Dumbo: 70th Anniversary Edition Flying In Today

19 Sep

Dumbo: 70th Anniversary Edition is out today for the first time in Blu-Ray high definition featuring 7.1 Digital Theater System High-Def Surround Sound today and I couldn’t be more excited!!!

While I have always loved the story of Dumbo, it means a lot more to me now that I am a Mom. We have all those ‘Mom’ moments where we have wanted to protect and hold our kids like Jumbo held Dumbo in her ears. I know I am a sap, but I was a complete mess during this scene!!!

Also, I think that this might be the beginning of my fear of clowns!!! These guys were so mean and creepy!!!

What I love the most is that just when you think that Dumbo has reached the lowest point of the movie when the crows are picking on him so harshly, the story turns and he finds out that he CAN fly and makes the most of his talents. I have to admit that I laughed my buns off when Dumbo swoops above the clowns and the other elephants and gives them a taste of their own medicine!

Another super interesting fact about Dumbo:70th Anniversary Edition is that the Walt Disney Studios Restoration Team turned to the US Library of Congress who store the original 70 year old nitrate camera negative in their film vaults, and for reference, to an original 1941 ‘release’ print, held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). Using this rare nitrate “dye-transfer” Technicolor print for color reference, the team was able to restore Dumbo to the color settings most likely approved by Walt Disney himself, which will be seen in their full splendor for the first time in 70 years, on the Blu-Ray debut.

In addition, the rare film print (housed as part of the UCLA Film and Television Archives collection) proved to be the earliest surviving generation of the original audio for Dumbo which provided a unique source from which to build the new Disney Enhanced Home Theatre (DEHT) mix for the Blu-Ray release.

Plus there are TONS of extra added bonus features on this Blu-Ray/DVD Set! Interactive games, deleted scenes, bonus shorts, and a ‘Taking Flight: The Making of Dumbo’ talks about the importance of Dumbo in animation history.

After having the opportunity to revisit this movie as an adult, I can honestly say that the story means so much more to me and that the re-mastered quality makes me appreciate Dumbo so much more than I thought I ever could!

Create Your Own Treats At Goofy’s Candy Company!

16 Sep

I am always on the lookout for something different and fun to try as I am traveling around the parks, and one of our favorite places to explore is the Downtown Disney Marketplace.

On a previous trip with a friend I found the Create Your Own Treats at Goofy’s Candy Company, and I thought that it would be a perfect end to a girl’s evening!

After a super yummy dinner at Earl of Sandwich with Shalon Given, we headed over to Goofy’s to make our own delicious dessert!!!

Walking up we were overwhelmed by the choices, but after some careful consideration Shalon chose a Mickey Krispy Rice Treat and I chose the topped marshmallows!

Watching the cast members make our treats was a lot of fun, but definitely not as much fun as eating them!

I can’t wait to try this with Zoe…okay maybe I can’t wait to try the pretzel rods…either way this is a great way to have a little fun and eat it, too!
