August 29, 2013: Hoyle, Mary Poppins and Michael Jackson.

Established in 1769, According To Hoyle Day is a day to remember Edmond Hoyle who wrote the rules to card games and the instructions to play them properly. The phrase, “According To Hoyle,” has become synonymous with playing fairly and by the rules. Edmond lived in London, England for many years so let’s visit the English Pavilion at EPCOT in honor of Mr. Hoyle.

This one is interesting: More Herbs, Less Salt Day. Many of us have special dietary needs, I am a diabetic with a peanut allergy, and Walt Disney World is more than capable of taking care of those needs. If you need a low salt diet as the name of this day suggests, simply let WDW Dining know when you make your dining reservations and they’ll take care of every detail. Enjoy fine dining that won’t destroy your health.

1958: Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana. Michael Jackson had a long and interesting career. We’ll not judge nor criticize him here but simply say that at one time he was the most popular entertainer in the world. At his peak he made Captain EO, which was shown at Disney Parks all around the world. Captain EO is back at EPCOT and you can enjoy Michael Jackson at this prime in the Imagination Pavilion.

1964: Disney's Mary Poppins, starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke is released. Based on a series of children's books by P. L. Travers about a magical nanny who comes to work for a cold banker's unhappy family, the film features music by Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman. The profits from the film are used to develop the braking system for the Monorail at Walt Disney World.

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