While I’m still trying to get my life back to normal, I found this video on YouTube.  Disneyland Showtime is by far my favorite vintage Disney special.  The following video shows Kurt Russell talking about the making of the Haunted Mansion (which the special was promoting) and the Osmonds, Russell and EJ Peaker from Hello Dolly riding the newly opened attraction.

Yes, it’s true, I am definitely an “old soul”… I get a little weak at the knees when I see Donny Osmond (at least 25 years my senior), and one of my greatest Disney Dreams is to meet Marie Osmond and have her sign one of my many Disney dolls of her creation.  Laugh if you must, but enjoy this little piece of Disney history, released in 1970…
