It was a big week of Disney announcements, observations, retrospectives and blogospherical musings. Here were some highlights, in no particular order:

Main Street Gazette took an introspective, sentimental look at Walt Disney World memories. Needless to say, many like myself share Ryan's feelings. You should be reading this blog everyday.

Jungle is "101" goes poolside at the Polynesian Resort, accompanied with some great photos and a nice nostalgic vibe that I absolutely share with author Mike. The last few trips prevented me from stopping at our family favorite resort but this time around, I will be making a visit.

The Disney Chick tries to figure out why The Sorcerer's Apprentice tanked at the box office last weekend. In my opinion, her post-mortem renders the mystery solved!

Progress City, U.S.A. takes a break from the Herb Ryman Centennial celebration to look at what's possibly on the horizon for Walt Disney's Animation Studios.

Imagineering Disney has some amazing photos of the Progress City model then and now along with a story about an attempt to restore the model.

The Disney Food Blog has been a great resource for planning my first Food & Wine Festival trip this October. You should be reading AJ's up-to-the-minute updates on the festival. In the meantime, I also enjoyed the blog's look at a favorite quick eatery in Disneyland: Bengal Barbecue.
