On this day (15th January 1905) Elias Paul 'Allie' Wrubel was born in New Middletown, Connecticut. His Disney connection is that he worked with Lyricist Ray Gilbert on Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah. This song won an Oscar in 1947.
The then CEO - Michael Eisner - announced plans to open a 4th theme park at Walt Disney World.
Moving to the 16th January 1890, Edna Francis was born in Reece, Kansas. In 1925, she married Roy O. Disney and five years later gave birth to her only son - Roy E Disney. An ink artist in her own right, she was made a Disney legend in 2003 - some nineteen years after her death. She sadly passed away in 1984 at the age of 94.

Changes and more...
Well this week turned out to be a very busy news week...where do we start?
After much teasing via Instagram and other social medias we finally have a date for the opening of Tron Lightcycle Run. Disney started with an image of a high score table which left fans deciphering the scores for clues. The following day a 'reel' showing images from the game revealed what appeared to be two 4's...following a slue of comments Disney very quickly revealed the official opening date of 4th April 2023.
Next we had news about the return of 'Happily Ever After' at the Magic Kingdom and 'Epcot Forever' at Epcot, with both returning on 3rd April 2023. Along with confirmation that the barges will be removed from World Showcase Lagoon.
But wait we have more news for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland! Changes are coming very soon involving the removal of self parking charges at resort hotels at WDW, annual pass holder benefits and bonus content for Genie +. Read more about these over on the Disney Parks Blog (WDW & Disneyland) or better still listen to the show!
