Today In Disney History ~ July 8th


The Legend of the Lion King show opened in 1994 in the Magic Kingdom, and was a stage show that retold the movie’s story using life size puppets. It replaced the 3-D movie Magic Journeys that opened in 1987 and closed in 1993. The show used puppet and animation and told Simba’s story. When the show closed some of the puppets were  were sent to the Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris for the show Animagique.

Michele is a life long Disney fan, and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday’s. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
