Delta Dreamflight Press Kit – Disney Themepark Park Ride

Delta Dreamflight was a ride at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Opened in 1989, it replaced one of my favorite rides as a kid, If You Had Wings, which was sponsored by Eastern Airlines. When Eastern dropped their sponsorship, Delta stepped in and became the official airline of Walt Disney World. This media package was released during the opening festivities and contains promotional materials, Delta collateral and a photo....

Triple Dub Club Cyberneighborhood

I was going through some old backups today and I came across some images that took me back. In 1996, I was a founding member of the Triple Dub Club Cyberneighborhood. (WWW, three Ws, get it?) This was an online Disney community founded by a number of individuals from the Disney Fans Bulletin Board (DFBB) on Prodigy. Remember Prodigy?

The World of Disney store has been around for about 15 years, but prior to its opening, there was another iconic character themed flying gizmo at the Disney (Village) Marketplace. It was Marc’s Mechanical Marvel. I pulled out my old home videos...

Disney Paper Vault – “Horse In the Gray Flannel Suit” Press Kit

“The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit” was one of several Dean Jones films put out by Disney in the 1960s. It’s pretty standard fare, but I remember enjoying it as a kid. It’s definitely not as good as my favorite Disney-Jones film, “Blackbeard’s Ghost”. That film had one of my cinematic heroes, Peter Ustinov in the title role, so it’s pretty hard to beat. This film did have Morey...
