In the Walt Disney World news, sponsored by Small World Vacations, MousePlanet's preferred travel provider, all of the news came from this past Monday's Walt Disney World Park Update, and links to the various information reported can be found there.
All of the Disneyland news came from this past Tuesday's Disneyland Park Update, and links to the various information reported can be found there. Since we recorded, MouseAdventure has, indeed, sold out.

Our Tip of the Week came from Kimberly Barto, who wrote about the Disney Visa card.
Our featured topics this week was the Disney annual shareholder meeting. Mark talked about his experiences there; why Disney held the meeting in New Orleans; the pros (there are some) and cons of Mrs. Evelyn Y. Davis, the self-proclaimed "world's most famous shareholder"; the questions asked by Carol and Rich Koster, MousePad members and proprietors of the Disney Echo forum; and what was and was not talked about at the meeting.
This week's Featured Attraction is the The Great Movie Ride at the Disney-MGM Studios.
This week's Review system spotlight focuses on Yamabuki in the Paradise Pier Hotel at the Disneyland Resort.
The Magical Moment was also from Kimberly Barto, whose children had a great experience with Goofy at Epcot's Character Connection.
