Weekly Round Up: February 5

Second Star to the Right Big Disney week!! They’re celebrating the Super Bowl all week long in Orlando (yawn), The Muppets sequel got a name and a Tina Fey (woot!) and Walt Disney Imagineer Tony Baxter stepped down (womp womp).

The best news this week came from Richard Tobin of Mouse Troop: The Reluctant Dragon is now on Netflix!! Yay!!!

On a personal note, I had an awesome dinner and hang out with Estelle and James from This Happy Place Blog this past weekend, and today is Estelle’s birthday!! Head over to This Happy Place Blog and give her some birthday comment love!

And if you’d like to give her your birthday wishes in person, plan to attend our ultra-amazing North East Meet Up on February 23. Click for details and stay tuned to the blog for more info.

Happy Birthday
Congratulations to Keith Lapinig, who won the Up-inspired charms during the final of our Birthday Celebration Giveaway. That’s it for me … but you can still win awesome prizes from Mouse on the Mind, This Happy Place and the Disney Hipsters during our North East Meet in Brooklyn on February 23. We’ll be releasing more details in the coming days, so stay tuned!
