  • We will be coming to Disney World during the last week in November and the first couple of days in December. We love the Candle Light Processional. Can you tell us when the list of narrators will be released? We are all eagerly awaiting it.

  • I would love to see more FIGMENT!!! He’s the most under-appreciated character in all of Disney yet he inspires sparks of imagination and happiness in everyone, just the way Walt would have wanted it.

  • I would love to see Pluto drawn! He’s always been my favorite character 😀

  • I’ll be bringing my 8 year old daughter to Disney World in a couple of months. I’ve heard that you have special offers for anyone celebrating their birthday at the park. I’d like to know what sort of things she/we have to look forward to…..
