We’ve been spending a lot of time around property, checking out the resorts and parks for Christmas (we are trying to get to 8 or so resorts tomorrow!)

Wayne Allwine, the voice of Disney’s Mickey Mouse for the past 30 years, has died from complications of diabetes. He was 62.
Allwine is the third person to voice the beloved character. He started in 1977 working on “The New Mickey Mouse Clubhouse“. Through the years, he has provided countless hours giving a voice to Mickey, including the film, “Mickey’s Christmas Carol” and even for the “Kingdom Hearts” video game series. He was named a Disney Legend in 2008. Wayne was also a good friend to the Disney fan community appearing at numerous NFFC and Disneyana conventions to give a face to the voice of the famous mouse.
Allwine leaves behind a wife, Russi Taylor, who is the current voice of Minnie Mouse. They were married in Hawaii in 1991.
The staff at JeffLangeDVD wish the best for the Allwine family, and their friends during this hard time.
