Step Back in Time – Magic Kingdom

Posted on
I first visited Disney World in January 1972. Over the years, I took a number of pictures while vacationing here. Looking back, I wish I had taken more, but then I have to remind myself, film was expensive and having the photos developed added to the cost. So I cherish the pictures I did take … Continue reading "Step Back in Time – Magic Kingdom"

Typical Research Day – Animal Kingdom

Posted on
I thought I’d talk about what I do to verify Hidden Mickey sightings that folks send me. As many of you know, I like to use fairly stringent criteria for the “classic” (three-circle) Mickey.
