Quick Update Note: I’ve been working alot so haven’t had time to update, but still very active! I will update soon as time permits, here is a dope article I found when doing some research on some knifes I wanted to purchase. I’ve been collecting 1930’s Disney Merch and almost lost $50 to a fake, good thing I found this article, will post here.

So Walt didn’t feature any rides at the Worlds Fair in Chicago however he did have a few merchandise items there unlike the 1964 World’s Fair. So check this read out.
There’s an old saying that if you repeat a lie often enough, people will eventually believe it. That applies not only to words but also to reproductions of antiques and collectibles.
Take the case of the Mickey Mouse 1933 Worlds Fair pocket knife.
A collector once wrote to ACRN to report this knife was being reproduced. He owned an original for which he paid $115. He wanted to let us know he found a reproduction in a nearby antique mall for only $8
Looks like a cat to me.
Day 5 WDW: Well not really WDW but still all in the same universe of sorts, we wanted to come specifically to check out Diagon Alley since last time the park was closing and we didn’t even discover it until by accident since it’s hidden! Crazy I know but finally we made it so heres some photos of our adventure! I’m not sure if it was because of the people or weather or park in general but this time around Universal Orlando seemed down right “ghetto” to me in a way.. I don’t know why.. it seems they have lost their class.
Famous Earth at the entry way!
Not sure why we wanted to check this place out, but none the less Hello Kitty was there. Their marketing team is whack trying to say Hello Kitty is not a fucking cat, what’s wrong with chu?
On my latest trip to Walt Disney World I saw a video of abandoned Disney stuff and one of them was the old Walt Disney World preview center. It was so close to our hotel and the Disney parks I had to go, so check out a little history and some of the photos I took of myself at the Preview Center below! Now it’s called the Amateur Athletic Union but it still looks like the preview center and even has a huge Mickey on the inside.
Here’s a little history about it below:
In mid-January, 1970, the Walt Disney World Preview Center became the first building on WDW property to be opened to the public. Near the intersection of Interstate 4 and State Road 535, the thoroughly modern glass, concrete and steel structure was situated on the southern shoreline of Lake Buena Vista along the then-quiet Preview Boulevard. This roadway would later become Hotel Plaza Boulevard, a main artery serving traffic to the WDW Village and a gathering of hotels. Hit Read More to see my full gallery
I think they are pink because they eat shrimp?
After our fishing excursion we went back to our hotel Port Orleans and changed and showered the fish off of us. Then set sail in our trusted minivan to Animal Kingdom (which we knew would be the hardest day). Since none of us are in shape and it’s the most treacherous territory to walk and it was also super hot that day which we were hoping would be a cool day!
Anyways I love Animal Kingdom, especially since Safari Mickey is my version of Mickey.
These parrots love to greet you when you walk in. No crackers pls (there gluten free).
Where to now? (busts out map) ok hit read more.
Disney Fishing Guide
So if you have someone you know who loves to fish, or you love to fish you can book a guided fishing excursion at Disney World. When I was younger we did it at EPCOT in the middle of the world showcase which was awesome!
This time around we booked it my for my dad and the guide took us to Disney Springs. We were picked up from our hotel at Port Orleans, and off we went on a Pontoon boat through the back alley’s of Disney Springs.
I’ll post a link of the site to book this, I think it was like $200 for 2 hours, and they include everything, sodas, rods, reels, and a guide who does all the work for you. Besides the fishing part the actual boat ride and just cruising around Disney Springs was way more awesome and adventurous then I thought it was going to be.

Cruising out of Port Orleans on our pontoon
Epic views, looks like the swamp bayou.
Wouldn’t all fit in one post, so bam we continue on to the World Showcase & Food & Wine Festival, first stop wine booth.
This was part of the chocolate/wine booth area which we didn’t stop at 11AM so we thought we’d come back here later in the night. We did grab a quick bite at wine booth =P
Hit that read more to continue on!
I made a gif out of the monorail pics I took.
Day 2 Blog Entry:
Today is the day my fatself is super happy because we are headed to the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival! If you don’t know what it is, it’s basically a bunch of different countries that you walk to instead of fly and try food from their culture, it’s amazeballs. They also have gluten free items at most of the countries so you glutenators can join in the fun. This will be a large blog post, if you missed Day 1 go back one blog post! Enjoy yourself.
Here we go!
