My 2nd Anniversary at Chip & Company

Today, November 26, 2012, is my second anniversary of writing for my friend Chip from Chip & Company!  It has been a great two years, and I have met some absolutely incredible people from my time there!  If you have a moment, head on over and look at some of the Disney friends I have who stand head and shoulders above me in their Disney passion!

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia — Alice in Wonderland!

Welcome back to another edition of Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia as we share a special post of Disney trivia with you!  Along with my co-hosts Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Heidi from Heidi’s Head, I’m Mike from My Dreams of Disney!

Today I’ve got a Disney tidbit from This Day in Disney History for November 26.

Alice in Wonderland

Charles L. Dodgson sends a handwritten manuscript to 12-year-old Alice Liddell, one of the three daughters of Henry George Liddell, the dean of the local church. The manuscript titled “Alice’s Adventures Underground” (a story first created in July 1862) is an early Christmas present. The manuscript will later be renamed and published as “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” under his pen name Lewis Carroll. Dodgson, a proficient photography hobbyist, uses family, friends and colleagues (including Alice) as subjects for his photographs and creative inspiration.

This and many other incredible things happened on November 26!  For double the fun, though, here is also something special that happened on November 27 involving Snow White!

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Did you know…

November 27, 1937: The final cels for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are painted. The film’s grand premiere is less than a month away. Disney’s first animated feature-length production has required thirty-two animators, 102 assistants, 167 “in-betweeners” (those who filled in bits of action), 20 lay-out artists, 25 artists doing water color backgrounds, 65 effects animators and 158 young women adept at inking and painting.
