Disney's new night time spectacular, World of Color, is absolutely amazing. Unfortunately it's kind of tricky to see the show the way it was designed to be seen - kind of like Disneyland's fireworks with everything they project on the castle.

Hey there, you found my Disney home site.

Picture I took during the 100 Mickey's Exhibit in 2003

I will now proceed to baffle and scare you with my most impressive knowledge on a variety of Disney related subjects.

Curious. It's a map of Disneyland!
I wonder what would happen if I clicked on any of the lands?

If you click on the lands, you can discover my tribute to each of the lands and maybe a little something more about some of the attractions...
