(See my other Disney related posts) – Here is something else to keep you occupied while you are ‘sheltering-in-place’. Many have recently had their planned trip to Disney canceled due to COVID19. Disney is helping to meet your enjoyment needs with virtual video experiences.
The most recent release in this series is “Get Ready to Launch on an Adventure that’s Simply Incredible.” This video is of the Incredicoaster at Disney California Adventure Park. There are other videos on the Disney YouTube channel. There is also a ride on Big Thunder Mountain at Disney World and Its a Small World. If you like Disney music there are videos for Beauty and the Beast and Disney on Broadway.
The Disney YouTube channel also has many videos. Included are a series of short videos giving virtual tours of Disney Imagineering. If you choose the Playlist of all of the Virtual Rides you will be rewarded with 24 virtual rides.

(See my other Disney and Star Wars related posts) – I have been hearing about and posting a few times about this new immersive Disney Star Wars resort for a while now. I am sure that the two days and nights at the resort will be expensive, but I hope to stay there at least once.
(See my other Disney related posts) – Disney released its Mickey Mouse & Pluto wallpaper for computers and mobile devices today. The theme is Christmas Tree Decorating. You will find these FREE wallpapers for desktop or mobile devices for your holiday enjoyment.

I will be looking forward to seeing Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” when it comes out on July 24, 2020. I rode the Jungle Cruise ride for the first time at Disneyland back in the late ’50s. The ride can now be enjoyed at four of the Disney parks: Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, and Hong Kong Disneyland. It was one of the top-level rides when Disneyland opened in 1955. The synopsis per IMDB:
Based on Disneyland’s theme park ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travelers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals and reptiles, but with a supernatural element.
This looks like it will be another fun movie with Dwayne Johnson.
(See my other Disney related posts) – Once again Disney has released new wallpaper files for both the desktop and mobile devices. The wallpaper features the Sleeping Beauty witches Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather along with fireworks. You can see the complete collection of free Disney wallpapers here.
(See my other WWII and Disney related posts) – The animated short (07:52) film “Der Fuehrer’s Face” was released January 1, 1943. It features the popular Donald Duck having a nightmare about working in a WWII Nazi factory. This American propaganda film was intended to help sell war bonds.
The film was originally titled “Donald Duck in Nutzi Land”. The title was changed to “Der Fuehrer’s Face” after Spike Jones released a version of the song “Der Fuehrer’s Face” in September of 1942 that was written for the film. The film “Der Fuehrer’s Face” won an Oscar for the Best Animated Short Film at the 15th Academy Awards in March of 1943.
If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these two pages of mine of interest.
The “World War II Sources” page is a constantly growing collection of more than 320 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II era in history.
The “World War II Timeline” page expands almost daily and shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
The “About WWII” page is a collection of links to posts that I have made over the years that are relevant to WWII.
