August 31, 2013: The Love Bug, Monsters, Inc. and Thomas Edison.

Buddy Hackett is a very funny man and a bonafied Disney Legend (2003). Hackett was born on this day in 1924 in Brooklyn, New York. Hackett was in the extremely successful live-action feature The Love Bug and the voice of Scuttle the seagull in The Little Mermaid. Since they’ve removed Herbie from Lights, Motors, Action, let’s honor Hackett by visiting Under the Sea with the Little Mermaid in New Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom.

Academy Award winner James Coburn was born on this date in 1928 in Laurel, Nebraska. Coburn, a star of westerns and action films, stared as Henry J. Waternoose in Monsters, Inc. The Monsters, Inc. / Monsters University universe is all over Hollywood Studios. Go and wallow in it, it’s fun.

1897: Thomas Edison patented his movie camera. If there were no movie cameras, there were no movies and no Disney Brothers making their animated shorts and starting down the path that leads us to today. Again, Hollywood Studios is dedicated to the movies and the Hollywood that never was. We love it.

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