Lost and Abandoned Disney Details

New Parkeologist – NOW WITH VIDEO!

Well, after a lot of begging Shane has seen it fit to promote me from lowly “guest contributor” to a full time parkeologist. That means that I will be diluting Shane’s enlightening prose with posts of my own from time to time.   Shane previously posted my attempted explanation of the Dinoland USA back story […]

Life Size Pixie Hollow

Tinkerbell wasn’t always this popular.  Sure, she has been kicking off fireworks shows for decades now, but that was just because it was sort of her job, not because little girls were clamoring for more Tink.  And while it’s definitely a thrill to see her glide down from the castle’s tallest spire, older Magic Kingdom […]
