If you're at Disney California Adventure anytime until January 6th, you've GOT to visit the ¡Viva Navidad! area and see this great street performance! Then grab some sweet tamales or other Mexican food and enjoy some of the live performances on the bandstand! My family and I had so much fun!

Walt Disney was born on this day in 1901, so I thought I'd post a rare photo of him. This is from the West Coast premiere of Disney's "The Living Desert." Pictured are Russell Haverstrite, Mrs. Walt Disney, Mrs. Spencer Tracy, Walt Disney and Mrs. Russell Haverstrite. Held at the Fine Arts Theatre this event was sponsored by the John Tracy Clinic for deaf children, an organization that Walt was a big supporter of.

Not bad for 85! It was on this day in 1928 that the Disney cartoon short "Steamboat Willie" was first shown to the public, introducing the world to Mickey and Minnie. The film is actually a parody, loosely based on "Steamboat Bill, Jr.," a silent movie starring Buster Keaton which was released that same year. In that film, the good-hearted Willie, similar to Mickey Mouse’s role, is the son of the rough and tumble Steamboat Bill, parodied in Disney’s version by Peg Leg Pete. If you want to impress your friends the next time you watch "Steamboat Willie," you can sing along to the 1910 song that Mickey whistles, "Steamboat Bill, steaming down the Mississippi. Steamboat Bill, a mighty man was he. Steamboat Bill, steaming down the Mississippi. Trying to beat the record of the Robert E. Lee." By the way, I took this picture at the Disney Studios in 1992.
