I am currently working on a very special DVD project featuring some recently discovered vintage Walt Disney World footage circa 1986! I am enjoying working on this very much and being able to rediscover some things I never thought I would get to enjoy again. Just a few highlights are the original Disney Shopping Village, The Contemporary and Polynesian Village before the Grand Floridian was built (although you see the land being cleared), Discovery Island, classic Epcot Center, Magic Kingdom and much more. Watch this site for more details on this exciting project! Also, go to Mousesteps for a new contest for an Epcot Flower and Garden Screensaver, the contest ends June 3rd.

I am very happy with the reaction to my latest DVD release, Jeff Lange’s Disney-MGM Studios Parade Classics – 20th Anniversary Collectors Edition (for more information or to order, click HERE)! Last week was a huge one for Walt Disney World, I had a wonderful trip and have another update that came out of it.
Walt Disney World rolled out the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade without the Villains Float, but with many more characters interacting with guests. Characters like Geppetto also are in the street and not on the float.
