February Marks 15 Years for the Disney Institute

Maybe you're familiar with the company, and maybe not, but the Disney Institute has something worth celebrating: they've been in business for 15 years. In February of 1996, the Institute opened its doors near Downtown Disney in the area that now is home to the Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa.

Disney Animator Bill Justice Passes Away

Bill Justice, a Disney animator, passed away at a Santa Monica nursing home last Thursday. He had just turned 97. Fans might not recognize his name, but undoubtedly know some of the characters he helped bring to life by animation for Disney favorites.

He began his career with Disney in 1937 and went on to work on such classics as "Fantasia" and "Bambi." In fact, he animated Thumper, a beloved "Bambi" character, as well as fan favorites Chip and Dale. The opening Mickey Mouse March for the 1950's show "The Mickey Mouse Club" is also among his animation credits.
