I’ve discussed before Disney’s magical ability to make you fork over an absurd amount of money with a smile on your face. I’ve previously attributed it to fairy dust… but I think it’s because as you’re grinning whilst you empty your child’s college fund, the Disney cast members making minimum wage have an even bigger grin as they bend over backwards to grant your heart’s desire.

For those who aren’t obsessively following Disney park updates, Disney World has partnered with James Cameron in order to bring his vision of Avatar to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the form of a new land. The project has been shelved and then unshelved, and it’s still in very early stages. Read More…

So a few hours after I blogged about all the dragon hype, Disney released a tweet containing this video. They did release their dragon tonight, a special treat for the media event celebrating New Fantasyland. Happy Birthday Walt, have a dragon!
If you’re like me, you’ve been following Gary B on Twitter as he posts all of Disney’s “dragon updates.” If you’re not, you should. He’s the one behind the official parks blog who has been teasing us with all the videos and photos lately.

Happy Birthday Walt!
Have a four part harmony!
