters offer up the perfect recipe for drinking around the world. For what it’s worth, the official Mouse on the Mind Drinking Around the World Policy states that all such adventures must start AND finish in Mexico.

AJ’s talking extinct Disney delicacies this week on Disney Food Blog. Add us to the list of those worrying that Chai Cream at Sanaa will soon go the way of the lemon curd at Jiko.

Greg at Disney Obsession shared a breathtaking photo of France at night.

Have you seen Song of the South? Gary Chambers has, and he wrote about it on The Disney-Driven Life this week. What’s your take??

Estelle, the total freaking genius behind This Happy Place Blog, has some awesome ideas about bringing more Muppet into Hollywood Studios. Melissa has suggested #4 (and variations on that theme) to her husband at least 30 times, but he seems nonplussed.

    Awesome, I’m so excited! Thank you for having the contest, the trivia was a lot of fun!

    I’m going to be trying out those Disney coasters, they’re a great idea and I have tons of maps and stuff that I can’t bear to throw away!

    As for Song of the South – I have seen it. I didn’t find it offensive, it just felt a little old fashioned. The Brer Rabbit stories were fun, but the rest of it was rather underwhelming. I put my full thoughts on my blog here: http://beckydisneyquest.blogspot.com/2011/03/song-of-south.html

      Thanks, Becky!! We’ll share this in next week’s post!!

      The coaster idea is just brilliant. I wish I was even the slightest bit crafty because I would make those in a second!

  2. Thank you for the mention of the photograph!
