Four Years of The Disney Project… and Counting!

I know the “big” anniversaries end in 5 and 0, so maybe I’ll throw a party next year. But for now, I would like to say thanks to all of you. On June 25, 2011, I started a tiny little Disney fan blog. A few months later, I began writing for a major Disney fan site. And then another. And then another. Since I guess I’m waiting for next year to honor the site’s 5th anniversary, I’ll save the ever-intriguing “history of The Disney Project” till then. But for now, let’s talk about the future.

I have definitely slowed way down on my Disney writing and even podcasting. What do busy people say? “Life got in the way”? Well busy people are right. It can. It does. It did. But now, it took a bit of a sidestep. I am writing this post from my couch, waiting for 2 more hours to tick by so I can head to SFO and board my first ever flight to Asia, and both Asia Disney resorts. It goes without saying that I am beside myself with anticipation. I am also, however, looking forward to what's in store for The Disney Project.

After my return from Asia (early July), I have a few “Disney projects” planned for you guys (see what I did there). I am actually pretty excited about each of them, so much so that I decided to give you all the sneak peak from my couch.

Project 1: If you live in/near the Bay Area, please use this notice as a “Save the Date”. The Disney Project will be bringing you its 2nd live event in San Francisco on Saturday, November 14. Our last event was a huge success, and for that I can’t thank those who attended enough. Event number two will be smaller in scale, but just as exciting. More details are forthcoming, but for now, please set November 14, 2015 aside.

Project 2: The Disney Project is going to delve into the world of vlogging! Not weekly, mind you, since I live nowhere near a Disney park. However I do live near The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, so expect the occasional episode from there. Additionally, when I do visit the parks, I may have some cool things to share with you guys. I am also lucky enough to be friends with a Disney personality or two, so be on the lookout for possible cameos. Like Project #1, more details to come.

Project 3: But the most exciting, and by far, the most important part of our Disney Project, in fact, the heart of everything—is a book. Yep, finally! I have written for so many different Disney sites over the years, I have been asked more than once as to when I was going to join the world of Disney authors. Well the answer is, 2016. I have what I believe to be a pretty neat idea, and once again, more details to come. This project is the one I am the most excited about, because out of all of my creative endeavors, writing is the one I actually do fairly well.  

That’s it for now, folks. I just wanted to give you guys a quick update before I depart for Asia. If you’re reading this, and technically you are, thank you so much for supporting my little Disney fan blog. I’m so excited about what’s coming up, and I’ll do my best to make these projects entertaining for you.
