Some very interesting Disney things floating in the ether this week. Enjoy.
Lids hats have some new Disney items to cheer on your favorite baseball team. With plenty of pink ones for those of you who like pink hats. I’m showing a Mets hat, though it pains me, as a kudo to my friend John Cropp, who might be the biggest Mets/Disney fan and former cast member I’ve ever known. Click here for the link.
IO9 posted an interesting piece about some of Disney’s stranger educational films. Check it out here.
More behind the scenes of Star Wars from The Chive. Warning, The Chive isn’t for everyone.
Thanks to my friend Julie McKillip for sharing this great muppet shirt design with me.

Just Off Main Street regular visitor Sarah Bagley vacationed at the Disneyland Resort in California recently and shared some great photos of some of the new attractions at Disney’s California Adventure. Many, many thanks to Sarah for reaching out and sharing her visit with us!!!
The new Little Mermaid adventure dark ride is getting rave reviews. Looks like we’re in for a treat when the Walt Disney World version opens next year.
The new gate. Looks familiar no?
Cars Land looks to be one of the more exciting additions to the parks Disney fans have seen in a long time.
Some signage around the park for coming attractions:
Goofy’s Sky School. A lots been mentioned online that this is just a cheap off-the-shelf coaster (meaning it wasn’t designed for the park) with a facade, but reports are coming in that it is in fact a lot of fun!
The Mickey Wheel. Note all the infrastructure for the World of Color in the foreground.
What might be my favorite new addition, Redwood Creek. Where you can earn your Wilderness Explorer badges! My mom will be tickled.
Silly Symphonies Swing. DCA has gone out of its way to honor Disney’s earliest creations and projects.
And lastly, Toy Story Mania, currently the longest wait on both coasts. I’ve still not ridden it.
My heartfelt thanks to Sarah and her family for sharing these pictures with me and in turn, you. I encourage you to send in your Disney pics to share down the road, and as always…
Just back from our Nation’s Capitol for a few days, where I of course found some Disney love which I talked about here.

Going on vacation with an infant can be trying, there are many things you may never even think of that you may take for granted at home.

As a breastfeeding advocate, I was happy to run across this blog post with some good ideas for taking a break while in the parks to feed your child. Click here to have a look.
