Signs that You're in a Disney Park

Everything is matchy-matchy, themed, and ensembleized (new word) at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. It's like each land is wearing Garanimals (way before my time). But that's what we love, that extreme attention to detail that assists in...

Madame Leota's Spirit Captured
