20 years since its release to theaters, Lilo and Stitch seems to have ascended to the level of classic Disney animated films like Peter Pan, Beauty and Beast and The Lion King.

A few weeks Katie and I were invited to be contestants on the Theme Park Trivia Show. We were so excited to have the opportunity to test our theme park knowledge and have some fun with a fellow themed entertainment creator. This show is internet based, but the production value is wonderful and Ryan brings all the whimsical details you'd want in a park based game show.
The Walt Disney Archives and other factions of the Walt Disney Company have expanded their reach in the last few years to bring unique exhibits to museums across the United States and the world. 2022 is no different and there are so many opportunities to experience Disney right where you live. From getting up close to some of the most iconic costumes and props in movie history, to learning about the science behind Pixar animation, there is always something unique and inspiring to see when Disney comes to town.
Ever since I became a Walt Disney World Cast Member and went through Traditions classes (initial training for all Cast Members where they learn about company culture and traditions) I've become curious and enthralled with all the details inside the Disney Parks. What really kicked it off was the part of training where we got a special tour of the park where we'd be working. For me this was Disney's Hollywood Studios (then Disney-MGM Studios).
