The Pixar Movie Collection - in time for the Holidays please!

I was bumbling round Amazon.com looking for Gifts and I found that my favourite movies have been issued as a box set - Yeah!!!

Toy Story - Toy Story 2 - Finding Nemo - The Incredibles - A Bug's Life - Monsters, Inc. - Cars - Ratatouille all in the one set. Cool! Okay so I already own the majority of these movies but I just love a good box set.

Like music downloads cheaper than iTunes?

Dear all, if you didn't already know our friends at Amazon are now offering music downloads!

They are iTunes compatible and cheaper too! I have had a quick look at both the UK and US sites and the music library for both is quite impresive - and as a launch offer the UK store is offering selected albums - including the new ones from Coldplay, Take That, Girls Aloud and Will Young for only £3

An ex Cast Member Returns to the Magic!!!

An old friend of mine from my Disney Days, Kay, has posted a forum post about her first return trip to Disneyland Resort Paris since becoming a mother and it makes for interesting reading.

There is such a joy in her post, her delight at rediscovering her Disneyland through the eyes of her daughter - and such disappointment as you'll see in her post. I recommend it to you and I'd also like to hear your comments and reactions.

A Special Guest to visit Walt Disney World

A terminally-ill English teenager who refused a heart transplant has been granted her wish - a holiday in Disney World. The story of Hannah Jones, 13, has been one of the big news items in the UK for a couple of weeks now. And I thought I should share it with the community.

Hannah, who suffered heart failure as a result of treatment for leukaemia, will fly to Orlando on December 1 with her family and 39 other seriously ill or disabled children in a trip organised by the charity Caudwell Children.

Looking for a Walt Disney World Correspondent.

After the Mouse.com is looking for volunteer correspondents based in or around Orlando to help promote, update and champion the site to our Floridian friends.

A while ago Skipper joined the team representing AtM at Disneyland and we are looking to expand our team once more, this time at Walt Disney World.

We are looking for a bright, enthusiastic person to bring After the Mouse to Disney World Cast Members. You'll need to be or have been a Cast Member, live in or around Orlando and spend some of your leisure time in the Parks and Resorts. Interested?

Famous Cast Members

Everyone knows Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Brittany Spears were Mouseketeers but I seem to remember that there have been a few other famous faces that started their careers as real Cast Members.

Gwen Stefani was rumoured to have danced in the Disneyland Parades but can anyone confirm this... in fact can anyone name any more famous faces that have worn a Disney name tag?

Join me in congratulating an old friend and former Disney Director.

For those of you who worked at Disneyland Paris prior to the Millennium, I'm sure you'll be as pleased as we are to congratulate former Park Operations Director PY Gerbeau and his wife, news anchor woman Kate Gerbeau have had their baby!

Kate gave birth at the weekend to Chloe, a gorgeous little girl, who weighed in at 7 pounds and ten ounces. Mother and baby are both doing well.

Many congratulations to Kate and PY and welcome to the world to Chloe!
