Dateline Disney

1938: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is released in theaters.


Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The first animated feature film to be released by Walt Disney and the first animated feature to be released in Technicolor.

Despite critics at the time that discounted the significance of the film (as it was an animated feature), Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs became an instant success and a timeless classic. Ultimately Snow White would pave the way for the future of animated films.

In 2008 the film celebrates it's 70th anniversary. A tribute to the film, "The Fairest One of All" can be seen at Disney's California Adventure in the Disney Animation attraction located in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot area.

Awww, I remember all of that stuff.

I remember trying so hard all day to get my last few credits to get the quest machine. And I got the last 6,000 I needed from a trade and then I got the machine about 10 minutes before VMK closed for the night

Everest Month was one of my favorite months in VMK! I think that the VMK Room Makeover idea was great, the rooms turned out wonderful! It also seems that each month that passed in VMK, the Best Guest Room, Game, and Quests were becoming better than before.

I found it quite exciting to see what a VMK member was going to come up with next!

I would like to continue this post saying that this is now a sad week considering events that occurred last year. (If you noticed who won best quest).

The superbowl rooms were so intense. It was definitely fun to hang out in them during the superbowl.
