Please Stand Clear of the Doors

From the Disney Geeks’ Daily Figment:

I submit to you the ultimate collectible: a monorail in your own backyard! Dan Pedersen of Fremont, California has constructed the ultimate reminder of a trip to WDW. For under $5,000.00 (not including his years of labor), Ken constructed a complex, usable monorail system in his own backyard. The monorail reaches a height of over eight feet and travels a lengthy 300 feet around his backyard, making several stops along the way.

World’s Oldest Hidden Mickey

17 Jun

Mr Broke Hoedown may not be a Disney fan, but he knows a Hidden Mickey when he sees it. A thousand-year old Mickey Mouse was recently discovered in Sweden. One can only hope that no copyright wackiness will ensue.

Vintage Mickey fans may notice that while the mouth doesn’t look much like our beloved mouse, the shape and size of the eyes is certainly reminiscent of Plane Crazy.
