Disney In Depth: Revisit These Overlooked Disney Songs (Part 2)
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

More Disney songs, specifically from the past 15 years, more or less, are most upsettingly forgotten in light of a few breakout pieces. “Let it go,” I tell myself, tongue in cheek. There are memorable songs beyond the realm of Frozen, Tangled, and Moana.

In this Disney In Depth I follow-up part one of my list of overlooked Disney songs with ten more that deserve multiple listens – and downloads, too, should they be accessible.

Disney In Depth: Revisit These Overlooked Disney Songs (Part 1)
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Hundreds of new Disney songs surfaced in the past few decades, many of them defining our childhood and young adult years. We listened to them on an endless loop via our cassettes and CDs. Many tunes, however, may have escaped our memories or even not entered our lives at all. The world of Disney music is vast in both scope and setting, ranging from our television screens and home video to the theme parks and on stage.

This first edition of a two-part feature on Disney In Depth explores the songs you may have missed or forgotten, but should very well revisit.

Disney In Depth: Book Review: Maps Of The Disney Parks

Maps of the Disney Parks
Hardcover
Text By Kevin and Susan Neary
Maps Curated by Vanessa Hunt
Publisher: Disney Editions
Release date: October 18, 2016

How would we live without maps? They give us direction and purpose. Some lead us down new paths. Others familiarize us with common settings. The park maps we snatch upon entering any of the Disney theme parks accomplish just this. Even more, the meta atmosphere of Disney often means there are maps within maps. Thankfully a new book from Disney Editions titled Maps of the Disney Parks compiles both the dated and novel park maps, as well as maps featured within the park settings.

Duo Kevin and Susan Neary, along with Disney Imagineer Vanessa Hunt, have produced a wonderful publication of lush visuals galore that should nicely complement your edition of Hunt’s Poster Art of the Disney Parks.

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.
