Mickey’s Halloween Party – 2016 Disneyland

Posted on
One of the special events during Halloween Time each year is Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland. The parties take place on select evenings in September and October. Party goers must purchase a ticket to the event, and they usually sell out, sometimes several weeks in advance. Attending a party is the only way to see the Halloween Screams fireworks show, which I think is one of the best fireworks shows at Disneyland.

“Frozen:” A Tale of Two Unconventional Princesses

Posted on
When the details of "Frozen" first came out, there was a certain amount of concern that it would be anti-feminist. The fear that the original tale of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," which involved a female protagonist, Gerda, a female antagonist, The Snow Queen, and a largely-inert male rescue object, Kai, would be transformed into a conventional Disney Princess narrative caused a certain amount of hue and cry.
