Another week bites the dust here at Mouse on the Mind. We’re gearing up for our big Leap Day Live Blog. So far we have several participants, but we are absolutely still looking for more contributors. If you or someone you know will be in a Disney Park on February 29, please sign up to be part of the Live Blog.
This Friday, we’ll also be kicking off a new Facebook contest. Want to win some awesome Passporter swag and have some fun with other Disney fans? Head on over to Facebook and “like” Mouse on the Mind for your chance to win!
Melissa Sue also wrote a review of Boatwright’s Dining Hall on Disney Food Blog. And several of Melissa Sue’s photos from Hollywood Studios appear in this week’s The Darkroom column on Studio’s Central.
As she packed for her upcoming cruise to the Caribbean, Tracy was thinking about how to maintain her new exercise routine while traveling. She also revised her “Why I Travel” manifesto (spoiler alert: she refers to Melissa Sue as a “souvenir,” and Melissa’s not sure how she feels about it.)
Our Favorites This Week
