February 23, 2013: Remembering When You Could Hang Out With Tarzan

On this date in 2000, Phil Collins won a Grammy for his music in Disney’s Tarzan and Randy Newman won for his instrumental work for A Bug’s Life. I wish I could direct you to the Tarzan show at the Animal Kingdom but, alas, it is no longer there. We really enjoyed it. At this point about the best I can offer is to look for Turk around the Animal Kingdom and have a picture taken. Now we can honor Randy Newman a bit easier at the same park, visit It’s Tough to be a Bug inside the Tree of Life.

We remember that Tarzan Rocked!

Inside this tree you'll learn that it is tough to be a bug.

Today is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. When I was in college I had a professor that said we should all let our children teeth on dog biscuits. The idea was that their jaws would develop more thoroughly; they would have more room for their teeth and never require braces. I never appreciated dog biscuits to that degree but, from time to time, Duke gets a treat. Let’s go in search of Pluto at Walt Disney World. You can find him at all the parks, just take a little time and make sure to be nice.

National Banana Bread Day, a day to take those brown bananas and make something wonderful with them. In fact, the brown bananas have more sugar and make sweeter bread. Now at Walt Disney World you can celebrate a different kind of brown banana, a cold, chocolate covered banana on a stick. Just look for the cold treat stands all over the parks and remember, food tastes better on a stick.

Tennis season has already started around here. Last Monday was the first official day of practice for my son’s high school varsity tennis team and today is Play Tennis Day. If there’s something going on at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports head over there and celebrate, otherwise, I advise seeking out Goofy who is always a sporty fellow.

Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
