Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Two months after the Disney Wonder returned from its dry dock, the ship is looking better than ever in its more than 17-year history. With tons of new experiences and re-themed spaces, it’s no wonder why many cruise-goers may opt to set sail on this vessel.

I recently returned from a seven-day voyage aboard the Disney Wonder, and I am here to share details on the novel experiences aboard Disney Cruise Line’s second ship.

Disney In Depth: 2016 Animation Battle: ‘Moana’ v. ‘Finding Dory’ v. ‘Zootopia’
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

The Walt Disney Studios released three critically/viewer acclaimed films in 2016 that also were major financial hits – Moana still pending, but early signs look favorable; Finding Dory; and Zootopia.

Which of the three films, though, is the best? That’s like picking a favorite child, considering each movie’s unique strengths. To help determine the winner – in my book, at least – I have established a bunch of categories that apply to all of the films. Let the battle commence!

Disney In Depth: Book Review: ‘Poster Art Of The Disney Parks’
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Poster Art of the Disney Parks
Hardcover
Written by Daniel Handke and Vanessa Hunt
Disney Editions
Release Date: September 11, 2012

These images summon us to enter the Disney theme parks, prompting us to come up with fantastical ideas of what they hold in store. The poster art found at the entrances of Disney’s Magic Kingdom-style parks, as well as at Disney’s many other theme parks and destinations, are sometimes as fascinating to visually digest as the attractions are to experience. I know I felt that way as a child, always attracted to the visual majesty of such simple teasers. Apparently many others felt that way, too. As Disney Legend and renowned Imagineer Tony Baxter writes, that artwork remained in his mind in anticipation of entering Disneyland.

The 2012 book Poster Art of the Disney Parks possesses glossy, gorgeous visuals of tons of attractions (up to the release of the title), as well as some helpful commentary on their development and symbolism.

50 Defining Moments Since Walt Disney Died (Part 1)

Fifty years ago this December, the world lost an entertainment icon who defined much of pop culture and Americana during the 20th century. The passing of Walt Disney, unexpected to many who were unaware of his lung cancer struggles, reverberated across the globe.

This special three-part edition of Disney In Depth (the first released now in September; with the following two to debut in October and November, respectively) recognizes 50 defining moments in The Walt Disney Company’s history over these past 50 years (1967 – 2016).

Disney In Depth: Predicting The Success Of ABC’s Fall 2016 Schedule
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

ABC begins this fall season with a new president in charge (Channing Dungey) and a handful of popular shows (long-running Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family), but with a lot of sore spots. Last season saw several renewals, but none of them were breakout hits. Expect ABC to come back swinging with a few surefire contenders for most buzz-worthy, and hopefully, with solid ratings that actually sustain the series.

This edition of Disney In Depth previews the potential success – and failure, unfortunately, in a few cases – of ABC’s Fall 2016 Schedule, both new and returning shows.
