The Adventurer's Club (virtual)

Found this over on Boing Boing:
Walt Disney World's Adventurer's Club was a nightclub in the now-shuttered Pleasure Island area, where live players and animatronic trophies voiced by actors behind the scenes (who monitored the action with hidden cameras). It was one of my absolute favorite places at the park, and it shut along with the otherwise lacklustre Pleasure Island in 2008.

WDW's retirement homes I just have to have enough in retirement to buy the slum home for $1.5M:
Today Disney unveiled Golden Oak, a one-of-a-kind luxury residential resort offering the unprecedented opportunity to purchase a home at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Named after Walt Disney’s “Golden Oak Ranch” in California, Golden Oak will offer single-family custom homes priced between approximately $1.5 and $8 million on the 980-acre site.

Toy Story 3

All I can really say about it is : WOW!  We went opening night (2 adults/2 kids) and all of us thought the movie was amazing.  I'm even thinking better than 1 & 2.  The ending was a perfect way to wrap up the trilogy.  Thanks Pixar for making a Disney movie the way we all think Walt would have liked.

Disney Employee Caught Stealing From Guests

Ouch...cast member caught stealing credit card information:

A Disney employee is off the job after being charged with stealing from tourists. Investigators say the woman would help visitors check in to Disney's Saratoga Springs and Old Key West resorts, but guests had no idea she was using a device to steal their credit card information.
Investigators say the woman was found with at least 15 skimming devices and prosecutors say the Disney worker is responsible for $83,000 in losses.
