This Family Fun Weekend was definitely entertaining. I’m not a super big country music fan or anything, but this was oodles of fun. Some of our favorite characters like Mickey, Minnie and Goofy were decked out in their best Western duds as they greeted guests and took photos, while Chip and Dale led some country line dancing lessons. (I caught Pluto line dancing!) We even had quilt makers!
Here are some of my photos from this weekend.
- January 23, 2011 – Kickin’ Country Weekend at Disneyland, Family Fun Weekends (mouseinfo.com)
We don’t spend a lot of time at Disney’s Animal Kingdom except to see some of the shows and hit a couple of the significant attractions. There are also lots of photo opportunities and we take advantage of those too. On our last visit, for some reason, we got there very early (for us) and had a chance to experience the opening ceremony. We travel to Walt Disney World very regularly and really didn’t realize that there was an official opening ceremony at the Animal Kingdom. It was very cute and actually quite fun.
You know what, it beats the heck out of just unlocking the doors and letting the crowds thunder into the wilds of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I’m all for fun in most forms and this is cute, fun, and a great way to start your day. As always, enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!!

Disneyland introduced their all new Family Fun Weekends, starting January 14 and continuing on through March 6. The festivities can be found at the Big Thunder Ranch festival arena. (I’m glad it’s back there because then I get to pass the goats on the way. I love the goats.)
The first weekend (January 14-16) was Fiesta Weekend. Characters like Mickey, Minnie and Donald were dressed in their fiesta best, and Mariachi Divas performed for the crowd. (If you’ve never seen them before, you can catch them performing at California Adventure from time to time.)
Here are some photos from the event! And be on the lookout for my next post about last weekend’s Kickin’ Country Weekend!

The New Era “Vintage Disney 59FIFTY Cap Collection” features a quintet of caps inspired by Disney’s timeless animated short films of the 1930s. Never before have the classic images of Mickey Mouse and friends been given this kind of high end headwear treatment. Using scenes from a handful of unforgettable stories – “The Mad Doctor,” “Lonesome Ghosts,” “Mickey’s Rival” and “Thru The Mirror” – these five caps spark memories and complete outfits, perfect for collectors and fashion enthusiasts alike. (see below for pictures)
The caps are available at www.neweracap.com for $34.99 – $37.99 SRP.
- “Thru the Mirror” – $34.99 SRP
- Inspired by the classic 1936 short film of the same name, which was itself inspired by the Lewis Carroll story “Through the Looking-Glass,” the Thru the Mirror cap features Mickey Mouse on the run, with the minions of the Queen of Hearts hot on his tail. The undervisor features another moment from the film, in which Mickey is taken by surprise when he sees his distorted image in the mirror. ($34.99 SRP)
- “The Mad Doctor” – $34.99 SRP
- Released on January 21, 1933, The Mad Doctor short features Pluto, Mickey’s best friend, along with evil scientist Doctor XXX. Mickey dreams that Pluto has been captured by an evil scientist who hopes to graft his head onto a hen’s body. This cap depicts the frightening images of the scientist’s castle and a terrified Mickey unsuccessfully trying to avoid capture. ($34.99 SRP)
- “The Mad Doctor” – $34.99 SRP
- The second cap from The Mad Doctor short reveals images of Doctor XXX at work. Featuring equations, as well as a very unhappy Pluto and Mickey trying to save the hound from the villain’s castle, the illustrations immerse you right into Mickey’s dream.
- “Lonesome Ghosts” – $35.99 SRP
- The holiday classic Lonesome Ghosts was released on December 24, 1937. This ghostly tale finds Mickey, Donald and Goofy running a ghost-exterminating agency when they receive a call from four lonely, green phantoms. The mischievous ghosts invite these fun-loving ghost busters over to their haunted home with the aim of driving them crazy. But things don’t go as planned when Mickey and the gang finally chase out the ghosts, as shown by their satisfied expressions on the undervisor.
- “Mickey’s Rival” – $37.99 SRP
- Mickey’s Rival debuted on June 20, 1936, featuring Mortimer, the drugstore cowboy, and Mickey coming head to head (as shown on the cap’s front) in this animated love story. Minnie’s heart is the prize here in a feud between Mickey and his newfound rival. As shown on the undervisor, Mortimer invades Mickey’s and Minnie’s picnic, wooing a very receptive Minnie and angering poor Mickey. But when a ferocious bull charges their way, Mortimer runs, and Mickey comes to the rescue and saves Minnie.
