I've been telling anyone who would listen since Wednesday when I saw it that they needed to get to their local theater as quickly as possible and see 'Frozen'. Ever since I was able to attend the D23 Expo over the summer and saw Idina Menzel ("Elsa") singing "Let It Go" live on stage (arguably the highlight of the film) I've been champing at the bit to see it myself. And I certainly wasn't disappointed!

Whew! The "Disneyland Hangover" is in full effect this morning!

First, before anything else is said, I would be completely remiss if I didn't start off today's article by wishing a very happy birthday to the man who, without his vision, whimsy, imagination, and business saavy, none of us would be blogging about what we are: Walt Disney. Today, had he lived, and he may just have if cancer hadn't taken him too early, would have been his 112th birthday, and not a trip to Disneyland goes by where I don't take a moment to just stand in one spot, close my eyes, maybe even turn in a circle, and just imagine myself in the same spot he probably stood in at one point. It's surreal and from the bottom of so many of our childhood hearts, we thank you Uncle Walt. When I first created and started blogging at Days in the Park, one of my dreams was to one day (I've said this before) set foot inside what was to be one of Walt's very special places, Club 33. I've long since been blessed enough to have done that, and blessed even more to have been now on several occasions. Each time is special and full of new memories and times, and tonight I will have the honor (and to me, that's exactly what it is) of dining at The Club for the seventh time. Perhaps the most memorable so far though was being invited to spend Walt's 111th birthday, last December, in a private party celebrating his life and legacy at The Club. Tonight I will be celebrating his 112th with many of the same people, making new memories which I'll no doubt treasure forever.
